mcs5150: I never realized that schmuck is such an insulting term. If I get into any disagreements with any of you here I will not use that term. I will just call you an asshole instead :-D

Schmuck (pejorative)

Schmuck or shmuck in American English is a pejorative meaning an obnoxious, contemptible or detestable person, or one who is stupid or foolish. The word entered English from Yiddish, where it has similar pejorative meanings, but its original meaning in Yiddish is penis. Because of its vulgarity, the word is euphemized as schmoe, which was the source of Al Capp’s cartoon strip creature the shmoo. Variants include schmo and shmo.

Etymology

The German word Schmuck means “jewelry, adornments”; the equivalent in Yiddish is schmock or shmock. In German the pejorative “schmuck” would be Schmock, closer to the original Yiddish word. The transition of the word from meaning “jewel” to meaning “penis” is related to the description of a man’s genitals as “the family jewels.”

The Online Etymology Dictionary derives it from Eastern Yiddish shmok, literally “penis,” from Old Polish smok, “grass snake, dragon,” but Leo Rosten cites Dr. Shlomo Noble of the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research as saying that shmok derives from shmuck and not the other way around.

However, according to the lexicographer Michael Wex, the author of “How to Be a Mentsh (And Not a Shmuck),” the Yiddish and German “schmucks” are completely unrelated. “Basically, the Yiddish word comes out of baby talk,” Wex said. “A little boy’s penis is a shtekl, a ‘little stick.’ Shtekl became shmeckle, in a kind of baby-rhyming thing, and shmeckle became shmuck. Shmeckle is prepubescent and not a dirty word, but shmuck, the non-diminutive, became obscene.

I’ve burned copies with both ImgBurn and some older software I still use, and had no problems either time. (using Verbatim DVD+R DL discs)

My laptop really sucks when it comes to burning DVD9s. I end up with many more coasters than I do playable disks. But when I use my son’s desktop PC – I get flawless burns every time.

If you’ve got another burner handy – give it a shot.

Also, how do I get rid of this gay avatar? Am I serving penance as a newb?
