Questions of the universe.

Post by ian »

So I get that Americans call lollies candy.
Lolly = Candy.

But why do you call them Lollypops/lollipops and not Candypops?
Conversely, why do we not call Candy canes Lollycanes?

I'm going to start calling them candy pops and lolly canes just to annoy people.

It’s rare that I ever hear someone call them lollipops. Most people around here call them suckers.

Interesting.

Do they also call hard boiled candy not on sticks suckers as well?

Or do suckers exclusively have to be on sticks?

Has to be on a stick. Otherwise we usually call it what it is. So a peppermint is a peppermint, a root beer barrel is a root beer barrel, and so on. If you have an assortment of them, they are usually just called either candy or hard candy.

Well I reckon if you have a stick up your arse, you’d be a sucker whether you were made of candy or not.

If you call them lollipops, people will know what you mean but it's a little old fashioned. Mel's right that they're mostly called suckers. Boiled sweets are just called hard candy.

So with suicide booths being 3D printable these days, I looked up the cost and it's astronomical!

When will we have ones I can use by putting a quarter on a string? Because as a Millennial, this is the only way suicide will be financially viable.

I'd be inclined to spend thousands on getting my suicide pod printed if I could use it a few times, but it's a lot of money.
Do you think I could convince the designers to let me try it before I commit to such a large purchase?

And another thing!

Why is the EU so focused on forcing an inferior charging port on its citizens when they should be forcing all technology manufacturers world wide to force shooting video in landscape?

Even if morons hold their phones and cameras in a vertical position why doesn't it just record in a proper horizontal widescreen aspect ratio?

If people want a fucking portrait, they can fuck right off back to the 18th century and get one painted before they die of polio or malnutrition.

Why can science and or dog breeders not get the mind of a Jack Russell Terrier in the body of a German Shepherd?

Jack Russells are the most vicious little cunts of animals on the planet and German Shepherds have the physical attributes of perfect killing machines but some of the nicest natural tendancies and demeanors.

If I Was to get another dog I'd want it to be able to shred random Pitbulls barking at me and attacking me to shreds before I even needed to kick them away.

So where's my German Jack Russel Shepherd science?

Why are people on various social media sites so afraid of using the words 'Rope' and 'Ripe'?

For some reason they self censor these words and it makes no sense to me.

"my partner mentioned R*pe and now its over"
Maybe your partner wanted your opinion on which rope would be suitable to tie down a load for safe transit?

"You can never joke about R*pe"
No shit, using ripe as a joke is really hard, why would anyone joke about things being ripe?
