My left ear is really itchy. And I love the feeling of sticking a cotton bud in there really deep and tickling my brain.

Why do Americans call cotton buds Q-tips? Isn't that a brand name? Like saying Band-Aid instead of plaster... what's up with that?

I think we would call a Band-Air a bandage before we would ever call it a plaster. I also use the brand name Kleenex a lot instead of tissue.

why do BPs call me Bugmeister when that's clearly a variation of the Germanic language ?

Do they hate their own culture?

Why do some people post on messageboards using fake profiles and pretend aliases? Do they really hate themselves that much?

I guess we'll never know!
