Have you ever woundered why people call something a name that has no relevance to what it is. Such as: Still Water - Why? Its not gonna run around is it.Sparkling Water - Why? It does not shine it fizzes.
Oh my friend this thread has made me smile! Still water, lololo I have never scene water that has actually stood still, there is always some type of movement.lolololo
The creeks around here are running like crazy after yesterday's rain.Sparkling water catches and reflects light in the tiny bubbles-- I guess it depends on if you drink in the dark.
good point Rochelle.
The fizzing motion looks sparkly. Therefore, sparkling water. It's also called fizzy water, as a side note."Still water," as opposed to "running water." Yes, it is going to run around as a matter of fact. What're some other ones? Because if you can find some that really have no relevance, those can be funny. Or confusing.

Some things make sense when they're relative. Shrug.Maybe I'm just talking about differences in lingo that I've heard.
I have not idea what we're talking about!
Certain words just don't o together, for example, what exactly is:extra money
oxymoron sums it up...Sum it up. Isn't that what a "sum" is? You add it all together????
add it together, take it apart, just tell me if you have any of that "extra money" or know where little bighorn is. I have a huge midget next door, and he owns the worlds smallest giant.
