The 10 different ways bounty paper towels are offered:
1) regular
2) big roll
3) double roll
4) triple roll
5) singles plus
6) essentials
7) doubles plus
8 ) super
9) huge
10) basic

How on earth is anyone supposed to decipher that? I understand basic, big, huge, and super what's with all the other ones  >:(
I think some of those names refer to differing quality / thickness.

More than anything, those are all about marketing.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Does anyone else get annoyed when on tapa you see the beginning words of the first post and they always start with something along the lines of "surprised that there's no thread on ..., Or "sorry if there is a thread on this already..."

Of all the "regular english" expressions, using "gate" for the English "fence" and "complicating" for "complicated" are the two that DRIVE. ME. NUTS!

And if that is what is meant by "gate" in regular english, what is the regular english word for the English noun "gate"?

It's a good thing I don't own a gun the amount of times I hear complicating instead of complicated. Though not as bad as same like instead of same as.

Bringing guns into this discussion is really complicating things.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
