    The correct and PROPER term is "picking nits" as in, the old english terminology for picking small insignificant fights, because of course the word nit is derived from greek word niet that means small quibble. Picking nits is not to be confused with picking noses.

    Are you talking about an electric motor? or an internal combustion engine? many people call the engine in their car a motor. a motor uses supplied energy, a engine makes energy. ;)

    Wow.

    Six pages arguing what? Terminology? Semantics?

    This is going nowhere and fast.

    Still wondering is it a creek or a crick? A pop, or a soda, or a coke? Is it a faucet or a spicket?

    I think the mods are just letting it play out because it is harmless and not hurting anyone. Sometimes we need threads like this when every other one is doom and gloom about the future.

    Creek, pop, faucet. I win!

    Agreed. And surprisingly there's quite a few educational bits contained in this thread for those willing to dig.

    BTW its a muzzle BRAKE! A muzzle break would be letting it go to lunch.

    UH-OH! I hope that magazine picture wasn't shown in D.C. You could be charged, unless you're part of the elite, or a reporter!

    Picking nits? I thought that is the practice of people trying to rid themselves of head lice?

    How may I have been so wrong?

    You must have read that on the internet.

    Remember, you can't automatically accept everything you read online as fact.

    Also, 83% of statistics are entirely made up. True story.
