Spacebar: There's more connections to the keyboard, meant so that you can hit almost any part of it, and still get a space, and that causes the extra noise.
M&Ms: It's a marketing technique, aimed at children.
W: Latin Origins of the name, where U was written as V, and the V sound was made by writing a W.
Pants: The arbitrary nature of the English language is to be blamed here. Because each pant leg is seperate, then sewed together, it's referred to as a pair. Originally a compass (the ones for drawing, not navigation) was referred to as a pair of compasses, some with a bellows and a nutcracker.
Grading: E was skipped to avoid confusion. Some older scales went as such:
E = Excellent
VG = Very Good
G = Good
S = Satisfactory
U = Unsatisfactory
Mirrors: People are vain. They want to try to make sure they don't look like they were just puking/crying/whatever they were doing, so it's instinctual to look and make some attempt to fix it.
Chicken Fingers: Because they're long and thin like fingers. It's just another marketing gimmick that entertains children.
Heads Up: This isn't said for dodging, this is said to make sure they're paying attention. You wouldn't want someone you're playing catch with to duck under the ball.
Stretching: Habit, mostly. I myself don't moan while stretching. Though it can be sourced in stretching causing compression to the chest, and air being forced out.
Cartoon Clothing: Animation shortcut. Sometimes characters change clothes every episode, and no one really notices, so it's easier to have a set outfit.
Macaroni Box: They can't perforate too much, or it falls apart on it's own, so it takes the right amount of force at the right angle/place to open that. I can open them just fine.
Desks: Size of desks in my school district never changed that much. A lot of it is perspective, though. And in Elementary school, children are messy and unorganized, and need the space.

heads up is so you lift your head up so your hard hat covers more of your body, that way you dont get hit on neck
User avatar #61 to #10 - lfunnymanl ONLINE (05/13/2013) [-]
the w thing in spanish it can be said double v or double u
User avatar #11 to #10 - oniryuuko (05/12/2013) [-]
Remotes: Mostly habits again. In a lot of applications, more force may cause something to work, like a bolt that's rusted in, so people instinctively try it.

Dentists: Most of them don't expect you to respond. It's meant to calm you down a bit, because a lot of people find silence unnerving. In my dentist's office, they have a TV on while working, to create that noise.

Alphabet: It's just a method of keeping it to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Otherwise, it'd go for too long.

Pizza Box: Easier to stack and handle. Circular pizza is traditional because of hand tossed pizza, and squares would be too uneven. The slice is triangular, because that's the most efficient way to cut a circle.

Star: The lines are just a shortcut, if you imagine them there, you can draw it with only the outer edges, and get very close to what you'd get with the shortcut.

6 Flags: The dancing old man is quirky and funny to children, but at the same time shows that even someone as old as him can enjoy amusement parks. They're just trying to attract all age groups as customers, because it's better money.

These problems mostly refers to Americans...

Box is square
Pizza is circle
Slice is triangle

Because you learned the alphabet song to the melody of twinkle twinkle little star and you have to go faster at the LMNOP part to make the letters fit the melody.
#74 - CaptainKill (05/13/2013) [-]
In my school, we have E instead of F.

Are you seriously calling that pizza a pie?
User avatar #7 to #2 - the fuzzball (05/12/2013) [-]
a lot of people call it pie.

The space bar is bigger, and therefore contacts the keyboard in more places.
"Fun size" is used to mean that it is a snack, and not a whole bag of 20+ servings.
In the latin alphabet U looked more like a V.
"Pair of pants" likely comes from older times when pant legs weren't necessarily attached. Similar to how sleeves weren't always attached. One stuck, the other didn't.
Grading system changed, E used to be good, to avoid confusion they left it out when they changed it.
To make sure you didn't get anything on your face, obviously.
They resemble fingers. Or did you think that food names were entirely literal?
It's an idiom, and therefore not literal.
Why do people ever moan? Because something feels good.
To save money animating them. Before computers you had to draw each character by hand, and it was easier to have a single reference than to design each character's clothes different every episode. This is also why older cartoons tend to re-use locations and sometimes entire sequences.
You're just bad at it.
Colleges exist to make money. They're trying to cram as many of you in a room as possible. Elementary school, on the other hand strives for a low teacher:student ratio. The in-between is an artifact of this disparity.
Sometimes it's not the batteries, without a multimeter you don't necessarily know, so you press down harder (the solution for another common remote control problem: worn out buttons).
To get your mind off of the pointy metal bits in your mouth, his hands (also in your mouth) and most importantly your tongue. Also in some small part for his own sanity. Would you want to work without talking to people?
Because that's the rhythm of "twinkle twinkle little star". "LMNOP" doesn't fit into the corresponding part of the song.
Have you ever tried making a circular box that folds easily for storage?
Centripetal acceleration of the pizza as it is tossed determines its shape. I defy you to toss a pizza into a square.

The fudge is in the bathroom, freshly out of the oven.
User avatar #14 to #12 - wheresthefudge (05/12/2013) [-]
Continuing:
Technically, you can slice it however you want. Straight lines through the center is the easiest way to divide it evenly without measuring equipment. This leads to a shape similar to a triangle.
That 72 degree angle is hard to judge without the lines. Also, convex shapes (like the pentagon made in the middle) are easier to judge by eye than concave shapes.
Presumably, someone found his dance funny at one point. It became an advertising campaign.

and also, the pizza box is square because it's the most practical way to deliver pizzas. if the box were round but bigger than the pizza, the pizza might get spoiled because of the shaking and moving around freely inside the box while it's being delivered. if the box has the same size as the pizza, it would be uncomfortable grabbing the slices.

...WHY!?...Enough said
User avatar #21 to #20 - Nitsuin (05/13/2013) [-]
See, that was quick and easily explained. I like that.
#68 - carelessinteractin (05/13/2013) [-]
See now, I was thinking about that too. Why do they call it double-u if its shaped like a V? Well because in lower case form they are U's.
#55 - anon (05/13/2013) [-]
In England grades go A*,A,B,C,D,E,F,G,U (U being ungradeable)
User avatar #53 - ninetwenty (05/13/2013) [-]
> In Norway, we say double- V. Would weird to say double- U
> No, people doesn't always moan while they stretch.
> Pressing harder on the remotes buttons when you have "low" batteries, it gets a better conection and you give it some time to react whit the little electricity that is left.

Come on, just look at this guy.

In Norway "W" is Double v. That's because we are smarter then the average USAmerican.
#35 to #9 - sockswithsandals (05/13/2013) [-]
Same in Sweden.
User avatar #22 - Lambda (05/13/2013) [-]
1. Because it is a larger key.
2. NOTHING. It's a marketing thing.
3. The rounded U is a bastardation of the latin U, which was a V.
4. Each leg is a "pant". Together they are pants.
5. "E" can stand for "Excellent".
6. Because we're obsessed with appearances.
7. They look line fingers.
8. It means, generally, "be alert". It's come to mean "duck".
9. Habit.
10. To make characters identifiable and iconic.

And I can't be arsed to explain the rest. Except the last one. It's because that old man is AWESOME.

E id for effort.

How fun it is brings old people, in their decrepit state, back to the there happy and silly state they were once in.
User avatar #82 - dapape (05/13/2013) [-]
A lot of these require little to no thought to even explain.
User avatar #85 to #82 - atnyne (05/13/2013) [-]
I agree, maybe OP is simply an idiot.
#71 - dovakiinsteve (05/13/2013) [-]
For Pizzas, the boxes are square because they are easier to store and shift in groups. They're are round because the dough is span in the air, making it round. It's cut into triangles because that makes it symmetric, and every piece roughly the same amount of pizza.
User avatar #63 - varrlegrimscythe (05/13/2013) [-]
The last one is simple; You're never too old to have fun.
#54 - restfullwicked (05/13/2013) [-]
in france it is pronounced doubla v or something similar. Its because the saxon letters probably had a V letter that made the U sound. like how the word Ye on a sign is pronounced as THE because the letter Y comes from a saxon letter called the thorn that makes a th sound.
#58 to #54 - willcutting (05/13/2013) [-]
Yep in french it's double-v, I think it comes from Latin for you English speakers the letters U where wrote as V and so double U.
User avatar #64 to #58 - sausageparty (05/13/2013) [-]
In Danish it's double-v as well. I actually always wondered why it was called double-u in English
#59 to #58 - restfullwicked (05/13/2013) [-]
could be. but remember, the english language isnt based on latin. its based on something similar to german
User avatar #60 to #59 - willcutting (05/13/2013) [-]
Yep but remember the Roman invaded England for a while creating cities as Bath and York, also the roads and the public bath. I think it can come from here, I mean that's the only possibility I think credible.
User avatar #49 - shemaledong (05/13/2013) [-]
Pant just describes one of the legs of your pants.
User avatar #77 - buttlord (05/13/2013) [-]

#80 to #77 - deathbyrevenge (05/13/2013) [-]
Pizza Pie
User avatar #81 to #80 - buttlord (05/13/2013) [-]
i always thought pizza pie was like Sheppards pie or something with pizza in it.
User avatar #84 to #81 - Zeigh (05/13/2013) [-]
It's like soda pop, some people call it soda, some call it pop. It's still the same thing.
User avatar #90 to #84 - buttlord (05/13/2013) [-]
oooooooh
User avatar #91 to #90 - Zeigh (05/13/2013) [-]
From what I can tell it seems people from the east coast are the ones who mostly call it pie rather than just pizza.
User avatar #92 to #91 - buttlord (05/13/2013) [-]
i live in britain if that means anything
User avatar #93 to #92 - Zeigh (05/13/2013) [-]
East coast of the U.S. that includes states such as new york, rhode island, new jersey, maryland etc.
User avatar #94 to #93 - buttlord (05/13/2013) [-]
ah. i get you now.
