I understand (in both US and UK terms) everything except the torch part.
We call them flashlights here in the US.
oh geez......that's totally NOT what anyone was thinking, I bet.
And there you have given the perfect example. Well done.
Funny, my family calls them torches. At least my mother does, not sure about my dad since he isn't from the UK.
*...and yes, I totally wasn't thinking about flashlights. lol.
I'm even confused by this. Must be a Wisconsin thing.
Doesn't anyone use a lantern anymore?
Oh hey dere! Could ya get me da flashlight outta da trunk err no?
Too bad Tatty is on "holiday" (we call it vacation). He would have a great time with this thread.
Speak for yourself.
Really? Because I don't find torches in my boots very often.
I believe Kreij was explaining the UK version of things... So the point has been missed by you and Dave.
Ya, gimmeasec, brats on.
Cristian_25H from Romania ? Nice !
LOL Man I was trying to make sense of the thing till you spot on did it! Thank you
Man a flashlight! A fucking Flashlight is what you were talking about! Torch? WTF does some one need a torch? Now flashlight that makes perfect sense to me.
LOL. Holiday? Really? That's Queer.
Once upon a time, in a very far away place, there wasn't electricity, and they used this thing, called fire, to light their way. They held this thing, this fire, on a stick, and hence the torch was born.
I love technology.
I like when I need to use google translate, babelfish, thesaurus or urban dictionary to get colloquialism I'm not familiar with. That means I'll learn something new. You see, your native language does not have same international status as my native language.
Torch makes more sense to me.
Do flashlights flash? I don't want a flashlight flashing when I'm trying to get around in the dark.
LOL I know I am stoned I just didn't get it man. Now why is it they call them torches then? When in fact they are NOT FIRE! STUPID!
no uk based staff , little suprised tbh
Tatty_One is from the UK.
Actually Yes they did this is where the name came from.
Torch LOL That is just dumb. Torch! AHHHHAAAAAAHHHHAAAAA!!!
Because they used torches for light before there were flashlights?
Tatty is from the UK. There have been others.
I know this! But a torch is FIRE on A FUCKING STICK! A flashlight is and always has been a battery operated light source.
Take it easy with the language please.
ON a stick.
