I can't remember if we have this thread started or not, but it seems like this is the kind of thread that could help cut down on useless threads or tangents. Or, if you just have a random thought to share and don't want it to clog the TTA arteries, post it here.

Today I was thinking: Why do we shorten "telephones" to "phones" but we don't shorten televisions to "visions" and why do we say TV but we don't say TP?

RE: Random thoughts
I was wondering earlier who was the first person to put pineapple on pizza? I know I could just Google it and I probably will but that must've been pretty weird at the time, it's not Italian at all. I bet it was an American.

If by genius you mean blasphemous fool, I agree.

And I bet it was invented in California, the freaks.

Well I really love Hawaiian pizza but the one I had earlier wasn't so good, it was frozen. I looked it up and it was a Canadian, he invented it in the 60's, pretty neat. Thumbsup

Dodgy

Why is it called a pineapple when there is neither pine nor apple in it?

Rhode Island is neither a road nor an island. Discuss.

I seriously thought Rhode Island was an island for the longest time, I don't think I realized it was actually connected to the continental united states until 2015? It could've been early this year actually. I told my fiance and was like "I'm so silly!" and he was laughing and then was like "Wait, it's not an island?" At least I wasn't the only one.
