Here's the problem with language - someone came up with a name for something without thinking too hard about it, people get used to calling a thing by its dumb name, and then we're stuck with that for the rest of eternity...even though there are WAY better names for whatever that thing was.

Luckily r/AskReddit has come to the rescue and the good linguists of the internet have solved all of our semantic woes.
