You should hear my wife speak. wink One would think after 37 years of marriage I would almost what she's thinking, let alone what she's trying to tell me. ohwell She absolutely hates it when I correct her.

No offense intended, but I've been calling them drill bits since the mid 1960's. Although, I have seen it in publications both ways.

They will always be "Drill Bits" in my lifetime. The hand held driver is also called a "Drill Motor".
Stationary drill drivers are called "Drill Presses".
Different areas of the country and overseas have different names for different metal working tools.

I'm sure J. Lucas knows what a BAR is.
If you get a couple Nuke workers together, you will not understand a word of what they talk about.

Actually, the M-14 was spawned by the M-1 Garand. John Moses Browning designed the BAR either during, or shortly after WW I. Clyde Barrows liked the BAR with its powerful .30-06 cartridge, and he routinely stole them from National Guard armories. He would cut the stock and the barrel down to make it less awkward to fire from a car during high speed chases. That cut-down rig must have been a handful to shoot- - - -fully automatic fire at the rate of 3 rounds per second with no semi-auto option! The BAR was the designated "Squad Automatic Weapon" during WW II.

Well, I guess BAR means a lot of different things depending on what you are interested in.
Firepower, social places or machinist terms.

Let. Me translate Tim’s comment.

“I’ve never been in a bar I didn’t like, they are just places with friends I haven’t met yet!”

After spending some time with Tim, you will know he speaks the truth. We hit our share of watering holes on our road trip a couple years ago.

I learned today there are people in this country (and I don't think you need any help figuring out who they are) who want to change "breast feeding" to "chest feeding." If any of you guys want to unbutton your shirt and feed a baby, please let me know. I don't own a video camera, but I'd buy one to record something like that.

I think some of these people ought to just be planted and watered.
