If anyone knows about vent...you will understand what im talking about here
So, im talking in vent asking if anyone knows about craigs list because I was looking at a sea-doo on it bla bla bla. So someone in ventrilo doesnt know what a sea-doo was so I try to explain it to them, and yet they are very lost in confusion. Someone chimes in saying its a Jetski, so I say, no its not, thats not what a sea-doo is. He goes on telling me that im a fucking idiot thinking that a jetski is not a all around term for PWC's. /sigh

Its kind of like how everybody calls Pepsi "coke", well atleast most do. Pepsi has tried going to court over it, but with no luck.
People liken all PWC's to a "jetski", I do it too.

I gotta admitt it, I also refer to them as jetskis even though I am fully aware of the differences. Its like calling a tissue "kleenex".

Its pretty much when a new product or the biggest named product comes out, you name it after that even though more products come out later with different names but you call it by the original name it started with...like the example the the tissue thing or the soda thing
My 2 cents

I call my RXP and my XP a jetski when I refer to them. Everyone knows what a jetski is.

Hmmmm. I have a jetski in my driveway. (Seadoo RXT) When I hook it up to my truck I am going Jetskiing). When my insurance agent added the RXT to my insurance he added a jetski rider.
Seadoo, yamaha Kawasaki = pwc or jetski
bubbly brown liquid coke but it could be a pepsi.
I ask friends if they want a beer but it could be an ale or a lager
When I moved to Washingto state they called a bag a sack. Sack to me is bed.
when I was a tool owner in a manufacturing plant I got a page tht the tote was not working. At 2am I was like what???? The person related the mechanism called a carrier as a tote. The carrier was a load assembly for the product.
is it a pick up of truck?
