I should note that the way the "news" story that went viral last week over this screen showing a sunset was overblown and greatly misrepresented. That said, it makes for a really entrancing image.

By the by, feel free to follow the Question Duck tumblr! It's at questionduck.tumblr.com

I have no idea if there's gonna be unique content there but it should be another great place to get Question Duck goodness!

They're generally called 'toasting muffins' in my experience. If somebody said 'muffin' I'd assume the sweet kind but it'd be pretty easy to tell from context (like if somebody's offering you muffins for breakfast).

Thank goodness for regular Question Duck Updates!

i thought they were called crumpets.
a while ago i heard about an art instillation in greenland or something that was just this big light in a really huge room, so all these sunlight-starved people would go in and just hang around, like they were sunbathing. is this a similar thing?

How does one legally get ahold of a fancy 24 megapixel camera for free?

Answer that one.

I'm English, I've lived here my whole life... I've always called them English muffins too.

There ARE muffins, which are the sweet things, and there ARE crumpets too, but crumpets are something else entirely.

Sorry... just had to set the record straight... ;n_n

In most places here in england we just call them both muffins. It's similar to jelly and jam, we just call them both jam here. The reasons are different, though. We call jelly and jam the same thing mainly because they're so alike so nobody cares. We call muffins and english muffins just muffins because it's not hard to tell them apart anyways, since you almost always eat something with an english muffin (like butter/jam, or a more interesting filling like sausage meat) but you never eat muffins like that, they always come on their own.

Also, crumpets are something completely different.

What is that scene? It amuses me to think it's in an enclosed colony on another planet, and the sunset is visible through a huge window. I can see it's not that, but it's a fun thought.
