Don't ask me why? but, everyone in my family calls it a converter. and yes, I know what an actual Converter is.

:-O

It's a "doo-da", for crying out loud.

The "remote control"? Hey fellas, the "remote control"! Well, ooh la di da, Mr. English/American/whatever the hell you happen to be Man.

I suppose "the thing" is acceptable. "Clicker" isn't.

My family is obsessed with remotes... we have this one giant one that runs the stereo, cd player, tv, etc. etc. then we have seperate ones for each of those... I swear we have at least 10 remotes in the whole house easily. But, to answer the question, I use the word "remote". My grandfather calls it "the clicker," and sometimes he says "the gun".

He probably calls it 'the gun' because when TV remote controls were introduced they were just flashlights in the shape of a 'ray gun.' To change the channel or volume you pointed the 'gun' at a light sensative panel on one of the four corners of the TV. Each corner had a different function(channel up, channel down, etc.)

We have 2 remotes , so if I'm watching tv with someone else there can be fights , and we each change the channels. The simple was to remedy this is to hold on the tv button sending a constant signal to the television , any other remotes can't do anything. Or you could just throw a pillow infront of the tv blocking the signal destination point. Just hope the other guy is lazy. But if it gets really bad you can always fight to the death to get both remotes.

at our house we call it the "gizzy"...which is short for "gizzadeech"

so...whenever anyone says "where's the gizzy?" we all know what that means...but guests get a little confused.

Cows are among one of the most versatile domesticated animals around today. They are also quite peaceful and contented with their simple lives, with few concerns about the world around them. Maybe we should all be more like cows?

I've never really snapped in a post before , but seriously, all the people who say " clickers " are fucking pathetic. Sure, it clicks, but that IS NOT WHAT IT WAS MADE FOR. IF IT WAS INVENTED FOR THE SOUL PURPOSE OF CLICKING THEN IT WOULD BE OKAY TO CALL IT A FUCKING ' CLICKER'. Remote.

i agree, however....no need to go crazy at these poor fools. they obviously inherited this defect from their parents.
