    I would have called them Jubilee Clips but a quick Google search tells me that "Jubilee" is a trade name. Guess I'll file that in the same area as calling all rotary evaporators "Buchi's"

    Anyhoo, I'll take my chemistry geekery out of here now.

    Come on now, you can't leave us hanging like this. If you don't explain why you needed to know that, I'll spend the rest of the week obsessing over it.

    Just some uni work.
    Designing a machine and I needed to show the fastener in the blueprints. I was looking for 3d models so I wouldn't have to make it myself (thus losing precious amount of time) but I couldn't find by its spanish name.

    Now I'm curious... what's the Spanish name? It's funny, us guys with English as a second language can (mostly) hold a conversation without problems, but sometimes you just stumble upon very mundane things that you just can't translate at all.
    For the record, those things are call Schlauchschellen in German (which I guess most English speakers won't even try to pronounce).

    Yes, this is quite an interesting phenomenon that I have run into many times. I suppose it's mostly due to a lack of exposure to what we in Holland would call 'huis, tuin en keuken' (home, garden and kitchen) topics - perhaps one of those children's books "My first 100 English words" would actually be helpful where simple vocabulary is concerned.

    They're called Abrazaderas in Spanish.
    I guess that with so many things around, and most of them aren't used or named frequently. It's complicated to get exposed to them, so unless you are in a English speaking environment is hard to get to know how all of them are called.

    I know the English name for a lot of production processes as I read a lot of design blogs daily, so I see them often. But these smaller things are so rarely mentioned that I had no idea of how to look for it.

    I didn't know what these were called (or for) and I am an American. O_O

    Apparently not an American with enough exposure to hoses.
    Support for my all-pepperjack-cheese food bank charity drive has been lukewarm at best.

    You use these things for flexible tubes, since the flexible tube is too flexible to stay connected, this things force the tube to connect to the connector with a lot of pression. I am a computers person, but I have seen this type of thing in (I think) engines and machinery.

    In spanish that is called a piņa. Probably americans can also call it ananas, so perhaps is a 'merica thing.

    Wouldn't it be a bit confusing to ask for some bananas and get handed an ananas?

    That's right. Over this side of the pond both terms are correct, but anana is the most common use.

    Actually even without the B the intonation is different.

    That word is a disaster! In Dutch a pine (as in the tree) is called a den and and apple is an appel. So, a pineapple always makes me think of a dennenappel - which in English is known as a conifer cone and obviously something entirely different:
