“What will you do with your one precious, wild life?”
― Mary Oliver
In thinking about this question, I think part of the definition is based on what is in the container (or what the container is intended to hold). Something that holds a liquid, that is meant to be poured from, is a bottle. Something that holds a solid, semi-solid that should be scooped or spooned out is more likely to be a jar. Of course, you could put a liquid in a jar. ;-) But my kids have sports water "bottles" that are shaped more like tall jars, except that they have a spout on top of the lid. I think if the primary way of extracting the contents is "pouring" then it's a bottle.Just from looking at the pictures, I'd go with calling those with the narrowest necks bottles: A2, A3, B2, B3, C4, D2, D3, D4, E2, E3, FC2 and E4 are marginal. I'd have to see them in real life to decide. ;-)
Gut feeling...Bottles: A3-perfume D2 or D3-ketchupE2-bike bottleE3-ThermosJars: A1-cream A4-mustard B4C1-Thermos cupD1-picklesE1-olivesE4Beaker: FVase: B1 B2Very subjective.
Yup, as I look at the pictures over and over again, some of them are sometimes bottles and sometimes jars to me. Of course, some stay nicely put in their camps and don't cause any trouble. Hmmm.Ms. Cookie
Mostly, I think this is a trick question. Here are my accusations against the outliersA3 holds a genie, but I guess "genie bottle" is better than "genie jar", at any rate its flask-likeF is the top of a lava lampC4 is the lid and stick off a paste container. E3 is the John Hancock building (or some other skyscraperand B2 is a toilet seatI think the jar/bottle thing could all be decided by whether or not you would naturally place your mouth around the rim or not. (I know you can stretch your lips around a glass/jar, but what do people do naturally). A nice consequence of this theory is that, to the more loquacious among us, everything is a bottle.
I just added your blog to the Blogspot directory under the "Educational" section.Thanks
Those are really annoying! I don't see any of the A's as bottles, nor any of the 1's. The rest are mixed, with some tough calls.Nice.
