So here in my office we're having a bit of a disagreement between what one calls the pins which you hang things up on boards with. I would call them push pins or thumb tacks (depending on what they looked like) while over here they would call them drawing pins . . . what is up with that? They're not used for drawing! Thumbtack makes sense as you push them in with you thumb, pushpins you push in again making sense, drawing pins don't draw so that doesn't make any sense at all, maybe b/c you can hold up drawings with them, but again not nearly as good as pushpin or thumb tack!
