I don't know.... Why do they call them apartments when they're all together?

One single garment has a sleeve for each leg and we call it a pair of pants. Another single garment has a sleeve for each arm.... Why don't we call it a pair of shirts?

A flock of geese or ducks flying overhead is fine.... Why is it a murder when crows do it?

Speaking of flocks of birds.... Why is it a swarm when insects do it?

Which of course brings us to schooling fish.... Do birds school, or do fish flock?

Sharks never swarm.... but have ants ever flocked?

A single sleeve from a pair of pants should technically be regarded as a single pant, so, logically, a single sleeve from a pair of shirts should be technically regarded as a single shirt.... ???

Now that's interesting. When it comes to mens and womens undergarments, we have a single garment with three holes in it (one for the torso and one for each leg) that we call.... A pair of underwear?
