Depends on where you are. Otter Pops is an American brand, not sold in the UK (and many other places I should imagine). Here they are, generally, ice-pops.

Theyre called Zooper Doopers here, because that's what the brand is called.

Yeah, "Mr. Freeze" is the leading brand of ice pop in Canada, as well. They're generally referred to as "freezies" here.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

As an American, i just call them popsicles or freeze pops. I didn't even know they were called otter pops until i read the post because the box just says Fla-Vor-Ice.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

We call them fruity snow sticks, or icy flavor wands.

To me, a popsicle has to have a stick. If there’s no stick, it’s not a popsicle.

Do you type with your thumbs or your forefinger?

Forefinger 99% of the time for phone, I roughly touch-type on computer.

On mobile, two thumbs -- I've gotten alarmingly efficient. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 On computer, I type with all my fingers -- also quite efficiently.

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

This, except sub "competent enough, but far from speedy" for "alarmingly efficient". 

BB-wise, there's no question that my posts have generally gotten less elaborate since mid-2015, when I obtained a mobile. So easy for a paragraph which took 9 minutes to doggedly thumb-type, to just vanish because of a dying battery or some other mishap...blue-meanie So if I'm planning a long post (like in the "Order you listened to the albums in?" thread), I'll go to the laptop and type it up the old fashioned way.

Forefinger, right hand, on the complicated stuff. Forefinger, left hand, will be deployed when needed for 'Shift', etc.

Lol, I meant on a phone. I was tired when I typed that, sorry, should have specified.

I’m a thumb typer. On a computer, I do a very fast version of the hunt and peck that is only a wee bit slower than normal typing.

Love one another.

Exactly the same on my phone, @50yearslate, only more angry and struggling. AG can confirm how I stab away at that annoying fecking barsteward screen in frustration with my right forefinger, while fumbling with the addition of my left forefinger when a second touch on the touch screen is needed. Fecking hate phone touch screens. Fecking most pigging stupid great leap forwards for those with clumsy fingers. And I got clumsy fingers.

They should invent keyboards that you can plug into your phone.
