Microchips? ;)

What are chips, and what are fries? I thought they were the same thing, but apparently they're not.

    We fussy English folk eat chips, other people eat fries. Although chips are usually thicker whereas fries are thinner and crunchier.

    As for the lack of curry sauce, there's also no option for chip barm, which makes sense because most people outside the North West of England won't know what one is. In most of England, they're chip butties. I've heard them called chip stotties (I think) in parts of Scotland. So, I guess curry sauce doesn't deserve to be listed if as a nation we have so many different words for chip accompaniments.

    I voted for bacon double cheeseburger, but I'm beginning to think that shouldn't even be an option because the chips/fries accompany the burger, not the other way round. Looking at things that way, my vote would go to fries with a free holiday, lots of money and eternal happiness. ;-)

    Isn't this supposed to be about Perl or something?!

      I've always wondered. What to English people call chips if they call fries chips?

      I mean, chips (Lays, Ruffles, etc) are called chips because their in the shape of a chip. Fries are in the shape of shreds or sticks or planks.

        We call them crisps because they're crispy, at least by potato standards.

[Corion]: Mhhmmm - https://sod.pixlab .io/ looks really interesting for embedding with Perl (XS), but they don't have any kind of free model available and the cheapest pretrained model costs EUR 40 :-(
[Corion]: Maybe I should mail them to find out if they can provide me a "hotdog / no hotdog" model for developping the XS bindings. It would be nice to have a self-contained XS library for applying models to data. Or maybe I should look at TensorFlow, which can...
