Two nonsensical questions for late Friday night, concerning coplin jars. We
got into a discussion about it this week, but I forgot to get onto Histonet
Friday morning in time for the Friday trivia (though the CSI thread was

1. How do most people say "coplin"?
- Cope lynn
- Cop lynn

We have people pronouncing it differently. Training difference? Difference
in dialect? You say toe-may-toe, I say toe-mah-toe?

Which brought us to question #2:

2. Who (maybe what) is Coplin/coplin? What nationality? That might make a
difference in how the name should be pronounced. I've been looking for the
origin/inventor/whatever, and I can't find anything.

Thanks in advance.
