I often find myself making a comment pointing out the quite obvious fact that two particular dissimilar entities/institutions are not, in fact, one and the same. Why would I need to do this so often?

I assume that you have to do it to correct a mistake that is being made?

Are you making this comment verbally? in writing?
Are you editing something when you make it? correcting something (like a term paper or essay?)

Similar names?
Common mis-usage of a word? a title? a name?
Mis-spelling? Common or easy-to-make typo?
Common misunderstanding or mis-perception of what one or both entities do/are/make?

Are the entities:
h? a? m?
places?
objects?
clubs/ organizations?

Does your need for re-emphasizing the dissimilarity arise from trying to convince yourself? or someone else?

Is there something similar your observe between them that is not obvious?

Is what the organisations actually do relevant?
Is one an organisation and the other something else?
Is charity vs Governmental relevant? (I am in St John Ambulance and we are constantly having to explain that we are NOT part of the National Health Service!)

Is what the organisations actually do relevant? no, but may be helpful in solving
Is one an organisation and the other something else? they are both yopeishly organizations. it depends on your definition of organization
Is charity vs Governmental relevant?no (I am in St John Ambulance and we are constantly having to explain that we are NOT part of the National Health Service!)these two entities are even more dissimilar.

do you work for one of the entities?
Are you in some way closely associated with one of them?
With both?
Do you have to do this explaining on the phone? In person?
Are the entities commonly known by a set of initials? An acronym? their full name?

I know this is vague, but are they both yopeishly organisations in the same way? Will finding out what kind of thing they are help?

Trusts? Charities? NGO's? academic? research teams? sports teams? Governing Bodies? Local groups (drama group or historical circle or writer's circle for example?)

Is the similar aspect one that would seem obvious to an outsider but which dissolves rapidly on further inspection? An aspect that contradicts the even more obvious fact that they are different?

Good to be here, Tim!

So we have 2 yopeish organisations - 1 academic, 1 private business...

You said yope to something similar that is not obvious. Is it obvious that they are different? Is it obvious that they have a similar element?
or is it just that they appear to have a similar element?

Science involved? Business? Economics? Social Studies? Literature? History? Languages? (consider list posted of those if necessary...) mathematios? students? teachers?

Let me clarify that no one actually mistakes UGA with the other entity. There just happens to be an aspect of UGA that is similar in a certain way to an aspect of the other.

Is your "correction" in response to a particular observation e. g. "This isn't Hooters, you know.", like that? In other words, they aren't comparing the two, you're using the chain's reputation to contrast with what they're saying? Something like? Not even close? Oh well.

Uh, just in case, there aren't any penguins in this one, right? Maybe one?

I was about to stand back, having just done that... tis the arch where the historic Athens meets the campus... Love the bit about freshmen becoming sterile if they walk through it as well as not graduating... does anyone actually fall for that?

and it does resemble just a wee bit... http://www.uga.edu/profile/arch.html

Archway to excellence? Arch foundation?no

I was about to stand back, having just done that... tis the arch where the historic Athens meets the campus...yes, it's among the most prominent symbols of UGA Love the bit about freshmen becoming sterile if they walk through it as well as not graduating... does anyone actually fall for that?
sterile? I can't say I've ever heard that before, and seeing as I am a UGA alum and employee, that's surprising. The not graduating bit, however, is as much tradition as it is superstition, and 99% of students wait until graduation day to walk through the arch.

From Wikipedia:

There are multiple urban legends about walking through the arch: one has it that if you walk through the arch as an underclassman, you will never graduate from UGA.[17] Another legend claims that should you walk through the arch as a freshman, you will become sterile (as told in some freshman orientation tours).

just checking.. the arch on capmus is relevant, correct?
you answered yesish to relevant text.. would the relevant text be referring to UGA? McDonalds? both? niether?
is the text a sign? billboard? instructions? flyer? poster? brochure? calendar? grafitti?
would someone looking for the services of either entity be in the group that makes a mistake?
would someone already using he services of either entity be in the group that makes a mistake?

Mcdonalds is not UGA! true, but not quite what I say.

Do they assume that Macdonalds based their design on UGA's arch? NO. No one believes that Macdonalds has anything to do with UGA

just checking.. the arch on capmus is relevant, correct? indeed
you answered yesish to relevant text.. would the relevant text be referring to UGA? McDonalds? both? niether? I was referring to the fact that the Macdonalds arches are meant to be an "M"
is the text a sign? billboard? instructions? flyer? poster? brochure? calendar? grafitti? see above
would someone looking for the services of either entity be in the group that makes a mistake?of UGA, yes. Of Macdonalds, no
would someone already using he services of either entity be in the group that makes a mistake? of UGA, yes. Of Macdonalds, no

*******************SPOILER****************

I frequently hear people on campus referring to the arch as "the arches." The first few times I just ignored it, but it starts to drive me absolutely crazy! Especially when the people saying it are students who should know better. My common response is "This is UGA, not McDonalds" or sometimes "McDonalds has arches, UGA has the Arch."
