    But it's not transferable to other people that I am aware of. I am not sure what collecting cards from other people would do.

    If you need 3 pints of blood during some surgery and you have only donated 2 pints, it's not like they are going to refuse to give you what you need.
    Can the word that has been marked in red be rhymed, of course with s, with ice.


    Thank you.

    No. For the words to rhyme, the final vowel must be the same:

    ice, lice, mice, twice, etc.

    I can't at the moment thing of any words that rhyme with 'pints'.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    Neither can I. According to this list, "pint" does not have a perfect rhyme. Adding an "s" to "pint" does not seem to change things.
