Battery direction?

I know which end of a AA battery is positive and which is negative, but I can never remember which end goes against the side of the battery holder that has the spring, and which end should be opposite the little tapered spring thingy.

Lil' help?

ETA: bonus points if you can tell me the name of the little spring thingy so if this topic comes up in future conversations I don't have to look like a dummy.

This was one of those little things where I'd always rely on my husband, to the point where he occasionally would pipe up and supply the answer before I'd even asked it, if he saw me replacing batteries in something...
I even googled it (gawd, just tying that out makes me feel so pathetic) before starting this thread but got nowhere. Wrong search terms maybe, dunno.
