Re: As nature intended or a smooth operator?

Both. I have almost hairless legs and chest, which is apparently what Nature intended in my case.

Re: Womens underwear

I've had strangers (usually women) ask me what I wear under my skirt - so I look down and say "Boots".

That's the sound of a lot of people mentally back-tracking and trying to work out how to justify their previous stance.  Don't disturb it, the reaction could be violent.

Re: What a Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About the 2020 Election

Here's another quote -- and this one may give you hope for the future.  It was copied from one of the BBC Yearbooks from a long time ago and has only been slightly edited to disguise the person it was originally written about. His theory of propaganda, as expounded with such a wealth of detail and s...

Re: "What was up with those giant Victorian skirts?"

... I couldn't imagine going down to the pub in one! I was friends wih a theatrical costumier who 'borrowed' from stock, and wore to a dance festival, a dress that had been made for the back row of the chorus of Carmen.  It was made of massively heavy material with a chain-weighted hem and was over...

Re: What a Stalin Quote About Rigging Elections Reveals About the 2020 Election

...My views have changed dramatically since yesterday. I sincerely hope that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris can run a united and peaceful nation. I don't agree with them politically but I am now glad they were elected since it is clear that Donald Trump has shown that he is not up to the job of honori...

Re: A woman

However much William Golding may have understood about human nature, he didn't know much about everyday physics; part of the plot of Lord of the Flies relies on using a diverging lens to focus the sun's rays.  When I got to that bit, I threw the book down and dismissed it as a load of nonsense. The ...

Re: Happy 40th Birthday Moonshadow!!

I do have a couple of decent tape decks, one of them I'm trying to find replacement pinch rollers for, which is proving interesting.. The Ferrograph Series 7 pinch roller can be salvaged by removing the old rubber tyre and slipping three Viton 'O' rings over the metal core.  I don't know if a simil...

Re: Happy 40th Birthday Moonshadow!!

Many Happy Returns of a few days ago, glad it went well. Everyone seems to be posting their favourite version of the 1812 Overture, so I will add my own to the list, recorded by George Cathie's Orchestra in 1928.  It is the most enthusiastic, uninhibited and jolly version I have ever come across -- ...

Re: Does wearing a mask make it easier?

To put it in context, refusing to wear a mask in public is comparable to refusing to wear a condom when you may have AIDS or refusing to go into isolation if you are showing the symptoms of a notifiable contagious disease; it isn't a clothing choice or a sign of political allegiance.  It would be a ...

Re: Does wearing a mask make it easier?

Everyone here at the Cafe has a right to do what ever they want and wear what they want ... We have never before had to face the situation where one person's choice of 'clothing' could result in another persons death.  Perhaps face masks should not be regarded as clothing in the usual sense of the ...

Re: Does wearing a mask make it easier?

There seems to be a misunderstanding about the reason for wearing a mask: it is not to protect you, it is to protect the people you meet.  It does not filter out the virus particles, it slows down the air currents that would carry them to other people. Faldaguy expressed it mildly and politely, I wo...

Re: Very O/T - A Query About Home Heating

Carbon fibre will burn and so will epoxy (with a lot of stink) so some types of blade might possibly be useable as fuel.
