Re: Boys skirting the issue

The North has been hot too. I live west of Glasgow on the coast, my house faces North and is next to a cliff, it is maybe 170 years old and the walls are stone, getting on for 2 feet thick (for you metric kids- 2 feet thick but spoken slowly and loudly). Yesterday evening I took my infernal red the...

Re: Have a Laugh

Dust, the Flake is what makes it the "99" and is iconic. The only point of contention is when you eat the chocolate - as you go on, extract it and eat it at the start or at the end. Opinions may vary. An ice cream cone without a flake - it's like fish 'n' chips without salt 'n' vinegar, a hot dog w...

Re: Have a Laugh

Can you get to flavors other than vanilla? Chocolate soft ice cream is a thing, as is a mix of the two, often called "twist." Occasionally you find other flavors like strawberry...

Re: Have a Laugh

Tom, Mr Whippy travelling around in his ice cream van ( whatever happened to him, I wonder? ) made these popular. There must be someone in York that does extruded ice cream but if there is I don't know where. We call it "soft ice cream" here in the US. And yes, you can get it here. Maybe not with t...

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

... one of the girls whom I have never met asked me the underwear question, and the rest of their group put her in her place very quickly. My response was something along the lines of whether that question would be considered appropriate (and funny) if I asked her the exact same question (she was w...

Re: That rare male compliment

... I've seen him at the store a couple times and the first time he asked if I'd make skirts on commission . I gave some kind of non-committal response. Then I saw him in the store last week and he asked again. This time I said that I didn't think I would, but that I'd be willing to explain how I d...

Re: Mother defends son shamed over wearing girl’s swimsuit

Apparently some are claiming he was forced to wear it as some sort of hazing, but the mom says he chose to wear it, and will also wear dresses to school. The response to a boy potentially getting hazed? The governing body in Australia is creating an all-female panel to investigate the claims and rep...

Re: Mens Suiting Is Drab

I think you're right. It's going to be tough to make it work. Maybe I'll have to have two suits made with a common vest but separate jackets and bottoms. Grrr, more material and more labour. I've seen some pics online of what looked to be standard men's jackets with ankle length a-line skirts that ...

Re: New York Times article

... for the majority of men - my guess is they don't want to be mistaken for women If men and women (and anyone else) were all treated equally, it wouldn't matter.  The problems are coming from categorising people and then treating them differently according to the category they appear to fit.

Re: woke

I feel like the pc police of yesteryear are the woke police of today - with the exception that people are actually losing their jobs over stuff (not to be dismissive of some egregious conduct which merits dismissal) that was said years ago and no longer reflects on the person at 16 who uttered/wrot...

The real amazing thing is in the title, the idea that there is a "Great Menswear Skirt Movement" being mentioned so openly and seriously... Anyway, another article on GQ from the same author titled "The Rise of the Sober, Tasteful Menswear Skirt": https://www.gq.com/story/sober-menswear-skirts What ...

Re: Mens Suiting Is Drab

I'll also say - I don't think it matters what women wear, they will always look better/put together than men, at least to me. Then again, we are our worst judge: The truth is that from the get go. boys are brainwashed into believing this as inalienable fact. From Mum and other females in the family...

Re: Mens Suiting Is Drab

The thirds thing works as floor to knees, knees to natural waist, natural waist to top of shoulders. This is the division on a "traditional" kilt outfit. A men's suit jacket is roughly half the length from shoulder top/base of neck to the floor, dividing the body in half. A shorter jacket will usual...

Re: East coast fuel shortage

There are other ways of producing hydrogen. There was a design put together on paper (never built) for a nuclear power plant that would use chemical reactions and the heat from the reactor to produce hydrogen directly without using electrolysis. I believe it was designed at Westinghouse...

A kilty looking garment for someone.
