Re: Gender-neutral school uniform collection, including a 'shirtskirt', launches in Taiwan

by moonshadow » Fri Oct 30, 2020 5:07 am Stu's comment: ..... In other words, the school is showing how progressive it is and yes, you can wear the girls' uniform if you want, boys, but expect massive social ostracism and humiliation if you do. That's actually pretty clever. Calling a skirt that's ...

MORAL, US politics this week

I sent a link to a number of my family members who have been supporters of Trump and the office of the Presidency in the USA. We have within the family as diverse and strongly held opinions as we sometimes see expressed in this forum (OFF Topic) and it has caused some distress in both places. Often ...

Re: What is your favourite skirt length to wear?

I dislike the word "favorite"! I don't have a favorite color, song, sport, person, or anything else--too much to like out there -- I can never answer those stock questions sites want for Passwords or such as my favorite food, drink, or pet....grrrrrr! :evil: That nonsense aside -- my skirts fall int...

Re: New boy on the block

by Skaterboy » Thu Oct 29, 2020 7:38 am I'm based in Scotland - and you immediately think 'Great! You can wear a kilt!' But while the kilt is ok as a garment for some times, I have issues with it as the default, go-to, solution.... Besides all of which, the kilt is definitively a 'male' garment, so...

Re: Your Personal Biosphere

It was an interesting video. Aside from the rather dramatic cost that I doubt can be recovered -- I wonder how much time they spend washing all that dang glass? Now, where are the lines about people who live in glass houses?

Re: Loss of Daylight Savings Time......

All the replies from various points on the globe with their compounding problems should be enough to put this silly artifact to bed once and for all; but alas we always have a few that are too bright and know better! Aside from our "trained" sun that I bragged upon earlier; I spent a couple of years...

Hey fellows -- you just have not trained your sun properly: Ours is disciplined -- up about 6 am and down about 6 pm -- year round; now if we could just train them dang clouds!

Re: New boy on the block

Welcome aboard, the more the merrier they say -- sometimes it works here on SC, sometimes we manage a few choice words but mostly you can pick and choose; glean quite a bit of useful stuff, and raise pretty much any topic and expect fairly calm and reasoned replies. I, too, an "new" on the site and ...

Re: Are older cars safer?

by partlyscot » Sat Oct 24, 2020 6:52 pm The first time I drove with friends in the car, they all were dismissive of the seat belts. (there was no law mandating their use at the time) It was my mother's car, and had very flat, vinyl bench seats. It wasn't very fast, but would corner quite well. We ...
