“I think it's great fun to have women stripping and on the very rare occasions when i saw women in states of undress when I was around 11,12,13 I found it fascinating but not psychologically-damaging (although some might disagree). Airport security gates, with their increasing levels of security, tend to impel people to behave a little more bizarrely than might be the case at, say, a neighbour's nude hot-tubbing party for neighbourhood couples.

PS: this sentence is a classic example of disagreement of tense, something kids usually manage to get over a little before the 11-plus

"Hadfield-Hyde, 51, then went the whole hog, as an onlooker rushes to cover then up."

(should be 'rusheD', bit I know you all spotted that)

“I'm glad they had a spoiler. Otherwise I would have seen a penis - a flaccid penis to be sure - a penis way in the background, occupying about 1% of the screen, if that - to be sure - a penis displayed for but a moment - to be sure - but a penis nonetheless - followed by a cartoon of the lower bowel with its purple curlicues and mysterious twists and turns - I breathed a sigh of relief at not having to view the almost invisible penis which appeared for a few seconds on a tiny portion of the screen”

“Does Syria really feel that the phrase "by all means" will strike terror into the US. All it had is a range of Soviet/Russian air defence weapons which are known quantities. It's air force is unlikely to cause any particular wringing of hands and it has no substantive navy. Its ground forces are beleaguered in the main - meaning its "by all means" threats sound like schoolyard bluster.

That's not to say that any strike will hold an inherent guarantee of zero casualties. There are casualties aplenty even in air force/navy flight training.”

“No no - I eschew academia or academe (The Groves of Academe was a seminal book for my generation). However, I can bounce a minesweeper off the jetty in Halifax and transit Newfoundland or, if American - Norfolk to key West - it's a great word for ship movements.

However, I like your style.”

“I don't mind him transiting the strange land twixt maleness and femaleness, provided he refuses to use the noun transition as a verb. We need more transsexuals with a confident, fluent command of the language.”

Turtle Garaufis on Aug 22, 2013 at 13:10:04

“I refuse to start using the verb "transiting" and having no one understand what I'm talking about. Part of having a fluent, confident command of the language includes being able to communicate effectively with people who aren't necessarily as absorbed in academia as you are. Good that you don't mind how "strange" we are, though.”
