@rjejr " Do you know WHY American college students visited Amsterdam in the 90's? "
The universal appeal of speed skating?

@JackEatsSparrows Boxy was best. At least there was some character to it versus the "we've carefully designed this to not have any shape or recognizable feature" of pretty much all design and architecture of the 21st century.

Plus they were made of metal back then. Metal is better than plastic.

@ThanosReXXX Heck mine was only bruised, not broken (I think...never got it checked, but since the pain wasn't as excruciating, I presume,) and it took about 2 months. And really 10 months or so before applying pressure in the wrong spot didn't twinge a bit.

Hey, at least I can lay on the floor at all

Guess who just narrowly avoided being in the middle of a 4 car pile up?

Got a feeling I wouldn't have walked away from that one without some bad injuries.

@ThanosReXXX I'm not sure sarcasm actually translates to Asia well. Not sure about @anti-matter in Indonesia, but in Japan, sarcasm/irony as a concept doesn't really exist. There's a word for it. They're aware of it as a concept. But they don't really have it, don't really use it, and don't really get it when used. It's just contextually non-existent there. And it would get pretty blank stares if used. I believe the same is true of China.

Of course I'm sarcastic as heck so that's a bad time....

@NEStalgia I loved my 2000 Cherokee because it was a boxy tank. My current '98 Dakota is great, but I'd love an old F-100 or Chevy Cheyenne

@Delibheel Yah, I meant the humorous picture of the gentlefolk showing how large the hands on her waist was in comparison. As in, be cautious not to squeeze tightly.
Do beauty pageants still have all the other scoring categories besides beauty? or is that just those 'Miss' pageants.

I’m a father of 4 and I would never want anyone one of my children watching these shows especially my daughters.

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

@NEStalgia There isn't much difference between a broken or a bruised rib, pain-wise. Except of course if the broken rib went inside and is poking into your lung. Mine is almost completely broken, but still hanging on some filaments of muscle, tissue or whatever, so that and the other ribs are more or less holding it in place, for now. So, provided I don't get smashed into something else before it heals, I'm good.

As for our Asian friend and the concept of sarcasm: in his case, it's more than just that, of course. Besides his not quite perfect English language skills (which in and of itself already make word jokes all but impossible), he of course also has to deal with his autism, and that's already a big deal having to cope with in your own language, let alone trying to understand cryptic and/or sarcastic remarks in another language...

@ReaderRagfihs Well, I guess that in that case, you might just have potentially escaped also having a broken rib or two, so must have been an angel on your shoulder...

@Delibheel I interpreted the cautionary tale bit more as in: "wow, that girl is WAY too skinny", and in fact she is. It's no small wonder that a lot of people get into trouble with their own weight, because they think that they should also have a "perfect" fashion model body...

@JackEatsSparrows Beauty pageants are about talent. Playboy is for the political analysis. Playstation is "for the gamers."

Ever watch cattle judging? It's fun, they measure the dairyness of the mammary glands, genetic profile, essentially, for milk production, structure of the leg to hip ratios in terms of weight bearing and breeding potential, musculature, meat potential.

Same thing.

Except the "miss" organization that forgets why ratings exist at all and that their show and Senran Kagura share the same audience, and now want to change the tone of the show so that it's not about looks, looks are removed from the show, and it's all about talent and intellectualism. If you've invested or placed advertising budget with them, SELL SELL SELL!

@NEStalgia Ehm... that would be "for the players", except lately, they themselves have apparently forgotten the L...

@NEStalgia But don't attach your credit card details to your Sony account. You may never know how quickly that data ends up in the wrong hands...

Oh, you weren't asking how many days? Been there, done that, learned the hard way, opened a Paypal account.
