What is it in the picture that has you excited, Amos? Is it the ship? The ocean? The fishing nets? Or, as an old salt, is it all three and the memories they bring back?

Rapp:

The smell of the ocean brings back fond mammaries indeed.

Yes, Mamma Sophia was an early admittee into the Temple's Hall of Eternal Gratitude. It's like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, only different. We grade on the curve.

Statistically, grading on the curve doesn't and cannot apply to a limited sample size, whether that sample size is two or fifty. You COULD have a sample where all of the data is "out at one end" rather than falling under a curve of normal distribution. In short, you could be making decisions from a curve of abnormal distribution. For the purposes of the TOTGG I suggest a sample size of no less than 10% of the world's total data and more if possible.

Remember this, Amos....size isn't everything.

I can clearly see that Sophia Loren is a strikingly beautiful woman. No question about that. However, she never really turned me on, whereas some others of the time did. Why? Well, that would be a little hard to explain, because it's a very subtle matter. You'd probably have to have a complete understanding of all the lives I've ever lived to even begin to be able to analyze it with any sense of completeness or certainty. It eludes me. I can only say I am aware of it, and that Sophia Loren doesn't ring the bell for me for some reason...something about her facial structure, perhaps (which is, admittedly, very good).

Or it may just be a question of who she reminds me of. Or it might be something else entirely. Maybe it's the look in her eyes. I find something kind of "hard" in the expression of Loren's eyes, and it doesn't pull me in.

Now, have you ever seen the old movie with Jean Simmons and Gregory Peck in it? It's called "The Big Country". Jean Simmons in that movie does ring the bell for me. Why? Well, I'm not sure, but I think it's something about the level of character that she radiates, combined with a certain sense of fragility, combined with great moral strength...and the honest look she has in her eyes.

That moves me. I'm not all that concerned about the size of her breasts, although I imagine they were probably quite attractive, as breasts go.

I'll have to consult Chongo on this and see what he has to say. ;-) My guess is, he'd take either Loren or Simmons on a rainy day.

You could tuck a woman into a pair of overalls and Little Hawk would be content.

We've been around this loop a few times before in this thread, I do believe.

I was married to a GORGEOUS woman with larrrge breasts for 13 years, 5 months, 17 days, 11 and 1/2 hours. Don't get me wrong... we had some good times... during the first week.

I don't like big tits anymore.

There's a song in that. (You don't bring me flowers anymore...)

I am content if I genuinely admire the woman...not just for her figure, but for her entire state of being.

I don't know enough about Winona to be sure about her enitre state of being, but I'll say this: she has wonderful eyes. And she has generally shown very good taste in her choice of movie roles. The unfortunate shoplifting incident scuppered her career at its peak just like Sinead O'Connor's career got scuppered by tearing up a picture of the Pope. Amazing how one little misstep in the spotlight can undo so much, isn't it?

"I am content if I genuinely admire the woman..." Me too. And I did admire her, mostly for her personality, sense of humour, intelligence, and so on. I just didn't know she was a lying, coniving, manipulative bitch. She played me like a fiddle from the overture on. I stayed because of a sense of committment and duty, but, in the end, I chose sanity and got out.

Maybe it's a subconcious thing but good looking women with big tits turn me off.

That pic of Winnie turns me on. Her eyes are mezmorizing. If she was smiling, I think I'd melt.

Minds me...

Aside... one of the lines in a song that has truly stuck with me as pure poetry is from a Jethro Tull song "White Innocence"...

"And with the clearest eyes of forever gray."

Such poetry of grand form from the same that wrote "Snot running down his nose. Greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes." and far more gross and derogatory lyrics. At odds, it seems.

Perhaps it's all poetry and it's simply my perception of the subject matter and it's presentation that either enrapts me or disgusts me. After all, poetry, and all art, is meant to engage, to effect and affect, to entertain, to disdain, to stimulate whatever emotion and sense.

Being a human is fun, innit? For the most part, eh?

The eyes of a woman whose soul is near the surface, engaged with her thoughts, are vibrant, awake, irresistible. Those who are otherwise also show it in their eyes--silhouettes on the shade is as close as you get to the real thing.

When you look into their eyes and they are near, you fall into eternity in a heartbeat.

Hey, we had a nice lively dinner last night with a visit from Monteal Mudcatters Dorothy Parsall and Robin. We kicked up quite live and the spaghetti was delicious.

This morning, however, my head is a bit thick for some reason.

Mudcatters criss-crossing the country. I see the Getaway thread passing up and down the screen these days. I have another trip to Tucson soon, but no further west.

I use the weed whacker to clear the grass growing through the brick patio out back. MOM can pull a chair over there and enjoy breakfast if she wants. Is anyone making muffins or croissants tomorrow? Drop a few by for her, please. I left her some yogurt and fresh fruit. The fly swatter isn't for the flies - it's to keep the dogs out of her breakfast zone. She'll have to eat fast if she's out there.

LH, Shame McBride was killed a few hours ago in a tragic accident at Tim's. He apparently grabbed for a doughnut that was still in the fryer, slipped, kicked a rather nasty "biker chick" in the ankle, and she upended him into the boiling grease. The OPP are investigating, but it appears at this time that it is being treated as a "regrettable, but fortunate, accident" and no charges will be made. The grease in the fryer had to be discarded as it was considered "too filthy now" for continued use, according to a spokesman for the doughnut chain.

Little Hawk, what's this I read on another thread about a dachshund being able to inflate himself (his specific gravity?) by 800% on a rainy night? Have you published on this topic? Seems to me that in an incredibly important discovery in the world of physics. And possibly in veterinary medicine.

A dachshund who is able to inflate himself by 800% on a rainy night?

Of course! He's a member of the Elite Dachshund Special Ops Team referenced about fifty posts back. It's not a natural ability, but one achieved through a combination of selective breeding, genetic modification, intensive training, and heinous fuckery.

It's not a question of inflation, Stilly. It's a matter of increasing the effect of the Earth's gravitational attraction on a single, small body, namely the Dachshund. I said that a Dachshund can increase his specific gravity by up to 800% at will! And they can. They become increadibly heavy, sticking to the floor as if to a magnet. They will not be moved! I have no idea how they do it, but they have astonishing abilities in this regard. These abilities are triggered by a desire to avoid:

1. inclement weather
2. baths
3. work
4. and inconvenience of any sort whatsoever.

Okay, it seems to be working again....

The ability to greatly increase one's specific gravity is not a trait unique to dachshunds. Just ask the parents of a human five-year-old who has been told he can't have the latest Leggo or Transformers thingie. It's like the floor of the Toys-R-Us store has suddenly become the positive pole of the world's largest magnet, and the kid has a negative charge.

My ex worked at an office of a federal agency many years ago when PCs were just becoming common office tools. The oddest policy was in place - as long as the thing was running, even if it was old and decrepit, you had to repair it, not replace it. He learned a lot by ordering parts and repairing, or sending them out. They finally figured out that they saved time and a lot of money if the machines simply were - er - reformatted by dropping them hard somewhere on one corner of the box. Concrete usually worked as the surface of choice. And on the box, a back bottom corner was used is my guess.

I find with wetware, a kinder and gentler approach, such as soaking in fine brandy, works to reset all parameters and scramble the magnetic domains comfortably.
