Whether that bulge be a wallet or anything else, the worth of a man cannot be measured by the size of the bulge in the trousers.

worth of man to woman = f[(bulge wallet)^2+(bulge pants)-(bulge mantitties)]

hopefully that function is not comprehensive - maybe it's missing "character", "love", etc . . . .

If not, I would reassess who I date and/or my opinion about women. Just my humble opinion.

It's sad to see that nowadays this function can be applied to a good quantity of the women....

the function however changes after they turn 33...

Our worth of woman to man function could be reduced also as Alfie's FBB...

which also changes the women's function results after 33...

shallow, shallow

I am not and never will be a "complete package". I seek balance in all things, and even though I know and accept I'll never be complete or perfect, that's no reason to stop trying, and I suspect that I may now or will soon be a decent person. Today, I'm a host parent to a foreign exchange student, and a mentor to new members in our speaking group, and I am amazed at what I've been missing. If you're not lending your talents to help develop the next generation, then I would humbly question any assertions of being "complete".

Sounds pretty complete to me, Thomas.

Indeed; last time I saw a vintage Lancia Fulvia Zagato Sport with this very large sticker saying: "It's better to live rich than to die rich".

"Have nothing in your houses that you know not to be useful, or believe to be beautiful"- William Morris (1834 - 1896).

I try to follow Morris' admonition. I love beautiful and well made things, particularly things crafted by hand, by artists, and artisans. I get just as excited about a beautiful hand made bamboo fly rod as I do about a bespoke suit. I try to buy high quality things that will last a lifetime. I abhor the disposable culture of cheap flimsy crap that is made to be thrown out and replaced.
I have made an effort to fill my living and working environment with things that are well made, well designed, and that I find aesthetically pleasing. Even simple tools, like well made knives, or a sturdy shovel make mundane tasks such as cooking and gardening more rewarding. I have a strange fondness for my German front loading washing machine. (It's just so well engineered, I can't help but admire it.)

King Lear would have understood:

O, reason not the need: our basest beggars
Are in the poorest thing superfluous:
Allow not nature more than nature needs,
Man's life's as cheap as beast's:

When I have the opportunity I really want to host a foreign student, or one from the countryside. It would be fantastic. Give someone a hand up.

What's happenin' hot stuff?

seriously, my wife was an exchange student in her senior year in high school. she lived with a wonderful baptist family in memphis. it was a precious experience for her, although it turned out she was more "urban" than the host family (they were aghast when she was carrying a cellphone back then). but there was another exchange student in her school back then who was almost raped by the host father. i guess this thing could really go either way.
