I'm glad we had this chat.

 

 Yeah, that's what everybody's doing anyway and they all look like crap. biggrin.gif

 

 (T-shirts, clothes that don't fit, dirty jeans etc.) Glad I found this forum.

But such is the nature of the fora nowadays. I bet you could start a thread regarding button boots and it will turn into a "why chicks shouldn't wear booty shorts" threak. The old days are done and gone. We either roll with it or get rolled over.

Plato got it right: Education is a painful process of dragging people, kicking and screaming, out of the cave into the light.

We shouldn't forget that this process is painful to the dragger as well as the dragged.

Aren't there two corollaries:

1) 99% of the people around you are slobs and won't know the difference.

2) From five feet away, no one will be able to tell the difference.
