In your experience, do people only speak and socialize to attract attention? Sounds like a pretty vapid existence to me.
Dude. You can't let anything said about you go without a response. And typically it's a verbose one. And almost all but assured to be pretentious. But yes. You don't care what people think about you. Literally not at all.

Also today's lesson in heterosexuality: you should rush to immediately occupy a seat that a woman (at least 7.5 thanks) because you might get the faintest wisp of a vapor from her vajeen.

I literally have no idea how sitting after a chick on the subway is meaningful, either in your germophobic or sexual outlook. But thankfully you don't care what others think about you so surely you won't try to explain yourself.

Am I pretentious or are you just an idiot?

You sit down on the subway. The seat is conspicuously warm.

1. It is warm because a sweaty fat man flatulated excessively.

2. It is warm because a pretty young woman sat there on her long ride home.

I dare you to claim it matters not which is true.

I mean dude, last time I took the Express to Downtown Manhattan I didn't spend the trip checking out the one girl seated and determine if she was hot enough for me to sit after her.

I know realize I need to cruise some bathhouses.

I hope you are the only one here stupid enough to have understood me this way.

Yes!!! Now we’re talking! This is the most interesting thing anyone’s said in this discussion. 100 Foo points!

However, the problem I see is that the taper of the handle demands a hand of a certain size and positioned in a certain way for optimal fit and control. Otherwise, you can easily find yourself having to grip where it is too thin and lose stability. It doesn’t mean dribbling food all over the place but certainly some tapers will be more comfortable to use for certain people than others.

The advantage of a uniform width is that you can grab the handle anywhere and still get the same level of stability and grip.
Obviously I haven't done research on this, but I suspect that the uniform width is uniformly suboptimal for all users. Also obvious is that function is not the only consideration when buying functional objects.

I'm not sure I've ever considered anything other than the previous occupant's apparent hygiene when deciding whether to sit in a newly available seat.

No one thinks you spend your train rides eyefucking girls before sitting after them.

But everyone thinks you expressing that you only sit in seats on the train after a hot girl does is creepy as shit. (And doubling down on it even more so).

I generally avoid newly available seats, regardless of who’s sat in them. I don’t like feeling the warmth of a stranger, even indirectly. That said, if I must, I’d rather it be the warmth of a human being I find attractive than one I find unattractive. Obviously, hygiene is part of that equation.

I do not seek out seats vacated by attractive women—to clarify the ridiculous for the less intellectually abled.

You're moving the goal posts. In your post that I replied to, you implied that sitting down in a seat under Scenario #1 means you are "less straight" somehow. That's what I disagree with. What I don't disagree with is which one might be more acceptable, especially if someone is farting all over it, sweaty fat man or not.

I’m saying have no preference between #1 or #2 implies many things.
