    You guys are acting like American women are dogs! I don't know about other cities but spend some time in the 50's and 5th Ave. NYC during the summer. Or better yet, spend some time in Bergdorf Goodman's womens store in the summer (yes, I admit to doing it). Your socks will get knocked off!


    Not at all! I love American Girls but to Love American Girls is not to say that other countries dont have amazing women.

    I have my favorites for different reasons but French girls have a little extra way of flirting. I love a lot of countries women, Austrian, Czech, Hungary, Spain, Italy, Nigeria, Iran, Korea, Japan produce some over the top beauties but to tell you the truth, except for Some South Americans, no girls flirt like the French girls, its in their blood.

    God Almighty that his horrible! It looks like what Julie from the Love Boat would wear. Or maybe it's Fred's dress outfit for Scooby's wedding in '73.

    Yes, but look at that lapel roll. [​IMG]

    Why would you watch the Love Boat when you can watch reruns of Sanford and Son?

    My limited experience is that the difference between Air France stewardesses/flight attendants and every other airline I've flown is, um, eye opening. The Air France stewardesses were not necessarily the most beautiful but even in their uniforms, young and old, they were far and away the most together in terms of style details, poise, and manners. I could almost begin to daydream that I had somehow been transported back to the era when air travel was classy...almost.

    No no, it's Cheers for me. I'm operating from memory.

    Well, it's a fact that Marc Guyot loves colours. I like to tone down his outfits a little. For example, in that picture, I would keep the shirt and the handkerchief and pick a more sober jacket colour.

    It feels like something Paul Lynde would wear, which isn't necessarily bad, I suppose.

    I love that they smoke; it's so glamorous and it keeps them petite.

    Ugh, tell me you're not a real physician.

    He's a metaphysician. Smoking may be good for the soul. Either way, the French smoke everywhere as do the Italians-like when they exercise.

    met·a·phy·si·cian P Pronunciation Key (mt-f-zshn)
    n.
    One who specializes or is skilled in metaphysics.

    And the rather sloppy dictionary.com definition of metaphysics:

    met·a·phys·ics P Pronunciation Key (mt-fzks)
    n.
    (used with a sing. verb) Philosophy. The branch of philosophy that examines the nature of reality, including the relationship between mind and matter, substance and attribute, fact and value.

    Since we are (IMHO) moving toward something like a post-metaphysical world, my name is supposed to be something of a joke. I am in no way a medical doctor. And I don't smoke.

    You know, I've been to Paris and I was struck by one thing: they (men and women) were just as fat, rude, ignorant and as poorly dressed as anyone else in the world. The only difference is that they spoke French and ate -- on average, at any rate -- better food.

    Actually, the way they speak French is different as well...Parisan French sounds like the voices of angels compared to the way that Canadian francophones and Quebecois chew the language.

    Besides, everyone knows that Korean women are the best looking in the world, followed by Canadian and Japanese women.

    You wouldn't be an English speaking Canadian, would you?[​IMG]
