    What? If there is only one way to button a jacket, it isn't matter of opinion, but a matter of physical impossibility. You cannot button the top buttons of a 4x1 jacket because there are no holes to put them through.

    Strictly speaking, one can button both buttons on a two-button single-breasted jacket, because there is a hole to accommodate the bottom button. However, one shouldn't because, almost always, such jackets are not cut to be buttoned that way. Fastening the bottom button will close the quarters in a way the jacket was not structured for, leading to often significant pulling and tightness.

    I'm frankly quite baffled that you don't see why a 4x1 DB jacket and a 2-button SB jacket are not comparable in this regard. It's like asking why you can't take down the convertible top on a minivan.

    I'm here briefly to lend credence to the winning side.

    Since you didn't insert any insults directed at me, I will take this as tacit endorsement of everything I've ever said about anything.

    Sir F, you must drive the grand prix course in the 458 and post an onboard video. Get your girlfriend to hold the camera while you drive. It will be a good test of her abilities with the iPhone, and it will help you decide whether she should move in with you to become the Official Sir F Photographer.

    Well, when I say "must" I mean that I'd like you to...

    Isaac Asimov made a strong case against this, claiming the situation impossible. I would agree with his explanation.

    What would I do without dick and fart jokes? Makes life so good. I wonder at what income, or level of wealth I would have to reach before I no longer found them funny? :confused: I don't want to think about it too hard.

    Mrs. Trix has a convertible that she enjoys driving with the top down at every opportunity (that's the car's top, not her top; though, come to think of it, I never asked her about that). Am I correct that you would not recommend that she trade for a minivan? How about a minivan that has a sun roof?

    The good news is that their nadir of popularity probably lies somewhere near your income and level of wealth, so if you go either way, you're bound to enjoy them even more.

    So, it's win-win.

    Foo makes the fallacy of believing that he is capable of thinking objectively.
