1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    I suppose I think of it that the currently "older" generations hail from a time when nudity amongst men was much more common - back when guys hung out with guys (boyscouts' numbers were much greater, etc). Nowadays people are more free to express themselves individualistically on the surface, but things like all the lawsuits in highschools and the fact that nudity gets demonized (in America at least) - makes it much less appropriate. Which, if you want to be long winded about it, is unfortunate.

    I for one simply can't imagine walking around naked in front of other guys, even if it was to go from a shower to a locker. I don't find it abhorrant, it's just that given the choice I would always prefer some cover.

    don't be so prissy.

    i've changed/showered in locker rooms pretty much every day since junior high (i'm now 48) and i've long since stopped noticing male nudity. i've also gone to saunas in germany and scandanavia that were open to men and women -- and i pretty much stopped noticing the naked women sitting next to me.

    i don't get why any adult male raised in the US or northern europe would have issues with same sex nudity in a locker room. yes, if you're grossly overweight, you probably aren't keen on letting everyone see you in the buff. but if you're more or less normal looking, with no body image issues, then taking off clothes or seeing another man take his off just isn't a big deal.

    anyone who's squeamish about male nudity should do a stint in the military. try taking a shit in no-privacy toilets with ten other men, where the naked 250-lb guy next to you is grunting away while eating boiled eggs -- i didn't know whether to shit or vomit it was so gross smelling and sounding.

    I may never be able to banish this image from my head. Why the fuck was he eating boiled eggs?

    What else was he supposed to do with them?

    God only knows what he was doing eating a nasty lunch while on a public shitter. But that's the military. Stuff like that becomes more or less normal.

    Hell. there's nothing like the military to expand your horizons and expose you to stuff you never dreamt of as a civilian. (Actually, I got to experience that without being a member of the military.)

    Actually, with the passage of time, I'm more amused by this guy than I was at the time. Back then, it was the most revolting thing imaginable.

    When I'm around the right people, I can do an imitation of a naked 250-lb man eating boiled eggs while taking a shit that will have my listeners horking up their corndogs they're laughing so hard.

    There's nothing like the sound of someone peeling an egg, farting, then taking a bite, coughing as some of it gets caught in his throat and then more or less simultaneously hearing his explosive diarrhea.

    You just don't want to have experienced it in person.

    I was actually "sampling" the punchline from a joke - perhaps a movie quote - the set-up for which escapes me.

    I wasn't being prissy, per se, I'm just saying that given the preference I'd much rather not be exposed to sweaty man sausage. If you want to say "sure, roll out the wang parade" that's entirely your opinion. But I wouldn't call mine prissy!

    I understand the use of 'prissy'. For some of us who were raised in simpler times, going naked was no big deal. Todays partitions and private cubicals and people saying they don't want to see or be seen just seems silly. Silly as in what's the big deal - who cares. For us, it was only girls or women who were concerned about such things - and hence I think the reason why 'prissy' may have been used. If you don't want to see anything - don't look, you don't want to been seen - don't parade around.
