Why would anyone "celebrate" such a thing? Totally illogical..
You still haven't gotten the hang of dealing with my brand of sarcasm, have you?
You do know what a bra is, right?
You apparently don't know what happens when they come off, do you?
You're quoting Mad magazine? Really with that? That statement is not only based on wives-tales, it is medically and objectively flawed.
The only "flaw" in that statement, is that it's not true in 100% of the female population.

Now, if you are male, and your significant other is female there is a workaround. Ask "her" to submit to laser hair removal, do bench presses, and have her run 10 miles a day.. The bonus there if you can get her BMI below about 11% (give or take), she'll stop menstruating, ostensibly eliminating the need for birth control measures.

And yes, that is medically true, look it up. Never mind, I did it for you: https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/conditionsandtreatments/menstruation-athletic-amenorrhoea

Who me? Nooo, never... :p

I think you might have missed the point.
That doesn't cover what you were talking about..

Oh but it does, in my typical roundabout way.. I explained how to avoid everything becoming "bigger, hairier, and closer to the ground". By extension and extrapolation it explained how the condition comes about.

Although as trite as my quote from Mad was, it was medically accurate. I could have explained the continued grown of hair in the pubic region, in both density and area covered. Individuals with dark hair are more prone to this than we natural blondes. For example, At age 30, I dated a raven haired girl 10 years my junior, I would often remark, (after, but not before, a lovemaking session), "oh my gosh, you have more hair on your chest than I do".

BTW, women produce testosterone in their ovaries, although not in the quantity as we males Their voices change as well. But again, not as dramatically. So,at its most basic, testosterone produces muscle, while estrogen is responsible for fat (and lips!), which is stored for its necessity in the event of pregnancy

I could have looked up the current percentage of America women considered medically "obese". But I didn't..

Anecdotally, our local CBS affiliate's dark haired, "chief meteorologist" turned up pregnant. I mumbled to myself, "she's never going to lose that baby weight". She hasn't. Having dark hair and a stocky build, you can be certain that after her taking off the underwire bra, and a couple pairs of Spanks, I'd lay money on the fact that, "everything is bigger, hairier, and closer to the ground".

To keep this somewhere near on topic, I'll say "I wouldn't be caught dead on Tic-Tok talking about big breasted women", in spite of the fact I have nothing to lose by doing so.

As far as opinions on social media go, I'll say, "everyone has a mouth and a rectal orifice, it's a shame they always choose the latter for the dissemination of their worthless, self righteous, bullsh!t.

And that's where I tune out..
Your loss....:p

What Apple should have done with this unruly exec instead of forcing him out, is to strip him naked in front of any and all lesbians in their employ. Thereby allowing them the opportunity to point, stare, and laugh at his man parts. (Sort of a sexual, "eye for an eye" tactic). erstwhile, he was handcuffed to his office chair.

Come to think of it, maybe TSMC has a "woke" contingent as well, thereupon raising their chip prices in disgust and retribution for his immoral and vile video.

@mailpup There, perhaps a bit overly satirical, but right back on topic nonetheless. (y) (Y) 🤣

Right, and short-sighted attitudes like yours are why wealth is concentrated at the very top 0.1% of the population. THIS is how it happens. People amass far more wealth than they'd ever need and that money is no longer in the economy which causes the economy to falter.

The existence of billionaires is not a symptom of a healthy economy, it's a symptom of a failing one. Clearly you don't understand that because your emotional response isn't one that comes from someone who has a clue.
Unequal wealth distribution is caused by compounding wealth / opportunity (across generations), propensity of middle class class to not save (even those that can), tax systems that allow inequality to grow, and corporations that are designed to make as much profit at the expense of both consumers and workers alike* while taking advantage of economies of scale to out-muscle smaller companies (hello telcoms). All of which can be addressed without forcing people out of jobs early.

*small companies try the same thing, they tend to just be less efficient at it

Cancel Culture at it's best. This world is going to suck in the next few years when we all have to walk around without talking because we just might offend someone else. Sad times....

I do agree with you... No middle ground, no interpretation of the context, of the intended meaning or effect on the audience, it is either black or white! That is the epitome of hypocrisy and it amounts to some kind of "dictatorship of the thought" in my opinion. It takes away all possibility for the people to just think about what is said, all the thinking has been done for them beforehand! This goes much further than it seems and is an extremely serious problem (well, at least IMHO). Orwell must be doing the spinning-top in his grave if he sees this... This is the thought police in action, and the best part of it is that Apple probably acts in this way to *avoid* any potential criticism or liability! The police does not even have to move a single finger! Either that, or Jeff Williams the COO wanted his team back...
