  • Things that make no sense at all

    OK, I will start. Don't say it's me, I own that.

    High heel shoes on woman. Now, I am willing to admit that they seem stupid on men, and do not anticipate my designer line of high heels for men.

    But high heels on men would at least have a lick of logic. The classic definition of an attractive guy is TALL, dark (not grey), and handsome. It's only the girls that want a taller partner. Guys prefer hot girls like Megan Fox (5') Hadein Panatier (5'). Only seriously drunk retards can watch much of Jersey Shore, so I only watched so much, but even drunk it is obvious that the hot star is Snooky, not quite 4' 9". Guys look at the hair and work their way down. If a guy is looking at the ground when you walk by, girl, you are doing it all wrong.

    I live in the gayest town ever, and hanging out on the corner with my male friends, gay and straight, talking about the girls walking by, there is one thing I have never heard. "Check the shoes on her!, look how tall she is!"

    What I have heard is, " I was really into her until she showed me her shoe closet in her rented apartment, it had 40,000$ of high heels." So I bailed. It's as bad as a girl with more than 3 cats.

    How about premeditated murder being 1st degree?

    OK, some of you like high heels. Apparently. Murder is also unpopular. I hear they might kill you for it.

    Strange though all the categories of gore. Why is thinking about it before killing someone considered a bad thing? I'm sure I would. Hell, I think if people thought out the possible downsides of killing me, maybe they won't. I like to think so. It's as if you are a violent angry impulsive pitt bull of a shit head, we should give you a break. Why?

      OK, first degree murder not so funny

      Tough crowd here. Well....., how about stuff that does make sense.

      Let's say you are in a fight and get shot or stabbed or just all FUBAR. It's sorta like you are pretending you are KH, but for dramatic effect, ride your uni off the cliff.

      Now, when you get to the bottom, you may feel blood in your mouth. Swallow it. Whatever you do, don't spit it out. You will not be in the second season if you don't swallow.

        You're quite right imho.
        I don't undertstand high heels either.
        And i specifically Don' understand why on earth why anyone should, when undressing to jump into bed with anyone, should take off everything except this dangerous "shoes"?

          The heels are supposed to accentuate certain other qualities, much in the same way medieval torture device can make you taller.

          Interestingly, high heels started out as men's fashion. Horsemen found a small heel useful, and out of that grew a fashion of some incredibly high heels for men. It showed one's status, as anyone wearing such ridiculous shoes clearly had servants to do their bidding.

          On the topic of wanting a taller partner, however, I must respectfully disagree. Girls that are taller than me make me
          The other wheel is a superfluous burden.

            My girl seldom wears high heels. But she's 6' 1". I'm very glad I don't have to play the "fashion games" that women do. As mentioned above, I think high heels are less about making a short person less short (unless your name is Prince, perhaps) and more about accentuating your calves, and changing your gait to a more sexy one. Sorry, gait is not a sexy word at all. And when the heels are super-high, the walking doesn't look sexy to me, it looks awkward and dangerous.

            Premeditated murder? Not that I think you were being serious, but the penalty is worse for people who kill on purpose. Negligence, carelessness or accident are less evil.

            Back on topic:
            My rental car came with two sets of keys, attached to each other on a non-openable cable. Two thick keys and two even-thicker fobs. Why give me two sets of keys that are locked together??

            I finally got an answer to this question, but it still doesn't make sense to me. The nice lady from the rental car agency in Moab (and they were very nice) said they do that because the cars tend to be nomadic. Keeping a spare key in an office somewhere doesn't help much, since the car may end up on the other end of the country.

            But I can't help thinking it would be a least a little more useful than having a driver lose *both* keys at the same time anyway. Maybe those keys are good at being found, since they usually are accompanied by identification (on yet another thick piece of plastic).

            The car rental agent also told me I could cut the cable and only carry one of the sets of keys, but I'd still have to keep track of both and return them or risk being charged a replacement fee. Pocket stuffers!

              I am glad that someone is trying to keep this thread alive.

              Still, the two car keys fastened together does have some logic. Obviously, the second key is for the other door. How do they know what door you will use ? These cars are sold all around a world where all english speaking people drive on the wrong side of the road. Compared to that, having two identical keys to use, no matter which side you get in, with identical locks, makes sense. Or at least no one get's killed, usually.

              They try not to confuse us about what we are buying, except when they do. So as not to confuse people, it is illegal to sell yellow limes. Left on the tree, limes grow as large as lemons and turn yellow. They are only smaller than lemons, and green because they must be picked sooner to be legally sold. This is also why lime juice is more expensive than lemon juice. And when you buy lemon juice, it's in a green bottle. Associated with higher quality than yellow.

              Another one is the love of 3. Defies all logic. Jesus is told to have died on good Friday, then rose 3 days later on Sunday. 48 hours takes 3 days. More proof that Christians love 3's more than math.

                which agency? I'll be interested
                (cos I may fly directly to Moab next time ... ...
                though I hesitate because when coming back to Paris from Salt Lake City (Delta strange flightpaths because I came from SF) the food was the worst I ever had on a plane - it'll make a warthog barf -

                  I'm pretty sure it was Enterprise Rent a Car. It's a shuttle ride into town from the airport, so allow time for that. They are especially nice if they are the only agency in town. But then again they're very small.

                  They gave you food? We didn't get fed by Delta, even on several first class flights! And we've been stuck with Delta for most of our recent flying, due to where we were going, available schedules and (smaller factor) price. We're not fans.

                  On our most recent flight, returning from Florida, our first leg was delayed. This was going to cause a conflict with the second leg, so they changed us to an earlier outgoing flight, to a different connecting city. And didn't call me. So we had near-panic at the airport, with only about 1/2 hour to get through security, get on the airport train and run down the hallway to not get locked out. Then a very short scheduled layover, so the same stress and tension about the second leg, which was in Atlanta. Lots of walking to get around that airport, plus a train also. But the second flight had a delay, so we were finally able to relax when we got to the gate for that one.

                    well for a 10 hours flight from Salt Lake to Paris I suppose they ought to provide some food .... though christening what they gave us as "food" is a bit far fetched
                    Delta is a strange provider: My trip was part professional and though I paid with Dollars Delta forced me to transform these Dollars into Euros (because I am French) ... I had to pay for the exchange and Delta refused to give me an invoice labeled in Dollars (which I needed to justify expenses). Since we must travel with US companies other members of my Team carefully try to fly with United which does not play this kind of trick
