An intellectual is a person who has discovered something more interesting than sex.

  1. Guess I'll never be an intellectual then, Caz ;)

  2. Err, does this mean his wife murdered him with an overdose of LSD Justin?

    After all these years she still seems pleased with her efforts.

    Apparently Huxely was just about done when he requested (by a note)that his wife inject him with the drug - it would have been a very colourful ending, at least in Huxley's imagination.

    Did his wife murder him? Nah. Euthanase him? Yeh, at his request.

    Mmm I have a crush on Janice Peterson from SBS news. Intellectualism and sex at once!

    Especially with her happy pants:

  5. They sort of look like angry monster pants Sol.

    Those teeth are awfully BIG.

    I still think it'd be worth it. She has such pretty eyes! And ridiculous pants.

  9. It must be a guy thing Sol. Men are suckers for women in ridiculous pants.

    Men in ridiculous pants? Not so much.

    You're correct. Underpants not so much. Once, a long time ago (in a galaxy far away) I had a liason with a girl who wore yellow underpants with elmo on them. Disturbing.

  11. Extremely disturbing.

    With events like that colouring your life, no wonder you sometimes have trouble sleeping Sol.

    I'd always thought men were far too, err, distracted, to notice the momentary (if at all) appearance of underpants, but you prove me wrong.

    I've never understood the expression describing a man as being a "pants-man", which is currently being thrown around as one of numerous descriptions of the now unemployed (but rich) former CEO of DJs.

    So, is this what it means to be a "pants-man": you take the time to notice pants, or underpants, as the case may be?

    As opposed to being a "frock-man"?

    Truth is I am more likely to be a frock-man than a pants-man. I don't know what it means. I have a suspicion about what it means: nothing.

    According to the urban dictionary it means "Womaniser". I find myself coming across this site quite often when testing out new (or what seemed to be new) neo-logisms.

  13. I know what it means Sol, but don't understand the provenance, as it makes no particular sense.

    Neither does "teaching grandma how to suck eggs".

    Did grandmothers used to have a habit of sucking eggs?
