Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thank you, Cat!  Wow, I can't imagine how this news has escaped me till now -- it's mind-boggling, though.

I think you've become active on ET since I've been dormant, so until very recently, we haven't interacted and to my regret, it seems the recent ones we've been at odds.  Have we finally found common ground?

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes

We'll see. I saw it only a day or so ago. It's a very odd, very neurotic public policy action. Soon perhaps public health officials will criminalize "Brazilian" waxing.

Comments on thong maintenance, anyone?

The clean pudenda (a phrase worth searching btw) is probably beyond the bounds of fashion critique now, but I can't help myself. Here are two perspectives for refection -- "witchcraft" is another's savings multiplier.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.

Apparently the thong is dead.

Thong Underwear Trends - Wearing Thongs No Longer Trendy - Cosmopolitan.com

A little more than 10 years ago, the Macarena was a hit, the Rachel haircut was in, and wearing a thin strip of fabric between your butt cheeks was considered daringly sexy. Thankfully, the dance is now socially unacceptable, and those layers have grown out. But what about the thong? Although our love for it has endured, its popularity appears to be fading, and recent figures show another style is taking over. We conducted an investigation to find out how thongs went from hot to not and target the man-melting undies you must own now.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

See? It's all about sexual competition.
