Re: PICTURE POST!

We know vast areas of science and science fiction, we can beat most people in an intellectual arguement(debate) about anything, yet we get stuck on a sweater vest(tank top). Gosh we are a unique bunch.

Re: PICTURE POST!

I have said it before, and I'll say it again. We need representatives from all the English-speaking nations to get together and have a huge language summit to figure this shit out. We have too many spellings and too many words that mean different things depending on where you are. We need one universal English Language.

Um...no. Spanish will not be discussed at the English Language summit. Spanish speakers can have their own summit.

I'm not talking about a universal language. I'm just talking about sorting out all the differences specifically in the English language.

Besides, if we're really talking about a worldwide universal language, everybody knows it'll be Chinese.

Re: PICTURE POST!

Yeah that cute.
I was told that I was put into a walker from day one, all I would do is follow people. The old phrase- sometimes you need to run before you walk, my life story.

WTF's a sweatervest? do you mean a tank-top?
Am Eng - Brit Eng (approximately; there is some regional variation)
Sweatervest - "Tank-Top"/Sleeveless Jumper
Vest - Waistcoat (not to be confused with a gilet, though the difference can sometimes be more marginal)
Undershirt (esp. coll. "wifebeater") - Singlet/Vest

This is the reason they are one of my favourite items as well. Sometimes you want a bit more warmth, but you can't wear a sweater under many jackets (depending on cut).
And I'm the gay one ...

I'm Italian and Holdfast is British. We get a pass for talking about clothes.
