Don't forget the starch or it will become floppy and frumpy just after a few uses.

Re: Just when you think that the world couldn't get any stupider

I love you.

Edit: Actually, come to think of it, after giving birth three times within 3 1/2 years my pelvic floor could do with a good starching, but that's probably TMI.

Well, this isn't too surprising in the Middle East.
It isn't the fact that women aren't allowed to drive that's surprising, at least to me. It's this guy's bizarre justification for it that blows my mind.

(Sorry, would explain in more detail, but I need to go straighten my pelvis.)
I'd like to clarify that this is not the middle east in general, it's Saudi Arabia in particular.

There's no problem with women driving in the UAE. Not sure about other countries.

Although the UAE is hardly without faults of its own, of course. Its drug policies are so draconian that it makes ours look tame.

Sheikh al-Luhaydan, a judicial and psychological consultant to the Gulf Psychological Association, told Saudi website sabq.org that "physiological science and functional medicine [found] that it automatically affects ovaries and rolls up the pelvis.
Now let's all sing:

Roll up the pelvis
We'll have a pelvis of fun
Roll up the pelvis
We've got the sheiks on the run
Zing, boom, like Elvis
Sing out a song of good cheer
Now's the time to roll the pelvis
For the gang's all here!

I don't play the gender card at work. My (male) colleagues tend to forget that I lack the dangly bits and consider me a buddy.

Re: Just when you think that the world couldn't get any stupider

I'd rather not be forced to chose between the two of you. Couldn't I have a male equivalent to a harem? *plugs in halo and tries desperately to look innocent and ladylike*

In a trekbbs thread a long time ago I ended up with seven husbands, divided into senior and junior husbands, though a couple of the husbands seemed more interested in each other than in me.

Hey I've hung around a lot of treatment plants and you're about the second one I've spoken with without dangly bits.

How is your plant set up? I know you folks do it a little differently across the pond.
