We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Well, Marianne, unfortunately not in China. The men have to import women from all over east Asia. As far as the 'bizarre scientific study' on fingers and penises, wouldn't 'stretching' the penis be an unfair advantage? You can't stretch your finger, so what good is the study? And who stretches a penis anyway? Those things have a mind of their own and just have a nice stretch anytime they feel like it. It's as if they have automatic timing devices inherent in their heads that make 'em stretch for a good look-about to see if there's anything interesting out there.
