Comparisons of A-Rod and Jeter should fold "likely to give you VD" into the analysis. My recollection is that A-Rod is dating a porn star or something (as well as, one assumes, his wife), so it's not clear which way this factor militates.

I was figuring that the details of the tying would make it clear.

If someone says "social disease," he or she is probably over sixty and was always prudish.

Then there's "VD," which strikes me as something only over 35 or 40 year-olds say.

I'm in the "STD" age-bracket, which I guess I'd put at 25-35.

Kids these days are saying "STI". Or so I am told.

Jack Mormon's 31 reminds me of the routine that Eddie Murphy used to do about how venereal diseases have gotten progressively worse: first came syphilis, which you could cure with a shot; then herpes, for which there is no cure; then AIDS, for which there is no cure, and it's fatal.

The punchline was, roughly, "What's next? You put your dick in, and it explodes?"

The "social disease" euphemism cracks me up. I'd heard it (or read it, more likely) for years before I figured it out. I'd thought it referred to mononucleosis and, uh, other stuff that got passed around when you went to college; I knew all about HIV at the time, mind you.

I think at 39 I was in the lull between VD and STD. I heard VD growing up, and I think even at the time it sounded antiquated, and I just said things like "herpes" or "clap" myself.

To emphasize the pathogen, rather than the condition, particularly so that people better understand that it's still a problem even if you're asymptomatic. It's also more somewhat more accurate (e.g., HPV is the infection, but cervical cancer is the disease). Who knows if this change in nomenclature will do anything, but that's the motivation at least.

I had a slight flu last week, and it reminded me that one of the first signs of syphillis is "flu-like symptoms." Maybe you get a brief rash on your genitals that clears up in a couple of days, maybe you just get a little fever, but from then on out, you're infectious but asymptomatic for maybe like five years. Then the lesions begin. Ugh, brrr.

Flu-like symptoms are also the first signs of just about every other godawful disease in the book, so of course I spent a while considering all of them.

If double-barrelled, could have been any one of a number of things.

I think the original had the foregrip ahead of the drum magazine; it's what's often shown in historical gangster movies.

The great majority of Thompsons were made during the war with straight magazines and no foregrip. The damn things weigh about nine pounds and are full of machined parts, so they were expensive too.

The Russians made millions of PPShs, their basic submachine gun, which has a drum and wooden stock like the original Tommy.

was a side-by-side double rifle--uncommon, expensive, but not out of the question for a guy who hunts African game

Those hand built English jobs are neat. For you New Yorkers, Holland and Holland has a showroom out there. Check out the prices.

95's link is an example of the kind of retail industry that has been thriving in the current millennium. I know I'm certainly enjoying this booming economy!

Trader Vic's is not the same as Trader Joe's. They are two different traders. One trades in late swanky restaurants and the other in yuppie freezer pizzas.

You know, TJ's yuppie freezer pizzas are surprisingly good.

101: it's okay. The frozen pizza eating is a natural reaction to stress; it doesn't necessarily mean she's been injured.

Bespoke weapons? Are people's hands really that different?

Hands, finger length, arm length, etc. There are custom grip makers for handguns that have you trace your hands when you order.

101: I am okay!!!!! I may eat a frozen pizza for dinner and watch a few episodes of Six Feet Under. You'd think with the boys gone I'd actually have something to *do*, but no.

They are indeed.

"My father was slaughtered by a six- fingered man. He was a great swordmaker, my father. And when the six-fingered man appeared and requested a special sword, my father took the job. He slaved a year before he was done. The six-fingered man returned and demanded it, but at one-tenth his promised price. My father refused. Without a word, the six-fingered man slashed him through the heart..."

I don't know about weapons, but I have a hell of a time getting boxing gloves that fit.
