Champion manspreader on the bus in semi-lotus position. Pay particular attention to how he maximizes surface area and daintily brings his feet together for the dismount. Style points for the unconventional use of color in the shirt and tie, while he uses his hand to modestly shield his junk from our prying eyes. Note that in this variation he is completely occupying the seats on the right side of the grab bar while also allowing his knee to intrude to the left of the grab bar, potentiating a knee to knee interaction. That kind of thing doesn’t happen by accident. No, that’s planning and strategy. 

Semi-rant: How come men carry their laptops around in chic little messenger bags while women damage their shoulder ligaments with big honkin’ lead weight bags?  

Let’s face it, men get lighter laptops with multiple turbo massively parallel CPUs and terabytes of RAM pushing Moore’s law to the edge so they’re razor thin, sleek and slide easily into the padded sleeve of those messenger bags with room to spare. Oh, yeah. 

We get the equivalent of IBM Selectras. 

Alright, I admit it, I have toy envy.

  2. Hey RD, I worked today too and I will be working tomorrow too but may take off in the evening to watch fireworks somewhere. Can we still say Happy 4th?

    Watching Tour de France — something about those bikers and the scenery and the cheering people and commentators are soothing. (speaking of junk, last night’s winner’s (Marcel Kittel) was trying to say something through his skinny, heh).

  3. Older women -of course, you’re not there yet-should sit on either side of him, pushing his legs with their knees, saying “Excuse me, excuse me dear” until he’s black and blue.
