Yes, well we all know Americans are anything but fancy. And as for 5"...well size isn't everything. You have to think of portability and control too. It can often be hard to get bigger scopes to where you want them to go. In my experience, if you know what you're doing, smaller scopes are just as good as bigger ones. [evil]
Yea, but a 5" scope has no "WOW" appeal.

If you tell a girl you have a 5" scope she probably isn't going to be interested in seeing how it works and you will not have the oppertunity to show her how skilled you are. On the other hand if you scope is named aricebo or NRAO very large array (or very large anything for that matter) you friend will probably be more interested in seeing what you can do with it. [evil]

My Uncle is a senior programmer for the NRAO VLA. Seeing the innuendo you guys attribute to that, it's no wonder my aunt acts the way she does [Embarrassed]

Oy, [Roll Eyes]

As any good spelunker knows, 5" is more than adequate for exploration. 5 1/4" being average, correct? And that's in the fully operational state. So anyone with an average (or even smaller than average, for that matter) *reflector* would be well served to learn how to get (and give) the most out of it.

Women I've known for a while, on the other hand:

A friend of mine works in an ice cream shop on Fridays. I visit her there after I leave work. Our standard greeting involves her taking a running leap into my arms and I carry her around for a while, or until new customers come in. Any customers already in the store just have to cope. It's not a date, but for a few minutes each week the rest of the world just disappears.

A few years ago, another friend of mine and I would curl up together on her couch and watch Mystery Science Theater 3000 each week. Sometimes, she would fall asleep on me, and I wouldn't move until she woke up. Again, we weren't romantically involved, but it was a really nice way to spend the time together.

As long as I could reach the remote control, it was. [Big Grin]

Poor Supaboy, all those superpowers and he still doesn't notice when I woman is in to him. [Big Grin] [Razz]

Silly, needs-to-be-hit-over-the-head-to-get-a-clue Supaboy.

Bah...while that might appear to be the case, it isn't always so. I can't speak for such giddy enthusiasm, but I have a female friend or two almost like that...and at least one is attached.

Methinks supa isn't an utter fool. [Wink]

I guess it's a good thing then that I may have the chance to get involved with the Square Kilometer Array project then. [Wink]

I dunno, I'd say Lois was the thick one of the pair.

   Glasses: Clark
   No-Glasses: Superman

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Okay, allow me to clarify: [Smile] JUMPING into a man's arms and letting him carry her around and/or falling asleep on him, IS, for most women, TELLING him.

Next time a woman hurls her body at you or uses you for a pillow, ASK HER OUT. [Big Grin]

If it happens in the next 14 months I will. After that I might get in trouble. [Razz]

For the love of all things non-religious...NO! [evil]
How's this then: If any girl threw themselves at me in the next fourteen months I'd ask them out. After that hopefully it's only one girl throwing herself at me... [Wink]

Silly, needs-to-be-hit-over-the-head-to-get-a-clue Supaboy.

The one who curled up with me on the couch to watch movies: there was kind of a triangle thing going on and the other leg of the triangle carried a huge torch for her. He was a friend of mine as well, so I chose the path that resulted in no bad blood.

The one who jumps into my arms, is smart, and is fantastically pretty, is also still a teenager.

So yeah, while I am cluless about the subtle stuff, I try hard to not do dumb things.

Saw Lamb of God last month and had a jolly good time [Smile]

Other than cracking skulls together, I like museum walks, playing video games (on the same team is better), going to the zoo, history museums (they're always only as fun as you make them!), camping, and road trips. I like doing things or going places where I can goof off and joke around and cause shananigans at (any place where you don't have to take life so seriously and can relax).

I don't know if anyone's said it yet, but every time I see the title of this thread, I think of "Miss Congeniality":

Stan Fields: Miss Rhode Island, please describe your idea of a perfect date.
Cheryl "Rhode Island": That's a tough one. I would have to say April 25th. Because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket.

I've been thinking the same, but I was so shy to comment... I didn't want the topic to detour.

Me and a few friends were discussing this the other day.

We were talking about how as soon as you turn 18 round where we live everyone asks if you want to go for a drink sometimes and I said that it just doesn't interest me and that guys would be better off saying:

"do you wanna come round and play video games?"

Required Apparatus:

1. smallish triangle pick
2. torsion wrench
3. deck chairs, glasses
4. a bottle of port of acceptable vintage
5. waterballoons
6. drunken students

Method:
1. Using 1. and 2. gain access through the service hatch on the top floor to the roof of Glen Eyre halls.
2. Arrange 3 appropriately, with a reasonable quantity of 4.
3. Drink 4 until 2.00am, observing how the distant concrete monstrosities on campus look suddenly beautiful in the light of the setting sun.
4. Shortly after 2am, 6. may be found staggering down the path.
5. Combine vigourously with 5. and possibly 4. for maximal entertainment value.

1. Dinner (jalepeno and pineapple pizza or nachos are optimal)
2. Fun activity (may include computer games (strategy), TV series/movies/cartoons, stargazing, hedgehog hunts (with a camera), or anything else that seems like a good idea at the time.)
*Optional: Alcoholic beverages
3. Comfortable location (couch, bed, kitchen floor) and snuggling/cuddling/talking/etc.
