Martyrdom ain't fun unless you are dead
And being dead is something we dread
Be not afraid, young nova
The masquerade is over
Atheists are dead before they are dead

piggybacking on Rhub,
you two really gave me a chuckle as well. Thanks for the effort.

In the forest the fair young maid
Walked alone, quite unafraid
That the trees’ branching angle
Would her fair hair entangle
For she’d tied it up with a braid

DISCLAIMER - DISCREET

You are Rube, a thoughtful man as exemplified by your concern for fair unbraided hair entangled in a tree. The men I know are brutes. frown

As many people on this board know, my given name is Hilary.

This may, or may not, be relevant.

So where and when, Sir Hilery, does sex distinction determine relevancy?

Not in Mississippi. mad

Nor anywhere else in the civilised world, jj!
I merely comment on the fact that, given the distribution of my given name beteen the sexes, there is something like a 25:1 chance that I am a woman, not a man!

Ah ha! Rhubarb, you believe in "odds" therefor you are a mere man.
Let's play a game that had a curious run a few years back...

Ready? Ok; I've put 24 unsightly men and one breathtakingly beautiful woman (with a slight flaw} in 25 boxes marked #1 through #25. I ask you to pick the woman and you - being somewhat predictable- pick number 7.
Now I order all the men to climb out of their stupid box and go home except box #7 and box #8, this leaves one woman and one man in boxes # 7 and box #8.

"Do you wish to change your choice from 7 to 8?" I ask politely.

Should you? smile

If you ask me (which you didn't), I should say a lot depends on the nature of that "slight flaw" you mentioned. And there are few other assumptions you've left undenied but unverified...
