It's not the kind of pinkie that's suitable for display on a philosophy site and, although it is quite wrinkly, it does not have a print, as such. I do seem to think I've got an image somewhere that I did by resting the pinky on a photo copier, once. If I can find it I could PM it to you.

Heh. Reminds me of the film 'Filth', where the main character photocopies his member, hitting the 'enlarge' button several times to impress the ladies. :lol:

I am appalled at the direction this discussion has gone... and NO, I don't want to see any photos!

So am I. It's disgraceful how an innocent comment has been twisted into something so sordid.

Me too. I'm horrified that any sordid sentence could be twisted into something so innocent.

I wouldn't have shown it to you if I'd known you were going to tell the whole World about it.
I demand to see a picture of this ever so wise pinkie! And a fingerprint, for added measure. Otherwise, I'll have to assume the wisest pinkie is the Wikipedia one, pictured.

Very authoritative pinkie, that looks to me.
Why on earth do yanks call them 'pinkies'? They aren't even pink. Such childish people, like the creepy 'panties' for women's underwear.

Hey, don't knock 'panties'. I've invested many dirty thoughts revolving around that term. :lol:

Exactly. But I've noticed that American women like to talk like little girls their entire lives; 'all righty' 'yes indeedy'....Those who don't tend to be disliked or mistrusted.

Well, any woman who spoke like that would get a warm meal and a bus ticket home, out of sympathy.

Those aren't things that little girls say. Those are more "folksy" expressions for certain parts of the country.

What drives me crazy is the "high-pitched baby" tone that a lot of younger women use. Is that what you were referring to?
Maybe men like that -- I don't know. When I talk high-pitched to my male dogs, they do seem to get excited (if you know what I mean). But when I hear women talking that way naturally, I think, "Can't they hear themselves, and how silly that sounds?" It doesn't sound sexy... just childish.

I've only heard women saying it. It sounds like the way some people talk to children. It doesn't come across as 'folksy', (which would be rather nice).
As for young girls, perhaps they think that high-pitched screeching will have the same effect on male humans as on male dogs.
The funny thing about voices is that a beautiful voice can make a man incredibly sexy (think Richard Burton, Russell Crowe), but men don't seem to give a toss how awful a woman's voice is.

That must have taken you awhile. :lol: It's still gibberisth, even with a complete sentence.
Not really.

The introduction of “was” into the sentence also implies a creator of the referenced narrative.

If one has a bugaboo aversion about creation, the sentence can also be amended to:

Language can be as mindful or unmindful as perception, apprehension, and comprehension.

For instance, right now you are in language forum. Did you forget?

Philosophy of language. For instance, apologies in daily encounters with strangers are given due attention, which isn’t much. But when a blind one snarls take note, and give that a more than passing due because it is a tad unusual.

We do in the long run.

My old roomie answered the phone to a woman I was arranging 'time' with. After he handed the phone to me, she confessed a deep relief that his my voice was nothing like his. And she herself had a sexy, deep tone to hers.
