Kate Menzies is fast becoming my favourite fitness instructor, and it's all in the accent. :D

Some people probably have big heads and they do not want to discriminate against those people.

Why do hats have to be so expensive?
Sometimes I toy with the idea of wearing hats, but I'm not too good at figuring out what kind of hat would be appropriate with the kinds of clothes I typically wear.  Knowing that they are expensive just makes it less likely...

I usually only wear hats when I wear a suit. I think I'm going to get another bowler hat, but second-hand this time. When you buy them new they can cost €150-200. That's ridiculous.

It is strange that you say that.  I asked for a bowler hat for Christmas until I found out how much they cost.  I was quite shocked and changed my request to a smart looking wool fedora.  It looks rather dashing if I may say so myself.

Buy a flat cap. They are not that expensive and it's the most multi-function hat there is. Bowlers and fedoras should not be used with casual clothing whereas flat caps can be used in almost every situation and with every kind of clothing.

Bowlers on the other hand should be restricted to the inhabitans of British isles. :police:

Everyone will think that I'm either working class or hipster when I wear flat caps. Can't have that, Alpo.

Wear a Santa hat (but only for today). Then people won't think you're a hipster; they'll think you're crazy. That's probably better.

Fedora's look genuinely gangster.

Hmm...maybe it's a cultural difference, but fedoras on anyone under approximately 80 years old don't say "genuinely gangster" to me. They say...whatever this is:

^That's exactly why I haven't bought a fedora.

Cyrillic, you are a hipster. Just come out of the closet. Nothing wrong with working class attire either. It's rather nice actually if you do it old-fashioned way.

We need a thread about gays menswear. :police:

I go for more of a Blues Brothers look. Flat caps scream "CHIMNEYSWEEP!!!"

Forgive me if I don't take fashion advice from an individual who can't figure out what gender they are.
My Nikes have heels.
This comes as no surprise.  Are they two, three, or four inch?
Yeah I get about an extra 2 inches in height.

Careful...they'll wreak havoc with your arches and your hairy gastrocnemius muscles. ;D

Speaking of the gasgronemius. I had a severe muscle cramp or contraction that gave my such an intense pain. Sometimes I get it in my foot but it hasn't happened in 2 years. Any ideas why I had that spasm?

Magnesium deficiency, perhaps.  Depleted electrolytes, perhaps.  Wearing high-heeled Nike's?

I wonder if the Filioque quarrel could be solved just by popes and patriarchs going to sauna together. He who stands the heat longest could dictate whether the Holy Spirit proceeds also from the Son.

So, a Finnish bishop would be first among equals?  Makes as much sense as anything else! :D

We don't have a pope or a patriarch but I don't think many would object idea of Father Christmas as the highest hierarch. At least kids would love it.

Hey, I wouldn't mind; but the question is if he can stand in sauna the longest?  Fully vested?

Fedoras can engage in sexual activity?!?!?!?!
I never ask my hats if they're gay or straight. I figure it's not my business.
It is if you plan on putting them on your head.
Indeed!  Things could get rather raucous and uncomfortable "up there".  Just imagine what it might do to your hair!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:
