"Have always thought of cussing as being something very familiar; like it should be done only with people you know well. I never cuss in front of someone who hasn't cussed first - especially if it's a woman. Also have never used the…"

"Hear, hear. Have said this for years. European schools with far more recess and far less testing, like Finland, turn out underemployed, booze-raddled adults who can quote Tolstoy and Shakespeare. That said - I'm for assisted suicide. Why not?…"

Dann Anthony replied to Peter O'Reilly's discussion What Is The Most Significant Obstacle To Human Progress?
"Tribalism. A blank, unholy refusal to listen to or empathize with one another. At every level of our lives and government. It's the same the world over. "

Dann Anthony replied to Peter O'Reilly's discussion Are You Afraid To Die?
"Those all sound pretty cool. And perilous. I was never such a daredevil. Guess if I was going to pick my own murder, I'd rather get it from a tribesman on the savanna than a gangbanger, home invader or mugger."

"Closest I came to a clear-and-present-danger death was in Kenya, when someone was going to club me to death for my camera equipment. Was late at night, I was the only one awake on the Savanna. Leukemia doesn't terrify me; that potential death…"

Dann Anthony replied to Hyrum's discussion Asking For a Date Via Facebook Message
"Nothing wrong with putting your best foot forward. It's one thing to suppress your identity to impress someone, quite another to, e.g., dress up more than you usually do, cuss less than you usually do, talk about something other than your…"

Dann Anthony replied to Dustin Wilson's discussion Belts or Suspenders?
"Which is why I never wear short pants. They're a sign of oppression to me. In British boys' school, you first got long trousers at age 12. It could be below freezing outside - we wore short pants. Yes, there were just a few inches between…"

"Sounds like he was trying to emulate Atticus Finch in "To Kill a Mockingbird," who wore just that outfit. Also sounds like the guy wasn't Gregory Peck, by a long shot."

Dann Anthony replied to Dustin Wilson's discussion Belts or Suspenders?
"I couldn't agree less about suspenders. Bow-ties, yeah - they look eccentric. Yet a few stalwarts insist upon them. What looks best on us is what we feel comfortable wearing. I always feel like a schoolboy wearing a ball-cap, and an adult…"

"Leather suspenders don't have the give of nylon, but I prefer them. Maybe from seeing cowboy and historic flicks, when nylon wasn't available; leather feels more rugged and durable. A wide, rugged pair with snap clips isn't as…"
