Three bananas is about right for me.  I eat one a day, and if I buy three, the third is not overripe when I get around to it.

Is this knob too big?

Do we have a "That's what she said" thread?

Around this time of year my grandmother used to look out the scullery window and say that the little birds are putting their coats and hats on because it's getting cold. I've just had a look and all that can be seen is a seagull about the size of an ostrich. I wear a beanie/watchman's cap - black, no logo - when its cold (or when taking photos of people) however, it has developed a problem because it rides up my head until it's almost just balanced on top. That's especially annoying when I'm going for a run. The reason is the change in surface of my napper.

At some point between my early to mid 20s I started losing my hair and dealt with it by shaving my head, at first every two or three weeks then eventually once a week. A few ago months someone suggested I let it grow in. So for the first time in decades I have hair. About 90% of it is grey. Wow. Anyway, unprompted(!) I've had two different women run their fingers through it - I'd forgot what that felt like - and both asked if I was going to shave it again. If they thought it looked bad they would've said so. But apart from a few days of entertaining the idea of growing a beard to go along with it (I've never grown a beard/moustache before) I've plans to shave it off, if only because I imagine it's more of an intimidating look to huge mutant seagulls.
"You overestimate my power of attraction," he told her. "No, I don't," she replied sharply, "and neither do you".

It's to your credit that I wouldn't expect any other sort of reply from you. :) But this thing appeared to be like a practical effect from a deleted scene in Jurassic Park - and so if it comes down to it I wouldn't hesitate to get the first punch in. ;D

Aren't those units of measurement of global warning frequencies?

We are having civic elections tomorrow, an unusually large number of candidates including one for mayor who invites us to consider as a plus an interest in discovering if breathing through your nipples can result in their glowing in the dark.

? Both are units of distance and are neither fast nor slow.
