Big congrats on your first paycheck! It's definitely an accomplishment.

I don't think I've had anything other than direct deposit after the very first paycheck I got. Nowadays it's just like, "Is is there? Okay, time to pay bills."

(Because I am a boring person.)

That's a good question. I always thought it was for two reasons: one, so your clothing doesn't get sweaty or torn and you don't get tangled in it (given they didn't have sweatpants and sneakers in those days); and two, for the pure titillation of seeing a bunch of buff nude guys run around, wrestle with each other, etc.


This is correct. It was less titillation than like... well okay if you've ever accidentally walked into nude figure drawing class, the titillation of the artists is about what you'd expect from the people watching the running about folks.

A thing to remember is that Greece is a mediterranean country that's, like, super hot yo. The myth of Demeter and Persephone and Hades is often rendered that after Hades grabs Persephone, Demeter brings winter, but the actual myths read that she refused to shield the earth from the sun. So in the US, we're all like "oh that's why winter happens," but in Greece, they're like "oh that's why the really gross part of summer happens."

That is part of why they were so naked all the time. Because no one had invented lycra yet.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

My cousin (teaching pre-K) posts:
I have a kid in my class who has been taking down his pants, rubbing his ass on his classmates and yelling 'butt cheek! Butt cheek! BUTT CHHEEEEKKKSSS!' All morning.
