Jj - think the boys are getting a bit smutty!

Anyway - most men are sprinters - very few could last the distance of anything more than a mad dash

Oh dear, IMM, you have laid yourself wide open to WW's claims of his superior endurance skills.

Back to inside legs...

This is relevant to Hercules! Look:

"A narrow 25m trench filled with water to the height of the inside leg. The contestants must wade back and forward throughout the day to gain the most distance."

Does that mean they each get their own trench?

Coz I might go 'glug' if I had to use Will's.

Sorry - yes i'm concentrating now

They would be awfully wrinkled either way

both ways, I would imagine. though if it's cold water they might - um - retract out of harm's way.

oh right!

We were back to legs, weren't we.

Sorry to bring the conversation back to inside legs, but I can add to the data here, confirming the short body/long leg theory for women. 5'4", 30" inside leg. Have happily shared jeans with my 5'8" bloke when I was a bit thinner.

But women's trousers are still *always* too long for me straight from the shop, unless it's M&S who do short, medium & long.

feeling decidedly stumpy here.
I think my measuring tape must have shrunk in the wash.

M&S - but they have changed their sizes cos I brought some long ones the other day and they dragged on the floor!

Jj - they are never out of harms way !!

Not 100% sure my inside leg is 32" Thats the length of trouser that seems to fit me best but theyre sometimes slung under my belly.

I'll go measure it.

I always thought women had longer legs / smaller bodies than men but maybe thats just becasue your perception is swayed as most women wear heels?

What about a comparisson of 'middle leg' measurements while were being smutty.
18/01/2004 at 18:12
Sorry, JJ. The legs might be a bit longer, but that only means that I have to fit all the tubby bits in a shorter body!

Darn my 12" ruler isnt long enough.

My inside leg is 32" - seems to be a popular length for men.

Didnt Kim Bassinger play a legless woman in a film some years ago ?

Do most women wear heels? Really? I have no idea myself, but I wear heels about twice a year, reluctantly (for posh dos) and only clumpy short ones at that.
