Default Snake oil viscosity index measured by women & cats

I will put my system up against any DIYA member's version with a simple test to determine which one takes the trophy...

!. Bring 5 females and 5 felines to our respective listening rooms.

2. Play their fave tunes (mercifully excluding Diana Krall and Mouse Death).

3. After 30 minutes, the member with more ambient organisms still present wins.

We could even put bets on the outcome....

John Curl can set the odds (if such conduct does not transgress his code of ethics) and SY (bonded & insured as a precaution) gets the cash stash until victoriously awarded.

Any takers ???

Wait a minute, if JC or SY are in the room, there will be zero organisms.

Hi,

Don't know about the cats, probably follow the women.
The interior decorator will win hands down with no system.

rgds, sreten.

I assume UK "hands down" = NA "bottoms down" ?

Well.. uh, no. Hands down is hands down.

We can discuss this via PM if you like, but I'm not sure a distinguished gentleman such as yourself would appreciate the connotations.

I have already planned for JC and SY being participants in this noble endeavor.

Two Old Spice Christmas grooming sets will be "re-gifted" by me, overnight Fed Exing to them a week before the sonic conflagration...

sreten, I actually had not planned on interior decorators among the contestants.

Cal, if you do start whipping up a meal, I will probably have to fall on my sword.

Hi,

PM is not as entertaining. I'm intrigued, "hands down" UK means
"sure fire" and "bottoms down" would draw a blank with a Brit.

By all means go PM if "hands down" is a salacious NA euphemism.

Better IMO to explain your meaning of "hands down"
which goes back to 1867 in the English language.

And explain "bottoms down", UK meaningless,
not like "bottoms up" when seriously imbibing

rgds, sreten.
