    That reminds me of a story that I heard once about a man that went in to buy a new suit. He found one that he liked and tried it on but the pants were too long. The shop propriator told him to grasp his crotch with one hand and hold them up a bit...there..that looks nice..
    He thought the sleeves were a little long so the propriator told him to pull them up a bit and hold his elbows against his ribs...that looks nice...
    he thought the shoulders were a bit to loose, so the propriator had him scrunch his neck...that looks very nice...
    So the man bought the suit and walked out of the store wearing it, holding his crotch, elbows tucked to his sides, neck scrunched and two guys walking down the side-walk watch him go by and one says something about that poor man, all bent up like that. The other man noticed how well his suit fit him.

    Sorry for the head-ache Broker, I just find that reasoning a mite syllogistic.
