Oh, your undergraduate degrees and post graduate degrees come from different schools, that's interesting (I didn't know that). Is that always the case?
I wonder if we have post graduate only schools here? I haven't heard of such a thing.

We term universities as tertiary school, after primary and college.
Do you guys consider master's degree to be a tertiary qualification or something beyond tertiary?

Yeah, seems America is a bit different to the rest of the world, It gets a bit confusing talking to Americans some times.
You guys are also strong on professional College teams, over here, people go to universities to get a degree rather than to get into professional sports.

Freud works in mysterious ways, as does Kinsey. All these "straight" responses, LOL.

You know, it's funny. I love to look at a beautiful woman....not in a sexual way, it's more to do with aesthetics of the female face. A really beautiful woman is an amazing thing to look at. Partly because physical human beauty is so fleeting. It's been proven that if a product has a beautiful woman on the cover or box or in the advertisement, more women will buy it. But I don't think it's because women consumers are lesbian or bi-sexual, I think it's just the beauty of the female face everyone is attracted to. Beauty is very powerful.

Kinda off topic.....sorry.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Well, to be fair, I'm also a pyrophiliac (not pyromaniac).
