Get yourself a bra that fits. This will cost you serious money - my boobs are 36G and used to be 36H. The brand I use is French called Prima Donna and the style I prefer is Deauville but there are lots of styles. If you can, I would go to a proper bra shop and get measured and fitted.

Why pay some guy to slice you up when a decently fitting bra will make you look slimmer and smaller instantly.

Wow, Umair. Beautifully written and judged, this is probably your best essay so far. Yes, love is the answer - but which love? The Ancient Greeks typically had 8 words that mean different kinds of love. Here's a reference.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_words_for_love

But which comes into your story? - probably all of them and so there's no need for my academic attitude. You are absolutely spot on.

You're getting better all the time and I'm waiting for that book you should be writing..

My goodness, what naive people you are.

The Republican party knows that the very best way to deal with Trump is to turn him into a martyr. They do that by getting him shot by some Gay/Mexican/Democrat, and after a couple of days in hospital with the crowds swelling around the place and people wailing, he will helpfully die (insulin injection?)

The scene at the MAGA funeral is full of grief and people flagellating themselves. One man stands at the coffins and gives a speech which electrifies everybody.

That man will become Trump's true heir and if America is unlucky enough, he'll be a competent and intelligent fascist and democracy will die.

You're absolutely right, Umair, and I'm enjoying your optimism.

Our worst problem with climate breakdown is that almost everybody thinks of it as a side issue. They think the important issues are politics or economics or Kardashians. No, they're not.

It's something to end the news with - the hippo who met a princess - not the headline, not the main part of the news.

It is absolutely the main issue. We have to STOP burning fossil fuels for energy right now and we have to sequester CO2 in every way we can, including regenerative agriculture. That should be the priority in people's minds.

It doesn't have to stay the priority because if we stave off climate collapse, we will have time for the New Deal as well.

But first we have to stop digging our hole. First we have to stop burning fossil fuels because everything comes from that.
