12/23/2002: Feet of swimmer Thorpe



You'd have to guess that, if you had flippers like this, you'd be a great swimmer. And you'd be right as these are the feet of world champ swimmer Ian Thorpe, an Aussie.

They're size 17.5 (American; 17 European).

But last January that caused a ruckus of some sort - not around here, but - apparently a TV reporter in Australia wondered jokingly whether, if he's got big feet, he's big elsewhere as well. The guy didn't like that much, and made a fuss about it, and the reporter wound up getting fired.

So apparently the answer to her question is yes; he's also got a massively overinflated sense of importance. And a sadly shrunken sense of humor.

I have size 14 feet [USA feets], and "Mr. Wang" is a respectibale, average size. He gets the job done, but of course he's only one part of the whole package.

Whitefish needs to calm down, and Newsreader ought to know better.

Er, the conversion you meant to do was 17.5 American = 16 UK. European shoe size would be somewhere in the 50s....

Ian Thorpe apparently was the subject of rumor-mongering about his being gay (he's <a href="http://www.twentyfourseven.com.au/index.php3?Issue=13&feat=45">not</a>). So perhaps that's where the sensitivity comes from.

This post sat for so long [no pun intended], I had to get it going somehow. I was trying to say something about there being no correlation between shoe size and penis size without sounding too clinical or giving out the 3d Studio mesh of Mr. Wang. [no I do not have a mesh!]

Ladies and Gentlemen...

Allow me to introduce my sweetie, Dagney!

She lives in central PA not too far from Harrisburg and only an hour from me.

I've been trying to get her onto here and to join our community for some time now and I've finally succeeded!

Give her a warm Cellar welcome.

Brian

Don't understand your post, maybe it's a language thing.

Why in this thread?

As I understand it, Dagney is Brian's significant other who lives in Pennsylvania, about 60-70 miles north of Baltimore. I think Brian was excited that she finally joined the Cellar, and since she posted here, he decided to throw it in this topic.

Brian, is that a fair assumption?

Leus, does that help? I can translate it into Spanish if necessary.

Welcome, Dagney.

Which demonstrates that Baltimore is the center of the universe? Wait till the Steelers disprove that (in keeping with the 'large footed' topic of this thread).
