Alok said...

Skin, Hair, Boobs, Bellies, Penises and Vulvas get so boring and bland after some time! (Try watching American Pie: The Naked Mile and you'll get what I'm talking about.)

Though Curves and Muscles are always welcome. Sadly, few own those.

Sam said...

ermm.. coz not all moments are the best moments!! ;)

gunj said...

to enhance pplz imaginations :P

Ghost Particle said...

coz we go no fur.

Ria said...

we wear clothes coz not everybody looks good wthout them!! :D

Macadamia The Nut said...

We 'wear' them because they're not edible :|
If they were (edible that is), we'd be eating them instead and wearing pizzas instead.

:|

:D How pathetic can I get anyway :D

Cinder-Single said...

CLOTHES? I guess to ummmmmmmm
Heck, Why do we wear them? LOL!!

Crimson Feet said...

In Japan, they have launched lingeries that can be charged with solar power, and they can then be used to charge small devices like cell phones and ipods. The ironic part is that the clothes in question need to be exposed to sunlight while they are put on.

So yes, some of us can, in the due course, safely say that we wear clothes so that we can charge our cellphones!

Male birds are known to sing melodious tunes in hopes of attracting female mating partners.

In the case of Homo sapiens, though, they practice regular expression of manliness by donning mildly impressive polymer-like substances commonly known as "clothes" in the community and thus attract partners.

However, females are known to express themselves more, than the opposite sex, using this manner of capturing attention. Although this kind of peculiar behavior from a species makes up for an interesting pair up between the males and the females, the homosapien community is known more for taking into consideration other factors such as emotions, mental compatibility before they end up in a biotic relationship.

Solitaire said...

@ Alok,

They do get boring?? So clothes bring in novelty? Interesting.

Solitaire said...

@ Sam,

Then we should technically be wearing them at the not so good moments I suppose?

Solitaire said...

With or without clothes, some people can do wonders with their fantasies.

rahul said...

actually it's a long story.Once upon a time there was a guy and girl(call them Adam and Eve or Obama and Hillary whatever)..they were living very happily in their pri-mordial environment, eating from trees, fresh meat by killing animals from clubs etc, they had a great relationship(intimate physical), with no obstructions, boundaries and all, then one day Eve(or Hillary) saw a beautiful tiger with strips and all , and begged, cajoled and threatened Obama to get him his skin.Hillary then wrapped the tiger's skin around her and felt good, then she told obama you have no "SHAME" put on something.

that is how, we started wearing clothes!!!!!

Solitaire said...

@ Ria,

so does that mean that those who look good without them should not wear them?

Solitaire said...

@ Macadamia,

You know that you can get edible underwear in adult stores?

Solitaire said...

@ cinder,

You tell me!

Solitaire said...

@ Crimson,

OMG! I thought you were making it up! Seriously, we are getting weirder day by day..mankind that is..

Solitaire said...

@ Anonymous,

I am going bonkers reading your comment! It looks like an in-depth analysis and an excerpt out of a dissertation or something!

Solitaire said...

@ D sinner,

Leaves ARE fashionable! Try wearing them...

Solitaire said...

@ Ceedy,

Mujhe kuch samjha nahi..not even Ankur's response to you.

Solitaire said...

@ Nirmal,

Do you think all gals look good without clothes? Tcch tcch..you are really blinded by the female sex.

Solitaire said...

@ Samby,

Exhibitionism always has had a negative connotation.

Solitaire said...

@ Rahul,

I LOVE your story!! Very creative...and hard hitting, in a funny way!

Nitin said...

So that there will be atleast some difference b/w human and animal

Ankur said...

@rahul

haha :P :P

funny it sounds :P

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@nitin

**So that there will be atleast some difference b/w human and animal

so which means if animals will start wearing clothes there will be no difference, eh?

:P
:P

r u tryin to emphasize the fact that we do have furs!!!
*ROFL
lolzzz

Cheers!!

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Your response to Nitin is soooo funny!!

Keshi said...

Sol it can be any kinda accidents...road or home. D u think I can cook w.o. burning my hands if my uncle/aunt walked naked in front of me?

And yes Sol, I wear my heart and lungs on my sleeve too lol!

Ankur-janam din mubarak ho dost...ye andar ki baat hai dost.
Solitare-Please read the other's comment...aur u want to know about matlab..it is software tool for image processing,statistical analysis etc....i think this is enough information for u...:D

Chakoli said...

Ahhh thast what if we have no reasons... better to remove themmm


;-))

g-man said...

@ sol: sorry for using this as a conversation window...

@ ankur: the birdie thing was a clever scheme to try to change the subject :P

Bubbles of FireWhiskey said...

because you dont want to see what some people look like naked... [:P] happy budday ankur (belated though it is)...

Nitin said...

No.. what I mean was other way...if human stops wearing it.. then it will be hard differentiate

D said...

Because beauty is not just skin deep!

vishesh said...

well the b'day wants to be in his b'day dress i guess..

seriously i like asking the question to people...the thing if we didn't "we will be rolling like animals" (my account master's quote,conveniently being used in the wrong sense)

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

Haha! That thought is funny!

Solitaire said...

@ Vishesh,

The birthday boy wanted everyone to be in their birthday suit on his birthday!!

Solitaire said...

@ D,

Haha. Conveniently used in the wrong sense.

Solitaire said...

@ Nitin,

I will let Ankur answer that.

Solitaire said...

@ Bubbles,

You don't? That's what Nirmal wants!

Solitaire said...

@ Chakoli,

What about the winter?

AmitL said...

I'm sure all nudists also ask this question,Solitaire.Tradition has ingrained upon our minds that clothes(Forming a part of roti,kapda aur makaan basics ) are a must, a necessity,both,as protection from the weather elements and for distinguishing ourselves from the rest of the world.

Another interesting theory I have is that clothes are like exteriors anywhere- they happily camouflage the interior,right from the tyres to the oranges to the bananas to the lemons..OMG..what did I just say?ROFL.Couldn't resist that quip.So,we like to wear these exteriors.

AmitL said...

Oops,I forgot-if we wear only leaves in a place like Baroda,the goats,cows and other menagerie which roam around the streets would have a merry time,gobbling them up alongwith some pvt parts..too scary!!!!Clothes it is.

Sam said...

ummm... not possible... technically u knw.. not at all!!

ceedy said...

@solitaire and ankur

ignore my response....the explanation will not be short....

if interested it is referencing to the book "ascent of man - dr. jacob bronowski" - where he dwells not only into clothing but many other facets that attribute to our evolution and our existence

I think I got carried away.

And about Ankurs response...will let him explain

Solitaire said...

@ Rakesh,

Still very confused!

Kanan said...

I think because others wear them. If no one wore them, then we wouldn't mind not wearing them.

Ankur said...

will reply to all in the evening... a lil busy with work :(

Cheers!!!

Rakesh said...

kya yaar u did not get my wordings...i just told not to embarrass others....thats all.

Crimson Feet said...

@ankur... thanks! :)

@ sol --- i was OK without the clarification on "we"

@ nut --- i was about to write EXACTLY the same thing, and then i realised, as you did too, that i was being pathetic ;).

Solitaire said...

@ Crimson,

You never know! These days everyone seems to be wearing their heart on their sleeve.

Ankur said...

@nirmal

most of the ppl do the same, u rnt above average then :P

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@coco

haha... hide from whom???

and to keep urself warm u can always stand on a gas burner too :P

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@Rakesh

thnx :)

nahi... yeh bahar ki baat hai :P

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@Chakoli

so whos stopping you ;)

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@g-man

oh... so u agree that u changed the subject.. is it :O

lolzz


Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@bubbles of firewhisky

Thnxxx :)

haha, so u wear them so tat others do wear... and then u look at someone whos doesnt look good without clothes and say... WOW

superb logic boss ;) ;)

:P

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@D

yep i agree, but then y do we hide it ?

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@vishesh

'his b'day dress':- did ya come with clothes on ;)
:P

hehe

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@amitl

so u dont believe u rnt a nudist??? is it...

surprised surprised!!!

well to distinguish urself with the world, there are a lot many other things one can do... but whether clothes can really do tat, i wonder!!!! :)

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@Amitl

dont tell me u not being a nudist still watch the private parts of animals...
:P :P

plzzz... get a brk ;)
lolzz


Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@sam

wats not possible??

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@Ceedy

hehe... bro i can read leangth :)

when r u explaning me :D :D

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@kanan

haha... so u an ardent follower of wat everyone do :P :P

Cheers!!!

Ankur said...

@Crimson feet

oh... u dont know how one sounds sarcastic :P :P

heheh

thnx neways ;)


Cheers!!!

Kanan said...

Ankur, no no not like that. I mean if people actually started not wearing anything, others will follow. It's like the society sets the trends you know and this one was set long back and no one has cared to change it. ;)

Until someone actually comes and changes it! :P

Ankur said...

@kanan

then be the one... start the trend... i will follow this time ;) :P

heheh

Cheers!!!

AmitL said...

LOL..Ankur,I guess u skipped reading some part of my comment:
*if we wear only leaves in a place like Baroda,the goats,cows and other menagerie which roam around the streets would have a merry time,gobbling them up alongwith some pvt parts..too scary!!!!*

What it means,in simple terms is,the menagerie roaming around the Baroda roads,would delightedly gobble up any leaves u're wearing,and,in their hurry,probably gobble up some pvt parts too!

As for me not being a nudist,well,not yet!ROFL-at least,not in public.

Stupidosaur said...

Arrey yaar agar hum log kapdey nahin pehnenge toh textile industry waley, desingners, darzi aur kapdey ki dukaan waaley roti aur makaan kaise kharidengey?

I tell you its all the conspiracy of the lobbyists. Just like tobacco industry.

Its all politics and the moolah because of which cigarattes and clothes haven't been banned everywhere yet ;)

ishqia said...

clothes are for protection.. not only physical, but sexual , and inner protection..

so we must choose good clothes that protects us, gives confidence
