We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Samizdata quote of the day

If you don’t like what the label on your clothes says – the size or the brand name – cut it off.
(From a beauty book or a women’s magazine, I forget which. Sublime wisdom, whatever the source.)

    And then send the label to your favorite anti-globo and tell them how much you enjoy the [insert brand name] product you just purchased. :-)

  • Your idea is a good one, but I was more thinking that because you own your nice but cheapo swimsuit in a slightly bigger size than you care to admit, you can do what you like with it.

    However I have belatedly realised that this is mere first level play. Remember the chap in Lifemanship who swaps the labels on his wine bottles before a dinner party? Beginners put expensive labels on cheap wine, which is an allowable but mediocre gambit. The true master puts cheapo labels on wonderful wine then hints that he, with his educated taste, has himself spotted the unsuspected quality of this humble vintage.
