Blinking and winking are not the same! Inviting someone to your cave while blinking will have a different result from inviting plus winking.

Blinking, winking, and what else? People overcomplicate things.

If blinking doesn't work, try "you... me... my cave or your cave?".
A better one is "what do you think of the monolog interior in Joyce's Ulysses?" It's an eye-opener. If that doesn't work, try the Virginia Woolf gambit.

If you look like Warren Buffet, nothing is going to work.

Nah, I like them raw - STFU and what you can do best. But then again, I'm a sample of one.
Sorry. I broke stream of consciousness?

Of subconsciousness - that's what every woman and every fat feminist really want, even if they don't realise it (I know what I'm saying, because I'm both). I suggest men reading this should follow the suggested method and report outcomes to us. We will use the data to optimise the technique. Trust me, I'm a statistician.

Heard on my way home: "We know what the market is doing now. It's bifurcating." :-)

How did it go? "To know is to know that you know nothing"?
