  • Fasten then zip or zip then fasten?

    In this time of waiting for news on a B5 project, political arguing and speculation disagreements, I think now is as good of a time as any to ask the age old question that's been going on for the past 10 years

    True story: I'm a fasten-zip man, but before I watched this B5 episode I was actually a zip-fasten. But then Babylon Squared got me to thinking... why *do* I zip-fasten? Why not fasten-zip? Maybe it's easier? Or better?

    So I tried it once and I've never gone back
    Fasten, then zip
    Zip, then fasten

          LOL - Now this is a funny thread.

          For me it's always been fasten then zip. It comes from a memory as a child when my best friend used to zip then fasten and got himself caught in the zip !! While we were all rolling about on the floor laughing, he was having his trousers delicately cut away by his mother in the other room. To this day when I mention it to him it brings back painful memories.

          A lesson to us all.

            I put on my socks first, then my pants.

              Too bad time didn't allow them to show the "unzip then unfasten, or unfasten then unzip" part of that conversation!
              I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station, when it is quiet, and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we are gone .. our voices will linger in these walls for as long as this place remains. But I will admit .. that the part of me that is going .. will very much miss the part of you that is staying.

                Meanwhile in another part of the universe Delenn and Ivanova are talking:

                Delenn: "Tell me Ivanova... Since I've undergone my... change... I've had to adjust to wearing human clothing. Much of it is simple, but I do not understand this encumbrance called a brasierre..."

                Ivanova: "Delenn!"

                Delenn: "But I had heard you had sex with aliens to secure a trade negotiation. Surely this question is not..."

                Ivanova: We're not having this conversation."

                Delenn: "But this is important... I can not walk around without a bra. Londo's been ignoring my face and looking at my chest..."

                Ivanova: "No."

                Delenn: frowns

                        Even if you use a button, it's still commonly called "fastening" your pants. (checks closet) In fact, NONE of my pants has an actual fastener. Even the suit pants use a button!

                          My point, RC, is that I don't have a zipper at all! My jeans fasten completely with buttons and there is no "zip" to my jeans.

                          Now, why are we all talking about my pants?
