A proposition is a proposition...
Where the aspect of one's demeanour is likened best to that of certain, less than prepossessing, Greek philosophers; I guess you are right. :rolleyes:

No, you based your claim that you would succeed in getting the 3rd biggest number of votes, on the fact you're good-looking.
In that case, I retract my claim, and blame the alcohol consumed that very night. I was being arrogant.

why would you want to prepossess Greek philisophers? Watch out... don't start using words like forte and spelling them wrong.

Well, I've been likened to Napoleon Bonaparte, who was known to have possessed an inch long penis. You're one up from me.

F.Y.I.

Watch out: I'd rather not find myself compelled to use words like 'egregious', either.

I know what prepossess means but in your sentence it seemed a bit like you were using prepossessing as a verb in a strange manner. I got it afterwards that you were using it as an adjective.

The hypen between less and than was confusing... shouldn't it have been less-than-prepossessing ?

At least six 'up', if that comparison has any foundation in reality.

(Sorry: I would appear to have left my inhibitions in the 'penis debate' thread.)

On reflection, the hyphenation was superfluous; although I fail to see how any alternative meaning could possibly be inferred, given its context.

I was wondering if you meant "instead of prepossessing" as in "instead of pleasing Greek philosophers". Nevermind. I got confused.
