    Of course not. He doesn't look gay, or sounds gay. Not to me anyway.
    you know gay people don't have a flashing neon 'gay' sign above their heads. Well not usually. Though I am developing a gaydar to a certain extent, it doesn't extend to men and it's nothing to do with looks or sounds. I guess coming from the former home of gay pride (curse Hye Park for stealing it from us! It belongs in Clapham!!!) i've grown up knowing that nothing- be it your sexuality, race, creed, or background- has to dictate what sort of a person you are.

    I'd be really surprised if lex started to wear such sign. It's just that no one has ever told me that Fry is gay. My gaydar is bad, I mean really bad. Apart from the obvious, I'm useless at telling gay and straight apart.

    But they do add up to 2n. I'm sure my supervisored agreed with me on that one. But I just can't remember how that argument works now. You can draw this one out with small n's and you'll find that it always works.

    Your argument has assumed that the number of hands shaken by any couple add up to 2n. Otherwise, removing the couple which contains the maximum-hands-shaker, or the minimum-hands-shaker, does not guaranteed the removal of 2n handshakes.
    this is incorrect.....to recieve 2n+1 different answers implies that somebody shook no hands and somebody shook all possible hands (i.e. everybodies hand excluding their partner's). The only possible combination is that the person who shook everyone's hand was with the person who shook no hands (since they didnt shake hands with each other).

    lol i didn't mean that...

    it's just that since leaving london i've heard so many comments like: "nah, she's not gay, i saw her wearing a pretty skirt the other day.." or "he's not gay, he doesn't like kylie/steps/doris day/etc"

    but i wasn't saying that nobody else has a clue at all, sorry if i offended you in any way

    well clapham south is still as posh as northcote since it's all the area to the south of the common. Clapham common is midway to clapham junction and that's still posh, and all i've seen of clapham north is fancy parkside houses....so where exactly is the "dodgy bit"?

    well my dodgy bit is in clapham south just as you're heading towards streatham. Huge council estate near abbevile. There's another council estate in clapham common down the hill if you turn off by sainsbury's going down towards brixton.

    I can't see why "they don't shake hands with each other" implies that one shake all the hands, and the other shake 0 hand.

    I would say moderately so. Not in the Graham Norton league.
