    "Quantum leap" - the SMALLEST leap possible.
    I stand by the occasional use of this phrase because it's quite a neat analogy. Since it just means a discrete jump from one state to another (as opposed to a continuous one), it describes a sudden step change in technology (as opposed to an organic one) quite well. Quite nerdy, though, when described in those terms. :o:

    EDIT: I liked 'new and improved', though. It never occurred to me how daft it is.

    I bottled it at the last moment! I thought that as the summer is passing, and the fact that I've already been on my holiday, I won't really get the chance to wear them somewhere without looking like a tit. Therefore I settled for some cream chinos instead.
    I see. Lesser of two evils, I suppose.

    Well the argument against that is that there's no such thing as gradual change, instead a gradual change is just a series of very small steps (i.e. quantum leaps). Ha.

    I'm just messing, wearing what you like is the best option.
    I would only suggest to you boring things like jeans and a shirt, or topman.

    Hah, very good indeed, and not entirely unforeseen. I can still hide behind Bohr's Correspondence Principle but, at the highest level of accuracy, I must yield in this one. Depends, really, how much QM you're comfortable having in your day-to-day life. :p:

    No I wasn't being sarcastic, really.

    when people put much on the end of a sentence.

    e.g. "wow, condescending much?"
    THAT!!! Argh it's the most annoying new phrase, possibly ever.

    "Jealous much?" - Shut the **** up.

    Thanks, I haven't actually got that many pairs of trousers or jeans so I probably will. So what sub-culture do you belong to (if you do, that is) when it comes to teenage fashion?
