Along those same lines, I suggest you never have a desert for dessert. Although sand and sugar may look similar, they don't taste anything close to alike. By the same token, there's a difference between deserting someone and desserting them! (I know technically desserting isn't a word, but you get the idea.)

The SEXXX EDUCATION discussion topic should be moved to the Recreation and Entertainment section. I can see why shadylady put it in the Local News section, but I think it would make more sense to move it. That's just my opinion. Take it for what it's worth.

crustyoldfart: To be honest, I actually considered starting the thread in Recreation and Entertainment, but since Local News has so many threads related to education I decided that would be the best place to put it. A serious discussion with a few joke posts here and there is what I hoped for. If I put it in the Rec/Entertainment forum then most likely more jokes and less serious discussion would be the result. Honestly, my feelings won't be hurt if the thread gets moved, but I think the chances of a meaningful dialog are increased by leaving it where it is.

shadylady: Although crustyoldfart makes a good point and you even agree that his suggestion is not unreasonable, cactuspete and I decided to leave the thread where it is. Since the word "education" is in the title it makes sense to keep it with the other threads pertaining to that same topic. Also if we put it in the Recreation and Entertainment thread the implication is that it's supposed to be a fun, as opposed to serious, discussion. So, although it will attract a few silly posts, those posts will keep things lively and so that doesn't seem like a serious issue unless someone gets blatantly offensive, which is seldom an issue on this site.
