two friends of mine were sitting in French class, and as a part of an exercise, they had to write how five objects should be used... now these five objects were a bottle opener, a door (I think) and some other things, but more importantly, the last "Object" was the Eiffel Tower... NOW someone just passes a comment that it looks phallic... one thing leads to another, and finally, the conclusion that they reach is that you should never say yes to a man who proposes to you on the top of the Eiffel Tower... because he means to always have sex with you (where the FUCK did that come from?)
NOW, imagine some poor chap actually going through the trouble of arranging for a proposal on the top of the Eiffel Tower...
The story apparently did not end there… because then I asked her as to what places were OK for a marriage proposal… and as things turned out, anywhere in France was disqualified without it really being needed to be said, then the Taj Mahal was out because the story was tragic, the great wall of China was out because of the population thingy, the Niagra falls was out because it made you wet AND you had to wear those stupiud blue raincoats. Now there were very few options left, and anything above ground like the CN tower, the leaning tower of Pisa and the Qutub Minar were ruled out immediately… and then anything below the ground was ruled out too… like the grand canyon… which left us with: Beaches. That was probably a post Goa hangover, but beaches are apparently an ideal place, so are grasslands and deserts.
I wanted to contribute and come up with an original OK place, and I started with the surface of the moon or some weird planet outside Cygnus.
Disqualified because I needed a rocket to get there.
