Ahem.
Relative to the measuring up: For every three inches of girth lost at the waist, for example, going from 44 to 36 inches, one gains two inches in length.

From Art of the Arousal
by Dr. Ruth Westheimer:

"Since ancient times, idealized figures, such as Apollo, had been given small genitals; large genitals were the attributes of brutes or satyrs.

Michelangelo's David restored sexuality to the beautiful man, with his muscular toroso, outsized limbs, and large genitals. "

It's not new to me. We younger people use it all the time. Razz Razz

Let's see, it means "take what I just said for you think it's worth." and it's usually appended onto a statement that might be construed as impolite or impolitic so as to defuse any rebuttal.

"I'm not sure if those Obama people smoke dope, but do seem to giggle a lot after lunch. I'm just saying!"

There are sometimes when I've heard a person using it as kind of a disclaimer of fact or truth, as in "This is what I've heard, I don't know if it's true or not, but think what you might think."

"He's married, but when he goes on long lunches with whatshername, he leaves his wedding ring on his mousepad. Just saying."

When we used to play "talk like a pirate" there was another phrase which would get stuck onto the end of sentences as a kind of what my mother would say meant "like it or lump it. Take it or leave it. Whatever."

It always sounded very seventeenth century.
"Arr, lads, if we'da listened to the first mate we wun't have ended up here. (pause) There it be."

@OmSigDAVID,
I think 'just sayin' means - that's just my opinion - take it for what you think it's worth.'
I saw Michaelangelo's David this past October. I went to Florence with my daughter who is an A-level art student and who informed me of the fact (because I'm NOT an A-level art student and never have been) that the reason that the statue of David was so reknown was because it achieved a perfect sense of proportion. Well, the minute I saw it, I thought to myself, 'His hands are HUGE and his you know what is tiny- and I didn't say anything but I thought to myself -' if he was into self-pleasure - that little thing would be lost in those hands'.... and that was even BEFORE he went to America and ate Big Macs.

I did however share these thoughts with a friend of mine and he said, 'Yeah - it's weird - because of the artist's specific sexual orientation you'd think he'd have emphasized that part of David's anatomy instead of de-emphsizing it. '

But he figured it had to do with religion and patrons, commissions, etc.

An art theory holds that David's outsized limbs and head relative to the rest of the torso were purposefully sculpted to allow a more balanced view of David from the perspective of a viewer from the ground looking up at the sculpture from a few feet away.

Thank u Joe; u r a very good teacher.
I remember kids in Arizona saying: "if u don 't like it, u can LUMP it!"
as meaning that, if u don t like it, u can go to hell,
or if u don 't like it, there 's nothing that u can DO about it.

Interesting. I thought the small penis size in classical sculpture depicted the uncircumcised member.

@plainoldme,
Just saying IS a weasel phrase.
(I deeply beg the pardon of all actuals weasels who are great creatures of the Universe.)
Let me try again.

It is a passive/aggressive form. "I'm saying something that is either controversial, uncomfortable or even rude but if I add 'just saying' I feel myself absolved. BUT it is usually used only amongst friends or by comedians for effect.

I don't think it's snotty. I think it's more wishy-washy which is still not the best conduct.

@OmSigDAVID,
To Dave : Who in their right mind trusts someone 'nough to let them cut bits off of their whizzer ?

To plainoldme : How can it be bigger if there is less of it ? Is this like cutting hair so it will grow ?

Joe:
TRUE or FALSE:
Use of the frase "just saying"
means "yada, yada, yada -- I 'm just SAYING that it is so,
that does not mean that it REALLY IS that way,
or
that does not mean that it REALLY IS true,
merely because I 'm saying that it is that way.
