I often wear socks made of nylon, but they're not ... and come in colors, and never extend higher than mid-calf.

Don't they make your feet sweat, stink, and itch? They do mine, I've had to wear 100% cotton socks for the past 50 years because of that.

Hear, hear! I hate nylon socks.

Let us not forget the introduction of L'eggs in 1969. A seminal event?

Ovular, I'd think.

Indeed. I have heard phonograph recordings of people speaking at the end of C19 and I understood them better than ... changes a hundred years? Two hundred? What should we do to those dastards who fail to stick to the script?

BRA - A shortened form of the word "brassiere", which I believe has it's roots in the French language, just like biscuit and mutton.

The strange thing is that in French a "brassière" is a kind of jacket (from French "bras", which means "arm"). It goes on your arms, and has nothing to do with breasts.
The device for supporting French breasts is called a "soutien-gorge", which literally means "supporting the throat".

In order to to communicate,a nd to understand the same English code, we all need to have the same understanding of the code words and syntax. If the "goalposts keep moving" then how are we supposed to decode it? I can see a need for new words or meanings, such as "byte", "nibble" and "multimedia based learning", but not changes in established words we already have. I still have a bicycle; I don't "hop on me bike", at least not since I left Yorkshire.

Pantyhose and tights aren't the same thing in my world. ... keep one's legs warm when one is wearing a skirt.

Indeed, that is a pondian difference. In the UK, nylons are stockings - there is one separate item per leg. ... they range from the sheerest rayon (never nylon, I think) to thick wooly items worn by four year old girls.

Transmat. It would be faster if the M6 (Toll) road had been open.

If you were wearing pantyhose and bra you would run that fast.
