When did workout wear for girls become going to the shops wear?

Yesterday at the shops with my Mum, the number of girls in workout gear.
Not just a few either..... bloody near all of 'em.
Some looked good, a few looked like stockings full of golf balls.....  a few of the bigger girls... phew...pretty bad.'

I think it was in the States a few days back/last week, some chick wanted to board a plane in a thong bikini.  ???

Most guys are pretty much ok i think, but why flaunt ya self, just in case, some creepy prick is around?

Yep!

Reminds me of being at the shops a few years back, & two young girls were there, both in bikinis with a towel over their shoulder, so probably just come from / on their way to, the beach.

Guessing these two were ~16, so a grown man isn't even supposed to be in the same shopping centre as them, let alone actually seeing them ::)

One of them was wearing a white bikini & she constantly kept playing with the bottom bit of it, I thought either deliberately, or maybe subconciously?, saying "Look at this".

Then they walked out, through the car-park, heading wherever.

C'mon girls, it takes nothing to pull a t-shirt on over the top, & take a bit of care, because as you said, there are some creepy pricks around, & you're deliberately making yourself a target! ::)

I don't have any expert knowledge, but given it's fine scales, uniform colour and dark tail, and being Cape York I'd hazard a guess at Coastal Tiapan, but they usually have a paler coloured head/nose to the rest of the body. Possibly a Myall (curl) snake if it has a darker hood? Browns in NQ tend to be a bit more motley coloured, but it's difficult to tell with the picture being a little blurred. Happy to be corrected though as I aint a snake expert, those are just my guestimates of what it could be.

Either way, don't make it cranky.

I reckon, from your pic, it's got the wrong shape head for a Taipan, actually it looks more like a Burton's legless lizard.

They come in a variety of colours from a plain brown, to striped and plain with specks.

But don't take my word for it and pick it up.  ;D

If it is a legless lizard, it won't have teeth like a snake, and it will have enlarged scales where the legs would normally be.

Yeah, you might be right there Troopy  :cup:
It does appear to have the open ear holes of a legless lizard. I didn't realize they live in open dry like that, just assumed they stayed near marshland and humus soils.

Thanks mate, that’s exactly what it was
At first I thought it may have been a juvenile taipan but the flat head didn’t seem right
But at the time I gave it the respect of a taipan I assure you  :cheers:
