I agree. I'm very sorry for using such an offensive word. Vertically challenged people deserve better. Perhaps its because I was born in a country that had midget throwing contests and I became desensitized to the use of the word. But you are right. Humor at another's expense is not classy. And for the record I don't think Europeans don't have class. Just please excuse my warped sense of humor. I will use the term dwarf pole dancing chefs in future.

Sorry Chaya, wasn't going to say anything off topic yesterday
on your thread....however, BIG difference between the two....A dwarf person has a medical condition called dwarfism. This is caused by a genetic disorder. Hope you find this useful.


Dwarf vs Midget

Dwarf and midget are sometimes used synonymously. That is because these two terms refer to people that are vertically challenged. However, the terms dwarf and midget are not similar. They are totally different from each other. Here are some major differences between a dwarf and a midget.

First of all, you have to be careful when using these terms when referring to vertically challenged individuals. Midget is considered not politically correct and has derogatory connotation. Among the community of vertically challenged individuals, the term dwarf is not offensive.

In terms of physical characteristics, the term dwarf refers to very short individuals with disproportionate body. A dwarf could have a normal sized head but with very short arms and small hands. In contrast, a midget is an individual with very short stature but has proportional body. Because of these distinguishing characteristics, there is no associated problem with the growth of a midget while the growth of a dwarf can cause disability.

A dwarf person has a medical condition called dwarfism. This is caused by a genetic disorder. Meanwhile, a midget usually inherits the condition from his or her parents. It can also be caused by malnutrition.

Because dwarfism is a specific medical condition, a dwarf can suffer from lots of physical and health problems. It should be noted that a midget is a person in perfect health. A dwarf can suffer from malformed bones and joints, nerve compression, and possible disorientation of the organs. These conditions will not happen to midget people.

A dwarf can correct the condition through surgery. A procedure called limb lengthening surgery is usually performed. A midget can add more inches to his or her height by taking hormonal supplements and proper nutrition.

These are the characteristics that distinguish a dwarf from a midget. Do take note that the socially acceptable term for vertically challenged individuals is dwarf and not midget.

Re: Cost of changing out Ikea looking cabinets on a Lagoon

Some words (at least in arrogant context) are simply embarrassing in use:
  • Cheap
  • Class
  • Wrong
  • Won't
My class of people won't use such cheap language; it would be wrong.


(How easy it was to not actually say anything)

So since we are off topic. If a Goblin boarded your boat uninvited to play with your halyards do you have a right to attack him?

Sure... smack him with an Ikea end table! (See, back on topic!)

As a stereotypical American I would fire a warning shot first, then whack it with a custom finished end table ( never liked IKEA), then I would sue for boarding my boat without permission and playing with my halyards.:big grin:

I hope you are feeling better. Good luck with your cabinet project!

Actually rich people do shop for furniture at IKEA. It's how they stay rich...
Personally the dark cave like interiors many older boats have really put me off. Taiwan especially seems to have produced quite a few boats that are crimes against good taste. Why would anyone want to live in something that has the atmosphere of a cheap basement tavern.
No, give me light, airy, sunny every time. I don't have teak veneer on my walls at home, why would I wNt that on a boat?

Now that sounds like a fine thing to do. Just hope he's not one of those little people that wear those disappearing rings and live in a shire. Otherwise I could have a lot of his little friends storming my boat seeking revenge. I hear they know how to fight. Word is they can even kill dragons. So I would have to hit him good and hard with that piece of Ikea so he doesn't scamper off and collect his mates.

Yes. Rich people in Switzerland have to buy Ikea because that's all they can afford after paying all of their socialist taxes.
