“In your darkest hour” is a BS phrase. I like the dark. It’s quiet. Everybody leaves me alone. I need help in my brightest hour when my photo sensitivity is killing me and all these f*cking emails won’t stop coming. In my darkest hour I’m all good, thanks, go away.

I have far more fundamental questions, like - why did he identify her by her shoe?

I mean, was he a foot fetishist? They met, they talked, they danced . . . WTH was he looking at?

And also, even in a small kingdom, there must have been dozens to hundreds of girls with the same shoe size. . . . .

I call shenanigans.

Because it fitted. See below.

He was looking at her tits like any other guy and that was the only "souvenir" left behind. I'm assuming if she left her cacks behind she would have been a lot easier to sniff out.
And also, even in a small kingdom, there must have been dozens to hundreds of girls with the same shoe size. . . . .
Story says no.
I call shenanigans.
All those questions are nullified if there is no shoe. Why are you not addressing the core issue.

Well, if the above is the explanation on my question, then everything is clear for the shoe:

Why did she shoe stick around?

I recall, way back when the two first got married which justified her getting a Madame Tussaud figure, press people were trying to "measure her bum" to quote one of the more sophisticated rags from the Street of Fleet.

If "the story says so" is good enough for you, it's good enough for me. I'm egalitarian like that.

What I really want to know is - glass ?! Seems impractical and painful.

Like, it combines her being a masochist with him being a foot fetishist.

Not so. Because you added speculation on events as opposed to me reporting actual events.

"There must have been... "

There were not .The story reports that. You notrueskeptic.

Secondly, as the glass shoes were magicks they would have fitted the contours of Cinders' foot perfectly. How many people on the planet - let alone attending the odd ball here and there - have exactly the same shape, size and volume of foot material? And if you speculate again, you must provide the evidence by measuring the feet of everyone at the ball.

Not so clever now are you.

To be fair, what else is there to do here? We haven't heard from several core contributors in quite some time. Banter has gone to seed. And Politics has been reduced to a frothy mouthed mess of right wing idiots slinging snot from their noses while whining about nothing.

And then there are their Moms.

Pick up a copy of any law review that you see, and the first article is likely to be, you know, "The Influence of Immanuel Kant on Evidentiary Approaches in 18th-century Bulgaria," or something!

– Chief Justice John Roberts, June 25, 2011: Interview at Fourth
Circuit Court of Appeals Annual Conference:
in which he laments the disconnect between academia and law practice
Law professor Orin S. Kerr subsequently took that statement as "Challenge ACCEPTED!" and published the same-titled article in Greenbag, though it was not the first in that issue.
Spoiler:
CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS has drawn attention to the influence of Immanuel Kant on evidentiary approaches in 18th-century Bulgaria. No scholarship has analyzed Kant’s influence in that context. This Article fills the gap in the literature by exploring Kant’s influence on evidentiary approaches in 18th-century Bulgaria. It concludes that Kant’s influence, in all likelihood, was none.
Yet:
Spoiler:
This judgment has troubled me for years. Although I do not call into question Kerr’s meticulous historical research, I would propose the following Kantian thought experiment: What if Immanuel Kant had been an 18th-century Bulgarian law professor?

Some readers might object that my Kantian thought experiment is capricious or contrived. Be that as it may, thought experiments, especially improbable or outrageous ones, can be useful devices for detecting hidden anomalies and producing new or surprising insights.n any case, the leap of imagination required to conjure up an 18th-century Bulgarian Kant is no more implausible than a cat that is simultaneously dead and alive or a mischievous demon who manipulates microscopic molecules or an imaginary utility monster who gains an ungodly amount of pleasure from doing evil deeds.

F.E. Guerra-Pujol, "Kant on Evidence? A Hypothetical Reply to Kerr"

Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts!

If a "man is as honest as the day is long", does that mean he is more likely commit criminal acts in the winter.
