I only briefly have had a moustache when I was about 22.

I am saying I would not have a moustache. I prefer a beard.

Does that mean that when people see him they lose consciousness and fall over?

Request: please would you shrink the picture in post 21. It means the RHS buttons are half a mile scrolling right on my screen so it's harder to make a reply. Thanks.

See what happens when I have to scroll so far to make a reply. You sneak in with another in the gap.

Bob, could it be you?

No. I also would have a long commute. And I'm definitely retired! And I'd be teaching now so I wouldn't have time to chat on the forum.

Temporarily fixed.

Nope, it means a moustache that has been caused by fainting. (Somehow)

The fainting experience is not so awesome. It happens when you see a lot of Kaboobly Doo set theory.

What are set statements, by the way?

Got it. See over there for Nehushtan's and my proof.

He uses a different definition that comes to the same thing.
