    Saw the title and thought mucky films.
    Then I realised that was something else entirely.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    If a man decorates a room and there is no woman there to check it, has it been done correctly?

    I saw the inspiration for this thread Pyx.
    My only deep thoughts at the moment are what to write on my shopping list. Maybe later I can inspire something meaningful later - Sorry.

    Getting back to the original question...

    Well, solitary bees and wasps make their solitary nest tubes near others of their species, so maybe loners would attend your social club (perhaps as a means of saving on heating or because their internet is down?), but sit on solo chairs around the sides of the room?

    One of my deep thoughts as a child was the belief that, when washing-up, water that had flowed across a sharp knife would itself in turn become "sharp" in some way and therefore you shouldn't let water flow off a knife and on to your hand (i.e. even though the knife itself didn't touch you, you could still get hurt).

    mmmmmm. That might work.

    Or perhaps little booths, like at voting stations, so we don't have to make eye contact?

    So, the club could have mini sub-clubs within it?
    Inspired!

    You mean, it could impart its sharpness into the water as a medium for conducting sharpness?

    Then, if you put a sharp knife under water with blunt knives, it could sharpen all the other knives?

    Very MSE!

    Sort of like a reversed polarity, you mean?

    But then, if that were the case, your fingers could have had a reverse effect on the sharp knife you were washing up? Making it soft and squidgy?

    I often have deep thoughts about the 'mariana trench'...

    Particularly when I am standing in the shallow end of my local swimming baths.
