SEINE, n. A kind of net for effecting an involuntary change of environment. For fish it is made strong and coarse, but women are more easily taken with a singularly delicate fabric weighted with small, cut stones.
The devil casting a seine of lace,(With precious stones 'twas weighted)Drew it into the landing placeAnd its contents calculated.All souls of women were in that sack —A draft miraculous, precious!But ere he could throw it across his backThey'd all escaped through the meshes.—Baruch de Loppis
2009 Update: A French river which separates the dissolute from the industrious Parisian- a distinction too speculative to be made along any other course.
I love your definition. So the people who live on the Right Bank are industrious and wonderful; and those who live on the Left Bank are lazy and dissolute? Isn't it always that way? :) Specutlatively speaking that is
The line that separates the dissolute from the industrious is growing ever thinner.
Now look at (some) peoples' hero, T**r W**ds.
For sure he was the kids idol.
It must be something in the water.

Seine: More US military to Afghanistan? Sounds of Vietnam if you ask me
Paris, the Seine, croissant, Sophie Marceau, Jean Reno and inspector Maigret. My French education. :)

I tell ya, Jim, the better-than-us ain't so hot, either.
Or the water itself, Nessa. Or would that be the Pregel?
Thom, I'm starting to think you're messing with me.
Ariel, you know more than I do. I didn't have Inspector Maigret.
Sure,Actonbell. There's Seine Language and Writin' Language.
