We can all agree Samus tops anyone on that list.

Although Connery is a close second.

Two points

1. Sting is wearing Geordie cold weather gear and not underwear. To be honest he is little overdressed for Geordie in anything short of -20 C

2. I have to walk into pedants corner here. Ripley in that shot is preparing to go into cryosleep and thats why she is underwear.

goddammit Escapist, why did you have to remind me of Zardoz?

Can it really be called underwear if nobody ever wears it under anything?

Ahh that's deep. So basically underwear is not clothing but a concept that comes into being when other clothes a put on top. Never thought tidy whities would be a philosophical topic.

Always thought the saying was 'tighty whities' what with not being loose boxer shorts. I blame the Americans.

... Yes?

Can it really be said that you "understand" anything, even though you might not be standing under something? :P

Not quite the same root-word relevance, but come on!

By that logic a sweater becomes underwear when you put on a coat.

It's not just a matter of being covered. You can wear many layers of clothes and that doesn't make everything except the topmost underwear. Typically only the layer closest to the skin is underwear. But not everything that touches the skin is underwear. One criteria would be that it's worn next to the skin and not typically exposed. But there are no hard and fast rules. It's a bit like jazz and porn. Like jazz, you can't really explain it and like porn, you know it when you see it. That's how the author justified some of the never covered items in this list. They look like a duck and quack like a duck, therefor they must be underwear. (If you get my gist.)

That's Lilu Dallas Multipass to you!

(I think he knows)

It is kind of bugging me, but I'm pretty sure it is spelled Leeloo.

I double-checked to make sure I wasn't imagining a wrong spelling and it is short for Leeloominaï Lekatariba Lamina-Tchaï Ekbat De Sebat.

Ouch people. LILU ?

Try Leeloo, or Leeloominaï Lekatariba Lamina-Tchaï Ekbat De Sebat if you are feeling formal.
