Judging the Book by it's Cover
    #2120435 - 11/18/03 06:20 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

We all KNOW this is wrong.
But... is it?


I mean, sure... a snapshot tells us very little. But what about 5 minutes with the person? What about 30 seconds?

Here's an exercise:
Which is more of a corporate whore?
A.___________________________OR_______________B.



Experience-based probabilities are often quite accurate.
However, I admit, there are times when it is hard to tell.

For example, which of these two people is more dangerous?
A._____________________OR________B.

Is there a prize for the most correct answers?

I think I would rather "do" Britney than Diane; although that might be a tough call. You have youthful exuberance vs. middle-aged angst (which when channeled, can be a good thing!).

The proof is in the pudding.

I would have to go with britney. I don't like her, but diane is dead man.

I see what everyone is saying. It is so hard to form an opinion when you see both sides so clearly!

Uh.... sure... there IS a prize.
However, I must charge a handling fee (sadly). Luckily, the handling fee is only an eighth of potent dank.

Dead angst is even more potent than middle-aged desperation. The dead are sometimes more willing than a live one and rarely get headaches.
