Indeed, and [getting back on my soapbox] the first one is not to expect anything more than a 'f*ck 'n chuck' from a blind date with a complete stranger.

I.e all these promises of 'true love' via internet dating, or 'lonely hearts' ads are exploitative nonsense. You will never grow to respect a person, who paid to find a complete stranger on the promise of there being some future in it.

So, take on board that myth as a polite veneer of respectability, and go for it if one night stands are you current thing. Having unburdened yourself from the mythical high expectations you might find it rather fun, a sort of respectable free sex club [apparently].

I don't know how desperate you'd have to be to settle down and start a family with a stranger off the internet. Really! :o


p.s. I have an old friend who friends set up with a partner to go to a university ball. In some ways that was a blind date. They're now long married, children, etc...

The difference there was the friends used their first hand knowledge of both people, plus their characters, backgrounds, styles etc. to see the potential in it. Sort of like an arranged marriage, but if it were orchestrated by your closest friends rather than your parents :lol:

Saw it in College Humor: Tinderella: A Modern Fairy Tale

Don't worry, it is just SFW. And who could think of any harm from a Disney's Cinderella?

I'm actually impressed by Pyongyang. But I guess the claims that poverty is hidden behind a literal façade of grandeur apply to villages and towns outside Pyongyang.

I was impressed by Havana too. Well initially; it didn't take long to scratch the surface and see something of the actual state of affairs festering just below.

80's communist Saigon was quite impressive too (though in a rather dusty/threadbare way), at least the bits your 24/7 government escort allowed you to see.

'This is Paradise! is a shocking and moving portrayal of scenes of every day life in North Korea, a secretive and brutal nation. Hyok Kang writes of the public executions, the labor camps and mines, the punishment for "anti-social behavior," the secret watching of Beijing television, and the spies everywhere who help enforce the regime. When the famine comes, so does death by starvation of friends and close ones, cannibalism, and political purge. All this is normal for Hyok Kang. After all, the propaganda North Koreans are fed by their government insists that compared to the rest of the world, this is paradise! Woven into this portrayal is the individual story of a young boy and his migration to China as an asylum seeker. This is his story of suffering and survival, and is a rare glimpse of a nation closed to the outside world.

A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him, 'Father, I have a problem.
I have two female parrots,
But they only know to say one thing.'
'What do they say?' the priest asked.
They say, 'Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?'
'That's obscene!' the priest exclaimed,
Then he thought for a moment......

'You know,' he said, 'I may have a solution to your problem. I have two male talking parrots, which I have taught to pray and read the Bible...
Bring your two parrots over to my house, and we'll put them in the cage with Francis and Peter. My parrots can teach your parrots to pray and worship,
And your parrots are sure to stop saying that phrase in no time.'
'Thank you,' the woman responded, 'this may very well be the solution.'

The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest's house....
As he ushered her in, she saw that his two male parrots were inside their cage holding rosary beads and praying...
Impressed, she walked over and placed her parrots in with them...
After a few minutes, the female parrots cried out in unison:
Hi, we're hookers! Do you want to have some fun?'

There was stunned silence...
Shocked, one male parrot looked over at the other male parrot and says,

'Put the beads away, Frank,
Our prayers have been answered!
Be careful what you wish for
