6. No. It's more personality that counts...
Edited on Sat Jul-17-04 02:23 PM by HypnoToad
A guy in a personals ad responded to me. He is ***HOT***. He also said that, apart from one immigrant that was an obvious hoax, I was the only one who'd responded to him and he had his ad up for a long time.

I also recall from a previous job an owner of a large insurance agency. He's a 5'7' 300 pound bald gargoyle porker. He had a wife, kids, everything.

It's not what you know or what you look like. It's who you know and/or how your personality is.

If I invested in companies I screamed "EXPLOITERS!" about, I'd have been a multimillionaire by now too.
