1. Nice looking couple.
They look like they're ready for the Samba competition.

2. God, she is skinny!! She needs a sandwich
Unless of course, she has been ill. In which case, my apologies.

3. LOL- see I was going to say that, too, and then I thought "Would you say the...
...same thing if she were as overweight as she is skinny?" And I probably wouldn't have so I shut my mouth- at least till your response, heh heh. I actually am only attracted to heavier women. And I think Mrs. Weiner is very beautiful...elegant, even. Which is not my normal aesthetic reaction to women of her proportions.

7. I know, I hate to comment, but young women do starve themselves
to death, so when I see someone SO skinny, I just had to comment.

I actually just heard about the hacking story now. Her thinness has nothing to do with the story, I was not making that implications.

12. There's plenty of meat on her arm...
And her face is filled out. If she's skinny, that's how I like 'em. I'll pass on boney, gaunt and emaciated.

But I wonder if she's more Muslim than he is Jewish. :shrug:

And I wish them great happiness. :loveya:

20. Watch your mouth
some of us are born to be skinny. I was skinny as a rail most of my life, I'm now 63 years old and at 165 lbs at 6 foot 1
Me thinks you owe us an apology.

24. And most people are not born to be that skinny
I disagree, she doesn't have any meat on her arm, her waist is tiny, she looks like she is emaciated. Plus, she is an upper class woman, many of whom starve themselves to stay thin.

Not my business, but I was noticing and hoping young girls don't think they have to look like that.

4. Skinny, schminny; it's her clavicle and bustline that look odd in the photo.

5. Looks like a corset
Which always makes the bust-line a little odd looking. Super attractive couple though. :)

10. As a certified professional photographer I can say...
whoever posed them for that shot is an amateur.

But no one seems to want to pay for professional photographers who know posing and lighting these days.

13. There is only one thing that you absolutely must have to be a professional photographer...
Do you know what it is? :shrug:

15. What else could it be?
I usually just say "client."

I have taken photographs for money. Once you know the bills will be paid, anything is easily available. Including hiring a film student from the nearest university (who brings equipment.)

I'm puzzled about what certification there is. :shrug: (I'm occasionally astounded at my own ignorance too. :))

21. Professional Photographers of America...
It's a degree that is earned by demonstrating your knowledge of lighting, posing and composition as well as passing a difficult test of photographic knowledge.

23. I did not know that.
Looks like it's worth having, especially if they can give you referrals.

Did they ask you about the Scheimpflug principle? That's one of my favorites. :)

9. Arnold and Maria - nuff said
Although mind you, I am a firm believer that Rep Weiner's account was hacked.

However I'm also a firm believer that a 'hot wife' does not prevent the husband from straying.

16. Exactly, which is why it's annoying people assume if the spouse is beautiful there won't be cheating
Assuming makes fools of all of us.

But like I said earlier, I truly do believe this was a case of tampering with Rep Weiner.

18. Yup. *HATE* this "point" that people make and get pissed every time.
Edited on Tue May-31-11 03:03 PM by PeaceNikki
ETA, found my previous rant on this:

This kind of rationale always bothers me. I hear/see this type of comment all the time - mostly in regards to women. Like, would it be acceptable to shit all over an average looking woman? Are "beautiful people" always so fabulous in every other way that it would offset any awful personality trait they may have? I am not saying Sandra {Bullock} is ugly inside... by any stretch, I have no idea. But a person's physical appearance does not make them any more or less worthy of respect and fidelity.

This comparison of pure physical appearance and weighing of their "worthiness of being loved" happens all the time - again ESPECIALLY with women. It's the FIRST thing that people go to when there's a spouse who is cheated upon and/or left for.

25. So why would Weiner need to chase tail when he's got it all right there?
Edited on Tue May-31-11 04:55 PM by Cali_Democrat
Having a good looking wife makes Weiner less likely to flirt with and possibly have sex with other women.

I'm not sure if I necessarily agree with that, but that's how I understood the OP.

I don't look at either one of them and think they look particularly physically attractive.

Eye of the beholder.

but they both look like they could use a couple of chocolate milkshakes or boxes of Mallomars. Both look extremely thin.
