RE: Government Conspiracy?

Postby Datadog » Wed 03.23.2005 2:48 pm

Strange thing is, I haven't seen a single unattractive person on that site yet. It's almost like when you get a profile, they secretly put you in a special folder that keeps certain people from appearing on the front page, thus improving their chances of making money. That makes me wonder which folder I'm in.

On a completely unrelated note, I just had one of those weird experiences where my mind almost hit a state of perfect enlightenment. I was studying the Japanese words for the days of the week when "I Think I'm Turning Japanese" by the Vapors suddenly came on the radio.

No, changing the topic isn't my way of ignoring anybody. I just thought it was really cool and wanted to share it. Back to the discussion.

Hmm... Ive seen a few not-so-attractive girls on there. One of them had a pic of her with a bathtowel on her head and exfoliating scrub on her face. I was like whats up with that??

Yeah, I just noticed they start popping up when you do searches. But otherwise, they always pick their favorites to appear at random on the front page to the right.

No you can sign up for free, but then they want 25$ to join their "vip" part so you can send and recieve mails... So all you can do is look at pics and send those pointless smiles. lol

Exfoliating scrub? *Shudder* Ooooh (I know this has nothing to do with the point) I got some clay mask stuff and for the first time in my life, I had a green face!:D
(It's avacodo and oatmeal, tee hee). I haven't joined the Friends Page (school computer).

On to my long awaited point, that's a good point about the picking and choosing the pictures. Wonder how they do it *ponders off*

All you need to do to put up a page is have an e-mail address - unless your school monitors that kind of activity. I know mine did.

As for pictures, I can never help but wonder where all those submitted pictures go and whose hard drive they end up getting collected onto. Then again, someone else can just Right-Click "Save Image As" - so my guess could be potentially everyone's hard drive.

RE: I'm a member

Postby arcaniis » Tue 03.29.2005 3:34 pm

Yea, I'm a member of the "Friends!" area but I havent like paid for anything. Usually I just search for those people out there that have that open accnt. thing where u can send to them even if ur not VIP. But yea I imagine a good amount of people that are on this site are also on the friends site so we could easily just exchange e-mails here to talk if we ever wanted. Like mine is: Arkanus0102@yahoo.com. Fell free to email any time b/c I get bored easily so I luv to talk ^_^. Anyways I'll cya all around.

I thought you had to be 18 years old to set up a Friends! account.

I'm sure they mean college Daisuke, those crazy amerika-jin ;)

EDIT: Sorry if I got that wrong Jess, just noticed that you mentioned elsewhere about uniforms.

Some americans I worked with a couple of years ago confused me all the time, asking how school was going. "But I left school two years ago, I'm at university... oh, I see... "

How about we set up a thread here thats a Friends! page? ^_^ You could post a pic if you want. Your age, location, sex/gender, stuff like that... if Clay dont mind that is.

As for people confusing Cabbage, Im not sure how they can confuse one asian for another, its not like you all look the same...
