      • mr.wiener

        Obviously for the free coffee.

    28% seems a bit generous for Brits…


    • 99% of that 28% are attractive women…Laoban’s “criteria”

        Only homosexual men find men attractive. Heterosexual men and all women consider men to look unappealing at best and repulsive at worst. A man who is well groomed, naturally well proportioned and in good physical condition can at best hope to be not ugly. If you don’t believe me, pick up a woman’s magazine and see if you can find anything but pretty girls in it.
