7:38 - oh... my... goodness...

I feel dirty. It's like I need to scrub thoroughly to try and remove the filth from my skin.

Gah..

Just for kicks I thought I'd go cruising through a personals site, searching on females in Sacramento.
This was a *BIG* mistake.

The pictures were some of the worst quality I've seen in a long time. Bad poses and horrid lighting were the norm, enough so that the person in the picture had no hope of looking at all attractive. I realize I'm likely a little sensitive to that stuff, being that I'm practicing photography, but even all that aside these were still bad pictures.
That's not the worst of it, though. Those descriptions were unspeakably bad! This is going beyond bad grammar and poor spelling. The letters these people typed up to describe themselves have gone so far below bad quality I could feel my intellect seeping out through my eyes with every word I attempted to read. I can't belive these people are attempting to use this medium to attract a mate, and yet they don't bother to use any of the tools at their disposal to make themselves appear at least moderately desirable (as in, spellchecker).

I think I can now have an appreciation for how Mahdi feels reading my posts. :)

what personals were you looking through?

the general ones are kind of shitty, but the one's in springstreet networks (nerve.com/theonion.com/etc.) tend not to be.

I can't recall exactly which one it was.. I was just randomly clicking about and saw an add for some personals site, so I clicked and figured I'd run a search just to see what was turned up.
