And yet you persist in posting here as if you believe we care. There's a simple solution, ya know. See if you can figure it out.
Flames aside, a forum is a place for discussion, debate, comparing notes, possibly making friends, occasionally making enemies. If you are posting on a forum, you're either a troll, a megalomaniac, or you do care what other people think. Otherwise, why go to the effort?
Sorry I just find it really sad how hung up the average American is on looks, status, ego and what other people who don't matter in the grand scheme of things "think" about them.
Why does it matter to you what other people who have no impact or control over your life think of you, to me it screams of people with self confidence or mommy issues who are always looking for peer approval to feel better about themselves or justify their life somehow.
