Such a shame. It would cost you exactly one point. You, however, as a typical abusive male misogynist have just cost me about 50 points.
You think points matter? Do you have any idea how many people get their rep pumped up artificially or by cadre around here? Don't even begin to invest in that number. It's an illusion.

You have to do that with everyone you meet.
They may try to kiss you on the cheeks.
Just go with it and don't run away screaming and plunge your head into the nearest public fountain cause they'll think you're weird if you do that despite the high number of public fountains they have.
I always thought the fountains were there because they had a lot more water than they knew what to do with, what with their not drinking it or bathing frequently.

That one rocks. It rocks hard.

Tomorrow? More fun with neg reps and someone gets an upgrade from tan.

debate me. You're a typical liberal, attempting to silence the truth. I see your kind hourly.
Rather, she's illustrating the truth of your methodology and limitation. That seems fair, since you were doing it first. The liberal nonsense, associated with anna, just goes to your desperation, I suppose.

or

"Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read Well Enough To Succeed In College Or Life"
