Chicago dive bar scores hit with nude Sarah Palin portrait
There is so much WTF in that article I don't even know where to start.
Question of the Day
11 hours ago
I had just finished shopping and was about to put my bags into the trunk of my car when an older fellow walked up to me. I estimate his age around 50, given that he had a full head of blindingly white hair but no difficulty walking and fewer wrinkles than I typically expect an older person would have. I would hesitate to put him at younger than 45, and also at older than 70. So... A large range, I know, but it puts him, at minimum, 25 years older than me.
"Miss, I'm sorry, but I saw you in the store and I just thought to myself that I had to say something. I thought you were just so pretty I just had to ask you if you would have dinner with me."
Quite dumbfounded, I respond, literally, by saying, "I'm sorry, what?"
"I know you are quite young, but I live alone and I was just thinking I didn't want to eat alone tonight, and you were so pretty..."
Thoughts flood my head on how I can possibly respond to this, but I say, "I'm... I'm really sorry, but I'm just not comfortable with that."
"Well, I just thought that perhaps we could share insights between generations..."
"I'm sorry, but no, I can't."
[insert a long monologue on his part explaining where he lives; that he attended some classes at my college; that he likes my peace sign earrings - to which I respond, in my most forceful answer, that I wear them because my fiancé is in Afghanistan and so peace is very important to me]
"Perhaps some other time?"
"I'm sorry, no."
"Well maybe I could get your - "
"No, I don't think..."
"Oh, right! Could I give you my number, and you could call me sometime?"
"No, really, I'm just... I'm sorry, but..."
And he walks away. I put my bags in the trunk, get in the car, lock the doors and start to tear up.
Moxon, who carried out the research for insurance outfit Hiscox (yes, we know), said: "We saw significant peaks, particularly in women. The roar of a luxury car engine does cause a primeval physiological response."
