I think I've seen someone write that before...
You should see my dinner sometimes... a loaf of bread and a pot of houmous. You can't go wrong!
We should get married or something.
Humus and pitta bread is really nice
Humus is disgusting.
Not surprised at all by the topic, attractive people have it easier in life, I don't think further evidence is needed on this subject. I remember seeing something once where they had people pretend to steal a bicycle, dudes and a plain looking woman had a hard time but an attractive woman was able to convince tons of dudes to help her steal the bike. Even when they KNEW she was stealing it, they were totally fine with helping her break the law. Dudes are dumb, we don't think with our brains all the time.
Discussion made a lot more amusing by the fact that "huumus" in Estonian means "topsoil".
Guilty as charged...
I dare to object. I don't see how manipulating men perpetuates ideas about "female inferiority". (Although I admit I didn't watch the video, is she in fact playing stupid to achieve her goal?).
If anything, the fact that reverse can also be true proves me right. I don't think Casanova has sparked any ideas about men being inferior.
Same here, pretty much: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humus
Hahaha, as long as you can offer me unlimited bread, houmus, halloumi and jelly babies - done
Too much bread is a bad thing.
hm, everything below what happens at brothel bars i have no problem with...
yeah, as in english and german. did you just now discover that the arabic food sounds the same?
I haven't really been in the position to give a sexy girl something she wants for free, but I'd probably not do it.
The real question is if the value of all the free crap she got was worth more than the cost of the makeup and fancy clothes.
Also, VR's comments. She's much more persistent in dolled up form. Maybe they were just giving her free stuff to shut her up.
Oh it's not that they're manipulating men in itself, it's that they do so by playing up existing male prejudices towards women. It delivers immediate results, but in the long run actually hurts their "cause" as women in general, which is ostensibly to achieve parity with men and abolish typical sexist prejudices.
Fine, but the halloumi stays on your side of the refrigerator.
No real surprise and she is reasonably attractive.
I didn't even know there was such an Arabic food before.
I've probably fallen for this, but it is something that I'm conscious of when socialising.
The fact Boundless has been able to derail the thread into a hummous conversation at will supports the theory.
Depends on how it's made. I've had really good humus. I prefer a nice restaurant quality steak or chicken francese with some wine, but good humus is a nice treat.
