I think the real question here is: who are they going on dates with?

Mathematically, 6 pack abs + myspace angle = no real loss to society.
However, 6 pack abs + cute girl from the video store = goddamitsomuch.

Well...what if you drank a six-pack? That's practically the same thing, right?

Heh, I'm glad one of the pictures in the collage is the seriously-looking guy with a shirt off. Their profiles are goldmines.

At least they're less depressing than the list of 50 obese elderly women yahoo keeps sending me even though I told them to stop.

Man goes in the cage... cage goes in the thighs.

I'll never put on a lifejacket again. 1,100 men went into the thighs, 316 men came out.

Wow, that's interesting now that I read it. The ab shots and guys looking stupidly "mysterious" rank high. I will never understand women.


Oh, and Fark doesn't like big pictures, even linked, so the infamous myspace picture graph will have to be copy and pasted.

I don't have six-pack abs. I don't use "MySpace" angles. No wonder I'm still single.

I was on myspace, for a while, to keep up with family and friends before we all grew up and went to facebook. I posted this pic (uncropped)as my default, to show my nieces their old Aunt Jennifer still had it going on:

The number of horny, stupid guidos who assumed that I would be induced to have sex with them due to their "situations" was amazing.

FTFA In terms of getting new messages, the MySpace Shot is the single most effective photo type for women. We at first thought this was just because, typically, you can kind of see down the girl's shirt with the camera at that angle-indeed, that seems to be the point of shot in the first place-so we excluded all cleavage-showing shots from the pool and ran the numbers again. No change: it's still the best shot; better, in fact, than straight-up boob pics

WTF really?

I'm intrigued by the strange disease infecting the current generation of teenagers which makes their faces contort comically whenever confronted by a camera.

I forgot there still was a thing called myspace.

I bet all the people who still have myspace profiles are the Tila Tequila types, i.e. the trashiest most worthless members of our society.

So, being an AW who constantly takes pictures of yourself in the shiatter is today's equivalent of hotness? If I'm looking mysteriously at a green turd and take a snapshot of myself, will I be sexier?

Damn, that's nice. Congrats on not falling apart! Have lots of kids to spread those genes, OK? In the absence of serious life-extension technologies, the best I can hope for is sheer numbers of good genes...

Quantum Apostrophe: Have lots of kids to spread those genes, OK?

I can't. Which sucks, but we're ok with that. No stretch marks, and my boobs still point straight out. I would trade all of that for a couple of rug rats, but it isn't going to happen.

Rohasman: I don't suppose you could post the uncropped version here, just so we can turn this into a guido thread?

It was in my profile for a while. Something happened that was scary enough for me to pull my face pics.

Earguy You know this will come up in the discussion. Let's dive right in:

That happens fairly often, but I can understand why. No one is going to post the picture that their buddy took of them while they were passed out with their head in the toilet, puke everywhere. Going to post the most flattering pictures you can find, and if you have to crop out the jelly, so be it.

I gotta say, I felt like a failure when I read that men "met" about 60% of the women they first contacted. I thought they meant meet in real life, and my hit rate isn't nearly that high, but then I read their definition of "meet" and I felt a little better. I guess now I should post a picture of me scowling at something away from the camera....improve my odds.
