Nongregarious George ...Are you a loner? Most people know they're a loner without a quiz, but I was interested in seeing the slant of the results. Below is a quote from my result on the "Are You A Loner?" test. "Some people would call you independent, others might say you're anti-social. You don't go out of your way to be with people, and actually prefer your own company to that of others!" Note the exclamation mark...is wanting to be by yourself truly that amazing to those who don't? Why does the term 'loner' have such negative associations? Why, exactly, are non-loners so threatened by loners? Is it something like what dog trainers say? That the most impossible dog to train isn't the mean or stupid dog, but rather is the one that doesn't want anything?

"My name is Mike. ... I grew my hair from age 16 to age 35 without ever really getting a haircut other than a few trims. I reached what I believe was my terminal length of hair. At my longest my hair was almost to my ankles. My ex had long hair too almost to her waist. One day she decided to cut her hair and got a very short syled perm..." AND THEN...

Conservative attack ads have been playing extra dirty? The Ashley's Story ads, if they're not being shown in your market, show Bush comforting the daughter of a 9/11 victim. It's meant to be a serious tear-jerker. Ashlee's Story, on the other hand, points out that these ads are funded by the Progress for America Voter Fund, a conservative group behind a number of anti-Kerry attack ads. The donations raised by this play for people's emotions go to buy air time for other PFA ads. more inside
