Somewhere in Canberra is a grown woman who not only likes Miley Cyrus, but can’t spell it

I realise posting this might mean I never get a date again.

But some things need to be shared.

She also has interesting reading habits:

What’s Your opinion?

Are you sure she accessed this website with a computer?

Reason being that iPhones automatically spellcheck many words, and it this lady may be a victim of this.

iPhones – they’re their own punishment.

Ahh yes, welcome to the internet. Where the men are real men,and the women are real men, and the children are FBI agents……

Looks more like she’s typed the ad up quick on an iPhone or something and the auto-correct has bitten her.

Maybe this lady doesn’t have a computer.

Reason I say this is that I noticed that the spellchecker with my iPhone tried to change Miley to Myrie.

Don’t worry, Johnboy! Somewhere in Canberra is a beer drinking bikini model who rides freak bikes and wants nothing more than to make a genius happy. Girls, you know his email address! It’s on his website…

Forget the spelling – the fact that she likes Miley Cyrus and reads bibliographies tells you all you need to know.

Interestingly, I was just reading a report in Freakonomics about some research into game theory concerning dating sites.

For women, it turns out that it is better to be in the lower half of the ‘average’ group than the upper half. The reasoning is that women in the upper half of the average group attract the more interest from men than do women in the lower half. However this increased interest means that they are pestered by desperate men and genuinely interested ‘nice’ men are put off by the appearance of there being substantial competition for the lady in question.

The researchers argue that by promoting their flaws, instead of minimising them, women increase their chances of finding a Mr Right.

If you like a good bibliography, check out Leviathan: The Unauthorised Biography of Sydney by John Birmingham. Can’t remember how many pages the bibliography is off the top of my head – can anyone help?

Fixed it for you. In my defence I never claimed to be a fan.

That’s less a defence than a badge of honour. It was a real struggle for me to reveal that I knew how to spell it.

Its still wrong in the url, Mr “WordPress default namespaces are good enough for a news-site”.

I know that when *I* pick up a book I skip straight to the bibliography.
Can’t beat those pages and pages of references for a good read….

Bwahahahahaha! Thanks for sharing. 🙂 If anyone deserves to never get a date again it’s that person…
