Man buns? Yay? Nay? Any exceptions?

I'm not a huge fan of them, I think a straight up ponytail looks much better. Man buns do look cool if you're a Samurai from the 14th century though.

Ed Hunter asked 1 day ago have you seen this?

Bruce Springsteen has been fined $500 for DUI. Should there be a sliding scale for fines (like in Switzerland) where the richer you are the more you pay? Is that fairer? Unfair? Tell me.

I think it's fair but to be fair to him - he did have to Drive All Night. I guess he got stopped by a Highway Patrolman or State Trooper? Was it a Stolen Car? Maybe Racing in the Street?

Is a person with a high social status more attractive to you?

Would you be okay if a person that you hate gives you all the money in the world, makes you filthy rich and without any strings attached or are you too "proud" for that?
