The FREAKest Links: Darwin Can’t Lie Edition

Here’s a twist in our discussion of specialized online dating: a 26-year-old Australian ad salesman has created a tongue-in-cheek site meant to “weed out” the “ugly, unattractive, desperate fatsos.” Called Darwin Dating, it has since gained popularity and led to several happy matches.

Craigslist posters are selling their time this week by offering to stand in line to buy iPhones — with prices quickly matching the price tag of the phone itself.

The AP has an update on the American Medical Association’s decision concerning the validity of Video Game Addiction. The verdict? Not until more research is performed. Or until WarCraft IV comes out.

    interesting that they vetoed a limitation on decibel levels for in-ear headphones- thereby allowing for noise levels equivalent to a “chainsaw”!?- there must be some pantera fans on the AMA board

    Here’s a similar dating site, but not tongue-in-cheek:

    http://us.beautifulpeople.net/Frontpage.asp
    (requires Internet Explorer…do beautiful people not use Firefox?)

    And, also unlike Darwin Dating, if you don’t get in, you can resubmit with, say, a better photo, a fitter body, a nicer car, or breast implants. (One Danish woman finally got accepted after 50 attempts and 3 years of working out.)

    I can only imagine that the specialized online dating can only help the dating world. Especially because of the constant increase of online dating. Presumably people who are similar will opt to choose similar dating sites and thus improving their matches.

    I’m only curious whether my pet mouse would be considered beautiful or heinous as she seems like she could fancy a mate.

    An extra advantage of this dating site is that it allows people to screen out narcissists by simply avoiding the site.
