QuoteOriginally posted by: UltravioletSometimes I could kill for chocolate. (I'm a very fat woman.)I live in a chocolate republic. I hardly eat chocolate. Even in months or during the whole year I do not try chocolate even though we are supposed to have one of the best chocolate / cacao in S.A. Here, chocolate is every where, in all meals all the time. There are very strange dishes like meat with chocolate, soup of chocolate, ice creams, etc. etc. I am fed up of chocolate.

You might want to look for a dude born on 27 Jan '82 instead.

You might want to look for a dude born on 27 Jan '82 instead.I already thought about it and this form would be an advantage in the UK, as the police would not catch on so quickly to the "Chocolate Pie/Pi Killer".I could not decide if it should always be in the 3.xy (Rolling through the sequence), form or maybe it should move entirely e.g 3.14, 1.5,...

QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperMale Jurors More Likely To Find Overweight Women GuiltyMy theory: Omitted variable bias.1. If not the result of an actual illness fat people are fat because they have no self-control or simply stopped caring. In both cases I wouldn't be too surprised if their general appearance was lacking: Haircut overdue sind weeks, clothes not pressed etc. So maybe they reason the jurors don't like them is not them being "fat" but simply them presenting them really unfavorable.2. Obesity might be a signal for "less education" or "less income". Probably if you live in a very urban (read ghetto) neighborhood chances that you are fat are higher. Also chances that you are criminal are higher, or maybe chances that you end up prosecuted are higher. Potentially that's what juror mix up.

Where have you been?3 weeks holiday. no internet. pretty cool actually =)By the way, when it comes to chocolate I recommend "Confiserie Sprüngli". They are -by far- the best, even better than Godiva. Not to be confused with the unrelated "Lindt & Sprüngli" who are also doing chocolate, but of much lower quality.
