What’s The Worst Pickup Line?
What’s the worst pick-up line you’ve ever heard? A survey by dating app Flirt Planet found that 95-percent of women said the line, “I like your dress but it would look better on my bedroom floor,” was the worst they’d ever heard. About 67% of women said the worst pick-up lines are “Your eyes are like spanners, everytime I look at them my nuts tighten” and “If I could rewrite the alphabet I would put ‘U’ and ‘I’ together.” Forty-four-percent of women surveyed said they’re prefer a simple “You have lovely eyes” compliment over a corny pick-up line, and about the same amount said they’d be happy if the guy simply offered to buy them a drink.

Barbie Designer: Body Size Not Meant To Be Realistic, Doesn’t Influence Girls
Mattel has sometimes been criticized over its iconic Barbie doll having unrealistic measurements — too skinny with too large breasts and a waist and hips that are too proportionately small. But the lead Barbie designer says in a new interview with Fast Company that the doll’s proportions aren’t meant to be realistic, and that those distorted measurements don’t influence girls’ body image. Barbie vice president of design Kim Culmone said the proportions are designed to make it easy for girls to dress and undress the dolls, explaining, “Barbie’s body was never meant to be realistic . . . Primarily it’s for function for the little girl, for real life fabrics to be able to be turned and sewn, and have the outfit still fall properly on her body.” Dismissing the body image criticism, Sulmone said, “Girls view the world completely differently than grown-ups do. They don’t come at it with the same angles and baggage and all that stuff that we do. Clearly, the influences for girls on those types of issues, whether it’s body image or anything else, it’s proven, it’s peers, moms, parents, it’s their social circles.”
