I totally do not bring this up in the "look what the kooky foreigners are doing!" vein. I simply find superstitions interesting and wonder what you think. Anybody here or elsewhere could be guilty of developing unfair opinions for capricious reasons, but at least discimination over race and gender is supposed to be based on actual biology; judging a person by their blood type just seems way too arbitrary to me. If these type-B men are having such trouble dating, I can only imagine what it would be like if the personality types affected the realm of employment rather than the realm of romance, and a sizeable percentage of South Korea's male population couldn't get a job because their blood type says they're "likely to quit" or something. Weird.

While this does appeal to me, it's not really in line with Type A+ female behavior, is it? (AH HAHAHAH... fuck that "kooky foreigner" superstition -- get me a bungee cord!!!)

Well, now, not to date myself (OLD), but I remember when people were so bound to their horoscopes and similar things that they would not date certain signs. It seems equally kooky to me to do that!

People judge others by lots of weird attributes. Who can figure it all out.

Although, now it makes sense why a couple of video games I have list the blood types of the main characters! I thought the designers just had WAY too much time.

Oh, yeah, and I'm type A. HA!

Scott Hardie | April 20, 2005
Wow... You just made some sense out of video game manuals for me, Aaron. That "blood type" thing has baffled me for years, too.

John E Gunter | April 21, 2005
I am the warrior!

But Aaron, you are OLD! Embrace it I say, be proud of your age!

Oh and tying men to chairs, you two are kinky! ;-D

John

Amy Austin | April 21, 2005
Bullshit! If he's old, then that means *I'm* old... and I'm not! *You're* the old fogey here, John! ;-D

Aaron Shurtleff | April 21, 2005
Oh no you don't! You can't drag me down! I'm only as old as I feel...wait, that's no good.

John E Gunter | April 21, 2005
I don't like telling women their OLD, they don't like it, so you can't get me to go there Amy! ;-)

John

Amy Austin | April 21, 2005
HaHAAA... Aaron, I'm with ya' there!

John: So not only are you old, but wise, too... ;-)

John E Gunter | April 21, 2005
Well you know what they say, with age comes experience and wisdom! ;-D
