So Sisly got a Blockbustermembership. There are othergirls, you know. You just setyour standards too high. My standards are not so high. AllI'm looking for is a cute, elf-likegirl who likes horror movies. Someone who will read me to sleepwith her adorable Icelandic accent. So you're just looking for Björk?

I don’t think my standards are too high. With the world’s population being what it is, certainly there is someone for me. Right?

Really.

Here’s a simple exercise. For the sake of argument, let’s assume the US population is 302 million. Women are roughly 51% of the population, so let’s work with a figure of 154 million. Below are my various standards, and the percentage of the population that would qualify.

  • Is 21-35 (10%)
  • Is elf-like (1%)
  • Likes dinosaurs (15%)
  • Likes horror movies (75%)
  • Likes Italian horror movies (20%)

That leaves me with almost 3500 people! My standards are just fine.

Now, you might argue that I didn’t take into account any availability or interest data, like marriage status or sexual orientation.

I don’t have to.

I’m hot.
