Too true. He was such a busy man. I purposely left out the wives. Initially I had them written in, but the story was far too long and I needed to edit it down. Given that he was a sociopath and they meant nothing more to him than a live bankroll to deceive and keep at bay, I deleted those paragraphs.

The behind the scenes page is the one that proves they are photos. :)
Also, in the photos above, you can kind of tell by the toes, too, I think.
Mhm, nice body.

We've disagreed on movies once before. We obviously have different tastes (in comedy, at least, which is what we disagreed on last time). I stand by what I said about the "love or hate" thing, as I've seen the film evoke extreme reactions from people, particularly the female population. While many males I know (and some females) love it. Obviously I'm not speaking for the world, I'm making a generalization.

While I certainly don't think it's some cinematic masterpiece nor is it even a favorite of mine, I think it definitely has redeeming factors: John Ritter's last performance, for one. Bernie Mac would be another, and I like the kid too. I think the film provides comic relief for some people who are unable to relate to your average, saccharine Christmas movie (although that's just my guess). AND, I think the facts about the Cohen brothers were interesting and not "obvious."

So cheers to us disagreeing all down the line! :)

This is how it worked in detail: A panel of judges selected the four finalists and ranked them. The top-ranked finalist received 44 points, the second place received 33 points, third place received 22 points, and fourth place received 11 points. At that time, the public votes were added in to decide the winner. Points from the judges counted as 55% of the total possible points. So judges had a hand in choosing the winner. This was the first time public votes were accepted as points counted the final decision.

Also, the finalists made public appearances prior to winning; the winner was announced as the four were guests on ABC’s program “The Chew.”

From what I've read, yes. Wikipedia says the type of wallabies shown in the video, agile wallabies, face "no major threats, however in New Guinea it is shot for bushmeat and in Australia it is sometimes killed by farmers as a pest." Perhaps it's similar to deer in some parts of the US in that regard. They are constantly scavenging for food and get into trash bins and feed on garden plants like deer can. Some wallaby populations are shrinking and protected, but these agile wallabies are not in that category.

Note that I changed the adjective of the author on the referring site from "offensive" to "ridiculous." In some of these cases, ridiculous is my opinion, and I'm entitled to it.

In addition, I'd watch labeling people you don't know as envious. You might be making quite a ridiculous assumption regarding their financial statuses, thought processes and their lives in general.

There is the video and the link showing the doll, I used the photo as a frame of reference for Lammily's altered, more generous figure proportions. I've added that to the caption. Those were my immediate reactions to the stickers, and they aren't strongly held. Overall, I think it's great to have a realistic doll that represents average, healthy body proportions and I'm all for it and I hope it sells well. I do have to say that I disagree on the name --I think the name is weird and they missed an opportunity to have a better, possibly even meaningful (or at least cooler) name. Just my opinion on that detail. If I had named it, I would not name it the Marcily.

I agree about the shoes. I wonder -- in the shots in which people actually were looking at her and their disgust showed in their expression -- how things might have been different if she had on a nice, tailored suit or classy outfit, a beautiful bag and nice shoes, and her hair was done nicely. To me, the experiment doesn't work as well when the clothes, shoes and hair are bad.
