How did this ever get into an argument about female body size? CC, leave skinny girls alone. :cry: You're bound to get a reaction from all the skinnies that have been hated because of a body size they did not choose.

Small is beautiful. Big is beautiful. We all are! Strato picked a skinny one for their video. Maybe they like skinny women... or maybe they want to sell more copes of the single so they put a skinny girl in the video. Is that any different to Koti onstage in a tight shirt and trousers? :P

Maybe they asked the model agency for a meaty gal, and they said "sorry, we don't have one, but we have got some twiggies. We have the perfect girl for you, she ate last Wednesday."

:lol: Hell, it's late and I had a bacardi. :twisted:

Never mind. I'm just jealous because I'm not flat-chested. :(

And, I was NOT the only one who mentioned Skinny. :D

Actually, thats what women want in a guy, too, but often we have to look a certain way to get that kind of treatment. Reality bites! :)

Actually I mentioned that.
I wasn’t trying to offend skinny people... the whole point was about models and the dictatorial way some of them have to live - eating low calorie food and stuff - to look like that.
If looking like a skeleton is a beauty standard nowadays I don’t give a damn... I’m not skinny at all but I’m not fat either... and I think that saying “fat people are jealous of me because I’m thin/they feel ugly” is pretty lame.
It’s all a matter of taste... I’m not jealous of ANYONE and I’m very happy in the way I am nowadays.
If anyone thought that I was feeling jealous, I’m sorry to inform you, but no lack of self steam here: I have what’s needed to fill up a neckline, I love that and would never change it even if I could.

And the most important thing: I DON'T judge people because of appearance... I don't really care if they are black/white/green or fat/skinny whatever. I only care about their attitudes... just that.

How a thread about the single ended up on this stupid discussion? :roll:

I wasn't suggesting anyone who is not thin has a weight problem, it's just that Jenni said she had encountered some prejudice based on being thin, and so have I.

It's just that the "boney assed flat chested" thing seemed a bit mean... meaner than "i prefer women with some meat on them" or whatever.

you know, as the years pass by you'll meet a lot of people and you'll realize that appearance ain't what really matters.
I've met really beautiful people outside but they were disgusting on the inside... and vice-versa...
Another thing is what you think it's beautiful may be considered ugly for me.
As I said before, it's all a matter of taste.

Hey you ladies, is there any chance that you can take your estrogen-fueled body-type discussion to someone else's thread? I just want to knowwhat you guys think of this upcoming video, not hear you all ramble on in vain about your self esteems and such? ;)

Take your testosterone fueled hostility and put it into your boyfriend's ass! Of if he is the man in your relationship, you can put it in your mother's ass. After all, that's probably how YOU got conceived in the first place, by some dog sodomizing your mom's anus :lol:

BTW, what will happen, when thousand of people try to download the video from one site? ;) Hmm, prettey obvious for me, that at least one or two additional sites should share this video. BTW, my birthday will be 2 days after this video is shared... so a good present for me. :)

I was thinking the same thing! :D
I can't download on my equipment, but I will use my son's computer.
Yes, it will be a good present, I agree! :)

I'm sorry, "Jennibunni," but you just walked right into this one:

Actually, perhaps this download is more of a treat for the current forumers. Most Stratovarius fans probably don't check the website on a regular basis, so we'll be perhaps among the only ones to know? I think that the other fans will probably come to download it at least a couple days after us.

As of when I posted this, there are 3 days 16 hours 15 minutes 42 seconds remaining. Oh and I just checked the source of the page to see how the counter is being done, and they use a setInterval function instead of doing it underneath through the server. So then I checked the code a little more carefully and saw:

Code: Select all

// fuck this, do it server-level instead for a better subjective user experience<tm> &#58;&#41;
//		setTimeout&#40;'window.location.reload&#40;1&#41;', Math.round&#40;Math.random&#40;&#41;*30&#41;*1000&#41;;
		setTimeout&#40;'window.location.reload&#40;1&#41;', 1500&#41;;
		return;
	&#125;
This is, needless to say, probably Jens' work 8)

The counter says 16 hours+
So, its getting closer.
Thank God I'll miss the rush---all these people trying to get on at once may make the whole thing Crash! :eek:
