Zurc, let's go halves on credit. We can call it the Larry J-Bird Principle: Any increase in height beyond 5'8" correlates with a proportional increase in ugliness squared.

Zurc, brilliant! The perfect name for it. I'm glad we're sympatico. My ideal woman is lovely and talented. It just so happens that such women tend to be the shorter ones, here in j-land. Luckily I don't have the sei-taka fechi a lot of guys do.

So Nessie, your ideal J woman is 100 centimeters?

I do tend to agree that the taller J girls do fall victim to the Larry Bird effect.

Confirming my hypothesis that the ugger factor increases exponentially with height, particularly for j-girls.

Both Risa's hair and dress are too long. Well, since she's 12, I guess it's OK! I do like the color and pattern of her dress.

I am deelighted to see this up in JT's headline section one slot above Speaker Pelosi's visit to Japan. It warms my heart to see JT drawing attention to the fact that that may have finally found someone for that one guy in Yojimbo to marry. May I add that I am thrilled to see a 12 year-old in a sundress getting such attention. Looking forward to your comments fellas!
