Funny how every few years my life undergoes a major transformation and I lose touch with people. I guess it's not that funny - just how life goes sometimes. Some people though do keep in touch and have had friends forever.

Mine change.

I recently joined Facebook and have been getting back in contact with people from the past 20 years or so. Scary how many people one can encounter in that time. Even scarier is just how many people mean so much to you but you've forgotten it.

Scary how some people still hold a place in your heart. Odd how the heart remembers what the mind forgot.

Girls with really thin, very cunty eyebrows are not to be trusted. Ever. Period.

Craigslist Personals

As somewhat of a social experiment, but also as a potential vehicle for meeting someone to spend time with, I have recently posted three different ads on the personals section of Craigslist. Now I am no stranger to internet dating, but with very "interesting" results so far, I figured I had nothing to lose and potentially everything to gain.

The three ads I posted were all in Women Seeking Men and are all completely honest but different from each other. I've gotten some truly genuine responses, but also some nasty ones. The most amusing thing? Several men sent responses to all three ads - which were exactly the same for all three. Do they just do a cut and paste?

I've met some lovely people however, and I am looking forward to my new friendships with some of them.

Always good to meet new people and try new things.

Tiny Terrier Dies After Saving 5 Kids

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - A plucky foot-high Jack Russell terrier named George saved five New Zealand children from two marauding pitbulls, but was so severely mauled in the fight he had to be destroyed, his owner said Wednesday.

George was playing with the group of children as they returned home from buying sweets at a neighborhood shop in the small North Island town of Manaia last Sunday when the two pitbulls appeared and lunged toward them, his owner Allan Gay said.

"George was brave—he took them on and he's not even a foot high," Gay told The Associated Press. "He jumped in on them, he tried to keep them off.

"If it wasn't for George, those kids would have copped it."

One of the children, Richard Rosewarne, 11, was quoted in the Taranaki Daily News on Wednesday as saying George fought with the pitbulls to keep them off his four-year-old brother, Darryl.

"George tried to protect us by barking and rushing at them, but they started to bite him—one on the head and the other on the back," Rosewarne said. "We ran off crying and some people saw what was happening and rescued George."

But George, aged 9, was so badly mauled that a veterinarian had to put him down, Gay said.

"The two pitbulls ripped the skin from his throat and chest and down his back," he said, adding the tough little terrier also "had a bad heart condition."

Gay said the pitbulls' owner had surrendered the pair to dog control officers, and demanded they be destroyed, claiming they had launched unprovoked attacks previously.

South Taranaki District Council official Graham Young said the two dogs had been impounded, and likely would be destroyed because of the attack.

In New Zealand, owners of dogs judged to be too aggressive can be required to have them neutered and dogs involved in attacks are destroyed.

Dunbar's Number

As a social experiment, I've posted a couple ads on Craigslist to see what sort of replies I could get and also the eternal hope that never dies of meeting a soulmate (whether a romantic one or a friend for life).

One of the most interesting replies I got explained Dunbar's Number to me. It's definitely something I want to look into further.

Dunbar's number, which is 150, represents a theoretical maximum number of individuals with whom a set of people can maintain a social relationship, the kind of relationship that goes with knowing who each person is and how each person relates socially to every other person.

Something else fascinating, which could definitely hold true. Makes a lot of sense to me.
