- '+_'. That is, why people here give numbers to each other. I don't see what's to gain. It seems like a juvenille way of giving kudos, but that's just my opinion (and I'm not a native speaker or familiar with all of modern American culture). - Drinking laws in America. - The appeal behind most sexual fetishes. - The appeal behind most modern music. - How much certain things cost. - That other individuals often find what I consider to be cheap (generally in terms of clothing) to be very expensive, when they're well off. - The tastes of the majority.

I think you're talking about "+1"ing a certain post. It just signifies agreement with the post, nothing else that I'm aware of. It's like adding a vote. Sometimes people +1000 or whatever a post in hyperbolic over-agreement.

Body is not bad. Hit it from behind. But yeah, not a face you want to wake up to. Ditto Padma Lakshmi, who rather resembles Aahnold in the face if you look closely.

Also, you get to be meta by writing "plus one".
