1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    A Russian, an Ethiopian and a Singaporean were being surveyed by the World Bank. The question was "What is your opinion on how much money you spend on food?"



    The Ethiopian asked, "What is food?"
    The Russian asked, "What is money?"
    The Singaporean asked, "What is an opinion?"

    A world-wide survey was conducted by the UN.

    The only question asked was... : "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"

    The survey was a huge failure because...:

    In Africa they didn't know what "food" means.

    In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" means.

    In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" means.

    In China they didn't know what "opinion" means.

    In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" means.

    In South America they didn't know what "please" means.

    In the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" means.

    I would have preferred a billion dollar backpack.

    Doable if your backpack contains the antimatter bomb from Angels & Demons. Actually it would be worth several trillion dollars.

    I always imagined my dream house constructed from glass and coming out of the side of a canyon ala the cover of Air - 10,000 HZ Legend. [​IMG] This house looks better because it isn't located in a grey, polluted urban armpit. And it's probably cheaper to boot.
