I normally ignore stuff that my parents forward me because they are usually hoax-type warnings and powerpoint files of inspirational bible verses paired with nature scenes and cheesy music.
I'm not saying women prefer jerks over nice guys. But I know a lot of guys like this, and this kind of underhanded scheming should not be winning points with anyone.
I don't know if anyone here is familiar with this linguistic phenomenon called singlish (Singaporean English). It is a reality and boy is it something else! Beyond the singlish though, I think my jaw just dropped watching this video of Singaporean girls talking about why they are so awesome. And I'm still trying to recover, lah!
Seems like an old trick cuz I saw a lot of these lists as I went through the exercise. Go to Google. Type your first name, and the word "needs." Put the query in quotes for best results. List the top 10 (...or 15, like I did).

- Jane Goodall: the woman who works with chimps, not the Gorillas in the Mist woman. She was by far my favorite. Such an interesting and inspiring talk!
- Al Gore: he gave his 'An Inconvenient Truth' lecture
- Will.I.Am: he produced part of a song right in front of our eyes, on his laptop!
- Neil Gaiman: the fantasy/science fiction writer. Got a signed copy of Fragile Things!
- Hillary Clinton
- Christian Lander, the guy who writes Stuff White People Like
