As a 31 year old woman, it is very important to me what lyrics my friends write on their hands and what colors they wear. I have used this as a Litmus test for determining people’s characters for years and it has not failed me. A person’s wit or intellect, their reactions to adversity, and their general social bearing or demeanor matter not.
So I guess everyone else on Game of Thrones died, and now the show is just CGI dragons flying over cool landscapes? And the tomato crop is off the chain because the soil is so rich with everyone’s blood? And the only tits are the bird kind of tits?
The last six times I’ve been hired by someone I have heard a variation on the following: “That’s the best résumé I’ve ever seen.” (obviously, here in Scotland it’s “C.V.” but you get the idea)

This is real advice from a business writer at a large corporation.
