  10. 10. Despite two decades of online interactions which have exposed me to the very stupidest things humanity can offer, it nevertheless manages to sneak in a surprise now and again.All the pointlessness of Xbox Live Avatars combined with the ancient (by internetstandards) practice of rating them on a one to five scale based on how "hot" or"not" they are. And yet, I still found myself clicking through half a dozen avatars(rating every one a "3" because I dont know what the hell constitutes a "hot" or"not" avatar).Its about time we stopped judging whether or notpeople were hot by how they look like and instead bywhich out of a very small selection of clothing theychoose to wear and how much money they havespent on completely useless things. Small victories.
