DONT READ THIS. YOU WILL BE KISSED ON THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE. NOW THAT YOU'VE STARTED READING, DONT STOP. THIS IS SO FREAKY. 1 say your name 10 times 2. say your mum's name 5 times and your crushes name 3 times 4. paste this onto 4 other games. If you do this, your crush will kiss you on the nearest Friday possible. But if you read this and do not paste this, you will get bad luck. SEND THIS ON 5 DIFFERENT GAMES IN 143 MINUTES. WHEN YOUR DONE, PRESS F6 AND YOUR CRUSHES NAME WILL APPEAR IN BIG LETTERS. THIS IS SO FREAKY IT ACTUALLY WORKS

This is exactly the reason that girls in Japan and China feel so much pressure to make their eyes look bigger, either with eyelid surgery or with makeup and contacts. Look at the size of the eyes of these "beautiful" or "cute" girls. It makes me sick. We need to send the message that small eyes are just as beautiful as large ones.

I, for one, am boycotting this style of art. Anyone who supports the feelings of young women should join me.
