She's wearing an abundance of red because she is absolutely desperate for someone to love her, or at least throw her a pity fuck.
No woman who reads to this extent can be naturally naive about colour theory like this.
She's only pushing away imaginary Lolita fans to give away the secondary assumption that people approach her in the first place, which they don't, else-wise you wouldn't have this hyper-made-up-doll-face smothered in red (her bra shirt also bright red) making such an eager diluted pupil faced photo sent out to potentially millions.

I thought women wore red lipstick to hide herpes. Wasn't that why the romans invented it? I don't know. It's ugly though.
>>
>>12764087
That's another good call.
Typically speaking when a woman denies a man it's quite plausibly in situations where she can be seen, an indicator that she values herself more than the person she denied, in an attempt that the man in the room she liked might see this value. Brainy people pretend they aren't shallow as a last defence, Brainy people who admit they are shallow are often just celibate and not in any involuntary way, no games etc.

>India has capitalism force on them from abroad and suffers multiple famines:

>World Bank and IMF's free trade demands for African nations depresses their once rising wages:
Wrong
>Privatization of Post-Soviet Russia leads to biggest drop of life expectancy in human history:
Only in Russia due to wrong transition methods. Poland and other blocs fared well. https://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/16/world/europe/16europe.html
>9.1 million die of starvation ever year:
In countries with low free trade rate yes
>it's okay because obesity is a bigger problem than ever too
Due to the technological society. Same problem would continue in a hypothetical but realistic transition to a left wing gov't considering left wingers would conserve the technological society.
>Stalin and Mao industrialize and collectivize massive agrarian nations over a relatively short period and famines occur
That's what we call "central planning".

Good chart, but I've come to appreciate Garfield on new levels after hearing Barrymore's brilliant analysis, which I will link to below. I would argue that any Garfield chart is incomplete without its presence, since only the most advanced readers would be able to fully penetrate such a layered body of work without any external help.

Ligotti definitely belongs on there but I would swap out Songs of a Dead Dreamer & Grimscribe with My Work Is Not Yet Done: Three Tales of Corporate Horror. Songs of a Dead Dreamer & Grimscribe have some pretty fucked up stories but nothing as relentlessly pessimistic as My Work Is Not Yet Done (the main story of the Three Tales of Corporate Horror collection). MWINYD focuses on a wannabe office shooter who tortures and kills his coworkers in some pretty disturbing ways.

IIRC, the person who called Lolita a "red flag" is a self-hating pseud. She called it a great book that she had read several times. Somehow, calling it your favorite book is still a red flag? Maybe with braindead normies. But if you have any respect for your date's thinking skills, then you should have no problem saying the truth.

Yeah, I don't get why people classify Dostoevsky as pseud/posturing-core. When I read TBK I couldn't put it down at parts, I hadn't been that into a book since I was a kid. Didn't Nabokov say he wrote soap operas? Nothing particularly elitist about it.

You don't understand the point being made. The question is not 'is eg Gravitys Rainbow a good book?' It's 'which books, if brought up by a date, are red flags?'
And while Gravity's Rainbow is a good book, its definitely a red flag regards dating. Ask yourself who would bring that book up in conversation on a date, and why. A person who does such a thing is either socially inept, pretentious, or attempting to brag, or all three.

no lord of the rings? no harry potter? no game of thrones? no hunger games? no dosto? no tolstoy? no stephen king? no mccarthy? let this be a lesson to you all, girls aren't into 'analyzing' literature, they like things that are entertaining and they can take at face value. they don't like the idea of a guy being so indecisive and weak-minded that he has to be persuaded by a book, placing his trust in another flawed human being. nothing turns them off more than hearing, 'well, i think it makes some good points.' it would seem they are wary of 'subversive' literature, like the red scare of the 50's in the opposite direction. i don't take this seriously at all, i had a girlfriend i introduced to the fountainhead and it became one of her favorite books.
