    1) Believe it or not, a girl can *actually* be interested in you. No, I'm not kidding! You *don't* have to be a creeper!

    You don't know me! Crazy talk. I was going to stop reading, but I didn't and found this little gem:

    6) Do not, in any circumstance, talk about your penis. Not usually too much of a problem with American guys, but to guys from more sexually-liberated countries... we know you've got one, and yes, we've seen big ones before; now can you get on with the "being human" thing before we leave?

    If I don't talk about penises, how will you know that I'm not gay? You should think before you say stuff like this.
