In time, all of my pageant friends became so obsessed with their appearances that they made every woman who walked down the street into a comparison, celebrating when they discovered that they were still the "fairest of them all" and reaching a near breakdown when a long-legged stranger made them feel as though there was more work to be done. A petite blond at a cafe immediately made them "fat." A girl with acne made them scoff and cackle like hens. In time, the side show of pageantry bled off into their every day lives with such vehemence that each moment became a graceless performance.

What I Learned The Week: Taking Credit Where Credit Isn't Due

Like guilt, there's an effect called "success by association," and people are willing to give you credit for things you were so far away and foreign to, you'd need a passport to make your way back in. When offered it, say thanks and let it make up for all the things you deserve credit for, but will never get. It will make others happier.

Have We Become Uncomfortable With Pregnant Bodies?

Most women, famous or not, feel tremendous pressure to live up to the bizarre and completely unrealistic ideals of our image and skinny obsessed society. Is it really an issue that Kim Kardashian is comfortable showing off her growing, changing body or is the real issue that we're uncomfortable looking it? I honestly believe that we have forgotten the miracle that childbirth is. Show me a woman who has tried unsuccessfully to conceive, and I'll show you a woman who would joyfully trade her flat stomach and narrow hips for the stretch marks, expanded rear end and growing belly that can accompany a pregnant body.

Every year on the Monday after the last Sunday of the regular season, the NFL unofficially holds its annual (seemingly drunken) firing fest as the wise people who hired all these apparently inept people in the first place, conclude at once not that they made horrible hiring decisions. And yet, oddly enough, the league seems to do little to capitalize on all this inherent drama.

Take a look at Trump's signature. In general, cursive handwriting is comprised of straight lines and loops. But Trump favours straight lines and does away with curves or loops. For the graphologist, roundedness implies emotionality and softer aspects of the personality. But what is the meaning of the straight line?

While it's nice to get drunk on the social media Kool-Aid and point fingers at those who have gained exposure and popularity through it (both positive and negative), all of that pales in comparison to the fact that we still don't even really know just how powerful this new media is.
