    I like women from countries that have sustained political turmoil.


    This has to be real.

    "...has to be real"?

    The possibility that it's a hoax - riffing off comparisons between Assange and The Stainless Steel Rat, a character created by Harry Harrison - surely needs some consideration? Because it's not as if there's any disinformation going around on this subject, is there?

    It's old, but real as far as WaPo and OKC can tell.

    comparisons between Assange and The Stainless Steel Rat

    So, Assange got the Embassy cables by breaking into a US government computer unnoticed, by timing his exploits to particularly loud passages in a Bill Clinton sax solo?

    ...sorry, but why the fuck do we care that he has an OKCupid account? It seems pondering that any more than two seconds brings us all in to Entertainment Tonight territory.

    Well, it's just plain funny is all.

    I'm just waiting for him to complain about this invasion of his privacy.

    I'm with @oldhat. WTF, people?
    I'm just waiting for him to complain about this invasion of his privacy.
    I haven't elected him to anything, and I'm not paying him taxes. I've far less concerned with his escapades than I am with the people I *did* elect and *am* paying taxes too. And I don't *care* about *their* online dating profiles either!

    I also have an OKCupid account. But I never dated Assange.
