I've known three wimmen in my life named "Renata." They all three were crazy. VERY crazy.
Can I call this "scientific research" and get some headlines from this study? I want some bold type in major news outlets announcing "DANGER!!! Research Concludes That Naming Your Child "Renata" Will Increase Her Chances of Being CRAZY!!!!
"I've met three wimmen named Renata in my life. All three were crazy. Therefore, I conclude that all wimmen named Renata are crazy." Sounds logical to me.
I don't see why this story wouldn't fly. It's better than most of the scare-you-to-death bullshit puiblished as "science" today, and it gives a lot of men the chance to do their own research. If you see an attractive woman, you ask her name and she replies, "Renata," you have two choices.
#1-- Run like HELL. She's CRAZY!!!! Go sign the Koyto Treaty or save a whale. Hug a tree and pray to Gaia for protection. Renatas are CRAZY!!!
#2-- Charm her, buy her a drink and try to get into her pants. Figure that you'll do more study of the "CRAZY" aspect of this particular Renata once you've done some exhaustive preliminary research. Don't believe those "scientific" studies.
Which would you do? I've shown you the goddam FACTS!!!
I would conduct a double blind study. Adopt 6 girls and name three of them Renata. If those three grow up crazy, and the other three don't, I believe that would pass peer review. A bit of work, and time, but it's always nice to have one's findings confirmed.
Crazy, shmazy, that's not the important thing and you know it. How were they in the sack?
Crazy in the Head = Crazy in the Bed.
I've only known one girl named Renata. Went with option #2. Repeatedly. One of the most "fun" wimmin I've known.
Was any of them Renata DeMayo? She lives in Georgia, and she's crazy as a loon, beautiful as a sunset in storm season, and I miss her.
I have found through personal experience that women named Karen are crazy (except for one very nice, sane I know and I condider her an outlier).
Can't comment on Renatas...
But do I have something to say about Christophers....
They are charming, cute, loveable, snugglely, and they are:
ABSOLUTELY NUTS ... MANIACS...WALK ON THE WILD SIDE...PUSH ALL THE BUTTONS...WHERE IS THE TIGHTROPE STRUNG ACROSS THE SIXTIETH FLOOR??
Want gray hair in your 30's ..name your first born son Christopher...name any son Christopher...
Or as I say "ChristOhOhpher".
Hang on, your in for the ride of your lives!
I'll second that motion Mr. Dane.
I almost had a roommate from Brazil named Renata when I was working in Colombia. I made the mistake of telling my girlfriend that the new person in the staff apartment was going to be a woman. My girlfiend said, 'no problem, I trust you'. then I said her name is Renata and she's from Brazil, and my girlfriend said 'no freakin' way!' .
I'm not sure if Renata's are a worldwide phenom, or just Brazilean women.
I usually have problems with Carols.
so nice to be popular, but whats really the story?
