Jeff B. Davis, Harmontown, ep. 94
I think the ability to feel strongly, emotionally, about something is the most important thing in the world, and I think that as I’ve grown up a little bit, I’ve learned to… you were talking about wearing a suit, a suit of armor or whatever the things are that we do… we use to keep the… the world away, uh – you’ve learned as you grow up that, uh… letting people in is really dangerous, emotionally, and you pay a price for getting older, uh… we all – we’ve all paid prices no matter how old you are, here in this room, um… I’ve – I think I’ve gotten a little less emotional and much better at finding quick, clever ways of keeping people at arm’s length, and… that does not make your life better at all.

If Barbie was an actual woman, she would be 5’9” tall, have a 39” bust, an 18” waist, 33” hips and a size 3 shoe.
• Barbie calls this a “full figure” and likes her weight at 110 lbs.
• At 5’9” tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. She likely would not menstruate.
• If Barbie was a real woman, she’d have to walk on all fours due to her proportions.
• Slumber Party Barbie was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled “How to Lose Weight” with directions inside stating simply “Don’t eat.”
