I was hoping for a lopsided victory by the Phillies yesterday and then the Yankees rallied to make it interesting. Too interesting.

The older I get the more lopsided I become. I need less lop.

They almost always rally. That's why you need those 8 runs, minimum.

Isn't it interesting that most creatures have bilateral symmetry? The only exceptions I can think of are fiddler crabs and flounder. As such, we tend to notice the deviations from symmetry more.

I hate when I order a Hamburger and the person who made it hates his job and threw it together in record time, only to result in my dissatisfaction of a lopsided burger. Then again, if my dissatisfaction of the lopsided burger continued until I finally gave up on fast-food, it would probably help me to not be as lopsided from the side view in years to come. Something to think about...

Wavering in a sea of consternation, those who really knew Elizabeth, understood that her lopsided smile wanted to be whole, but until she could make sense of the incongruous matter, her outwardly expressions would continue to exude her innermost feelings. Her actions towards His Majesty, were always genuine.

I'm pretty sure there is at least one study that concluded that most people consider others with the most symmetrical facial features to be the most attractive.

I too have heard of this study. It seems like a logical conclusion to me.
