Comic flushing out those phonies who are only claiming to have been a reject so others will like them.

Several years ago I saw a webcomic about distinguishing between those who falsely claimed to be unpopular in high school from those who actually were. There was a young female narrator / investigator, maybe identified as the author of the comic but maybe not, who talked about interrogating friends and acquaintances to see how unpopular they really were. I think the last panel showed her writing in a note pad. Anybody remember this? Google is getting me nowhere. I may have stumbled across it by following a link from here, but more likely from a comment than a post.

How do I keep the "Popularity" Column Always Active in ITMS?

How do I keep the "Popularity" Column Always Active in ITMS? I like to check out all the new music every week and for efficiency start with the "popular" songs for that album. Each time I go to a new album in the music store I have to reselect that column. Is there any way to have it always selected?

keeping track of best web services

Anyone know of a site that measures the popularity of a site - not just hits, or subscribers, but if a web service is growing (be it subscriber base, popularity) and if it's considered the most authoritative, etc. For example, say I'm trying to compare using Technorati versus Feedster - where would I go to compare these two sites, their features, their popularity?

Are Popular Women More Likely to Cheat Than Unpopular Women?

Are pretty and popular women more likely to cheat than unpopular women? I have always gone for the quiet, shy girl that was pretty, but pretty in the sort of way that most guys wouldn't notice. Are girls that can have any guy they want more likely to cheat? Or are they more faithful because they have trouble finding guys interested in more than their looks or popularity?
