James Bond, women, fleeing death

How many times has James Bond used a woman's body to prevent himself from getting killed (blocked a bullet from hitting him with a woman, etc)?

How many women are citizens of Vatican City?

I'm interested in the citizenship of Vatican City -- does it include any women? if yes, how many, and what are their roles? and what is the age range of citizens? Since citizenship is granted according to official status, I assume there are no children? How about residents, as opposed to citizens? Are there any spouses or children of citizens living there?

Any good depictions of Women in the military/police service?

Just wondering if anyone knew of some depictions of women (either TV or film) in uniformed roles that pass the Bechdel test. Bechdel test being where two named women have a conversation about something other than a man. I'm racking my brain but can't think of any.

I've got to change my ways, dress for business every day

What is the dating world actually like?

I have a friend who insists on a certain way of understanding how men and women couple off. Basically, he sees the situation as rather animalistic, where all the women are essentially waiting to be asked out, and the first men to do so get the "choicest" women. The rest of the women are left for, well, the rest of the men. Obviously, this is pretty traditional/sexist/chauvinistic. Anyway, barring all that, he feels a constant urgency to get to women "before somebody else does," because "the best women will be taken." Of course, I understand asking someone out before someone else does, but his theory is off-putting to me. It seems like human personalities, reasoning, circumstances, geographies, and cultures throw a monkey-wrench into his theory. Things are a lot more complicated in my mind. Do you have an alternative way of seeing the dating world, have a different experience, or are there any studies that you could point me to on this subject?

Women’s shoes with superior construction.

I am searching for beautifully crafted, durable women’s shoes made from leather that will last for years. I know this is a tough bill to fit so I am not limiting this search to any particular kind of shoe or price range. For boots, I typically look for strong welting (Goodyear method) but this is increasingly difficult to find. I love the look of Frye’s but most seem poor quality for the money. For example, the outsole and upper are simply glued together in most models (although the engineer boots look pretty solid). For heels/dress shoes, I am interested in full-grain leather instead of the bonded or “genuine” stuff. I’ve heard good things about Fluevog and Chie Mihara, but haven’t looked into them yet. Any experiences? What other brands might have these qualities? Are there high quality men’s shoe brands out there that also make shoes for women?

Best way to approach/move forward with this situation

Went in to a clothing store, cute girl around my age who works there comes up to me and offers to help me out. She seemed interested in me (asked a lot of questions about me) but I'm not sure if it was because she was just being nice because she worked there or was really interested in me. I was however oblivious to any of her body language in the moment. She then goes as far as to offer me a job and told me to fill out an online application. Her immediate supervisor called me before I even had a chance to fill out the application after she told them about me (assuming she put in a good word). I did not get her number. I feel like I wasn't able to read her signals being in the moment. How can I salvage this and is it worth pursuing? How would I go about moving the relationship onward and upward in the best way? Thanks!
