This is nothin'. There was a guy in my sister's high school class who
tried the brute force approach and asked out *everyone* in his class. Talk
about negative network effects! The value of asking out each girl
decreased over time, and undoubtedly went negative, as girls expected him
to ask, expected to say no, but would still be offended if he didn't ask.
On the other hand, it was amusing enough that I still remember it 15 years
later. And, I'll bet he has had no lack of dates in his life (post high
school :-)
