Here are some interesting tidbits I’ve found journeying along the interweb.
This is a math formula that will aid you in making decisions. When house hunting or apartment scouring, divide the total number of expected viewings by 2.71. In other words, if you expect to attend 25 open houses, then 25/2.71 = 9.23. Right off the bat, dismiss the first 9 homes that you see, then put an offer on the first one that you really like after that. There’s some real academic research behind this formula! After seeing 9 homes, you are attuned to what really works for you and are able to make a decision after that. I presume the formula would apply to dating too 🙂
Speaking of dating, check out this super cute geeky couple who met as teenagers at an arcade. They’re engaged now, hence the NYTimes article. But seriously, they do not look a day over 16 years old. Arcades = fountain of youth
I am one of the few people who has a Blackberry instead of an iPhone or Samsung. I know, it’s sad, it’s a work thing. But Eric Schmidt, the Chairman of Google, raved about his Blackberry and it made me see my device in a whole new light. It’s true that I can easily crank out lengthy emails using its qwerty keyboard. Are people with iPhones able to do the same? Thanks Eric for making me feel like less of a loser for carrying a BB.
Finally, make sure to scratch India off your travel plans or bucket list. More and more reports of attacks on women.
