A Couple Links

No post last week due to a great party the previous weekend and that’s when I write my posts (generally).

To make up, here are the best posts I read last week:

The author of this article gets a bit sarcastic, and I do not agree with his statement that ‘there is someone for everyone’. But it is still the best article I have read on the topic.
