This is a great one. Tragically true.
It hits zero long before 40. :-)
A good one, I would agree wholeheartedly, but does it work for both sexes and all genders...? just wonderings...
Now, now.... It seems to me that the baggage at 25 years old is generated by someone else - mothers in particular. (Have you talked to a 25 years old recently??) Over 40 it's all self generated baggage. You get baggage either way. Welcome to human life.
I'd say it's also very much a geographical factor!Funny nonetheless...;)P
Love it! Where does Ben put himself on the line?
It shows I don't have any baggages. Yay!
yeah dublin! coffman ftw
AWESOME!This all started from a conversation I had with a friend of mine who recently became engaged:Dude, you're luckyStart thinking about the mathAssume you have all women: 1.00Lets say, at this age, slightly more than are attractive and worth going for. .6Lets say that each year, 20% of those (conservatively) get married offAge 22: 0.6Age 23: 0.48Age 24: 0.384Age 25: 0.3072Age 26: 0.24576Age 27: 0.196608You have 2 real shots at this.1. Do what you did. Pick 'em young, while they are still available.2. Become more attractive ($$$) so that, even though there are fewer, you are more capable of winning them than the other schmucks left on the market
That 20% annual attrition rate doesn't take into account those coming back on the market. ; )
Need to remap it (probably a bell curve) as "without baggage, but mature".
Wolfger has a good point. But to remain consistent, "mature" should be rephrased to "close to the light" or "ready to knock off". :D
I think baggage is half the fun of a relationship. It's what makes chemistry real. If you look for someone without any, all you'll find is someone that'll latch onto yours.I think it's a line from "Rent""I'm looking for baggage to go with mine."
This inspired my own version of a Hagy Index (is there a name for these?).http://holdthemilk.blogspot.com/2007/04/this-is-not-actually-post.htm
should probably be exponential decay...
