Link of the Moment
An amazing page on the science and art of flirtation. Or, as they put it, To save the human race from extinction, and preserve the foundations of civilisation, Martini commissioned Kate Fox at the Social Issues Research Centre to review and analyse all the scientific research material on interaction between the sexes, and produce a definitive guide to the art and etiquette of enjoyable flirting. It's got me analyzing all my little social gestures, and being so introverted and observant is exhausting after a short while! Warning, the article might make you feel like a lab monkey for a bit.
Quote of the Moment
