DailyDirt: Celebrating Valentine's Day… Or Not

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Some folks say romance is dead, but maybe it’s just in a deep meditative trance. In any case, it’s almost that time of year again when chocolates and flowers and possibly awkward marriage proposals are being considered. For the romantic souls, this is an annual tradition that shouldn’t be missed. For the more cynical, it’s just another commercial holiday to boost sales of various pink-heart themed items.

The Marriage Problem is merely an interesting way to describe a mathematical optimization problem. Many of the comments miss this, instead focusing on the irregular details of the human element.

Describing it as a Secretary Problem, reduces the emotional appeal of arguing details, but doesn’t eliminate all of the distractions.

On distractions…

I prefer to celebrate Half Price Chocolate Day.

Another fun activity is identifying Mistress Day. It’s usually the day before Valentines Day, but varies. When Valentines Day falls on Sunday, Mistress Day is Friday.
