Webgame Wednesday on Friday! Jurassic Heart

What kind of person mashes up a Japanese dating sim and dinosaurs? A crazy person, obviously. But that shouldn't stop you from checking out Jurassic Heart, a ridiculous, thunder lizard-themed game that has you trying to pick up on high-school-aged dinos. Of course, being a Japanese dating sim, it’s wordy as hell. But this short taste of the genre is good for a chuckle.

Does Your iPhone Get You Laid?

According to this new set of stats at OkCupid's blog, iPhone owners are a bit more likely to have sex than folks with Blackberries, and get nearly twice as lucky as those poor suckers with Androids. I guess fiddling around with that sweet interface cuts down on the ol' eye contact.

But it's definitely not the camera on the iPhone that makes people think you're hot. The post also reports on which cameras make people look the most attractive, and the iPhone rates as barely passable. The Android is considerably worse at bringing out your good side, but at least it's not as bad as the Blackberry, which I can testify to having a truly miserable camera. So, how can you look your absolute best? The highest rated pics in the survey all came from the Panasonic Lumix GF1C-K dSLR - it'll only set you back about $800. But hey, who can put a price on beauty?

Can't Get A Date Online? Try Lying.

You're filling out the form at your favorite online dating site, and you get to the bits where, well, you feel like you fall a little short. Do you a) just say "what the hell" and go 100% honest, or b) give your vitals a wee bump? Online dating site OkCupid has compared the user data it gets to demographic data and finds that you (and most others) go for the bump. And why not? According to the stats, the difference between $40k and $60k a year, or 5' 6" and 5' 8" can be measured in a greater frequency of messages, better chances to meet people, and, one would hope, more sex. Check out the full post for juicy tidbits on the other sweet little lies we tell (at least the ones that can be summoned from piles of metadata and statistics).

Yes Dear Part II

I have generally tried to live by one rule when it comes to Valentine’s Day: no dating near the event, whenever possible! It’s too much pressure; and on that note, I generally try to avoid dating from November 20 through February 15, just to avoid the pressure of the holidays and a relationship. This way there are no disappointments, and my pocketbook stays dedicated to family and dear friends.

If you have been dating for six months or more prior to, then you are absolutely obligated to get your significant other something to commemorate the day we dedicate to loving one another. If you are married, well you should probably be at a jewelry store, because you have probably exhausted all the cute things you can find at stores like Walmart, to give your spouse. The pressure is insurmountable. We are surrounded by it, almost immediately after the first day of the new year, we are thrown right into Valentine’s Day. What bothers me about this holiday, is simply that it exists at all. I am not some jaded female that has had had too many bad relationships, and has thus sworn off this emotionally crippling holiday… wait a minute, I am. No, but seriously, the reason I don’t like Valentine’s Day and what it stands for, is because I truly believe that we could be loving every day. Loving without the red plastic buckets, candy hearts with clever sayings and expressions of amour, and small card stock valentines we share with our friends. Loving, simply, for the sake of loving. It’s interesting that red is the color of love on this holiday, and also the color my professors use on my school papers. I don’t think they are expressing their love to me with this red pen, but who knows? I would like to think that we can tell the people we love, that we love them, every day; not just on February 14.

Stay Tuned for Part III

Don’t Miss Part I
