Appropriate dating age equation aduilt dating
Speaking of which, you've been quite vague about said problem.Don't assume we know what "the problem" is; I personally have no idea.Obviously it is a gross generalisation, but still, it's a pretty good one. Unlike /b/, who rejoice in being seen as a single homogeneous entity, I think the denizens of xkcd like to be seen as a collection of unique individuals. My point is that what I gather from this thread Moo's reasoning is far from universal; IE people are not looking at the problem firsthand and the mathematical implications secondly but ONLY on the mathematical implications.
And I also like that the current formula does work at the bottom edge of the range where anything that is actually "dating" typically starts; basically "13 is too young, and 14-15 should keep more or less in their grade level."What's wrong with a 60 year old dating a 37 year old?
I'd guess the social norms that look down upon relationships with a large age gap?
Jos: this is a thread discussing an equation developed by Randall Munroe in one of his comics (or at least referenced, if he didn't make it himself), and is relevant to xkcd; where else would this discussion be?
Now, as a piece of maths, let's look at it mathematically, oh look it's maths seems to be flawed."My point is that what I gather from this thread Moo's reasoning is far from universal; IE people are not looking at the problem firsthand and the mathematical implications secondly but ONLY on the mathematical implications.
