Men dating age equation

Working with Sylvester Stallone must have been intense, Brigitte Nielsen OR Dolph Lundgren from Rocky 4. Talk about trying to fill Sean Connery or Roger Moore’s shoes as the new James Bond.

It seems that there’s an XKCD comic for every life situation that we run in to. One of my favorites, by far, is the comic titled “Dating pools.” This comic highlighted the Standard Creepiness Rule, a.k.a.

Okay, we have all known that guy who’s about 100 and going out with someone young enough to be, well, their caregiver *or their grandchild*.For instance, you might want to know what the oldest age you could reasonably date would be.The rule doesn’t say anything about that, but it does also apply to the other person. We take away seven from each side to get $y-7=x \div 2$, and then double both sides to get y-14=x$.Two things: the somewhat random-looking picture above is from The Moon Is Blue, a 1953 film that’s the first known reference to the ‘dating rule’ discussed here.Secondly, I don’t make any judgement about the validity of the ‘dating rule’ – you might find it a useful rule of thumb or a ludicrous restriction; I find it a nice thing to do some algebra on.
