  1. Can anyone point to an age when the proportion was lower? Romeo and Juliet were already engaged to other people, IIRC.

    Men are not people? I know that dislike of men among academics is strong, but I assumed they were still part of the same human race.

    Only a third? My, my.

  3. See if I’m getting this right.
    This is an ap enables you to get together with other people for a bit of nookie? Yes?
    And people install this on their phones?
    Married people? People already in relationships?
    And these are the phones they’re going to leave around the house?

    “GWI’s figures, which are based on responses from a pool of 47,622 web users from 33 countries, found that only 1% of those polled had used the app. ”

    Yes. I can imagine the numbers would be small.
    This isn’t a survival strategy, is it?

    I am not sure what these things called Apps are – although I hear they are all the rage among young ‘uns. However I believe it is possible to put a lock on your phone of some sort, perhaps involving a series of digits, so that other people, up to and including the wife, cannot access it.

    The truth of this, I could not vouch for. I don’t have one. I checked. The bakelite is a little chipped and faded, but there doesn’t appear to be any way to stop people picking it up. Not that it would do them any good. The lovely Miss Higgenbotham who used to run the exchange got married and retired some time ago.

    Women claim the app is for “meeting new people”.
    Men keep the app tucked away in a hidden sub-folder with its own password (jail broken phone required) on a phone that is itself locked.

    Is there something about people in the oil industry I’m unaware of? Competence, or something? The majority of people I know struggle to turn a phone on. Past that…. it’s voodoo.
