I know that the article is actually intended to be humourous, however, there’s no escaping the fact that there’s actually some bits of interesting information in there.
Another point missed is that, geeks, being tech-savvy, tend to have information at their fingertips. This includes actually finding out important scientific information relating to building long-lasting relationships based on trust, affection and a million other things that have a tendency to wreck one.
Overall, although humourous, the article is also insightful and concise. A recommended read for geeks and non-geeks alike.
