New Harmony novel out from JAK/Jayne Castle, so at least I have some suitably enjoyable and undemanding reading for a hot summer evening.
BI is still pushing the Zombie Apocalypse Theme, with Wolf Richter weighing in on the idea that Oh Noes, crashes! better get out of stocks!!! *sigh* Seriously. Pick good companies and ride it out. But ya know, each to their own. Just make sure you understand the basic idea in Seth Godin's _The Dip_ and don't bail out at the bottom.
BI _also_ has a fun little roundup on various studies/experts on the subject of when to do the deed in a new relationship.
Obvs, ignore the Brigham Young person. That's like believing those studies funded by cigarette makers that said that tobacco wasn't actually all that bad for you. I'm completely with Goldsmith: don't push, but 36 hours cumulative time in each other's company ought to do it. But don't take my advice. My husband and I knew each other as friends (without benefits) for over a decade before we got together.
