Valentine’s Day familiar FAILs


goo Ranking asked women from their monitor group to choose not in the least unusual ways to fail on Valentine’s Day, which, now that I think about it, is really quite an uninteresting-sounding topic.


Over the 7th and 8th of December 2012 1,059 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 61.4% of the sample were female, 10.8% in their teens, 14.4% in their twenties, 24.9% in their thirties, 28.8% in their forties, 11.5% in their fifties, and 9.6% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample. This question was for the women only.

It’s amazing the pictures one can find on Flickr – here’s a chocolate heart that has not just melted but also been run over by a car!

Melted Heart

My wife had an experience today of leaving the buying until too late, and finding all the good stuff sold out!
