Well I can’t have much to say here because I am a perennially single guy who some choose to call a L-o-s-e-r on this day.
But hey that’s what I am and besides presenting a paper on “Prediction of protein essentiality in complex organisms like otters”, I did read this interesting article on CNN.
This is what it says;
The National Retail Federation estimates that Americans will spend $17.02 billion on Valentine’s gifts this year.
Each person is expected to spend an average of $122.98 on Valentine’s Day, according to retail trade group. The figure is up from $119.67 last year.
Okie, so if I subtract $5.61 that I spent on Subway Sandwich, I have saved $117.38 today. And they call me a L-o-s-e-r!
$17.02 billion in gifts. Wow!! Valentine’s Day is the only day when I think that being a florist would have been a better career option than being a scientist.
Anyways, Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Let the love spread!
