For those you  aren’t a devoted listener of This American Life, seriously what do you listen to ? Just listened to the valentine’s day episode, “Somewhere Out There” ?

What caught my attention was that in the beginning of  of the program a Hayward physics grad explains how he and his fellow physics grad students used Drake Equation to determine the likelihood of finding the perfect mate – http://www.thislife.org/Radio_Episode.aspx?sched=1283. The numbers are pretty bleak “It’s amazing that out of the 6 billion people in the world we managed to find each other.”
