Wednesday Morning Silliness

This was the opening remark of a lecture I attended from a University of Minnesota professor of Data Analytics that did some consulting engagements for Match.com:

Question:  What's the difference between an online retailer like Amazon.com and an online dating site ?
Answer:  All Amazon cares about is if you like the book.  The BOOK doesn't have to like YOU!!

Have a good morning everybody..

Amazon probably doesn't slap a 35-year old cover when advertising a 50-year old book either.
Or state the 50-year old book is only interested in 25-35 year old books.

You dont have to wine and dine a book to get satisfaction.

You can shove the book on the bedside table whenever your finished

You dont have to ask permission to keep lights on with a book.

A book is always ready whenever the urge strikes....

You can have a book anytime day or night, in public or in private....

You can loan your book to your friends.

Well, some might do that with dating sites as well, but ewww.....
