I gained some wisdom from my trusty airport magazine this weekend, Cosmo. That and Scientific American.
The first is on the subject of comedy. My roommate and I have an ongoing discussion about whether jokes reinforce negative stereotypes. Cosmo said that we laugh at what we fear, or what may cause us pain. Our laughter is a sort of sigh, like, ooo, glad that didn't happen to me.
Secondly, Cosmo had more than one article that spoke on the need to keep relationships passionate by maintaining some mystery. They proposed that your romantic partner shouldn't necessarily be your best friend…best friends know you so well they can read your mind. Comforting? Yes. Exciting? No.
Just a couple interesting things from my weekend. More later.
