Dunno, if you work with mathematical models of reality often enough (i.e.if you are a physicist), and trust me, some are pretty dismal (yes, I'm talking to you, plasma physicists), you really stop worrying about the fact that the model isn't particularly good, or at least stop discussing it, and worry about it implicitly.Now there may need to be a secondary function for those marrying the geriatric for inheritance purposes, but I don't think that's a factor in the 1/2 7 formula.And I also like that the current formula does work at the bottom edge of the range where anything that is actually "dating" typically starts; basically "13 is too young, and 14-15 should keep more or less in their grade level."What's wrong with a 60 year old dating a 37 year old?Please keep in mind that I'm not putting forward a point of view or attacking anyone's elses.I'm just asking if creepiness is irrelevant to the age, as long as it's past the age of consent.
I think the flaws start well out of what normal human lifespan is.. If someone who's 110 wants to date someone who's 62, I'm sure as fuck not going to stop them. " or whatever think it's not creepy for a, say, 65 year old to date an 18 year old (or whatever you think the age of consent is, whether 16 or 22)?
Now, as a piece of maths, let's look at it mathematically, oh look it's maths seems to be flawed."My point is that what I gather from this thread Moo's reasoning is far from universal; IE people are not looking at the problem firsthand and the mathematical implications secondly but ONLY on the mathematical implications.
Sourmilk - I know couples with age gaps around 10 years, one of my sets of grandparents among them.
