Let me tell you, I've been emotionally involved with companies before, and it rarely ends well. I find that corporations never reciprocate your love in quite the same way.

The Surname Study. According to this, if your last name begins with Z, you might as well give up, haha.

I Want a Lucky President. Scott Adams posits that everyone has the same amount of luck, but it's distributed unevenly over a lifetime. If you use this theory to pick a presidential candidate, just think: "[Mitt] Romney scares the hell out of me. That guy was born wealthy, handsome, and brilliant. And he keeps getting smarter, more successful, and better looking. Everything he touches turns to gold. Luckwise, he’s running on fumes. If he gets elected, I expect the moon to fall out of orbit and land in Ohio."

Apocrypha Now II: The Revenge of Samuel Pepys. Suppose you wrote your PhD dissertation on the diarist Samuel Pepys. But suppose you'd never heard his name pronounced ... [via tenser, said the tensor]
