On a lighter note: Ex-NASA man comes up with a decision-to-ditch-the-wife tool

NASA often likes to mention how its programmes have given the world  new technologies – most noticeably in the fields of new materials and digital computing. Among the spin-offs it remains rather coy about is a hi-tech lubricant, developed for the Space, which is now mainly used in the sex toy industry.

It is not just love hardware/fluids that those present and past NASA scientists have come up with. Ahead of the St Valentine’s month of February, it was revealed that NASA’s systems of analysis and decision making could have some applications for both commercial human missions and for other sectors of life in general – including finding true love.

As the MarsOne commercial effort to send a colony to Mars whittles its settler finalists down to 100, the question that remains is not whether these individuals will pair up in loving sexual relationships, but when and with who?

Before they make their decisions as to whom they should pick to have fun, frolics and a happy life ever after with, perhaps they should perhaps consult the work of ex-NASA man, Rashied Amini. Amini has apparently come up with a cost-benefit analysis algorithm to help men and women try to decide between potential romantic partners, or even whether to trade in their current model in favour of a new one.

See here for further details: http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22530042.600-romance-algorithm-predicts-if-youll-be-lucky-in-love.html#.VOtmBs-PMSk

The former NASA mission parameter expert has devised the Nanaya system of personality and visual tests to help you forecast how your personality will interact with a new potential partners, and what your prospects will be together, or whether you would be best to stick with your current partner/spouse.

While your correspondent does admit to wondering whatever happened to the Scandinavian* sex-kitten (*other regions also considered) he always promised himself, he will not be using this service.

And that is not just in case his “trouble-and-strife” might be reading this. Actually, and more romantically, this writer believes in the ideals of long term love, loyalty and commitment and in the avoidance of heartbreak if you can.  As such, he could not bear to be separated from his beloved wife.  And, of course, he also could not bear to be separated from his much loved house and pension which his wife would no doubt take with her if she left! 🙂

On that romantic note, a Happy Chinese New Year – the Year of the Sheep/Goat – to you all.

While the real science of astronautics is in no way related to astrology, nevertheless, 2015 is supposed to be an astrologically good romantic year for those sheep out there.

Under Western astrology, those born under the Sun sign Aries has the romantic pairing of Mars and Venus in their sign which is a portent of good loving and happier times. Meanwhile, under Chinese astrology, good things tend to happen for those born as sheep/goats in their own years.

A word of warning though. Some of you might be disappointed to find out what animal you are.  Your correspondent once had to break it to a female friend who thought she was a monkey that she was, in fact, a pig.  And by the way, for those of you that think of this writer as a cock (rooster), he is actually a sheep! Ahah! 🙂

Mind you, it might not be all bad news for those pigs and cocks out there as apparently they are also due to have a romantically and financially successful year.  For your Chinese animal predictions for the year go here: http://www.chinahighlights.com/travelguide/chinese-zodiac/goat.asp
