There is some hope, Most people would rather loose a pet over a significant other or partner than
give up the internet. 29.7% would give up a pet whereas on average 91.8% would keep their closest
loved one/ significant other. Unfortunately, for the other 8.2%, I think it’s a night in the dog house.

Finally, We should all be a lot nicer to women in their 50’s as these women are more likely to
save your life.
