Why Light Touching Can Double Your Chances of Getting a Date During a conversation, a light touch can impart a subliminal sense of caring and connection, leading to more successful social interactions and even better teamwork.

[…] Over the course of that day, three young and handsome French men [participating in a study] randomly approached 240 young women they spotted walking alone and propositioned each and every one of them.

To each, they would utter exactly the same words: “Hello. I just want to say that I think you’re really pretty.

I have to go to work this afternoon but I wonder if you would give me your phone number.

I’ll phone you later and we can have a drink together someplace.” If the woman refused, they’d say, “Too bad. Have a nice afternoon.” And then they’d look for another young woman to approach.

If the woman handed over her number, they’d tell her the proposition was all in the name of science, at which time, according to the scientists, most of the women laughed.

The key to the experiment was this: with half the women they propositioned, the young men added a light one-second touch to the woman’s forearm. The researchers were interested in whether the men would be more successful when they touched the women than when they didn’t. Over the course of the day, the young men collected three dozen phone numbers.

But it had to be run in terminal, so I took a look at this answer.

(To open the terminal and keep it open, I created a new profile in gnome-terminal (Edit/Profiles) called "new1", and under Profile preferences/"Title and command" set it "When command exits" to "Hold the terminal open".) In the end (by trial and error) I came up with this: Anyone interested may want to see the chat discussion here.

Topics include differences between different terminal apps, and different programs giving more or less desirable output depending on file type.

The studies providing evidence for the effectiveness of one game technique after another keep rolling in like a tsunami, washing away throbby-veined feminists and mewling omega virgins in their wake. The latest in this lie-smashing cavalcade is scientific proof for the game concept of kino escalation.
