South Korea has a problem. According to The New York Times, the birth rate has plummeted to 1.15 average births per woman, the lowest birthrate of the world’s most developed countries. The country is also highly conservative and does not allow for extramarital births. As people have moved out of the country and into the cities, it is more difficult for families to act as matchmakers for their children so they can get married and start making babies..

Most daters tend to want as much information as possible when they walk into a room to meet someone. But OKCupid is banking on the idea that information is actually getting in the way. There’s no denying that dating online is a bonafide “thing” now, but some wonder how much it actually results in people meeting their match.

Use Mosquito Noises To Determine A Blind Date’s Age

Most people I know won’t agree to go on a blind date without knowing the person’s particulars, and age is a big detail. However, it’s cool that the creators of the Age Prediction Machine are getting some buzz over here. Heh. [Impact Lab] Keep reading »
