1) Ok come on TIME, this article is pretty pathetic.

How did no editors catch that it was logically impossible?…
2) so, if all relationships were monogamous and heterosexual, and there were as many women in the world as men, then the effect of “economic pressures” on the ratio of single men to single women…
3) …would be null, because there would by definition be exactly the same number of each. There would be some number of couples, and that would be exactly the number of men and of women in a relationship.
4) the gender discrepancy doesn’t have anything to do with economic pressure or gender roles.

There are more single men than single women because there are more women than men in relationships…
5) …which can only really be caused by one thing: somehow there are individual relationships with more women than men, more frequently than the reverse.

In other words, more women are LGBT than men.
5) the gap is bigger than that, though; 3% more men say they’re single than women.

Which, I think, implies one of two things:

a) some men are dating multiple women. I’m guessing most of those aren’t disclosed to the women :p

b) some pairs disagree on whether they’re dating
5) So the study is interesting after all! Either men are cheating more than women, or sometimes a woman thinks they’re in a relationship but the man thinks it’s just something casual.

Honestly, probably both :p

The study just doesn’t have anything to do with TIME’s headline.

1) OK so pet peeve:

You're playing against a great offence, so you decide to run the ball more to "keep the ball out of their QB's hands".
2) This is a really common suggestion. 538, known "quants", just suggested it without any pushback!…

But it makes no sense.
3) The thing is, if you run the ball, taking up more clock...

Then that's time *neither* side can take advantage of.

Let's say you can choose between 75% running or 75% passing on this possession, and each have equal % of scoring.

1) Today we're proud to announce that FTX has been registered with the Securities Commission of The Bahamas under the DARE Act of 2020.…
2) We're extremely thankful for the work that the Securities Commission has put into building out a comprehensive regulatory framework for digital assets--one of the first in the world.
3) Having a comprehensive, nimble regulatory framework with oversight is essential to ensuring that the crypto industry is safe, robust, and growing.

We're excited to be one of the first global crypto exchanges to be part of a comprehensive spot + derivatives regulatory regime.

1) This is probably one of the most exciting announcements we've ever had.

@ftx_us + @ledgerx…
2) It's been incredibly exciting getting to know @zachdex and the whole LedgerX team, and watching them, @Brett_FTXUS, @_Ryne_Miller, and others work together on a common goal:

one of the most exciting goals in the crypto ecosystem.
3) We're excited to work with the @CFTC on innovating in the US crypto derivatives space in a regulated, understood manor.

Common ground between regulators and industry is the foundation of safe, sustainable innovation.

1) @FTX_Official is proud to announce that we've extended capital to @Liquid_Global.

All customer assets are safe and backed fully backed.…
2) We've admired what Liquid has been working towards: a leader in international cryptocurrency compliance, and one of the longest running exchanges in the ecosystem.

And we're excited to find more ways to work with them.
3) But for us, and for the Liquid team--@MikeKayamori, @CooLiquid, and everyone else--the customers always come first.

Which is why the first priority for them and for us was to make sure that everyone was going to be protected.

1) The currency of crypto
2) What's the 24h volume on @FTX_Official?

@coingecko's API says 205,706.

Which, at this point, will seem really weird to anyone in the industry. Shouldn't it be around 10B?
3) For those who have been here a looong time, though--predating me--this might be exactly what you're expecting. (CoinGecko's API is retro!)

In the last 24h, FTX has traded roughly 200k BTC worth of assets.

But at this point, BTC-denominated volume is all but gone.
