This short article is about getting more options presented to a Tinder user, not about getting more people to like the user. This will be more of interest to people who can’t wait to get more people options to like or not at a given time, and/or who are not in areas with a high volume of users. The trick has limited value at any given time for repeats to only get you a few to a lot more users depending on the volume of users in your area, but the trick can probably be used at least several times a day, every day, so its full value can only be derived through repeated use.
In North American football, the extra point is a single point short kick after a 6 point touchdown to give the full 7 point value a touchdown can give a team. The full 7 points also makes the touchdown more valuable than two field goals, at 3 points each, in not only concept but also score. Otherwise, the extra point is also a second chance to cheer loudly for the touchdown just scored if it were your team to have done so.
Once upon a time, the extra point used to require an actual effort so it was not a sure thing by any means. However, these days, it has a success rate of over 99% according to New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick. It has become too easy for the players playing to execute it that it not only becomes boring, it’s also a waste of time. Sports Illustrated’s Peter King feels the same way about it, calling it “the biggest waste of time in sports”. Nothing in sports should be that automatic, basically. What kind of competition is there if the outcome was the same more than 99% of the time?
This year (2013), I started a fairly organized Cosplay Pinterest account to:
- Learn more about all the characters out there in the geek and nerd universes;
- See all the variations people put to these characters in their cosplays;
- Form a reference collection of cosplays for those looking for inspiration;
- Learn Pinterest and enjoy my Pinterest experience.
