My friend Rich sent me this link, calling it a “little timehole”…
From the web site:
Nothing keeps a relationship on its toes so much as lively debate. Fortunate, then, that my girlfriend and I agree on absolutely nothing. At all.
Combine utter, polar disagreement on everything, ever, with the fact that I am a text-book Only Child, and she is a violent psychopath, and we’re warming up. Then factor in my being English while she is German, which not only makes each one of us personally and absolutely responsible for the history, and the social and cultural mores of our respective countries, but also opens up a whole field of sub-arguments grounded in grammatical and semantic disputes and, well, just try saying anything and walking away.
Damn, he wasn’t kidding.
Each item separately is not all that compelling, but when you get to #20 or so you begin to realize just how epic this relationship must be.
The list is no longer being updated on the web, but there is a mailing list you can subscribe to if you are so inclined.
