The Week Contest
This week’s question: Longtime single people in places like Brooklyn and San Francisco are now practicing “sologamy” and marrying themselves in full ceremonies. If a sologamist were to write a book on how to sustain a successful marriage with yourself, what could it be titled?
Last week’s contest: A new study has found that a shot of extra testosterone makes men less likely to think before they act, possibly because the hormone boosts confidence and eliminates the self-doubt that helps people evaluate their decisions. Please come up with a medical term for testosterone-induced, male overconfidence that “I’m right!”
THE WINNER: Male-pattern boldness Neil Ludlam, Sky Valley, Calif.
SECOND PLACE: Men-no-pause David Walter, Plymouth, Mich.
THIRD PLACE: Himpulsivity Troup Miller, Austin
