Awww...thanks Cyrus! That's so cute. Now I wish I had gotten a box of those sappy cards to give out to the folks at work. That would've been fun. The med students were dissecting the heart last week, and commented that we should have scheduled that lab for this week.

Valentine's day is just another insincere occasion to "prove" your love to someone else - as if paying for dinners/ movies/ dates and Christmas & birthday presents isn't enough we have to have a whole day devoted to proving our love to the "sweetheart" in our life. Yes, Man/Woman made this holiday what it is, so they could either be ecstatic or suffer and eat chocolate, kind of ironic huh?

If it was up to love there would be no Valentine's day. All it does is remind people like me that there's love out there, which isn't actually too comforting when you're alone. Knowing that there's love out there and you don't have any makes you feel like there's something wrong with you - as anyone who has ever heard the "you'll find the right guy/girl someday" speech knows all too well.

And all this is for a holiday celebrating a Guy who got fed to lions hundreds of years ago - seems appropriate doesn't it?

My verdict: It's all commercial but I don't care anyway..

Valentine's day is just another Wednesday for me, and I don't hate the OP.

What I do find interesting about V-day is that it is a day FOR WOMEN. I mean, just look at this thread. I noticed atleast 2 MALE members (Cyrus and Astro) of this forum have given out greeting cards/compliments aimed at the women. BUT, have the ladies given any cards back? NOOOOO (typical!). OK, I'm not really mad at you ladies :-) I just wish there was a day for guys is all. We could call it cheerleader's day :)

Anyway, happy valentine's day ladies

Anyway, for all the guys:

Perhaps the women are more discrete and discriminating.

I am just shamefully unabashed and brazen.

I really do think the PF women are very cool , and I very much appreciate their insights and contributions.

His response was in such an ummm succinct formulation that I never noticed it. If there was ever a post in physicsforum that was straight to the point... THAT was IT! LOL. Not that I disagree, I LOVEEE steak

Oh, and how do you get those greeting cards to show up? Does one need to become a paid contributor to gain such powers? In any case:


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY LADIES!!!!!!!!!!!

Agreed. I'm a tad surprised at how many PF women are single and lonely(???) tonight.

You just have to use IMG tags (click "quote" on my post and you'll see how the tags are used...you have to find sites that don't block hotlinking like that though).

In any case:


HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY LADIES!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks.
