Facebook Can Predict With Scary Accuracy If Your Relationship Will Last

Published

In honor of Valentine’s Day, Facebook let us in on something creepy. With the mountains of data it has on its members, Facebook has a pretty good idea if a romantic relationship between two people on the social network will last.

It turns out that if two people have been “Facebook official” for three or more months, they’re likely in it for the long haul.

In a new study, Facebook data scientist Bogdan State analyzes the relationship statuses of U.S. Facebook users from 2008 to 2011. He found that the most important predictor of whether a relationship will last or not is how long the couple has been together.

State came to the conclusion that “about half of all Facebook relationships that have survived three months are likely to survive to four years or longer,” which makes sense. As time goes on, more unstable, casual romances will end, leaving a higher percentage of strong, stable relationships.

The study focused exclusively on relationships that have lasted at least three months and whose members were at least 23 years old. He also didn’t include anyone who was listed as “married.” Because the study doesn’t take into account relationships that end before the three month mark and, naturally, ones that aren’t “Facebook official,” couples doing shorter flings or who are a bit more private are left out.

Here’s a graph showing the “estimated probability of a relationship surviving to a certain duration, for relationships lasting three months or longer.”

The study also looked at pattens of breakups, and found that relationships are most likely to end during the summer compared to other seasons. Perhaps the academic calendar year, which draws people away from current lovers as college ends or graduate school begins, is at play. There was also an acceleration of breakups through the year 2011. “Could it be that a rebounding US economy played a role?” State asks. Somehow we doubt that.

Facebook’s penchant for trying to predict relationships starts with its founder. According to the 2010 book “The Facebook Effect” by David Kirkpatrick, Mark Zuckerberg, in his spare time, found that “by examining friend relationships and communications patterns he could determine with about 33 percent accuracy who a user was going to be in a relationship with a week from now.” He did it by looking at “who was looking [at] which profiles, who your friends were friends with, and who was newly single, among other indicators.”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

Published

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
