If you're all willing to partake in science I have an experiment for you. I'll randomly assign a person/postbox (Gary) for you to interact with. I want to see what variables affect whether/how it works.

For instance, if both people are told to tell believable lies but are told the other person was instructed to be truthful, what happens? What if they both know they're both lying? What happens when people are paired with a person/gender/identity to whom they're not usually attracted? What happens if you leave Gary alone, staring at a postbox for four minutes?

Yes, let's do some science...

this seems like a dangerous experiment. what if we all fall in love with gary and want to marry him? we will be asking the legal systems of possibly multiple countries to have to simultaneously deal with the legality of gay marriage, polygamy and bestiality. and probably a few other things.

it could be the end of western civilization....

Don't be silly. I wouldn't assign you all to fall in love with Gary. I don't think he could handle it, bless his heart. I mentioned him because he will be paired with a postbox that I happen to know he finds attractive. The rest of you will be assigned others. For instance, you've been assigned whoever is in the office or cubicle two spaces to the left of your own. Now go find love, and report your results.

that's where the spare printer is. and the mailboxes.

am i supposed to find love with the printer, or the mailboxes?

it could be awkward, with the printer. it's the one that used to be in my office, before it got replaced by a newer printer.

Oh my Dogen that may be a quite an interesting idea you have there. Embarassed I for one want to try this experiment and see how well it works. We must assemble the legion of the followers of Gary now

aaaah one of my exes was convinced that worked but apparently left out the long string of questions part?

so we basically sat around and stared at each other for 4 minutes.

it uh... didn't work. to be fair, it took a while to figure that out.

Fine, fine. You can fall in love with mouse's printer, and she'll be assigned the next person over. Just remember that if it's a laser printer the toner drum becomes very hot when in use and may scald your skin.

it's a nice printer. a little up in years, but it turned out to be more dependable than i thought. (it's what i get for incipient agism).

I was planning random assignment, you see. Put you all in a spreadsheet and let a random number generator decide who you would love. This is hardly scientific.

But you should fall in love with whoever texts or emails you next. Don't forget to find time to stare into their eyes for four minutes.

There is some slim chance that Dogen might have happened across this story:

Drunk Man Tries To Have Sex With Postbox In Wigan

But it's probably just coincidence.

Also, you're all welcome to come and have sex with me whenever you like, so long as you hold me afterwards. Bring Schnapps!
