“I don't know about you, but I've never been broken up with. Shot and left for dead, sure, but never broken up with. The few times it almost happened I tricked the girl/dino into giving it another shot, and then broke up with her the next day. Haha, works like a charm! Well, at least until they start smashing your electronics and beating your car with a rake. Womens.
A very interesting data visualization from infographic wizard David McCandless is making its way around the web, depicting the most common times a year that people break up -- via Facebook status updates.

McCandless whipped out the chart during a TED talk this past summer. Apparently, he and his team scraped 10,000 status updates for the phrases "break up" and "broken up," and made the following discoveries: 1). A ton of people break up before social occasions like Spring Break and the summer, 2). Mondays aren't just the start of the work week -- there're the end of many a relationship, 3). People have the decency not to dump their significant others on Christmas Day.
That chart is really fascinating and all (I didn't actually bother looking at it), but I can already tell you when most people break up. The day one of them finds out the other is cheating. Also a popular date for gun-related deaths!” - Geekolgie
