TS loves facts, especially facts that are unquantifiable and are thus impossible to prove.
For instance, take this gem from, a dating site for married people.

According to the adulterous website, accountants are the most exciting workers to go on dates with. Not because number crunching is a big turn on, but because their ‘boring' jobs makes them more interesting in the bedroom, apparently.

A spokesperson for the site goes on to suggest that working in the profession leads to a build-up of ‘tension' that results in book-keepers living out their wild ‘fantasies' between the sheets. member Sheena from Glasgow said: "I find that more intellectual men want a rest from constantly being ‘on' and are much more interested having some fun and switching off."

TS does not have Sheena's contact details.
