(67) Brian Bauman - The United States (and most other countries¹), use...
a normal American making $43k per year has no reason to oppose such a tax.
1) They're nowhere close to having to pay it.
2) It's not egregious to those who would have to pay it.
3) It's not a new, untested, or radical policy.

And, more generally, average working people shouldn't concern themselves with protecting the financial interests of people who make in a year (after taxes) what most of the country would be thrilled to retire on. The only way an average person would be affected by such a tax is that the government would have more money for roads, bridges, schools, social programs, and other things that might actually improve the lives of $43k/year Americans all over the country.

Why Sex? And why only in Pairs? - Marginal REVOLUTION
The core conclusion is that mutations continue to rise with the number of sex-participating partners, but in simple Red Queen models the limiting features of the genotypes is the same whether there are two, three, or more partners.

Men Are Animals:
I agree with all the comments citing motility/sessility.

Are Sunk Costs Fallacies? -
But to what extent is the sunk cost fallacy a real fallacy?
Below, I argue the following:
1. sunk costs are probably issues in big organizations
- but maybe not ones that can be helped
2. sunk costs are not issues in animals
3. sunk costs appear to exist in children & adults
- but many apparent instances of the fallacy are better explained as part of a learning strategy
- and there’s little evidence sunk cost-like behavior leads to actual problems in individuals
4. much of what we call sunk cost looks like simple carelessness & thoughtlessness
