Republicans Against Retirement - The New York Times
You often see political analyses pointing out, rightly, that voting in actual primaries is preceded by an “invisible primary” in which candidates compete for the support of crucial elites. But who are these elites? In the past, it might have been members of the political establishment and other opinion leaders. But what the new attack on Social Security tells us is that the rules have changed. Nowadays, at least on the Republican side, the invisible primary has been reduced to a stark competition for the affections and, of course, the money of a few dozen plutocrats.

BBC - Future - How often do you need to see a dentist?
The evidence is too poor for any conclusions to be drawn, but "once every six months" is probably more often than necessary.

How The Princess Bride Screwed Up My Love Life. | The Everywhereist
"If you want a storybook romance, you need to write parts of it yourself."

The relationship you want to emulate in The Princess Bride is not Buttercup and Westley’s. It’s super one-sided and weird. The best relationship in that movie is clearly the one between Fezzik and Inigo.
