    Xkcd’s ‘statistically significant other’ strip also works well here.

    The flaw in the “Dating Pool” strip is that it assumes the Creepiness Rule is the _only_ constraint on acceptable dating age.

    In practice, most people also have a “within X years of me” heuristic, which changes the conclusion.

    Except, in this game, someone can come along and yank the chair out from under you and dump you on the floor, starting the whole cycle over again.
