Although I’d never seen the show, I now know why The Amazing Race is such a popular hit… Where else to start a good date, but where the food is! At the signal of our host couple, we each ran off to buy our choice of grub. At the end of the meal, we handed out packets containing four clues, each with a task. Obviously there are a million variations you could choose, so twist and tweak things to fit you and your friends, your location, and your favorite places to play!
We also handed out the one extra thing we each provided for the date as well such as a water bottle for each participant, a granola bar, and a “power pellet” candy band…yeah, ok, I admit it was just a candy necklace, but even the little extras can make it more fun for everyone! ” Of course, they don’t have to be like ours – just a team color works great!Believe me, there is a lot of laughing going on at this point! For a look at how to do your own iron-on transfer shirts, check out Tara’s description when she did it for THIS awesome LOST date!There was also a twist on how to get to each destination. One stop required you to link pinkies all the way there, another to skip at least part way, etc. The last “to-do” on the list was to all meet at the mall fountain and run up and down the stairs holding hands.

Ok Cupid’s gives you men – non-black men applied a penalty to black women – while black men showed little racial preference either way women – all women preferred men of their own race – but they otherwise penalized both Asian and black men Here’s how the exact person-to-person numbers shook out: The values in these tables are “preference vs.As such, it’s different from a look at, say, unemployment numbers or test scores. the average.” Think of them as how people weigh race in deciding attraction.So, for example, in the bottom-right corner of the lower table, you see that white women think white men are 17% more attractive than the average guy.Move one square to the left, and you see that they think Latinos are 1% above average, and so on.The color is there to make the big trends easy to see. Ok Cupid users are certainly no more open-minded than they used to be. Here are the numbers for 2009 till now—use the slider to move through time. These numbers reflect different people year-to-year. Together the charts fold in data from some 25 million accounts.
