No Sex Tuesdays

Well, it looks like the oversharing is paying off. A team of applied mathematicians at the University of Vermont analyzed 2.4 million blogs and other web overshares, counting the positive versus negative words as they appeared on individual days of the week.

Turns out Tuesdays is when we have the least sex. The good news? Less people seem to be getting into car accidents on this day. This being the city of perpetual driving, the no sex and no accidents is a bittersweet combo. But we’ll take it.

Bad day for driving? Wednesdays.

Good day for sex? Thursdays, apparently. And first thing in the morning, too.
