Lets see if we can find the chances of finding a suitable mate using my personal selection criteria:
-Must not be fat. 6/10 (0.6) Americans are too fat (this includes the obese plus the curvy types).
-Must not smoke. I think its about 1/5 (0.2)
-Must not be a lesbian. 1/20 (0.05)
-Must not have cats (I'm allergic). 1/2 (0.5)
-Must be moderately attractive. Standard curve, above 1 standard deviation acceptable. 3.18/10 (0.318)
-Must be at or around target age (1/5) (0.2)
-Must believe in global warming (47/100) (0.47)
-Must not be religious (about 4%) (0.04)
so we have
0.6 * 0.2 * 0.05 * 0.5 * 0.318 * 0.2 * 0.47 * 0.04 = 0.00000358704
Out of a US population of 320 million, 320000000 * 0.00000358704 = 1147.8528
There are only about 1,148 girls which meet my criteria. Lets say I'm above average in looks, and only 40% of them will reject me. That leaves about 669 women who are eligible. Lets take the population density of America, 88.6 people/sq mi, and half being women, then 44.3 * 0.00000358704, then the probability is about (0.000159 * 100) or about 1.6% that she's in ANY given square mile.
These are shit odds, /sci/. What do?

I'm 18 years old, and I started getting episodes of insomnia in early January (I was 17 at the time, my birthday is in February) and in February it developed into something more persistent. I tried diphenhydramine as well as melatonin and nothing seems to be helping me. I feel deprived of motivation, no libido, and dumber than ever before. It is now March, and although the insomnia has been somewhat alleviated, I still don't get enough sleep during the night. I have accumulated an overwhelming amount of sleep debt and I feel absolutely dead mentally. To worsen my situation I have school to tend to as well, (and they are AP classes). I want to return to my original mental state very much. I wanted to know whether insomnia causes permanent/irreversible brain damage (especially at my age since I'm only 18 and my brain is still evolving). I sleep better now, but I still feel tremendously burdened mentally by brain fog due to my sleep debt. Please reply asap. Your feedback will be immensely appreciated.
