I have been testing jokes and content over on Twitter at @ScottAdamsSays. I pulled together the most popular ones so you can see what types of content people respond to the best, at least from me. Is there a pattern?

Guys: If you ask a woman on a date and she says “possibly,” act optimistic and immediately make other plans.
I stopped shaving because I read that women are attracted to beard stubble. Not sure if women like all forms of laziness or just that one.

Leadership is a great thing to do to others and a terrible thing to have happen to you.

And all of the excitement about 3D printers won’t amount to much unless someone makes one that prints a hundred times faster. But it looks as if that might be around the corner. Check out this game-changer.
