    People in Their 20s Hook Up With Their Exes, Says World’s Least Necessary Scientific Study

    If you're a person who doesn't know any other people and has never been in a relationship before, it may come as some surprise to you that sometimes, people who are no longer in relationships do silly things, like have sex together. It's true! While this fact won't surprise anyone who has lived on the surface of the planet for any of the last 20 years or so, it has now been confirmed by a study in the Journal of Adolescent Research. In related news, watching a season of Girls apparently counts as scientific research these days. Not that I'm disappointed -- by that metric, I'm officially a licensed science-tician! This calls for shots!

    Extremely Upfront, Honest Dating [Video]

    They're not necessarily "games," as daytime talkshow guests and online dating site profiles like to call them, but when dating, there are certainly quite a bit of common and even expected behaviors either one of the parties involved have to deal with. SEGERtube shows us what it'd be like if people were completely honest while dating, though still unable to avoid all of those common behaviors. Emma Koenig and David Serger play out this scenario, and it's something you've almost certainly experienced at least once in your life.

    Gay Hookup App Grindr Hacked, User Information Posted Online

    The location-aware all-male dating service Grindr seems to have been the target of a major cyber attack, taking advantage of flaws in the mobile app's security. An as-yet unidentified hacker was able to use these flaws to access the service's user accounts, and posted account information online. Though the attack primarily targeted the Australian users, it took advantage of flaws which affect all users and users of the heterosexual targeted version of the service called Blendr.

    The Moon May Be Millions Of Years Younger Than Previously Thought

    A new analysis conducted on lunar rocks brought back to Earth by the Apollo 16 astronauts has led researchers to believe that the moon may be 60 million years younger than previously thought. This would make the current prevailing theory about how the moon formed impossible. The new results date the moon at around 4.36 billion years old, which means that the moon formed around the same time as the oldest crusts on Earth (4.4 billion year old zircons from Australia.) Led by Lars Borg of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in CA, the researchers used new refining techniques to study the isotopes lead and neodymium in a 1.88gram sample of  ferroan anorthosites (FAN) from NASA's lunar rock collection. The 4.36 billion year number refers to the time when the sample crystallized. This opposes the giant impact theory, the currently favored theory about moon formation (although this theory has itself been called into question lately.)

    SuperHarmony, the Dating Site for Heroes and Villains

    Are you lonely? Looking for a special someone? Are you also ok with tights-wearing crime fighters or amoral megalomaniacs bent on world domination and/or life of crime? Friends, SuperHarmony is the site for you. And let's face it, it's been a long time coming. Some of these guys and gals have been doing the whole lone-wolf thing since the '40s. After sixty years of the isolation that comes with responsibility, or a life of meaningless sex that only serves to inflate your established sense of power and superiority over other humans, these folks deserve some down time. Time to "chillax." It's great to see tools like this finally emerging in the information age, bringing real happiness to some really super people. And superheroes and villains aren't the only ignored demographic finally finding love, as SeaCaptainDate plows the uncharted waters of the final dating frontier.

    The Pirate Bay’s Dating Spinoff on Strange Tides: Investigating PirateDate From Within

    You wouldn't think sharing files and sharing hearts have that much in common, but apparently The Pirate Bay sees fit to use its considerable strength in the former to launch into the latter. According to a TechCrunch report you can't help but be skeptical of until you see the site with your own eyes, The Pirate Bay is teaming up with Meezoog to make an incredibly-similar-to-Meezoog dating site, PirateDate.com. Needless to say, this required some examination from within. Geekosystem investigates:
