The Problem with Valentine's Day...

For the better part of the past decade, I've posted an image of black oil-slick on Valentine's Day...

No commentary. Just a black oil-slick. Where a heart might be.

(It's an image I clipped from the open credit sequence of THE X-FILES MOVIE, btw.)

This is the first Valentine's Day in a long while that I happen to be in a relationship and it occurs to me that "Valentine's Day" penalizes people who aren't in a relationship AND people who ARE in a relationship! If you're a couple and you want to go out on Valentine's Day, it will cost you more. Why? Does that extra profit go towards helping lonely people? It's so cumbersome. Nobody wins.
