God, Shit, and True: Why Did God Create Atheists? There is a famous story told in Chassidic literature that addresses this very question. The Master teaches the student that God created everything in the world to be appreciated, since everything is here to teach us a lesson. One clever student asks "What lesson can we learn from atheists? Why did God create them?" The Master responds "God created atheists to teach us the most important lesson of them allthe lesson of true compassion. You see, when an atheist performs and act of charity, visits someone who is sick, helps someone in need, and cares for the world, he is not doing so because of some religious teaching. He does not believe that god commanded him to perform this act. In fact, he does not believe in God at all, so his acts are based on an inner sense of morality. And look at the kindness he can bestow upon others simply because he feels it to be right." "This means," the Master continued "that when someone reaches out to you for help, you should never say 'I pray that God will help you. Instead for the moment, you should become an atheist, imagine that there is no God who can help, and say I will help you."

God, Shit, and True: Why Did God Create Atheists?
 There is a famous story told in Chassidic literature that addresses this
 very question. The Master teaches the student that God created
 everything in the world to be appreciated, since everything is here to
 teach us a lesson.
 One clever student asks "What lesson can we learn from atheists? Why
 did God create them?"
 The Master responds "God created atheists to teach us the most
 important lesson of them allthe lesson of true compassion. You see,
 when an atheist performs and act of charity, visits someone who is sick,
 helps someone in need, and cares for the world, he is not doing so
 because of some religious teaching. He does not believe that god
 commanded him to perform this act. In fact, he does not believe in God
 at all, so his acts are based on an inner sense of morality. And look at
 the kindness he can bestow upon others simply because he feels it to
 be right."
 "This means," the Master continued "that when someone reaches out to
 you for help, you should never say 'I pray that God will help you. Instead
 for the moment, you should become an atheist, imagine that there is no
 God who can help, and say I will help you."

Put all girls as vertices (a's) in Part A, and boys as vertices (b's) in Part B. 2. Draw an edge between vertex a to vertex b if a likes b. 3. It will be a bipartite graph (there are no edges within vertices of Part A, and same for Part B) unless your friends are not straight. 4. Then find maximum matching for this bipartite graph. (refer this link Maximum Bipartite Matching-GeeksforGeeks) 5. You will get maximum matching as output and the matched edges will be the pairs who should be together. 6. You can apply weighted bipartite matching algorithm if you know how much they love/like each other. In that case, assign weights according to their amount of love. and repeat step 4 and 5. Thanks for asking this question. Finally I have found a real life problem which can be solved by what Prof Panda has been teaching us for 2-3 years. P.S.I can provide you code for both weighted and unweighted maximum bipartite matching which I made for my project. Updated 28 Jul. Graph Theory can Save Relationships

Confused, Meme, and Sex: Hi guys, I've noticed that it is International Men's Day today, and I'm confused. Why do we need a day to talk about men? We're not a marginalised group like women, queer people, or people of colour The media is already full of stories about men I'm glad you asked, champ. Whatever your view on men's place in society, it's still true that we face a lot of issues- like social isolation, risk of suicide, health problems, and attitudes towards sex and child rearing Having a day to talk about those doesn't take away from anyone else's problems. In fact, having a day to talk about them helps us be more mindful, and listen better at other times The chief here is really on to something. I want to echo what he said, and also point out that the idea we should remain silent about our problems actually contributes to a lot of our issues. We are human beings, with human needs. Seeking mutual support and understanding isn't the same thing as placing a burden on others. Especially if we're providing it for each other Right on, my fellow kings. We've inherited a social legacy of competition and division, and a lot of what makes a man in our era is under question IMD is a chance for us to examine and rethink what we are together, and build the bonds of solidarity and support that will make a better way possible- like in this meme Because in our hearts, we're all curious kids and buff guys on keyboards. Peace. Belated Happy International Men鈥檚 day
Confused, Meme, and Sex: Hi guys, I've noticed that it is
 International Men's Day today, and I'm confused.
 Why do we need a day to talk about men?
 We're not a marginalised group like
 women, queer people, or people of colour
 The media is already full of stories about men
 I'm glad you asked, champ. Whatever your view on
 men's place in society, it's still true that we
 face a lot of issues- like social isolation,
 risk of suicide, health problems, and
 attitudes towards sex and child rearing
 Having a day to talk about those doesn't
 take away from anyone else's problems.
 In fact, having a day to talk about them helps us
 be more mindful, and listen better at other times
 The chief here is really on to something. I want to
 echo what he said, and also point out that the
 idea we should remain silent about our problems
 actually contributes to a lot of our issues.
 We are human beings, with human needs.
 Seeking mutual support and understanding
 isn't the same thing as placing a burden on others.

 Right on, my fellow kings. We've inherited a social
 legacy of competition and division, and a lot of

 IMD is a chance for us to examine and rethink
 what we are together, and build the bonds of
