Last week I was having lunch with a girl friend and we somehow ended up on the topic of romance and the current dating scene.The radiocarbon dating method is based on the fact that radiocarbon is constantly being created in the atmosphere by the interaction of cosmic rays with atmospheric nitrogen.The resulting radiocarbon combines with atmospheric oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide, which is incorporated into plants by photosynthesis; animals then acquire in a sample from a dead plant or animal such as a piece of wood or a fragment of bone provides information that can be used to calculate when the animal or plant died.By the end of lunch, we reached the conclusion that romance is pretty much dead.I was devastated at the thought, but I think we're right.
