While the iconic sitcom Friends was never a favorite of mine, whenever the reruns come on TV I do get a chuckle. Don’t we all?
One of the funnier episodes, “The One With The List,” comes early in the show, in the second season, where Ross has to make the almost impossible decision between Julie, his current girlfriend, and Rachel, his longtime secret crush, who, he’s just found out, also has a secret crush on him. (Oh, the drama.)
Ever the problem-solver, Ross decides to make a list of Rachel and Julie’s respective pros and cons. Rachel has lots of cons: too into her looks, thick ankles, and “just a waitress.”
Julie has plenty of pros: smart, driven, a paleontologist, and cute. She has only one con: “She’s not Rachel.”
Unfortunately for Ross (but hardly surprisingly), he soon finds himself without either girl – but with a very important life lesson learned: don’t make lists about who to date. (Or, you know, don’t live in a sitcom.)
In the spirit of that episode, I present to you my latest Bitcoin installment: “The One With The List.”
