← Mathematics: stupid and clever questions for people who understand

What is the minimum distance from which you begin to feel threatened when:

1) A shady looking person stands next to you in a)the supermarket? b) an empty street on a dark night?

2) A same sex individual who looks like a perfect specimen is in the same room as you a) in the toilet? b) when you are stood with your partner? c) when you are looking at someone you are attracted to?

In view of the above and other similar questions, what can be said about the mathematics of your emotional measurements?

P.S. Do we also have religious measurements that we need to consider?
