McGibbon assembled his Super Tuesday portfolio this weekend. “I think I’m going to do pretty well,” he says. “Trump has been—well politically I’m very worried, but with the market I’m hedged.

For instance, women usually require a kiss to feel intimate with another person, whereas men are more willing to forgo the first kiss and go straight for sex.
