The dining dead.

In Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Jim Carrey's character looks around a restaurant, and seeing a bunch of bored couples, asks Kate Winslet's character: "Are we like couples you see in restaurants? Are we the dining dead?" We've all seen them, and all feared to be them, even as we know that spend enough time with the same person and you're bound to have a dead dinner or four. Slate runs this slideshow of bored couples, and isn't it striking that, for the most part, they all look, well, dead.
