Patrick Markey of Villanova University has published a study in Evolution and Human Behavior concerning the "challenge hypothesis." The hypothesis goes something like this: when a male wins a fight for a mate, his testosterone goes up and when he looses, it goes down. How did Patrick Markey study it? Among others, he tracked states that voted in the 2008 presidential elections. In the states that voted for Obama, pornography web traffic went up on election night. In those that voted for McCain, pornography traffic went down on election night.
So ladies, if the Congressman you and your husband voted for wins next week, you better knock on the door of your husband's office instead of just barging in...
Great article on how breasts and breast technology is the key to the future of Regenerative Medicine.
Project Prevention is an organization that pays drug addicts cash to get sterilized. Although some skeptics claim it is immoral and a stepping stone to eugenics, it is totally voluntary. Why let pregnancy get in the way of a coke addiction?
Article parodies science articles by writing article about science articles using all the tricks science articles use. Huh??10/01/10
This is for Frank and Gianmarc. Here is a funny article that uses all the stereotypical templates that science articles use to write about bad science, bad research or boring topics. Excerpt:
I will preface them with "it is believed" or "scientists think" to avoid giving the impression of passing any sort of personal judgement on even the most inane facts.
This fragment will be put on its own line for no obvious reason.
In this paragraph I will reference or quote some minor celebrity, historical figure, eccentric, or a group of sufferers; because my editors are ideologically committed to the idea that all news stories need a "human interest", and I'm not convinced that the scientists are interesting enough.

We've been eating genetically modified (GM) vegetables for years so I don't really have a problem with eating GM fish. These alarmists that make a big deal out of it are the same people that say it's also dangerous to irradiate food. Of course, people have been irradiating food ever since the discovery of fire (infrared).
The world's koala population is being ravaged by Chlamydia.
So...those repressed childhood memories of the priest molesting you in the confessional? Yeah, you made them up (or your psychologist did). Turns out that traumatic events like being sexually assaulted are actually made STRONGER by the trauma, rather than the folklore idea of them being buried. It makes sense. Some of my strongest memories are the worst memories from my past: first time I was beaten up, when my ex cheated on me, the time Bailey almost died, etc.
So where do those memories come from? Most likely crazy people looking for sympathy or inept psychologists.
Harvard scientists have proven that believing that you are very good, or very evil, imbues you with extraordinary physical endurance. That is why you can't be both a Jedi AND a Sith.
