Women Are Getting More Beautiful…

…while men continue running afoul of the ugly stick, or so sayeth the experts in this article.

The silver lining for men is that, apparently, women place less value on physical appearance than men do, looking, instead, for someone who is able to provide protection and security (good thing for me!)

Oh, and I’m sure you all will be glad to learn that this great scientific mystery has been solved.

Robert Heinlein once said that the majority of "scientists" were button sorters and bottle washers. Those two articles alone confirm the awful truth of his statement.

Somehow, JeffS, the word scientists in quotation marks means it really has become one scary word. It also means that if the term is used anywhere in the media or spoken by any politician, I have to go check credentials.

KC, I work in an organization that includes scientists and engineers on its payroll. Or at least they claim to be scientists and engineers. I question that.

And there are times when I want to rip up my college transcripts, and pretend the best I ever did was a GED.

Because one can comment from one's iPod touch, without showing off. Really, not showing off at all.

Bull crap. Women just have different markers for physical beauty, not fewer.

Hogwash. If arm swinging boosts the metabolism, how do they explain bat wings, huh?
