Ok, now, look at the story highlights section on the top of the page for this quote:

Men: Brain areas linked with handling tools respond to images of women in bikinis

Please tell me the CNN copywriter understood the potential of the phrase "handling tools". Please tell me.

And this one's in the text!

New research shows that, in men, the brain areas associated with handling tools and the intention to perform actions light up when viewing images of women in bikinis.

Cosmic Sher (sherart) | 2234 comments Well duh. This rates right up there with the study they did to see if lesbians had less children than married hetero women. *rolls eyes*

Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments They needed to do a STUDY on that, Sherrie? Why? Whyyyy???

Félix (habitseven) Well, you know ... lesbian women can (and quite often do) have children.

Ridgid Tool company is smart when they put their sexy calendars in repair shops.

Seriously. My brain hurts just thinking about all the research that wasn't getting done while these men were applying electrodes and showing dudes alternatively pictures of bikini babes or chainsaws.

message 7: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) And you think that wasn't important research?

message 8: by Cosmic Sher (new)

Cosmic Sher (sherart) | 2234 comments Yea, seriously. I can't find it now since it was a few years ago, but they put (what I think) an enormous amount of money to see if hetero women have more kids than lesbians. This is my definition of 'tarded.

I just love where our money is being spent. Meanwhile, we still have cancers, AIDS/HIV, diabetes, MS, arthritis and the list goes on. Makes you want to strangle people, doesn't it?

Lori ARgH!

Altho I did get a chuckle out of the "tool" usage.

Cosmic Sher (sherart) | 2234 comments Wow. For some reason my computer really doesn't like your picture. It's not porn is it? (dangit)

message 15: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Here's a link. No, it's not porn. I never look at porn.:)


message 16: by Lori (new)

Lori Yeah, I'm getting the gray rectangle thing too, blocking the image behind it.

message 18: by Lori (new)

Lori Wow, it's still being blocked! How strange. Did I put in some parental controls on my computer?
