    T'was the fat lady that got men drooling. She was rich obviously and a thus a sign of beauty and desire in these days. Today, we're all fat so its the opposite!

    "London School of Economics reader Satoshi Kanazawa has successfully manipulated the more malleable and shameless news outlets into excitedly regurgitating the provocative theories contained in his book"

    Yes, the Author fell for it too, I met a bloke in the pub who said that all women get turned on by goats, but only the good looking goats, thereby attaining the same credibility as Mr. Kanazawa.

    Maybe the author would like to interview him for his valued opinion? If so he may be contacted via

    Psychiatrists are 'trick-cyclists'. But also psychologists, according to Lewis who decrees these things.

    Who profits?

    What we need to know is who paid him for this 'science' fluff piece. With an article like this from a rent-a-scientist you'll probably find it was Mattel or some dating website.

    Blonde hair is an indicator of high levels of oestrogen in a woman, thereby 'displaying' that she is more fertile than non-blondes, so is a genetic sign post for breedy stuff

    As long as...

    ...the eyebrows move slightly & the boobs wobble a little bcoz the other end of the bootie is an untouchable dream illusion that once seen close up is unwanted...

    because it makes men want to impregnate them

    Yeah.. good luck finding a woman that wants to be impregnated, let alone go for a drink without strings attached....

    Typical "academic" research: finding out stuff that means fuckall to people with brains.

    Yes, but

    ...surely this would lead to a divergence of beauties and beasts as hotties get together to produce more hotties and beasts get together to produce devil children. The human race will then be split into two halves and will never become one!

    Paris, I guess she's a beauty... although I'm unsure which half of the race would rule?
