And it’s a big one: Married women gain more weight. Feel free to use this information with discretion in conversations about why you’re not married. Heh.
It’s Thanksgiving week, and I want to do what I can to temporarily stave off the onslaught of Christmas commercialism. Over $400 billion dollars of consumer spending is looming out there, not to mention the success or failure of the entire national economy, and they are determined to have you start yesterday! What are you… Continue reading gratitude is good for you
No, I’m not talking about Charlton Heston. In fact, ABC’s Nightline recently launched a series on The Ten Commandments. The perspectives are remarkably balanced, though rather than going through the commandments chronologically, they opted to start with #7 – thou shalt not commit adultery – obviously a “sexier” way to kick off a new series.… Continue reading tv & the 10 commandments
Science says so. Or… at least that’s how I read it. Though it’s possible that what science actually said was something more like, “eating it two or more times per week reduces the risk of dying from heart disease in heart attack survivors.” Well. “Eating chocolate reduces risk” (right there in plain English) is enough… Continue reading Eating Chocolate Prevents Death
A scientific study has determined that chasing younger women is good for men. Next, expect forthcoming studies to show that men chasing younger women can completely reverse the economic downturn, as well as stop global warming.
Almost a year ago, a study was released which found that women spend 3,276 hours of their lives getting ready – about four and a half months. Now, another study has provided valuable perspective on why that’s necessary: Men spend almost a year of their lives ogling women.

In fact, researchers concluded… Continue reading the science of conscience
No big surprise here, we try to look attractive because we’re afraid of being rejected. In case for some reason you didn’t know that, they conducted a scientific study to prove it. Frankly, I’m pretty sure anyone who’s older than the 5th grade has figured out the whole correlation thing between attractiveness and rejection, but… Continue reading why we try to look attractive
Science has discovered a powerful new weapon that can help us “fight illness and depression, speed recovery, slow aging and prolong life.” That weapon is simply our friends. The New York Times reports that research is only just beginning to understand the impact our friendships and social networks have on our overall health. “A 10-year… Continue reading the hill is not as steep
Okay, so I only lasted a little more than a week without commenting on a scientific study. I simply could not pass this one by: Humans May be Primed to Believe in Creation. I think I’ve never seen an article unwittingly provide so many arguments against itself that it gets tied up in illogical knots… Continue reading self-refuting science findings
