Guest Post: I <3 Nerds

[ed. note: Occasional EIGN Guest Contributor jg3 has this Good News Wednesday piece for us]

We have long known that the brain is the body's largest sex organ, and knowing how to use it and manipulate it results in superior intercourse. But we were encouraged to learn of a report published by researchers at Elon University shows that women prefer men with brains over brawn. The study covered women seeking one night of nooky and also long term partners. In both cases women preferred minds over muscles. And who can blame them, really?

It is thought that even dumb, hot chicks have the evolutionary wiring to prefer those mates who can provide for their family, the cleverness to make them laugh, and the intelligence to understand that buying a dozen overpriced roses for valentine's day is a crock of shit.

That's not to say that you can quit jogging and just sit in the Science Club and expect a line to form, fatso. All other things being equal (which they never are), attractiveness still wins, but cleverness does go a long way.

Which explains why I always keep my copy of New Scientist open on the floor in front of me while I do my hundredpushups.

And if you do happen to drop the little fact that tomorrow is Charles Darwin's birthday on some sweet lady at the pub tonight and she takes you home for a roll in the hay, you can thank us later.
