Birds and Bees, Men and Women

What an odd weekend…Earth Day celebrations abounded…
Cheryl Crow suggested that we can all stave off global warming by reducing our toilet tissue usage to one square per sitting.

What’s she going to do with that idea—wipe out global warming?

That's right up there with the strange shortage of honeybees being attributed to cell phones…and the British believe the explosion of WiFi useage could result in health hazards.

A study in Finland recently found that people who have used mobiles for more than ten years are 40 per cent more likely to get a brain tumor on the same side of the head as they hold their handset.
The Swedes have research suggesting the risk is almost four times as great, that the radiation kills off brain cells, which could lead to today's younger generation going senile in their forties and fifties.

Professor Lawrie Challis, who heads the UK’s official mobile safety research, this year said that the mobile phone could turn out to be "the cigarette of the 21st century".

Then there was the study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry which revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

For example: If she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she is menstruating, or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest while he is on fire.
No further studies are expected; any questions?
