    1. Men like blond bombshells (and women want to look like them)
    2. Humans are naturally polygamous
    3. Most women benefit from polygyny, while most men benefit from monogamy
    4. Most suicide bombers are Muslim
    5. Having sons reduces the likelihood of divorce
    6. Beautiful people have more daughters
    7. What Bill Gates and Paul McCartney have in common with criminals
    8. The midlife crisis is a myth—sort of
    9. It's natural for politicians to risk everything for an affair (but only if they're male)
    10. Men sexually harass women because they are not sexist

    I was particularly struck by #5, and would love the "son's" input here, and by #8, since it seems we (women) are not only responsible for our midlife crises by thiers (men's) as well.

    1: blondes are overrated; white guys love asian women

    2: that is why nature made women who live together sync their cycles, to prevent any one harem from becoming too large *scary *

    Most suicide bombers are Muslim
    According to the Oxford University sociologist Diego Gambetta, editor of Making Sense of Suicide Missions, a comprehensive history of this troubling yet topical phenomenon, while suicide missions are not always religiously motivated, when religion is involved, it is always Muslim. Why is this? Why is Islam the only religion that motivates its followers to commit suicide missions?

    The surprising answer from the evolutionary psychological perspective is that Muslim suicide bombing may have nothing to do with Islam or the Koran (except for two lines in it). It may have nothing to do with the religion, politics, the culture, the race, the ethnicity, the language, or the region. As with everything else from this perspective, it may have a lot to do with sex, or, in this case, the absence of sex.

    What distinguishes Islam from other major religions is that it tolerates polygyny. By allowing some men to monopolize all women and altogether excluding many men from reproductive opportunities, polygyny creates shortages of available women. If 50 percent of men have two wives each, then the other 50 percent don't get any wives at all.

    So polygyny increases competitive pressure on men, especially young men of low status. It therefore increases the likelihood that young men resort to violent means to gain access to mates. By doing so, they have little to lose and much to gain compared with men who already have wives. Across all societies, polygyny makes men violent, increasing crimes such as murder and rape, even after controlling for such obvious factors as economic development, economic inequality, population density, the level of democracy, and political factors in the region.

    However, polygyny itself is not a sufficient cause of suicide bombing. Societies in sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean are much more polygynous than the Muslim nations in the Middle East and North Africa. And they do have very high levels of violence. Sub-Saharan Africa suffers from a long history of continuous civil wars—but not suicide bombings.

    The other key ingredient is the promise of 72 virgins waiting in heaven for any martyr in Islam. The prospect of exclusive access to virgins may not be so appealing to anyone who has even one mate on earth, which strict monogamy virtually guarantees. However, the prospect is quite appealing to anyone who faces the bleak reality on earth of being a complete reproductive loser.

    that was an interesting mention...see you are back to the red....

    My goodness.... Bones must have had all leg men to know they're all liars.... And of course, one can buy what one can afford if one doesn't like themselves the way they are.... Just saying', legs are much more practical for the function....

    And you, Ducky, could "rent" a much nicer package with dinner and drinks... :)
