    Has anyone done a study on the correlation between playing golf socially and higher income? I would think the same factors are present.

    I think both are parts of the "buddy system" that men use to ally themselves to gain power.

    Tall is good, but not essential. My husband is only 5'11".

    Someone actually managed to get a grant to study whether going out drinking with the boys (especially if one of them is your boss) will increase your salary?

    I wonder if anyone has applied for a grant to study the effects of running with scissors?
