Today’s BS study brought to you by Askmen.com!
So much for the idea that gentlemen prefer blondes. A new study by the University of Westminster in the UK and the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology indicates that while blondes may get more attention, men are more attracted to brunettes.
Researchers ran an experiment in which they dispatched a woman to three different nightclubs in London with her hair dyed three different colors: brunette, blond and red. With blond hair, she received the most attention with men hitting on her at a higher rate, but when 130 men were polled to determine which woman they preferred, the brunette was rated the highest for not only attractiveness but also intelligence. (Insert your blonde jokes here.)
Blondes are more capable of capturing the attention of the room, but the results indicate that guys gave a better rating to the girl-next-door type. Maybe we just don’t take blondes as seriously.
When it comes to settling down long term, do you think higher of brunettes and lesser of the perfect platinum blondes?
Wait a second, what happened to the redhead?! No one approached her at all?
And why are we sterotyping people’s personalities based on hair color?
Do you hit on girls based on some superficial ideal trait like a good dye job? Comment below!
AND JUST TRY AND TELL ME YOU DON’T WANT A PIECE OF THAT!
Friday, Jan. 6 marks the start of the 2012 Girl Scout Cookie Program. A time innocent looking children who just happen to also be master manipulators will successfully sell over 200 million boxes of cookies to unsuspecting locals.. who end up spending their hard-earned income on devil cookies.
Being the 100th year, they’ve also created a new cookie: Savannah Smiles.
And @*!&^! if that lemon wedge coated in powdered sugar doesn’t look delicious.
In the spirit of the season, here’s four reasons why I hate the Girl Scouts.
Questionable Sales Tactics: They know they are adorable, and they try and utilize this cuteness to ensnare you and your wallet.. as soon as you leave a grocery store, you’re bombarded by cherub cheeked children screaming at you. Girl Scouts are like the homeless only with more strategy.. and generally better hygiene.
And what about the kids of the people you know? Like say, your boss? How do you say no to that? I always end up buying a bunch of boxes of Tagalongs that tend to tag-along on my @*& until the next cookie season.
They Can’t Break Your Twenty: Has anyone else noticed the Girl Scouts never have change? So if you really want that box of Caramel Delights.. you’re now going to have to buy $20 worth. Well played GS.
It doesn’t matter that you just saw them accept a handful of singles, these scouts are ruthless in this no change policy. And their parents will just shake their heads as if to indicate they are not responsible for the shameless hustlers their spawn have become. This no change scam has been going on for years.
Pricing Scams: Save 50 cents when you buy a box outside city limits? I’ve paid $3.50 – $4 for Thin Mints depending on what part of Houston I am in. What is with the price gouging? Are the mini master manipulaters trying to rip-off naive city dwelling customers?
Just in case it’s not totally obvious, this blog is a joke. I do not condone hating children (openly). I am well aware that the Girl Scouts organization is a wonderful socialization group for little girls and promotes healthy development.
And yes, I will buy your @(*%*# cookies. Why? Because they are delicious and I am weak.
How do you feel about cookie time?
If any show should get a comeback in 2012, it should be this one. Remember “Blind Date,” that awkward ’90s dating show featuring mean and snarky pop-up commentary? Yeah, watch this little gem featuring regular Ken Scalir.
It’s like the best worst blind date ever reduced to just
Geeze, Ken just can’t catch a break. And can someone explain to me why is Sherry wearing a nightgown?
What old show would you want to see back on tv?
After hours of tirelessly scouring the web, I have found your answer to quite possibly one of the biggest mysteries of our generation.
Okay, okay. YES. I have been the biggest skeptic over this whole pregnancy deal, but check that photo. Either she’s been eating nothing but Big Mac’s.. or she’s actually pregnant.
AND unless you plan on sleeping in front of St. Luke’s to be the first to get the news, let this site help keep you up-to-date on Bey and her
Happy New Year!
I’ll just come out and say it– I don’t like New Years Eve. This pretty much sums up my feelings for the night:
Look familiar? That’s right, it’s how you’ve spent every New Years Eve since you were able to embibe legally. Though you are pretty much guaranteed to make out with a random stranger.. which the poster fails to mention.
I haven’t seen the celeb orgy that is “New Years Eve” but one line from the previews stuck with me.. pre Ashton Kutcher molesting that Glee girl in the elevator he says, “New Year’s is the worst holiday to go out on. People who don’t drink, don’t party all year, suddenly going all Kanye on you.”
And he’s right. It’s like those people who only go to church on Christmas and Easter. Homebodies feel obligated to go out and ring in a new year with a bunch of strangers packed into a tiny bar like sardines. Because who wouldn’t?!
Now yes, as I’m writing this, I know full well that I will be braving the crowds on New Years Eve somewhere on Northgate.. but it doesn’t change my mind about the whole night.
So, are the crowds and drama just part of what make New Years Eve fun? Or do you prefer a much smaller (but not necessarily quieter) evening with friends?
