Think You're Smart?

According th the Associated Press, a recent study of bats determined there is a link between promiscuity, the size of the male brain and the size of the male testes. Basically, the more promiscuous the larger the testes and smaller the brain. (Stop laughing ladies, the promiscuity factor is based on female, not male bats.)

The study indicates that there may be a trade off between sexual prowess and the size of the brain (intelligence?). Doesn't sound good for JG and ()...or at least for their DW's.

Makes you wonder about Batman....oh yeah, Robin.

Re: Think You're Smart?

Does the study say where I can trade in some of this intelligence for a credit?

So, being called a pea brain might be a good thing?

Re: Think You're Smart?

Them there IQ tests must be pretty faulty. Or maybe they dont measure intelligence so much as how good you are at answering certain test questions.

Or that correlation doesnt carry over into people. You couldnt knock the perpetual smile off of Mrs. Cute Fuzzy Bunny's face with a stick.

Come to think of it though, she smiles more when I wash the dishes.
