Blonde women really do make men lose their heads, according to scientists. Tests showed that men performed worse after they were shown pictures of fair-haired women, most likely because they believed they were dealing with someone less.../continued on Telegraph (U.K.)/Performed worse at what, exactly?
I have personal experience. In my late 20's I was smitten upon walking into a venue I was scoping for a gig, and there, across the proverbial 'crowded room' stood a 5'11' blonde that could have easily stepped off the cover of Cosmo. And she was staring at moi.
And she was crazy.
I don't want to go too far past the land of PG13 so I'll just have to express this in a way that a lot of men will understand--crazy monkey sex is even better when the female partner is off her nut.
Then she dug in. For 2 1/2 years. Until she burned my brand new sectional with a dropped cigaret in a drunken stupor. I took her to the hospital at 0400 and called her mother to take over. I was done--the fork was stuck in me.
Then the calls started. 20, 30 a day. For about three months then they stopped.
Last I heard she married a pharmacist in Georgia. With her proclivity for pills and drink I wonder if either survived.
That it! I'm changing my childrens' surname to Aaherne.
Name initials may influence grades: studyFri Nov 16, 11:44 AM ET
NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) - Certain initials may look better than others as monograms but they can also have an impact on how well a person performs in a sport or at school, according to a new study.
Researchers who studied the impact of initials found that baseballs players whose first or last name starts with the letter K, which signifies a strikeout, tended to strike out more often than other players.
And students whose names start with the letters C or D, which denote mediocre marks in some grading systems, did not perform as well as other pupils with different initials.

UN unveils full danger of climate changeJonathan Leake, Science Editor
SCIENTISTS leading global research into climate change have set out a stark vision of how the world will change if humanity fails to tackle surging greenhouse gas emissions.
A report issued yesterday by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) described how a warming world would threaten billions of people with thirst and malnutrition, endanger more than half of wildlife species with extinction and initiate a melting of the Greenland ice cap that could raise global sea levels by more than 22ft.
Such warnings have been heard before but never with so much scientific certainty. The IPCC’s report was based on 29,000 observations taken around the world and published in more than 500 peer-reviewed scientific papers.
Yesterday, Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general, who unveiled the report in Valencia, Spain, said: “All humanity must now assume responsibility for climate change.”
The earth has a fever and now the oceans have heartburn.
I can fix all this, you know.
Aspirin and Alka Seltzer.
And boot the UN and its worthless science.
