First! and I am not even a guy!

M is me. OK you may now laugh at me.

M is me. OK you may now laugh at me.

...and to a lesser extent, women age 30-35.

What?

Nora, Or anything nekked!

The blog has rotted my brain. I read the headline several times as "Snake cues..." instead of "Sex cues..."

Any neo-Freudians out there can just shut up. I prefer to think that I'm understandably conditioned to assume that on the blog, the "S"-word always stands for "snakes."

Betsy,

Look out! There is a sex under your chair!

The researchers are conducting tests to search for a similar effect in women, but have so far failed to find a visual stimulus that alters their decision-making behaviour.

*volunteers to help in further studies*
Bring on the men in sexy clothes. Or lack thereof.

Where do I sign up? Is it close to a mall? Do we get samples?

Me, too, wolfie...

It's noble to do volunteer to advance scientific research.

(you can remove the *do*)

Thank you.

Daisy,

I feel noble already. When do we get lunch?

>> a ring finger longer than the index finger, is a result of high testosterone

My ring finger is much longer than... ooh! shiny object.

*struts around wolfie, growling gently and gazing intently*

*flexes a little, grunts at effort*

*tries to strut, growl and flex simultaneously*

*falls down. lands on face*

*instead of being turned on, wolfie shakes head and leaves*

SCORE: Male Ineptitude of Breathtaking Scope = 1 ; Women's Decision Making Behavior = 0. Woo!!

Did they try showing women pictures of chocolate? I'm sure that would do it.

And in the middle of the article there's a picture of - UGH - Ann Coulter trying to look sexy.

*pre-emptive apologies to anyone who thought the "UGH" was political*

*snork*

KOW,

Only during certain times...

Two stand up *snorks* to Fed and Nate!

Looks like the women posted well before the boys...maybe the guys were looking for pictures?

Around the corner out of Feds sight....

*fans self and tries to catch breath*
*straightens clothing and attempts to look cool and composed*
*walks into door*
*gives up trying to look cool and runs for empty room for alone time with self and memory of growling flexing of Federal Duck*

*tosses up some cold water to wolfie*

"A glimpse of an alluring woman is all it takes to ruin a man's decision-making skills and the more testosterone coursing through his veins, the worse the problem gets..."

I'm not really sure that I agree with that statement...on the other hand, maybe I do after all...or not...oh, never mind, I think...

wow, wolfie, I'd hate to see what would happen to you if Chloe did that to you!

Well, actually, I WOULD like to see it.

AFKAT - I think someone needs to pull your finger (so it's longer...(

The researchers "have so far failed to find a visual stimulus that alters [women's] decision-making behaviour."

If you want to turn a woman into Homer Simpson, show her a picture of George Clooney. "Mmm...Clooney..."

Annie WBH: Here, pull my finger...*accompanied by friendly but sly grin*

AFKAT....oooh, shiny! (not sure what I mean, but it sounded good)

Did they ask judi?

Actually Annie, neither do I...still suffering from post-traumatic shock as a result of filling up my boat this afternoon...it cost me just over $500 *groan*. If you think gas prices have risen in the US, try Canada (Yikes!).

I'm kinda thinking of nailing a few 2x4s together to turn her into a sailboat...

I was gonna write something, but I keep getting distracted by Daisy Fuentes on TV....and trust me, i'm not kidding...

Testosterone levels were gauged by measuring the ratio of the index finger to the ring finger. A low value, suggesting a ring finger longer than the index finger, is a result of high testosterone and is found more commonly in men than women.

Ok, I have 2 daughters. One has longer pointer fingers than ring fingers. My youngest daughter and myself have longer ring fingers than pointer fingers.

Do I want to know what this means?!?

You and your youngest daughter have higher levels of testosterone than... hey look, words on my computer screen.

*Alert...Humour function off*

Actually Southerngirl, the daughter with the longer index (pointer) finger was probably exposed to a higher level of estrogen while in the womb than normal.

Most men have longer ring fingers than index, but many women are in the same situation. It's not an abnormality.

*Humour function back on*

*Alert...Humour function off*

And actually, you may notice a difference in the index/ring ratio between the left & right hands. In my case, for example, the distance between the ring/index finger on my left hand is half that of my right hand (as measured by the middle finger).

*Humour function back on*


It's just another one of God's little jokes. Men are visually stimulated by women. Women are visually stimulated by dessert.

So if I want to be girly, I just grow the nails longer on my pointer fingers! Yay! Oooh, dessert....

AFKAT: What kinda boat you got? I could go in on the gas, if it's worth it.

AFKAT ... I don't get it ...

Lemme see ... if my ring finger is ... um ... nevermind ...

Women are also visually stimulated by sales at shoe stores.

KDF-Oooh yeah, that's a good one!

*and Dave is the other one*

Oh no wait--I got it!

Both men and women are equally flustered by the opposite sex, but when tested, women are just better at faking it!

*There, my work here is done*

Man, LBFF, you're good.

It's all the creative energy generated by my fellow bloglits.

*back a'cha*

*perks*

Shoe sale?

My initial response? "...and Trees are wood". I like "DUH". Succinct.

LBFF - careful - you're giving away secrets. Oooh, look, a shoe sale!

Where's the shoe sale?

*Tries to compare ring vs. index finger.*
*Notices alluring females converging in shoe store*
*Tries to compare.....um.....huh?*

Yeah, WTD?

So ... how's the ratio of ring finger to index finger for Oscar Ramirez?

Si!

The finding is unwelcome confirmation that those most likely to be in a position of power are most susceptible to the subtle influences of the opposite sex.

Um, no - they're just the only ones it gets tried on.

Nothing subtle about the influences of some of the ladies around here!

"The finding is unwelcome confirmation that those most likely to be in a position of power are most susceptible to the subtle influences of the opposite sex."

ask - our CEO couldn't even follow the thought in that sentence. Even if he could, that last word would erase anything he might have retained.

Sorry, Annie. Did you say something?

Was that post by Oscar Ramirez spam?

Siegfried Dewitte ==>
If I see twit, dredge
I digest weird feet
Were I fed, digest it

Bram van den Bergh ==>
Eh, Dr Vern bam Bang?
Bam nerd hang verb

* Shows Oscar Ramirez the finger between the ring and index.*

Begone Spammer.

Blog Spam. It was bound to happen eventually, I guess.

(paraphrased) Line from "Memoirs of a Geisha":
"You are not geisha until you can stop a man in his tracks with a single glance."

EasterCandyT - are you talkin' to ME?

Wait a minute. You mean we men are dstracted by the sight of a nekkid wom
