It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world (reason #888,888)

Study: Strippers Make More in Tips When Most 'Fertile'
A new study from the University of New Mexico found that, on average, strippers make the most money in tips during the most “fertile” days of their monthly cycles, Psychology Today reports.

Dancers made about $70 an hour during their peak period of fertility, versus about $35 while menstruating and $50 in between. Researchers attributed the fluctuation in tips to the changes in body odor, waist-to-hip ratio, and facial features that occur throughout a woman's cycle.

If anybody, ANYBODY, can offer me a reasonable explanation as to why this study needed to be conducted in the first place, and just exactly how it is suppose to benefit mankind, I will give you a $70 tip, no matter how bad you might stink. (that these researchers are completely insane, along with university officials who gave the go ahead, will not be accepted for an answer, that is simply too obvious)

And people wonder why I say an awful lot of professors are very, very, very lonely people. :^)

I took a look at that article too; no sample sizes or anything. It's one that should have hit the circular file, along with the careers of its authors.

Sad to say, someone probably got their Ph.D. for this. Your little ones may have the opportunity to learn from them in college.

i've read, long time ago, that men are more atracted to women during there peak times, and vice versa, that an ovulating woman feels more amorous.
something about chemicals in the body emitted during breeding times.

i suspect that we are not as far removed from the animal kingdom as we would like to believe.

but, i think we need another survey.
maybe, the strippers pay extra attention to the tippers during this time?
not just cause and effect, but cause and effect and effect.

we need another survey to see if this hold true for hookers as well.

i'll be willing to report for duty as part of the survey team. its the least i can do help advance science in the service of mankind.
