Captain Obvious: Study Confirms Guys Like Hot Chicks

In an apparent attempt to win the coveted ‘Most Worthless Scientific Study of the Year’ Award, a team led by Peter M. Todd of the  cognitive science program at Indiana University, Bloomington has confirmed that men are attracted to hot women, and women are more choosy about their partners.

Based on a huge sample of 26 men and 20 women in Munich, Germany, Todd & crew had the group engage in speed dating sessions, recording what they would be interested in before the sessions, and comparing who they actually chose to ask for second dates to those interests.  Not surprisingly, men tended to ignore what traits they said they were looking for, and asked the hot girls for a second date.

Let’s see, weak sample size limited to one geographic region and incredibly flawed technique of gathering data (nothing like spending 3-7 minutes with someone to decide if you’d like to try to get in their pants) to scientifically determine something that could just as conclusively be be determined by going to the local campus bar on Friday night?

Are we sure that this study wasn’t somehow concocted to keep some of their basketball team eligible this year?
