Never mind the debunking, PZ!

You and your skeptical attitude go too far sometimes!

According to Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist and author of the study, gawking at women's breasts is a healthy practice, almost at par with an intense exercise regime, that prolongs the lifespan of a man by five years.

She added, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female, is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out."

[Added] PZ's commenters are even more anti-Science.

makes sense to me

I have a few questions. How about women? What do they have to do to get a similar freebie? Should women be getting some kind of reward for offering health advantages to their male acquaintances? Should women be morally obligated to wear low cleavages for the sake of humanity?

Okay, let's accept it. The whole thing is highly unlikely.

Heh. Make sure you click the link in the last line of the post, Ocean.

Meanwhile: this.

Ocean said...

Yes, I had seen that link. But, I couldn't pass the opportunity to comment, just as you felt compelled to post it.

I didn't like that Matt at all. Obnoxious.

Brendan said...

I, like PZ, was initially fooled into thinking it was a real story (of obvious junk science). It wasn't until after I'd published the post that I saw the Snopes link in the comments.

Be nice to Matt!

Ocean said...

About the story, yes, there's always wishful thinking.

In terms of Matt, could you please tell him to dress properly? Besides he already knew the reaction he would get from the ladies.

Okay, okay, we'll give him another chance. ;)

From everything I know about Matt's sartorial leanings, I think it's safe to say he's about as likely to feature that sort of low "neck"line as Donald Trump is to get a crewcut.
