Lonely men ought to flaunt their copies of New Scientist. Women looking for both one-night stands and long-term relationships go for geniuses over dumb jocks, according to a new study of hundreds of university students.

More than 200 women watched a series of videos before rating each man's intelligence, attractiveness, creativity and appeal for a short-term or long-term relationship. Women proved to be decent judges of intelligence, with their scores generally matching each man's intelligence test results.

Hey, a text rebus... now let's see, replace "chicks" with "hand", "Hot" with "my" and "college" with "right".


There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I sure wish I'd gone to your college....


All right, sweethearts, what are you waiting for? Breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the corps! A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm. Every meal's a banquet! Every paycheck a fortune! Every formation a parade! I LOVE the corps!

I certainly wouldn't say "every single time" at all, but don't underestimate what possession of a Porsche can do for a geeky 22 year old.

I've seen it with my own eyes many times. Where I grew up there was this filthy rich little town called Saratoga which was surrounded by mostly middle and lower middle class areas.

Those Porsche driving nerdy guys - yeah they were DEFINITELY getting girls as hot as any jocks.

We'll probably really anger the few girls of SimHQ with this.

All I can say is hey, you girls aren't like the masses, you're above that crap.

I hope they believe me, and I have no doubt the believe in themselves (ok to go back to regular male judgment what girl doesn't believe in herself lol???)

But it's a fact - have more money, have more female companionship. Of any kind.

That was kind of my point. In high school, the jocks got most of the women and the nerd got teased. After high school, the nerd was looked at as a better provider and tends to get the women.

Actually, it's self confidence that matters.

But on a temp "hook up" the good looking athletic guy that at ease with himself beats the nerdy guy with the same demeaner.

I really do agree that confidence is the deciding factor. When you are at ease with yourself it really helps. However, perhaps with the same level of confidence the athlete and the brainiac have fundamentally different approaches, and then it may depend on the type of female in how that approach is responded too. I'm sure we all remember that video of Guido beach on the Jersey Shore? No doubt who would win there with the girls being interviewed.
