BABY I JUST CURED CANCER… NOW WILL YOU GO OUT WITH ME?
I just found this article about a new study from New Scientist magazine. Rather than re-hash it, I’ve quoted a portion of it:
Geniuses and criminals may not seem to have much in common but they both do their best work in their 30s — and mainly to impress the opposite sex.
When Satoshi Kanazawa, of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, studied biographies of prominent, mostly male scientists he discovered that they made their key discovery before their mid 30s, around the same age that criminal behavior peaks.
He believes the male competitive urge to attract females is a driving force for the scientific and criminal achievements, according to New Scientist magazine.
“They do whatever they do in order to get laid,” said Kanazawa.
Wow. So that’s why I’m in grad school. Must… discover… how to… breed… cats… with… dogs… soon…
