The Science of Large Breasts, and Other Evolutionary Verities

Hey, don't blame me, I'm just posting a pointer to this interesting story over that the ever-legitimate Freakonomics Blog.

The depths to which people will sink to get certain words and images on their blogs, it's just outragous. Shameful.

Check out this post from the always respectable Freakonomics Blog:
"I blogged nearly a year ago about a study by the evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa which argued that beautiful women sometimes marry unattractive men because of the following supply/demand gap: there are simply more good-looking women than there are good-looking men. One reason, Kanazawa said, is that beauty is a more valuable trait for a female, and is therefore accentuated in females via natural selection. Kanazawa and Alan Miller have now co-authored a book called Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters: From Dating, Shopping, and Praying to Going to War and Becoming a Billionaire β€” Two Evolutionary Psychologists Explain Why We Do What We Do, to be published in September.
