Random ramblings from my beer soaked melon about politics, religion, sex, stupidities, nature, and any other subject that penetrates the haze. Sometimes crude and not for the faint of heart or people with normal intelligence, or an abundance of common sense.

BOOBY PRIZE (Reprinted from 8/16/06)
This is a repost because I'm too lazy to come up with another on the subject.

Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.

I have finally found a scientific study that I can get behind, and would not begrudge the tax dollars spent. Wouldn’t you know it was conducted in Germany?
I found an article on the web (stole from some blog) written by Jonathan Hayter. I have no idea where it was published.

In a 5 year study of 200 men (lucky bastards) Dr. Karen Weatherby wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine: “Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well endowed female was roughly the equivalent of a 30 minute aerobics workout.”

They found that those who enjoyed a longing look at busty beauties had lower blood pressure, less heart disease and slower pulse rates compared to those who did not get their daily eyeful. It also showed that engaging in this activity a few minutes a day cuts the risk of a stroke or heart attack in half, and the average man can extend his life four to five years.

It occurs to me that women looking at hot guys must have the same results.

I guess this means that when that woman tells you to stop staring at her boobs she is really telling you to drop dead.

In sad news today the Arlington Texas School Board added an amendment to the student dress code. It reads, in part, the display of cleavage is unacceptable. Low cut blouses, tops, sweaters, etc. with plunging necklines are not allowed.

Granted some of the clothes that are sold today targeted at young women frankly make them look like hookers but I can’t help think that they may have gone too far. They have already in most schools banned hot pants, mini skirts and halter tops.
Frankly if this was happening in the early 70’s when I went to high school I would have almost no incentive to stay in school.

“It’s gotten bad enough that, unfortunately, our young males are looking at more than their English book, their speech book, their science book,” says school board president Sherri Wade. “And, it’s kind of nice to have something left to the imagination.”

I think this might be another effort to undermine the long term health and fitness of our nation’s youth.

Frances Henson, an Arlington parent said, “I’m thinking that our daughters are growing up a little bit too fast these days.”
Someone should tell her that her parenting ideas are going to cause her daughter to resent her and grow up quicker in spite of her efforts.

Most parents agree with the change while some worry that it could be a challenge to enforce. I agree as it would require male teachers to examine the cleavage of all the female students.

Well, I think I’m going to go and get in my Super Workout! Be back in 10 minutes or so.
