"how about YOU learn form the females? if a guy doesnt want to impress you dont be impressed."

The problem is that some stupid boy will say something like "I hate islanders. they`re drating bad drivers and i hate them."
and then he`ll walk over to this islander girl and say "Hey sexy, want me to buy you a martini?"
Oh yeah, THATS going to get you lucky.

Not quite, floridarocks; I fear much more goes into the scientific process. And this study in particular didn`t involve the human species.

"I always thought it interesting that in the animal kingdom, the female humans are the ones who show off their "sexual ornaments" while the male humans can slack off in baggy jeans and wife beaters and still manage to get a pretty girl...while in the rest of the animal kingdom it`s the MALE of the species that preens and shows off for the females...hey guys, LEARN FROM THEM...not all women go for the slacker type (although there are always exceptions - Britney Spears, for example)..."

"It indicates that the male with the bigger trait had more resources,"

But the Asians totally block out that theory...

We have written language, advanced social structure and tool use, and we own most of the land on the planet.

we may not grow flashy appendages to attract females (some might disagree with that statement) but we`re doing something right.

Interesting. And I doubt any of us among the general population knew this, Ragin2340. It only seems common knowledge after the scientists revealed their findings.
