    Men have two brains, but only enough blood to operate one at a time....

    WTF?:confused: They have male researchers, right? That's the best they can come up with? How then do they explain why some men walk into lamp post when a hot woman walks by even when she takes no notice of him?
    My non-scientific hypothesis is that the guy is too busy imagining what the woman looks like nekkid to function. At least, it is in my case.:p

    Maybe they had hot women around when they were researching so this was the best they could come up with. :p

    IMO this goes in the "s*** I already knew" category.

    Do we really need a study to tell us that?

    This makes sense. The drive to mate supersedes everything else.

    Now, if only the attractive women would immediately respond every time, we men wouldn't have to spend so much time in "reduced cognitives states."

    So true. :p

    And if I were young, single and trying to talk to the OP, I'm afraid that I would have no mind. :eek: :D

    "+1" as they say.

    Its surprising the stuff that researchers study. I can't believe universities would waste their funds on such research.

    And this is news?!! This has been the case since time started.

    Please exercise your power, miss anjinhamarota. Try making eye contact with a stranger. You will own them. I have no doubts in your ability.

    ITs not suprising considering the fact that for some geeks this is the only way to meet beautiful women, sponsored by academy:D

    Self-deprecating humor never goes out of style (but I'm sure it's not true in this case)

    I don't know about anyone else, but I can withstand a pretty face. What makes my brains change gears (from large to small) is deep and/or impressive cleavage. I guess it doesn't help that I can tall (6'3") and have a great view. It's difficult to concentrate when great effort is being expended to keep from even glancing at something on prominent display.

    Must have been fun doing that experiment! Everyone study I've done was "That coffee you just drank was laced with uranium, are you still breathing?"... (I kid...)

    I'm very firmly (ahem) in this category. On a few occasions I've been approached by attractive girls in a nightclub or pub, and my mind just went blank. Completely blank, what I wouldn't have given for a little tumbleweed..

    I've even learnt Spanish (almost fluent) and Portuguese (improving) because I love Latin women so much, but every time I meet one my brain kicks into neutral.. what a waste of time and money. :p

    Sigh... It's tough being a guy..
