    Nooks of Nostalgia 

    Sometimes you bump into the ruins of a website – something you remember was mind-blowing awesome, yet now stands frozen in time like an old black and white picture. Beyond the WayBack Machine, I’m talking about real sites still online that got stuck in time. My favorite such site is:

    Scientific Fact: Ovulating Lap Dancers Make More Monies 

    Here’s a piece of scientific research that left me a bit puzzled… And kinda horny.


    To see whether estrus was really “lost” during human evolution (as researchers often claim), we examined ovulatory cycle effects on tip earnings by professional lap dancers working in gentlemen’s clubs. Eighteen dancers recorded their menstrual periods, work shifts, and tip earnings for 60 days on a study web site. A mixed-model analysis of 296 work shifts (representing about 5300 lap dances) showed an interaction between cycle phase and hormonal contraception use. Normally cycling participants earned about US$335 per 5-h shift during estrus, US$260 per shift during the luteal phase, and US$185 per shift during menstruation. By contrast, participants using contraceptive pills showed no estrous earnings peak. These results constitute the first direct economic evidence for the existence and importance of estrus in contemporary human females, in a real-world work setting. These results have clear implications for human evolution, sexuality, and economics.

    Skechers and FTC settle on $40 Million 

    Its nice to know the FTC isn’t just chasing bloggers.

    Skechers is about to pony up $40 Million to settle FTC charges that it claimed (unsubstantiated) their shoes would make you lose weight, increase heart health, get stronger and longer erections, grow hair, increase breast size and even whiten your teeth if you rub the insole against your gums.

    Now really dear old pal’FTC… How about turning the old death ray at the beauty and cosmetics industry?
