Shocker: scientists are not getting laid

An Australian study found that men who study science in University are less likely to get laid. It found science ‘nerds’ were more likely to be doing homework and far less likely to go to parties and bars. As a general rule, I hate garbage studies that only reinforce the stereotype science is somehow unhip, uncool, and something only nerds do. I’m sure there’s a similar correlation between level of education and frequency of fornication, but what exactly does this prove? Not to be a nitpicker, but did the reporter in this story really have to call science students nerds? Might as well start calling anyone with a college degree an elitist.

Here’s the way I see it: getting laid is great and a lot of fun, but science is a pretty serious field of study, and unlike most yahoos who phone in their work, dedicating your life to science means you can’t go to as many parties as the guys who are studying for their MBAs. So while some guys are working on their ‘macking’ skills, some science nerd is unlocking the secrets of the universe. Who’s the bigger stud here?

    I’m not a science major (English and French studies are my passion but considered equally nerdy by some) but my friends who are science majors certainly do not have any dysfunction in the love department. Sure, they might doing research until 3AM, sometimes sleeping in the labs to watch their experiments, but they do it because they’re dedicated. And when they contribute fantastic advances to society, who will be the better person? They might be “nerds”, but I love science and appreciate the people who are willing to dedicate themselves to it. That’s the stud I’m interested in. But what do I know? I’m just a nerd, too.

    Personally, I get more with each degree! :)~

    Wait a minute, I thought religious adherence was supposed to be the causal factor for not getting any nookie before marriage!

    It would be interesting to see the theism distribution among the participants!l
