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?
