    Women dress up when fertile

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Women dress to impress when they are at their most fertile, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday in a study they say shows that signs of human ovulation may not be as mysterious as some scientists believe.

    A study of young college women showed they frequently wore more fashionable or flashier clothing and jewelry when they were ovulating, as assessed by a panel of men and women looking at their photographs.

    "They tend to put on skirts instead of pants, show more skin and generally dress more fashionably," said Martie Haselton, a communication studies and psychology expert at the University of California Los Angeles who led the study.

    Writing in the journal Hormones and Behavior, Haselton and colleagues said their findings disproved the conventional wisdom that women are unique among animals in concealing, even from themselves, when they are most fertile.

    Some animals release powerful scents when ready to mate, while others display skin color changes, but human ovulation is notoriously difficult to detect. This is attested to by the frequency of unintended pregnancy, as well as test kits marketed to women wishing to become pregnant but unaware of the likeliest time to conceive.

    Hahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

    And what is a "coochie"?


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    It's funny - not that much of human behavior is that much of a mystery.
    Certainly not male and female behavior.
    Anthropology gives an unbelievably accurate map of how men and women behave.
    All of the issues in this study are simple concepts that were addressed back in the 70's and 80's.

    It's just that we humans now seem so strangely illogical - and we're really not, and wouldn't be - if we still lived in the conditions where our minds were forged.
    We no longer do, this is a modern era filled with technology and agriculture, but our minds still act as if we are stuck in the savannahs.

    A quick example (sorry to be so boring) is that how humans lived for many, many, many generations was without agriculture.
    That's an extremely important concept.
    All the food that is to be eaten that day is obtained that same day by hunting and gathering.
    Food is VERY difficult to come by then and there's no refridgerators or saran wrap - you're going to want to eat foods that will stay in your system for a long time to sustain your life (such as: fats, sugars, things we still love to eat now, but no longer need as much since food isn't hard to come by).

    Now let's say you are a woman back then, you're pregnant, and you need TWICE the calories you usually need, with food still being hard to obtain.
    Can you date a man who is both lazy AND who is bad at hunting?
    Sure you could.......but you'd probably starve.
    Also, look how women act while pregnant - always testing their man's loyalty to see if he'll stick around, and how far he'll go to provide the food that is craved.

    Anyway, the point is we still have scientific reports coming out stating things that have been scientifically known by anthropologists for more than a decade.
    Our human behavior makes complete sense when we understand that we still act as if we're living in the same conditions we did when our brain was being created.

    This is just entry level things to anthropology - I've been studying for about 7 years now, and it becomes more and more intriguing.
    It helped me understand women and their behaviors - it can honestly show how to attract them, and how to keep them attracted.
    Before that, whew, I don't even want to say how hard it was for me with the ladies.
