This scene has always reminded me of an old, poor, rundown part of a Mediterranean village. Or maybe the backside of Venice.
I suspect it's a multi-million dollar Manly view.

Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters

July 15th, 2007 - chosen as a TWTWTW article

Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters
- all in capital growed-up letters because it's the title of a "to be published in September" book*

The key points to note follow and ... oh, you can read more at the Psychology Today site - I tell you, the things people read and then forward to me, you'd not believe it sometimes.

I have added my own non-inflammatory remarks to help you along with the discussions you'll want to have with your spouses, partner(s), work colleagues, Mothers group and the person reading over your shoulder!
  1. Men like blond bombshells (and women want to look like them)
    I don't. I am a man. Not all women want to look like them. ... Or am I just kidding myself?
  2. Humans are naturally polygamous
    I have the scars and bruises to prove that this is both a truism and patently a lie!
  3. Most women benefit from polygyny, while most men benefit from monogamy
    I'd heard this one before ... and I'm probably convinced. If so, however, how do committed lesbian relationships survive?
  4. Most suicide bombers are Muslim
    Ooooh, come on - what about those nice American lads popping around Bagdhad in their tin tanks, that's gotta be close to suicide on most days. And, I saw Byron Keller send a pass to Dan Carter that I thought was total suicide and I ain't seen him wearing a towel on his head.
  5. Having sons reduces the likelihood of divorce
    Less monthly stress? I dunno, just being annoying in my attempt at wit aren't I. Less fights because of the toilet seat situation? Less bills for toilet paper? What!? I'm just asking!
  6. Beautiful people have more daughters
    We do ... I have ... oh, one. Which is more than nearly everyone I know so nar-nar-nar!
  7. What Bill Gates and Paul McCartney have in common with criminals
    Fuck, this didn't take a psychology book did it? Bill Gates + Windows; Paul McCartney - John Lennon - it's just criminal M'Lud and the case for the prosecution rests.
  8. The midlife crisis is a myth—sort of
    Ha ha ha ha ha - well it comes around 45-50 for a start which would mean we'd have to live until 90-100 ... which most don't! Aha!
  9. It's natural for politicians to risk everything for an affair (but only if they're male)
    See point 1.
  10. Men sexually harass women because they are not sexist
    ... .... .. ? .... .. ! ..... .... ?? ... Oh, um ... becau ... .... nope, beat me!
