Those damned studies

What's Mallard raving about today?


We're back to this again?

Since Mallard's already covered this ground, and since it is a topic that barely needed to be mentioned once, let alone twice...I am going to satisfy myself by just pointing out that Mallard does not understand the use of quotation marks, placing them around both "funding" and "study."

Once again, Tinman attacks education, proving he hates people who read books and consider issues instead of spewing dogma.

He probably like Born in the USA until he read the lyrics.

Wow, the writers in liberal ol' Hollywood (makers of Red Dawn and United 93) just authorized a strike, but Bruce Tinsley's already feeding us reruns.

Nice catch on the excessive quotation marks, DaveyK. "Study" is fine, as it suggests phoniness in something he wants to mock--but "funding?" Does Tin-Tins think Monopoly money is involved?

All fear Bruce Tinsley, for he shall unleash the full wit and wisdom of Ralph Wiggum upon thee: "Me fail English? That unpossible!"

God-damn what a hack. I'm not one myself, but I've seen plenty of cartoonists with more ideas and talent than all of Tinman's best days put together and they can't get syndication. Where's the justice? There should be a MF cartoon in that.

Quite frankly, that drunken unshaven guy who sat next to generic-you on the bus the other day and insisted on sharing his personal reality with you* is about as deserving as Tinny of a presence in 400 newspapers nationwide. (Come to think of it, there's not much to choose between the two, besides the fact that Tinny dresses better and the bum at least comes up with his own damn hallucinations rather than having them spoon-fed to him by the Combine's fog machine.)

* "Hullo, lady. There's people from Venus beaming sexy pictures into my mind. I don't sleep anymore. Nobody will spy for me. Where are the snows of bloody yesteryear, eh?"

You know what's great about this? Tinsley himself went to Indiana University.
Why do I think he was one of the College Republicans who always got drunk, made prank phone calls to minority students, and never got laid?

The study in question according to Fox:

Men like attractive women.

The actual study in question:

"...the study, which was published in Tuesday’s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, studied 26 men and 20 women in Munich, Germany, who participated in speed dating. Before the study, participants filled out a questionnaire about what they were looking for in a date. After “speed dating” each other, participants said who they’d like to see again."

"...It found that men’s choices were different than the qualities they originally said they wanted in a mate. It also said that men chose almost every woman who was above a certain level of attractiveness."

BOOM. The actual conclusion is that the men studied actually LIED about the qualities they wanted in a woman, and went for pure attractiveness over the qualities they listed as wanting in a mate.

Oh, and
"The study was supported by the Max Planck Society, Germany's national science foundation."

Hell, Mallard, you didn't pay for it and neither did any IU students. The GERMANS paid for it. It's their cash, they want to study the negative impact of media image on women and potential relationships, they're free to do so.
