A comment at SB's public blog:
The attractiveness of a low waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) is generally due to it being an indicator of health and fertility, but this new research offers a possible additional factor, that low WHR also indicates high cognitive ability. So, yep, the study suggests that curvy girls are likely to be smart and produce smart children, and this increased smartness is possibly what makes the curves attractive to men. It's to do with the difference in upper bopdy fat and lower body fat supplying the particular kind of fatty acid that's essential for brain development.
I now have an excuse to letch after a nice arse--I'm checking out her likely mental capacity as well.

OK, I didn't have this excuse before, and it's never stopped me, but, y'know, skience on my side now. There are a lot of very smart women on my blog reading list, this is good. I'm marrying one of them. This is even better.

Oh, rest of the post and comments is worth a read over as well. I have another, different follow up post planned, but that one requires engaging my brain, which isn't working today, sorry...

Does my brain look big in this?

my ratio is 0.74, therefore i suggest possibly that I am more likely to have not no chance of pulling intelligent men. According to 7 out of 5 pipe smokers.

Hoo! So all along, we arse-fanciers have really been assessing (pun!) the cerebral qualities of the fairer sex by gazing longingly at their fabulous backsides? Now it all makes sense! :D
