Entirely made up, or was the scent research real?

B-unit,

The way they do research on scents is real (AFAIK). Also, the facts about smells and their affects on attraction are real. However, no, there was no research on the scent of Anti-Static bags or mountain dew :)

well the smell thing is real and has some effects - thats why we all mask our stench with deodorant etc

oh and my dad used to work in exchanges all day and did always smell the same like electrical etc - doubt it makes any difference smelling nerdy etc

Right... It has nothing to do with the test being conducted in Berkley, the only place in the world that lives in it's own Universe.

Now that would be a better study. "Why Berkley is stuck up"

I expect stuff like this on April 1st, where it's appropriate. But, May 23rd, Memorial Day Weekend? Since when did Tom's turn into a nerd herd joke website?

I thought this was a tech/hardware news website...

[citation][nom]knightmike[/nom]Yes! I knew wearing an anti-static bag over my junk would pay off one day![/citation]
Hahahaha.... Don't get too close to your speakers with that thing. Don't want it to get adversely pulled down by magnetism. ;)

Lighten up people, it was just good fun!

I know what women want. They want a man that is confident in him self and is not under endowed and knows how to make them laugh and (uhhem) feel and of course if she has brains, has his life together. I liked this article because I thought it was funny and I'm bored at work for twelve hours.

Anyone who thinks women are not attracted to muscle is a fool. Having been both skinny and later a bodybuilder, there is NO comparison. Girls are much more upfront about it than guys too, so it's not a big mystery.

Obviously, you have to build muscle properly, and not be asymmetric, or have bad proportions. A barrel chest, big waist, and poor proportions probably will not work even with a lot of muscle. But, if you build properly, the geeks have no chance. Well, for most women. I did date one girl that said she didn't like muscular guys because they made her feel too small, so obviously there are exceptions. But as a rule, the difference is dramatic. It's not even subtle, because women are not subtle about it.

This study does not disprove it. You can't smell thick, aesthetically built muscle (well, hopefully not, and if you can, get a shower). If you put a picture of some pencil necked geek, or some pot-bellied hairy backed gamer, next to a well sculpted, thickly muscled guy, and showed pictures, or movies, you think they wouldn't get any indication of greater sexual arousal viewing the muscular guy? They would, by a longshot.

Although, they might like the pot-bellied silverback ape if he had dollar bills tatooed on him, for a subliminal effect. Muscle is fine, but, money is what makes life easier, right? Women are pragmatic about these things.

It's fake dude. There's no Megan Wang at the Psych department at Berkeley.
