In the Spring, a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love. Or so Tennyson wrote. Here at Science Buzz, we don’t truck with none o’ that mushy stuff. If you can’t measure it with real, live numbers, then heck, it may as well not exist.

(Wait a minute – didn’t we do this one before?)

Women like flashy cars

Women like men with a sense of humor. Why, they trampling over Tom Selleck to get to Buddy Hackett!*

And, in the one finding that wasn't screamingly obvious,

When you’re drunk, people do not look more attractive to you. Which seems only fair – when you’re drunk, you don’t look particularly attractive yourself. No offense.

* I heard a stand-up comic deliver that line some 20 years ago. Hence the dated reference. But when you’re right, you’re right.
