Sniffing your man with the Pill

A friend posted this brilliant new study on her facebook profile. The "scientifically" mental findings of this study are beyond brilliance. Who the hell funds these projects and WHY??? I want to meet the people who did this remarkable work and touch their feet. 

According to this study "Birth-control pills could screw up a woman's ability to sniff out a compatible mate". How you might wonder. It's simple. 
"The pill puts a woman's body into a hormonally pregnant state (the reason she doesn't ovulate), and during that time there would be no reason to seek out a mate. When women are pregnant there's no selection pressure, evolutionarily speaking, for having a preference for genetically dissimilar odors. And if there is any pressure at all it would be towards relatives, who would be more genetically similar, because the relatives would help those individuals rear the baby. So the pill puts a woman's body into a post-mating state, even though she might be still in the game."

Ok, so here's what I get from the study
1. Women sniff out mates only to have babies (Arre, you didn't know that?!!)
2. When they accomplish the task of sneakily getting the (oh so hard to get) sperm fertilized into a baby, they stop sniffing. Work is done, boss, why bother?
3.  When they are pregnant they start sniffing out relatives they could latch on to instead. Cos they need these kin to take care of their baby (the men they sniffed out are breadwinner not nappy changers)
4. If a non pregnant women takes pills she is at the risk of being unable to sniff out the right kind of breadwinner.
Conclusion of this study: Balle Balle. 

I rest my case.

At the zoo

Babies are funny, especially when the only interaction you have with them is like in a zoo, from behind a glass window. All you need to do is watch them play, no changing nappies or dealing with their temper tantrums. 
I have the luxury of doing that at this cafe, watch the babies when I take a mac break. And here are the top 3 on  my list today:

1. Korean baby in a pink dress, 3 months old, sucking on (believe it or not) her toe. Evidently it tastes pretty good cos she is cackling away at her
2. Korean baby elder sister in another pink dress, 2 years old, picking on (again believe it or not) bird poo under chairs. Well that does not taste as good as the toe cos baby 2 is now choking and crying at the same time. oops.  Am I supposed to  intervene at this stage?
3. American baby with a red baseball cap, 3 years old, on a high chair, multi tasking rather well. He is picking his nose, observing the product retrieved, at the same time singing to himself and kicking his mother.  Bravo.
