You Can't Fight Science

And we thought it was just empty whining all these years. Well, apparently, Paul may have a legitimate gripe. Unfortunately, this will now only lead to new parental issues to confront.

MIT scientists have found that your name is your key to sexiness. And:

"Men with "front vowels" in their names -- sounds formed at the front of the mouth like the "a" in Matt -- were considered sexier than men with "back vowel" sounds like the "au" in Paul, she concluded."


This might mean that I'm even sexier than I thought. That's hot.

Uhm...that's interesting, but "sexiness" itself is not an objective "scientific" category. It is the height of perception and subjectivity. Hugely fat women were incredibly sexy in the 17th century; now they would be sunned.
