Intelligent Men 'Have Better Sperm'

Had to post this, quite interesting.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7767877.stm

"Conversely, people with robust genes might be blessed with a biological “fitness factor” making them fit, healthy and smart.

Previously, scientists tended to assume that lifestyle factors were more likely to underlie any relationship between intelligence and health.

For instance, brighter people may be less likely to smoke, and more likely to take exercise, both of which are known to impact on mental performance."

Well, atleast I won’t have to worry about condoms anymore.

“They found a small, but statistically significant link, and were able to show that this could not be explained by unhealthy habits, such as smoking or drinking alcohol.”

Lead researcher Dr Rosalind Arden said: “This does not mean that men who prefer Play-Doh to Plato always have poor sperm: the relationship we found was marginal.”

Interesting, but if the relationship is marginal, I guess we’d better get our asses off our laurels and back into the gym.

On a side note, it always bugs me that they don’t have the numbers published as well. It would be interesting to see.

Take exercise?

I always thought I had super-sperm… this helps legitimate my delusion.

Stupid people always think they’re smart.

That’s why I make an effort to think I’m stupid.

The word “legitimate” can be used as both an adjective (“he is not the legitimate (rhymes with “ejaculate”, the noun) heir to the throne”) and as a verb (“he paid off three judges in order to legitimate (rhymes with “ejaculate”, the verb) his claim”).

In other words, it was used correctly by ShaneM686.

Whats it matter either way ?
