File under "Triumphs of Science"

This one is just for funsies. I hope the folks at the Ig Nobel Awards are paying attention:

CNN reports that when men see a bikini-clad woman, the areas of the male brain that are associated with handling tools and the intention to perform light up. The result? Men depersonalize sexual images of women.

Depersonalization? Perhaps. Still, science may have just solved a problem for women everywhere. Yes, indeedy--they may have just simplified that frustrating matter of how to introduce the weekend "Honey-do" list to greatest effect. Ladies, are you paying attention? First, don swimwear. Then, present toolbox. Once again scientific research enriches lives!
