Anyway, on Tuesday, over at the ScienceBlog Retrospectacle, neuroscience PhD student Shelley Batts (who based on her pictures alone seems to be both attractive and avian-friendly) posted an analysis of a study appearing in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, which suggested that the antioxidants properties in fruits were boosted by alcohol.
So, Nik wants to hit that shit. This is, like, two steps away from passing Shelley a note in homeroom that reads “Do you like me?” and has two empty boxes marked “Yes” and “No”. The rule is Shelley is supposed to check one of them and pass the note back to Nik — in case you didn’t know. Now, this isn’t all that professional of a representative of Scientific American, but some guys ain’t as smooth as the other side of the pillow. What? I fucked that line up? Well, screw me with a screen door on a submarine.
Here’s the interesting twist: Shelley linked to the SciAm blog post without commenting on Nik’s complement/sexist-remark. This was brought up in the comments, and Shelley is yet to respond. Whether she does or not is up to her. But I’m wondering which box she’s checked.
As expected, Zuska is pissed, but that was expected, as expected.
