Baby, it’s the leg
Researches reach ridiculous depths
26/06/2008

The world is still unable to come up with solutions for killer diseases, which are engulfing the world. But researchers in renowned universities globally seem to be on a roll squandering money in findings that border the ridiculous. Sample this: Odours produced by 131 different species of frogs when they are stressed [University of Adelaide]; number of photographs that should be taken to make sure that nobody in a group has his or her eyes closed [Australian Commonwealth Scientific & Research Organisation]; the ultrasonic velocity in cheddar cheese when affected by temperature [Universidad PolitÃocnica de Valencia & Universitat de les Illes Balears]. How can one miss the interesting finding of the famous Stockholm University which propounded that beautiful humans are more preferred by chickens!!! Wait, we’re not done yet.

A new research by Newcastle University shows that women prefer taller men for good one night stands, and shorter men for committed relationships.

How can findings like what’s so funny about humour be of any help to mankind especially when it is funded by not just one organisation but three at a stretch. Well, it is high time for researchers to realise it and prove their real worth by discovering something which does some good to mankind!
