Ricky Gervais on Genesis.

In honor of an upcoming interview with Rebecca “The Skepchick” Watson ( oh yes dear reader it’s true and I have at least one other Rogue who’s agreed to be interviewed. Stay tuned!) enjoy this video of Ricky Gervais analysing the Bible, more specifically Genesis. I did not know of him until Rebecca mentioned him while answering one of the questions, and I’m glad she did. This guy is brilliantly funny!

Wealthy men give women more orgasms

Posted in News by Skepdude on January 19, 2009

Scientists have found that the pleasure women get from making love is directly linked to the size of their partner’s bank balance.

They found that the wealthier a man is, the more frequently his partner has orgasms.

“Women’s orgasm frequency increases with the income of their partner,” said Dr Thomas Pollet, the Newcastle University psychologist behind the research.

He believes the phenomenon is an “evolutionary adaptation” that is hard-wired into women, driving them to select men on the basis of their perceived quality.

The study is certain to prove controversial, suggesting that women are inherently programmed to be gold-diggers.
