The Null Device

A study by German geneticists supports the controversial theory that human intelligence is the product of sexual selection, or evolved primarily as a courtship device (much as the peacock's tail). Furthermore, the study argues that women are responsible for the evolution of intelligence by selecting intelligent mates (though some might well argue that they are responsible for stupidity by selecting dumb, brawny meatheads over the scrawny, brainy geek types).

Yeh, they'll take the meathead every time. Problem is, they usually don't *see* them as meatheads. One woman's ideal is the neanderthal next door...
