Research by Canadian scientists published in the journal PLOS ONE stated that when women choose a picture or photo for internet use, they tend to choose more explicit avatars. The proportions of the character’s body seem not to matter much one way or the other.

17 November 2012. Sergei Yolkin’s World. Score One for Darwin

Score One for Darwin

Sergei Yolkin

2012

******

A rightwing nutter in the RF Gosduma introduced a bill to outlaw Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. It’s going nowhere fast; Putin’s not behind it, neither is HH. It’s like a crackbrained proposal to label Lenin’s works “extremist”… some rightwing ROCOR loons got Metropolitan Hilarion Kapral to sign on to it. He should just quietly back out of it… that’d fix the Vlasovtsy good for such BS, wouldn’t it?

Of course, if socially-close individuals “yawn together”, and the chimp “yawns together” with Darwin, that means that the chimp is related to Darwin, thus, proving the Theory of the Evolution of Species… QED. Another multilayered Yolkin jest…

______________________________

According to research published in the journal PLoS ONE, “infectious” yawning in chimpanzees and bonobos, like in humans, can depend on how socially close two individuals are to each other.

A study published in the journal PLOS One by researchers at the University of Montréal in Canada reported that negative information in the media increases sensitivity to stressful situations in women (they also remember it better); men aren’t so sharply affected by such information.

The Cockroach Hop

______________________________

Cockroaches and geckos use their body as a pendulum to execute a kind of flip when jumping from one branch of the tree to its opposite side, which helps them to become “invisible” and escape from predators, biologists wrote in an article published in PLoS One.
