קשר חשמלי

קשר חשמלי is an Israeli student movie about a superhero and the supervillainess that loves hates had a thing for him in high school. Featuring a super villain that unfortunately resembles Doctor Horrible a bit too much, but fortunately is played by Assi Cohen. But unfortunately, pitches his performance to the general level of amateurishness. Funny, though. And pretty credits at the end.

Sweaty T-Shirt, please

A New Scientist reporter checks out two online dating services that use DNA matching, based on the hypothesis that we’re attracted to people with dissimilar immune system genes – which correlates pretty well to whether we find the smell of someone’s sweat pleasant or unpleasant.

Another New Scientist year-end story recaps an article from February about an Italian scientist’s work on using ultrasound to determine if a woman has a G spot or not. The comments (in the article from other researchers, not on the article from idiot talkbackers) seem to display a certain reluctance to accept that vaginal orgasms are an idiosyncrasy of genetics or development like bendable thumbs or the ability to roll your tongue.
