An interesting article...

Here is an interesting article, titled "Ten Politically Incorrect Truths About Human Nature: Why most suicide bombers are Muslim, beautiful people have more daughters, humans are naturally polygamous, sexual harassment isn't sexist, and blonds are more attractive" (yes, it is a mouthful). (h/t freakanomics blog).

I'm always interested to see where research has been done on subjects that are common topics of conversation but that haven't really been given much empirical study. Oftentimes, what the reality is is far different from common assumptions. I don't know what was the basis for the conclusions in the article's excerpt from the book, but it certainly is interesting food for thought.
