IMFW: Skinny Minnie or Stressy Bessie?
My favourite medical fact of the past week has been that a study has indicated that men in stressful conditions are more likely to find larger women attractive. Presumably this should prove useful to husband-hunters everywhere - the more slender ladies can go on the prowl at yoga centres and juice bars while their heavier sisters can target office blocks and traffic jams... In less jolly news about things that are definitely true, a man with Parkinson's was arrested at the Olympic men's cycling road race. His illness meant that he did not "visibly appear to be enjoying the event", and this coupled with his proximity to a group of protestors apparently was enough for him to be arrested for breach of the peace.
