Who knew?

Fascinating, absolutely fascinating. Who would have thought researchers needed to find out why we have sex.

Although I personally think its silly research, some of the answers are absolutely hysterical.

I wonder how much "hands on" research was required? Hmmmm....

Well... I think the money is much better spent here, than on exactly how much methane cows produce in a year.

And I'm betting the test subjects were a bit more enthusiastic...

hahaha...

first, the methane from cows is a huge environmental issue. which is ridiculous, but true.

second, there's no need to have sex; apparently all we have to do is hop on the treadmill, if we're all lucky like Casey...

LOL! Oh no, I'm not doubting the validity of the methane testing.

But heck... even if the subjects weren't more enthusiastic, perhaps the scientists were.

I mean... measuring cow farts vs. well... ANYTHING... the math tends to work out (though not always).

WELL...just when I thought our money was wasted on researching dumb things, you come up with this!

Thanks for the laugh!

Hey! That's my alma mater!! And some people called it a party school....

I liked "because they smelled nice" a as good reason.

I think my favorite was "Because I was bored."

I've done that.

Michelle, you're welcome! I'm thinking some of these researchers just have far too much money and are coming up with ridiculous ideas just to spend it! I wish I had that problem.

Ewww...cow methane. Trust me. It's a terrible problem. Just stand outside at my house when the wind is coming across the dairy farm a mile to the south. It's quite an aroma. Eat less beef, save the atmosphere!
