Do Nerds Have Better Sperm?


Posted October 15, 2008 - By Joseph Baxter

A recent study has determined that a man's sperm quality may be an indicator of his brain power. Evolutionary Psychologist Geoffrey Miller first began this research examining the connection between sperm and intelligence in 1985 with Vietnam Veterans while investigating the after effects of Agent Orange exposure. While the study can be skewed by things such as age, drug use, and abstinence, the connection was found to be not overwhelming, but still significant.

Translation: Nerds have good baby batter.

The connection, Miller argues, is a result of the two traits being tied together through a web of biological and environmental factors which help women pick better mates.

And to think of all the money us guys have wasted on Ax Body Spray, thinking that women were going to rip our clothes off and make men out of us right there in the streets. How many of us in the 90's bought Tori Amos and Sarah McLaughlin CD's thinking this would make us seem "more sensitive?" Damn you, Corporate America with your false advertising and your chocolate sprays! I have lawsuits to file.

I might add, speaking objectively with full "geek" colors flying, a conflict of interest for people who became scientists isn't exactly lacking here. Just saying...
