Monkey Misogyny 

There's all kinds of real science out there happening, but I'm too distracted right now to write about it. So what catches my interest enough to blog, you ask? Monkey sex, of course!

Kenyan farmers (who are generally women) are complaining that monkeys, who've always been crop-stealers, are now sexually harassing them. Like, full-on crotch grabbing, breast oggling harassment. So I guess straight men can blame phylogeny more effectively now. Wow.

Speaking of uncomfortable sexual topics, a survey found that many old folks are still getting busy. While I suppose that this is academically very interesting, I would really not like to have been involved in actually collecting the data. At all.

On the upside, and having less to do with sex, coffee is even better for you than I thought: women who drink a few cups a day have a slower cognitive decline with age. Awesome!

And finally, mahjong appears to be causing epilepsy. WHAT????
