where would the world be without social science?

I just got the latest issue of Evolution & Human Behavior. The actual title of one of the articles: "Attractiveness and sexual behavior: Does attractiveness enhance mating success?"

(The study actually has some ambiguous findings, but only and exactly to the extent that counting sexual partners is a systematically suboptimal way of measuring mating 'success'. Otherwise, consider your long-time suspicion that attractiveness helps in mating markets to remain safe.)
