what is love?
scientists discover that romantic love triggers more brain activity than sex, that waist-to-hip ratio's of 0.7, big eyes and broad shoulders are physically most attractive on women, that symmetry is most attractive on both (symmetrical face=more sex)

english scientists are planning to study speed dating, american scientists have already done it - basically it all happens in the first 3 seconds (are they hot? yes, it's on. everything else is largely irrelevant)

the BBC studies this, in only the way the BBC can: interpreting facial expressions, testing ability to spot fake smiles, and brain events when in love are pretty similar to that occurring with mental illness (in love? you're crazy!)

much like franky goes to hollywood, the ancient Greeks had many words for love, that between friends, between family, what essentially translates to 'cherishing', and passionate, or sexual love. Perhaps, however, what modern media propogates as 'love' is actually limerance, even though it's actually neither love nor sexual attraction.

economists calculate the relative utility function of wives vs whores

and just coz it's great: Israel has an anti-semitic cartoon contest (“We’ll show the world we can do the best, sharpest, most offensive Jew hating cartoons ever published! No Iranian will beat us on our home turf!”), and because it's idiotic but unsurprising: American defence chiefs plan for conflict in dozens of countries and lasting for decades. f'in idiots.

Love the order of your tags. *grin*

Also, one of my friends posted this on Valentine's Day (which, incidentally, could explain the plethora of stuff about lurve that's popping up for russiandolls)

The gist of it is that attraction is a really individual thing and if you lined up the men one woman had dated, it'd be hard to pinpoint what they have in common that she found attractive about them. Which is interesting in light of the three-second thing.

much as I'd like to take credit, I think we have the Greeks to thank for that.. it's alphabetical..

although, frankly, I'd like more control over them.. I lose count of the number of times I've wanted to put blah, blah, blah as tags..

Yay for the Greeks, I say.

well, they seemed to have the concept of love buttoned up better than we do, with our commercialised mish mash of ridiculous ideals..

Yeah, the Greeks know -all- about lurve. Ever read their mythology? Zeus was a cheating, lying *whatever the word for a male nymphomaniac is* who was also a bit into incest and bestiality - and his wife and kids were pretty much the same.

Much more like real life than the Disney version, that's for sure.

*cue Rhiannon to step in with encyclopaedic knowledge, complete with examples, references and cutting wit.
