Frabjous Times


From the article Marriage may tame genius comes this account of some New Zealand researcher's findings:
Creative genius and crime express themselves early in men but both are turned off almost like a tap if a man gets married and has children, a study says.
Dr Kanazawa suggests "a single psychological mechanism" is responsible for this: the competitive edge among young men to fight for glory and gain the attention of women.
And so once again we men are in thrall to our hormones, as posited by Theresa Crenshaw in her book from six years back The Alchemy of Love and Lust.
