This is my favorite science article for the day: Is hotness an inherited trait?

I enjoyed it for several reasons. The first is that someone actually got paid to time how long it takes fruit flies to have sex. The second is that the article actually used the word “score” to describe having sex. And third, that one of the scientists being interviewed said his son is out of luck if hotness is inherited with humans.

I guess this is what scientists do when they get bored.
