Sexy/Sleepy: Study suggests link between beauty and bedtime
BMJ, a UK medical journal and not a complicated form of oral sex, has reported on a study done at Sweden's Karolinska Institute, in which the Nordic researchers took pics of 23 different subjects between ages 18 and 31 years of age in two parts — first, after the subjects had eight hours of sleep, and second, after the individuals remained awake for 31 hours and then only allowed five hours of z's.
Then the institute brought in 65 objective observers and asked them to compare the subjects based on beauty. Not surprisingly, the judges found the well-rested photos to be more attractive.
But after viewing just one example, we felt torn, and ultimately swayed by the sleepy fellow. The dude on the left is bright-eyed (read: over-eager) and a little too anxious to be productive. He looks like the type who would replace your salad dressing in the office fridge or refill your Post-its stash — he's that alert. He probably knows your favorite color before you do.
On the other hand, the sleepless knight on the right looks slightly dangerous. He might pick pocket you . . . but you might like it. You can't help but wonder what passion kept him up for 31 hours: Cocaine? Kinky sex? Baby sitting? Yes, yes and yes.
