Testosterone and lifespan

Korean eunuchs outlived uncastrated peers - "The average lifespan of eunuchs was 70.0 ± 1.76 years, which was 14.4–19.1 years longer than the lifespan of non-castrated men of similar socio-economic status." The study made use of the Yang-Se-Gye-Bo (養世系譜, 양세계보), a genealogy record of Korean eunuchs, and cross referenced the Annals of the Chosun Dynasty and Diary of the Royal Secretariat. The Annals and the Diary are official records of the daily activities of the Chosun government and the King.

and lawnmowers everywhere fall into disrepair

The end of the lawnmower era is nigh. Microbiologist Joanne Chory may change the face of suburban one-upmanship as we know it. Imagine a weekend morning without the sound of lawnmowers. Can it really be just around the corner? Will men be willing to terminate their love/hate (mpg) relationships with their lawns? After all, a man and his mower are not easily parted.

Hey, eyes up here buddy!

British scientists discover men's decision making skills can be compromised by a beautiful woman. I suppose this isn't much of a surprise, since "The Cheerleader Effect" has been reported on before [NYT]. The study also showed that testosterone levels also played a part, the more testosterone, the more pronounced the effect was.
