"Though he nearly sold it on eBay once -- and for $2,000 no less -- Whipple decided it was better to hold on to the burger for posterity's sake." \o/

Penis Size - The Final Word

|
http://news.sciencemag.org/2013/04/final-word-penis-size

"No man is an island, and it turns out neither is his penis. New research suggests that size does matter, but the penis is only one (sometimes) small contributor to manly allure. A man's overall attractiveness to a woman, researchers have found, depends in part on the trio of height, body shape, and penis size...."

"After studying the movements of women for years, finally we get scientific confirmation of what we're seeing: Researchers at Cambridge University in the U.K. have figured out exactly what makes a perfect swivel-hipped walk with "a more angular swaying and bounce to the hips." The mathematicians got out their slide rules, calculators, blow-up dolls and binoculars, scientifically determining the perfect ratio of waist to hips. Their results? The closer that ratio is to 0.7 (waist measurement is 70% of the hip measurement), the sexier the swagger."

"In 2010, photographer Seth Taras created a series of photographs for a worldwide marketing campaign for the History Channel with the message "Know Where You Stand." The photographer shot photos at locations around the world where major historical events happened, and then blended old photos showing those events from the same perspective. It's the same "then and now" concept that has become quite popular over the past few years."
