It’s an interesting idea, but I got a little distracted after I started reading because the article is vague and seems to lack… something.

It reminded me of this: http://www.slate.com/id/2286240/ Sex Is Cheap-Why young men have the upper hand in bed, even when they’re failing in life.

@kay01: The writing style was similar to any other research article one might read, so the more familiar you are with straight research the less it would bug you. The reason you might find it terrible is because it wasn’t created for the masses to read. Their audience is more concerned with the quantitative aspects.

As for the article itself, it does take into account for age and income which means it would account for older women. In fact, if you examine the discussion page it talks about possible correlations between how the older female with more income might rate a significantly higher ring due to the males belief that she is a hardworker and better mate.

They also had some interesting ideas on how females can identify their value (in the eyes of the male) by seeing how much money he makes and how big/small a diamond he gets you. It’s the idea that if your guy is making good money but would rather buy an xbox and all it’s assorted products then get you a .25 carat ring…kind of shows where you rank in his life.

Very interesting article, and should be helpful for waiting bees. Thanks for sharing!

@kay01: Maybe it’s just that anthropologists sort through things like sociologists. This looks exactly as sociological research articles do as far as organizations XD

I just completed a Logic class and this is what is called an invalid argument. It’s a very weak argument by sample because its “specimens” were only from one small area and not representative of the “whole class”. It also failed to be specific in a lot of areas, including what they meant by mate “quality”. Not that it matters. I just find it funny I was actually able to apply what I learned in Logic class to real life 🙂 Go me! Though I’m sure it will never happen again hehe.

@kay01: Yay someone else knows about fallacies! Why I’m excited about this I have no idea. My favorite is post hoc ergo propter hoc, mostly because of it’s crazy name but also because most people do think it’s logical to assume A caused B because B happened right after A – and yet that’s invalid. I’m totally dorking out right now, I know heehee.
