In a UPI report by Brooks Hays, we learn that Men and women are biologically programmed to be drawn to the arched back of a female, new research suggests (obrigado para Instapundit).
This leads three readers to deadpan the following:
Thank you science for telling us another factoid that we have long known.
Good posture has always radiated class, health, strength, and self-confidence.
Mothers have always admonished their children to stand up straight.
Proper posture has long been taught to young ladies of proper breeding.
The military has been requiring its members to stand straight forever.
