Science Sunday: Men Make Boobs Grow! and Other Amazing Science-y Maybe-Facts


Here at The Last Half, we consider it our responsibility to educate the American public, which has demonstrated a remarkable absence of mind when it comes to knowledge of Science-y stuff.
 
And we have an addiction to reading Science blurbs.
 
And we email the best ones to ourselves and want to share.

So every Sunday, give or take 51 or so Sundays a year, we will post the best Science blurbs of the week, or of whenever we got around to reading them, put into layperson’s terms–words a person could understand while laying in bed half-asleep. Get ready for…

…Amazing Science!

Men Make Boobs Grow

It’s a fact, Jack. Once, this totally cool dude I was dating, a programmer-analyst type just like I was, smarter than smart ( ๐Ÿ™„ ), said the dumbest-#ss thing to me whilst we were between the sheets:

” —

Oh, wait–You need a little context first:

He wouldn’t stop playing with my boobs.

I mean, he wouldn’t stop. Now, I’m pretty darn fond of having my boobs played with, but there comes a point where anything gets old, and he was seventeen minutes and thirty-five seconds past that point. So I had just said:

“What the frig? What’s with all the boob-playing?!”

NOW you have the context. And then HE said:

“It’s so they’ll grow.”

Have you ever heard anything so d#mned dumb in all your life?! And this from one of the otherwise-smartest guys you’d hope to meet!

I just about laughed my boobs off! I ragged on him so bad! He actually told me he’d always figured

“…the only reason some chicks are flat-chested is because they haven’t had their boobs played with enough.”

Oh, my aching chest.

Well now I may have to eat my words. At least when it comes to pregnant boobs, single mom rats wind up with smaller boobs than married mom rats. Their boobs grow less during pregnancy, getting less milk in them.
Rat Bra

We don’t know that the same man magic happens to human boobs, but it might. In which case, I owe that long-ago dude an apology:

Sorry, dude. If man-magic can grow pregnant boobs, maybe it can grow unpregnant ones too.

Ladies with big boobs, let this be your warning:

STAY AWAY FROM MEN!!!
 

ADDENDUM: MEN STINK

The paper this stuff came from will tell you the theory about why the boobs grow is that men stink. The ratty-men’s smelly pheromones make the ratty-women’s breasts go all a titter (I’m tittering typing that).

The paper also tells you that the single (i.e. unscented) ratty-moms nurse their babies less, and their babies are a bit less smart. THAT is interesting.

ADDENDUM: EXTRA SCIENCE LESSON FOR IDIOTS

No, you idiot. Her boobs are not tiny because no one ever liked them and no one ever played with them. Playing with them more will not make them grow. Does your dick reach the ceiling yet? Idiot.
 

Please Save Us From Idiots
 

ADDENDUM: WHERE ARE THE “OTHER SCIENCE-Y FACTS?”

I’m sorry. That’s all we have time for this week. If the world is still here next Sunday–if the world’s boobs haven’t yet destroyed it–maybe next week! Here’s a video instead:

  4. Words fail me. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Just as well we are not rats. Anyway, I was behind the door when boobs were handed out. My first husband used to tell me that any more than a handful was just a waste. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    I hear the guys on other planets have bigger dicks because their mates have no boobs. Humm. Wonder what science-y hypothesis we can come up with for that tidbit?

    All kidding asideโ€”love your humor! Does that come from man-handling as well? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Those guys? Yeah. I heard about them. They only think their dicks are bigger because they spend all their post-pubescent years telling each other how huge they are down there. The suppression of mammary development among the females of the species has recently been linked to an autocidal reaction triggered by extreme eye-rolling-induced nausea.
      ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Thank you! And I wish. I have yet to find a man, or he me, who is interested in my combination of quaint, old-fashioned, womanly charms, ( ๐Ÿ™„ ) excellent health (!), lack of diet restrictions (!!), healthy purse ( ๐Ÿ˜€ ) , and laid-back devil-may-care attitude ( ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ). The more fools, they!

  9. Loved it! That’s what I call a laugh and learn post – hilarious and educational 2 for one ๐Ÿ˜€ Incredible that boob dude made it that far in dating without being told before? Or perhaps he chose not to believe it? Or he had a boob fetish and that was his cover? No matter the pinocchio come-back was spot on. And that’s not a lie ๐Ÿ˜‰ PS loved the cymatics vid too ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I wish I’d thought of the Peno-cchio response at the time–what a missed “teachable (reachable ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) moment”.

      Seriously, the guy was VERY smart, and super nice–we kept dating for some months after. He wrote to me for ages. (I looked for his letters for my post on old BF letters and they are GONE!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )

      I think he was terribly embarrassed. I think the myth had been something acquired as a “Young Man’s Tale” (something totally without merit, versus the bulk of Smart Woman’s Tales) at such a young age he’d never questioned it.

      Much as self-taught early readers have “book words” we mispronounce in our heads until, one day, we say one aloud in public and are humiliated.

      One of mine was “archipelago”. I said “Ark-i-puh-LAH-go”. I still start to say it that way first, and have to hurry and fix it, every time.

      Glad you liked that video–I really did, too!

  10. That particular activity should be a two-way street, Babe, but my thoughts are usually more short term, if you get my drift. Science dweeb guy. Yeesh. I wonder if that was his Master’s thesis? One of those four-years-to-complete-the-research fellas? See you next week for more eye-opening science news, I’m certain.

    • I swear, Mark, my intent was a totally-straight here-to-inform-you set of brief bullets summarizing three or four of the blurbs I felt had important info. But this first post just got away from me somehow. It had a mind of its own! Boobs for brains, even. As we used to say, back when we said sexist things like that.

      We’ll see if I can manage one a week. I need to finish the Autocidal series, I still owe Yemi a Bully series entry (and I have my own ending to add), I told someone I’d answer their Liebster questions and haven’t…

      And here you post daily. Arghh. How do you DO that!? Amazing!

      • Making the science posts personal like this is so much more fun, Babe. Please and thank you?! Just saying.

        And I post daily because I have a vision that it somehow will lead to a job replacement situation that also brings in the financial renumeration I require. Keep me sharp? Networking? Intellectual discovery? All of the above in some combination, most likely.

  11. Since I am at work, I dare not stay on this screen long…and I am not brave enough to play the video, since I work at a religious organization. Muffling laughter though. Definitely muffling laughter.

    If they had taught this in sixth grade science class there would have been a LOT less paper airplanes flying around. And a LOT more second base action later. ๐Ÿ™‚ You are AWESOME! This is hilarious.

    • Hi, Rebecca,

      Thank you! Glad my words were able to help lift you on a day sorely needing it. Apologies for the long delayed response. I’m still offline as far as posting goes, but will slowly try to work my way back over the next days or weeks to read others’ posts. Been some drama at my end that just overwhelmed me.

        Sorry that you are offline. And to hear about the overwhelming drama. Icky. And never good for one’s health.
        Hope things turn around for you. Looking forward to the next read.
        Be well.

      That was awfully nice of you.

      I have missed your column, and the words and friendship of many of my online friends, and the support of my followers. I’ve been going through some stuff–a combination of stuff (some medical, some non)–and just haven’t been able to manage WP. I hadn’t planned to drop suddenly the way I did. So rudely! Keep trying to get back, but I have to TCB in other life areas for a bit longer. I was planning to try to dip in a read others’ posts a bit, so guess your msg is my cue to start with yours!

      I have been a bit overwhelmed dealing with some life nonsense. I have missed your great humor, the blogs of all my other pals, the friendship of you and all my WP friends, and the support of my fantastic followers. At some point–I hope soon–I’ll be back.

      I am, basically, fine. It is only that an uptick in the series of unfortunate events that often seems to constitute too large a part of my life has temporarily overwhelmed me. Since my stack already felt overfull prior to this…I don’t know when I’ll be back. Each time I think I will, something else occurs (some of it really irksome autocidal-related stuff).

      Anyhow, eventually. Meanwhile, thank you so much for caring and inquiring. I know there are great laughs from all your back posts waiting for me when I do come back!

    • I love your anger. It sounds just like the way I usually am. I swear sometimes we woman should have an instant-alert system–a Twitter-tree (and I don’t even tweet) so that we could call on every feminist within a given radius of a jerkwad to gang up on him and f*ck with him until he cries Aunt.
