A friend of mine, who is a smart and attractive young woman, was sitting at a bar, when some guy came up to her and offered her a drink. He started chatting her up, and eventually asked what she did for a living.
She replied that she was working on her PhD in Neuropsychology. The guy did not answer and simply took his drink elsewhere.
This, people, is 2008. "Smart women are scary." Boo.
Happy halloween. (Sort of.)
