Pumpkin Pie increases Male Sex Drive 173

Dr. Alan Hirsch, Director of Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Center, says the key to a man's heart, and other parts, is pumpkin pie. Out of the 40 odors tested in Hirsch's study, a mixture of lavender and pumpkin pie got the biggest rise out of men ages 18 to 64. That particular fragrance was found to increase penile blood flow by an average of 40%. "Maybe the odors acted to reduce anxiety. By reducing anxiety, it acted to remove inhibitions," said Hirsch.

I find it very interesting to note that mentions of so-called "Christians" killing one or two mass-murdering abortion doctors gets a higher score on slashdot than the mention of the mass murder of Christians in India. It really shows where peoples loyalties lie on this site, and their prejudices. With the exception of this and a few other articles, I usually will never even read the comments on slashdot articles because of the bigotry, prejudice, and general lack of many slashdotters. It is painstaking to get through the everyday garbage that any uninformed idiot can post here.

How can you have a monopoly in your market if you're not even the largest player?

I'd ask for a refund on whatever it was you spent on your "education."

Just as an aside, does anyone remember the old legal battles with Microsoft, simply because entwined IE with Windows. That sort of thing, low as it was, is nothing compared to what Apple is trying to do (I say trying because they will not benefit from this in the long-run)
