According to a recent study conducted at John Hopkins University, men’s brains react more strongly to amphetamines than women’s brains.

Researchers — led by Dr. Gary Wand, a professor of endocrinology — found men’s brains showed evidence of up to three times the amount of chemical dopamine as women’s when exposed to amphetamines.

Fickle, fickle drugs.

In the yellow ribbon/Dodge Ram pickup states, sociologists are finding similar results with monster truck shows and watching golf on television. Add topless checkout clerks to Home Depot and their heads will actually explode. Women, however, seep steady albeit tiny drips of dopamine throughout the day. Along with their Big Gulp diet pepsis. Although no link has been found.

What's wrong with being sexy?

That's gotta be God paying men back something for the extra-susceptability women have to smoking and alcohol.
