We've got the 'female entourage' Adrian Grenier is looking for

Women are more forgiving about looks, and a study of other obvious studies

CHST Banner

It’s time for another edition of our study of obvious studies — a recurring segment we call, “I Coulda Told You That.” Seriously, scientists get paid to come to the darnest conclusions.

Like this one: Students who have access to their phones in school end up with lower test scores, because they’re distracted. Wow. Much science!

In this edition, we’ll also take a look at how women deal with forgiving attractive men; how conspiracy theorists react to, um, conspiracies; and whether or not female journalists burn out faster than male ones.

We hate to tell you, but there are just no shockers involved in any of these.
