Scientists are developing a pill which could boost women's libido and reduce their appetite.

The hormone-releasing pill has so far only been given to female monkeys and shrews who displayed more mating behaviour and ate less.

The team from the Medical Research Council's Human Reproduction Unit in Edinburgh believe a human version could be available within a decade.

While they're at it, why don't they just invent a pill to make us all blonde-haired, blue-eyed, size 6 with 30GG breasts and IQs hovering around the 90 mark. Hell, why not just shoot us all and replace us with life-sized Barbie dolls.

Shiny Shiny, a girl's guide to gadgets.

Me personally, I'm not that fond of the colour pink, and to be honest I'm not that into gadgets either. But this might interest some, so I thought I'd share.

I may be misunderstanding, because me and science and statistics have never been on very close terms, but as far as I can tell, this story, about how1 in 25 fathers may be unknowingly raising another man's child, is based on data gathered from people who had paternity tests done, right? So for a fair number of them, there were doubts in the first place, or they wouldn't have been testing. And .. no one thought that perhaps, just perhaps, that might skew the results a tiny bit?

ETA: Also, for those who are interested - the pilot of Lost got over 6 million viewers last night. Rock on.

Sorry for being somewhat spamtastic today, but the BBC are just being that interesting. Japanese develop 'female' android.

Scientist inventor dude: "An android could get away with [passing as human] for a short time, 5-10 seconds. However, if we carefully select the situation, we could extend that, to perhaps 10 minutes."

What possible application is there for this technology other than prosti-droids? Anyone?

Woman and Technology Awards. I wish I'd done that Computing degree. I could've been raking in the cash by now, and rising up the Career Ladder thanks to political correctness. Damn it. Stupid arts degree.

I'm watching this thing on the BBC - the Secret of the Sexes. It's currently exploring attraction, why people feel attracted to other people, etc. by doing scientific tests. Personally, I think it's quite obvious. The reason why all these people are single is because they are the most revoltingly self-involved, shallow, hideously obnoxious people on the face of the earth. It's natural selection - they shouldn't be *allowed* to pass on their genes.
