Nagging and pleading for posts: Completely successful

Our taxpayers' money is wasted on paying scholarly people to watch college students carrying books around.
Apparently there are gender differences (see also more recent research here). Notice the complete absence of facial expression in 1976 fashions.UPDATE: Notice how you can tell even without the faces that four of them are jeering and staring at the non-conforming social outcast in the middle who's committed the faux-pas of carrying his book in a finger-and-thumb pinch grip.

Totally not a projective test.

None of this came as any surprise to observers who have watched how men and women carry other objects.

God, those crazy '70's fads...like wearing those wide collars, listening to KISS, and not having a face... Crazy times.

Are there gender differences in gun-carrying behaviour?
More research is required.

Sigh. And then we wonder (well, some of 'us' does) why people tend to sneer at the research coming out of universities. Even back in the 70s.
