But why would you WANT to?
2002-01-14 10:08:06 AM  
2002-01-14 10:08:13 AM  
and the purpose of this discovery is.............??????????????
2002-01-14 10:09:10 AM  
The men were then asked to become "detached observers" and do whatever it took to avoid arousal

Are they sure this isn't just the part of the brain that thinks about baseball?

This information must be destroyed at all costs.
2002-01-14 10:12:50 AM  
I'm sure this would be of great interest to the troll boy made of Jello.
2002-01-14 10:12:57 AM  
Cerebral man becomes cellibate man. Oh rapture.
2002-01-14 10:14:37 AM  
I believe this information can be used to help men who are not aroused by the breast.

Mario Beauregard, Johanne Levesque and Pierre Bourgouin

You gentlemen are a disgrace to all things penile.
2002-01-14 10:16:20 AM  
This information must be isolated and suppressed at all cost, lest it be used as a weapon of mass sterilization by bin Laden and his cronies!!!
2002-01-14 10:16:27 AM  
OH NO, what is this world coming to.......
2002-01-14 10:16:38 AM  
Before reading the article, let me make a guess:

Female scientists....?
2002-01-14 10:16:49 AM  
Why would the University of Montreal find something like this out???, has anyone here ever been to Montreal, they have some of the best strip joints that have ever "stimulated" my mind, it's like Tommy Chong finding a way for people to stop smoking pot.
2002-01-14 10:17:27 AM  
Oh, not female, but French.....well...
2002-01-14 10:20:09 AM  
I've heard of this. It's called being gay.
2002-01-14 10:21:04 AM  
In the hands of a rogue lesbian organization, this could be fatal to mankind, and a windfall to the strap-on industry.
2002-01-14 10:22:10 AM  
Who the hell comes up with this shiat? Who is sitting around thinking damn I'm tired of liking tits? damn
2002-01-14 10:22:59 AM  
i didn't know that the testicles were part of the brain
2002-01-14 10:23:07 AM  
See - evolution doesn't necessarily imply progress.
2002-01-14 10:24:10 AM  
And the terrorists have won.....
2002-01-14 10:24:45 AM  
you cannot remove boobie joy. nosirre.
2002-01-14 10:25:42 AM  
I've always prefered a bottle in front of me to a prefrontal lobotomy, but I may have a change of mind.
2002-01-14 10:25:54 AM  
Well, we damn well better find a way to protect that important part of the brain from hackers and small chested women.
2002-01-14 10:27:46 AM  
"The ability to "turn off" an emotion has wider implications, being central to warding off disorders such as depression and anxiety, which are marked by patients' inability to turn their thoughts from sadness and worry."

Which is caused by lack of exposure to boobies! Duh!
2002-01-14 10:28:15 AM  
They'll have to pry the boobies from my cold, dead hands before I stop getting aroused by them. Either tha or kick me in the nuts, but I don't hope either will ever happen.


Ron Tugnutt says,"Nooooooooooo!!!!"
2002-01-14 10:28:26 AM  
Anybody remember that study that showed how watching boobies can make you healthier, or something like that?
2002-01-14 10:29:57 AM  
They can take GirlyGirl's boobies from me when they pry them from my cold, dead, hands!
2002-01-14 10:30:11 AM  
What about women who get turned on by watching porn? Does it work for them too? Just wondering....
2002-01-14 10:30:19 AM  
Obviously, the benefit of this research is that I now know which part of my brain to have surgically removed!
2002-01-14 10:31:46 AM  
This would actually be good as an on/off switch in those situations that I would actually want to look into a woman's eyes instead of her breasts for a change.
2002-01-14 10:31:47 AM  
on the up-side: cant it be reversally engineered to make boobie-enjoyment better? Then again, I can just see the clothing industry benefitting equally by having to build stronger crotches for thier jeans.
2002-01-14 10:34:35 AM  
jmt: when'd women get eyes?
2002-01-14 10:34:36 AM  
Has anyone ever heard a radio ad seeking volunteers for a study like this? Can you imagine?!
"We need healthy males aged 18-40 who are willing to watch multiple hours of X-rated video spread out over a period of several weeks."

You'd need riot control at the hospital. All I ever hear them for is smallpox vaccination. Bah, smallpox.
2002-01-14 10:34:40 AM  
Further proof that Canadians have way too much time on their hands.
2002-01-14 10:34:47 AM  
I dont believe it. Even if they can block arousal, boobies are still fun to play with, like Play-Dough.
2002-01-14 10:36:24 AM  
Insert Mr. Spock reference here <-------
2002-01-14 10:41:59 AM  
I think this qualifies as

"The 'skull-bone' is connected to the...'brain-bone'..."
"and the 'brain-bone' is connected to the...'fag-bone'..."
"and the 'fag-bone is connected to....."

You fill in the rest.
2002-01-14 10:50:13 AM  
All we need now is a law making it legal to lobotomize repeat sex offenders, and it'll be just like "Clockwork Orange" !!

Isn't that great ?

But seriously I think everything that shows us how our brain works is good, a step towards learning to control other people's mind to make them do what I want.
2002-01-14 10:52:26 AM  
These types of mad scientists must be stopped!
2002-01-14 11:04:16 AM  
I dont think it qualifies as scary...its just plain wrong. They should make an icon for links like this.

Genetic Freak Bat-Boy overcomes woody with mind control!
"Those Vulcun ears really help!"

"The prefrontal lobe is the most recent part of the nervous system to develop in evolution. Chimpanzees have one, but it is no more than 25 per cent the size of the organ in humans."

I guess I'm a chimp then.
2002-01-14 11:11:52 AM  
Does this mean men will go on Boobie strike?! What if mine like the attention?
2002-01-14 11:21:11 AM  
Actually, if I could get that part of my brain to work correctly, I'd have like 4-5 more hours a day. Hmmm....
2002-01-14 11:38:12 AM  
I already knew about that part of my brain. I call that part my testicles.
2002-01-14 11:47:05 AM  
Fagnaziscientistbastards must die!!
2002-01-14 11:53:58 AM  
If yours like the attention, how come they aren't in your profile?

This news is disturbing. I, for one, am going to make it a goal to oggle boobies like made in case the day comes when lesbian bull dikes from outer space zap us with some cosmic ray gun that overstimulates that supermonkey part of the brain and makes us not interested in them.

This I vow to do in the name of freedom and humanity!
2002-01-14 12:32:44 PM  
must be the part of the brain that can hear 'em speak...
2002-01-14 12:32:55 PM  
My portion of the brain goes from ear to ear.
