Hmmm, I thought this week's alleged news about men's dancing to attractiveness ratio was suspect simply because the movements described as denoting "a better dancer" actually have very little to do with any movement involving actual knowledge of dance. Speaking as a dancer. :-)

Without reading the original study I'd guess it was badly designed and clumsily executed, with a much too small subject pool. But it generated a catchy headline!
