more attractive with...

ok, as prelude to this ... WRS has a question-competition every morning that they call "BrainFreeze" the DJ asks a question and if you get the answer right you win a Tshirt or some such crap...

the question ( and answer ) the other day was...
Brain Freeze: 50 percent of men think they are more attractive if they have one of these—what is it?

Answer: A smartphone


so what do you think.... could some guys really be so dim as to think their own attractiveness is enhanced by owning of some Egadget?

Re: more attractive with...

I actually feel a bit of a tool when I have to get mine out on the bus etc. But you can't choose your music, send texts or talk with the bloody thing in your pocket.

I am, of course, referring to smartphones, not hard-ons, just in case you were wondering

I'd say true.

All the girls swoon as I get mine out and start gently caressing it.

Re: more attractive with...

Anyone know the answer to this morning's Brain Freeze? 40% of women have missed work for ____ . I arrived at work before they gave the answer.

Edit: Nevermind, checked their site: http://worldradio.ch/wrs/shows/natio...-o.shtml?26454

Whoa, I could have answered correctly. No joke. My first idea was "take their pet to the vet".

Re: more attractive with...

I'm missing something here, but assuming most of you are straight, surely it's whether women think you are more attractive, not men, that's important?

It's like women putting on make-up less being about attracting guys, but mostly to tell the other byatches that they're the most attractive so they better back the freak off and let them have the rich alpha in the room. It doesn't make sense in the way it should.

I think with smartphones and cars, it's filling humanity's basic need for advancement. Having the newest flashiest car or the newest smart-phone is like having a layer of insecurity you don't have to worry about. "In this area of my life I've arrived. From a point of view of desire of material possessions , I can't (or don't desire for the moment to) do any better." Which makes you more confident and possibly more attractive. Or something.

Re: more attractive with...

Those men are definitely more attractive to women, as the smartphone diverts attention from their face and their depleted personality.
