I Must Be a Freakin' Genius!

(CBS) New research finds an apparent, direct correlation between women's body fat and intelligence.

As CBS News correspondent Susan McGinnis reported on The Early Show Tuesday, the study shows women with fuller, "hourglass" figures seem to be smarter, and give birth to brighter children.


I'll have to do the math, but apparently there is a formula to this new theory. To figure out your waist to hip ratio, you divide your waist circumference by hip circumference. The lower the result, the better.

According to CBS's article, "Are Curvier Women Smarter?" one possible explanation is: the curvier the hips, the higher the level of omega-3 fatty acids surrounding hips & thighs, which are important for the growth of the brain during pregnancy.

I already think James is a genius. Even though I am biased, this can help support my theory.
