Friday, June 21 is Music Day around the U.S. and world (it actually started in France). Many areas offer free concerts and musical instrument lessons. Go learn the guitar!
If you're a multi-platinum selling rapper, you probably don't have much trouble getting laid. But for guys who aren't musical superstars, a six-string might be more helpful than a mic.
At least, that's according to new research from the University of Southern Brittany in France. Behavioral scientists had a 20-year-old dude ask 300 college-aged girls for their numbers. (Not the worst job in the world.) A third of the time he carried a guitar case, a third of the time he carried a gym bag and a third of the time he carried nothing.
With the ax, he got 31% of their digits. With nothing, he got 14%. And with the gym bag, he got 9%. Which confirms previous Israeli research on the subject, and raises a question: Why do girls despise gym bags so much?
It's not exactly shocking that ladies love men with musical talent, except that talent apparently isn't even necessary. Hell, a guitar isn't even necessary...all you need is a guitar case. If we'd known it was this easy, we would've never paid for lessons.
