File this one under "No S***, Sherlock"

Turns out men prefer women to wear sexy underwear and women prefer wearing comfortable underwear. Not to mention, women prefer not showing their underwear on the outside -- thong-straps or bra-straps showing -- but men turn out to like it. The Chosun Ilbo reports. You don't say.

Also, this just in: a survey of 7000 Canadian, Russian, Chinese, and American bears reveals that their preferred place to shit is in the woods. The startling exception to this is Arctic polar bears, who prefer shitting in the snow.

Hmmm...2 years ago, the JoongAng Ilbo reported that it was becoming the fashion to make straps and so on visible (or at least not be at such great pains to hide them anymore), and that's been my own experience as well. Consider the following a 3880 word rebuttal to the oh-so-scientific Chosun Ilbo's survey then:

And people wonder why I study Korean gender issues...
