Breaking news out of Live Science. Apparently “Eyes Can’t Resist Beautiful People”.

According to the article:

Whether we’re looking for someone to date or sizing up a potential rival, our eyes irresistibly lock on to good-looking people, a new study finds.

Participants, all heterosexual men and women, fixated on highly attractive people within the first half-second of seeing them. Single folks ogled the opposite sex, of course. But those in committed relationships more often eyed beautiful people of the same sex.

“If we’re interested in finding a mate, our attention gets quickly and automatically stuck on attractive members of the opposite sex,” explained study leader Jon Maner of Florida State University. “If we’re jealous and worried about our partner cheating on us, attention gets quickly and automatically stuck on attractive people of our own sex because they are our competitors.”

Maner’s research is based on the idea that evolution has primed our brains to subconsciously latch on to signs of physical attractiveness in others, both to find a mate and to guard him or her from potential competitors.

But this evolutionary trick is not without potential romantic peril. Even some people in committed relationships had trouble tearing their eyes away from attractive members of the opposite sex. On the other hand, fixating on attractive people of the same sex as rivals could contribute to feelings of insecurity.

Maner found that men prone to jealousy kept a close eye on attractive potential rivals.

“When it comes to concerns about infidelity, men are very attentive to highly attractive guys because presumably their wives or girlfriends may be too,” he said.

Maner’s experiments, which flashed pictures of attractive men and women and average-looking men and women in front of participants and measured the time it took to shift their attention away from the image, surprisingly showed little difference between the sexes.

“Women paid just as much attention to men as men did to women,” Maner said.

The study is detailed in the September issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.

Thanks for that ground breaking story Ms. Andrea Thompson. No seriously. I’m glad Live Science is devoting time and resources to letting the public know that we like to ogle hot people. I mean I can’t imagine that’s why there’s oh, 100 different celebrity and beauty magazines. Retards. Actually lemme dig up one of my newly found insults. Ah, got one. You bloody herring choker! There…now I really dug one into you.

Anyway, I was recently tagged by Tortious for The Face Behind the Blog tag. Since CDP was brave enough to show her face on her blog, and since I can’t avoid a game of tag to save my life I’ll take her up on the tag. Although most of you already know what I look like…but for those that don’t, I present to you the face behind WhatPushesMyButtons:


That’s right…I’m none other than Nahoud, the Jihad Bee. I teach children about the joys of Jihad.

I mean my commute back and forth between NYC and the Middle East is pretty tough these days, but those guys at Al Jeezera really know how to let you fly in comfort. I mean, first class all the way. Unlimited honey to snack on. My favorite bollywood porn movies.

What else could a Jihad bee ask for?

(BTW CDP: I’ve secretly hidden a photo of myself on this blog post…betcha’ can’t guess which one is me!)

9. abarclay12 - October 5, 2007

I love that you are a giant Jihad Bee. That’s hot. Second, I’m pleased to know that all my life I’ve been correct in being attracted to hot people. Previously I thought I was shallow, but now I know I’m just normal. Thanks for that whatpushes. Good stuff today.

Tiffany: it’s ok…i prefer to remain anonymous sometimes.

ABarclay: Jihad Bee’s are hot these days. My brother Ahmad the Martyr Bee just had a date w/ Paris last night. Now, That’s Hot!

17. whatpushesmybuttons - October 5, 2007

Why thanks neil…in a mannish sorta way πŸ˜‰

Jake: yeah, our bee colony is full over my siblings. I have over 200 brothers and sisters who can’t wait to travel over to this great US of A and spread their nectary goodness.

I think the person in the middle is Hansel, he’s so hot right now.

23. whatpushesmybuttons - October 5, 2007

Ha…well I’m suprised I even fit into a tux considering I’m a carbohydrate munching bastard πŸ˜‰

Good quips btw…you’re on your game Kendrick, you’re on your game.

Too soon, thos, too soon. We need at least 4 more days before Owen Wilson references can be made.

24. melanie - October 5, 2007

Now that’s a hunk sandwich if i’ve ever seen one! yowzers! πŸ˜‰

25. nelson - October 5, 2007

26. lauriekendrick - October 5, 2007

You’re hot, Brother., Now I see was Tegdirb sees in your ass.

27. whatpushesmybuttons - October 5, 2007

nelson: needed to give the ladies something to drool over since some of the guys here are still recovering from discovering Utah Flapjacks.

Melanie: well wouldn’t that be a saucy photo…i mean i’d expect it from clooney…but including brad in that would be the celebrity scoop of the century! πŸ˜‰

28. whatpushesmybuttons - October 5, 2007

LK: Don’t know about hot – I probably have more fat on my chin than Pitt has on his entire body.

I’m more of the “Dove” model type these days πŸ˜‰

29. candice - October 5, 2007

hahahaha DOve model…does that mean you’re curvy with soft skin πŸ˜‰

30. lauriekendrick - October 5, 2007

It’s OK..I used to be a runway model myself……


31. whatpushesmybuttons - October 5, 2007

32. janet - October 5, 2007

ok i’m finally done drooling…

so when does the new dove campaign featuring you come out? enquiring minds wanna know πŸ˜‰

33. lauriekendrick - October 5, 2007

Yeah, Pushes….if we can make KEYWORK a coondidate with far reaching implications, let’s make you a Dove model. We have the technology.

Uh..one more thing.. Dove? Is that the soap or the Ice cream bar?

34. catherine rebalt - October 5, 2007

hi…i just came across this blog from another series of blogs….and have to say I’m hysterical right now…

keep up the great work…i’ll be back for seconds, and thirds! πŸ˜‰

35. Whatpushesmybuttons - October 5, 2007

Sorry LK I guess I should’ve been clear.

I’m obviously talking about the ice cream bar.

I’d prefer myself lathered in chocolately goodness rather than that useless shit called body soap.

Welcome aboard catherine! Feel free to stay and play as long as you’d like.

36. nincompoop - October 5, 2007

yeah, something tells me i’ll pass on eyeing your campaign…especially if it’s a spread! hahaha

37. lauriekendrick - October 5, 2007

OK, Jette…thanks for the clarificatrion. I’m going to make you a Dove model. A fudge bar. Carvel- esque…something they’d serve at the adult Friendly’s.

Scores for Women.

38. whatpushesmybuttons - October 5, 2007

Sweet…i’ve always wanted to be the centerfold of ice cream times. Hopefully i’ll find some cherries to cover my nipples…that gold star i tried last time caused a ruckus during the super bowl halftime (yes, I was Janet’s body double that evening)

Look out Fudgy the whale – there’s a new ice cream icon in town!

39. melanie - October 5, 2007

as long as you’re wearing that tux of yours, i’ll buy the product! πŸ˜‰

40. candice - October 5, 2007

Oh I can’t wait to see this Laurie…do you have a full body shot you can use???

41. chris - October 5, 2007

Candice: Don’t have anything recent (within the past 6 months) but I dug this glamour shot up from last year

LK: Hope it’s usable.

42. candice - October 5, 2007

hahahahaa….you crack me up! LOL

43. roger - October 5, 2007

45. Mr. Blogger - October 5, 2007

46. xander - October 5, 2007

that’s a lot of muscle to fit beneath that bee costume!

47. catherine rebalt - October 5, 2007

you know…i thought that was you in the body building contest last week…those bikini pics don’t do you justice!

48. trent - October 5, 2007

49. janet - October 5, 2007

51. nincompoop - October 5, 2007

Gary you’d love a lamppost if it wore a skirt πŸ˜‰

52. lauriekendrick - October 5, 2007

Well, I can use one part of it. I think you know which. Nice veins. Is that a sign of things to come???

53. lauriekendrick - October 5, 2007

However, I think I can do more with you based on this photo of you…the one which captures how you really look ni the weekends.

FAR more masculine than that posed photo with the blown up muscles!!

54. whatpushesmybuttons - October 5, 2007

Thanks Laurie…way to show the world what my true image is like away from the body building world. 😦

I’m so embarassed.


I knew it was a mistake to model for that stupid Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgendered site!! Never, ever again!!!!

55. gary - October 5, 2007

That hurts nincompoop…the girl at least needs to be alive and capable of doing other things except turning on and off

56. janet - October 5, 2007

gary i can go sooooo many places with that…but i won’t.

And for the record you would be in love with me πŸ˜‰

57. bob - October 5, 2007

Oh…well since chris showed his true self…why don’t you show yours! πŸ™‚

58. candice - October 5, 2007

66. roger - October 5, 2007

67. candice - October 5, 2007

Janet’s milkshake brings all the boys to the yard…hee hee

68. Chris - October 5, 2007

69. gary - October 5, 2007
