Hi Kaleh, as I have always said little escapes your hawk eyes or your keen intellect. Thank you for posting the breast article, I skimmed (no pun intended) through it and as first line of questioning I have to ask of the author how is it that heterosexual women outgrow their breast fixation, well, never mind......

A great book about a time when women had three breasts and as such completely pacified their men is a novel by the name of "The Flounder" by "Gunter Grass". Check it out if you have the time.

By the way, khaleh M. thank you for introducing me to Richard Dawkins! through one of your posts.

Dearest Mehrban- You are a true source of knowledge and education for me. To cap our interesting conversation off, I got a bargain on the Flounder for 1 p on Amazon (although the p&p was £2.86), so I will eagerly await the arrival of the book and will report back to you once I have read it.

Hope you enjoy the remainder of the weekend my friend and look forward to talking to you soon.

By the way -what is currently being attempted now for certain kind of blindness has been in practice for certain types of deafness through cochlear implants--

so looks like we are getting closer to having 6 million dollar men living among us with increasing frequency. Goodness knows I could do with my boyfriend having a few bob spent on him to make him an enhanced individual.

Hi khaleh jaan, a few words of warning about "the Flounder". It is a long book, about 600 pages. It is convoluted and a little perverse. If I remember correctly,the first 50 or so pages are a slog to get through and then it becomes great entertainment (not in the Hollywood sense). I would not look at it as a philosophical book, it is based on (or inspired by) the Grimm Brothers fairy tale of "The Fisherman and the Flounder". I hope you enjoy it!

Hi Mehrban Jaan- Thank you for the advice- I will be patient at the beginning with the Flounder. Convoluted and perverse is just fine with me in any case.
Best wishes x

Hi Mehrban- Thank you for posting an interesting technology/medicine article.
Whilst I was metaphorically fumbling in the dark trying to comprehend the nature of human progress narrated in the article, I also came across another article also posted in the same publication -livescience-which may also prove a good read ...
