    This should go in sidebar. It's not even MM specific (though very interesting).

    The coolest part is the selection-induced speciation. I didn't quite get the connection between higher brain metabolic rate and lower body temperature.

    He's suggesting that a lower blood temperature is required to redistribute the metabolic heat generated by brain activity.

    The brain...might overheat? What advantage is derived from such transfer?

    Yes. Brain tissue is both temperature sensitive and metabolically extravagant. Needs cooling.

    That's pretty interesting. Maybe this is a mechanism for K-selection in colder climates: build-in brain (everything) cooling. One would certainly expect different mechanisms in Mxs and Txs here.

    Yeah; in my experience, odd thermal responses are reasonably common in the extremely gifted. Worth looking into.

    Seems to have made up for a lack of physical beauty by mastering psychological seduction (lulz).

    "Despite this, religious leaders condemned West as a negative role model, taking offense at lines such as "Between two evils, I like to pick the one I haven't tried before," and "Is that a gun in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?""

    Zooey Deschanel. Resembles Ellen Denegeres/Katy Perry, so I'd be surprised if she weren't gay/bi.

    Verticalscrunch = eyeball height. Inverse correlation. Curvature follows this pretty well. Canthal tilt seems to have no correlation.

    Crinklesock is a beast unto itself, indicating starchild front. I'll give some examples here, but badger Aeoli/someone for admission to typed so you can see my entire thread on it.

    Canthal tilt will be incidentally inversely related to verticalscrunch by orienting a slightly longer axis of the eyeball through the vertical. Greater apical orbital curvature seen in negative tilt will also make eyes appear 'rounder'

    As to the examples of crinklesock you posted, I can't really detect any vein of similarity between the faces... care to give more clues?

    Also, looking back at this old post, I realise I should have more clearly explained that the MM I was catching here was the author of the piece himself; Michael Ferguson, a true melon's melon, caught red-handed measuring his own melon while engaged in meloning so melony it involves private islands and jumpsuit-clad mini melon-minions in self-driving electric cars (I'm not even kidding, look him up).

    He is very interesting to read as well. Lots of edenism.

    Ever considered joining his IQ-borg club and becoming a 'polymathican', Aeoli?

    I note he promises major-league WINNING, untold riches and a golden ticket to a sooper awesome island jeenious colony, complete with Segways n' shieet.

    Pretty standard melon fare, really

    With a name like that, I have to take Ophiuchus's contention of melonhead autism a bit more seriously.

    The parietal demands dominance of scale. Melons work as hard as they need to to sucker in the bottom feeders. In a pure melon society this might actually demand a modicum of generativity of something of value. Alas....

    I mean, even if you're going for cheeseball titles, the obvious optimum is polymathematician. Do all teh maths.
