    You see, because seduction and attraction was all done WITHOUT WORDS for most of our evolutionary history...


    Sure... it was done with fat hanks of freshly killed antelope as bribes, and hefty clubs made from local treelimbs as... further inducements.

    Oh, sure, there is something to the idea of body language being evolutionarily older than spoken language. It is always nice to have some face validity to your conjecturizing. The best red herrings are real fish, after all. But can body language be taught, or is it ineffably innate? One might ask the same question about halitosis.

    That sounds pretty sexist of you.

    I think MM was chiseled by quite a few people.

    What am I missing? Are you saying that a female standing atop a 10 foot pile of $100 bills wouldn't attract any males?

    No no no. I'm saying it wouldn't be politically correct to acknowledge the fact. It could imply that males are unduly attracted to mere money.

    Few, other than numismatics, are attracted to mere money, but the vision of what piles of the stuff can buy is the attractant. A peculiarly human characteristic. My dogs wouldn't find money any more interesting that the daily fishwrapper.

    Well, as long as we're discussing TV scams--I recently ran across a full-hour infomercial extolling the virtues of Shungite. Apparently, it's also effective against the novel Covid virus...

    There's even shungite to attach to your cell phone to protect you from that horrible EM radiation
