Top 10 mysteries of Human Behavior

The 10 mysteries of human behaviour that science can't explain - Telegraph: "The New Scientist magazine compiled a list of the everyday aspects of life which continue to confound the world's greatest brains, including the reasons behind kissing, blushing and even picking your nose."

Oddly enough, some of these have nothing at all to do with behavior.

  1. The greatest mystery of human behavior I face is why my husband can't shut a drawer.

  4. I'm not sure I've ever met a teen who picks their nose and then eats the snot. I haven't even met all that many post-infants who do so. But, I suppose no one should actually look at what they're writing, for fear of actually having to think for fo a second. Or perhaps my experience in this regand has been unusual.

  5. Most husbands who "can't" shut drawers, of course, haven't been inconvenienced by open drawers, and have wives who find such drawers either inconveniencing or unappealing ethetically, and thus shut them for them.

  6. For fo a second, no less. Typoing is one thing, this sort of nonsense, or the recent BBC excitement over "conventional" food being seen to have the same vitamin content as "organic" food, when pesticides were always the real issue in that dichotomy, is quite another.
