Just amazing what science can find out these days, isn’t it?

Nearly a million women could be suffering from uncomfortable breast pain while horse riding, according to a new study.

Women with a larger chest were found to suffer more,

Who would have thought it, eh? I mean, really, it’s a big surprise, isn’t it?

  1. “The university’s Research Group in Breast Health is trying to establish whether there is a link between good breast support and good riding.”

    Why..?

  2. Another example of white male supremacy – in this case a lordly penchant for riding nags – to which wymyn must subscribe if they are to belong, keeps them in their place.

    Only sedan,chairs carried by repentant males are suitable modes of transport.

  3. There’s no doubt large breasts do present a problem when riding. They wobble about a lot at the canter.
    Why the generously endowed wear bras in bed, isn’t it?
    Where do horses come into it?

    Lady Godiva presumably managed it all right. At least I’ve never seen a painting of her with a black eye.

  5. Please tell me some bloke proposed this study, and was paid to look at women with big breasts bouncing up and down on horses. If so said chap should win the Turner Prize as thats a piece of magnificent performance art right there.

  6. So the proposition seems to be: “Scientists” expect the rest of us to believe they alone have the insight necessary to tell us how to understand the world we live in – even though scientists must first “study” subjects like this, to know what to tell us.

    Maybe it’s time to study that proposition.

    Not boasting, but I’ve never felt the need to wear a bra in bed…

    When I was at school, one of the lasses was bountifully endowed and also rather a good sprinter. Watching her do the 100m was a spiritually uplifting experience. Also mathematically. By observing when the oscillation mode of the sweater puppies moved from both up and down at the same time to moving in antiphase I could derive the eigenvalues of the coupled harmonic oscillator, plug in some reasonable assumptions for coefficient of elasticity etc. and work out how much each of her norks weighed. It was quite an impressive number. I offer my services to science in a similar vein today.

    Jim – “If so said chap should win the Turner Prize as thats a piece of magnificent performance art right there.”

    Bearing Turner’s intentions in mind, let hope not.

    The IgNobels on the other hand: they have to have a chance, surely?
