    "The National Science Foundation spent $30,000 to fund a study done by the University of Washington and Cornell University's to measure "gaydar" - the ability of people to identify sexual orientation merely by appearance. The researchers confirmed that "gaydar" exists, writing that participants were about 60% accurate when attempting to identify sexual orientation by appearance."


    Hey, some of that stuff is money well spent.

    I've always known that "gaydar" was real, because I can spot one a mile away.
    There's also "drugdar" too. I can spot a pothead with uncanny accuracy.
