Floppy Business

Jane Eaton Hamilton
From:   Vintage, 97/98.


Average weight of a Chinese man's testicles (in grams): 19.01
Of a Dane's: 42

A) who were the people measuring them what type of scale how precise was it what was the name of the airline flying the team from country to country how were the subjects chosen were there controls how much was each subject paid how big was the sampling was it random are the results really average is it guaranteed what was the margin of error where did the funding come from what effect does size have on fertility what does it mean to a canadian man to a canadian woman are there applications in day to day life things we should know

B) if a man has less to lug around does it mean he'll live longer less strain on his heart does it mean he's worried about exposure in locker rooms a chinese in a dane's locker room undressed for instance is there a scene or is it more embarrassing for danes do they believe they're overendowed did the scale groan did a research assistant go ah when they showed her in fact were women allowed on the project if a danish man marries a chinese virgin does she hide in the bathroom does he admit they were measured scientifically how does the night go are testicles all that's big or little according to nation what about penises what about vaginas etc
