A recent study has looked at whether men have the balls to look after their children.

A team from Atlanta’s Emory University linked men’s testicle size to how active they are as fathers, with small-testicled men more likely to bathe, feed and change the nappies of their children.

Data showed the reward area of the brain recorded greater responses in those with small testicles than those with large testicles. MRI scans of the men’s scrotums showed some men had three times the testicle volume than other men: another great win for science.


Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has taken a second trip to North Korea this month, apparently not discouraged after the US State Department voiced displeasure at his first trip earlier this year.

Those who were hoping Rodman may broker a release for imprisoned US diplomat Kenneth Bae when he met leader Kim Jong-un were left disappointed, with Rodman stating “I don’t give a shit” to reporters last week.

“That’s not my job to ask about Kenneth Bae. Ask Obama about that. Ask Hillary Clinton,” he told press at Beijing Airport, with an unlit cigar in his lips.

Rodman went on to describe Kim Jong-un as “a friend for life”.

“I don’t care what you guys think about him. I don’t give a shit about what people around the world think about him,” he added.


An AUT Psychology student is conducting a year-long book review into the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy.

While some academics focus on medicine or engineering, Emma Griffiths is conducting a study into heterosexual women’s thoughts on the trilogy.

The students’ Psychology lecturer, Panteá Farvid, came up with the idea, stating the thesis will “[help us] understand the Fifty Shades phenomena.”

“The added bondage and kink made it appear titillating and exciting,” Farvid added.

Honours study at AUT costs approximately $7000 per year.
