    Shopping sprees linked to periods

    BBC NEWS | Health | Shopping sprees linked to periods

    Women may be able to blame impulse buys and extravagant shopping on their time of the month, research suggests.

    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    And sensationalist crap like this is linked to the downward spiral of journalism and scientific integrity.

    So does this mean the retail clerks are at risk of getting biotched out?

    I can think of nothing more dangerous than a woman PMSing and shopping.

    This the kind of "study" where you can easily control the data and ignore contributing factors to shape any conclusion desired. This wasn't a study. It's a new ad campaign in a downward economy.
