Rejection SUCKS! According to a study by a group of researchers at the Heberlein lab at the University of California, San Francisco, a male fruit fly who gets dissed by his lady counterpart turns to booze to make him feel more awesome about himself. And that lonely sting sticks! The next time these little drunk machos are put in a "gettin' thorax" situation, they are less likely to be able to get it in and get it on. The researchers think it's because the little fly is still hurting from his last "no, thank you, sir." Science.
In a related and timely note, ShowYouSuck (my boyfriend) just released a new track on MTVHive about eating his way through a breakup. You know the old adage: the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
