Science of attraction - sometimes it's right

My games arrived! That puts Mighty Ape up there with Home of Poi in terms of Whoah!Fast! delivery. So now I am the proud owner of:

Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 plus expansions
Planescape: Torment
The Witcher
The Bard's Tale.

One day I'll really splash out and buy a first person shooter. I was thinking Mass Effect might be quite good, after having watched Dr Wheel playing last night - it has characteristics that appeal to me in that it isn't all just running around mindlessly blowing away enemies like, say, Unreal Tournament seems to be (it might have hidden depths, but I never got past KILLMAIMDESTROY and got bored really fast).

So while there's a genetic reason for people finding each other attractive or not through smell, this has everything to do with genetic compatibility and (so far) nothing to do with the so-called 'alpha-ness' of the male or with his immune system being 'stronger'. Evo-devos, please note.

PS If you're embarrassed by reading about how I like to sniff my partner, think of it as character building. ;-)

In other news, how useful is EndNote? Is it worth me getting it?
