The American government has wasted your hardearned tax dollars on some pretty stupid stuff, but the length and girth of this one tops them all.
The Daily Mail UK reveals the hard facts about how you’re getting screwed. Or at least how someone’s getting screwed:
As the country plunges further into debt and with the small task of securing a multi-trillion dollar deal still on the cards, it has emerged that thousands of tax dollars were wasted on a study examining the correlation between a gay man’s penis size and his sex life.
The study was among several backed by the National Institutes of Health who granted almost $900,000 in one year on this and other studies.
We don’t even want to know what the other studies may have been. We’re still reeling over this one.
It has not been ascertained how much of the $900,000 grant went to he 2009 report, called The Association Between Penis Size and Sexual Health Among Men Who Have Sex with Men, but the coalition release stated that at least $9.4 million went to a ten-year study that included the penis-size research.
According to Fox, the grant was administered by NIH’s National Institute on Drug Abuse, and went first to a group called Public Health Solutions and a researcher with the National Development and Research Institutes before going to individual researchers.
It compiled data from a survey of more than one thousand gay and bisexual men at events in New York City held for the gay community.
And now, let’s conclude with the highlight of the story.
Those who participated were given a free movie voucher.
And if they were lucky, they found Pee Wee Herman in the theater of their choice demonstrating the results of the survey.
