Tuesday Turnip

David K. Israel

It's time for another whimsical Tuesday Turnip Google search wherein I type a random phrase and we see what kind of interesting factoids "turn-up."

Today I typed in "more women prefer" unearthing the following:

More Women Prefer Dogs Over Husbands: An online poll released by DogCatRadio.com, shows more women would rather have a pet than a husband.

More Women Prefer Looks Over Money: The more money a woman earns, the more likely she is to prefer good looks to money in her man, a new survey reveals.

More women prefer clean-shaven men (70% of women prefer a clean shave, 20% prefer a goatee, 7% prefer a full beard, 3% do not care about facial hair).

More women prefer shopping for their children than for their spouse (71% compared to 67% for women aged 16-55).

Cable TV's Oxygen Network recently released a report suggesting that technology advertisers are missing out on a large market share by not marketing to women. The survey found that more and more women prefer technological gadgets to jewelry, clothes and shoes, nearly closing the gap between women and men and their technology needs and uses.

Given the option, more and more women prefer Caesarean section to natural birth.

More women prefer blue eyes (36 percent) to brown or dark eyes (30 percent).

When it comes to having their private parts examined, more women prefer a physician of their own sex. But for treating a broken leg, women don't seem to give physician sex a second thought, according to a Norwegian study of women aged 36 to 55.

According to a Lifetime Women's Pulse Poll, three times more women prefer to work for a man, with Bill Gates topping the list of ideal male bosses at 38%. But despite this preference for men, the #1 ideal boss is Oprah Winfrey with 58% of the vote.
