    Someone could find so many holes in this study. Chances are someone else was more qualified and had more experience in the field.

    Construction supervisor? I'd agree with that, you put a hot woman on a construction site, nobody is gonna get any work done, and job site accidents will increase with all the distracted workers.

    We had a good looking girl on a project about ten years ago. Every time she bent over I quit working. No matter which direction she was facing.
