Curves = brains?

Yet another of these studies that the BBC likes reporting, and that makes a scientist think Um... how statistically significant is this report?

This time it is liking the hip to waist ratio to intelligence.

On the plus side, the BBC at least has a quote from a sceptical scientist on the article.

On my completely unscientific, anecdotal view, I can't say I'm particularly attracted to a woman depending on her level of curvaceousness (although the Kate Moss physique is too scrawny for my tastes), but I am a sucker for smart women, particularly those with the bizarre judgement flaw that makes them actually like me.
