Background: I was walking from Herald Square to Penn Station today and found myself behind a very attractive young lady wearing tight fitting white jeans, flouting one of my favorite assets in a woman. She also had relatively long hair, not thick but mid-back length, tied into a single pony tail.

Observation: Walking behind her, observing in the name of science, I noticed that (1) she moved her hips very well when walking and (2) her pony tail tended to bounce from side to side when she walked as well.

Correlation: Upon continued observation, I noticed that when her left buttock trended downward, while walking, her pony tail would swing to the right and when her right buttock trended downward, her pony tail would swing to the left.

Analysis: This seemed, on the surface, counter intuitive, as, without observation, I would have predicted the opposite.

Hypothesis: The motion of a walking woman's pony tail is in direct opposition to the motion of her buttocks.

Validation: Since I observed a relatively small sample set (1), I determined to expand that sample. However, being so intrigued with the results of the single sample (who went all the way to Penn Station in front of me), I failed to do so. I shall undertake that as a scientific mission and, hopefully, publish the results in a peer-reviewed journal soon.

Your long discourse could've been avoided if you just admitted you're a pervert. :D

I can't believe you never noticed that before. Think of it as counterbalance.

Two things at once!! I don't think I would have been able to notice that for concentrating on two things that nice at once.

CW, I admire your scientific analysis. You are a a true Renaissance man.

May I suggest a theme song for your new Mr. Science show?

More likely the theme song will be With Points of her Own (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBFL5cDKv98). :D

Never. You're way too healthy in (your) body and your mind.... :D

It would be an interesting experiment to determine whether the tightness of the fabric affects the acceleration of the buttocks motion up or down. I'm sure it had an effect on your speed of movement. :D

Ah, but what if all the people say, what a shame that he's dead, but wasnt he a most peculiar man? What will I do then.

Oh, never mind. I'll be dead! :D

Be careful guys. A man can get lost in there.

I will be your Blind Harry and compose a suitable epic in iambic pentameter.

Perhaps Dante would be more appropriate??

A post apocalyptic story in the style of Cormac Mccarthy. You and Penelope Cruz in a fortified Liquor warehouse. I'm still working on the soundtrack.

I don't know. I always viewed myself more as Otherguy Overby, banging Georgia Blue, prior to going out with Artie on another scam at Happy Valley. :D

We men build pyramids, bridges, skyscrapers, break the sound barrier, fly to the moon, dive to the depths of every ocean on the planet and after all that we can still be distracted enough to drive our cars into trees by that magic sight.

Excellent analysis. ;)
