Chicks Don't Dig PhDs

A recent experiment has found that the least effective pick up like to be "I have a PhD in computing".

...the top-rated man's best line was: "If you were on Stars in Your Eyes, who would you be?", while the top-rated female's winning question was: "What's your favorite pizza topping?" Failed Casanovas tended to be far less creative as they struggled to impress with comments such as "I have a PhD in computing"....

This may seem like a downer for all the single PhD students out there. However, I think this line failed failed because it was self-centered. It would be equivalent to going up someone and saying "I'm better than you!" and waiting for a reply.
