The first lists the kinds of studies that always make me wonder how people came up with them; I, for one, don't really care to know some of the things those studies/researches apparently found out. And, if the government is funding them, the government is an ass, to paraphrase the Bard.
The second? Well, that kind of clothing is a bit young for me, I think. And, although most males will probably follow suit, I sincerely hope that they look in a mirror before appearing in public. Too few people do that, IMO.

Reminds me of a Lewis Black comedy bit about a gov't grant to a state to find out why prisoners want to break out of prison!

I do believe it is Mr. Dickens you are paraphrasing here...

Mr. Brownlow: The law assumes that your wife acts under your direction.

Mr. Bumble: If the law supposes that, then the law is a ass, a idiot! If that's the eye of the law, then the law is a bachelor. And the worst I wish the law is that his eye may be opened by experience
