9 out of 10 women don't know, don't understand don't get and are not attracted to 'cool cars.' Most women will like the obvious status appeal of a BMW, Benz, Audi, Lexus, etc... And perhaps be turned off by the really high end stuff (Rolls, Ferrari...) But the thing you'll attract most in the high-end sports cars (Porsche Turbo, GT2, GT3, Carrera GT, Ferrari, Mercedes AMGs etc...) will be 14 year old boys.

It would be more accurate to say that many exceptional people who major in music or engineering go on to medical school. You just misunderstand the statement, and it was unclear so.... To be wholly accurate and difficult to misinterpret the statement would be: 'exceptional students who intend to go to medical...
Quote: Originally Posted by lawyerdad Why, because it runs contrary to your blind prejudices? Among many other things, becoming an accomplished musician reguires a level of discipline and focus that would well serve one aiming for medical school. Depending on what kind of medicine one intends to practice, manual dexterity isn't a bad thing to have either.
