Evolutionary psychologist mocks fat people, devours own foot
On June 2, evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller declared on Twitter
that fat Ph.D. students who didn't have the willpower to stop eating carbs wouldn't have the willpower to finish a dissertation, either. He later went on to claim that the tweet — and presumably, the negative reactions to it — was actually part of his research
, not a reflection of his actual beliefs. (In other words, it was a social experiment, as the kids used to say on LiveJournal.) And now, the shocker: Yesterday, Miller's superiors at The University of New Mexico told The Daily Mail that the tweet was not, in fact, part of any research project
Miller was working on. This is probably going nowhere good for him.
