The things one can learn from a football column, II.

The 2005 Honda Odyssey touring minivan has 17 cupholders.

Fermilab, which runs the world's highest-energy particle accelerator, has games on its web site.

The California Tortilla restaurant chain, which claims to have scientifically and with complete accuracy predicted election outcomes (since 2002) by selling burritos named for each candidate after consulting with their campaigns about the recipes, calls Kerry the winner! Their burrito poll predicts John Kerry will become president as the John Kerry Savory Chicken Burrito outsold the George Bush Hickory Chicken Burrito by 1,868 to 1,738.

Forget that. The burritos did no better than Zogby's exit polling. OTOH, they did no worse.

Whooops, that was politics.

Back to cars and sex -- they go with football. A German magazine survey found that men who own BMWs and women who own Peugeots get the most sex, while owners (both genders) of Porsches get the least. Male owners of Porsches get even less sex than guys who own Kias.

But maybe that's only in Germany.

Cribbed from TMQ, the only column on NFL football writtten by a Brookings fellow.
