Michelangelo had his anatomy down cold

Ok, it's a slow news day.. the Discovery Channel reports measurements of Michelangelo's David which dismisses the notion that the statue is of less than heroic proportions:

"David is not really highly gifted, but he is totally normal. His penis measures 15 cm which, considering the height of the statue, corresponds to 6-7 cm in an adult," Gulisano told Discovery News.

"Here we have a naked man who is about to fight. He has an orthosympathic activation consistent with the combined effects of fear, tension and aggression. A contraction of the genitals is totally normal in such conditions," he said.

Memorize those words, boys, orthosympathetic activation. They'll come in handy.
