Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

As Spider-Man 3 blockbusters its way through this weekend, something to ponder:

Kirsten Dunst, who returns as Peter Parker’s main squeeze Mary Jane Watson, is a natural blonde who dyes her hair red for the role.

Bryce Dallas Howard, who debuts in this sequel as legacy Spider-babe Gwen Stacy, is a natural redhead who dyes her hair blonde for her role.

I suppose the actresses could have saved on the hair treatments and just swapped parts for this movie. It would have added a meta edge to the plot.

From all this, I surmise that being bitten by a radioactively mutated spider results in acquiring superpowers — and an aversion to brunettes, real or fake. Personally, I don’t think I could handle that tradeoff.

Something I’ve lately gotten wind of:

Just as a ring on the left hand tells the world that one lady is married, displaying a ring on the right hand signals that another woman is single — and indeed, available.

While I’ve hinted before that I focus an inordinate amount of attention on women’s ring fingers, I can’t say I’ve noticed this subtle dating-scene hand-signing. I can’t find any recent online buzz about this, either; a jewelry industry initiative to push dedicated single-gal bands from three years ago seemed to fizzle without notable impact.

One more thing to mentally track. Can’t they make this easier on us guys? Maybe with color-coded body markings?
