Men's topic.

  1. Mar 13, 2006 #1
    I have a question form men around here: what are the good/bad things about being a man?

    As for me:
    Bad things:

    1. Having to put up with women who will say with all your efforts 'just friends'

    Good things:

    1. I don't have to go through the pain of laying babies
    2. I don't need to make a fuss about my hair, smell and looks. (for most men)


    PS Since we might want to talk about manly and proud things, women aren't really welcome to be here. Thanks!

    Zippers were invented in Akron, Ohio.

    In fact, that's how the University of Akron got it's nickname: the Akron Zips. Someday, USC is going to play at UA in UA's home stadium, the Rubber Bowl.

    We had a mobile diagnostic ultra-sound division - a former employer - in which it was standard practice to send the youngest, newest, female tech, to perform penile studies. These involve the use of a sonic conductor much like KY Gel.

    I care about what I look like....no girl wants to hang around a slob who smells horrible and doesn't take care of himself.

    Note that when I mean uncaring about hair, looks and smell, I mean it GIVEN the basic hygiene standards required i.e. Not stinky, greasy hair, or crappy looks.

    Its basic courtesy, and Common sense.

    Let me rephrase:

    Good: dating women
    Bad: all the women I date are named Frank

    Good: being horngry most of the time
    Bad: indecisiveness (but how do you choose between two great options?!)

    Nice Job Lisa, so clearly being 'no offense' with your white text. Did it occur to you that YOU were the one who started the women thread, and therefore I had every right to make the same for men? Regardless of my intention ( as you say) of 'being jealous' (Of you? I'd be mightly suprised), 'of not being creative' (PUHLEEZ Give me a break) 'Horngry' (what is 'Horngry'? A Guy hungry for sex? Did it ever occur to you that I have never mentioned sex in any of my threads?!)

    First point: What? Second point: No. I welcome anyone to challenge my statements with sound arguements. As stubborn as I may be, I will admit when I am wrong.

    Bad Point: Having to still deal with aunt Floe visiting.

    I use white because I want to say I'm not here.:rolleyes: sorry, it was good and bad things about being a man not you, I should have made it clearer.(I wanted to quote you but then I wouldn't be invisible.) see they're really jealous and that means they always want to have whatever women have(just like this thread:tongue2:) but more important they can't stand it when the woman care about someone more than them.(women are also so jealous)and even if you hadn't posted the same as my thread, I'd still say women are more creative and men are jealous(well they just have creative ideas)
    horngry=horny +hungry.

    :confused:
    Again you might think that my statements are directing at you. no, they weren't. It's so clear. That's why it doesn't make sense to you because it's not only about you.
    what I mean by that? see not men nor women don't say to a woman how awful she's in most cases and just try to put up with her, but it's not the same about men!

    :rofl: "horngry" I love it! It sums things up very well, doesn't it? :rofl:

    (Sorry, this thread looked like more fun than the "women's" thread, so I'm crashing the party...why would I want to hang around a bunch of women when there are lots of horngry men in this thread? :biggrin:)
