    Yes, I take issue with that one as well. :mad:
  5. Sent to my E-Mail

    Let us bow out heads...

    Dear Lord,

    I pray for Wisdom to understand my man;

    Love to forgive him;

    And Patience for his moods;

    Because Lord, if I pray for Strength

    I'll beat him to death.

  6. You never know about the President thing - one day, there may be a great woman leader.............

    Everything else is just too darn true!!!
  7. Well Ivan, you've provided the gloves and the ring. Now all we need are some contestants. :wink:

    I still got to think about which way to turn a wrench if I'm under it.

  9. Yes, but from above I turn to my right and from below I turn to my left. That alone is enough to confuse me :tongue2:
  10. From what I can see, it's also very convenient to be a guy.

    I'd like to see the list for the women. Here, I'll start it off:

    1. A women goes to a bar and thinks to herself, "think I'll get laid tonight". A man goes to a bar and thinks to himself, "hope I get laid tonight".
  12. And then everyone calls the woman a slut/whore but doesn't think twice about the guy
  13. *trying not to get mad, don't get mad.. it's just play... they don't mean it.... stop seething.....can't....control....feminism....* Aaaaaarrrrgh!!!! Stop it stop it stop it stop it!!!!

    I found this funny.

    The difference between men and women in 5 sentences:

    A man is driving up a steep, narrow road.
    A woman is driving down the same road.
    As they pass each other, the woman leans out the window and yells "PIG!"
    The man immediately leans out the window and replies,"*****!"
    They continue on their way, and as the man rounds the next corner, he crashes into a pig in the middle of the road.

    :rolleyes: Yeesh, do you know how many times I've watched guys tighten a screw they were trying to loosen? Um, yeah, I just watched. They get testy if you try to tell them how to do things, so I just watch, and smile, and then offer to give it a try, and they laugh, and just to humor me, hand me the wrench.

    Same thing for jars. What can I say, I have a strong grip from all that pipetting in the lab. They sit there struggling with a lid, and I offer to open it, and they laugh, then to get me to shut up, they hand me the jar assuming I won't be able to open it. *POP That was the sound of their ego bursting. :biggrin: :rofl:

    And I'll have you know that I can wear a white t-shirt to an amusement park, and not a single guy there would complain! :tongue2:
  16. Why are men happier than women? Tis obvious, we get to look at beauty all the time.
