    Fellas, if your girlfriend ever pulls a knife on you, pull out some ham and bread. Her womanly instincts will kick in and she`ll make you a sandwich. Crisis averted.

    This is very old. Still very applicable, though, and it`s probably a good idea to re-post it from time to time.

    @Gerry,
    That`s VERY DANGEROUS advice!

    Oh, Gerry, whatever are we going to do with you? As to this list, I didn`t get past the Columbus/directions one, because he actually *did* need directions. He was trying to get to the East Indies and ended up in South America, hence the misguided naming of the natives he found there as `Indians`.

    @Ani: That`s the joke. Men tend to rather get lost than to ask.

    Do they? Has anyone ever bothered to try to find out? Or is it just one of those "everyone knows that x is true about <insert group here>" things, i.e. an unsubstantiated stereotype that`s popular in that time and place?

    I work in a city centre business that opens later than most. We often get people coming in to ask for directions to something else open late (e.g. theatre, restaurant). About half of those people are men and that`s been true for at least the 20 years I`ve been working there. The only change I can think of is that it happens less often in the last few years because it`s become common to carry a handheld computer that you can get directions from.

    Pretty spot on, mainly about just effing say it... and "what`s wrong? - Nothing" means nothing is wrong. How is that so hard to understand? Hints wont work, speaking does.

    Also should be added:

    Men are simple creatures, we do things one by one, not all at once.

    One of the things that cause a lot of hardship, women can juggle ten things and think twenty more. Men do things in serial nature, women are more parallel.

    I think it was that horrible last season of how i met your mother but there was an excellent advice. When woman comes and complains about her day, don`t start fixing it.. Just say "that sucks" and give her a hug. Works on other "empty" complaints, noticed that it`s what most people actually want, no solutions but sympathy.

    Not really. There`s good bits in it, but a lot is just lazy stereotyping and some of the good bits aren`t really sexed. Actually, none of it`s sexed. Some of it is gendered, though.

    "Peach" and "Pumpkin" are silly examples. The colours are the colour of the fruit, obviously. The best example would be "taupe". I only know what colour that is because I didn`t know what colour that is and I have a habit of finding out things I don`t know. I`ll probably forget it again because I don`t care what colour it is.

    If you ask me what I`m thinking, it won`t be about football and it probably won`t be about motorsport. If I`m not doing anything in particular, it`ll probably be whatever triviality happens to flitter through my head at the time. Right now, that`s the biggest ever flying animal pooping on a car like a pigeon. I`ve no idea why.

    My point? Stereotypes don`t apply to anyone,

    The crappy sexist stereotyping of today can become mildly interesting when you compare it with the crappy sexist stereotyping of the past. No prize for guessing that in the past the prevailing stereotype was exactly the opposite.

    It`s a symptom of the change in the dominant direction of sexism, that`s all.

    In reality, few if any people can multitask conscious tasks at all and the ability to timeslice conscious tasks isn`t sex-specific. The results of actual studies on timeslicing conscious tasks don`t even show a correlation with sex - it`s not even gendered, let alone the absolutely sexed thing it`s commonly believed to be. Nor is it automatically better, since it inevitably res

    Ah, the usual IAB bugginess. The last sentence, partially eaten by the IAB bugmonster, should read:

    Nor is it automatically better, since it inevitably results in doing each task less well.

    Other than hormones and procreation, I have no idea why men and women even interact with one another on a daily basis. Men are too simple, women are too complicated.

    Like George Carlin said, "women are crazy and men are simple, and the reason woman are crazy is that men are simple".

    Yeah, I took some license...

    Nobody is "men" or "women". Your ludicrous blanket statements are just the silly stereotypes that you`re using instead of thought. Other people in various times and places have thought the same thing with the sexes the other way around, for the same reason.

    It`s all drating dumb. People should be capable of better than that. We have minds - why turn them off in favour of pretending that the entire human species is just two entities, that there are no individuals? It`s normal to do that (although the split and the stereotypes vary, the idea remains the same), but it`s irrational to the point of being arguably insane.

    You`re better than many - you don`t proclaim that one sex (no people, remember) is superior to the other.

    @maggierose78

    I have some serious bad news for you... Women only THINK men are simple because that`s what all those hardly funny comedians and various sitcoms teach you to think. If every woman knows what every man wants/needs, then why do we see so many women out there crying about how they just don`t understand why their husband does _____ ??? Men are not overly simplistic... And women are not really all that overly complex... We are all just about the same level of complexity on average... The fact that such ghastly generalizations have become the norm is part of the problem with gender inequality... Everyone wants to believe we are so vastly different when we really aren`t...

    Some of those were quite funny, but that doesn`t negate a lot of truth about how most men operate.

    Re: toilet seats. Men, don`t be jerks. Unlike y`all, who if the seat is down, you just have to aim better, when the seat is up, and we women don`t notice, we FALL INTO THE TOILET.
