    "Diamonds are a girls' best friend." "A dog is man's best friend." So...who got the better deal? Why do you believe your response? Rather, what reason do you give for your response?

  • Communication in history and between generations; is it reasonable and possible?

    I recently saw a documentary about Christianity's influence/impact in World War Two Germany.

    I recently saw a documentary about Christianity's influence/impact in World War Two Germany. If two people can read the same words and come to different conclusions, what does that say about the re-telling of history? What does that say about our present and future? And finally, is there a distinction between individual participation and collective participation as a group or a lack thereof? Again, the same words were read. Again different conclusions were drawn by both with terrible consequences to both.

  • People of Gender Studies, how long does the "I'm sick of this stuff" attitude last?

    It's pretty much the same thing over and over. Does anyone learn? Does anyone profit from this? Maybe my time would be better spent how? Or is there yet hope that people can grow and learn and contribute to their society?

  • Men: Would you purchase make-up or under garments for your spouse or daughter?

    Women: Would you ever ask a husband or father to make such a purchase for you. Women may have to work odd hours. A man may be available to run errands. Is this happening often? How do you feel about it? Is it embarrassing?

  • What do you think of historical re-enactments?

    Are the participants showing disrespect for one side or the other? Do they serve an educational purpose? Would a politician who wore a Nazi uniform lose respect for participating on the "wrong" side during the re-enactment?

    Found at http://www.irissilks.com/funcenter/jokes... The Man Rules At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down Finally , the guys' side of the story. ( I must admit, they're pretty good.) We always hear " the rules" From the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note... these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE! 1. Men are NOT mind readers. 1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down. 1. Sunday sports: It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.. Let it be. 1. Crying is blackmail. 1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it! 1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question. 1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it.. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for. 1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become Null and void after 7 Days. 1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us. 1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one. 1. You can either ask us to do something Or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself. 1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials.... 1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we. 1.. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is. 1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that. 1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle. 1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear. 1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine... Really . 1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as baseball or golf. 1. You have enough clothes. 1. You have too many shoes. 1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape! 1. Thank you for reading this. Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight; But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

  • Regarding sexual relationships, what's the difference before and after marriage?

    Before marriage, a person can have as many sex partners as desired. A person can live with as many people as desired. After marriage, doing the same thing can be illegal in some places. Most people "frown" upon the idea of a harem whether populated by men or women. Yet it is "acceptable" before marriage? This difference... show more

  • How likely is it that someone could determine your I. D. or location if you ask and answer enough questions?

    I suspect that without care in asking and answering questions, that enough personal information could be divulged to allow a predator or entity such as yahoo or government to know your real life identity and/or location. I was wondering if anyone else had a similar thought or concern.
