I'm still amazed at my late dad's ability to make my mom speak straightforwardly and in an intelligent manner before giving one inch to her position. He simply refused to play the game and she realized she couldn't play it. I miss him a lot.

My wife is a little bit this way, but ONLY in the most charming sense.

Otherwise, she is thoughtful, logical, rational and graces my life to an extent I'd have never thought possible before I met her.

Women aren't that easy to figure out. Treat 'em like gold, like the most precious gift you could ever receive in life, and typically you'll get along just fine.

The Top 15 *Other* Signs Santa Claus is Actually a Woman

15. Santa remembers it *is* Christmas. 'Nuf said.
14. Reads children's letters in office instead of in the bathroom.
13. Never explains what exactly you did to deserve that coal in your stocking; if you have to ask, maybe that's the problem!
12. Employs little people in a sweatshop and co-hosts TV talk show, "Regis and Santa Lee."
11. Despite the closet full of red coats with big black belts, *still* insists she has nothing to wear on Christmas Eve.
10. "Mrs. Claus" wears work boots, has a crew cut, and drives a '68 El Camino.
9. A man simply would not care if you were naughty or nice.
8. Actually seems to shake like TWO bowls full of jelly.
7. Bowl full of jelly, my ass. It's water retention.
6. Constantly whining about "equality" until it's time to clean out the reindeer stalls.
5. Matching shoes and belt? Only a woman would accessorize a pantsuit like that!
4. No guy would ever name his animals Dancer and Prancer.
3. Santa never, ever observed peeing off of rooftops.
2. The North Pole Blockbuster's been out of "The Horse Whisperer" for weeks.

and the Number 1 *Other* Sign Santa Claus is Actually a Woman...

1. With the way they build chimneys these days you'd HAVE to be Calista friggin' Flockhart just to get in!

Men and Women Compared

NICKNAMES
If Laura, Suzanne, Debra and Rose go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Suzanne, Debra and Rose. But if Mike, Charlie, Bob and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Goodwill, Peanut-Head and Useless.

EATING OUT
When the bill arrives, Mike, Charlie, Bob and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $22.50. None of them will have anything smaller, and none will actually admit they want change back. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.

MONEY
A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he wants. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't want.

BATHROOMS
A man has six items in his bathroom: a toothbrush, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from the Holiday Inn. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.

ARGUMENTS
A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

CATS
Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.

FUTURE
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

SUCCESS
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

MARRIAGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.

DRESSING UP
A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the garbage, answer the phone, read a book, get the mail. A man will dress up for weddings, funerals.

NATURAL
Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

OFFSPRING
Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends and favorite foods and secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

"If my Husband ever said this to me, he'd have a frying pan to his head."

One of the more annoying traits of American women is this obsession with being told that they have the kind of bony butt a man has. You keep trying to force us to say, "Yeah, from behind you look just like me".

THINGS MEN WISH WOMEN KNEW

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

2. Sometimes, we're not thinking about you. Live with it.

3. Sunday = Sports.

4. Anything you wear is fine, really.

5. You have too many shoes & plenty of clothes.

6. Crying is not the answer. Crying is blackmail.

7. We're not mind-readers. Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don't work.

8. Mark anniversaries & birthdays on a calendar.

9. "Yes" and "No" are perfectly acceptable answers.

10. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.

11. Don't fake it. We'd rather be ineffective than deceived.

12. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.

13. If you don't dress like the Victoria Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

14. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad and angry, then we meant the other one.

15. Let us ogle. If we don't look at other women, how can we know how pretty you are?

16. Don't rub the lamp if you don't want the genie to appear.

17. You can either ask us to do something OR tell how you want it done - not both.

You missed several:

How does my hair look? (only appropriate response= "Fine")

Is this dress ok? (only appropriate response= "Fine")

Do I look fat? (only appropriate response= "You look fine")

I am fortunate enough to live with a VERY wise man-- when I want reassurance, I get it! (If I want an honest opinion, I'll ask a girlfriend.)

I'm currently running the latest version of GirlFriend and I've been having some problems lately. I've been running the same version of DrinkingBuddies 1.0 forever as my primary application, and all the GirlFriend releases I've tried have always conflicted with it.

I hear that DrinkingBuddies 1.0 won't crash if GirlFriend is run in background mode and the sound is turned off. But I'm embarrassed to say I can't find the switch to turn the sound off. I just run them separately, and it works okay.

GirlFriend also seems to have a problem co-existing with my Golf program, often trying to abort Golf with some sort of timing incompatibility.

I probably should have stayed with GirlFriend 1.0, but I thought I might see better performance from GirlFriend 2.0. After months of conflicts and other problems, I consulted a friend who has had experience with GirlFriend 2.0. He said I probably didn't have enough cache to run GirlFriend 2.0, and eventually it would require a Token Ring to run properly. He was right--as soon as I purged my cache, it uninstalled itself.

Shortly after that, I installed GirlFriend 3.0 beta. All the bugs were supposed to be gone, but the first time I used it, it gave me a virus anyway. I had to clean out my whole system and shut down for a while.

I very cautiously upgraded to GirlFriend 4.0. This time I used a SCSI probe first and also installed a virus protection program. It worked okay for a while until I discovered that GirlFriend 1.0 was still in my system. I tried running GirlFriend 1.0 again with GirlFriend 4.0 still installed, but GirlFriend 4.0 has a feature I didn't know about that automatically senses the presence of any other version of GirlFriend and communicates with it in some way, which results in the immediate removal of both versions.

The version I have now works pretty well, but there are still some problems. Like all versions of GirlFriend, it is written in some obscure language I can't understand, much less reprogram. Frankly I think there is too much attention paid to the look and feel rather than the desired functionality. Also, to get the best connections with your hardware, you usually have to use gold-plated contacts. And I've never liked how GirlFriend is totally "object-oriented."

A year ago, a friend of mine upgraded his version of GirlFriend to GirlFriendPlus 1.0, which is a Terminate and Stay Resident version of GirlFriend. He discovered that GirlFriendPlus 1.0 expires within a year if you don't upgrade to Fiance 1.0. So he did, but soon after that, he had to upgrade to Wife 1.0, which he describes as a huge resource hog. It has taken up all his space, so he can't load anything else. One of the primary reasons he decided to go with Wife 1.0 was because it came bundled with FreeSexPlus.

Well, it turns out the resource allocation module of Wife 1.0 sometimes prohibits access to FreeSexPlus, particularly the new Plug-Ins he wanted to try. On top of that, Wife 1.0 must be running on a well warmed-up system before he can do anything. Although he did not ask for it, Wife 1.0 came with MotherInLaw 1.0 which has an automatic pop-up feature he can't turn-off.

I told him to try installing Mistress 1.0, but he said he heard if you try to run it without first uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete MSMoney files before doing the uninstall itself. Then Mistress 1.0 won't install anyway because of insufficient resources.

5. No fashion faux pas we make could ever rival The Speedo.

6. If we forget to shave, no one has to know.

7. We can congratulate our teammate without ever touching her butt.

When I turned two I was really anxious, because I'd doubled my age in a year. I thought, if this keeps up, by the time I'm six I'll be ninety.

When I was crossing the border into Canada, they asked if I had any firearms with me. I said, "Well, what do you need?"

When I was eight, I played Little League. I was on first; I stole third; I went straight across. Earlier that week, I learned that the shortest distance between two points was a straight line. I took advantage of that knowledge.

When I woke up this morning my girlfriend asked me, "Did you sleep good?" I said, "No, I made a few mistakes."

When explaining something to a woman,
a man may ask, "Do you understand ?"
Instead of a straighforward yes or no...

A woman will often reply, "Yes."
However this can either mean, "Yes, I hear the actual
words you are saying but I don't have the slightest
idea what the words actually mean."
or
"Yes, I hear the words you are saying and I disagree."

There is no right answer to that. As a woman, believe me, we know what our butts look like. When you're not looking, we (well, I have) grab a mirror and angle around in front of a full length mirror just to be sure. After crying some, I beat this phrase into my head: "DON'T ask if my butt looks big!" So, if you lie and tell us we have a tiny hiney, we know you're sweet, but lying. If you tell the truth, well, God help all of us.

This is not a good question to ask. If you are asked this question, hold your sweetie close and tell her you love her and that she is beautiful. That's what we're asking.

Immature love says: "I love you because I need you." Mature love says: "I need you because I love you."

ooh, now there's a pet peeve of mine. How many times have I heard women joke about how many boys they're raising, always adding in the husbands?

And what do you suppose would happen to the men who showed such disrespect to their wives, by talking about raising their girls?

Sure, men are just grown boys, but women are just grown girls. The men "play" with real trucks and tractors, and the women "play" with real baby dolls.

Yesterday, scientists for Health Canada suggested that men should take a look at their beer consumption, considering the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer. The theory is that drinking beer makes men turn into women.

To test the finding, 100 men were fed 6 pints of beer each.

It was then observed that 100% of the men gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became overly emotional, couldn't drive, failed to think rationally, argued over nothing, and refused to apologize when wrong.

No further testing is planned .

Dear Tech Support:

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed that the new program began making unexpected changes to the accounting modules, limiting access to flower and jewelry applications that had operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.9, but installed undesirable programs such as NFL 5.0 and NBA 3.0. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs and HouseCleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. I've tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

--Desperate

Dear Desperate,

Keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an entertainment package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Try to enter the command: C:/ I THOUGHT YOU LOVED ME and install Tears 6.2. Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications: Guilty 3.0 and Flowers 7.0. But remember, overuse can cause Husband 1.0 to default to GrumpySilence 2.5, Happyhour 7.0 or Beer 6.1.

Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will create "Snoring Loudly" wave files. DO NOT install MotherInLaw 1.0 or reinstall another Boyfriend program. These are not supported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. Consider buying additional software to improve performance. I personally recommend HotFood 3.0 and Lingerie 5.3

”I'm hungry = (a) Make me something to eat (b) Stop what you are doing, scrape together your last $5, and go drive across town and get me something to eat. -- I don't care if what you are doing is important.”

I get this one all the time!

Thanks for the bump. This hillarious. I'll share a story about hubby and I.
On the morning after we got married, I turn over to my brand new hubby and asked him, "Do you love me more now? (meaning, now that we are married and I'm now your wife) He replies NOPE! I was devistated! I said, "NO?????" He said, "I love you the same as before. Then he looked at my face and said, OH, OH, Wrong answer, right?" I said, "You're suppose to say, Yes dear I love you more today than yesterday."

We both have never forgotten that morning. We laugh about it everytime we bring it up. He now tells his friends, when your wife asks you if you love her more, the correct answer should be "Yes dear." LOL. Men! I swear. HA!

Good point! I certainly didn't mean it as criticism. When I need nurturing my husband has been there. Many days after a long tired shift at the hospital I have curled up in his chair with him and he has asked me "how's my girl?" I remember doing something similar with my father when I was a little girl. Please don't take offense, it wasn't said to offend. My husband and my son are my boys and I'm their girl.

Don't worry that I've taken offense. It's the very fact that the comment is so common and "normal" that bugs me.

The truth is that between some tension in my own marriage, and some stuff that I've read, I've become much more tuned in to how men are routinely bashed in our society. Listen closely, read carefully, and you'll find it's all around you.

Treat 'em like gold, like the most precious gift you could ever receive in life, and typically you'll get along just fine.

Yep, that's the theory, and it works most of the time

Personal and professional experience has taught me that there are men and women capable of absorbing all the best efforts their spouses can offer, while offering nothing in return. Sad, but true.

Outstanding, Colonel Wallace.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does.

This is an old nugget of cowboy wisdom from way back.

Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.

Truth be told, Colonel, my old fat furry black cat doesn't even know what it's like to be kicked. He is the most spoiled creature on the face of the earth with the exception of my girlfriend. Maybe I'm a woman trapped in a man's body. (Ugggh ... let's not even go there.) Can't be true, all of the other stuff you've mentioned makes me a man.

Yeah, lesbian. Perhaps I wasn't specific enough since my post included a reference to my girlfriend. But like I said, the rest of this "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" thread pretty much confirms that I am, in fact, a man trapped in a man's body.

LOL! I haven't kicked any cats either, my friend. I inherited a couple of black and white American shorthairs from a former parishioner at my Church who passed away over the summer, and after the shock of being transported to a strange new place, they're settling in nicely.

I don't think this impugns our masculinity, but just to be safe, let's not mention this to the troops in that special unit with the pink flag. If they ask about it, I'm gonna tell them I once kicked a Siamese for a 53 yard field goal. Against the wind!

The Cats Diary

DAY 752 - My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.

DAY 761 - Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded, must try this at the top of the stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair...must try this on their bed.

DAY 762 - Slept all day so that I could annoy my captors with sleep depriving, incessant pleas for food at ungodly hours of the night.

DAY 765 - Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was...Hmmm. Not working according to plan ......

DAY 768 - I am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good reason I was chosen for the water torture. This time however it included a burning foamy chemical called "shampoo." What sick minds could invent such a liquid. My only consolation is the piece of thumb still stuck between my teeth.

DAY 771 - There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the foul odor of the glass tubes they call "beer." More importantly I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of "allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.

DAY 774 - I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit. The Bird on the other hand has got to be an informant. He has mastered their frightful tongue (something akin to mole speak) and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room his safety is assured. But I can wait. It is only a matter of time.

Thank you for starting a good post. The responses have been humorus and also enlightning. It sums up my current status in life.

Until over three years ago, I lived in liberal areas about 25 yrs. The females would like you if you were willing to spend a lot of money taking them to the right places, were PC correct and put them on pedestals.

Before I moved to a "Red Zone" I didn't say what I thought about anything. The stream of attacks never gave time to me to make a response. If you can't discuss anything, what's the point of trying. Just stay silent and avoid the hassels.

After leaving the commie area I have finally found a place where you can talk about issues in a reasenable way.

This thread is great because it presents both sides of the issue by everyone in a direct, humorous and incitefull way. From my experience the women of the left think being a body, sexy, using four letter words and the ability to spend a rich hubbies money are the key to success.

Thanks again. Regards. LL

2) If you don't attempt to divine this and instead drive to a Restrauant of your own choosing, I hereby reserve the right to become an impromptu food critic and inflict pain and guilt to any degree I deem apporpriate.

3) I also reserve the right to mention your blunder at a future date & in front of others..to keep you from making this mistake again.

A Woman's Guide to Men's Gifts

Rule #1:
When in doubt - buy him a cordless drill. It does not matter if he already has one. I have a friend who owns 17 and he has yet to complain. As a man, you can never have too many cordless drills. No one knows why.

Rule #2:
If you cannot afford a cordless drill, buy him anything with the word ratchet or socket in it. Men love saying those two words. "Hey George, can I borrow your ratchet?" "OK. By-the-way, are you through with my 3/8-inch socket yet?" Again, no one knows why.

Rule #3:
If you are really, really broke, buy him anything for his car. A 99-cent ice scraper, a small bottle of deicer or something to hang from his rear view mirror. Men love gifts for their cars. No one knows why.

Rule #4:
Do not buy men socks. Do not buy men ties. And never buy men bathrobes. I was told that if God had wanted men to wear bathrobes, He wouldn't have invented Jockey shorts.

Rule #5:
You can buy men new remote controls to replace the ones they have worn out. If you have a lot of money buy your man a big-screen TV with the little picture in the corner. Watch him go wild as he flips, and flips, and flips.

Rule #6:
Do not buy a man any of those fancy liqueurs. If you do, it will sit in a cupboard for 23 years.

Rule #7:
Do not buy any man industrial-sized canisters of after-shave or deodorant. I'm told they do not stink - they are earthy.

Rule #8:
Buy men label makers. Almost as good as cordless drills. Within a couple of weeks there will be labels absolutely everywhere. Socks. Shorts. Cups. Saucers. Door. Lock. Sink. You get the idea. No one knows why.

Rule #9:
Never buy a man anything that says "some assembly required" on the box. It will ruin his Special Day and he will always have parts left over.

Rule #10:
Good places to shop for men include Northwest Iron Works, Parr Lumber, Home Depot, John Deere, Valley RV Center, and Les Schwab Tire. (NAPA Auto Parts and Sears' Clearance Centers are also excellent men's stores. It doesn't matter if he doesn't know what it is. "From NAPA Auto, eh? Must be something I need. Hey! Isn't this a starter for a '68 Ford Fairlane? Wow! Thanks.")

Rule #11:
Men enjoy danger. That's why they never cook - but they will barbecue. Get him a monster barbecue with a 100-pound propane tank. Tell him the gas line leaks. "Oh the thrill! The challenge! Who wants a hamburger?"

Rule #12:
Tickets to a Red Wing/Lions/Pistons/Tigers game are a smart gift. However, he will not appreciate tickets to "A Retrospective of 19th Century Quilts." Everyone knows why.

Rule #13:
Men love chainsaws. Never, ever, buy a man you love a chainsaw. If you don't know why - please refer to Rule #8 and what happens when he gets a label maker.

Rule #14:
It's hard to beat a really good wheelbarrow or an aluminum extension ladder. Never buy a real man a stepladder. It must be an extension ladder. No one knows why.

Rule #15:
Rope. Men love rope. It takes us back to our cowboy origins, or at least The Boy Scouts. Nothing says love like a hundred feet of 3/8" manila rope. No one knows why.

Here are two versions of the same conversation.

Female version:

Woman-1: Oh! You got a haircut! That's so cute!

Woman-2: Do you think so? I wasn't sure when she gave me the mirror. I mean, you don't think it's too fluffy looking?

Woman-1: Oh God no! No, it's perfect. I'd love to get my hair cut like that, but I think my face is too wide. I'm pretty much stuck with this stuff I think.

Woman-2: Are you serious? I think your face is adorable. And you could easily get one of those layer cuts - that would look so cute I think. I was actually going to do that except that I was afraid it would accent my long neck.

Woman-1: Oh - that's funny! I would love to have your neck! Anything to take attention away from this two-by-four I have for a shoulder line.

Woman-2: Are you kidding? I know girls that would love to have your shoulders. Everything drapes so well on you. I mean, look at my arms - see how short they are? If I had your shoulders I could get clothes to fit me so much easier.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Male version:

Man-1: Haircut?
Man-2: Yeah.

When your husband says this --- He really means this
"It's a guy thing." --- "There is no rational thought pattern associated with it."
"It would take too long to explain." --- "I have no idea how it works."
"We're going to be late." --- "Now I have a legitimate excuse to drive like a maniac."
"Take a break, honey, you're working too hard." --- "I can't hear the game over the vacuum cleaner."
"Honey, we don't need material things to prove our love." --- "I forgot our anniversary again."

What Men Really Mean

"I'm going fishing."
Really means... "I'm going to drink myself dangerously stupid, and stand by a stream with a stick in my hand, while the fish swim by in complete safety."

"Let's take your car."
Really means.... "Mine is full of beer cans, burger wrappers and completely out of gas."

"Woman driver."
Really means.... "Someone who doesn't speed, tailgate, swear, make obscene gestures and has a better driving record than me."

"I don't care what color you paint the kitchen."
Really means.... "As long as it's not blue, green, pink, red, yellow, lavender, gray, mauve, black, turquoise or any other color besides white."

"Can I help with dinner?"
Really means.... "Why isn't it already on the table?"

"Uh huh," "Sure, honey," or "Yes, dear."
Really mean.... Absolutely nothing. It's a conditioned response like Pavlov's dog drooling.

"Good idea."
Really means.... "It'll never work. And I'll spend the rest of the day gloating."

"Have you lost weight?"
Really means.... "I've just spent our last $30 on a cordless drill."

"I'm getting more exercise lately."
Really means.... "The batteries in the remote are dead."

"I got a lot done."
Really means.... "I found 'Waldo' in almost every picture."

"You cook just like my mother used to."
Really means.... "She used the smoke detector as a meal timer, too."

"That's interesting, dear."
Really means.... "Are you still talking?"

"You expect too much of me."
Really means.... "You want me to stay awake."

"It's a really good movie."
Really means.... "It's got guns, knives, fast cars, and Heather Locklear or Rene Russo"

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

For some fifteen years, my partner/SO and I have played this game. For him, the game is called "Think Fast", but I always get to go first, starting with the question, "What are you plans for today?".

Just before Christmas, as we were dressing for the day, I initiated a round of it. Well, to my surprise, he looked at me, burst out laughing, and said "I don't know... what am I doing today?"

My question, does this mean I've "won"? :o/

What Men Really Mean

"Will you marry me?"
Really means.... "Both my roommates have moved out, I can't find the washer, and there is no more peanut butter."

"Go ask your mother."
Really means.... "I am incapable of making a decision."

"You know how bad my memory is."
Really means.... "I remember the theme song to 'F Troop', the address of the first girl I ever kissed and the Vehicle Identification Numbers of every car I've ever owned, but I forgot your birthday."

"Oh, don't fuss. I just cut myself, it's no big deal."

* Rules To Be A Man


1. Don't call, ever.

2. If you don't like a girl, don't tell her. It's more fun to
let her 
figure it out by herself.

3. Lie.

4. Name your penis. Be sure it is something narcissistic and
unoriginal, 
such as "Spike".

5. If you lose something that belongs to someone else, tell them
you mailed 
it to them.

6. Here's a good pickup line, "My girlfriend's pregnant, will
you go out 
with me?

7. Drink Vernors.

8. Play with yourself. Talk about it.

9. Be as ambiguous as possible. If you don't want to answer, a
nice grunt 
will do.

10. Always remember: You are a man. Therefore, no matter what,
it isn't 
your fault.

11. Lie.

12. Girls find it attractive if a man has had more women than
baths.

13. Never ask for help.  Even if you really, really need help -
don't ask. 
People will think you have no penis.

14. Women like it when you ignore them.  It arouses them.

15. Vanity is the most important trait for a man to have. 
Whenever you 
pass a reflective surface, check your hair, clothing, etc.

16. If you don't like a girl, but can't think of a good enough
reason why, 
just come up with trite, meaningless explanations like, "I don't
know. I 
just don't like her personality."

17. If, GOD FORBID, you have to talk to a girl on the phone, use
only 
monosyllabic words and noises. Bodily noises are permissible.

18. TWO WORDS:  Hack and spit.

19. Everyone finds a man more attractive if he can write his
name in urine.

20. One sure way to make a girl like you is to go after her best
friend. 
She will then see what she's missing and love you for not giving
up on her.

21. Tell her you will call. Then, refer back to rule #1.

22. Say things like "Wha...?"

23. Don't wear matching clothes. People will think your
girlfriend picked 
it out, and it will cramp your style on picking up chicks.

24. Lie.

25. Deny everything. Everything.

26. Good break up line, "It's not you, it's me."

27. If you like a girl, tell all your female friends about her. 
Because if 
any of your female friends like you, they'll really want to
know.

28. Don't have a clue.

29. If you get a clue, pretend you didn't and disregard it.

30. No means yes.

31. Yes means no.

32. If you don't get sex whenever you want, your balls will
shrivel. 
Enforce this rule at all times.

33. If anyone asks, you have had sex in all possible positions
and 
locations.  Improvise.

34. Much like an orgasm signifies the end of a sexual peak, sex
often 
signifies the end of a relationship.

35. Feelings?  What feelings?

36. Tell this to your girl before you have sex, "Don't worry. 
If you don't 
have an orgasm, you won't get pregnant.".

37. Life is one big competition.  If someone is better than you
at 
anything, either pretend it's not true or kick some ass.

38. Gays are an unacceptable part of our society.  Take it upon
yourself to 
personally eradicate all of them from the planet.

39. DO NOT make decisions about relationships.  If you are
backed into a 
corner and must make a decision, stall.  If you still must come
up with an 
answer, leave yourself a loophole for escape.
Example: Question:  "Honey, will you take me out for a romantic
dinner?"
Answer:  "Yes, if you can guess how many sperm I produce each
day.".

40. Every sentence that anyone says can be contorted to have
sexual 
meaning.  Do so.

41. At any given opportunity, point out how things look like
various 
genitalia.  If, by chance, you have Play-Doh, make sure you make
an exact 
replica of your penis.  Measure to make sure it's right.

42. Lie.

43. "Love" is not in your vocabulary.  Don't even think about
saying it.

44. A general rule: If whatever you're doing does not satisfy
you 
completely in 5 minutes, it's really not worth it.

45. Diss your girl friend. Beg and plead until you get her back.
Diss her 
again.  Repeat cycle.

46. Lie.

47. ALWAYS apologize. NEVER mean it.

48. If you hurt someone, pretend you care. Don't.

49. Try to have a good memory, but it's OK if you forget trivial
things. 
You know, like your girlfriend's birthday and eye color.

50. Ignorance solves problems. If you can't see them, they can't
see you.

"Dear," said the wife. "What would you do if I died?"
"Why, dear, I would be extremely upset," said the husband. "Why do you ask such a question?"

"Would you remarry?" persevered the wife.
"No, of course not, dear" said the husband.

"Don't you like being married?" said the wife.
"Of course I do, dear" he said.

"Then why wouldn't you remarry?"
"Alright," said the husband, "I'd remarry."

"You would?" said the wife, looking vaguely hurt.
"Yes" said the husband.

"Would you sleep with her in our bed?" said the wife after a long pause.
"Well yes, I suppose I would." replied the husband.

"I see," said the wife indignantly." And would you let her wear my old clothes?"
"I suppose, if she wanted to" said the husband.

"Really," said the wife icily. "And would you take down the pictures of me and replace them with pictures of her?"
"Yes. I think that would be the correct thing to do."

"Is that so?" said the wife, leaping to her feet. "And I suppose you'd let her play with my golf clubs, too."
"Of course not, dear," said the husband. "She is left-handed."

Are Women Smarter Than Men?

What do "enlightened guys" say is an important quality in a woman? Intelligence. Well, I have recently realized that we men are deluded. Forget Mars. Forget Venus. We are from high school and women are from grad school. Why do I say this? Is it something having to do with perceived differences in maturity levels? Not in the slightest. It all has to do with the simple fact that women are smarter than men.

Think about it, guys. How do you make your muscles stronger? Exercise them. Our brains are the same way. But when it comes to so many things in life, men's brains are warming the bench while women's brains are getting a full cardiovascular workout.

Men have ONE shoe size. I'm a 11 1/2 wide. Simple. Women... well it depends. They're like astrologers doing a natal chart on the shoe. Where was it made? Who made it? Was it made in the winter or spring? What was the geographic elevation of the shoe factory? Was the leather from a happy or a sad cow? Eventually they find a pump with Neptune in its 4th house and the shoe-shopping mission has been completed.

Guys what's your pants size? You'll say 32 by 30 or 34 by 32 or something simple, basically the waist and inseam. But ask a woman... "I'm a size 5 on the eighth day of every third month when it's not raining, the tarot cards advise travel, and the designer's last name starts with an F."

And let's not even get into colors. We men are not unfamiliar with the fact that there are multiple shades and can probably tell 4-5 different ones in each main color group. But women make us look like simpletons. They carry portable physics labs with them and can apparently discern a variation of one hertz in the spectrum of visible light. What's the difference between eggshell white, bone white, and navajo white? Darned if I know, but a woman does. Men just aren't good with colors. J.C. Penney occasionally has those ads with the regular guy and the male models, and he finds out he can dress like them because of Penney's new fashion line for men that allows us to coordinate an outfit by matching the tags inside the clothes. You know what this is, don't you? It's Grrranimals for grown-ups. Tiger coat, tiger shirt, tiger pants, and you're ready to step out the door. Think of certain words you'd probably never have heard if not for women. Ecru, taupe, mauve. These are not words that come naturally to the male vocabulary. They are inserted there after associating with women, sort of like the medical terms you know from watching "ER." Sure, you can say them and sound cool, but you don't know what they actually mean. Take the tibula for example. I think it's in the leg... and I would assume it's bone white.

And don't get me started on purses. Go ahead, ask any woman why men don't carry purses. She'll turn into Jack Nicholson. "You want a purse? You want a purse? You can't handle a purse!" And you know what? She's right. We can barely handle briefcases. That's why every article of our clothing has a pocket. But still, even with just a couple of pockets, like if you're wearing jeans and a t-shirt, you will at some time or another become an amateur cop. Just observe yourself the next time you can't find your keys. As you start looking around the room, you'll do a pat-down search. Essentially, you're frisking yourself. But a woman just throws every item she comes across during her day into her purse. My mom used to have this huge purse when I was a kid. I stared into that black hole once. There were receipts, business cards, a potted geranium, a five-year supply of chewing gum, ten ounces of lint (in case the dryer ran out, I guess)... I just figured that Mom was God in training. She was collecting matter until she had enough for another big bang and then she was going to start her own universe. In fact, the bigger her purse, the smarter a woman is. That's why most women don't start carrying the really big purses until they're married, because they don't want to scare off any easily manipulated men until they've got us. That's why single women started wearing those little backpacks. They told us it was fashion, but it's a trick. They thought they could fool us. They took all those big purses and turned them into little backpacks. Very clever.

So the next time one of you single, "enlightened" guys says an important quality in a woman is intelligence, just face it... if she can dress herself with a modicum of class and color coordination, and she carries a purse (or she's got a backpack), she's not only intelligent, she's smarter than you. And if you should somehow end up getting the impression she's not intelligent enough ... that just means she doesn't like you.

Hmmmmmmmm

These are things, which you would never have learned were it not for the movies:

- All telephone numbers in America begin with the digits 555.

- The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building you want without difficulty.

- Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it will not be necessary to speak the language. A German accent will do.

- A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.

- Kitchens don't have light switches. When entering a kitchen at night, you should open the fridge door and use that light instead.

- Cars that crash will almost always burst into flames.

- Wearing a vest or stripping to the waist can make a man invulnerable to bullets.

- If you find yourself caught up in a misunderstanding that could be cleared up quickly with a simple explanation, for goodness sake, keep your mouth shut.

- Any person waking from a nightmare will sit bolt upright and pant.

- A cough is usually the sign of a terminal illness.

- All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red readouts so you know exactly when they're going to go off.

- When in love, it is customary to burst into song.

- When confronted by an evil international terrorist, sarcasm and wisecracks are your best weapons.

- One man shooting at 20 men has a better chance of killing them than 20 men firing at 1 man.

- Creepy music coming from a cemetery should always be investigated more closely.

- If being fired at by Germans, hide in a river - or even a bath. German bullets are unable to penetrate water.

- Most laptop computers are powerful enough to override the communication systems of any invading alien civilization.

- Freelance helicopter pilots are always eager to accept bookings from international terrorist organizations - even though the job will require them to shoot total strangers and will end in their own certain death as the helicopter explodes in a ball of flames.

- Most people keep a scrapbook of newspaper clippings - especially if any of their family or friends have died in a strange boating accident.

- All computer disks will work in all computers, regardless of software.

- Police Departments give their officers personality tests to make sure they are deliberately assigned a partner who is their total opposite.

- When they are alone, all foreigners prefer to speak English to each other.

- Action heroes never face charges for manslaughter or criminal damage despite laying entire cities to waste by their actions.

- You can always find a chainsaw when you need one.

- Any lock can be picked by a credit card or a paper clip in seconds - unless it's the door to a burning building with a child trapped inside.

- You can tell if somebody is British because they will be wearing a bow tie.

- When driving a car it is normal to look not at the road but at the person sitting beside you or in the back seat for the entire journey.

- An electric fence, powerful enough to kill a dinosaur will cause no lasting damage to an eight-year-old child.

- Having a job of any kind will make father's forget their son's eighth birthday.

- Honest and hard working policemen are traditionally gunned down three days before their retirement.

- If you are blonde and pretty, it is possible to become a world expert in Nuclear Fission at age 22.

- The more a man and a woman hate each other, the more likely they will fall in love.

Happy New Year Victoria! :-)

OK. Three fishermen came upon a mermaid, and the mermaid offered them one wish each so the first fisher said: "double my I.Q" so the mermaid did it and to his surprise he started reciting Shakespeare.

Then the second guy said: "triple my I.Q." and sure enough the'mermaid did it and amazingly he started doing math problems he didn't know existed.

The third fisherman was so impressed he asked the mermaid to quadruple his I.Q and the mermaid said "Are you sure about this? It will change your whole life!" the man said "yes," so the mermaid turned him into a woman."

HAPPY NEW YEAR WILLIAM!!!

The manager of a large office noticed a new man one day and told him to come into his office. "What's your name?" he asked the new guy.

"John," the new guy replied.

The manager scowled, "Look... I don't know what kind of a namby-pamby place you worked before, but I don't call anyone by their first name. It breeds familiarity and that leads to a breakdown in authority. I refer to my employees by their last name only ... Smith, Jones, Baker ... That's all. I am to be referred to only as Mr. Robertson. Now that we got that straight, what is your last name?"

The new guy sighed, "Darling. My name is John Darling."

"Okay John, the next thing I want to tell you is . . . "

MEN AND WOMEN

Women are honest, loyal, and forgiving. They are smart, knowing that knowledge is power. But they still know how to use their softer side to make a point. Women want to be the best for their family, their friends, and themselves. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They have sorrow at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. A woman can make a romantic evening unforgettable.

Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes. They live in homes, apartments and cabins. They drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin!

Women do more than just give birth. They bring joy and hope. They give compassion and ideals.

They give moral support to their family and friends. And all they want back is a hug, a smile and for you to do the same to people you come in contact with.

Men are good at lifting heavy stuff and killing spiders.

The strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workmen. After several minutes, the older worker had had enough.

"Why don't you put your money where your mouth is," he said. "I will bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won't be able to wheel back."

"You're on, old man," the braggart replied. "Let's see what you got."

The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right. Get in."

There were two guys on a motorcycle driving down the road. The driver was wearing a leather jacket that didn't have a zipper or any buttons.

Finally he stopped the bike and told the other guy, "I can't drive anymore with the air hitting me in my chest."

After thinking for a while he decided to put the coat on backwards to block the air from hitting him. So they were driving down the road and they came around this curve and wrecked. The farmer that lived there called the police and told them what happened.

The police asked him, "are either of them showing any lifesigns?"

The farmer then said, "well, that first one was 'till I turned his head around the right way."

Urges and Feelings

A father spoke to his son, "It's time we had a little talk my son. Soon you will have urges and feelings you've never had before. Your heart will pound and your hands will sweat. You'll be preoccupied and won't be able to think of anything else."

He added, "But don't worry, it's perfectly normal ... it's called golf."

During one "generation gap" quarrel with his parents, young Michael cried, "I want excitement, adventure, money, and beautiful women. I'll never find it here at home, so I'm leaving. Don't try and stop me!"

With that, he headed toward the door. His father rose and followed close behind.

"Didn't you hear what I said? I don't want you to try and stop me."

"Who's trying to stop you?" replied his father. "If you wait a minute, I'll go with you."

A Test For the Ladies

Ladies, this test is for you. Pretend you are a man, perhaps one close to you. Then answer the questions as though it was he who was answering.

1. Alien beings from a highly advanced society visit the Earth, and you are the first human they encounter. As a token of intergalactic friendship, they present you with a small but incredibly sophisticated device that is capable of curing all disease, providing an infinite supply of clean energy, wiping out hunger and poverty, and permanently eliminating oppression and violence all over the entire Earth. You decide to:

A. Present it to the President of the United States.
B. Present it to the Secretary General of the United Nations.
C. Take it apart.

2. As you grow older, what lost quality of your youthful life do you miss the most?

A. Innocence.
B. Idealism.
C. Cherry bombs.

3. When is it okay to kiss another male?

A. When you wish to display simple and pure affection without regard for narrow-minded social conventions.
B. When he is the Pope. (Not on the lips.)
C. When he is your brother and you are Al Pacino and this is the only really sportsman-like way to let him know that, for business reasons, you have to have him killed.

4. What about hugging another male?

A. If he's your father and at least one of you has a fatal disease.
B. If you're performing the Heimlich maneuver.
C. If you're a professional baseball player and a teammate hits a home run to win the World Series, you may hug him provided that:
(1) He is legally within the base path,
(2) Both of you are wearing sufficient protection,
(3) You also pound him fraternally with your fist hard enough to cause fractures.

6. In your opinion, the ideal pet is:

A. A cat.
B. A dog.
C. A dog that eats cats.

7. You have been seeing a woman for several years. She's attractive and intelligent, and you always enjoy being with her. One leisurely Sunday afternoon the two of you are taking it easy-you're watching a football game; she's reading the papers-when she suddenly, out of the clear blue sky, tells you that she thinks she really loves you, but, she can no longer bear the uncertainty of not knowing where your relationship is going. She says she's not asking whether you want to get married; only whether you believe that you have some kind of future together. What do you say?

A. That you sincerely believe the two of you do have a future, but you don't want to rush it.
B. That although you also have strong feelings for her, you can not honestly say that you'll be ready anytime soon to make a lasting commitment, and you don't want to hurt her by holding out false hope.
C. That you cannot believe the Jets called a draw play on third and seventeen.

8. Okay, so you have decided that you truly love a woman and you want to spend the rest of your life with her, sharing the joys and the sorrows, world has to offer, come what may. How do you tell her?

A. You take her to a nice restaurant and tell her after dinner.
B. You take her for a walk on a moonlit beach, and you say her name, and when she turns to you, with the sea breeze blowing her hair and the stars in her eyes, you tell her.
C. Tell her what?

9. One weekday morning your wife wakes up feeling ill and asks you to get your three children ready for school. Your first question to her is:

A. "Do they need to eat or anything?"
B. "They're in school already?"
C. "There are three of them?"

10. When is it okay to throw away a set of veteran socks?

A. When it has turned the color of a dead whale and developed new holes so large that you're not sure which ones were originally intended for your legs.
B. When it is down to eight loosely connected sock molecules and has to be handled with tweezers.
C. It is never okay to throw away veteran socks. A real guy checks the garbage regularly in case somebody - and we are not naming names, but this would be his wife - is quietly trying to discard his underwear, which she is frankly jealous of, because the guy seems to have a more intimate relationship with it than with her.

11. What, in your opinion, is the most reasonable explanation for the fact that Moses led the Israelites all over the place for forty years before they finally got to the Promised Land?

A. He was being tested.
B. He wanted them to really appreciate the Promised Land when they finally got there.

Don't give up now Victoria!

Never! :-D

BECAUSE I'M A GUY...

...I must hold the television remote control in my hand while I watch TV. If the thing has been misplaced, I'll miss a whole show looking for it, though one time I was able to survive by holding a calculator.

...when I lock my keys in the car, I will fiddle with a wire clothes hanger and ignore your suggestions that we call road service until long after hypothermia has set in. Oh, and when the car isn't running very well, I will pop the hood and stare at the engine as if I know what I'm looking at. If another guy shows up, one of us will say to the other, "I used to be able to fix these things, but now with all these computers and everything, I wouldn't know where to start."

...when I catch a cold I need someone to bring me soup and take care of me while I lie in bed and moan. You never get as sick as I do, so for you this isn't an issue.

...I can be relied upon to purchase basic groceries at the store, like milk, or bread. I cannot be expected to find exotic items like "Cumin" or "Tofu." For all I know these are the same thing. And never, under any circumstances, expect me to pick up a copy of "Parenting" or "Better Homes & Gardens."

...when one of our appliances stops working, I will insist on taking it apart, despite evidence that this will just cost me twice as much once the repair person gets here and has to put it back together.

...I don't think we're all that lost, and no, I don't think we should stop and ask someone. Why would you listen to a complete stranger--how could HE know where we're going?

...I do NOT want to visit your mother, or have your mother come visit us, or talk to her when she calls, or think about her any more than I have to. Whatever you got her for Mother's day is okay. I don't need to see it. Did you remember to pick up something for my mom, too?

...you don't have to ask me if I liked the movie. Chances are, if you're crying at the end of it, I didn't.

...I think what you're wearing is fine. I thought what you were wearing five minutes ago was fine, too. Either pair of shoes is fine. With the belt or without it looks fine. Your hair is fine. You look fine. Can we just go now?

...and this is, after all, the 90's, I will share equally in the housework. You do the laundry, the cooking, the cleaning, and the dishes. I'll do the rest.

"You flip a nickel, and heads means you stay with him and tails means you try the next one."

Carolyn, 8

HOW DID YOUR MOM AND DAD MEET?

"They were at a dance party at a friend's house. Then they went for a drive, but their car broke down...It was a good thing, because it gave them a chance to find out about their values."
Lottie, 9

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?

"On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date."

"Many daters just eat pork chops and french fries and talk about love."
Craig, 9

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

"Never kiss in front of other people. It's a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you...If nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours."
Kally, 9

CONFIDENTIAL OPINIONS ABOUT LOVE

"I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when 'The Simpsons' is on TV."

A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counseling came up.

"Oh, we'll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship," the wife explained. "He was a communications major in college and I majored in theater arts.

He communicates real well and I just act like I'm listening."

A man is driving up a steep, narrow mountain road. A woman is driving down the same road. As they pass each other, the woman leans out of the window and yells "PIG!!"

The man immediately leans out of his window and replies, "WITCH!!"

They each continue on their way, and as the man rounds the next corner, he crashes into a pig in the middle of the road.

If men would only listen.

One reason the Military Services have trouble operating jointly is that they don't speak the same language. For example, if you told Navy personnel to "secure a building," they would turn off the lights and lock the doors. The Army would occupy the building so no one could enter. Marines would assault the building, capture it, and defend it with suppressive fire and close combat. The Air Force, on the other hand, would take out a three year lease with an option to buy.

Why Pumpkins Are Better Than Men

1. Every year you get a brand new crop to choose from.

2. No matter what your mood, pumpkins are always ready to greet you with a smile.

3. One usually makes a better pie.

4. They are always on the doorstep there waiting for you!

5. If you don't like the way he looks, you just carve up another face.

6. If he starts smelling up your place, you can just throw him out.

7. From the start, you know a pumpkin has an empty, mush filled head.

The proud father brought home a backyard swing set for his children and immediately started to assemble it with all the neighborhood children anxiously waiting to play on it.

After several hours of reading the directions, attempting to fit bolt A into slot B, etc., he finally gave up and called upon an old handyman working in a neighboring yard.

The old-timer came over, threw the directions away, and in a short while had the set completely assembled.

It's beyond me," said the father, "how you got it together without even reading instructions."

"To tell the truth," replied the old-timer, "I can't read, and when you can't read, you've got to think."

If men ruled the world

Any fake phone number a girl gave you would automatically forward your call to her real number.
Nodding and looking at your watch would be deemed an acceptable response to "I love you."
Hallmark would make "Sorry, what was your name again?" cards.
When your girlfriend really needed to talk to you during the game, she'd appear in a little box in the corner of the screen during a time-out.
Breaking up would be a lot easier. A smack to the ass and a "Nice hustle, you'll get 'em next time" would pretty much do it.
Birth control would come in ale or lager.
Each year, your raise would be pegged to the fortunes of the NFL team of your choice.
The funniest guy in the office would get to be CEO.
"Sorry I'm late, but I got really wasted last night" would be an acceptable excuse for tardiness.
At the end of the workday, a whistle would blow and you'd jump out your window and slide down the tail of a brontosaurus right into your car, just like Fred Flintstone.
It'd be considered harmless fun to gather 30 friends, put on horned helmets, and go pillage a nearby town.
Lifeguards could remove citizens from beaches for violating the "public ugliness" ordinance.
Tanks would be far easier to rent.
Garbage would take itself out.
Instead of beer belly, you'd get "beer biceps."
Instead of an expensive engagement ring, you could present your wife-to-be with a giant foam hand that said, "You're #1!"
Valentine's Day would be moved to February 29th so it would only occur every fourth year.
On Groundhog Day, if you saw your shadow, you'd get the day off to go drinking. This goes for Mother's Day, too.
St. Patrick's Day, however, would remain exactly the same. But it would be celebrated every month.
Cops would be broadcast live, and you could phone in advice to the pursuing cops. Or to the crooks.
Two words: Ally McNaked.
Regis and Kathie Lee would be chained to a cement mixer and pushed off the Golden Gate Bridge for the most lucrative pay-per-view event in world history.
The victors in any athletic competition would get to kill and eat the losers.
The only show opposite "Monday Night Football" would be "Monday Night Football from a Different Camera Angle."
It would be perfectly legal to steal a sports car, as long as you returned it the following day with a full tank of gas.
Every man would get four real "Get Out of Jail Free" cards per year.
When a cop gave you a ticket, every smart-aleck answer you responded with would actually reduce your fine. As in:
Cop: "You know how fast you were going?"
You: "All I know is, I was spilling my beer all over the place."
Cop: "Nice one. That's $10 off."
Faucets would run "Hot," "Cold," and "100 proof."
The Statue of Liberty would get a bright red, 40-foot thong.
People would never talk about how "fresh" they felt.
Telephones would automatically cut off after 30 seconds of conversation.
Daisy Duke shorts would never again go out of style.

Who's On First -- Star Trek Style

Kirk - Ah... hello Mister Spock.

Spock - Good day, Captain.

Kirk - Are you an avid baseball fan?

Spock - Baseball is a tactical game played on a geometric pattern of 4 sides with a spherical object. The purpose is to knock the 's**t out of' the object amidst loud verbalizations of 'Hurrah' and 'Knock 'em on their a**.' Is this correct?

Kirk - Indeed. We are in the process of learning about one of the baseball teams from old Earth.

Spock - Oh? I am quite versed with old Earth history... perhaps I may be of assistance.

Kirk - That's the idea.

Spock - Very well... proceed.

Kirk - Alright... Who's on first.

Spock - I am unable to determine who is on first without proper information concerning the team and year, sir.

Kirk - So?

Spock - Perhaps we could start with who the team is, and I can test the accuracy.

Kirk - No... Who's on first.

Spock - I do not know.

Kirk - No... he's third base.

Spock - Who is?

Kirk - No... he's first base.

Spock - Who is?

Kirk - Correct.

Spock - Who is correct?

Kirk - Sometimes.

Spock - Who is sometimes?

Kirk - No... Who is first baseman. I'm not familiar with Sometimes' identity.

Spock - Who's identity?

Kirk - No... him I know... he's first baseman.

Spock - Who is?

Kirk - Right.

Spock - Perhaps we can discuss the identity of the second baseman. Kirk - What.

Spock - I said the second baseman.

Kirk - What.

Spock - This is highly illogical. You have no apparent auditory disfunction, sir. Now, as I asked... who is the second baseman?

Kirk - No... you didn't ask that, and Who is the first baseman.

Spock - I am not familiar with that piece of information, sir.

McCoy - Dammit, Spock! You messed up the whole setup there!

Spock - Forgive me Doctor... I am not a comedian.

McCoy - Obviously.

Spock - That much is certain.

McCoy - Just get back to the skit.

Spock - Very well. Captain... I ask you... politely... who is the second baseman?

Kirk - No... Who is the first baseman. What is the second baseman.

Spock - That is incorrect, Captain. The second baseman is obviously a sentient being, and therefore should be referred to as who, and not what. 'Who is the second baseman,' not 'what is the second baseman.'

Kirk - Wrong, Spock. Who is the first baseman, and What is the second baseman.

Spock - That statement is most illogical.

Kirk - Okay... wait a minute. We'll get Scotty... he's Scottish.. he must love baseball. Oh Mister Scott...

Scott - Aye, Cap'n?

Kirk - Who is the first baseman of the team we were talking about.

Scott - Aye, Cap'n. It ain't never been any other way!

Kirk - You see, Spock?

Spock - Yes... Mister Scott seems to know the material well.

Alright, Mister Scott... who is the second baseman? Scott - Ach! No, Mister Spock! That be What you're talking about!

Spock - I know that be what... er... is what I'm talking about. I am very intelligent, and rarely lose track of what I am talking about.

Scott - Ach! Don't bring track inta this! That be a bloomin' field event!

Spock - What has this got to do with field events?

Scott - Ach! No! What's the second baseman!

Spock - Again, I note that a person should be referred to as 'who' and not 'what' Mister Scott.

Scott - Only if he's tha first baseman, Mister Spock!

Spock - What you are saying is most illogical.

Scott - Ach! No! What's a real bright fella!

Spock - Who is a 'real bright fella' Mister Scott?

Scott - No! Who... now he's a real dope, sir!

Spock - Who is?

Scott - Right!

Spock - You are relieved, Mister Scott.

Scott - Aye, sir.

Spock - Sir... this is most illogical, and I am no longer interested in learning who the second baseman is. I am also growing impatient.

Kirk - No... Who's the first baseman.

Spock - Very well sir. Good day, gentlemen, or whoever you are.

[Spock leaves.]

Kirk - Whoever! I forgot about him! Wait... I don't remember a Whoever on the team...

This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it.

Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did.

Somebody got angry about this, because it was Everybody's job.

Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn't do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done!

The problem with just acking for what we need is that most men believe whatever is asked for can be reasoned away. We don't want to reason about you remembering our birthday anymore than you want to negitiate whether you can watch the big game. But you constantly act like we are bad becasue we don't share your every value. Problem is we see the situation in rverse.

I am a sports nut - but when I first got married, my husband was Mr. Congeniality until there was another guy in the house then it was "I bet you don't know this", and channel surfing while I am up getting beers for him and the guest and ragging me like I was an airhear and I come back. I put a stop to it by studying up on his favorite team and playing. Tell me this back. and when I could finally get him several times during the game. He stopped.

Men are perpetually reasserting the pecking order based on trivia recall rather than the content of one's character. When you admit that bruising your ego is the same thing as hurting my feelings, and product research is the same thing as shopping, and when you stop making obsene comments about good looking models and constant jokes about the looks of less than godess female public figures that you never make about les than god male public figures then we will stop all of the "game playing" you claim we do but don't see that you do yourself.

Your definition of "maybe" should be revised to: Maybe = You make up my mind for me, but you had better be right!
