Subject: BS: Women are from Earth. Men are from Earth
From: Dave the Gnome

Sorry people. The rumour is not true. We are both from the same planet. We are just different. Just as you look and think differently from your boss or neighbour chances are you will look and think differently from your husband or wife.

The washing machine need not be a mystery. In either operation or maintenance.
North is always in the same direction. But it does no harm to ask occasionaly.
If she asks 'does my bum look big in this?' it is not a test. It is a question.
If he is staring at your boobs he is not demeaning your value. He just likes boobs.
Remember we are all sometimes creatures of both simple pleasures and complex emotions.

Cheers

Dave I wish you the best of luck in dealing with women. May your guardian angel never desert her post.

As to the washing machine, for years on television the 'salesperson' would demonstrate its features and intricacies to the man. This was back in the day when no self-respecting, red-blooded macho man would have thought of stuffing dirty clothes into a machine, but somehow the TV moguls thought of the woman as being incapable of comprehension.

"If she asks 'does my bum look big in this?' it is not a test". Oh yes, it is. What we want at that point is reassurance that #1, it does not make it look big and #2, that if it does, you like it.

1) The washing machine need not be a mystery. In either operation or maintenance.
2) North is always in the same direction. But it does no harm to ask occasionaly.
3) If she asks 'does my bum look big in this?' it is not a test. It is a question.
4) If he is staring at your boobs he is not demeaning your value. He just likes boobs.

Answers for the above that are PC:

1) Read the directions.

2) Read the direction.

3) If she's making reference to you while she's talking with a friend . . . .

4) If you are topless, distract him by putting on a shirt.

"He loves boobs?" I gotta tell ya that we are ALL born loving boobs, male and female alike. It's the closest thing any of us will ever have to a "free lunch". I guess men never get over them but women do, especially when they get a pair of their own to lug around the rest of their lives. Still and all the are lovely, soft, accomodating. They are one of the most perfect shapes in nature and an artist's delight. What utility! Thank you ladies, all, from the small to the large, from the missing (God bless) to the unusual (never mishapen) each has it's own allurement, it's own admirers.

Beautiful, Slag. Reminds of a song written and recorded by the now defunct group "Pomegrante Rose."

Come home to the Earth
Love the Earth
Come home, let her beauty kindle your spirit
She is calling, the wind breaths your name
Come home to her breast and drink of her love

Wisdom and open, honest appreciation comes late in life, usually too late to account for much. It is a pity that youth is wasted on the young (per Mr. Clemmons).

I think that one is actually from Oscar Wilde. Mr Samuel Longhorn Clemens did say a lot of very funny things about his own youth and youth in general though.

When she says "does my bum look big in this?" she is not looking for re-assurance or a compliment - she is usually looking for a fight! Why not just have fight?

I don't recall seeing the "youth" quote in Clemmons' writings but I have heard it attributed to him. The phrase and others like it have probably been echoing down through history since the first gray hair.

Les said, 'Youth is wasted on the young' - George Bernard Shaw.

Actually, Shaw said it this way, as I remember:

"Youth is a wonderful thing. What a pity that it's wasted on the young!"

"I don't recall seeing the "youth" quote in Clemmons' writings but I have heard it attributed to him."

The quote is from GBS. However, Sam Clemens did say words to the effect: "When I was fourteen my father knew very little. Now that I'm twenty-one, I'm surprised to see how much he's learned in seven years."

I never say "does my bum look big in this?" I always ask "do I look good in this?"

For the women looking for nuance, there is PLENTY to be had from responses to that second question, and the nuance of the sentence itself is never "looking for a fight" or "my gosh I'm insecure" as it can be with the first.

You know, some clothes don't look so good on certain shapes... nothing wrong with the shapes, just don't buy those clothes!

From: GUEST,Chief Chaos

From Sherryl Crow:

God, I feel like hell tonight
Tears of rage I cannot fight
I'd be the last to help you understand
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Nothing's true and nothing's right
So let me be alone tonight
Cause you can't change the way I am
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me
But please don't leave

I have a face I cannot show
I make the rules up as I go
It's try and love me if you can
Are you strong enough to be my man?

When I've shown you that I just don't care
When I'm throwing punches in the air
When I'm broken down and I can't stand
Will you be strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I'll believe
Lie to me
But please don't leave

When my wife asks the question "do these make my butt look big I always tell her no, your butt makes your butt look big. I guess she didn't see the added marriage vow about being my straight man. Somehow she still loves me.

Woman's Rule #1 - No man is allowed to know the rules
       Rule #2 - Rules may be changed without notice
       Rule #3 - Should a man learn the rules they will be
                  immediately changed
