A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

A Thought Occurs

A friend posted a link wishing that "track pants were sexy, Mondays were fun, and guys were simple."

And I thought "Pardon?"

How many guys do you know who'll spend an hour getting ready for a night out, then collapse in tears because "I'm a mess!"?

How many guys do you know who own twelve pairs of shoes, and not one "walking" pair?

How many guys ever looked into the eyes of a woman they're in bed with and said "Honey--Are you sure this is a good idea?"

As a metaphor for trying to understand the nature of women, one should first acquire five jigsaw puzzles. Now remove ten percent of the pieces from each and throw the remainder through the laundry. Place all pices in a basket with large holes, shake it up. Now put on a blindfold and oven mitts and try to assemble a picture.

Guys are simple. It's dealing with the other half of humanity that makes us prime candidates for therapy.

Is that the number of pairs of shoes a woman requires for happiness?

A code to the Meerkat secret lodge?

I flatter myself that I agree with Mdm Nag on so many things

... apart of course on whether New York would be a happier and kindlier place if it had been allowed in 1781 to remain a distinguished City within the British Empire and later in 1963 been added to Jamaica when that Glorious Island was granted Independence

BUT I am bound to suggest that the answer is the feminine variant of Fibonnacci's sequence :

2 x 3 x 7

Whence the rareness of 4-leaf clovers

Sehr gute Eagle:
Alas, the Meerkats wiped out the four-leafed clovers in their campaign against the Leprechauns. And I can prove it: Look how rare four-leafed clovers are.
