a store for men is needed

Recently I was on vacation in Branson, and one day the women were shopping at the different outlet malls.  Every time I find myself in this situation, I wonder why someone doesn’t open a store for men.  There is occasionally a tools store, but I still don’t want to spend all day there.  Even if I were to shop for clothes, it wouldn’t take very long.  (That’s just one of the areas where men and women are generally different.)

What I’m thinking of is a place where you can rent recliners for naps or to watch sports or play video games and/or eat nachos.  I think there’s a market for it.  I could justify spending a few dollars to do that while women look at clothes for hours.  Maybe we should open one — I’m certain we could make it awesome.

We could also sell new versions of the equipment in there — TVs, game consoles, games, recliners, etc., and have it delivered.  And we could sell off the used equipment at discount when it’s time to replace it.  If people can play video games, you’d surely sell some of them.  If necessary, you could occasionally show ads targeted at men, like for sports cars, tools, video games, action movies, flamethrowers, etc.  Ideally you wouldn’t have to show ads, but still, I could tolerate a few if it meant spending a few hours watching sports or playing video games instead of sitting around.

Why do women wear high heels?

Have you ever wondered why women wear uncomfortable high heels?  From what I’ve heard, those shoes are very uncomfortable and are bad for posture and bad for long-term physical health.  So why do women wear them?  Is it to be taller?  Is it to look better?  I figure it’s some combination of those things.  But that leads to another question — is it worth the trouble?

A study at Northumbria University has determined that men cannot tell if a woman is wearing high heels when they walk.  In the experiment, men couldn’t tell when women were wearing high heels, unless they happened to see the shoes directly.  And from personal research, I’ll say that men tend to not notice what kind of shoes a woman is wearing.

In related news, men don’t notice what kind of handbag / purse a woman is carrying.  I don’t know if there’s a study for that, but I suspect it’s true.  I don’t know any men who care or even notice whether their girlfriend’s / wife’s purse matches her outfit.  So why is it such a big deal?

Also related, have you ever noticed women who are dressed nice and have their hair fixed impeccably yet are dating a guy who looks like he just crawled out of bed?  The woman appears to be really concerned about physical appearance in herself but not concerned about it with the man she’s with.  Does that make sense?

If you have answers for any of these confusing issues, feel free to explain in a comment.

a guy’s fairy tale

Someone sent me an e-mail telling a story of what a guy’s fairy tale might be like.  (I don’t know who originally wrote it or I’d give them credit.)

Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful Princess… “Will you marry me?”

The Princess said “NO!”

And the Prince lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles
and went fishing and hunting and played golf and
played video games and dated women half his age and
had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up
and farted whenever he wanted.

men are more evolved than women

This may stir something up, but I’m not afraid of controversy.  Besides, facts are facts, right?  According to a news release this week, scientists have now concluded that men are more evolved than women.  Before we jump into the debate of what that means, here’s an excerpt from the article:

Women may think of men as primitive, but new research indicates that the Y chromosome — the thing that makes a man male — is evolving far faster than the rest of the human genetic code. … These changes occurred in the last 6 million years or so, relatively recently when it comes to evolution.

Genetics researcher R. Scott Hawley said, “Wow, that result is astounding.”  Are you surprised, too?

Now, I realize some of you don’t believe in evolution (or at least parts of it).  Regardless of that, scientists are just trying to figure out why men are more “evolved” than women.  Maybe it was something else.  Who knows?

Before you get mad at me, remember I’m just relaying info I saw in the news, for your convenience.  You can draw your own conclusions.  We report, you decide.
