What seems to be one of the more unfortunate aspects of the women's movement is that women have taken on many of the more dangerous totems of men. Drinking rates among women are up. Cigarette smoking among women has increased relative to the rate for men. Even suicidal behavior has changed; whereas women historically used less lethal means such as pills, while the higher suicide completion rate among men reflected their use of more lethal means such as guns and ropes, the rate of suicide attempts among women with guns and ropes has risen considerably in recent years.

I read some time ago that generally men's body cope with booze far better than women's body. If that is true then health risks are significantly higher for drinking women than drinking men. You don't have to try to be equal in everything for the sake of being equal.

I appreciate being male and having masculinity, and wonder if women, or perhaps just young women that dress like boys (around here), can understand the power and value of femininity. Not cranking. Just curious.

For most of my adult life, I've resented forces that pressure people into just being Identical Economic Units, good for one purpose only, and disposable.

FBI pulling out guns on Felicity. Is this really necessary?
:(

Felicity Huffman awoke to FBI agents with guns drawn at her L.A. ...

There is always a scapegoat, unfortunately.
Although what she (and her husband ,dont forget) did is clearly an attempt to find the best possible shortcut so that her daughter can enter the university of her "dreams".
Of course, her "action" took away from others kids the possibility of entering these "prestigious" universities with their own merits, without cheating or bribery.

Try this European Map Quiz game. Embarrassed to admit that I didn't quite get 65% on this quiz. Would probably get less than 25% for Africa quiz.

Currently working on the US puzzle. For the life of me, I'm baffled where the NorthEast puzzle piece is supposed to go.

This is Mensa stuff. Please don’t embarrass us average people around here.

So you didn't get 2/3 of the Euro map either? Any clues or hints on the US puzzle? The South American map puzzle might be a bit easier. Even non-Mensaa types have a decent chance. Only 2 pieces. Brasil is one piece. And the rest of SA is the other piece. Try it if you dare.

Also failed there, I lost the non-Brazil piece, or perhaps mixed it up with the around 20 Oceania Micronesian island countries pieces, and can’t find it in that mess.

"The Royal College of Physicians claimed earlier this year that young women are drinking so heavily they are developing serious liver disease almost 20 years earlier than doctors would expect. "

20 yrs earlier than what? The liver is our only organ that can heal itself

There are many variables when your focus group is 18-24 (still developing) and given drugs. Most doc's can never see the baseline so the intial point of focus is irrelevant.

Im not worried about the women as much as i am the babys they carry. Big respect to a woman who can break habit for their child, cant expect that with this focus group, cant even drink here at 18

I'm pretty impressed that apparently there's a cruise ship company with a ship that has its own brewery on board.

Craft breweries are a good reason to sit down and have beers.

Women outdrinking men. Guys, time to do our share of the consuming!

Very observant and very correct.

"In the practice of medicine there is a differentiation of treatment according to the Yin and Yang of men and women.

There is also a difference in pulse. In the last fifty years, however, men’s pulse has become the same as women’s. Noticing this, in the treatment of eye disease I applied women’s treatment to men and found it suitable. When I observed the application of men’s treatment to men, there was no result.

Thus I knew that men’s spirit had weakened and that they had become the same as women, and the end of the world had come."

I learned about Hagakure from the movie Ghost Dog (1999.)
