Brains, Club, and Crazy: Why Men And Women Think Differently. This Guy Nails It. Women are much more complicated than men. Men are very simple. And you know why? It's because their brains are so different. First, I want to start with men. Men's brains are very unique. Most women don't realize that whether we are having sex or watching sports, our brains are made up of little boxes. We've got a box for everything. We've got a box for the car. We've got a box for the money We've got a box for the job. We've got a box for you We've got a box for the kids. We've got a box for your mother somewhere in the basement. We've got boxes everywhere. And the rule is: the boxes don't touch. When a man discusses a particular subject, we go to that particular box, we pull that box out, we open the box, and we discuss only what is in THAT BOX. And then we close the box and put it away being very, very careful not to touch other boxes. Now women's brains are very, very different from men's brains. Women's brains are made up of a big ball of wire. And everything is connected to everything. The money is connected to the car and the car is connected to your job and your kids are connected to your mother and everythingisallconnected. It's like the internet superhighway, and it's all driven by energy that we call emotion. It's one of the reasons why women tend to remember...everything. Because if you take an event and you connect it to an emotion and it burns in your memory and you can remember it forever. The same thing happens for men. It just doesn't happen very often, because quite frankly...we don't care. Women tend to care about everything. And she just loves it. Now men, we have a box in our brain that most women are not aware of. This particular box has nothing in it. In fact, we call it the 'nothing box.' And of all the boxes a man has in his brain, the 'nothing box is our favorite box. If a man has a chance, he'll go to his nothing box every time. That's why a man can do something seemingly completely brain dead for hours on end. You know, like fishing. Now they've actually measured this. The University of Pennsylvania a couple of years ago did a study and discovered that men have the ability to think about absolutely nothing, and still breathe. Women can't do it. Their mind has never stopped. And they don't understand the 'nothing box, and it drives them CRAZY because nothing drives a woman more crazy and makes them feel more irritated than to watch a man doing nothing. laughoutloud-club: The Nothing Box That Makes Women Angry

America, Anaconda, and Beijing: questionablefindings everything-is-connected penroseparticle My favorite thing is that Europe is spooky because it's old and America is spooky because it's big meduseld The difference between America and England is that Americans think 100 years is a long time, while the English think 100 miles is a long way." -Earle Hitchner burntcopper A fave of mine was always the american tales where people freaked out because 'someone died in this house and all the europeans would go ...Yes? That would be pretty much every house over 40 years old My school is older than your entire town. Sorry, you think *how far* is okay to travel for a shopping trip? American looks up at the beams in a country pub* Uh, this place has woodworm, isn't that a bit unsafe?' 'Eh, the woodworm's 400 years old, it's holding those beams together bedlamsbard A few years ago when I was in college I did a summer program at Cambridge aimed specifically at Amer- icans and Canadians, and my year it was all Ameri- cans and one Australian. We ended the program with a week in Wessex, and on the last day as we all piled onto the bus in Salisbury (or Bath? I can't remember), the professors went to the front to warn us that we wouldn't be making any stops unless absolutely nec- essary. We're headed to Heathrow to drop off anyone flying off the same day, then back to Cambridge All right, it's going to be a long bus ride, so make sure you're prepared for that." We all brace ourselves. A long bus ride? How long? Were Americans; a long bus ride for us is a minimum of six hours with the double digits perfectly plausible. We can handle a twelve hour bus ride as long as we get a bathroom break. The answer. "Two hours." Oh. derinthemadscientist English people trying to travel around Australia and wildly underestimating distance are my favourite thing marzipanandminutiae a tour guide in France told my school group that a particular cathedral wouldn't interest us much because "it's not very old; only from the early 1600s" to which we had to respond that it was still older than the oldest surviving European-style buildings in our country guana-sneeze China is both old and big. I had some Chinese colleagues over, we were discussing whether they wanted to see the Vasa ship (hugely expensive war ship which sank on it's maiden voyage after 12 min). They asked if it was old, I said "not THAT old" (bearing in mind they were Chinese) "it's from the 1500s." To my surprise they still looked impressed, nodding enthusiatically. Then I realised l'd forgotten something: ". mean it's from the 1500s AFTER the birth of Christ" and they went "oh, AFTER... ceescedasticity My dad's favorite quote from various tours in Italy was "Pay no attention to the tower- it was a scornful tone] tenth century addition." My last boss was Chinese, and she said when her parents came to visit her from Beijing they pronounced Chicago "A very nice village." blondegingersaxon This post keeps getting better 2thefingerfuckingfemalefury What I'm getting from this is both distance and time are Utterly Terrifying Source: penroseparticle America is so young.
