    grr, i'll have revenge I always do. . .

    Rule 1 for woman. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

    Unfortunetly the answe is yes.

    I could be in the forest, on an airplane, in a basement, driving down the freeway or anywhere else on this planet and you can call up my ex wife and she will tell you, "Yeppers, that boy is not only wrong but a serious idiot."

    Its not where you are that makes you wrong, its the fact that you are you that makes you wrong.


    Love and light to each of you,

    Well, if the man is in the forest and the woman is with her female friends, do these translations still apply?

    We need REALLY MEANS I want

    We need to talk REALLY MEANS I need to complain

    Do what you want REALLY MEANS You'll pay for this later.

    You have to learn to communicate. REALLY MEANS Just agree with me.

    Do you love me? REALLY MEANS I'm going to ask for something expensive.

    I'll be ready in a minute. REALLY MEANS Be patient I'll be a while.

    Am I a little fat? REALLY MEANS Tell me I'm beautiful.

    I'm sorry. REALLY MEANS You'll be sorry.

    Do you like this recipe? REALLY MEANS It's easy to fix, so get used to it.

    On a transatlantic flight, a plane passes through a severe thunderstorm. The turbulence is awful, and things go from bad to worse when one wing is struck by lightning.
    One woman in particular completely loses it. Screaming, she stands up in the front of the plane. "I'm too young to die!" she wails. Then she yells, "Well, if I'm going to die, I want my last minutes on Earth to be memorable! I've had plenty of sex in my life, but no one has ever made me really feel like a woman! Well, I've had it! Is there ANYONE on this plane who can make me feel like a REAL WOMAN?"
    For a moment there is silence. Everyone has forgotten their own peril, and they stare, riveted, at the desperate woman in the front of the plane. Then, a man stands up in the rear of the plane.
    "I can make you feel like a woman," he said. The man was built, with long, flowing black hair and jet-black eyes. He starts to walk slowly up the aisle, unbuttoning his shirt one button at a time. No one moves. The woman is breathing heavier with every step the stranger takes as he approaches her. He removes his shirt. Muscles ripple across his chest as he reaches her, and extends the arm holding his shirt to the trembling woman, and whispers:
    "Iron this".
    A real war of the jokes here

    tonometry dignify trudgen

    IF this was a trick question it would be placed in the brainteaser section. IF this were serious it would be in the philosophy and if it's for fun then it make sense that it's in the lounge and so it is. This question assumes the man is wrong and is asking and want to know if he's still? I don't know the answer because it's tooooooooo deeeepp. But I asked the AI and it say the man is not wrong.... So I'm sticking with the AI!

    obviously men can't win since all the woman say he's wrong and the men say he isn't and there are more woman than men, (even tablet is taking womens side!) Ah, I give up I'm too young to understand the complexities of the womans mind.

    Well first of all ( on the inital question) there is a woman there to hear him speak if he is in a forest. Mother nature. Now will it be right? I have answerd this as to what I feel is correct already. It dependes if it is the answer that is chosen to be excepted.:D

    Society has decided what is right and what is wrong...therefore, in a wooden area where industrialization has no effect...I believe he is neither wrong nor right and he can start his own civilization with the wooden creatures creating his own rules.:pbjtime: But, if he breaks one of his own rules...well then..he is wrong.... right?

    'Men are always wrong.'

    Statistically, this is unlikely to be true, since men will be right some of the time by accident, at least. So logically, the woman posting is probably wrong. One might also be forgiven for concluding that this is designed as an insult to men, and as a claim to omniscience.

    Perhaps this is just an example of a woman expressing her opinion, and couching it in absolute terms instead of saying 'I always disagree with men about what is right and wrong.'

    The integration of emotional reaction and perceived objective truth is a feature of the female mind; conversely, the separation of emotion and thought is a feature of the male mind. These differences serve the sexes well in their respective evolved hunter/gatherer roles as carer/homebuilder and hunter/protector. They only cause conflict when roles become more fluid and confused (as they undoubtedly are in modern society).

    Jokes are fine, but insofar as they show an underlying resentment, women who put down men in this way, and men who make equally scathing generalistic criticisms of women are likely to end up living alone. Perhaps it is time we all exhibited some humility, and grew up!
