WHY MEN ARE NEVER DEPRESSED:
« on: October 08, 2009, 03:02:31 PM »
WHY MEN ARE NEVER DEPRESSED:
 
Men Are Just Happier People--
Your last name stays put.
The garage is all yours.
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
Chocolate is just another snack. 
You can never be pregnant.
Car mechanics tell you the truth.
The world is your urinal.
You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.
You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
Same work, more pay.
Wrinkles add character.
People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
You know stuff about tanks and engines. A ten-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.
Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
You never have strap problems in public.
You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.
Everything on your face stays its original color.
The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades.
You only have to shave your face and neck.
You can play with toys all your life.
One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons.
You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look.
You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife.
You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.
You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives on December 24 in 25 minutes.
 
No wonder men are happier.

Men never depressed?  Tell it to the two men I know who, in the throes of LTS depression have halted their HIV medications.  Did I mention one actually died several months ago?  And the remaining one that's alive has wasting issues and is practically homeless.

Basically this is why we still have mortality issues as statistics, but it doesn't seem to get the attention.

I saw an iteration of this passed around before too.  Actually, I remember another similar joke.  It was one which contained things "men would really like to say to women".  The only one I remember, because I remember thinking it when I was growing up,  was "learn to use a fu**king toilet seat".   

Good times.

I got the opposite version of this list at one point from my very girly lesbian best friend:

35 Reasons why itís good to be a woman:

1. They donít have to pay for dinner if they want to play hide the hobbit.
2. Other people open doors for them, pull out a chair etc. (well at least the american variety do)
3. They smell nice.
4. They can have long hair and not be a hippy.
5. Make overs.
6. Shoes come in all shapes, colors and varieties just for them.
7. Skirts. Dresses and other beautiful things.
8. Can wear earings and not be questioned on their sexuality.
9. Can cry to get out themselves out of unpleasant situations.
10. Can flirt to get themselves out of unpleasant situations.
11. Can use their boobies to get good discounts on electronic products.
12. Itís ok to use make up to hide any skin imperfections.
13. The answers to their probelms are nearly always found in a tim tam packet.
14. Can wear pink shamelessly.
15. Never have to feel the pain that is being kicked in the balls.
16. Never have to rearrange their testicles while wearing tight pants.
17. Never get their sex organs caught in their zippers while drunk.
18. Can sit and read every time they go to the bathroom.
19. Don't have to run a super-sharp piece of metal over their facial epidermal layer each and every morning of their adult lives.
20. Can bludgeon someone to death with a baseball bat and then get off scot-free by claiming a "hormonal imbalance"
21. Can commit cold-blooded murder and not only get off scot-free, but end up with a book deal and an appearance on Oprah merely by mentioning "years of violent spousal abuse"
22. Aren't forced to compensate for their fathers' lack of childhood sports skills every Saturday morning throughout their formative years.
23. Can spend time alone with Catholic priests, Boy Scout leaders, and Baptist Youth ministers without feeling sexually threatened
24. Don't have to worry much about going bald
25. Have a wide variety of commercial, sweet smelling deodorants for their sex organ.
26. In a moment of anger, can call someone a "cunt" without being exiled and excommunicated from the community of humankind.
27. Know exactly what to do when a child is sick.
28. ALWAYS outlive their husbands.
29. Don't have a freaky, semi-oedipal relationship with their overbearing mothers.
30. Have an astute, innate sense of when to change underwear before it becomes a Petri Dish for bacteria development.
31. Never pull a back muscle screaming at the television during a sports event.
32. Can terminate a bladder emptying event without waiting for 'the shake'.
33. Can tell their doctors anything.
34. Can simulate a perfect, entire sex act with nothing more than ten idle minutes and a zucchini.
35. MULTIPLE ORGASMS

Huh... the writer of this list hasn't had much contact with high maintenance drama queens.

LOL, seriously.

35. MULTIPLE ORGASMS



It was supposedly some guy who told a woman not to jump a fence and pick the apples.   She does it anyways and  what happens?  They get rewarded with multiple orgasms and longer life spans.  I'll bet my left nut that Janet Reno is God...
