Women's Tolerance Level

March 31st, 2009
By



So the other night, I was watching wifey as she plucked some hairs out of her face (eyebrows) and I cringed at the thought of doing that to myself.

We often tease women that they are so emotional and that they cry senselessly over romantic movies, or that they would get the biggest bruise over the smallest, lightest bump into the coffee table, but we don't give them enough credit for their high tolerance in pain.

They shave, pluck, and pull every hair out known to (wo)man. They unload a 5-10 pound "bag of rice" from "their loins" (props leerz) when giving birth. Heck, they even have to deal with a monthly "friend" who comes with (I'm told) cramps, headaches, moodiness and the like.

What do we men have to do? Put on deodorant periodically and perhaps not fart in front of company from time to time. Not a bad deal if you ask me.

I honestly don't think I can handle being a woman. The heck with romantic movies, plucking a single hair out of my face or pushing "rice" through my body would make ME cry. Fo sho.

So here's to you, you tough, tolerant women. Mad props. ;)

Talk to me!
* Fellas, do you groom your eyebrows? Why? :P
* Ladies, without getting too graphic/personal, what's the most painful hair to pluck?
* What do you think the toughest thing we men have to do is?
* Aren't nose hairs the worst to pluck!?!? That's death!
* Did I miss anything?

Arrrgggghhh! The start of another loooong work week. Let's start the week off on the right foot shall we? Here's a little "laugher" - forwarded to me recently - to help put a smile on that face. Enjoy!

Women's Ass Size Study

There is a new study out about women and how they feel about their asses. Here are the results:

* 25% of women think their ass is too fat...
* 10% of women think their ass is too skinny...

The other 65% say that they don't care; they love him, he's a good man, and they would have married him anyway.

Get it? :P

Talk to me!
* Soooo ladies.... how do you feel about your ass? Do you have one? Do you wish you could have someone else's? Fat? Skinny? :P
* Fellas, apologies. Help me get em back by posting a good, manly joke below. *grunt*

Have a good week y'all!

Either Takeshi (kun) had really quick eyes last week, or he already knew the answer to our WIH contest: Little Seoul Korean Restaurant. Please help me congratulate Takeshi-kun. Omedetou!

Funny side note: I recently drove by Little Seoul on the way to Wal-Mart, only to find out that the sign doesn't even look like that anymore. Oh well. At least you gotum! :P

Wot! Like Beef!?

Nah, I like chicken! :P

Ehn-nee-waaaay...

In a recent study, it was discovered that eating red meat increases your chances of dying early. Their study of "red meats" included succulent steaks, bodacious burgers, and precious pork chops. Geez, why don't you just take all the fun out of BBQs, picnics and sports bars already? Next they'll be saying beer causes blindness or somethin'.

So here's the article. Read um and I'll meet ya at the bottom with tears in our eyes...

Red meat linked to risk of earlier death

Eating red meat increases the chances of dying prematurely, according to a large federal study offering powerful new evidence that a diet that regularly includes steaks, burgers and pork chops is hazardous to your health.

The study of more than 500,000 middle-age and elderly Americans found that those who consumed the equivalent of about a small hamburger every day were more than 30 percent more likely to die in the following 10 years, mostly from heart disease and cancer. Processed meats also increased the risk.

The new study is the first large examination of the relationship between eating meat and overall mortality.

In contrast, routine consumption of fish, chicken, turkey and other poultry decreased the risk of death slightly, the study found.

Although pork often is promoted as "white meat," it is believed to increase the risk for cancer because of its iron content, said Rashmi Sinha of the National Cancer Institute, who led the study published today in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

"This would be the Rolls-Royce of studies on this topic," said Barry Popkin, a professor of global nutrition at the University of North Carolina, who wrote an accompanying editorial.

There are many explanations for how red meat might be unhealthy: Cooking red meat generates cancer-causing compounds; red meat is also high in saturated fat, which has been associated with breast and colorectal cancer; and meat is also high in iron, which also is believed to promote cancer. People who eat red meat are more likely to have high blood pressure and cholesterol, which increases the risk of heart disease. Processed meats contain substances known as nitrosamines, which have been linked to cancer.

The American Meat Institute, a trade group, dismissed the findings, saying they were based on unreliable self-reporting by study participants.

After accounting for other variables such as smoking and physical activity, the researchers found that men who consumed the most red meat -- about a quarter-pound a day -- were 31 percent more likely to die for any reason, 22 percent more likely to die of cancer and 27 percent more likely to die of heart disease than those who ate the least meat. Women who ate the most red meat were 36 percent more likely to die for any reason, 20 percent more likely to die from cancer and 50 percent more likely to die from heart disease.

FDA TOLD TO GIVE TEENS ACCESS TO PLAN B PILL
The Food and Drug Administration let politics cloud its judgment when it denied teenage girls over-the-counter access to the Plan B morning-after pill, a federal judge said Monday as he ordered the FDA to let 17-year-olds obtain the medication. U.S. District Judge Edward Korman blasted the FDA's handling of the issue during the Bush administration, saying it had "repeatedly and unreasonably" delayed issuing a ruling for suspect reasons.

The ruling came in a lawsuit brought by individuals and organizations advocating for wider distribution and access to emergency contraceptives. The FDA, which said it was still reviewing the decision, has 30 days to comply with the order.

Sad no? Actually, to be quite honest, I'm not a heavy duty red meat eater. Don't get me wrong. I looooove me some steaks/burgers/pork, but I don't necessarily eat it on the regular. Reading this article makes me want to sell out and turn veggie though. You?

Talk to me!
* Are you a meatatarian? How often do you grind the red stuff?
* What's your favorite? Beef? Burgers? Pork? Other?
* Got any secret new bbq steak recipes for the WWE `Ohana?
* What about you chicken lovahs out dea? Holla!
* Are you a vegetarian? Any one particular reason why you chose to do so?
* Allergic to shellfish? This seems to be common in my personal experience.
* Hate foods with fishy tastes?
* What food can't you stand?

P.S. Congrats to Team Japan for beating Team Korea 5-3 in extra innings in an exciting World Baseball Classic Championship game! Sorry for yelling so loud neighbors. ;) Apologies also to the neighbors' of my 'rents. I'm sure they were equally loud. :P

Have a happy Tuesday y'all!
