Interesting new study...

Women talk three times as much as men, says study | the Daily Mail

Wow, could have fooled me.
If they included the times someone was trying to watch a show, the numbers would be double.

I think they might also talk 3x as loud.

And then there's this asshole...

There's a reason my wife has a cell phone plan with 3,000 minutes per month (and she uses just about all of them, every month)!

Wait till she is a teenager. Your phone bill will break you.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Interesting new study...

I know this fact all too well. With a wife and two daughters I hear chatter non-stop.

To make matters worse, the two little ones talk in their sleep.

Re: Interesting new study...

This house used to be real peaceful at night. Walls echoed with the sounds of gun-fire and screaming Aliens. Now that I have a female teen livin in the house, the sounds of gun fire have stopped.

Unbelievable how much she can talk on that thing. Someday it is just going to grow into her head.

Why do we need a professional study on this? Not like us men will be able to point to it and go, "look honey, scientific PROOF!"

You can reduce that a bit by distracting them with a bit of birdseed strewn on the ground...

Re: Interesting new study...

Sounds like your son was "listening" for 1700 minutes. Unfortunately it costs as much to listen as it does to talk.

I believe riding, like life, is 10% what happens and 90% how you react.
