I mean, luckily what he's saying doesn't apply to me of course, but still: Daaaaayum.

See this is the difference between men and women. Men have the same thought, but often enough when God doesn't oblige, they just go ahead and do the job themselves.

I love Chris Rock.

4: about a quarter of spousal murders are by women, but only about 4 percent of stranger murders are.

I'm rolling my eyes like the girl in the video which Ben is too lazy to find for me.

about a quarter of spousal murders are by women:

That's because 75% of the time, the estimated net present value of alimony payments exceeds the payout on the life insurance policy.

Argh: I should not have used the 75% figure in my #7, since 75% refers to the share of spousal murders committed by husbands, not the share of marriages that women end by divorce instead of murder.

Prison incurs a pretty fierce discount rate.

Huh. I thought it was going to be this joke:

You can be married and bored, or single and lonely. Ain't no happiness nowhere.

Well, I certainly feel better about myself after hearing that.

Women do initiate a significant majority of all divorces.

I think there's something slightly but weirdly different between men and women when they get married. The social stereotype for women is that the fun is supposed to start when you get married, and for men that the fun is supposed to stop, and I think that has some effect on typical expectations of your spouse. I seem to meet more women who are *angry* at their husband, feel that he's really let them down, than men who are angry at their wives.

I mean, that's a horrible cliche, and certainly not true of all, but maybe it is encoded in there somewhere.

Fair enough!

How's this for an explanation: Masculine fronting is more susceptible to gradual decay than to abrupt collapse, leading to "how did I get here?" and anger for her rather than "wait; this is not the same wife I had last month" and bewilderment for him.

And you may find yourself in a beautiful house. And you may find yourself with a beautiful woman. And you may ask her, "Where's the bathroom at?"

How do we tell when Ogged's done hiating? Seems like he's posting/commenting more now than before his "hiatus."

Magpie, only when you no longer desire to ask such questions will you be ready to know the answers.

Plainly what is "hiating" to Ogged is "trolling" to the rest of us. Ogged is tired of pretending.

And you may ask her, "Where's the bathroom at?"

And she may say, "In this house, we do not end sentences with a preposition."

And you may then ask her, "Where's the bathroom at, asshole?"
