Do women have better memories than men?
« on: 11/05/2016 22:50:01 »
Mpho asked the Naked Scientists:
   Is it a fact that females have a better memory than males? I always have arguments with my wife about this because I can't remember everything that she does.
What do you think?

It's a myth based on a trick that women learn from their mothers. In any argument a woman will insist that she remembers exactly what happened, who said what, and where she put the keys, so it was your fault, you insulted her best friend, and you must have moved the keys.

You can't win because it would be ungentlemanly to point out that she was driving at the time, she has described her so-called best friend as a loathsome hysterical moron, and you can hear the keys rattling in her handbag. And even if it was true, it wouldn't affect the cricket score.

Brave man Calverd; I'm very surprised that you have escaped the wrath of the female board members with that post...

Too busy multitasking, knitting, and having babies, perhaps. Which reminds me

Teacher: "Why can't women over 50 have babies?"

Pupil: "Because they'd put them down and forget where they left them."

Full marks for observation, Smith Minor.

Haha might wanna watch how you word things Cal. Makes you sound bitter towards women with all that stereotyping.
