There probably should be a minimum IQ for doing a lot of things -- but I don't think that many of us are ready for that type of government intrusion into our lives.
It is a thought, however. And yes, I do think that IDing for energy drinks is a topic which should be discussed with proposals evaluated. I'm not in favor of regulation where not needed but I do feel that sometimes manufacturers and marketers come up with products faster than the public -- especially minors -- are able to understand them and successfully incorporate them into their lifestyles.View Thread
It's definitely true that women multitask better than men. I believe the hard-wiring of men's focusing on single tasks while women focus on a number of them simultaneously goes back to very early society. Men needed to be focused on the hunt to stay alive and bring home the needed meat. Women needed to focus on two or more things at the same time in order to do any household task while also keeping an eye on one or more children.
But hold the phone here -- an inherent inability to multi-task does not mean than men cannot or do not do as much as women can. It just needs to be recognized that we guys will do things differently, often to the uncomprehending consternation of women. One must calmy point out that it's the results which matter, not necessarily the method. We men and women need to keep on acknowledging our differences and use that understanding to come to better and more amicable outcomes. And since we guys are poor at multi-tasking it may take us longer to do the same thing. Therefore it should be accomplishment which matches, not necessarily the amount of time expended to get housework (or anything else) done.View Thread
There are few if any non-religious or cultural reasons why a newborn boy should be routinely circumcised. Routine circumcision appears to be basically a cosmetic trend or fashion. Incidence of disease or later problems caused by having a foreskin is minimal.
As an individual I am proud to be uncircumcised and have a "penis classic" -- have you ever seen a statue where the guy was circumcised? Of course not!View Thread
