    You can believe what you like, it does not change the fact that numbers don't lie.

    Yes a financial obligation like medical... Oh wait.

I also went to school with more boys killed in car crashes than girls.
    Yes it is true in the case of age. The study did not take into to account teenagers, but adults. Young men are a higher risk, no doubt. But later in life our insurance rates are the same.

    yeah what a ridiculous stereotype.

    If you're going to be dangerous in a car, then behind the wheel is the sensible place to do it from.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Meh. I've owned fast sporty cars all my life with no accidents or tickets.

    Of course, having long legs and a Southern accent certainly helps in avoiding traffic citations

    And nice avatar pics.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
