    No I'm afraid ''bubble and squeak'' refers to the noises in the pan when you are frying it..absolutely nothing to do with ''farting''..

    More stupid? No. Different kind of stupid? Yes.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    It's not exactly stupidity. Men are simply naturally more inclined toward physical risk. It's part of our natural hunting instinct. Some might call it stupid but you have to be that way if you're going to confront a moose with nothing more than a sharp stick.

    And objective facts from the journal have found that a lot more men die in stupid stunts than women do. Maybe it is stupidity that makes men more likely to die doing a stupid stunt or maybe it is something different.

    Stupidity over ones safety is totally separate from the intelligence issue. A man/woman can be quite intelligent and still totally stupid when it comes to their own safety in stupid stunts.
    Males show off for females throughout the animal kingdom.

    That's probably the root of risky behavior.

    But that isn't stupidity. That isn't lack of intelligence. That's irresponsibility. That's recklessness. These are different qualities.

    Yes, but blowing yourself up if your own letterbomb comes back due to insufficient stamps is just stupid.

    And it is not just for females. Men among themselves do insane stuff too.

    Well, I call that more stupid than women when it comes to their own safety/health. Because stupid stunts have a tendency to kill or injure a lot of people and most of those performing those stupid stunts are men.

    Look at Ridiculousness and the people that were nominated for the Darwin Award, a large percentage is men, that is just a fact of life.

    But the bomb was sent originally to win the virgins, right? So maybe it was subconscious suicide.

    And posturing is directed at both sexes. Just for different ends.
