  • What is "the wrong kind of attention"? Are we promoting another baseless stereotype? Discuss.?

    You see the phrase "the wrong kind of attention" come up regarding women dressing in a provocative way. Accompanying this phrase is the 'observation' that women who dress in such a way are 'easy' or 'slutty', and that they somehow deserve any negative consequences they receive.

    However, we are now in the 21st century, and supposedly in an enlightened age. Shouldn't we be promoting the idea, as enlightened human beings, that no matter how a woman dresses that the choices about what she agrees or refuses to do are ultimately hers? Or are we still stuck with stereotypes that just women by how they dress and not the measure of their true character?

  • Three friends...?

    Three men, best of friends, have done everything together. The went to preschool together, attended the same school and university, they marry in a triple ceremony, and go to the same place for their honeymoon.

    The first friend watches his new bride undress, and is shocked - "Geez you're skinny!! How did you hide that from me while we were dating??" He is promptly kicked out of his room by a furious wife.

    The second friend is watching his new wife and is stunned when she disrobes - "What the... ? How did you hide all that FAT when we were dating??" He too is kicked out by an angry bride.

    The first two friends are out on the balcony having a smoke when the third friend arrives. They offer him a cigarette with a knowing smile.

    "Let's guess - she took her clothes off, and you put your foot in it?"

    "No," says the third man shaking his head, "But I could have..."

  • Mailman Retirement?

    A mailman has worked the same route for 10 years. Upon retirement his boss tells him what a great job he's done, gives him a bonus and sends him on his way. The mailman goes to the first house - the family congratulates him and gives him 20 dollars. At the next house, he is again congratulated and is given another 20 dollars. When the mailman arrives at the third house a beautiful blonde opens the door wearing almost nothing and beckons the mailman in. She then takes the mailman upstairs and has sex with him. After the mind blowing sex they go downstairs and the blonde makes the mailman a grand breakfast. She puts the food in front of him and places a single dollar next to his coffee cup. Not wanting to be rude, he eats the meal.

    Finally, curiosity getting the better of him, he asks the blonde what the dollar was for. She explains that upon recieving the notice of his retirement, she asked her husband what they could give him. He said "Screw him, leave a dollar." The meal was her idea.

  • The Friendly Skies?

    A mother and her son were flying Qantas from Perth to Sydney.

    The son, who had been looking out the window, turned to his mother and said,"Why don't big planes have baby planes?"

    The mother, who couldn't think of an answer, told her son to ask the flight attendant.

    So, the little boy asked the flight attendant, "If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes?"

    The flight attendant asked, "Did your mother tell you to ask me that?"

    The boy replied "yes".

    With a clever grin, the flight attendant said, "Tell your mother it's because Qantas always pulls out on time."

  • Why it is better not to stammer...?

    A man goes in for an interview for a job as a TV news broadcaster. The interview goes well but the trouble was he kept winking and stammering.

    The interviewer said, "You have a lot of the qualities we're looking for, but the fact that you keep winking and stammering disqualifies you."

    "Oh, that's no problem," said the man. "If I take a couple of aspirin I stop winking and stammering for an hour."

    The man reached into his pocket. He pulls out loads of condoms of every variety - ribbed, flavored, colored and everything - before finding the packet of aspirin. He took the aspirin and soon talked perfectly and stopped winking.

    The interviewer said, "That's amazing, but I don't think we could employ someone who'd be womanizing all over the country."

    "Excuse me!" exclaimed the man, "I'm a happily married man!!"

    "Well how do you explain all the condoms, then?" asked the interviewer.

    The man replied, "Have you ever gone into a pharmacy, stammering and winking, and asked for aspirin?"

    The punchline for the joke is:

    A feminist wants testicles, while a liberated woman keeps them as trophies...

  • Does it annoy/disappoint you when someone claims they are religious, but doesn't know the basic details?

    Example: A question about 'why do we fall in love?', and someone answers 'because Jesus made it that way'.

    Now, I may not be up to scratch on my theology. However, doesn't the basic tenet of Christianity state that Jesus of Nazareth was the son of God - meaning that God created 'love' and not Jesus.

    A quick and dirty example, but you get my meaning.

    (And can I at least get some reasonable answers, instead of people behaving like I ran over your puppy...)

  • Does you lose interest in computer/video games titles if you can't find cheat codes?

    At one time or another, someone has asked for cheat codes for games I have played. However, does having the cheat codes take the fun and challenge out of the games? Do they add to the gaming experience, or diminish the magic the game might have held for you?

  • Does television assume the viewers are idiots when promoting upcoming programs?

    I get the impression that programmers think we're not very bright. While the television is referred to as the "idiot box", surely the viewing public should be given more credit when presented with teasers for upcoming programming. Instead, we are presented with clips from future episodes that are out of order, out of context, and a misrepresentation of what the program is really about.

    Furthermore, tacking two episodes together over sequential timeslots doesn't make it a "Special Movie Length" episode - especially when one is a new episode, and the next is a re-run episode.

    Understanding the constant battle for television ratings, surely there are better ways to promote programs than treating the viewers like idiots.
