Life is a series of binary decisions based on inadequate information, gathered by chaotic means and interpreted largely by whether you have to wait with others or can just spin in a circle and pee. This is why everything to men looks like a bulls eye and women make lists – they have more time to contemplate their next move. Our idea of a list is: spin first and THEN pee, or START peeing and THEN spin. Yeah, and that's why more men are philosophers than women. 'Cause we're the really deep thinkers. --Joe
