Yes, you read the headline correctly. In the latest example of identity politics taken to its absurd end, three Australian college professors believe that "Playful urination practices – from seeing how high you can pee to games such as Peeball (where men compete using their urine to destroy a ball placed in a urinal) – may give boys an advantage over girls when it comes to physics." The three professors didn´t publish their thoughts on a satirical website like The Onion. Instead, they published on Tes, a website that provides "Educational materials, jobs, news, and courses from the world´s best community
All ideas that try to build models of the universe (That is, understanding physics) begin with incredible imaginary adventures into the unknown. No one, not even Newton, Einstein or Siskin, knew where their thought play was going to take them when they started out trying to understand various parts of Everything. But, trying to make a connection into realms of human learning and understanding based parabolic trajectories of urine as directed by little boys, is taking flights of fancy way beyond the realm of grasping at reality. Placing the politically convenient forced-thought experiment into the cells of feminazi placations explaining why girls can´t figure out gravity waves and time dilation because they have to urinate sitting down and thus "can´t watch" the fluid dynamis of it all is in itself a detrimental exercise in expanding human knowledge. It takes the light out of enlightenment!
Can you imagine that the world of science will tolerate this line of lame "scientific" BS rather than allow study into UFO,s crop circles, mental telepathy and/or the Loch Ness creature? What total idiots some so-called "scientists" are!
Men should be celebrated for having lifted the seat. They could have just as easily peed all over the seat and it was only out of consideration for the next user that they ever bothered to lift the seat.
Why don´t women lift the seat as a courtesy when they are finished ?
Maybe this IS true. But whatever the reason it is fact (not sexist thought) that men and women from childhood have different strengths and these real biologic differences advantage boys towards science and math.
I for one can see the celebration in ´peeing´ skills. Peeing the longest distance or up a wall or making bubbles from the pressure that your pee can deliver into water. There will come a time when the male, in older age, will just pee down his own leg when he doesn´t even want to pee. Celebrate while it lasts is what I always say and don´t try to analogize it.
Balls and other throwing objects are amply available to girls. It´s just that they prefer dolls. Boys use dolls as swords and aerial bombs even when they are still in diapers and have never created a parabolic stream.
BTW, Why are girls incapable of making the explosion sound? Are they uvula disabled?
Maybe we can let little girls practice all this with squirt guns starting at a young age. Oops! There´s that word again. "Guns". Guess that´ll be a no no. Sorry girls. Of course, as a young girl I played with both squirt and cap guns. I think more detrimental to women of my age to us studying the sciences in college were the school counselors who told us women didn´t do that or have careers in those areas. I don´t think that happens any more. I can´t buy the "boys standing up to pee gives them an advantage in physics" theory. To me, that´s like saying "girls sitting down to pee gives them an advantage in exercise" theory.
#12. Put the seat back where you found it! And girls never miss the potty. No one has to clean urine off the toilet or floor because of missing the toilet after a women. Such an accomplishment to be able to hit a target with one urine. You guys must be so proud.
It appears that David Low is a little too interested in young boys´ guns. The scourge of mother was our standing back as far as we could and seeing if we could make it to the target and keep it there, steadily walking toward it as we ran out of ammo. We would learn our lesson ... until the next time. I also learned early on that there was a connection between my gun and brain. The brain turned off when the gun was employed. So true.
Good thing these professors didn´t come out with their report until after Obama left office. If the Mooch had gotten wind of it she would have (in the name of "fairness, of course) pressed for "sit-down education" for boys in publik skools.
I always put the seat up when I finish. Not just for courtesy, but I learned the hard way to put it back up because my golden retriever drinks out of the toilet bowl. By the way, when my husband and I go to our barn porch to enjoy our pond and the deer and wild turkeys, he definitely has the advantage when one has to go behind the barn! Guys have the advantage when nature calls outdoors!
In the week since bombshell allegations against the film mogul Harvey Weinstein became public, the Breitbart website has been all over the scandal as an opportunity to showcase liberal hypocrisy in Hollywood. One thing missing from its coverage, though, is the role that its executive chairman Steve Bannon once played for Weinstein. In fact, their business relationship continues to have relevance not only because it shows how Bannon once profited off of Weinstein´s endeavors, but also because it´s the subject of an ongoing fraud lawsuit that will now have to be fought by a divided Weinstein clan. Twelve years ago, long
Guy wrote earlier about how NBC´s shameful conduct regarding the allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Multiple reports from inside NBC claim that the network went out of their way to kill or impede stories about Weinstein´s despicable conduct. Now, former Olympic gymnast Dominique Moceanu is making similar claims about the network, saying that when her memoir, Off Balance was published in 2012, she was told that NBC attempted to "bury" the stories she wrote about in her book. Moceanu claimed that she faced emotional and physical abuse from her coaches, Bela and Marta Karolyi. Moceanu was the youngest member
Harvey Weinstein’s alleged assault and harassment of the countless women who’ve now spoken out against him—not to mention the many others likely still preparing to come forward—was evil in a very specific, individual way. As co-founder of Miramax and The Weinstein Company, his apparent intimidation, coercion, and rape of actresses and employees were heinous offenses, and should be judged—by which I mean condemned—in their own right. He was, by all media accounts, a monster who used his power and influence to terrorize, all in order to satisfy his perverse sexual desires. His fall from grace is justly deserved. Nonetheless, his actions
Amid an exodus of business partners, board members and creative talent, leaders of the embattled Weinstein Co. are divided over the next step for the company that has been shaken to the core by explosive allegations of sexual assault and harassment at the hands of its co-founder and former co-chairman Harvey Weinstein. Industry observers said some form of bankruptcy reorganization is becoming increasingly likely as the company’s prospects deteriorate. TWC co-chairman Bob Weinstein and COO David Glasser are said to be advocating a batten-down-the-hatches strategy while the law firm hired to investigate the growing number of claims about Harvey Weinstein’s
If you really want to know how bad the Democratic bench is in terms of candidates and role models, just look at this Cosmopolitan piece about Wendy Davis and what she did after her devastating and catastrophic loss to Republican Greg Abbott—sorry, Gov. Abbott. She went to Costa Rica, drank margaritas with her family, but she said the loss hurt. At the same time, she goes on about how 2014 was not really an indicator concerning whether Texas was trending blue, and she lamented on how her filibuster of a late-term abortion bill allowed Republicans to label her “abortion Barbie.”
Who’s next? Now that Harvey Weinstein’s reign of sexual terror is over, the answer is, hopefully, several of Hollywood’s most durable, liberal, ostensibly politically correct leading men. Until two days ago, Ben Affleck was mainly perceived as his own worst enemy. Then he issued a statement condemning Weinstein’s behavior. “I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades,” Affleck wrote in part. “This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to
Beneath Yellowstone National Park lies a supervolcano, a behemoth far more powerful than your average volcano. It has the ability to expel more than 1,000 cubic kilometers of rock and ash at once — 2,500 times more material than erupted from Mount St. Helens in 1980, which killed 57 people. That could blanket most of the United States in a thick layer of ash and even plunge the Earth into a volcanic winter. Yellowstone’s last supereruption occurred 631,000 years ago. And it’s not the planet’s only buried supervolcano. Scientists suspect that a supereruption scars the planet every 100,000 years, causing many
Hollywood is in chaos, and all because of one man: Harvey Weinstein. Multiple allegations of rape, sexual harassment and trading sex for movie roles have forced one of the most powerful men in show business out of his company and begging for help and forgiveness. But the ripples extending from the wake of Weinstein’s dramatic fall extend much further than his business and personal relationships and so far show no signs of abating. From the women he allegedly abused, to the associates who allegedly knew about his behavior all along but stayed silent, to the A-list actors and actresses who depend on him
There are good things to be said for "One Nation After Trump," a survival guide to our current dilemma by Thomas Mann, Norman Ornstein, and E.J. Dionne. Among them is the authors´ acknowledgement that our recent election was less a spasm of rage than a reaction to the severe and uneven depression that settled in on some parts of the country in the past 30 years, to which politicians of both major parties had paid no attention at all. Less promising, however, is their belief that Democrats can become the core of a fusionist movement -- unlikely in a party moving
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to President Trump´s travel ban on majority-Muslim countries Tuesday because it has been replaced by a new version, sending the controversy back to the starting block. The ruling is a victory for the Trump administration, which had asked the court to drop the case after Trump signed a proclamation Sept. 24 that replaced the temporary travel ban on six nations with a new, indefinite ban affecting eight countries. That action made the court challenge moot, the justices ruled. "We express no view on the merits," the justices said in a one-page order. The decision
Email correspondence revealed Monday about a July 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian attorney at Trump Tower in New York City contradict previous reports. The messages suggest that the meeting was not set up to pass on damaging information about Hillary Clinton on behalf of the Russian government. Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya believed she was meeting President Donald Trump’s oldest son to discuss the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 sanction law aimed at top Russian officials, and did not have information on behalf of the Kremlin to pass on to the Trump campaign, according to the emails. In an email chain
As allegations of rape, abuse, and other forms of sexual misconduct against him mount, Harvey Weinstein´s wife of a decade has announced she´s leaving him. Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman told People magazine in a statement on Tuesday that she was separating from Weinstein with whom she shares two young children. "My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions," the statement read. "I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time." Chapman has not responded to CNN requests
The National Football League announced on Friday that it wants to use its platform to raise awareness for social justice issues and that it does not plan to mandate that players stand for the U.S. national anthem. Commissioner Roger Goodell and the head of the NFL Players Association are expected to meet with team owners this next week in New York, where they will discuss possible solutions on how to end the national anthem protests, Reuters reported. “(Goodell) has a plan that he is going to present to owners about how to use our platform to both raise awareness and
President Trump will halt subsidy payments to insurers who sell coverage under Obamacare — a move that would deal a critical blow to the program, the White House confirmed Thursday night. “Based on guidance from the Department of Justice, the Department of Health and Human Services has concluded that there is no appropriation for cost-sharing reduction payments to insurance companies under Obamacare,” the White House said in a statement. Trump has decided to end the payments — which cost about $7 billion this year — after the GOP failed numerous efforts to repeal Obamacare on Capitol Hill. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi
A National Football League (NFL) player says he would rather lose his job than be forced to stand during the national anthem. “No, I will be done playing football,” Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews tweeted Thursday when asked about the issue, according to ESPN. ESPN reported that WSMV producer Matt Parker asked Matthews whether he would stay in the locker room for the song if the NFL created a rule mandating they stand or face punishment. Matthews tweeted out a response before quickly deleting it and hitting the field for the Titans’ Thursday afternoon practice. The player – who is the team’s leading receiver –
Hillary Clinton today falsely called Donald Trump an ´admitted sex assaulter´ and compared him to disgraced alleged sex abuser Harvey Weinstein. The failed Democratic presidential candidate, who received thousands in campaign funding from Weinstein, told the BBC´s Andrew Marr ´we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office.´ (Snip) ´After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office. ´There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic.´ And asked about allegations of sexual misconduct levelled at her husband
Porn King Larry Flynt and Hustler Magazine is offering $10 million for information leading to the impeachment of Donald J. Trump as president. Flynt will advertise the offer this weekend in the Washington Post.

This week he upped his offer to $10 million for information that will impeach Trump. (Photo/Tweet) Class act. (Photo/Tweet)
Despite Chicago’s alarming, if select, murder statistics and routine singling out by President Donald Trump for gun violence, this lakeside metropolis was just ranked one of the safest cities in the world. The Economist Intelligence Unit, a London-based research firm affiliated with the Economist magazine, named Chicago to its 2017 Safe Cities Index, issued Thursday — one of only three US cities to crack the top 20 — largely based on advances in digital security. The annual ranking assesses 60 global cities using four factors: personal safety, health security, digital security and the safety of infrastructure. Chicago, at 19th-safest, narrowly trailed the other
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in talks with Columbia University to take on a formal role at the school. Multiple sources on Thursday told the New York Daily News that Clinton, a two-time failed presidential candidate, is also talking with Columbia about housing her archives at the Ivy League institution, the New York Daily News reported. The former law professor may take on the role of "University Professor," which would allow Clinton to lecture in multiple schools and departments without the requirement of a strict course load, a source told the Daily News. With this vague title, Clinton could potentially
No short-term political victory is worth the long-term cultural degradation the president is guaranteeing the GOP. The vast majority of commentary about Donald Trump’s tweets centers on Trump: What do they say about his state of mind? Do they signal a change in American policy? Will he follow through on his threats? Is he a master media manipulator or just angry? Is he playing nine-dimensional chess or is he simply undisciplined and impulsive? I want to focus on another question entirely: What are Trump’s tweets doing to the political character of his Republican supporters? I focus on his tweets because
Former President Barack Obama’s foundation mission is “to inspire and empower people to change their world.” So who better to fire up his audience for democratic change than a man whose family has headed the British state by divine right for the better part of 1,000 years? Royal heartthrob Prince Harry — fifth in line to the British throne, behind his niece, nephew, brother and father — is coming to Chicago on Oct. 31 to “empower participants with tools to create positive change in their communities,” according to the Obama Foundation, which will host Harry at its inaugural summit. While it’s true that
What the president is doing, it´s violent. His actions are violent. He does violence to what we want to do in health care. He does violence to the national debt by what he is adding to it. He does violence to the world, in terms of nuclear proliferation and the environment and our standing in the world, with his frivolity. What we want him to do is to calm down, get used to the job he has, know that his words weigh a ton, and that he really should know what he´s talking about when he says something.
A successful Dallas businessman pledging to spend in the seven figures out of his own bank account to run for governor in 2018 should be a great get for Texas Democrats. Yet the party doesn´t seem to be getting behind Jeffrey Payne, whose business happens to be a gay bar. Payne, owner of gay leather bar The Dallas Eagle and winner of both the international and Texas Mr. Leather competitions in 2009, officially launched his campaign this week saying, "There´s no reason to think that someone who is gay can´t do a job, and here it´s being governor and representing
The Fox News headline sums up the issue at hand: "No Obama documents in Obama library? Historians puzzled by Chicago center plans." The article continues, "The Obama Foundation is taking an unconventional approach to the presidential center and library being planned in Chicago. It´s opting to host a digital archive of President Barack Obama´s records, but not keep his hard-copy manuscripts and letters and other documents onsite." The Chicago Tribune broke the story that, to this point, has attracted no major media attention. Its headline raises much the same question Fox News did: "Without archives on site, how will Obama Center benefit
