    No. That's just his wording. If you could read german, I could post you a bunch of links, even with nice graphs. Like this: http://www.uni-heidelberg.de/presse/ruca/ruca1_2000/klein.html

    We've all been through that. And you'll like this: it will never really end.

    Still waiting for your comment, Kruno. Was that credible enough? Your opinion?

    I haven't a clue.
    It seemed like they were talking about mating with animals which is different from the original one I read which spoke about females looking for a male with the same qualities.

    There is some very disturbing stuff in there if true.

    Two of the links I posted deal only with humans. But the patterns are still more or less the same as with animals when you look under the surface - the instincts still rule over mind unfortunately.

    I think there is many parts of truth in there and it is funny as hell, but not all encompassing or fully accurate.

    His definition of a cuddle bitch for example, while it may suck it does often lead farther unless the dude is inept...

    But he also leaves out a fundamental point, women for whatever reason are attracted to the biker/outlaw not b/c of power, or money, but rather the false sense of danger. Many women seem to get a thrill out of putting themselves in shitty situations...

    It's more about the male being "strong" and having the "courage" to deal with dangerous/shitty sitations and females being attracted to those (mostly false) attributes.

    just to give my 2 lipe ...

    it is oversimplified (but funny for sure), there are points that are true, and the theory could be applicable to some people, but in general we humans are much more complicated than that.

    While you could say that women go for power (either consciously or not), there you get into semantics, and "what is power" discussion... for some its money, for some it's "alpha - male", for some it's "intellectual", blah blah blah... and than the whole "specific" part goes to the air... as for the ladder... well almost anything in life can be metaphorically described as a ladder. As long as you can value them... you can put ATI and Nvidia on a ladder too if you want. Card X has more bandwith therefore it is higher up on the ladder :doh: ... Nevertheless a funny read, and the most "to the point" part I'd say it was that men don't have separate scales, as "two dimensions" we could get it on with anyone (almost :D ) but women do tend to create a separate dimension (or few) in their version of the reality, and defining one in courtship season as - "friend" + the difficulties or some facts about being in that dimension of her perception... and crossing from one category to another is a tricky business :D ... but women tend to have different categories for anything, doesn't have to be just sex, but just views on certain aspect of life, how things are "meant to be done" etc... from my point of view (could generalize and say - men) this is totally irrational, but I think it has to do with emotion - reason relationship in women, which is some kind of instinct that has no proper "rational explanation" but they find it useful throught thier life (as it turns out to be true quite often) but than on the downside they do abuse this construct quite a few times too as they go along.

    Why do Japanese girls go for the guy with the biggest penis?
    I read this on the Internet. Probably on a porn site.

    I must add that I do have two ladders as well, based on some bad experiences I had in the past. But I won't go any deeper into that now.
