Ridiculous comparison. Radiation will eventually give you the sweet release of death.

Sybarite: Ridiculous comparison. Radiation will eventually give you the sweet release of death.


Radiation is also predictable and obeys logic.


Women yelling is random and has no half life.

My g/F's screaming voice goes up about 500 octaves and can penetrate lead. Will make your cranium resonate and explode. Must run for your life.

Appropriate analogy.

A woman's screaming can definitely cause soft tissue damage

What, did this upset them? Did it cause them to yell? If so, analogy successful.

"It continued the metaphor by saying that the women's increasing agitation could be compared to "radioactivity", while claiming the wife herself was comparable to "radioactive material"."

Radiation is a silent killer. A woman's yelling is anything but silent.

Also, there are ways and means to shield against radiation to either limit or prevent it's deadly effects. There is no way known to man to shield against a woman's yelling.

The sound of one hand clapping: Also, there are ways and means to shield against radiation to either limit or prevent it's deadly effects. There is no way known to man to shield against a woman's yelling.


I've experimented with several possible defenses to no avail.

The laughing experiment in particular was disastrous.

Women would never get away with spewing their radiation in Afghanistan....the brave, studly Taliban would just throw acid on the biatches and be done with it.

\I winced when I typed that

I'd say a man yelling is far more terrifying. I've grown immune to women yelling to me. It just turns into an annoying buzz that I really don't pay much attention to.
 
2012-06-05 12:16:56 PM
You can't see it... you can't feel it... and you can't taste it. But it's here, right now, all around us! It's goin' through you like an X-ray! Right into your cells!
 
2012-06-05 12:17:47 PM
So if I drink enough, I can be immune to radiation?

Both probably cleave to an inverse-square law regarding intensity.

The Japanese Atomic Energy Agency devoted a page on its website to an effort to "make the hard words used in the nuclear power industry" more easy to understand, particularly for women.

You're not really helping

Like radiation, a woman's yelling does give you super powers.

I wish my wife would yell. My wife never yells. She hates conflict. So basically every time we do argue it's my fault and I'm an asshole for making her deal with something she is not emotionally equipped to handle which is conflict. In practice she has cart blanche to blissfully ignore the needs of those around her because if you call her on being rude or selfish you are the bad guy for creating conflict.

Ahh... the old "I'm too sensitive, therefore you're at fault."

Yeah, good luck with that. Every person I've ever met like that had the incredible ability to justify the most horrific behavior (and they were usually willing to committ it without second thought), and you were the bad person for calling them out on it.

Why is this discrimination against women? Are women not allowed to be portrayed as yelling or mean and instead only allowed to be shown as polite, silent mice? Would it be discrimination against men if the commercial instead showed a man abusing his spouse?
 
2012-06-05 01:05:57 PM
Well both do cause your balls to shrivel.

Both shorten your natural lifespan.

Man will eventualy triumph over radiation and bend it to his will. Not so with a yelling woman.

/ of course you also can't pimp slap radiation when it gets too lippy.

Yup. I second that. Plus, as an added bonus, if they are really good at it they can also then make you seem like the bad guy even when you give up. Because then you are 'deliberately saying nothing just to try and make them feel bad'. There really is no escape.

Sure they can. The comment, while somewhat amusing, is inappropriate. This would have been a non-story if the guy told it as a joke at the local bar. Using it in an educational setting is a no-no and he deserves punishment for that.

She can't yell. She can't be silent.

I don't see a problem with either. Provided it's appropriate for the setting (someone doing something stupid/dangerous = yelling; someone doing something which doesn't affect you but you might not like = silent). Just like everyone else, there's a modicum of sanity involved. My future BIL tries to drag me into this stuff with his wife every so often. If it's appropriate then I tell him that he's a moron and deserved what he got. If not, I ask the wife why she's gone nuclear (pun intended) over something so small. I try not to get involved with these things, but they have a tendency to go at each other when they're at my house. Otherwise, I keep my opinions to myself.

Used to have a co-worker who would become a foul-mouthed screaming lunatic if something didn't go their way. Should anyone have to put up with that? Unless you did something to truly provoke it, I'd say no, and people need to feel less offended when they called out for their poor behavior. The "I'm special" mentality we're seeing in society shouldn't be pushed to the point where it's used to justify behavior that would otherwise be considered to be unacceptable.

Seriously guys, get a dog. The world will be a better place. A dog will have a home and women won't have to deal with you.

It'd be less populated with humans, that's for sure. Might not be a bad idea, actually.

Kent Brockman: And the weather service has warned us to brace ourselves for the onslaught of Hurricane Barbara. And if you think naming a destructive storm after a woman is sexist, you obviously have never seen the gals grabbing for items at a clearance sale.

Also when exposed to high amounts of radiation there is a brief period before you die when you feel OK. This is the equivalent of when the scotch kicks in during one of the wife's scream fests.

I am so sorry to hear this. Women like her give the rest of us a bad name. It sounds like she is passive aggressive, which is very hard to deal with. There is no way for you to be right.

I am not saying that I am perfect. I realize all womens is crazy, it is just degree of crazy.

I am so glad that I am not a lesbian (nttawwt) I just do not want to deal.

I like using a flashlight, or a glowstick. That way you can also demonstrate the idea of shielding, sorta.

I had officers ask me with complete seriousness if performing gamma radiography was going to "make their ship radioactive". Almost as much fun as the many, many sailors who asked if they were going to glow now.

I have a sticker on my car that says "No, I don't glow in the dark, but thank you for asking." It's under my NUKEBOX license plate.

I did instrumentation at Grand Gulf most of this year and I had a lot of people ask "watcha doin." Takeaway: there's a reason why all the monitors got labeled "Magical Monitoring Machine."
