Whores are expensive.

Are they expecting a shortfall of women in the near future? Looks like my ovarian investments are finally going to pay off.

What, did you have them trimmed in gold with spinners? Get an upgraded set from an overly fertile ovide? Bejazzling? Curious minds, etc.

/proof: the (R) war on women --> endless chickenfarking.

Well, not really. Although I nurture them with chaste thoughts and plenty of communion wafers so that once a month they release a magical stork egg that grows into a human being once I'm married.

I've had mine lowered and an expensive sound system installed.

Research study performed at Michigan Tech?

Of course in areas where women are scarce, so are engagement rings.

The trend will continue until exorbitant costs become an entrance barrier to the market, at which point fleshlight orders and WoW account usage will skyrocket.

anyone who thinks a woman is going to 'save them' is in for a huge disappointment.

sounds like someone misses their mommy.

The men were happy to pay an extra $278 for an engagement ring compared to participants who were not told of the lack of ladies.


WTF? I paid less than that TOTAL for my wife's engagement ring. How much farking cash do guys blow on these things??? What the hell is the matter with people?

what is the matter with american men is that they make the grave mistake of thinking that spending money on their woman is going to make her love them even more.

if you have to spend money on a chic in order for her to want to be with you, you are in deep doo doo.

if she wants you, she'll have you money or no money.

It's the power of advertising. Hell, engagement rings aren't as traditional as we think.

This? The scarcity thing is why I have always fantasized about moving to Alaska and having my pick of lonely, horny, single men....to feed me peeled grapes and put up shelves.

(But, I love Colorado too much to move just for some action.)

This is why my girlfriend is great. In some ways we try to out-cheap each other when we go shopping. How else do you save up money for big future purchases (wedding/house/etc)?
