I wouldn't read too much into that. In today's America, that applies to 7-year-old boys, too.

I did hear something on NPR a while back about how BPA, which mimics estrogen in the body, is in a lot of plastics now. It seems it's causing girls to develop a bit earlier than usual.

For the ladies, sure. For guys you got decreased fertility, increased cancerousness, and feminizing of males. Soon we'll all be one of the girls. At least M to F trannies will get their hormone therapy started in the womb.

Boob thread, in my Fark?

The concept of "statistical" danger is kinda goofy.

Chicken's lifespan is 8 years. One of ten chickens, will die due to natural causes.

If you increase their lifespan by four years, some statistics person will say you increased the possibility that a chicken will die on your farm by 50%.

Heaven help you if you get more chickens.. If you started with ten, and bought ten more, you just doubled the chance that a chicken will die.

It IS the truth, but it's misleading. I'm taller and heavier than someone else, so it's increased the surface area of my skin.. thereby "significantly increasing my chances of getting skin cancer, despite similar exposure times to that other person."

I'm older, so I'm more likely to die prematurely because all the stats say how many people die each year, and the more years I live, the more my chance of dying increases.

Oh, and that's my favorite.. Breathing, eating, and sleeping will 100% result in your death.
Why? because if you never did those things, you couldn't be alive, therefore you can't die... so DOING those things obviously make you dead eventually. Yu will get the same results, no matter how many times you "test" it.

Who is really surprised at this point? It used to be the hormones in milk that caused this, now it may be BPA. We use lots of chemicals to get what we want.

I wouldn't read too much into that. In today's America, that applies to 7-year-old boys, too.


What's weird is that around here we have been having some neighborhood kids wanting to join us for training, kids under 11-12. I have refused to let anyone under 13 come with us since I think that's too young to lift.

I blame Jersey shore.

That is too young to lift. You'll stunt your growth. The youngest I think you can lift is 14 with out it stunting your growth.

Look at those things. Being of my persuasion, I don't really understand the male obsession with gigantic breasts. Can anyone give me their opinions on this? Is there such a thing is knockers that are just too big?

I certainly know there is such a thing as a penis that's too big. I once saw a guy with a penis so large, that it was no longer attractive to me. It looked comical, almost like a freak-show attraction.
