Its because men work harder. Women spend all their time sitting round watching soaps.

Ever been into a woman's bathroom in the mall? They have sofas and crap in there. They take rests just for having to poop! Lazy buggers!

All that time spent sitting to pee instead of labouring on your feet to pee has to add up too!


/totally serious and not trolling in the least here.

Being more serious...

Short people live longer than tall people. Less stress on heart.
Height is more significant than sex for age expectation.

Women are shorter than men on average.

Also in many countrieswomen less likely to smoke./partake other harmful substances.


I think height/tobacco would probably even the gap quite a lot to the point of very little difference between men/women life expectancies.

*gets ready to duck and run* it's a pressure valve.  They yell at us about toilet seats, going to golf instead of taking her somewhere nice or just sit and cuddle, saying the wrong thing at the right time or wrong time, saying the right thing at the wrong time, eating this when we should eat that..

no wonder they live longer

I'd find this easier to believe if they could point to a discrepancy in men were dying of infections or anything else that had anything to do with the immune system, and not heart disease, cancer, accidents, or any of the other leading causes of death.  Also, women are about ten times as likely to be affected by autoimmune diseases as men, so while there clearly are differences in how the immune system acts, maybe that's not such an advantage.

But that would mean that the longest living humans would be...midgets.
I don't think that's the case.

They prefer to be called Dwarves. And according to this, they usually live to be about 200-250.

Okinawa
Longest lived people, average height overall is something like  5'2"
The average height of the Okinawan men over 87?  4'9"

It's because to impress men, all women have to do is flash their boobies.  But to impress women, men think they have to turn to their friend and say "hold my beer and make sure that hot chick is watching what I do next..."

/I'm told that having a lot of money works better
//Never had a lot of money
///Hold my beer...

Men tend to take more risks, eat less produce, and bottle more emotions up.

Ever wonder why women don't f*rt?  Because they don't shut their mouth long enough to build up the necessary pressure.
