    Tim T, I love Steven Pinker and am looking forward to watching the full discussion when I have the time over the holiday break. I remember well the waves that Summers' comments made back in 2005. Thanks for sharing!

  • Jason

    Tim T, that Harvard debate about sex differences that you posted is worth watching. Thanks.

    One significant difference between men and women that no one mentioned...technology! In general, men seem to be much more fascinated by it than women.

    I have noticed that all music sounds better on lysergic acid diethylamide...and turned up to eleven (?) < I bet Arthur gets the reference, anyone else?

    While Mr. Dent does like to sound learned, he makes elementary grammar mistakes! You should have written: "They're also nuttier than squirrel poop!"

  • Hildi

    Stick a knife in you- you're done! Squirrel poop? What the heck? I know you like being "the bad boy" of Ockham's and I like dishing it back at you. It's all in fun and I look forward to next week. I hope everyone has a nice long weekend. BYE!

    We'll keep bringing on the "the fun" in the future! You continue bringing the funk & funky. NERD! Wait, that's a compliment because we're nerds. You just watch out, mister arghhh- mister ugly!! The remarks you have made will NOT be forgotten. We wouldn't have given you the time of day in school and we won't any longer!!! Keep looking over your shoulder, the New Orleans duo of Molly & Hildi will be watching you! (Evil laugh)

    David? You wrote that "women have more patience with maticulous work". I think Arthur is "maticulous work" and this woman has "no patience" for him. Women complicated & it's a great thing! You guys just wait till we are all there! :)

    December 21, 2011

  • Hildi

    Haha Arthur Dent! Bring a scale! We're not a bunch of "big women, haven't you noticed us???? Too bad my "mafia-ettes" couldn't make it tonight BUT fear not!!!! We shall encounter the likes of you soon enough and you will eat your words! LOL!

    December 21, 2011

  • David

    lol, I was slammed for just mentioning how funny the quote from "As good as it gets" is, Arthur is really asking for it. Oh, BTW, women have higher pain thresholds, more patience with maticulous work, stronger ability to judge emotions in peoples faces, and other advantages. We are different, but the words better/worse shouldnt come into it.

    while this is not germane to the recent comments, here is a nice scientific debate on male/female differences: http://www.edge.org/3rd_culture/debate05/debate05_index.html

    Oh that's right The Shining is amazing! Love that one, he has tons of great ones obviously

    December 21, 2011

  • David

    Good job...but how about 'The Shining'. Many say its the single scariest movie of all time! As you know, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy". Perhaps driven by testosterone, men have a greater propensity toward violent behavior.

  • Kelly

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest for certain which is probably his best work(or maybe Chinatown) and in Anger Management and Batman I don't know if he's technically mental ill but his character sure acts crazy

    December 21, 2011

  • David

    Hey, like i said, it was Jack's quote, not mine.... but I did manage to hint at a frequently mentioned male/female difference. Guys are more into movie quotes. Not including "As good as it gets", who can name 3 more movies that Jack plays a man that's mentally ill. Using IMDB is cheating!

    December 20, 2011

  • Hildi

    Pound for pound the women of Ockham's are (at the very least) equal to the men. Oh, David- you have lots to learn! Kevin knows how to remain in good standing with his fellow female freethinkers. :)

    December 20, 2011

  • Kevin

    Too easy David! Jack Nicholson, one of the best actors ever...but man are you treading on thin ice! The movie was "As Good as it Gets." Of course that doesn't apply to freethinking women.

    December 20, 2011

  • David

    "You can't handle the truth", ;)

    My favorate movie quote related to this subject was spoken by the same actor. He was talking about how he describs women, and he said "I think of a man, then I take away reason and accountability".

    Not my quote mind you! but kudos to who can guess the name of the actor and in which 2 moves he spoke those two lines.

    December 18, 2011

  • Hildi

    Bring it on David! You know the women who attend Ockham's are not meek! LOL! I'm bringing 2 friends on Wednesday. They are new to the group. The women just might outnumber the men on Wednesday! :)

    December 17, 2011

  • David

    LOL, this is going to be a humorous topic. But, will people feel free to speak their mind in mixed company... we shall see.
