    Language Protien - Why Women Talk More Than Men

    No kidding. The folks at Science World Report published an article explaining that women speak about 3 times as many words per day than men (20k vs 7k) due to a higher level of a "language protein". Nurture vs nature takes another blow. Biological imperative/adaptive significance?

    America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

    Some might need this option.

    It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.~Thomas Sowell

    Its because we can only bear to listen to a third of what they say. It's like fish bearing millions of fry to ensure one or two survive .
