Why Don't Man Listen?

For this one, Dr. Billy exhaustively searched for an answer. How sweet would it be if there existed the perfect scientific comeback for the next time a woman screamed at you, "Why are you ignoring me!"

Well, here are the inklings of our anatomical answers...In the September 2005 issue of the journal Neuroimage, psychiatric researchers at the University of Sheffield reported that male and female voices activate distinct regions of the male brain. The scientists monitored the brain activity of twelve men as they listened to male and female voices. They found that in men, women's voices stimulate an area of the brain used for processing complex sounds, like music. Male voices, on the other hand, activate a region of the brain used for producing imagery. This may suggest that, at least for men, the female voice is more complex and more difficult to hear and understand.But there's more...An earlier study in the July 2001 issue of Radiology also showed that men and women listen differently. In this study, researchers at Indiana University had twenty men and twenty women listening to a passage from a novel. While listening, they underwent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brain. A majority of the men showed exclusive activity on the left side of the brain, but a majority of the women showed activity on both sides of the brain. Now there is certainly more research to be done, but we can put these two pieces together and start to make a leap toward excusing occasional male lapses in listening to their female partners.
So men out there, here is our suggested comeback when you are accused of not listening:Honey, I try so hard to listen. It's just that my brain is incapable of doing what my heart desires. (Then go back to watching football.)

Well ... this question is so subjective, not all men react this way but... how about you or your peartner?

I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.

Your Music

So sing, from the bottom of your heart
Dance , with your body waving free
And live, putting your soul into it
And when you love, love as though you have never been wounded, even if you have.

Truth of truth

The line between right and wrong had blurred. In my search for truth, I had become a lie. Perhaps some secrets should remain secret.

It would be very important to Learn to understand people different from yourself,
and to accept others as they are.

Precious moment

When you woke this morning, did you look forward joyously to the day? When you go to bed tonight, do you think you will be filled with satisfaction? Do you think the place you are in precious?

Me? - Yes. I do. Sometimes I don't but now ... Yes.

Perfect Closet

Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass. And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim. The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long. We are tired, we are scared, denying it doesn't change the truth. Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world. Head on, guns blazing. De Nile. It's not just a river in Egypt, it's a freakin' ocean. So how do you keep from drowning in it?

What Do I Want?

As Ray Porter watches Mirabelle walk away he feels a loss. How is it possible, he thinks, to miss a woman whom he kept at a distance so that when she was gone he would not miss her. Only then does he realize that wanting part of her and not all of her had hurt them both and how he cannot justify his actions except that... well... it was life.

I'm a...woman?

A woman needs to be held, even, and science has shown this, if itswith someone she doesn't care about. Protective hormones are released,and the amount of hormones released depends on the degree to which sheis held. The first and best is the complete surround. He wraps you inboth arms, whispers how beautiful you are. Second best is the 'armaround.' He is next to you but with one arm around you. Third is he'sjust next to you on his elbow, but he rests his hand on your stomachand looks at you. Fourth is you snuggling up to him with your head onhis chest, while he looks away into space. But when the first besthappens, you feel completely, wonderfully like a woman.
