I think the “women are mysterious” thing can also come from:

1) Women actually being quite clear, but not telling men what they want to hear.  ”She said she doesn’t want to talk to me?  So many mixed messages and confusing signals!”

2) Women not having cheat codes.  ”I tried being nice, and she didn’t have sex with me.  I tried being an asshole, and she didn’t have sex with me.  Come on, there’s got to be some kind of solution to this puzzle!”

3) Women not being a hive mind.  ”First a woman told me that she likes guys with big muscles.  Then the very next day a woman told me she thinks muscles aren’t attractive at all.  Make up your mind, women!”

4) An individual woman doing something confusing, and instead of asking “why is she doing this now?” men ask “why do women always do this?”

I want to keep holding books. To touch myself on each page, saying ‘I am here. I am here. I am here.’

• Withdrawal of Israeli tanks from the Gaza border.

• Freeing all the prisoners that were arrested after the killing of the three youths.

• Lifting the siege and opening the border crossings to commerce and people.

• Establishing an international seaport and airport which would be under U.N. supervision.

• Increasing the permitted fishing zone to 10 kilometers.

• Internationalizing the Rafah Crossing and placing it under the supervision of the U.N. and some Arab nations.

• International forces on the borders.

• Easing conditions for permits to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque.

• Prohibition on Israeli interference in the reconciliation agreement.

• Re-establishing an industrial zone and improvements in further economic development in the Gaza Strip.

It’s funny how truces put forward by Hamas are declined and largely ignored by MSM but the moment Hamas reject any farcical truces agreed to by Israel (which keep the inhumane blockade on Gaza intact, for example) it’s front page news and you’ll never hear the end of it. ‘HAMAS REJECTED THE TRUCE HAMAS DOESN’T WANT PEACE’.

found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom


More than 60 years ago, a woman exploring the home she’d just bought found more than 600 love letters in the attic, hidden in a gold-trimmed hatbox. The couple involved met only a few times before the man, a soldier, shipped off to Europe during WWII. Their romance carried through the war to a wedding two weeks after his return to the United States, and a short, happy marriage. 
Two generations later, the romance of Sally Ann and Charlie lives on, thanks to a happenstance meeting in a New York restaurant and Sally Ann’s granddaughter, Newsweek writer Abigail Jones.
