Okay, my sister forwarded me an e-mail that originated from my niece, which has put them both on my "mediocre Christmas gift" list, which...probably won't make any difference, since I'm such a mediocre shopper...whatever, here's a few jewels:
WHY DON'T WOMEN BLINK DURING SEX?
(they don't have enough time)

Okay, let me explain it one more time: Traveling successfully from Point A to Point B is a test. A test of your navigation skills, memory recall, psychic abilities, etc. Asking directions is not only cheating on said test, it's the equivalent of saying, "Can you help me find my mommy?" Losing an hour or two is a small price to pay for retaining your dignity.
