    I'm much better than my husband at poker. I lie (aka bluff) better. But he kicks my butt at chess. I am just too impatient.

    I don't think there are many pro women poker players because they aren't as willing to stake everything on a game of chance, especially ones with kids to feed. I wonder how many of these pro men have families?

    BF Skinnner:

    Radical behaviorism seeks to understand behavior as a function of environmental histories of reinforcing consequences.

    In a June, 2002 survey, Skinner was listed as the most influential psychologist of the 20th

    Nope - that statement seems like a complete oxymoron to me.

    Men are such a hopeful species, despite their comprehension challenges.

    Well said.

    I'll let you in on a secret.......women are even more hopeful that they can resolve the comprehension issues.

    Now that, to me, is is an oxymoron, and I am female.

    No, no, there's a quite simple and brilliant solution - get to the point and know when to shut up.

    If women were ever to realize that they cannot change men it would be a death-knell for society.

    Men marry women who, at that time, represent the person they want to be with for the rest of their lives, and women marry men who they want to change. Both sexes are disappointed.
