Gender gap

Can you guys point me in the direction of some information on the gender gap and how now women seem to be outdoing men in school and work?

Thanks!

no, seriously... (re: cary elwes)

you know the actor named cary elwes? beloved for movies such as the princess bride and robin hood: men in tights?

how do you pronounce his last name? I always say its EL-WES like it looks, the letter "l" plus "wes". however, others have tried to correct me and say that its "yules". yep, I'm that bored already this morning and I had to ask. have a good day guys!

Ideas? Suggestions?

I have to make a present for my boyfriend for an anniversary today, but I haven't got a clue what I could make that would be a nice present for this sort of occasion.

Here's the scenario:

He's been giving me 30 or 31 flowers every month, often accompanied by a story or a poem he wrote for me. This month I've already gotten the flowers and the story, and also the promise of more presents! I think they involve a vibrator I really wanted, which is hard to compete with [not that we're competing].

I really want to give him something or do something for him that lets him know I appreciate him, and I'm not just in it for the monthly flowers :)

I just lost my job and have absolutely no money to spend on this endeavor. We have sex often enough that it wouldn't be considered "a special event," so that's out.

What can I do?

Weird Al

I recently picked up "Poodle Hat," his newest album. I purposely bought it rather than download the tracks cos I want him to succeed. I haven't even checked for them on Kazaa.

I can't rip the tracks from the CD cos it's copy protected. I love the CD but I can't play it on my computer at all cos of the copy protection.

My question is: Since I already plunked down the cash for the CD, would it be hypocritical to d/l the tracks anyway? So I can play them on WinAmp?

If there's an electrical storm coming, do you unplug electronic appliances? Or just turn everything off?

'Cause it looks like we've got one coming up, but I really don't wanna get off the computer! ::whines::

how do irons get wrinkles out?
What is wind?
Why doesn't double sided tape stick to itself in the dispenser?
How high does the sky go?
Why don't the stars fall?
Why is the sea blue?
How many layers are their to the earths crust?
How do cups do that prespiring thing?

What's up with LJ icons, these days? I mean, come on. So confusing. In a short sentence, my (horrible) icon can be explained. My skateboard broke. It caught me by surprise. The company is named Element. The Element of Surprise. But most people have an icon, with some random words on it. Something stupid, like "Sometimes it hurts." No, really? And exactly what is this "it"? You know, it's kinda... I dunno. In a nice word, silly. What ever happened to just a picture of yourself?
