It’s true. Men are very bad at just being quiet and keeping to themselves.

@InvaderXan Man here, as an anecdote, not sure this is true about me.

@z112

And yet you needed to say something and not keep it to yourself, thus proving the point.

Just like I am doing right now.

@InvaderXan I, for one, am willing to halt Boris Johnson with a sharp "sh!", as often as necessary.

@InvaderXan as someone who just may have screamed.

Damn u right

@InvaderXan Quite the trap you’ve laid here...

...he says from inside the trap

@InvaderXan and the men who do manage to do so, are often shamed for it *sigh*

@InvaderXan I think this is a bad generalization to make. But the Pascal quote is one I have thought a lot about, not sure though. Sitting in a room sounds a lot like prison to me. The human genome is evolved for frontiers and exploration, it is not something you can turn off with a switch. This is a major topic in american history, the end of the frontier, lookup Turner, we read him in AP history.
