What Is The Secret of Women?

This question was asked:

What is the secret of women? I asked someone in my taxicab if he knew, and he said he was gay and had no idea. “Don’t even ask me about women,” he said. “That’s why I’m gay.” I’ve asked other people, too. One guy sort of smirked and said he has no problem with women at all. Yet he couldn’t (or wouldn’t) say any more. The thing is, human beings have been around more than half a million years, and I’m just wondering if comedies, such as “There’s Something About Mary,” are the best we can do? At the other extreme we have Shakespeare’s love sonnets. Yet seeing such movies, or reading those poems, don’t really help a person in day-to-day life, when we actually meet women. It’s as if they have some kind of radar attuned to something, yet you just can’t tell what it is. Maybe the San Francisco Bay area simply isn’t such a good place to hit it off with women. You’d think it would be a lot easier. And please, don’t start thinking there’s something wrong with me, because there isn’t. I’ve had girlfriends I’ve been crazy about, and who have been crazy about me, yet even then, I could not tell you in words, why.

And here is the AWESOME answer:

Thanks for such a well-written and interesting question. This may well have been the “original question” if Adam and Eve once existed. Obviously this has been debated throughout history and if a definitive answer had been found, we would have been taught it in high school. I shall now provide you with a variety of answers to this age-old enigma…

Savvy Male has a very good, concise summary of women, with such nuggets as:
– They have the ultimate biological multitasking operating system known to man
– Compliment a woman about her dress/hair/perfume in the first 5 minutes of a date.
– Women don’t need to be fixed. They were born with all working parts, and all put together. Just listen.

There are more physical differences between men and women than just the obvious attributes:

Men and women “use different sides of their brains to process and store long-term memories of emotional experiences”:

Women can multi-task because they use both sides of the brain:

Although they have smaller brains, women’s have “more nerve cells in their frontal lobes”:

One thing to keep in mind is that women get more pleasure from sex than men do, according to Tiresias who spent seven years as a woman in a Greek myth. Divulging this information cost him his eyesight.

They speak a different language:

Women of the Yao ethnic group in Hunan province, China, have their own language:

Even when they use English, some deciphering is required:

The secret of women’s language: Keywords and their meanings – FINE: This is a word a woman uses at the end of any argument that she feels she is in the right about but needs to shut you up. NEVER use fine to describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments.

An understanding of body language will enable you to know when a woman wants you to approach her and when she wants you to go away:

Secret of Women

Diary Of A Mesopotamian Farmer

10,000 years ago
Mesopotamia

Self-profile

Name: Isam
Address: Large Mud Hut Near The River
Occupation: Farmer

Skills:

¨ Cultivation of wheat, barley, flax, and peas.
¨ domestication of sheep, cows and goats
¨ tanning of leather
¨ developed method of irrigation to maintain crops

Daily responsibilities:

¨ Feed livestock at daybreak.
¨ retrieve milk from cows and goats
¨ carry milk to wife for cheese making
¨ check crops for weeds, pulling any I find
¨ turn livestock out to graze
¨ retrieve water from the river, using a goat to carry buckets
¨ carefully water crops
¨ harvest as necessary
¨ hand cultivate plots for re-planting
¨ round up livestock before dusk, return them to their enclosure

Weekly responsibilities:

¨ slaughter goat, sheep or cow for meat
¨ stretch hides for tanning
¨ make repairs on mud hut as necessary

Other activities:

When I am not working in my fields or trying to design a better irrigation system, I assist my neighbors with their livestock and crops. We trade often with each other – barley for wheat, mutton for beef, flaxen cloth for woven woolens, milk for cheese.

My wife is a skilled weaver and cheesemaker – she is known throughout the region for her finely woven flaxen linens and her rich and perfectly cured cheeses. She works daily to maintain our household,
filling the air with the scent of her rich lamb stews and unleavened bread, and working to spin yarn, weave fabric, and sew comfortable clothing for us. Our daughter assists her in these daily tasks. (Until his death recently from a mysterious fever, our son helped to tend the sheep. He fell ill shortly after several sheep had died, but the village healer could not help him. He suspected the boy may have been made ill by the sheep!)

It is my goal to improve irrigation and harvest methods, as well as ease the burden of working the soil, so that my entire day is not spent in the fields. I would like to spend a bit more time learning to fashion clay pots in which to store our grains, but this requires time and I am very tired at the end of the day.

20,000 Years Ago – Ice Age – North America

Scientists believe that early humans crossed the Bering Straits into what is now called Alaska about 20,000 years ago. Somewhat taller and more robust than their earlier counterparts, these humans had to concern themselves with keeping warm. They built sturdy huts (from animal hides wrapped around strong posts, bound together with sinew) with central hearths for winter quarters, made innovations in stitching their garments (bone needles with eyes in them, for instance) from animal skin and developed new methods of weaving cloth and better methods of tanning skins. In the summer, they followed the
herds and lived in easily moved tents.

As with their predecessors, the daily life of the Ice Age human centered primarily around the hunt. Game was plentiful and varied – large game birds, mammoths, caribou and bison flourished. It was at about this time that the bow and arrow was developed, allowing for greater flexibility in the hunt.

A more socialized tribal structure was developing. Art and story telling are said to have flourished, and items such as beads, shells and small carvings were used to barter for items, much in the manner
of modern currency. Based on some artifacts found, it seems religion also began to develop – carved female figurines known as “Venus figures” hint at Earth or Goddess worship.

The Ice Age human’s day began before sun-up. As with his predecessors, he shared hunting responsibilities with others of his tribe. The few not out hunting for the day would remain behind to
help protect the women and children from predators (bears and saber-toothed cats chief among them), to tan hides, cure meat, and assist in repairing huts. Others were responsible for making tools, spears, bows and arrows.

While the men were out hunting, women foraged for wild grains (such as wheat and barley), root vegetables (such as yams and wild potatoes) and assorted berries and nuts. They were also responsible for catching small animals (squirrels and hares) to help supplement the diet of the tribe. Like the men, they divided the labor – some women would forage, others would see to catching small prey, others would remain behind to mind the children and dogs (who were becoming domesticated around this time), grind flour for unleavened bread, cook, weave cloth from plants such as nettles, and sew garments and boots. Evidence indicates that nets and ropes were also made, to aid in the capture of small prey and in the catching of fish in coastal communities.

Tasks alternated daily to help provide a fair division of labor.

The hunters typically returned shortly before sundown with their catches, which were immediately skinned and cleaned, and portioned out for curing or cooking. Meals were communal, and consisted of that day’s kill, as well as the nuts, fruits and vegetables gathered that day.

In the evenings, those skilled at carving would take up their tools to create beads, decorative carvings, and figurines. Evidence points to some worship rituals that included the entire tribe, perhaps a collective giving of thanks. Most members of the tribe retired to sleep shortly after sundown, exhausted by the day’s strenuous activity. Bedding consisted of furs and skins, and exhibits at Chicago’s Field Museum indicate that sleeping arrangements began including raised beds fashioned from wood and rope at about this time.
