I'll be nice since getting in touch with their feminine side is not a common trait to Portagee herring fishers.

Alex, I thing PB meant when it comes to your children your soft heart shows, so we know you are not all that tough after all.

No Problem. I lived in Sicily for two years, and Sicilian fathers I suspect are not all that different from Portuguese.

Alex - you can't be macho and whine at the same time

Let me relate a little story of mine about sailing on Guilietta. I learned to snow ski at the age of 33 (kinda old for that stuff, but that's beside the point). The lift would go up past a place called Eagle Rock, a cliff face about, 30 feet or so high. We would watch people go off of there. I used to tell myself, "I can't wait till I'm good enough to do that." Well, the day came when I was good enough, and then I said, "WHY would I want to do that?"

I've pushed the envelope so many times, I got glue on my forehead, and when I look back, the main thing I remember is having to get that damn glue off my forehead!

Oh, and by the way, if any of you have wondered what I'd sound like when well lubricated ... today is the day. It's been blowing snot all day, and there ain't been much else to do but crank the tunes and suck the brews.

I don't know who the tunes are, but you shouldn't be sucking on their brews

Your lack of familiarity with the American idiom is your saving grace

Sorry to go all "deep" in this thread without any photoshopping but a few things to remember:
- The examples you gave are behavior differences which are based on both genetic and environmental (socialized) factors and we don't know how much of both.
- There *are* brain differences between men and women but
1) they are very small compared to the similarities between men and women and the differences WITHIN each gender... which makes one wonder why people are so focused on them.
2) everything we experience is stored in our brain. "Things stored in our brain" must be done so by alterations to structures or neural connections or neurochemistry. So we don't know how much of any brain differences are genetic or environmental.

Livia,
the different methods of storing experiences doesn't explain why men remember " you can play cards with the boys all night " but forget to take out the trash on tuesdays.
Where as women will always remember what they wore when, but not where they put our screw drivers.
