"I have another suggestion that I recently incorporated into my morning routine with decent success. First off, I decided I can't stand buzzing alarms. They cause me to get out of bed, turn them off, and then go back to bed without actually…"

"Kind of like "Boys like things that go boom, shoot, go vroom, etc.  Things that go boom, shoot, and go vroom, etc. are bad things.  Therefore boys are bad." Types of studies."

"Feminists would tar and feather anybody that even tried to do such a study.  I wouldn't bet on somebody risking their livelihood on that one. This kind of circumstantial or anecdotal data is probably the best you'll ever get. …"

"I'm pretty sure the female penchant for the comforts of life is what drove us into and out of the cave in the first place. Leave it up to men, and we'd never know what a duvet is."

Article: Is there anything good about men?

http://denisdutton.com/baumeister.htmI'm curious what other people around here think of this somewhat lengthy article on differences between men and women. Overall, I found the author to be balanced and echoing much of what I've read on this site before. i.e. Neither men nor woman are better, just different due to evolutionary advantages.
