"There are more women drivers, by quantity, than men ... but men drive more, longer, and farther than women. So, you'd expect more violations/ accidents on average. I doubt insurance has all that nuanced a view of…"

Note: a few months ago, I…"
"I know a little about them because of a similar situation. Except on mine, the thermostat must have arced and melted and filled the air with an awful smell. Made it lukewarm one minute and scalding the next."
"I am certainly no plumber or Master Carpenter, but I do know a wee bit of water heater anatomy.
A large water heater has two elements. The top and the lower. I forgot which is the main, but the main heater is the one which maintains the temp. The…"
"What are you doing to make yourself desirable? Do you lift, eat well? Do you have hobbies outside and away from your wife? Ask yourself would you have sex with you. One phrase that I hear frequently is that "You cannot negotiate desire."…"
