Most women of my acquaintance either do not suffer as you do or they are incredibly good at concealing it. To be honest, it's not really the sort of thing I would ask them about.

I think that's werewolves. What if the partner is female? Can you imagine having two pained and hormonally imbalanced women in a confined space?

At least you'd have some fun and maybe a midnight BBQ as well.

It is generally held to be a truism that "Any day in which you learn something is a good day" so I've had a good day as far as mooncups are concerned.

Groups of women sharing the same space do generaly align their cycles after a short while. Must be a throw back to the herd instinct to all calve at once and have safety in numbers.

So keep away from the collectives and convents at full moon.

Well, clearly you've never met me. Every time it's a full day out of my life that I don't get anything done except lay in bed with painkillers and a
heating pad.
Oh, and lucky me, I get hormonal migraines too.
Have to say though, I never thought a discussion of mooncups with a bunch of men would be this entertaining!

Is it a woman thing? My wife will walk into a sunlit room and turn the lights on. She and our daughters seem to conspire in turning on every single lightbulb in the house
Can't say that it is. I am the one in our house who is always turning things off. And listening to hubby coming in, flipping on every single light, asking, "How can you read in the dark like that?" (Why can he not understand that if I thought it was dark I would have turned it on myself!)
Hubby and I have each run out of gas exactly once apiece, and were close enough to coast it to the pump when it died.

And AazaDana - you are right on all of it!!
Greasy/dirty engine/mechanical stuff can go in the engine room, or outside. That's IT. We know you don't intend to make a mess, but 2 drops of that gunk on the rug, and we'll be smelling it forever in our living space.
The galley is for cooking. The stuff in the galley is for cooking. The bowls are not for catching oil during a change. The knives are not for scraping the gunk out of the slots in the AC or chiseling the buildup in the head pipes (even if they are the right size). And the vegetable brush is not perfect for scouring ANYTHING BUT FOOD. If you need them, we will happily buy you your own bowl, knife, and scrubbrush.

Oh yeah: I am left-handed. Ever notice how many of us there are in positions of power and celebrity? We are taking over the world.
You have been warned.

What is the difference between a terrorist and a woman with PMS?

You can negotiate with a terrorist.

Ok… let me pose another question specific to sailing and cruising…..

In what ways do you think it has made you and your partner more the same?

But you can multi-task, all women can. My wife assures me that this is true. If one of us blokes gets a headache we have to spend ALL our time experiencing it because we can only single-task. My wife assures me that is true as well and that it explains "Man flu".

Hey that's *logical* thought. You can't do that

What??!!?? You can't serious. The galley is merely a collection of untapped resources for doing "stuff" with. How could it be otherwise?
