    It's not the Flu that's different though. It's that we're crap at fighting it.
    So the women are right about this one.
    :eek:

    Yes but the effect on us is more severe because we're so feeble :eek: So we have every right to be bigger babies about it ;)

    Yeah. But I think we've lost this one... For now!!

    Women generally do out live men... Or is there a huge age gap here?

    I have never thought about it, but it does make a lot of sense.

    Of course it's a lot more fun to just assume men are wusses. :D

    That does make sense......during pregnancy. ;) Lots of things happen to a woman's body during pregnancy.


    So women are better at fighting disease, have a higher pain tolerance than men, and get less grossed out from blood?


    Perhaps us men have been the 'women' all this time. Certainly explains my relationships....

    Bird Flu is obviously the female equivalent to Man Flu, and look at all the fuss there was over that...

    ^^^I'm sure this won't register with the Americans on the board.


    And what about swine flu?
