Men polled on attitudes about women, sex

NEW YORK, Dec. 12 (UPI) — A majority of young men think women are oversensitive about sexual harassment in the workplace and would have sex with a minor if they could get away with it, according to a poll released Monday.

Glamour magazine surveyed 1,000 men in their 20’s and 30’s a number of questions on sex, relationships, morality and personal appearance.

The findings:

  • Today’s young men prefer voluptuous to model-thin.  69% said they were more likely to fantasize about Guess? model Anna Nicole Smith vs. 27% who prefered super-waif Kate Moss.
  • If stranded on a desert island, 67% would rather be stranded with a Playboy Playmate instead of with an Outward Bound instructor.
  • More than 50% responded that they would choose to marry a woman who was 20 years older than they were over a woman who was 20 pounds heavier than they were.
  • 71% felt that women see themselves too much as victims.  56% thought women were over-sensitive about sexual harassment in the workplace.
  • Regarding morality, 54% told interviewers that they would sleep with a beautiful and willing 15-year-old and 55% said they would have sex with their mates’ female friends if no one would find about it.  If their best friend raped a stranger, 47% said they would turn him in.
  • Regarding personal appearance, 55% would encourage their wives or girlfriends to get breast implants if the surgery were painless, safe and free. On the other hand, only 33% of men would get pectoral impants under the same circumstances.
  • Regarding their own sexuality, 36% think they are better than other men in bed. 24% put themselves in the top 10 percent, while 29% said they were just average.  When asked if “size really matters”, the answer from most men was yes: 62% told pollsters that being well-endowed was much more important to them than being tall.
  • And finally – 58% admitted they have had sex with a woman they actively disliked.

Does Santa Exist? The Physics of Santa Claus

By web gangsta | Published:

Scientists have decided to prove conclusively whether SANTA CLAUS CAN PHYSICALLY EXIST or not, based on proven scientific method.

You will have to visit the site to see how they handled their calculations, but they figured out approximately how many homes Santa has to visit in a given evening (91.8 million), the number of total hours Santa has to work with due to the earth’s rotation (31 hours), giving us the total number of house visits that Santa would need to make per second (822.4).

Of course, they’ve also determined that Santa would need 214,200 flying reindeer, not the Super Original Eight Reindeer (let’s face it – Rudolph never was able to pull his own weight, he was mere decoration at the front of the hood).

The scientiest final conclusion is not a pretty one, after they added up all the math and determined the “best case” scenarios — all documented, of course.  But you’ll have to click over there to see what they came up with.
