I know, I'm sure as hell never wrong on anything.

A fascinating new working paper finds that men are far more likely than women to back up their arguments with appeals to a higher authority: themselves.

King and her colleagues found a huge difference in self-citation patterns between men and women. "Over the years between 1779-2011, men cite their own papers 56% more than women do," they found. And in recent decades, men have stepped up their self-citation game relative to women: "In the last two decades of our data, men self-cite 70 percent more than women."

This study also helps validate the notion that men don't like to look at maps when they get lost. lol

We invented GPS so that we can avoid asking for directions.

Men sure got lucky with that invention. Now all they have to do is look at it. But that's the same problem they had with maps....and road signs. :2razz:

Did you ask you wife first?

Now there's someone who is never wrong, even when she is.

I got her on something the other day. I forgot what it was already, probably the artist of a song or detail of a certain movie we both saw. At first she denied it, then she argued about it, then when I showed her the google she said that wasn't what she really meant. :)

Problem:

The GPS's voice is a woman. D:

I changed mine to an Australian male voice. Now it says, "Crikey! I think yer lost, mate. I can't help you. I think I'll go find someone else to help."
