Solving the Mysteries of the Universe

According to the latest research "news" ( and when I reference the New York Times, I always put the word "news" in quotes), the reason pregnant women don't tip over, is that they have evolved with a different shaped vertebrae in their lower back, which makes the lower back more flexible, and able to distribute pressure better.

Which explains a whole lot.

Now not only do we know the answer to the non-tipping mystery, but also to the theory on why women are better dancers than men, and finally, FINALLY ladies, the answer to why women are so much better able to put clothes from the washer to the dryer.

Glad we could clear that up.

I'll sleep so much better tonight--that has kept me worrying for years. Thanks for bringing that to our attention ; ) And you questioned my giving you the "Blogger with Integrity--For Social Conscience" Award. Remember I said "...she seems to be aware of everything that's going on--which helps me stay aware!!!"

Who spends money on these things? SERIOUSLY?! Why can't they give ME the money and I'll study something... like... where socks go when they disappear in the dryer. Throw money at me to study something!!

Someone has way to much time on their hands. Give me some of that time and I'll figure out why a man is physically unable to put the new toilet paper on the roll.
