I'm 45 years old and have attended god knows how many bachelor parties, and NEVER have seen behavior like this in men. Little wonder women hate for men to have bachelor parties, the way they behave at bachelorette parties.
WI asked for views in survey on disposal of nuclear waste

Some members have stripped naked for a charity calendar but now the Women's Institute has been charged with addressing a more serious matter: how to handle thousands of tons of radioactive nuclear waste.
The WI is among a host of groups asked by a government committee to weigh up the various ways of safely disposing of the UK's store of lethal radioactive waste. The results of the public discussions will feed into the committee's final advice to ministers next year, a key step in the decision over whether to build new nuclear reactors in Britain.
Gordon MacKerron, chairman of the committee on radioactive waste management, said: "This is an issue that affects the entire country. The views of the public are very important and combined with detailed scientific considerations will help us find a solution."
To guide public discussion, the committee has produced a booklet that introduces options and the criteria on which they should be evaluated. Professor MacKerron said: "The guide is designed for groups of people to get together, whether in a school, village hall or the local pub, to discuss the subject. You do not have to have any specialist knowledge on radioactive waste to take part."
More than 1,700 copies have been sent to groups including schools and councils. But the move has fuelled criticism that the committee is pursuing public consultation at the expense of expert advice. Senior scientists at the Royal Society and the House of Lords science and technology select committee have expressed concern over the committee's work and two members have quit in protest over how it ignored scientific advice.
John Large, an independent nuclear consultant, said: "This is public consultation gone bananas. The disposal of radioactive waste is extremely complex and you have to make sure what you're going to do is technically possible."
The committee has four options for the public to consider, including burying the waste deep underground or keeping it in specialist facilities at the surface. Prof MacKerron said: "We have another process for getting the best technical information together and there will be some way we will combine that with the best of the consultation." The government has said it first wants to solve what to do with nuclear waste before it builds more reactors. Some 470,000 cubic metres of radioactive waste are stored.
Quote from: "The Biscuit Queen"SO how the hell do you know what time it is other states? Doesn't that get really confusing?
We dont care what time it is in other states. We have sunshine, nice women and guns.
I personally dont remember any time a professional female athlete has ever tried to get into a male only league, I know it's happened in lil' leagues. I therefore don't support this.
Take a break buddy and get out of all this negativity for a while. I did, and it felt great to have a breather.
Hope to see you back, soon.
That's russia, and Russia's incompetant. You said that if Hillary Clinton became president, that she would execute men. Do you think the american gov't would allow that? This isn't a nation of commies, this is a democracy. The president have all-control over everything! They have a little control over alot.
In short, you are a paranoid nincumpoop, and a conspiracy theorist. ALL CONSPIRACY THEORISTS ARE WRONG. And you can quote me on that.
QuoteGood think-through, but your conclusion is only one of the two most likely...some strong women end up with extremely masculine men and then settle down to a lifetime (or less, depending on who runs out of patience first) of duking it out to see who gets to be boss.
I think that's one of the biggest problems happening in marriages today. The man and woman are no longer complementary - it's yin and yin - a power struggle between two strong people (strong as in, bitchy-assertive-me-me-me ). If a man then chooses to cave in and acquiesce to his wife's every whim, he'll lose her respect and she'll inevitably leave him in the future. Either way, you will lose with a "strong" woman like this. Avoid at all costs - or you will pay all costs.
...WEAVE is adamant they help men, too.
"We do provide shelter services," said Michelle Coleman, WEAVE director of crisis services, stamping her foot petulantly, fully prepared to cry on demand if it would help her case. "At WEAVE we provide services to everyone."
