        So three days PMT eave a year ergo that means Taiwanese women have a period once every four months .

        This goes a long way to explaining ;

        1) the burgeoning population in the East as a whole given the longer opportunity for regular uninterrupted sex sessions .

        2) the greater productivity of that region occasioned by the greater energy expended on working as opposed to menstruating .

        3) The menopause will come roughly 75 petcent later in SE Asisnn women than in the West thus delaying the mebnopause and normalising the custom of grandmotherly ladies seen bringing up ” orphan progeny ” putatively the offspring of a dead relative .

        Western world gone soft a long time ago …

      Killing your daughter with an overdose of Calpol and throwing the body into the sea may be manslaughter and obstruction of justice, but it is not murder.

    Bleeding Heart/ Vagina Liberals quick question after the menopause do these women in Taiwan lost their 3 extra days holiday entitlement. Asking for a friend going through a sex change, he will do anything for a few extra days holiday.

    THree days annually for a monthly problem? That sounds like someone trying to *prove* that it is phoney!
    Actually some women do suffer severe pain and some, but not all of those, do take sick leave which may be deduced from the sickness leave data (despite hangovers and smashed thumbs being an overwhelmingly male problem single women had significantly higher sickness absence than men when data was compiled distinguishing between single and married women – married women had far higher sick leave than either).
    So those that *really* need it do, or at least can, get it. Why should those who do *not* need it get an extra 24 or 48 days leave a year? Should those who have period pains at weekends get days off in lieu?

    What do the people on the LGBT short bus get? I’d guess something like this:

    L (women who think they’re men): 0 days per year
    G (men who think they’re women): 3 days per year
    B ((wo)men who kinda think they’re men(wo)): 1.5 days per year
    T (men who really, really think they’re women): 12 days per year (gotta love a trier)

    The guardian has been getting worse with its articles over time. No wonder that its sale of autotrader and it reserves of cash are the the only thing that’s keeping it afloat. Whilst it should have enough cash on current burn rates ie losses to keep going for 20 years. I do feel that a tipping point could come where it suffers a permanent loss of ad revenue as users switch to other media.

      The guardian with its sale of autotrader has reserves of £872 million with losses last year of £45 million so even without investing the cash it should be able to continue for 22 years on a straight line burn rate. However if its readers decline rapidly or it goes behind a paywall and only 100,000 are prepared to pay for it, then its advertising rates could drop increasing its losses.

Eddie Izzard, in his thirteenth year involved in politics, says he’s not cursed because it took Sir Alex Ferguson “seven years to win the premiership so it doesn’t really matter.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
