well, it isn't the lack of talent development on PSU's offensive line (at least, not nationally):

  • 1 in 3 die of heart disease. Men in Japan live 8 years longer. Diet, smoking, booze, stress, lack of exercise, and women (ok, I added that)
  • cancer is second at 22%. Prostate is the biggest killer (mainly for black Americans who get a more aggressive strain). Colorectal is #2 cancer cause of death.
  • Suicide is 3.7 x greater for men than women
  • Accidental death is 10x greater for men than women. partly due to risk-taking but also jobs and poisoning (drugs)
I believe if you add this up, it all comes down to women

Why do married men die before married women?

Because they want to.
If you’ve ever seen how my wife treats me you’d understand. I treat her with respect and patience. Not so much the same from her. Impatient, nothings ever good enough, and constant smart ass remarks. She breaks you down mentally. Makes you not care if you get up in the morning..,

It’s lack of education. Educated men live longer than uneducated men.

But seriously, most American men work too much. This leads to stress, poor eating habits, lack of exercise, not enough sleep and on and on.

Japanese men work like dogs as well, but they seem to have better diets and are just genetically predisposed to be thinner and ultimately healthier. Being overweight and stressed does us in boys.

For many women, they are never happy which leads to this:

The Husband Store

A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.

She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

"That's nice," she thinks, "but I want more."

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop- dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

PLEASE NOTE:

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex and have money and like beer.

The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.

Amish guy lives his whole life on his farm and in his community. But as he got older he developed health issues so had to go to see a specialist in the Big City. Took his wife and son with him and they were amazed at all the huge buildings, the crazy traffic, the constant noise. They walk into the lobby of one of the towers and the wife says she needs to use the bathroom before seeing the doctor. So the man and his son are just watching the people when they see an old, over weight woman walk up to the wall and push a button. Thirty seconds later two doors slide open and the old woman steps into a small room.

About a minute later, the two doors open up again and out steps a a tall, slender redhead in a slinky tight dress. As she walks by the Amish man turns to his son and says ‘Quick.....get your mother!’

Lived in Japan for nine years. I have first hand experience to tell you the Japanese drink more alcohol and smoke more cigarettes then anywhere else in the world. Good people that work harder and exercise less than Americans. It all boils down to super, very little sweets unless you are around international areas.
