    Some things just defy explanation

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I don't get it? Did you learn that pregnancy only happens in woman through pornos or something?

    If you ask me this is probably just as much of a case in lack of responsibility as it is human ignorance. Who ever handles the absentee days in payroll probably didn't look further into his absentee other than the fact that he was sick and wasn't coming in. They didn't notice why because they really didn't care why until he was sick for about a week and they really wanted to know what was going on. It is a humorous story, though.

    a pregnant man. I think he looks so sweet.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    People in the village where he lived had mercilessly teased him and told him he looked pregnant. Ironically, they were right.


    That's actually the story I thought of after reading the original article. How did they know he wasn't pregnant??

    No no, thats not what i meant, what i meant was that its possible that the fellow had no idea about the functioning of a womans body and a mans body..he doesnt need to watch pornos for that, he just needs some lessons in biology.

    Ok, I just didn't know "conservative societies" didn't teach anatomy, so I just didn't get the reference.

    Well, its not exactly the teaching part, but discussions about sex and anything related to reproduction are quite taboo..
