You May Outlift Me But I Will Outlast You!

The following post is in response to the following statement which I received via email from a lovely individual who shall remain nameless...

Chairman of the Department of Military Science at the University of Michigan, who conducted a test of Army officer candidates, and found that: The 
top 20 percent of women at West Point achieved scores on the Army Physical 
Fitness Test equivalent to the bottom 20 percent of male cadets. Only seven 
percent of women can meet a score of 60 on the push-up test, while 78 percent 
of men exceed it. A 20- to 30-year-old woman has the same aerobic capacity as a 50-year- old man. Only one woman out of 100 could meet a physical standard 
achieved by 60 out of 100 men. Woman by nature are smaller and slower, and 
have 40% less upper body strength.

Now I realize that females may not be as strong as males BUT there are many [more important] things I and my good friend Cosmopolitan would like to highlight.
CLICK HERE to read the full description of Cosmo's "Things Women Do Better Than Men"
1. We evolve hotter
2. We survive car accidents more often (men 77% more likely to die)
3. We're better at seeking comfort
4. We're more recession proof
5. We graduate college more often (and do it in a more timely fashion!)
6. We eat healthier
7. We have stronger immune systems
8. We live longer
9. We're better managers
10. We invest better

In conclusion, yes it is a wee bit embarrassing that a 20-30 year old woman has the aerobic capacity of a 50 year old man BUT I would rather have a better immune system, invest wisely, and most importantly... be hotter :)

World Cup Fever!!

Everyone knows that soccer is the best sport in the world BUT did you know...

-Uruguay was the first country to win the World Cup in 1930
- Scotland has qualified 8 times for the World Cup but has never cleared the first round
- Hakan Sukur scored the fastest goal from a kick off in 11 seconds against South Korea in 2002
- Hungary holds the best margin win over El Salvador in 1982 with a 10-1 win

I hope everyone enjoys the most amazing and spectacular sporting event in the world! The 2010 FIFA WORLD CUP SOUTH AFRICA is going to be an exciting one!

Oh and one more thing... GO ITALY GO!
