Got Migraines?  Then you might be much less likely to get breast cancer.

Um . . . especially if you're a woman.

Seems to be an estrogen thing, but this seems like a promising line of research.

Heh. Men can get breast cancer. It's rare, but it happens.

Yeah -- I just figure the odds won't be lowered so much, for guys, since the odds are so low to begin with.

The same day, I also saw an article that "vigorous activity" may protect against breast cancer.  The article kept using that phrase and not, say, 'exercise', which made me wonder if they were getting at something.

Really?

I am . . . not good with pickup lines.  I admit this wholeheartedly.  My sex-inducing speech skills don't come into play until a woman already knows me a little.

I am shy and reserved.  :batteyes:

Anyway,  :boobies:

Yeah, honestly, in my experience pickup lines are nothing more than ironic conversational icebreakers in situations where actually developing a relationship right there on the spot is out of the question.

Of course, that's always been out of the question for me. I just do not have that kind of effect on women no matter what I say!

Well, how about, Hey, baby -- I promise not to talk!


:bolt:


When I was a barfly in Florida, we heard endless bad pickup lines, and we used to make up parody pickup lines, well aware that they might work equally well.  "You'd look even more beautiful if you'd agree to have sex with me later!" or "We haven't met, but I was wondering if we could have sex first and then get to know each other afterward, assuming the sex wasn't too dismal." or "I'm too nice to ask for a blowjob in the parking lot, but maybe we could go back to my place." etc, etc.

But it's hard to do worse than lines you can actually overhear being used in bars.

A male friend of mine was partial to "I have a ten inch tongue and I can breathe through my ears".

Never saw it actually work though. The line, not the tongue.

When I was a barfly in Florida...

Wow. For a brief moment there, I had this vision of axe in Mickey Rourke's role of Henry in the movie Barfly

:eek: That was ...odd.
It's symbolic of our struggle against reality.

I'm still no good at it. Marriage makes it harder - you know if you really mess up, you are most definitely going to see that woman again the next night, and she will laugh.
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

Yeah, but she should laugh and give you a good-natured pat on the back, or tug on the crank.



I was the barfly who didn't actually drink booze.  That's probably why I noticed more of the weird shit going on around me.
