She May Be The Most Unstoppable Scientist In The World
Dauqan is a woman scientist in what’s possibly the hardest place on Earth to be just a woman: Yemen.
The World Economic Forum ranks Yemen as the worst country for women’s rights. In Yemen, it’s illegal for women to just leave the house without permission from a male relative.
Even as a young girl, she was rebel. “I was a little naughty,” she says with a snicker.

Brains, Club, and Crazy: Why Men And Women Think Differently. This Guy Nails It. Women are much more complicated than men. Men are very simple. And you know why? It's because their brains are so different. First, I want to start with men. Men's brains are very unique. Most women don't realize that whether we are having sex or watching sports, our brains are made up of little boxes. We've got a box for everything. We've got a box for the car. We've got a box for the money We've got a box for the job. We've got a box for you We've got a box for the kids. We've got a box for your mother somewhere in the basement. We've got boxes everywhere. And the rule is: the boxes don't touch. When a man discusses a particular subject, we go to that particular box, we pull that box out, we open the box, and we discuss only what is in THAT BOX. And then we close the box and put it away being very, very careful not to touch other boxes. Now women's brains are very, very different from men's brains. Women's brains are made up of a big ball of wire. And everything is connected to everything. The money is connected to the car and the car is connected to your job and your kids are connected to your mother and everythingisallconnected. It's like the internet superhighway, and it's all driven by energy that we call emotion. It's one of the reasons why women tend to remember...everything. Because if you take an event and you connect it to an emotion and it burns in your memory and you can remember it forever. The same thing happens for men. It just doesn't happen very often, because quite frankly...we don't care. Women tend to care about everything. And she just loves it. Now men, we have a box in our brain that most women are not aware of. This particular box has nothing in it. In fact, we call it the 'nothing box.' And of all the boxes a man has in his brain, the 'nothing box is our favorite box. If a man has a chance, he'll go to his nothing box every time. That's why a man can do something seemingly completely brain dead for hours on end. You know, like fishing. Now they've actually measured this. The University of Pennsylvania a couple of years ago did a study and discovered that men have the ability to think about absolutely nothing, and still breathe. Women can't do it. Their mind has never stopped. And they don't understand the 'nothing box, and it drives them CRAZY because nothing drives a woman more crazy and makes them feel more irritated than to watch a man doing nothing. laughoutloud-club: The Nothing Box That Makes Women Angry

 Women are much more complicated than men. Men
 are very simple. And you know why? It's because
 their brains are so different. First, I want to start with

 don't realize that whether we are having sex or

 We've got a box for the job. We've got a box for you
 We've got a box for the kids. We've got a box for
 your mother somewhere in the basement.
 We've got boxes everywhere. And the rule is: the
 boxes don't touch. When a man discusses a particular
 subject, we go to that particular box, we pull that box
 out, we open the box, and we discuss only what is in
 THAT BOX. And then we close the box and put it away
 being very, very careful not to touch other boxes.
 Now women's brains are very, very different from
 men's brains. Women's brains are made up of a big

 and the car is connected to your job and your

Dad, Girls, and God: 15 Kids Were Asked About Their Thoughts On Marriage. These Answers Are Priceless When is it okay to kiss someone? The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, ther you should marry them and have kids with them It's the right thing to do. - Howard, age 8 The law says you have to be eighteen, so l wouldn't want to mess with that - Curt, age 7 When they're rich - Pam, age 7 What is the right age to get married? Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then. - Camille, age 10 No age is good to get married at. You got to be a fool to get married - Freddie, age 6 (very wise for his age) How can a stranger tell if two people are married? You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids Derrick, age 8 What do you think your mom and dad have in common? Both don't want any more kids. Lori, age 8 What do most people do on a date? Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough - Lynnette, age 8 (isn't she a treasure) On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. - Martin, age 10 What would you do on a first date that was turning sour? I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns. Craig, age 9 How do you decide who to marry? You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. - Alan, age 10 No person really decides before they grow up ho they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with - Kirsten, age 10 Is it better to be single or married? It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them - Anita, age 9 (bless you child) How would the world be different if people didn't get married? There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there? Kelvin, age 8 How would you make a marriage work? Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck. - Ricky, age 10 lolzandtrollz: The Answers Are Priceless
