Couldn't they just try wooing more ladies and being nice to their kids? Might make them realise it isn't worth killing anyones kids for any reason.

Love your stuff

talkytalk~ good advice and thx for the compliment and for stopping by!

Yeah, but men do spend time shopping. Survivival gear, guns, knives, explosives, combat gear...

Actually, in all seriousness, you have a point there:

Cost to go on a shopping binge in the local mall: Maybe a couple of thousand dollars.

Cost to go on a macho binge in a middle eastern country: $300,000,000,000 and counting.

And even when women get aggressive (and I've been there a couple of times when they have) maybe they get the .22 out and pop off a couple of rabbits or tread upon some snails that are helping themselves to lunch in fair lady's vegetable garden. Then the moment of aggression is past and the sunny disposition returns. My personal experience is that women don't stay aggressive or feel the urge to conquer a foreign country, drop tons of bombs and kill thousands of people (though to be honest I still can name a lot of male potential Presidential candidates who I'd much rather support than Hillary).

not a chance. They would just shop for more lethal weapons and faster vehicles. lol

The other day I surprised a saleswoman when she asked if she could be of assistance. My response, "A doughmaker 1 pound loaf pan." How is that for know what you want. We did talk about the differences between hunters and gatherers.

I bake my own bread and needed another loaf pan. They are really great.

I like what Chris Rock suggested - that bullets should just cost $5000. That way we'd have a whole lot less bullets around.

Vickie, liked your Chris Rock citation. The only problem is that only the rich would have bullets. They are showing that they would use them in war. They would hire an army to use them.

Karen, I will be baking bread late next week. I hope there is a strong breeze blowing your way to get that wonderful aroma. lol
