    1. Saw a thing on tv tonight and they say Men or 4 times more likey to be struck by lightin than Women. Anyone know the reason for that. The only reason I can think of is (Us Guys Are MORE ATTRACTIVE:eek:oooh:Yeah Right:wink:.Know what you all think.

    Could it be that men are more prone to brave the elements of Good Ol' Mother Nature than women? Most women probably stay inside during a lightning storm. Heck, I've heard golfers getting killed during lightning storms. Now that's way to much dedication to the sport. GET OUT OF THERE! PLEASE!:crazy:

    imho men are outdoors more, hunting, fishing ,golfing,job related. of course it could be again the nag factor. they would rather be stuck by lighting than listen to the nag,nag,nag. btw. this is no reflection of m wife. she is a non nagger.

    Wouldn't it just be easier to say that men are just not smart enough to know when to come in out of the rain?!LOL:smile2::smile2:

    I'm gonna go with that theory!:wink:

    Now Sheila, be careful, Men are sensitive you know :big_smile:

    My first wife always said, when I was with her "Time stood still"

    after our divorce I found out it was because I was so UGLY

    " I could stop a clock"

    Seriously I think the outdoors thing is the determining factor about more men getting stricken

    If it even looks like it might rain in the next few days, my wife won't go out. She thinks I'm stupid for hunting in the rain.

    I have a sneaking suspicion it has to do with cussing/taking the Lord's name in vain. I'm surprised there's a Naval vessel anywhere with anyone still alive.
