Why women make better suicide bombers

Postby Wind In My Hair » Wed, 05 Oct 2005 12:27 pm

interesting commentary in today's straits times about the rising numbers of women suicide bombers and how they are more committed and reliable than the men. according to the journalist, it boils down to two factors:

- women's nurturing side means that once they are convinced that their actions will benefit their family, are more determined to go through with it

- their desire to prove that they are as worthy as the men, in a culture where women's place is still in the home, makes them more deliberately ruthless

so there you are. women, as usual, are better at the job! :D

I concur!
Have you heard of the saying, "A woman has to be twice as good as a man to be considered just as good as one?"

I simply agree with that.

And men don't have asses?

Funny, very funny.
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

Under the burkha. Room for thousands of pounds of explosives and a couple of small armoured track vehicles as well.

According to Citizen Deek she doesn't need a burka. I'm with you SE. Fanatisism is not partial to either sex. It gets in bed with the poor and ignorant regardless.

Cool again... I'm into 'older' women... especially those that think velcro sneakers are cute.

You must know from my earlier posts that I would NEVER get on the back of that boss hog of yours. So, alas, there our relationship must meet it's thorny end.

It's only an infantile substitute for the real "boss hog" anyway. Which of course, has totally different ride characteristics... not to mention that you don't get onto the back of it... and is subject to an entirely different set of dangers.
