    That when we look like we're cumming we're often nowhere near. Similarly, we could be having multiples but look like nothing much is happening

    Trousers! Yes! Something men don't realise, perhaps, because trouser pockets are something that they have always known to be adequate and comfortable. Not the case with girls' trouser pockets. Ohh nooo. Girls' clothes have one of two things: either ridiculously shallow pockets that you can't even fit your phone in, or those nasty fake pockets that are just an unnecessary flap which is sewn up. I would imagine that trousers are designed this way so that shops can make more money from girls buying handbags.

    This is turning into a rant about why it sucks to be a girl!

    But yes, trouser pockets is something that bugs me at least. Any other girls find they have this problem?

    YES! And then you have to wriggle around trying to get things out of your abnormally tiny pockets. Fake pockets are the worst. If you're not functional, why are you there?

    Curiosity is healthy, however what I would say is bad is that curiosity seems to be your driving force 99% of the time (from what you have said) rather than the hobby itself, meaning you either are very passive or have not much of an idea on what you like and why you like it.
    Maybe because things we start when we're 12 aren't the things we want when we're 17? You grow up, you change your mind about things. The fact that I've got a lot of hobbies doesn't change the fact that I have them.

    Exactly. It is a nightmare. Sometimes I just want to go out to the shop without having to worry about taking a separate bag!

    That not all women want to stay at home and have babies. When I've told some guys that I never want kids they seem to more a lot more surprised than when you say it to another girl.

    True, but most hobbies mature with you. Think how a 12 year old plays tennis compared to a 17 year old, thus it is still odd to swap so readily

    Lots of people change hobbies, it's not actually that uncommon. It's not like I change every 6 months or something, it's usually after a few years or so. Lots of people get fed up with things after, say, 4 years of doing it.

    I dunno, the typical 'girl' hobbies like ballet and horse-riding aren't as readily accepted as a teenager/young adult. Then you're just a weirdo to most people, I expect.

    Wow, how did I not notice this awful innuendo when I was wrote that??

    I meant the worm that lives in the wall with a scarf on! haha.
    LOL!

    Hmmm...from my experience, most things to do with periods guys are pretty much oblivious about. Also, my guy friends refuse to accept that girls poo? :confused: Obviously they know that we do but I think they think we **** rainbows or something. They try to gross us out by warning us not to use the toilet because they've just been in there or talk about the satisfaction of having a big poo as though we have never experienced it!

    Period pains. But the worst is period pain in the first couple of days when you need a poo. It's SO SO painful and when you go to the toilet and do it it's just...gross. I'll leave it there :p: Sorry, this post has ended up being about poo!

    I didn't know that guys could suck their balls into themselves? That's odd!

    Lols no! I used to think it was a conspiracy too till my auntie (a seamstress) told me your meant to undo the stitching with that fork thing in sewing kits.

    It's apparently there because girls move their hips more than men so the stress on the trouser is at the side. Sewing it up means we don't add additional stress to our sides, by reaching in for stuff and keeping heavy objects there.

    There you go some insider knowledge - don't tell anyone else though guys

    That's news to me. I have never heard of people doing that. Either they stick with it or are forced to changed due to a change in circumstances.

    Strange, as I don't think any guy would not like their gf to say "I do ballet" Also they could keep the theme of dancing and move from ballet onto other forms eg. salsa, ballroom etc. It is all dancing and hell, have you seen how good dancers look?!

    Hmm, well there you go! Sometimes there are literally no pockets there though, just those flaps that look like pockets. That's still annoying :-P I will be checking my jeans for unpickable pockets in the future though! ^-^

    Going back to the topic of disgusting loos and urinal etiquette, the loos at Wembly are horrid at half time. If all the urinals are full then many people just wee into the sinks. :eek:

    If you think that's weird, you should learn about just where exactly drag queens put their penis when they do 'tucking'.

    I can't. Used to be able to but since I finished puberty it's just not possible.

    I asked her about this she said its probably because things like jeggins would look weird without an outline of a pocket: "imagine if barbie suddenly had a bellybutton" < the point she actually gave as evidence. Plus imagine if they were gone you'd think you got faulty jeans cos they've been designed like that for so long.

    I checked it on Wikipedia and it said the same thing about the pockets being the area that have the biggest stress. The cheaper the jeans the more likely the pockets aren't real cos they completely remove the stress factor so the jeans last longer.

    It makes sense when you know why.

    I don't wear jeggings though - or skinny jeans. In fact this is the exact reason why I always buy baggy/"boyfriend" fit, but even the pockets on those are rubbish. It makes sense though. A lot of sense. There must be a market for a design of women's trousers with real pockets!
