    According to this article men waste a whole year of their life looking at women we will probably never even talk to. I therefore demand that women must dress down their appearance to stop me from wasting my life. :yes:

    "The average man will spend almost 43 minutes a day staring at 10 different women.

    That adds up to 259 hours - almost 11 days - each year, making a total 11 months and 11 days between the ages of 18 and 50.
    ut researchers found that the males of the species are not the only ones admiring the opposite sex as women sneak a peek at six men for just over 20 minutes a day, on average.

    That adds up to almost six months spent admiring men from afar between the ages of 18 and 50.

    Mark Ireland, spokesman for Kodak Lens Vision Centres, which carried out the poll, said: "Men are renowned for looking at women but it's interesting to find out exactly how long they spend eyeing girls up.
    "A year of their life is a long time to spend with their eyes fixed on the opposite sex."

    Wait, are you insinuating my boyfriend looks at other women? Frankly, I'm shocked and disgusted! If he respected me, he would do no such thing. I mean, I know for a fact that he doesn't masturbate, he respects me too much and if we're apart, he has no sexual yearnings apart from me. If I ever found out that my boyfriend looked at other women and even thought about another women, it would be the end between him and I.

    Compared to how much time we must waste on so many other things, this seems pretty much negligible. :pierre:

    If this includes staring at your girlfriend because you think she looks cute when she sleeps. (Maybe creepy behaviour but we've all done it)

    Then it'll be like 5 years of my life.

    Does the mean nothing to people nowadays?

    For the record, I've argued against those with the anti-porn stance and those who claim that their partner never thinks or looks about other women.

    'Bad Science' has made me mistrust pretty much any statistics-based story you read in the newspaper. I suspect this is ********.
