“Too bad most insurance does not cover any type of massage or acupunture. Acupunture is about $125.00 per treatment and massage can vary but anywhere from $50.00 to $150.00 per session. Out of reach for most of us.”
“Men evolved to have low testosterone and erectile dysfunction as they get older”

“Tee hee. A good reminder that sometimes evolution isn't for a goal, just bodies wearing out. But menopause is different, I think. We don't just have a slow decline in estrogen with some fertility. Things actually turn off.”
“Life expectancy rarely was above age 50 for women so this must be a very recent change in evolution.
Upper Paleolithic 33
Bronze Age and Iron Age 26
Classical Greece 28
Classical Rome 28
At age 15, life expectancy an additional 37 years (total age 52).
Pre-Columbian North America 25–30
AND SO ON...”

“I think if that were really true, we wouldn't have evolved to have menopause.
As the other commenter suggests, life expectancy if you made it past childhood was much longer. People did live to be 60.”

“Life expectancy at birth is mostly a measure of death rates early in life.”
“Good luck getting men over 50 to wear condoms. I have been in a situation 4 times in the last three years and each time the guy refused and the entire dating/sex was immediately over for me (and him). It is NOT WORTH IT.”
“I work in a law office. I must have professional attire, shoes and handbags in order to stay employed so I can contribute to my 401k. I do not know of ANY women where I work who spend more than necessary for clothes and shoes. In fact, most women I work with would be happy in jeans and t-shirts but that is not the reality.”
“It is surprising how many people don't know that religious groups take federal money. You are right, it is quite simple. Do not accept federal funds and then you can make any rules you like.”

“Are any of you aware that Georgetown, the Catholic University that Ms. Fluke has waged war against gave the Obama superpack 1 million dollars ??? And on an average they support liberals 10 to 1 over conservative's and has had guest speakers such as Obama, John Kerry and Bill Clinton?? This is a large research institution, and has many financial backers, so it's not just federally funded.
If money was an issue for Ms. Fluke, I'm sure she could have gotton into a less expensive law school. I'm tired of people attacking the church and faith based institutions because they don't get what they think they deserve, your tax dollars are being spent on a lot of other things you should be mad about.”

“Be careful...I dont think you would be happy if all the "religious church's and schools" went away and closed their doors. You need to give credit where credit is due. These institutions help millions of people in need. Its a same to twist this into something like it has become.”

“What happened to the whole church state seperation? The more churches push their immoral agendas into public life, the more they should lose their tax-free status and government handouts.”
