“I find that permanent colour with ammonia seems to ruin many women's hair making it look "old lady" no matter what colour it is. Mine went like straw after I used it. They are coming out with no ammonia permanent haircolour now which leaves it in much better condition than the old style dyes.”

“I don't get your comment about bottom of the barrel schools, all schools in the province receive the same per capita spending, it ain't like the U.S. with good school districts and bad. What people call "bottom of the barrel" usually refers to having to attend schools with kids that live in social housing and such. Education is pretty consistent across the province. Often times in schools located in poorer areas you will even find better teachers - the ones that want to make a difference.”

Avatar22 on Mar 15, 2013 at 18:02:11

“Lucy, whether you agree with the characterization or not is hardly the point - it is a fact that a school's test scores have a huge impact on housing prices. The local school district in my area is one of the worst performing in the City, hence the reason why we don't command nearly the same prices as other nearby and otherwise comparable areas. In a higher test score district that $730k semi might go for $900k”

“Not just their personal stench but I can't stand visiting senior homes where they have smoked for many years inside the house, the stink is in the carpet and the paint in the walls. I get a migraine within 15 minutes.

What will cause everyone to stop eventually is that it becomes associated with being old and slovenly - young people don't see it as a "cool" habit but one that reminds you of seniors playing Bingo and whatnot. It's the same as chewing tobacco - eventually people avoid you.”

“ED rates are pretty high even among younger men. The problem is that almost all men will lie about it so it's one of those things were you won't found out the truth. For e.g. if you take somebody who smoked since they were 18 by age 40 pretty well 100% would have ED but if you asked them they would deny it to the heavens - it's always the other guy, never them with a problem.”

wanderer12 on Feb 24, 2013 at 18:45:58

“Yes of course. All men will lie about it.  It is all a conspiracy. But of course if all men lie about it we need to believe you as the emprical evidence would be lacking.... Note who would believe any person that claims that all of any groups do ...... Or if your psuedonym is correct the view of a woman on mens health. Now me I would not presume to make statements about women's health or reproductive systems as I simply do not have the data. ED is a disease and not anywhere near as prevalent as the medical industrial complex would have us believe. But of course we should depend on the reports from an industry who make billions off of these drugs. And who run effective propaganda campaigns. If guys did not have a problem they certainly would be looking down after being bombarded by the ad campaigns. Or it could all be to sell something. But that never happens in our valuless society where Big Pharma has taken the place of the corner heroin pusher.”

“When Viagra first came on the market you would be hard pressed to find a single man who admitted he had a problem when the numbers are similar to 40% at 40, 50% at 50 etc. etc. I find it interesting that online every single man no matter what age, is totally virile, never has any problem ever, and has noticed zero effects of aging on him personally. That only happens to women - okay I get it.”

“Yep. I am a physician assistant in primary care. At least 60-70% of my male patients over 40 are on Viagra or Cialis, probably higher.”

“I think you are confusing sex drive with sexual function. If you don't have the urge, it doesn't matter what your physical problems may be. If you are and older male and have a strong sex drive, then luckily, sometimes the challenges of the body can be dealt with thanks to science. Nothing wrong with that. If you disagree about older woman and libido, that is another topic. Hope you are finding happiness.”

“I never said any of that. In fact, I never would have even bothered to comment on this thread except for the fact that men were being generalized and bad mouthed about how we sometimes date younger women because we're controlling or otherwise flawed somehow. I'm simply presenting another view because frankly I'm sick of the male bashing so I push back. Also you numbers for men are wildly inflated.  It's more like this: 2% reported first experiencing ED before age 404% reported first experiencing ED between ages 40 to 4926% reported first experiencing ED between ages 50 to 5940% reported first experiencing ED between ages 60 to 69 Cite:  http://www.webmd.com/erectile-dysfunction/news/20030804/erectile-dysfunction-common-with-age ”

“The number one risk factor is actually age, the risk starts around 2 to 3 percent at age 65 and doubles every 5. By age 85 it's almost 45 percent by 90 it's 90. I really don't get these articles that imply that you can prevent it. The only way I know of is to die of something else. I actually have such a fear of dying of this that I will stop getting any cancer testing by age 65. At least with cancer you can have assisted suicide available to you as an option.”

“You've managed to develop your own special form of dementia -- your made up prevalence 'facts' are just totally nuts.

About one third of people in their nineties have some form of cognitive impairment, and more likely than not, a good portion is due to passivity: watching telly, being overweight, no exercise, smoking cigarets, eating lots of sugar. Plus thinking the way you are thinking. In other words, not using your mind for anything except to worry.

Stop trying to scare everyone else. You have an anxiety disorder. Seek treatment, it can be helped.”

“Well that sounds like a wonderful way to show respect for a man that almost single-handedly raised both me and my sister. He has already said he will *NEVER* go into a retirement home, but hey, he's just an old guy, who has use for them, right? Just dump him off someplace where he's out of the way and we don't have to think about him anymore, just visit once a year, right?

I am *SO* thankful I'm not *YOUR* parent. Then again, if I were, and you said something like that about me, the local animal shelter would be thrilled when I died, because they'd get all the money that would have been your inheritance.”

“Sorry that sort of argument is very selfish, wanting to see someone lose all dignity so that you can learn a lesson, I just don't get it. I also cannot stand euphemisms like unpacking gifts to describe watching somebody suffer the worst possible death there is, even worse than terminal cancer. Your mother like many older women is a martyr, they like to suffer, it gives them some sort of purpose. I would wish that my partner would help me with a nice shot of Nembutal, that would be the best possible gift.”

“Dementia theoretically should skyrocket after 70. We've spiked the median life span in the last 100 years by a third. There is a provocative talk that was done at TED in recent years that spoke of mental health being the THE health crisis by 2025 due to the extended life span of people despite no means to really fight the deterioration of brain function by comparison.”
