    I find it incredible that, in this day and age, there are still Neanderthals walking about, treating women like objects.

    Hey, I will readily admit that I like seeing a nice ass walk by, but when I'm talking with a woman I am first and foremost talking to a person, with a brain, and most of them use it quite well.

    Well... having a discussion is one thing. I see people with both main us parties who think they should keep browbeating everyone around them with their political views though; get a few of them bickering and this could go on for months, rapidly turn into a unproductive pain in the ass for everyone around them.
