    Life's Minor Conundrums

    If you're not supposed to scratch a mosquito bite then why does it feel good to do so?

    Why does food that's bad for you taste good?

      It's just part of the mosquito's evil plan

      In human evolutionary history, starvation was one of our greatest enemies. Now obesity is the greater danger.

      Many of the foods that taste good have lots of sugar and fat in them, and have lots of calories. They would have been a boon in leaner times, now they're a curse.

          If a woman wears a revealing top, are you supposed to look? And if so, for how long before it becomes weird?

            lol...I'm a woman and have wondered this same thing. I mean, when a woman wears something to WORK with half her titties hanging out and she is NOT at a bar, just exactly wth does she think men are going to look at? She knows...believe me, I don't give a damn what she may say or pretend, she's wanting somebody to look.

          OK, this was meant to be rhetorical. Stop taking the fun out of it.

                getting them good and scratched up and then putting alcohol on it feels goooood.

              i think the weirdness is caused by the idea that the guy is imagining something further, in detail.

              eyes just being drawn to tits and thinking "looks nice lol" but then brain is occupied with conversation or other thoughts, so it's a passing admiration, that doesn't give off weird vibes.

              feeling like you're playing a part in someone's silent mental fantasy is what feels weird.

                I also find it weird, personally, that women sometimes choose to wear revealing tops showing cleavage (significant cleavage sometimes) and appear to expect men (or women) not to look. WTF??? Then cover that up if you don't want people looking, number 1, number 2 - I DO NOT want to see cleavage any place I go shop at.

              You Are Allowed To Look As Long As You Want.......BUT......When It Gets To The Point Where

              You Have "Drool" Dribbling From The Edges Of Your Mouth.......THEN.... It Becomes "Weird".......

                An acquaintance tried to give me some hippie pants for xmas.. before I even saw them she told me the fabric was horrible, not what she'd expected and that it was fine if I preferred she just send them back. The fabric WAS horrible. So were the colours, and everything else. So I agreed she could send them back.

                If she hadn't prefaced giving them to me with telling me they were horrible, I would have accepted them and said thank you. But having given me the choice, it felt too much of an obvious lie to say.. "no, no they're good. I disagree with you. the fabric is fine". I would have felt like she could tell ..But ever since then I've wondered if that was what I was really meant to do.

                What would everyone else have done?

                  Sometimes it's good just to accept gifts that you don't really like and pretend that you like them. It's a matter of gauging how someone is going to respond.

                  What contact have you had with her since?

                    I would have been honest about it as well. But probably tried to break it to her I really appreciated the gesture/effort

                    I suppose it depends on how awful the fabric really was.

                    I would probably have just kept them though. I know I'm awful to buy gifts for because I don't generally want things that I don't already have, so if someone tries I just thank them and then probably forget about the weird thing they gave me.

                      but she'd said how horrible they were! i could have lied and said thanks if she hadn't said that.. but to specifically say they were okay, contradicting her own opinion, i would have felt so insincere : (
