    Men's Health Magazine: My passport to the unspoken book of rules

    Men's Health.
    An outstanding publication, dedicated to health, nutrition, excercise and lifestyle.
    As a well as more than a few amusing articles depicting the female psyche.
    Is it me, I can't be the only woman that finds this magazine intruiging.
    I had no idea there was so much to learn!

    Kirke, don't believe it. Men's Health is dare I say worse than Cosmo. If you want real insight into men's psyche, temper the Men's Health with Cargo --it's a little more grounded. But then again, Carmen Electra isn't on my top 5 babes list, so maybe it's me.

    Previous IEEE subscriber here. Of course....that's like saying "I watched an action movie without specifying which one"....there are sooooo many IEEE publications that you have to specify which ones. Of course, I was a Computer Engineering grad student when I subscribed, so obviously mine were related to Computer Engineering. I'm guessing they have some bioengineering ones that you subscribe to?

    Cargo? hmmmm........
    Men's Health had an article in the current issue that was based on a survey of 2000 Cosmo readers!
    How funny you should mention that!

    My GF likes FHM and Maxim...

    As for getting insight into men's psyche, forget it! We're about as easy for women to figure out as it is for men to figure out women...

    Nah... we're easier than an Etch-A-Sketch. Don't like what you see? Shake us up, and you've got a blank slate to work with.

    Men can be understood by reference to the five basic life categories: toys; meat; beer; not doing the laundry; and only really liking chocolate chip cookies when they're homemade.

    umm - did you forget sex? and what is up with guys not doing laundry. It takes me like 1 minute to throw everything in my washer and put it on regular and push the nozzle, then toss it in the dryer 2 hours later.

    I would have thought sex fell under toys and beer.

    He's married, that erases sex from his existence forever . I don't even eat meat or drink beer... I'll substitute sex and liquor in those categories, and it'll be close...

    I thought it was
    1)toys
    2)beer
    3)food
    4)sex
    5)recliner

    Now for the win, it's sex on the recliner,with beer and pizza on the endtable next to it, while assembling a lego mindstorms creation.

    "Married with Children" was not a documentary.

    Plus, I've posted picture of my sons, so that's at least twice.

    hey I do my own laundry -- and prefer doing it instead of trusting the sig other, who inevitably messes something up. Like drying something that has to be hung, etc etc. What can I say, I'm a little metro....

    What the hell has to be hung instead of dried? Maybe Slvoid should sell you his glitter lotion.

    Excuse me, I have to go club dinner now.

    Yeah, but you don't stand back and average time. That's hindsight after the fact. The only time that matters is right now. And in the moment, sex wins all the time! Here's my list:

    1. sex
    2. toys
    3. liquor
    4<->5. food <--> recliner (this is the only one i'm wishy-washy over)

Alternatively, a broken microwave will work.
    I umm, built my own lego contraptions to the point where I diagrammed out my own instructions and considered sending them in to Lego. Yeah, I'm that kind of geek. Aren't you jealous.

    I don't even understand guys and I present as one!

    Cosmo is an interesting magazine, too much about having sex though, never really cared for mens magazines for the content, FHM and Maxis, playboy, big deal, they have scantly clad woman... oh hooo!

    My favorite is hot vw's and vw trends...
    Just your average club rider... :)
