Came across an article in our largest newspaper that had a very enticing title of “Brit women ashamed to run (because of) sweating” (translation mine).
The article was about a study in the UK about women/girls and sports. I think it was about this campaign.
I won’t go too deep into the fact that I assume in many countries/cultures overweight women/men don’t want to jog publicly, at least not until they have lost some of that weight.
But that’s not my point for the post today.
I thought I’d delve into the world of some “well-established truths” that we all know and maybe you readers can comment on them?
Let’s start with these five established truths:
1. “British women don’t want to jog in public and/or they don’t want to sweat in public”
2. Women (I suppose regardless of age, country or nationality) are bad drivers
So hand up if you are a good driver?
3. (All) women are envious of each other
So ladies – used a lot of time today to envy other women?
4. All men think about sex all the time
It must be pretty crowded in those pipeline-brains..
5. Pipeline brains versus funnel cake brains
Tried to look for this thing in English, but it seems this is a Finnish concept (?): men have “pipeline brains” and women have “funnel cake brains”.
The assumption (well, let’s just say it, well-known fact of course) is that pipeline brains are methodical, analytical, think straight without emotions.
OR monomaniacal, can only think about one issue (and we have already established earlier that that’d be sex!), can concentrate/do only one thing at a time.
The funnel cake brain user is emotional, illogical and rambling.
OR can concentrate on many things at the same time, can multitask, can think in complex ways.
So if you want to stop being an emotional rambler, just twist those curls into a pipe and you’re all settled! Right?
Any thoughts on these well-known and widespread truths? Please share them in comments!
Sorry to disappoint you, we have it in libraries, private homes, book stores, convenient stores.. we are a shameless nation flaunting a pant-less duck everywhere!!
