Quote of the Day (Dave Barry, on the ‘Guy Brain’)

“The guy brain is not well-suited to grasping relationships. But it’s good at analyzing and solving mechanical problems. For example, if a couple owns a house, and they want to repaint it so they can sell it, it will probably be the guy who will take charge of this project. He will methodically take the necessary measurements, calculate the total surface area, and determine the per-gallon coverage capacity of the paint; then, using his natural analytical and mathematical skills, he will apply himself to the problem of figuring out a good excuse not to paint the house.”—Dave Barry, “Tips for Women: How to Have a Relationship with a Guy,” from Dave Barry’s Complete Guide to Guys (1995)
