My wife tolerates the hobby. The only bit she really, really, really struggled to comprehend whatsoever was the cleaning with retr0brite I was doing. I think her phrase was "complete waste of time".

I now have her old Amiga 500+, donated kindly to me by her father . My youngest son wants to play games on it. The oldest is happy with Mario Kart on the Weii. Ahh, brilliant: she's surrounded by geeks

I love vroom6sri's quote: "No matter what your interests are, you can't be "sad" if you're happy." Superb

Oh, and I strongly recommend a loft conversion. We strengthened the floor, put in a decent(ish) wooden collapsable ladder, two velux windows, then plasterboarded and skimmed the thing. It's my domain...

In fact she encouraged me recently to buy a NeoGeo because "it would make me happy". So I feel that's quite a good result really
you have a real wife
wifes from Japan and wifes from arab countries are the best in the world
they were made to be wife,they were made to don't argue with her husband and they were made to make her husband happy

wifes from the occidental world are like snakes,they were made to be unhappy all the time and make her husbands unhappy , waste money on stupid things all the time,
also they were made to cheat and only thing that make them happy is the money

You know why those women are like that. Their countries history will tell you why. Its women evolved over the centuries to be like that, not their choosing. Asume the worst that man can do to women and muxh more worst besides. The result is your prefered women, it seems.

Well what did you expect when a thread like this was started

I feel sorry for Cammy, the Australian Princess/Goddess/Master of all Females etc etc or any other female having to read some of these posts

Can you believe being described as

I'm surprised Cammy hasn't gone on the offensive with a comment like that

@pubzombie
Watch out for cammy, she'll strike you down with a bolt of lightening and make you eat your words

that comment was actually about how sexless and the same i see us all here really... honest.....

it comes from a few years ago when i was doing some research with military cadets.. we set up a LAN and had female vs male cadets play FPS games like Rainbow Six Vegas. the result was that women work better in teams on team games and beat the guys on a six to four game ratio.
when i asked the male cadets why they thought they had been beaten so many times by women teams they replied 'sir what women sir...... they are men with boobs..... sir'
i gues the only way some chaps can accept women may be better than them is to pretend they are men..
the guys performed better in groups of two or on individual games

anyhow - drink enough beer and we can all be men with boobies
