Are all men from Mars?

Updated on March 6, 2016


A weird title, but sometimes it really does seem like men are from another planet. There's no doubt that men and women are wired differently.


It's interesting to learn that both males and females are born with a "female brain", but by the eighth week a rush of testosterone burns the "communication centres" of the brain leaving it almost empty, inciting growth in parts that control agression and sex. Resulting in girls interested in caring games and communication, while boys prefer more rough and tumble type games.

Men, What Makes them Tick?

Men can often be seen as being more hands on and aggressive, this is because men seek to dominate physically, due to larger sex and aggression centres in the brain. Men don't have the same emotional expression as women, due to the male brain not being connectd to the 'amygdala' part of the brain. Unlike females who show emotional expression naturally.

To put it bluntly, they prefer things to be simple, uncomplicated. Otherwise they become confused.

Funny Quotes About Men

"There are easier things in life than trying to find a nice nailing jelly to a tree for example".

"Men are like pumpkins. It seems like the good ones are either taken or they've had everything scraped our out of their heads with a spoon".

"When women are depressed, they eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking".

"Boys will be boys, and so will a lot of middle aged men".

"If men are from Mars can't NASA send them back?"

"Boobs are proof that men can focus on two things at once".

Not going into too much detail, but behaviour and habits have had females baffled for centuries. Myself included. As humans we all do certain things on a daily basis, but somethings you just think, why? Strange habits like using a water bowl in the bath to flush the toilet; washing and drying the recyling; and not forgetting the collection of plastic bottles, kept in the house and car. I'm sure every woman has her own experience to share. Men can't help being men, and the planet and future of the human race wouldn't survive without them. (Or could it?)
