Men no like thinky[^]

Seems reasonable to me.
Quote:
So, sat in a room, with nothing to do for 15 minutes but press a button that they knew would administer an electric shock, 12 out of 18 men pressed it and six out of 24 women. These people intentionally gave themselves an electric shock. An electric shock.

Those who shocked themselves, did so an average of 1.47 times during the 15 minute period. Except for one maverick. Who did it 190 times.

Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
