Woodworking in different continents.

The difference between Amerian, European and Japanese (Asian) woodworkers is that the Japanese woodworkers use tools that cut on the pull, European woodworkers use tools that cut on the push and the American woodworkers use power tools.

The highest quality woodwork comes from the Japanese and the lowest from the Americans.

Why are there so few female leaders.

An interesting theory by Dr. Dave Owens is that people do not stand up in front of other people because they feel silly and are afraid to look bad. Therefore it is important to make people who stand up not feel bad.

It is a known fact that most women care deeply about how they look and would rather wear nice looking shoes that hurt them than comfortable shoes that look bad. For most men it's the other way around. Could this importance that women place on their looks, 100+ dollar haircuts, 500+ dollar dresses and makeup cabinets worth thousands be the biggest reason they are not as numerous in leadership positions as men?

Rape or not?

If someone goes into woman's bedroom, pretends to be her boyfriend and has sex with her, then when she finds out he's not her boyfriend, it becomes rape. But if someone meets a woman, pretends to be Brad Pitt, goes to her bedroom and has sex with her, then when she finds out he's not Brad Pitt, it does not become rape.
The falsehood in the later instance would not invalidate her consent. In other words, here are two lies, identical in their intent and in their result. One is a crime and the other, however deplorable is not.

Among many things from the book; Ill-Gotten Gains: Evasion, Blackmail, Fraud, and Kindred Puzzles of the Law.

It is an inconvenient truth that not all strippers use all their money for college funds so they can become sexy librarians.
