What is wrong with this picture?


Last week I posted some pictures of men who were not practicing good safety in regards to heights. Today I'm going to post just one picture of a man on terra firma, to test your powers of observation.

As we move through later life, we need to keep ourselves occupied with small projects, as exemplified by guy in the picture below. But we must make sure we are working safely. See if you can spot anything he's doing wrong.

Chainsaw Fail

I know, I saw it right away too — no safety glasses or hearing protection! What is he thinking?!

Oh, and I caught something else really important — he’s not wearing gloves!

I might be getting up in years, but I am still sharp as a needle. How about you?

Why Women Live Longer than Men, Take 5


After doing four posts with pictures that show why women live longer than men, I should have known that it would be only a matter of time until more pictures surfaced. And surface they did! I got an e-mail last week with many pictures that weren't part of the ones I had published. In fact, there are enough for two posts! Today's post is the first of the two. These pictures all have something to do with men and their lack of fear (read: sense?) about height and safety.

Not all heights are a problem, and yet falling is still not a good idea, as in this one....

There are other "scaffolds" that could be just a precarious.

Why Women Live Longer than Men, take 4


picture of man jumping off a cliff

One Sunday a month Becka and I go to a local nursing home to take part in the weekly service that various people from our church hold for the residents. I'm always struck by how many more old women there are than old men. Statics worldwide confirm that, for whatever reason, women do indeed live longer than men. There are all sorts of theories out there, from genetics to levels of risky activities. Whatever the reason(s), in nursing homes and other places where older people are in the majority, there are usually more older women than older men.

Almost seven years ago, I did a post called Why Women Live Longer than Men that featured some funny pictures of men doing some insanely dangerous things in the workplace and in other settings. Several of the pictures showed me driving some work vehicles, and I assure you, I was far safer than everything around me was! Since that post I've come across more pictures that could help explain why men die younger than women do. About two years after that I did a second post called Why Women Live Longer than Men, take 2, with even more pictures that show why that phenomenon is so. Two years ago I did a third installment called Why Women Live Longer than Men, take 3.

One of the most common unsafe practices of us men is the bad usage of ladders. Here are some pictures that are amazing.

Do We See Eye to Eye?


Since Valentine's Day is next week, I thought I'd do a post with some different aspects on how men and women see things differently.

On Monday of this week, both my second semester French students and second semester German students had a test that included the names of items of clothing and of colors. I enjoyed sharing with them a picture I had seen a while back on how women and men perceive colors differently. I don't endorse everything on the site this came from, but this one was worth sharing.

Color Names for Girls and Guys

I also saw another picture that brought a smile to my face.

Now on to three jokes that highlight how males and females don't always see eye to eye.

Why Women Live Longer than Men, take 3


This week's iv was all ready to post this morning ... until I received an e-mail last evening from one of my readers. When I saw it, I just knew this had to be this week's iv.

I've done two other posts on Why Women Live Longer than Men and will share the links to them at the end of this post so that you can find them more easily, if you're so inclined.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I'll not make much commentary on these pictures.

The first several are home handymen using ladders.
