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.

Who needs expensive, store-bought scaffolding?!

It's a good thing this guy's thin. I just hope he's thin enough....

Who needs an expensive car rack like the mechanics use in garages?!

The next two images show men doing some window washing. Each image has two parts. The upper part of each picture looks fairly innocent, though still potentially dangerous. But the bottom parts give a clearer view of the real situation in each case. Oh my!

I'll end with some men who have it made in the shade.

I guess "dumb blonde" jokes might pale in comparison. 🙄

For those who can't get enough of this stuff, my two other posts like this are Why Women Live Longer than Men and Why Women Live Longer than Men, take 2. I look forward to your comments!

    Personally, if I had to take some of the risks these guys took, I would leave the windows unwashed and unpainted.

    All I can say is, “What were they thinking?!?” They look like the pictures what would accompany the Darwin Awards where they self-select themselves out of the gene pool by putting themselves in life-threatening situations.

    I had two reactions to this. The first was to laugh, and the second was to decide that my four-month-old son will NEVER see this! 😉

    I feel that in the first picture that guy doesn’t have near enough light to do the job correctly. The second picture, the fellow shouldn’t be stretching like that – totally non-ergonomic. The last picture they need a larger backhoe – it only comfortably covers four men….

    I am sorry to admit my husband could have a photo along with these men. He said we didn’t need an extension ladder. We didn’t need to spend the money. Until I found him repairing a small leak on our trailer roof using an antique wooden stepladder (used for artsy shelving, NOT climbing) that was folded tightly (for maximum height) that was sitting precariously on top of stacked concrete blocks! He was on the very top of the ladder ( you know, the one that usually has a sign saying “no standing”) on his tip-toes reaching as far as he could, holding onto the edge of the roof for balance. We got an extension ladder the next day!

    I L.O.V.E. these posts. I reference the ‘why women live longer than men’ series regularly when debating with young male friends… 😉
