Only a year? What do they spend the rest of the time doing?

Men spend a year staring at women - Telegraph

The average man will spend almost 43 minutes a day staring at 10 different women.
That adds up to 259 hours - almost 11 days - each year, making a total 11 months and 11 days between the ages of 18 and 50.
But researchers found that the males of the species are not the only ones admiring the opposite sex as women sneak a peek at six men for just over 20 minutes a day, on average.
That adds up to almost six months spent admiring men from afar between the ages of 18 and 50.


What's with this "between 18 and 50" business, anyway? So far as I can remember, I started staring at women (OK, girls at that time) when I was about 7, and am now well beyond 50 and have no plans to stop...

Hear! Hear! I'm 64 years old and I still look. In fact I have a broader range to look at. I look at the young ones out of habit not hope, and the older ones out of hope that they'll become a habit. Of course with my luck it turns out her order doesn't wear habits anymore.

My aunt has a great turn of phrase for whenever she spots my uncle lingering a little too long over some shapely legs: "It doesn't matter where he gets his appetite so long as he eats at home".

I use the same philosophy to justify my ogling.

Incidentally I'm sure that my ogling time has increased since leaving England - it may have something to do with the fact that I am now living in a country where one can wear sunglasses more frequently than one can in the UK!).

Not even an hour? Seems low. Statistics can be misleading 'average man' would include gays, visually impaired, and prisoners. Maybe that explains it.

When a man stops looking, he is either Gay or dead. This past time is the natural order of their composition. As soon as women accept this, the better off they are.

I not only stare at women, I worship them. I pray to them, religiously. They are Goddesses, every one.
