Yes, mostly.

Fabulous, foxy, female. AND I have a third eye; so do you want to know the color of all three or just the pair on either side of my nose?

Thank you everybody. Ladies win. The purpose of this was :<BR>First: There are some studies, that show that women spend more time on the web, and this can be interesting if you have a web site, or is doing some e-business.<BR>Second :The OP was posted in a early european hour, and the first answers are from europeans, and the second group mostly Americans. I wanted to test how Europeans and Americans respond to simple things, and the conclusions are very interesting.<BR>Once again thank you for your help.<BR>By the way...I'm in Europe.<BR><BR>

A fascinating sociological study. You really should get an award for your penetrating insights.

What strange conclusions you have drawn from this "survey". My conclusion would simply be that women are more likely to answer stupid posts like this one than men.

Mimosa May 23rd, 2002 02:18 PM

The reason more women are on the web is because the men are watching ballgames.

Xxx said: &lt;What strange conclusions you have drawn from this "survey".&gt;<BR><BR>What concusions? The only ones I saw were that the E were probably the ones answering while most of America slept, and that most likely the Americans were the ones posting during daylight hours in the Americas. Not so strange.

Barzelletta, didn't you read the reply? The orginal poster came back to indicate that this survey agreed with the theory that most people on the web were women. That's the conclusion I was referring to, which is clearly a stupid conclusion.

to this last posts. The conclusion was (and if you hang out on this forum for a while, you understand what I'm saying), that when facing a simple questions so simple as : Gender ? in the "european hours" you get simple valid answers, while on "America" hours, most are stupid answers, like this "California has 16 gender codes. The US has 17. I guess the extra one is for politicians!"..or "I have brown hair.And in the event someone starts a thread on eye color--my eyes are blue/green."<BR><BR>So, a completely random American, when asked this very elementar question...can't answer.<BR>This, is not a "profund study", this is just a sample, but it is very demonstrative.<BR>So once again thank you.<BR>One last thing. Jim...are you locked inside a closet ? you don't seem to know yet if you're a boy or a girl...maybe you got some doubts about it.<BR><BR>

There's no evidence that the earliest posters were from Europe...... Conclusion could also be drawn that more females are on the net lat night/early morning......

Gina..are you in europe ?

Jim May 24th, 2002 05:09 AM

To [email protected],<BR>If you're too stupid to know Jim is a male name, I'll spell it out for you. I'm not a "boy" or a "girl", I'm a man.

pv May 24th, 2002 05:26 AM

I replied almost 3 hours after the first post, so not sure if I'm considered European or American.<BR>I can assure you, I'm a very, very long away from the America's and even further away from Europe.<BR>All this survey suggests, is that a number of us, have nothing else better to do, at the moment. And we like checking out travel boards and I'll now go and do something more useful. ciao
