It reminded me of this video - I wish!!!
It also led onto and argument with a friend of mine (female as you might well guess when you read it). I speculated that for evolutionary reasons it is better for men to have very bad health for a short period of time, rather than something less bad for longer - if you are out hunting dangerous animals you don't want to be below par at all - so you just take a few days off. Whereas women can gather berries whilst under the weather.
This was not well received and it was suggested that if men had to get up and get the children breakfast they wouldn't succumb either (it really didn't help when I pointed out that my 17 year old had been shopping and cooking for me).
The funny thing is that although I was sympathetic to the idea as I have written this I have discovered the following article which suggests that there may be something to it - and just as I was getting excited this one which probably debunked the first (well, I'm not well enough to read all that text)!
