Questions



...and then there are the ones that you just know you shouldn't answer but do anyway.

This one I didn't understand...

If B is a subset of A and stands for questions asked by guys then the rest logically should be questions asked by girls.... which is also C, and of which a portion are apparently unanswerable...

Grrrr.....

My head is in no condition for this....

Merry Christmas anyway...

@karen13 - Well, you are obviously falling prey to that oh-so-old logical fallacy of the False Dilemma. For you see, the set of all Questions (say, Q) is not covered exclusively by the following partitions (which, for the record, need not even be mutually exclusive) - Questions asked mostly by guys and Questions asked mostly by girls.

What I'm trying to say is this - there can be questions that are not asked mostly by either group.

All that being said, these graphs are not going to stand up if faced with a rigorous mathematical onslaught. See, smile, and move on, I guess.

Thanks for all the comments. Keep coming back!

@workhard: You mean psychology? No, I don't. Not formally at least. Like I said earlier - I'm just observant. And a little bit mad. Thanks for all the comments though and keep visiting!
