What a new and original hypothesis. How come no one has thought
of this before. This is ground-breaking, Earth shattering, self
serving too; and of course rubbish.

Jerry is probably like me; he sorts out the fringers and the
nutcases from the rest whether they be female or male.

What about the women only UFO conference; would you not agree
that this is discrimination? It would be interesting to see a
women's only Astronomy conference or a women's only Physics
conference.
