Who said that? And I hope you aren't endorsing that.

The reasons there aren't more women listed would include the fact that our historic and current achievements still aren't equally recognized, and we still aren't afforded the same opportunities and certainly weren't throughout history. We all know that, don't we?

Will Ferrell's character in Anchorman.

Veronica Corningstone: Mr. Burgundy, I am a professional and I would like to do my job.
Ron Burgundy: Big deal. I am very professional.
Veronica Corningstone: Mr. Burgundy, you are acting like a baby.
Ron Burgundy: I'm not a baby, I'm a MAN, I am an ANCHORMAN.
Veronica Corningstone: You are not a man. You are a big fat joke.
Ron Burgundy: I'm a man who discovered the wheel and built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn. That's what kind of man I am. You're just a woman with a small brain. With a brain a third the size of us. It's science.

I like how they left out that Andrew Jackson (#18) signed the Indian Removal Act of 1830 into law. Trail of Tears, anyone?
I know they sum up all these people in a sentence, but I think that one was pretty darn influential.

OK, thanks for the answer. I never saw that movie, I'm too dumb to know how to get to the movie theater

Had to look it up. Apparently it's become a stock response when the value of men and women is discussed. Google the quote without the quote marks and see how often it's posted, lol.

PS. I thought it was Ralph Kramden. It was such a Ralphie thing to say.

The point of posting the quote was to point out the foolishness of such ideas. (As is the point of the line in the movie.)

a woman should never be in a movie theater unaccompanied. she should always be in the company of her parents, her husband, or a potential male suitor.

I would be cautious with the smaller brain size. Einstein's brain e.g. was only 1.2kg in weight, whereas average male brain size is 1.5kg

So, lighter, because more efficient?

That's what I figured nathan, as I have never observed you expressing such thoughts here in FYM- but it wasn't exactly clear. Given the fact that threads have actually been started here expressing such ideas (and some posts have said same), I hope you can understand my caution and feelings on the matter.

AH! I thought that was familiar! Too lazy to google it though. Isn't it funny how google has now become a verb?
