10 THINGS MEN CAN DO THAT WOMEN CAN'T

Tried & Tested
In short, we're the lesser sex, or so the message goes.
Women are better equipped with the skills the 21st century requires - empathy, emotional intelligence and the ability to connect. Oh, and not to mention their flawless ability to communicate over and over and over again.
And yet, on the flip side, they have to sit down to pee. Not so great in festival situations when the portaloos are either occupied or detrimental to your health. And when it comes to sport, well, there is more fanfare over men’s sport than women’s so that is saying something.
So chin up, boys. All is not lost. Here are 10 other things we men can do that they can't.
Take our drink
We're allowed to drink more of these than the ladies! There's a very good reason that women are advised to drink far fewer units of alcohol than men. They can't take it. Men are generally bigger, so the alcohol we do consume is less concentrated in our bloodstream. We also produce more of the enzyme that breaks down booze in the body. That's why the recommended government level is a little higher for men. Which means that while we're still chatting intelligently to pals about the gold standard or the works of Dostoevsky (as we like to do after a couple of drinks) any women in the party are either head-on-the-table or in a different world wondering how on earth they'll stay awake on the night bus.
