A study of 2,142 drivers found 60 per cent of men admitted being distracted by attractive women while 12 per cent of women said they took their eyes off the road to leer at good looking men.
This also shows that men's standards are way lower than women's.

I think it shows that women are less horny than men (which is true anyway). But even 60% is low. I mean, 40% of men are never distracted by attractive women?

Roughly 10% of males are homosexual. The other 30% I don't know: some have hot partners, some are too focused on driving, some are a-sexual like Sheldon and reproduce by mitosis

Little Russia



This is like in that joke: the wife calls her husband and says: "Honey, be careful, they showed on TV that there is an idiot driving the wrong way on the motorway". The husband's answer is: "One idiot? There are thousands!".

Who's "they"? The gay men being distracted or the men being distracting?

I was told so already when I was doing first aid for driving licence.

Italian prescription glasses spot:

She: "Please, Nevio, drive carefully, it's almost dark, slow down!"
He: "I'm not retarded, I see very well!"
The radio: "Someone is driving wrong way on the A4."
He: "Only one? There are more!"
