News Mash: Women are better at it during PMS? OK, what’s this guys excuse!?


The fact that this man…

Was quick to take note of the long, coiled up object in his toilet bowl?

Leaves me to draw only one conclusion…

[via CBSNewYork]It’s the stuff urban legends are made of.

A Staten Island man got quite the shock after a snake showed up in his toilet.

Allen Shepard was brushing his teeth in his Granitville apartment around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday when he looked down at the bowl saw a California Kingsnake staring back at him.

Shepard told the Staten Island Advance he grabbed a bottle of Clorox Greenworks and began spraying the snake but that wasn’t enough to deter his unwelcomed guest.

He ended up calling building superintendent Karen Genco who didn’t buy his story.

“I didn’t believe him at first, I thought he was joking, but it was for real,” Genco told 1010 WINS. “It was like a scene out of a cartoon, it was hysterical.”

 

Genco then called a plumber to wrestle the 4-foot-long snake out of the bowl.

“I grabbed the piece that was sticking out and I pulled on him gently, and he wasn’t going nowhere,” Kenneth Rosenthal, of 1-800 CLOGGED Response Service Group, said. “I pulled a little more, and I kept a steady pull on him, and it kept coming out. I said, ‘When is this thing going to end?’ I already had about 2.5 feet of him out.”

The tug-of-war between man and snake lasted about 30 minutes.

“After a little struggle trying to get him out he was quite unhappy and looking to bite,” Genco said.

Rosenthal was able to safely get the snake into a cooler before a neighbor reportedly volunteered to bring the reptile to a sanctuary in Manhattan. [Read More]

And the only conclusion I can draw…

And NOT be sexist.

He totally must have been experiencing PMS…

Because that is the only way such a snake could have been noticed in the first place.

[via Geekologie] According to a recent study conducted by Nobuo Masataka at Kyoto University, women on their periods are better at spotting snakes than when they’re not. That…wow. [...]

[Researcher Nobuo] had 60 women look at a nine-photo grid featuring eight “neutral, non-scary” flowers and one snake shot. The results showed that they could spot the snakes faster during the “luteal” (aka PMS-y) part of their cycles, suggesting a biological mechanism that can “help pregnant and potentially pregnant women stay safe.”

Seriously, Science…

Really?!

And if one ever had doubts that Science was a male dominated field…

Hopefully this fantastic example has successfully assuaged that nutty, silly belief.

    If I see snake in my toilet, I would open the door and start walking, never to come back.
    Oh, my gawd. Now I will have to examine the bowl every time.

    An the place I should feel secure and happy. While sitting on my toilet bowl. “shakes head”
    Revenge will be sweet.

    • Hey, I (even despite my HUGE fear of spiders) posted that animated gif of the Australian spiders coming out from under the lid of the toilet…Remember that? So I see this? Just balancing that scale. And you know how much I appreciate balance. :D Now we BOTH will have a huge fear of going to the bathroom.
