men: July 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgMen are more likely to be involved in a car accident over the summer - because they're distracted by scantily-clad women, it has been found.

A recent study discovered that in 2009, men made 16.4 percent more car insurance claims during the summer than women.

25 percent of blokes also admitted to having had a summertime crash at some point in the past and being more prone to road rage in hot weather.

However it isn't just the rising temperature getting men hot under the collar, it's also what women are wearing.

29 percent of men say they are distracted by women's summer attire (or should that be lack of it) while only 3 percent of women say the same.

275x250.jpgWomen are more organised in the workplace than men and are generally better at keeping to deadlines and turning up on time, it has been revealed.

A recent study looked at the the differences in the organisational skills of men and women, to see who made the better employees.

It was discovered women are the better prepared with 43 percent rating themselves as "very organised" compared to just 32 percent of men.

This means men are more likely to forget to phone people back and lose documents on their messy desks… while 40 percent of women say their desk is spotless.

1-in-10 men also admitted they have no structure to their work life -- which could explain why so many have lost an important document (17%) missed a deadline (44%) or been late for work (41%) in the past month.

275x250.jpgWomen are consistently better at multitasking than men, it has been claimed by psychology experts.

Boffins from the University of Hertfordshire say they've conducted a study into multitasking ability and found women come out top.

While men and women performed equally when they multitasked on simple maths and map reading tasks - as the tasks became harder the women far excelled the blokes.

In one test where people were asked to 'search for the lost key' by drawing on a piece of paper how they would search a field 70 per cent of women performed better than the average male.

However, this could just be because women have had much more practice looking for lost keys... and they know they are actually always in the bottom of their handbag.

275x250.jpgTopped with pink icing and copious sprinkles, it's safe to say most cupcakes are not the most manly of snacks, but all that is about to change.

A New York firm call the Butch Bakery has given the humble cupcake a manly makeover so that blokes won't feel embarrassed munching one as they walk down the street.

Rather than delicate and girly-looking pale frosting, the cakes are topped with camouflage inspired chocolate disks on a layer of icing.

Flavours such as strawberry and raspberry have also been ditched in favour of options including beer, whisky and peanut butter.

Makers say 500 of the £2.50 cupcakes are currently flying off the shelves each week… though they admit most of the buyers are still women.
