A two-year study of half a million UK motorists by an insurance company found what both genders have known since the days of Model-T: <a href="http://www.timesonline.co.uk/printFriendly/0,,1-2-473031,00.html">women can't park, men run over pedestrians and drive into walls. </a> <blockquote>[Women are] almost twice as likely as men to have a collision in a car park, 23 per cent more likely to hit a stationary car and 15 per cent more likely to reverse into another vehicle. Men, however, ... are involved in more head-on collisions, kill more pedestrians and are 27 per cent more likely to hit a barrier or wall.(<---married men I presume?) </blockquote> While on its face this is not a great revelation, the psycho-sociological implications are immense. Allan Please in his best seller <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0767907639/qid=1036757409/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/103-2202071-1801439?v=glance&s=books">Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps</a> claimed that the parts of the brain that controls the ability to judge distances are under-developed in women. <blockquote>Spatial ability is one of the male strengths. It allows them to calculate the distance of prey, to estimate how fast they will have to run to catch it and how hard they will have to throw a spear to kill it. Since women stayed at home in the caves, tending their children and venturing out only in the immediate proximity to gather food, their spatial abilities were never developed.<Blockquote> Another blanket evolutionary excuse or does this writer have something?
