Synopsis

"We would be delighted to know what prompted John Gray's say ""Women are from Venus and Men are from Mars"", but it's not only the case here and there are endless of differences between men and women that are amazing to know; some are hilarious to read whilst others are... well... you are wiser and can judge better.
The eternal battle of sexes has been going on ever since the dawn of humanity. Which is smarter? More successful? More creative? Better lover?... and a million other reasons for our microscopic brains to keep a scoreboard. Men chicken-scratch, while women decorate their penmanship. Women make a list of things they need then go out grocery shopping, while men wait for the only items left in their fridges are half a lime and a beer and then end up buying whatever looks good on the shelves. A woman cries her eyes out to her girlfriends when a relationship ends, writes a poem titled ""Men Are Jerks"" and then moves on to her next prey. A man has a little more trouble letting go. A few months after the breakup, in the middle of the night, he will call and say: ""I just want you to know that you ruined my life, and I'll never forgive you, and I hate you, and you're a total floozy. But there's still a chance for us, and I love you"" (Alright, alright! SOME men might do that).
All of the above is being said of course putting aside the subliminal messages that both sexes conduct. Women, for example, might tell you that there's a slight difference in your ages when she actually means that you are one Jurassic geezer. ""I'm not attracted to you in THAT' way"" (you are the ugliest dork I've ever laid eyes upon). ""I've got a boyfriend"" (who's actually my male cat and half a gallon of Haagen daxa). ""I'm concentrating on my career"" (even something as boring and unfulfilling as my job is better than dating you) and the most famous line ""It's not you, it's me"", while in fact ""it is definitely you and not me, buddy"".
Men aren't any better. They tend to be harsh as well when it comes to the opposite sex. They'd tell a lady that they think of her as sister when they actually mean that she's ugly. ""There's a slight difference in your ages (you're ugly). ""I'm not attracted to you in THAT' way"" (you're ugly). ""I've got a girlfriend"" (you're ugly). ""I'm concentrating on my career"" (you're ugly) and the most famous line ""It's not you, it's me"", while in fact it means that they find her PAINFULLY ugly.
We differ but we both thrive for excellence. We both wanna have a house in Sursock, spend our summers in St. George and our winters in Faraya. What we unconsciously do and how we act on a daily basis is no Hercules vs. Thor. It's a matter of proving our existence and constantly playing around with what works better for us and what we do better than the other. We treat it and deal with it differently... Bloody Duh! But we want the same outcome... Don't we? Hello? Anyone?
The whole point behind this issue's theme is to play around with who did what better. Did Harvey Keitel do a better job in ""Reservoir Dogs"" than Jane Fonda in Barbarella? Is Kanye West's album better produced than that of Cat Power's? The planet is overloaded with talent and this is the perfect battlefield! It brings out the best of both worlds.
Bottom line, who wouldn't enjoy sharing the table with someone who appreciates buying good records (or illegally downloading them), watching a good movie and having great sex? It's all a game at the end, isn't it?"
