After a UKIP Euro MP said: "No self-respecting small businessman with a brain in the right place would ever employ a lady of child-bearing age", BBC News published a top ten quotes from the battle of the sexes:

1. "I do, and I also wash and iron them."
Denis Thatcher, 1981, when asked who wore the trousers in his house

2. "The great question... which I have not been able to answer, despite my 30 years of research into the feminine soul, is 'What does a woman want'?"
Sigmund Freud, psychoanalyst.

3. Women's rights now! (Yes dear)
(Perhaps apocryphal) graffito

4. If it were a lady, it would get its bottom pinched (If this lady was a car she'd run you down)
Graffito scrawled under advert for "the beautiful" Fiat 127, 1979

5. "Why can't a woman be more like a man?"
Henry Higgins, lyric from A Hymn to Him, My Fair Lady

6. "Women fail to understand how much men hate them"
Germaine Greer, The Female Eunuch

7. "What passes for woman's intuition is often nothing more than man's transparency."
Author George Jean Nathan

8. "God made man stronger but not necessarily more intelligent. He gave women intuition and femininity. And, used properly, that combination easily jumbles the brain of any man I've ever met."
Actress Farrah Fawcett

9. "Women have served all these centuries as looking-glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size."
Novelist Virginia Woolf

10. "Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage."
William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

"I am not young enough to know everything"

Wilde's quotes are so deep yet funny, I never know where they should go, profound or amusing.

AUGUST 5--In an unfortunate, though not uncommon, verbal miscue, President George W. Bush today told a White House audience that his administration never stops thinking about ways to harm the United States. The embarrassing malapropism came as Bush appeared before military brass to sign a new $417 billion defense appropriation bill. Referring to the country's enemies, Bush said, "They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." Click below if you'd like to view a video excerpt from the ceremony.

That wasn't Carol (Helen Hunt) who asked that question. That was the receptionist at Melvin's (Jack Nicholson) publisher's office. I'm an expert on that film Big Smile

Remember the one which read something like... known knowns are the ones we know then there are the known unknowns and the unknown unknowns which are unknowable. Phuck I still wet myself thinking about it.

I think that was Donald Rumsfeld talking about the distinction between uncertainty (unknown unknowns) and risk (known unknowns). But you're right: I bet this is exactly what Dick Cheney's hunting partner is regretfully mulling as he lies in his hospital bed.

Full Cheney quote is:

"As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know.

We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say we know there are some things we do not know.

But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know."

Genius...
