Men don't lie, they simply describe perfectly plausible alternate realities.
Sadly, women have one reality only.

Starbucks does NOT sell coffee.
The jury is still out on what they're really selling, but it ain't coffee.

If the enemy is in range, so are you.

Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action.

All strategies need a Plan B.

The Plan B should be better than "and then we all starve to death in a snowbank outside Smolensk."

When a statement begins "It's not that I don't...", the speaker doesn't.

Americans can't make tea.
Brits can't make coffee.

Therapy is expensive, popping bubble wrap is cheap. You choose.

Avionics are smoke powered....

... Because when smoke starts leaking out of the boxes, the fairy kit stops working.

On my fitters course the instructor told the class "radar is voodoo magic. Nobody really understands how the system works".

Women need a reason to have sex; men need an opportunity.

When it comes to shopping, the reverse is true.

The rotors on a helicopter are only there to keep the pilots cool.

When they stop turning, watch them start sweating ...
