    It is something one half of the population has long suspected - and the other half always vocally denied. Women really do talk more than men.

    In fact, women talk almost three times as much as men, with the average woman chalking up 20,000 words in a day - 13,000 more than the average man.

    Women also speak more quickly, devote more brainpower to chit-chat - and actually get a buzz out of hearing their own voices, a new book suggests

    The best part: the simple act of talking triggers a flood of brain chemicals which give women a rush similar to that felt by heroin addicts when they get a high.

    ADDICTS!!

    This thread won't end well sets up the rest of this thread nicely.

    I have no idea what you mean. I mean, sure, girls talk a lot. I mean I talk a lot. I talk more than most probably. I talk A LOT. I talk fast, too. LIke really fast. Like micromachines fast. And I can talk a whole lot without taking a breath. Kind of like that cheerleader girl on the cell phone commercial showing her minutes running down. THAT is an annoying commercial. I mean, who wants to see their minutes ticking down? Certainly not me. I'll use them until they run out, then I won't use them anymore. Like, duh. But I like my cell phone. I have a Razr. I've had it for about 11 months. It's not new like 21's Blackjack (hahaha 21's Blackjack! Get it?) but it works good and I like it. It's kind of hard sometimes because it's so thin that I can't hold it against my ear while talking. But I like the camera on it, and you can take video. Know what my favorite video is? Right now, I'm not sure. But overall? I love the a-ha video for "Take On Me" I mean, who doesn't love that video? I think it could still win an MTV award right now. It's awesome! Plus, I had a thing for Morten Haarket. He would have been on my five back then if I were old enough to have a list of five. I'm 30 now, so I can have a list of five. And I'd talk a lot to each of them. Either way, I think this study was stupid. Girls talk. Duh. Get used to it.
     
  5. Anthropologists speculate that men talk less because while hunting any noise could frighten potential prey.

    That also explains why women talk more because they would make noise in order to scare off potential predators.

    And you don't think you've done anything to warrant All-SportsJournalists.com status? :D

    Anyone on this site who's been on the phone with me can verify that's actually frighteningly close to how I am when talking.

    I don't think you talk that quickly. I'll have to pay attention next time. :D

    We talk about your work.
    How your boss is a jerk.
    We talk about your church.
    And your head when it hurts.
    We talk about the troubles,
    you've been having with brother,
    about your Daddy and your Mother,
    and your crazy ex-lover.

    We talk about your friends,
    and the places that you've been.
    We talk about your skin,
    and the dimples on your chin.
    The polish on your toes,
    and the run in your hose,
    and God knows we're goin'
    to talk about your clothes.

    You know talkin' about you makes me smile.
    But every once in a while,
    I wanna talk about me,
    Wanna talk about I,
    Wanna talk about number one,
    Oh my me my,
    What I think,
    What I like,
    What I know,
    What I want,
    What I see.
    I like talkin' bout
    you, you, you, you, usually.
    But occasionally,
    I wanna talk about me,
    I wanna talk about me.

    We talk about your dreams,
    And we talk about your schemes.
    You high school team,
    And your moisturizer cream.
    We talk about your Nana,
    Up in Muncy Indiana.
    We talk about your Grandma,
    Down in Alabama.
    We talk your guys,
    Of every shape and size.
    And ones you dispise,
    And the one you idolize.
    We talk about your heart,
    Bout your brain and your smarts,
    And your medical charts
    And when you start.

    You know talkin' about you makes me grin.
    But every now and then,
    I wanna talk about me,
    Wanna talk about I,
    Wanna talk about number one,
    Oh my me my,
    What I think,
    What I like,
    What I know,
    What I want,
    What I see.
    I like talkin' bout
    you, you, you, you, usually.
    But occasionally,
    I wanna talk about me,
    I wanna talk about me.

    I wanna talk me.

    I wanna talk about me,
    Wanna talk about I,
    Wanna talk about number one,
    Oh my me my,
    What I think,
    What I like,
    What I know,
    What I want,
    What I see.
    I like talkin' bout
    you, you, you, you, usually.
    But occasionally,
    I wanna talk about me,
    I wanna talk about me.
     
  12. In all honesty, for me, it's such a turn on to hang out with a girl who talks like that, as long as she's directing all of the attention to you also. ;D
