BEIJING, Aug. 10 -- Men who are accused of never listening by women now have an excuse — women's voices are more difficult for men to listen to than other men's, British scientists found.

The Daily Mail, quoting findings published in the specialist magazine NeuroImage, said researchers at Sheffield University in northern England discovered startling differences in the way the brain responds to male and female sounds.

Men deciphered female voices using the auditory part of the brain that processes music, while male voices engaged a simpler mechanism, it said.

The newspaper quoted researcher Michael Hunter as saying: “The female voice is actually more complex than the male voice, due to differences in the size and shape of the vocal cords and larynx between men and women, and also due to women having greater natural 'melody' in their voices.”

“This causes a more complex range of sound frequencies than in a male voice.” Hunter explained.

The findings may help explain why people suffering hallucinations usually hear male voices, the report added, as the brain may find it much harder to conjure up a false female voice accurately than a false male voice.

No wonder most of the time when Krissy said something I said "What?".

So, what about women? Do they also find men 'easier' to listen to than each other?

That's a retarded "excuse" for not listening to women.

We don't listen to you because nothing you ever say is interesting or worthwhile. Shut your damn mouths and get back to the kitchen already, shit, if you did anything but gossip and nag we'd listen. Stop blaming us for your own shortcomings.

And you owe us a rib, dammit.

That's why women have to wear short skirts to job interviews, cause men don't listen to them unless they are acting slutty.

Nah, acting slutty just gets them hired, we still don't give a flying fuck what they have to say.

We won't listen to them unless they're rational, intelligent and interesting. It hasn't happened yet, but I'm sure it will someday.

the saying "I'll fuck your brains out" implies we do have a massive brain.

No, "brain" is just a term we use as a nickname for your girl-parts.

Ever noticed how we say "I respect you for your mind". Aaaah, it all makes sense now, doesn't it?

Now get back into the damn kitchen and toast me a steak.

Don't be silly, I wanna thrust myself into your brain, and I don't care how fucking stupid you are.

I've passed all the others of my first year, but according to the rules I should finish my first year within two years. if I don't.. it's possible I get kicked off. but I had to redo my entire first year, because I broke my goddam leg, so they might give me some slack, if I write a letter.

I heard women's voices are easier to pick up that's why they have htem on answerphones and on Satnav or GPS. One study says X another says Y. Same ol same ol.

Plus, being an answering machine message is the only chance females have of saying something useful.
