I'm... pretty sure it's not just women. Jason recently bought a large majority of the Discworld books on impulse. Yorick bought a wiffle ball set on impulse. (Of course I can't fault them for it- they have a lot more money than I have.) I'm just saying that spending impulsively on stupid shit (like laughing at fart jokes) knows no gender. (Fart.)
I am pretty sure buying all that was because it was something to do with friends that I hardly see anymore...that doesn't involve drinking or sitting around depressed that life is so awful...is not an impulse. Dick.-Yorick
Fine, fine. Bad example. And wiffle ball doesn't necessarily NOT have to involve drinking. Frankly I think watching one another try to hit a plastic ball with a broom handle after downing a fifth of Jack each would be a real treat for everyone involved!
