*Steve Harvey doesn't exactly score points when women are involved:
"A man fishes for two reasons:
He’s either sport fishing or fishing to eat,
which means he’s either going to try to catch
the biggest fish he can, take a picture of it,
admire it with his buddies and toss it back to sea,
or he’s going to take that fish on home, scale it, fillet it,
toss it in some cornmeal, fry it up, and put it on his plate.
This, I think, is a great analogy for how
men seek out women..."

*74yrs ago today:
December 7, 1941...
'a date which will live in infamy'
the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked
by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.
The United States was at peace with that nation, and, at the solicitation
of Japan, was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed,
one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American island of Oahu, the Japanese ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our secretary of state a formal reply to a recent American message. While this reply stated that it seemed
useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations,
it contained no threat or hint of war or armed attack.
It will be recorded that the distance of Hawaii from Japan makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the Japanese government has deliberately sought to deceive the United States by false statements
and expressions of hope for continued peace.
The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe
damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition,
American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas
between San Francisco and Honolulu.
Yesterday the Japanese government also launched
as attack against Malaya.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam.
Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Wake Island.
And this morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island.
Japan has, therefore, undertaken a surprise offensive extending throughout the Pacific area. The facts of yesterday and today speak
for themselves. The people of the United States have already formed
their opinions and well understand the implications to the very life
and safety of our nation.
As commander in chief of the Army and Navy I have directed that
all measures be taken for our defense. But always will our whole
nation remember the character of the onslaught against us..."
