"Painting is part of construction work. Explain how men are better than women at that."

don't get me started on painting. i'm currently painting my mom's 3 bedroom house mostly by myself. and my new neighbor is a professional painter. first of all, they're painting their house to resell it. and his wife doesn't get her hands dirty. he even explained that there's a lot of stuff about painting that women can't do. let me explain.

my mom's house hasn't been painted in 30 years. so it peels a lot. 80% of painting is the prep work--mostly scraping. scraping doesn't require much physical strength, but it is a lot of work to do a whole house.

the dvd i mentioned earlier said that men produce more enzymes, can hold 30% more oxygen due to more red blood cells per body weight. for a job like scraping, which takes over a week of continous 8-hour day, men will take longer to become tired and will end up doing more work.
