I was taught that the reason child birth is so awful for women, is that Eve ate an apple.
She ate an apple and we suffer periods, cramps, horrendous birthing and the men get nothing.
This morning I watched March of the Penguins.
Penguins walk 100 miles to the South Pole.
They find a mate and lay an egg.
The female walks 100 miles back to the sea to get food before she starves.
The male stands through a polar winter in the pitch black, stormy beyond freezing conditions for 125 days without food.
The female walks 100 miles back to the male and coughs up a load of fish for her chick.
The males walk 100 miles back to the coast.
The females wait in the cold until the chicks are old enough to walk 100 miles back to the coast.
They all get back to the coast and potentially enjoy roughly 3 months of life being "not as shit as it was in winter" (leopard seal permitting).
Come March, they do it again.
Exactly what did penguins do to God? Shag the apple tree?
