Don't worry, I smell what you're cookin'.

No doubt this shouldn't be viewed as an actual experiment.

But I think it's a good idea for an actual experiment.

But men are better than women. This aside since it's irrelevant. funnyjunk.com/FOLLOW+THE+LINK+IN+THE+DESCRIPTION/funny-pictures/5095871/282#282

If you picked the right candidates for women, the expirement would be just as pointless. You would only prove that a certain individual is better than everyone else.

If you only pick women who have enough background to actually do something on the island it defeats the purpose of the experiment(Yes I'm fairly certain these men were your average joe with same education etc with the women). You pick average male and average female from similar backgrounds and get what you get. My guess is this would be the result almost every single time. pic related

If you read the article this wasn't just one case, there are other shows with same results.

No, the post isn't trying to say men are better than women, it's trying to say a male led society is better than a female led society.

i get what you are saying and all, but in all seriousness. what percentage of women in lets say america . honestly have any military or farming experience. now if you were to get a woman from a country like africa that would be a totally different story. they were already in a constant struggle for survival. also have you ever seen the series the colony. it was a experiment specifically designed for the people of certain skill sets to survive in a post apocalyptic city environment. everyone had a different skill set. doctor, welder, contractor, scientist, etc etc. even the women were considered a useful skill set. however, the women consistently did absolutely nothing on day one when the men were looking around for a place to make their own. the women did absolutely nothing. one was making dresses out of useful material that could have been used to make rope or something. not to mention when the women did anything they thought was useful they just ended up losing valuable resources for everyone. when they were ever confronted they all pow wowed together and complained about the person and refused to do anything until the men apologized to the. with the exception of maybe one woman the others were pretty much useless. however the point i am trying to make is the average modern civilized woman cannot survive without a man in a survival situation.(obviously there are exceptions to every rule) most women now a days don't have any basic knowledge of hunting or foods to gather. water purification or hell at least basic mechanical knowledge (motors, electronics, etc etc.). from personal experience i learned from boy scouts how to do these things. i don't know were girls would find a good source of information like that other than girl scouts and i really don't see them teaching survival in that trust me i ran a camp that was used by girl scouts. so for the average civilized woman, it is impossible for them to survive own their own and yes this experiment is valid for that.

In a survival situation, spoiled or not, you need to step up and survive, its clear most women cant do this.
#177 - minelava (04/14/2014) [-]
We live in the 21st century, though. All the technical knowledge of surviving in the wild is one google search away. Sure, men may be more likely to get actual experience... but again, think about the time we're living in. People as a rule don't spend a great deal of time in nature unless you're really a nature enthusiast. Men as a whole don't possess some ancient knowledge of how to survive in the wild. If they have it, then they acquired it for themselves. I sure as hell didn't come pre-packaged with an encyclopedia on how to build huts.

That aside, the point of the experiment was to show how women and men prospered in isolated environments away from the comforts of technology. The men did okay and the women... did not.

If that's because they were programmed to be that way by society, then maybe they should learn to think for themselves. Perhaps they should show us the sight of a strong nord woman. And they should probably do it before they destroy the vile male patriarchy, if this experiment shows us anything at all.

My problem is that this experiment shows nothing, there are so many different factor to worry about that we don't know. How were these people selected? What were they told before going on the island? What backgrounds did these people have?

Most importantly this was done by a reality show for the purposes of entertainment. Taking this as some kind of proof of anything is what is annoying me. The link in the description even calls it an "Accidental experiment". It was made for entertainment not any scientific inquiry. There are just so many variables that it would take a series of experiments by people who know what they are doing to pull off an experiment to show anything definitive.

Im annoyed at this as a scientist more than anything else. I feel people are taking this and making conclusions on limited information.

I agree. Even if they just chose people from the middle class in any first world country.

the point this post is trying to make though is that men are better than women, there are too many variables for this "experiment" to be anywhere near conclusive. What if they just took women who grew up on farms or spent time in the millitary, the results would be different.

i see where your coming from, but alot of feminists seem to think that men cant be "raped" by women so its actually good that its from a male perspective and i think it shows equality in a weird way
