I started writing a post in Blast's thread "step 1 Step 2" but then I got wiser and changed my mind about posting it. However, one sentence I had included in that post was " I wish there was a planet where men didnt need women ". That made me thinking about a possible survival scenario where a group of survivors included several men ( 5 - 10 ) and no woman, or worse ... ONE woman. Do you think that on the long run the group will be distracted by the woman presence over their own survival situation and then, their survival chances be affected ? Or, do you think they will be a way to sort things in a logical or rational manner ?

On the less serious side, I thought about another scenario where there is ONE man, and several female survivors. Anyone wants to be in such a situation ? (devilish smile)

I suspect that in the "one woman" thingy, she would be the boss. And in the "one man" a women would still be the boss...

This post reminds me of the ethnic joke about 2 men and 1 woman of various ethnic backgrounds on an island. It can be found at: http://www.afunnystuff.com/jokes/Ethnic-jokes/On-a-tropical-island.html.

And I will say no more.

The book "Lord of the Flies" is probably a realistic portrayl of such a situation, though the survivors are boys ages 9-14 or so rather than men. Not much difference though, right Sue? grin

I think that I will pass on this one...

Actually, this was the premise of a book called The Disappearance by Philip Wylie (1951). To the men, all the women had disappeared. To the women, all the men had disappeared. The story jogs back and forth between how each group handles it.
