Hungarian village World War I - all the men conscripted and taken off to fight, leaving women to run farms and businesses. A POW camp built nearby, the enemy soldiers let out to work as labourers for the women. As you'd expect, liaisons developed. But, the women had the absolute whip hand. If they chose to take other lovers, none could complain or they'd be confined to the camp. Eventually this idyllic state of affairs (if you'll excuse the pun) came to an end when, sadly, the war finished. The menfolk returned to their village, but found their women radically changed. In the next 5 years, more than half the men of the village died suddenly. The women later revealed that they'd found a way of concocting a cumulative dose of poison from wallpaper paste.

(There were) several bizarre elements about the Novacks' life together, including what happened to Narcisa Novack after she said her husband broke her nose. She told police that he took her to a plastic surgeon to repair her nose and when she woke up after the surgery she had breast implants she hadn't asked for, the report says. "While she contends this was done against her will, she never made a complaint to anyone."

"One, two, three, seven, nine, ten", which is good enough for me, as, personally, I've always thought the numbers four, five, six and eight were overrated. Everything I know about women . . .

You have to take care of your looks, said long time editor of Cosmopolitan, because sex is a dance, and how the other person looks is part of the dance. And you need a husband because it's less exhausting to have one on standby than to have to catch a new one every time. Helen Gurley Brown

The problem with talking is that no-one stops you from saying the wrong thing. I think life would be a lot better if it was like you were always making a movie. You mess up, someone walks on the set and stops the whole shot. Think of the things you wish you could take back. You're out somewhere with people. "Boy you look pregnant, are you?" "Cut cut cut that's not going to work at all. Walk out the door, come back in, let's take this whole scene again. People, think about what you're saying." Jerry Seinfeld

Michael Silverstein was in town to discuss his new book, written with Kate Sayre, Women Want More: How to Capture Your Share of the World's Largest, Fastest-Growing Market.

So if you're patient, and keep a positive attitude, and don't give up hope, the odds are very good that you will never meet this guy, because he lives in some place like Uzbekistan. So you might want to consider Plan B, which is becoming a nun, assuming you're OK with the longer skirt." I'll Mature When I'm Dead

... they go home to the event planners they married as trophy wives a few decades ago and who have now in their fifties turned into modern American centaurs. Because cosmetic surgeons are apparently more proficient the lower down the body you get, these women have legs like Serena Williams but overstretched g-force cheeks and stuffed-pillow lips."

You're just like crosstown traffic
So hard to get through to you
Crosstown traffic
I don't need to run over you
Crosstown traffic
All you do is slow me down
And I'm tryin' to get on the other side of town

I'm not the only soul who's accused of hit and run
Tire tracks all across your back
I can see you had your fun
But darlin' can't you see my signals turn from green to red
And with you I can see a traffic jam straight up ahead

Bridesmaids celebrated as a rare example of a movie that aces the Bechdel Test, a means of examining films for gender bias that often makes Hollywood seem shockingly misogynistic.
