Why Its Great to be a Man,.. (2) 'the July 2005 update'.
The first list was from an email i got in september 1999, the second set is from (Helen Hanna), in July 2005, you can see that basicly the same email has been circulating for that long, but it has eveloved over time.

I am quite impressed that one email in various forms can hang around so long, more so given the dramatic changes that have taken place in the internet and the use of email between 1999 and 2005. I look forward to how this email will have changed by 2011 !!.
