The following is a letter written to her parents while she is away at college.

Dear Mom and Dad,

I am sorry it has taken me this long to write you, but I will update you on all the latest activities happening in my life.

You are not to read any further unless you are sitting down, OK? Are you sitting? Things are going pretty good now. The skull fracture and concussion I got jumping out of the window of my dormitory when it caught fire are almost healed. I did have to spend two weeks in the hospital and now my sight is almost back to normal and I only get the violently ill headaches once a day.

Since the dorm was destroyed I moved into an apartment with a gas station attendant who lives nearby. We are hoping to get married soon! Although we don't have the exact date picked out, we would like it to be before my pregnancy begins to show. He is of a different race and religion than ours, but I'm sure you will love him as much as I do.

Now here's the good news. There was no dormitory fire, I did not have a concussion or a skull fracture and I was not in the hospital. I am not pregnant, I'm not engaged and to be honest, there isn't even a boyfriend in my life. However, I am getting a D in French and an F in Chemistry and I wanted you to see these grades in proper prospective.

Love,
Your daughter

Believe it or not? Was this letter really written or all we all suckers who believe everything we read? Take our poll and see what other think.

Last weeks story, Cheese Chase, about those crazy Brits who chase cheese down a dangerously steep hill had a lot of you thinking it was true. I don't know for a fact if it is true or not. Every story I've read about this tradition is the same one and they all say it really happens. You can either head to England yourself to find out or decide for yourself if it's true or not.

Here are last weeks poll results:

Believe It or Not?

Yes: 85 percent
No: 4 percent
I don't know: 9 percent

Men and women are different in many ways but that doesnt mean that they cant be equal. Both have an equal role in shaping the society.

The truth is, male and females are not equal. Yes, they have similarities as breathing, living creatures. But, in most cases, that's the only thing truly in common. To put this is in a faster written, faster to read way; Mental, physical, religious, ect. views are very rarely ever 100% identical, which very easily goes for everyone regardless of gender. If male and females were truly ever viewed as equal or as the same, society would display that. Father being allowed to play as mother or mother being allowed to play father (in cases, of course), fair pay in different job placements (especially when well-deserved as a huge, main argument), fair treatment, fair appearance in industries, ect. as simple based examples. If they were viewed as equal, there would be no need for feminism and several cases of stand-offs for different rights. Now, of course this doesn't mean it needs to viewed as kindergarten play, "one for her and one for him and one for them." When things are well deserved, the more the better for that person. Male or female. But, regardless of looks or gender, there are times where one gender will hold more dominance than the other. And, throughout the human history, it has been that way. And it does not seem as if there will be much change for that in the future. Long story short: No, male and females are not equal for several different reasons.
