Did you guys take into account the fact that women - on average -
talk twice as much as men do and thus are in an advantageous
position to pass on much more memes than men. However, this
advantage is seriously hampered if you include gossip-memes
On the differences between men and women, you might wanna check
out this nice little page:
It's about the natural damage due to testosterone-action
inflicted on male-brains prior to birth. It's a scientific meme
instead of being related directly to memetics.
So, spread the word!
