In a story sure to not surprise many women:
Men are more likely than women to develop mild cognitive impairment (MCI), with and without memory problems, researchers found.

Women have a higher rate of dementia but men, it seems, cannot "tolerate deficits as well as women," says the study.  I suppose we have less cognitive capacity to draw on.  The deficits for men, the story goes on to point out somewhat painfully, "are fatal."

Sheesh.  Women go nuts at a greater rate then men, but if we go -- we go fast. 

I'm doomed.
