    Too much time indeed.

    If the word "mate" in the original question doesn't resolve the issue for someone, let him spend a few minutes in the plumbing aisle of the hardware store.
    "Male" and "female" recognition issues can swiftly be resolved in this way.

    ....but don't go too far...threading and soldering is only required for advanced human mating procedures!

    Stay away from the pipe bending jig!

    Why did I just scream "WHO CARES!" at the monitor? Why did I read this far down?
