Man vs. Machine

n LONDON, () -- An overwhelming majority of British women believe a refrigerator is more useful than the man in their lives, according to a survey published Thursday.

A massive 87 percent of women interviewed for the survey, which was carried out on behalf of the country's frozen food industry, reckoned their fridge was more indispensable than their partner.

The survey of 1,000 British women also found that they make unconventional use of their fridges.

While in general the majority use it to store food, some of those questioned admitted keeping tights, compact discs, candles and even money there. The cold reputedly increases the quality of compact discs, prevents runs in tights and increases candles' burning time.
