related to april, 21st day... here is a news from gender-equality department :

women were just as good as men at virtual navigation when they had a large computer display. ... a standard monitor gives a viewing angle of about 35°. with a larger screen, giving a viewing angle of 70°, women navigated better. and with two screens delivering a 100° angle, women matched men's spatial abilities. "the gender difference simply disappeared," says [d expert] [more details]

maybe this is why while i feel a.o.k with that 29" tv at home, my wife has been banging my head instead, asking me to upgrade the tv to 34" or more... i guess i have to blame this headache to d 'women's lack of normal spatial viewing ability'.... no pun intended ;)
