Its SO funny ... and accurate (I referred to my "nothing box" just today!
I wonder if some guys' "nothing" box is bigger than others (hearing an echo.)
I told Paul today..."Honey, I really need you to find a way to make those two boxes touch."
Thanks for reposting this - I was telling someone about this video the other day and didn't have time to look for it on youtube at the moment. This made it a lot easier.
I'd heard something similar several years ago, and often in conversation will jokingly tell my husband "we're going to close that drawer of conversation and open another one now!" ... (the other speaker I had heard referred to men having different "drawers" instead of "boxes" but it was the same concept.)
Oh, boy, did that sound like some of the conversations around our house!!! LOL
ME: What are you thinking about?
ME: What do you mean, "nothing"?
MARK: I mean I'm not thinking about anything.
ME: How can you think about nothing? You have to be thinking about something!
MARK: No. I'm thinking about nothing. Don't you ever just think about nothing?
ME: No, I'm always thinking about something! You have to be thinking about something!
MARK: No, really, I'm thinking about nothing.
ME (becoming very exasperated): I don't understand how you can say you are thinking about nothing! You have to be thinking about something!!!
MARK (in a slightly irritated voice): Nope! I'm thinking about nothing!
Yeah, we really have had that conversation. More than once. I thought it was just some weird quirk of Mark's. LOL The video explains a lot!

The part at the end is my favorite - "she's not a man...if you try to fix her, she's gonna kill you!"
