July 8, Getty Images The ’90s were pretty great. I had a sweet bowl cut, sneakers that lit up when I ran, and all the Ecto Cooler I could drink.

Acid Rain Thinkstock Acid rain is what you get when chemical emissions from man-made and natural sources react with water, oxygen, and other chemicals in the atmosphere to form acidic compounds that come back down to Earth in precipitation.

In the early ’90s, the federal government went after acid rain with strengthened environmental regulations. Emissions began to fall dramatically and are now millions of tons lower than they were in the late ’80s and early ’90s—at least in the U. Lax regulation and expanding industrialization and fossil fuel use in some countries, particularly China, led to an increase in acid rain—forming emissions and instances of acid rain in those places in the early s that have only recently begun to be fixed.

Some audiences considered it useful and motivational, while others felt that it was outdated, [3] anti men and antifeminist , [4] or a how-to guide that teaches women to play games that toy with men.

Fein married and divorced, and has recently remarried. Schneider has been married for over 21 years. Another criticism is that because The Rules advise rarely returning phone calls and other such hard-to-get dating methods, some men may have trouble telling the difference between a woman who is genuinely not interested or not interested anymore and one who is genuinely interested, thus leading to misunderstandings and stalkers; not only for women using The Rules, but any man who believes all women are playing similar games even when they are not.

Proponents of the methods offered in the book point to The Rules as having positive results for both men and women. They represent the point of view that men enjoy being the aggressor and are inspired to treat women better who choose behaviors which set up boundaries and slow down the courtship process.

Feminist values, they point out, do not preclude reacting with temperance and emotional independence to an initial attraction on the part of a woman. They also cite that discipline and consideration inform the actions which create egalitarian relationships.
