A portion of a hockey game. There are three periods of 20 minutes each; if the score is tied at the end of the third period, there will be one or more overtime periods.
After the second period, I went to the washroom.

Punishment. Worst pain in the world. A good exuse to stay home from school/work. But it still hurts like fuck.
Mother: "Carrie! Get up, it's time to go to school!"
Carrie: "Oy... Mom, I have my period..."
Mother: "I'll call the school and tell them you're not feeling well."

the time when blood and liquid flows out of the vagina, starts between age of 12-16 for most girls, some later, earlier.

Don't DARE to talk about this to your girlfriend
Her period began last week
by 7 Train January 27, 2004

Once a girl reaches puberty, these hormones take over and she starts to have boobs, curves, and becomes more emotional and feminine etc. These hormones also enlarge her hips and uterus. This lining builds up in the uterus and sheds itself every 28 days if she doesn't get knocked up, thus she gets her period.

People tell me, "Well we have periods because we're supposed to have babies!" But even if this were true, I read this study that a woman ovulates 400 eggs in her lifetime. Who could actually have 400 kids? Even in the old days when they had like 12 kids and they only lived to be like 60, a woman would still have more periods and pain than she would kids.

Now it's the 2000s and nobody has 12 kids anymore, some people don't even like or want kids, but we're still stuck with periods and the average age of menarche is declining due to all the calories and stress. As a result, we've suffered too much from periods: we miss school, lose blood, have cramps, waste money buying "feminine hygiene" products, and basically go through a lot more than the guys do.
Periods are flawed.
They were always flawed, even in the ancient days.
Too much blood loss and waste.

Something boys complain about but they should not cause they don't have to have the extreme pain for a week a month.

when us ladies bleed out of our vaginas on a monthly basis. it lasts about a week on average and may cause you to sit at an awkward angle when you're in school.
causes horrid cramps for most girls.
when you hang out with people enough, supposedly you all menstruate at the same time. this is when the crime rate goes up in your neighborhood/area.
guy: hey, slut, you wanna suck my-
girl: don't fuck with me! i'm on my period, asswipe!

A time where the world turns against you, and nobody does anything right. Where women get to scream, and be as bitchy as possible. Basically, a whole weeks worth of anger, midol, pain, much time spent for bathroom breaks, and checking your ass every second to see if your covered.
"How was your day?"
"Oh great.. Mother nature brought me my period.. bitch"
