    What's wrong with retiring at 64? If he can afford it why not?

    Is this the same guy?

    Note that the board says he's retired. For someone who graduated from medical school in 1974, he's probably about 64. Did he just retire a little early? Or was something else going on?

    The intent of the male alliances we see each season is not to eliminate all of the women first. The rare exception is when men band together to survive an all-female alliance. On the other hand, the sole purpose of most 'girl power' alliances is to get rid of the men. A practice, as mentioned upthread, that is no longer necessary.

    Kim has absolutely no need for a 'girl power' alliance. She's smarter than most, if not all. She's physically as capable as any of the men. AND, she has a Hidden Immunity Idol. Again, as mentioned earlier, it's a lazy strategy.

    Women are not victims, and it's time they started acting accordingly.

    A friend posted this on her Facebook page last night...

    Nothing at all wrong with retiring at 64 or whenever you want. But considering how long physicians, particularly surgeons, train, and how much most of them seem to love their work, 64 seems a little early to hang it all up (and we don't know whether he actually retired years ago). Some doctors teach at med schools after they stop practicing. Michael Debakey, also from Houston, was a pioneering heart surgeon well into his 80s. I raise the question because Dr. Tarzan seems to have displayed issues relating to memory and emotional control, and I wonder whether similar issues might have come up in his real life.

    Troyzan ...I think he was willing to go ahead and flip to Mike, because he doesn't want to have to play that immunity idol to soon...Kim talked to him about Mike, so if he feels the women will talk to him about who to vote out, he can remain safe...as long as he is given other vote out options, he will feel safe...or he could go home with it in his pocket...LOL

    Does that make sense? Haha

    I thought I heard Troyzan say he did not trust Mike from the beginning. I believe this is why he was so quick to jump on the bandwagon and vote him off.

    They have long days, and there is no way he wouldn't have approached Mike if he had wanted to keep him around .Troyzan did what was best for himself.As they all are
