Can you tell me why there is so much "ever" in this sentence?
Good question! The speaker has probably used "ever" twice in one sentence to add extra emphasis. "Ever" means "at any time," so you can understand "you ever notice that men only ever do stupid things for one reason" to emphasize that men do stupid things for one reason only. The second "ever" in the sentence is being used to emphasize "only." Ex: You only ever help me with chores when I ask you. Ex: I only ever drive my car when it's snowing or raining.
