One of the best ways to get comfortable with women is to learn to be a natural flirt – the same way many of them do. We all know women who bring about a rise in men whenever they come around smiling, talking and doing things that are near the line of flirting but just don’t cross it. Men have struggled with the concept of flirting since the beginning of time because quite frankly we have too much reverence for women. We are afraid of what they will think, how it will look and oh my god she may actually “gasp” reject us! Flirting without expectations means that in a social atmosphere you are suave and debonair, you touch hands, you make borderline naughty jokes, and you just don’t give a damn what anybody thinks – within reason. We all know that there is a… [Read more]

1. Michael Phelps Defines Champion How absolutely Alpha is Michael Phelps? Going out on top, snatching every gold that they dangled in his face and paving his own path as a legendary Olympian. I found it funny how the media tried it’s damndest to create drama for the titan with rumors of rivalry with a teammate and his dating a strange s“hot” blonde who they feared was out to dig gold. Phelps’ Teflon ability to keep it classy, humble and professional when facing a hot mic made him that much more impressive as all the rumors fell apart due to them failing at shaking up his gangster poker face. 2. We Still Had James… For all the changes in modern culture to do away with Alpha males it was great to see that the most Alpha of them all is still a relevant hero in… [Read more]

2013 is quickly approaching and the new year is a time for new beginnings. Its the time of year where most are creating their list of resolutions they know they won’t keep like dreams of weigh loss, more money, or the losing of some bad habit they can’t seem to shake. And somewhere in all of that we need to squeeze in the top 12 things to leave in 2012. Starting with number… 12. Donald Trump If there was one person who I wanted to tie up and gag it was The Donald!! This man loves to rant on and on and on. News flash Donald: Obama will be written in history as the 44th president of the United States. Get over it already!!! Somebody get the rope just in case please. 11. JayZ and the Illuminati This has been going on for way too long;… [Read more]

1. Lists for the sake of lists – Let’s start with the title of this very post because we are guilty of it here too sometimes on The Hall… we have lists, granted they are good lists but we try our best not to go overboard – I wish other sites would do the same. I won’t lie it is the easiest filler for days when we simply have nothing to talk about; just think about it. If you come up with nothing but lists for your magazine/blog then you will have an endless stream of content. Sadly there are spaces who make huge money off of advertising who use the “X something that XYZ” title on a majority of their posts. Readers I have to ask you are lists really that great for reading? 2. Posting pictures of dead bodies in tragedies – Lots… [Read more]

test

What a year… no worries I won’t violate my own rules on Politics by getting into that mess of 2012, but even beyond the First World problems of America it has been nuts on the reading and writing front. I enjoy reading almost as much as I do writing (and I love writing) so I did a secret experiment this year. For the first half of 2012 I read many feminist-tinged blogs, blatantly anti-man blogs, and ezines with a heavy female audience. Why you may ask? Well I wanted o see what the other side had to say on a daily basis. The results of my lurking lead to some pretty sobering conclusions about the war of the sexes. I learned that men in general are looked down upon in many ways like children. Many women of the internet come off as angry, demanding, and… [Read more]

Welcome to the best top (insert number) list of hot women for 2012 on the internet. Our list rocks because, well, we like a lot of women from all different ranges of race, profession, height, you name it. So don’t think this is your standard rundown of Victoria Secrets Models and women who appear on Vanity Fair. No, this list came from THE BOYS, a collective of men who truly represent men and not some writer with a blonde fetish doling out his celeb crushes. The criteria we based our choices on was popularity, buzz, and the attitude men have towards these women’s looks, interviews, and/or movies and shows that they starred in. This top 15 isn’t here to force a certain hawte down your throat so if your favorite lady didn’t make it don’t take offense. This is the Hall of The Black Dragon’s list of… [Read more]

Researchers found that evolution is the answer to why women play games and treat men cruelly in and out of relations. According to a new study (reported in the European Journal of Personality) women play hard to get in order to test a man’s commitment. The “game” is meant to see how much a man will put up with so as to convince the woman that he will stay around after pregnancy. The study, which utilized over 58 strategies that women typically use on their men, asked 1,500 men and women which strategies worked best. The results from this study reported that women are more successfully when they: Appear highly self-confident Talking other people Withhold sex Talk with sarcasm Always sound busy Tease Flirt with other men Turn down the first few dates Editor’s Note: I don’t know about this study as any of the above… [Read more]

an assortment of guns

With the new upsurge in violence in the news this past year Americans have found themselves looking for answers to the ultimate question of “how do we stop this?”. Some look at guns as the problem–with the increase of ownership directly reflecting on the number of incidents–others (that own guns) fire back that people are the problem and a gun is no different than a sword, knife, or baseball bat. When one looks at the entire picture from a pragmatic angle one realizes that there may not be an easy solution and the people perpetuating the crimes would not necessarily be deterred if there was a harsher penalty levied for gun ownership. One may even argue that tougher laws would serve to punish those who are responsible with their weapons and not the criminals committing the crimes. What about self-defense as a solution? I personally… [Read more]
