There is one thing about being used… it never feels good. When you feel used you become very resentful of the user and it grows inside of you to the point where you need to remove them from your existence as quickly as possible. It makes you feel cheap, ignorant, and gullible, and it makes them seem like a cruel, selfish person with a questionable moral sense. It is like a vice squeezing your throat to prevent your breathing, and you want to either confront them about it or cut off all ties. Many people are using their loved ones without even realizing it. Within their minds they have an alternate reality where their good thoughts about the person they are using are enough to make it okay. They think “he/she knows I love them, and whenever they are in jeopardy I will make sure… [Read more]

If I could sum up 2013, I would say that it was a year where the old racists reminded the younger (and more liberal) generation that they won’t be leaving anytime soon. It was a year where the divide between men and women widened into a massive chasm, and it was a year that our boys were forgotten. 2013 made us focus more on Miley’s young buttocks than on the men and women in our military that are fighting and dying even now. We somehow ignored a great Medal of Honor recipient in lieu of Beyonce television 24/7/365. It was not a very good year. Did you find yourself caught up in the hype when people posted Onion articles as if they were real? Did you share a Morgan Freeman photo with the words RIP assuming it to be Nelson Mandela? Are you of the… [Read more]

Quite often we are reminded of the hate and loathing that we as a people have for fakers, show-offs and loud mouth whiners. We hate them so much in fact that those of us that have earned the medals, the battle scars and the 3-level house feel inclined to hide it lest we be treated with the same disdain as the big-mouths next door. Why do we take modesty so far? Well the way that the public views celebrities is a good indicator of why many men and women hide their “medals”. People dislike the rich as a whole, they run comparison checks with their own lives when a friend or loved one has some success, and then they react in a way to make themselves feel better. It reminds me of those drivers who make dumb decisions then when they see that you are… [Read more]

Are you lost, confused, and unsure where to go in this whole spectrum of dating, loving and fitting into a world of gender confusion? The following are my eight tips to set you straight if you want to be a man that marches to the beat of his own manly drum. This list isn’t for the panderer, or the man that wants to be everything women tell him they want him to be. This list is for the man who wants to be an attractive and confident man to any and every one. 1. Be comfortable with being an adult male Sure your job doesn’t have a fancy title and your duties come off as mundane at best. This doesn’t mean that you will look any more impressive to change the title and lie about what it is that you do. If you want a… [Read more]

It’s the time of the season when we are hiring new talent at my job and I have been fortunate in being one of the people ushering in the interviewees. As a unit we scan hundreds of resumes, checking out who should match and who would end up wasting our times because they had little experience with our software. When we have a good number, we make some phone calls and bring them in for the interviews. One thing you learn when you interview people, it’s  that the worst tends to come out for those who buckle under societal pressure. You get the liar who thinks he can freestyle the interview by pretending to know anything you ask; you get the nervous wreck who rifles off a ton of personal details that no boss should know, and you get that one, fake cocky applicant. The… [Read more]

One of the popular tropes in movies is the one where a masterful genius is shown to be the arch-villain up until the end when we learn that there is someone in the shadows pulling his strings. For the entire hour and a half you watch this master of strategy put the hero on his/her toes and you grow a bit of admiration for him/her. But what happens when the big reveal is shown and you learn that this “master” is nothing more than a deadly marionette? You feel disappointed with the movie and you lose respect for the villain. One of the most popular villains to lose my respect was Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. Bane could fight, he could deliver a powerful speech and he was always a step ahead of Bruce Wayne. Bane had an ideology and carried out his plans… [Read more]

When I went to College some of the best advice I got was from an older nerd than ran a bulletin board system prior to the internet that you are enjoying right now. I was one of the guys that was a senior in high school, hooking up my 14 400 baud modem to an old Packard Bell with a 4-color CGA monitor playing online, text-based competitive games. One day the host of one of these channels had a chat with me and I told him I was going to College in a few months. The advice he gave me was to force myself to be social and talk to as many girls as I could because never again would I find myself in a place with such an abundance of diverse women. Now as a man that is running strong in the rat race,… [Read more]

Recently with the huge distraction coming out of Miami dealing with the alleged locker room bullying, it became very evident to me how people are easily led. One of the reasons that evil men are easily put into power is due to the public’s laziness in researching facts, awaiting the full story, and thinking objectively. Why do we find it so hard to wait for the full story whenever something happens? This culture of reaction is one that keeps websites like TMZ paid, and allows for any media space to write opinion pieces knowing that it will be taken as fact by the majority of readers. We all blame the big bad “media” on our societal issues but are we doing enough to change that influence? Short answer is no, and when a one-sided story comes out and the public rushes out to grab their… [Read more]
