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]
Time and time again I run into men and women that have big dreams but lack the ability to set them in motion. To them, people who move on their ideas have a special gift; more drive, and more education. I don’t think that this is true. Many times an idea being made into a reality has to come from you breaking ground and attempting to build–even if it’s completely wrong. What I have found is that as you build upon it, the people that know how to do it correctly will help you out in correcting your approach and when you have it built incorrectly, you will have no qualms with tearing it down and trying again. The biggest part in all of this is that you put forth the effort. “A brilliant idea with no execution is worthless” Have you ever met someone… [Read more]
If you are a modern gentleman, one of the things that you will stay on top of is your personal appearance and this extends from looks to your living environment. Mess and clutter has been a stereotype of men that goes back a long ways; it reasons that men’s carefree attitude towards life leads us to becoming slobs in need of a woman to help us clean up. Knowing more than a few women that are slobs along with men that keep their pad together, this stereotype is false but many people do struggle with keeping their homes in order. What can you do? Well the number one thing to keep in mind when taking on the discipline of cleaning up, is that it is always better to do things “right now” rather than “later on”. When you wake up, spread your bed “right now”…. [Read more]
Notorious B.I.G. had a saying/song that became a big slogan in the mid 90s of “Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems”. The whole idea of the statement is that the more money you acquire the problems you will acquire as well because of what people expect from you because of the acquisition of money/success. This hip hop moniker is something that not only holds true for the people around you but also for yourself. All of those things we see in this world aren’t what they seem to be. We wish and want so many things but at what cost are we willing to get those things. Do we really even want what we think we want? One of the things I have known but began to understand more everyday is that everything that glitters isn’t gold and that many of us are caught up in our… [Read more]
Is your penis size an issue? Do you desire an epic trunk that swings ever so low from betwixt your legs? Well, don’t believe the hype men, the majority of us aren’t self-conscious, porn-star envious, losers that are desperately seeking the elixir to penis enlargement. Turns out that over half of the men out there are good with what their maker made them… this of course makes me happy to hear. The following Infographic was done by Justin J. Lehmiller of The Psychology of Human Sexuality (originally shared here) and shows that men tend to be more satisfied than dissatisfied with their penis. Most articles would have you thinking that most men are limping around feeling inadequate right? Good thing for us that the truth always comes in at one time or the other, and as you can see, it isn’t as daunting as it has been sold.
There you are in a dystopian future where sex leaves you marked with a line on the underside of your arm. The only way to avoid more marks is to keep having sex with the same person, since the mark comes with every new sexual encounter. How much different would we be when it comes to sleeping around, infidelity and player rank? Many men go into relationships hoping that the love of their life has a minimal sexual track record. We don’t take into account that the one partner our lady had probably slept with her over 100 times but we push to know if there has been multiple partners. If the mark existed in society then the lies that women feel pressured into telling about their sexual past would diminish greatly. The men who push to have this information would be forced to show… [Read more]
The Nurse is probably one of the most misunderstood, often-ignored positions in the medical field. You would think that with the number of shows that pay homage to this profession that we would understand their duties but the only thing I know about a nurse is that Greg Focker (played by Ben Stiller) in Meet the Parents was a male one… okay I know a bit more but not much. Hmm there was that one Candy Stripers movie that used to come on all the time… Anyway. Go ahead and ask 10 people what a nurse’s duties are and I guarantee you get 10 different answers. We are ignorant and honestly not very curious about nurses. This becomes a bit of a problem when we become seniors and through the same attitude choose to leave our healthcare “up to the experts” and assume that nurses… [Read more]
There will be times that come along in a man’s life when the pressure of family, friends and society leads to the single life seeming inadequate. It’s quite unfortunate how nosy people can get and how much judgment is levied upon others when they don’t fit into the slot of “normalcy” that the rest of the mundane world has created for them. Whenever I get those sort of questions I either answer them honestly or tell that person to mind their own business and not worry about mine—depending on who it is—but I understand that my frank attitude is not one that many of you have. One thing that I want to bring across to you young men out there who have felt the need to lie to long distance parents, friends and others that you are dating someone is that you will feel a… [Read more]
