Freedom of speech and expression
Posted: 1/30/2013 11:58:48 AM
If I walked around wondering who I'm going to offend next and how not too, I'd probably never say anything.

But I don't do that. People will be offended no matter what I say so I've stopped worrying about it.

Having worked for the Government, I know for a fact they're not responsible for 99% of the shit people accuse them of. There's no way to pull it off and not have everyone know.

Last time I checked, there was this little sign in most stores that says, "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone."

I don't get offended. I figure reality will take care of those who run their mouths.


I like that...The world has a way of sorting itself out.

@Funcuz +1

Go to a third world country and being stuck in traffic or some punk talking shit doesn't seem so important anymore.

It's damn hard to offend me. Just about the only thing that does it is bigots, and they're more annoying than offensive.

The point still stands though ... while a customer may choose where to spend his or her money , a business can't refuse service based on arbitrary criteria .


Uh, yes they can. A business owned by a private individual can refuse service to anyone for any reason they choose and even more-so, they don't have to tell you the reason, they can just tell you to leave. Just like I can stand in my yard and tell people not to walk in the grass, etc you get the idea. Arbitrary criteria is an opinion, one that I share but the facts remain. Businesses reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Whether it is morally right or wrong is an entirely different conversation.

@ rushluv

The whole watching tv cuts years off your life. Do you want to live forever? To tell you the truth, if there's ever a time when I have to rely on people to get everyday stuff done, like take a shower, nope, take me out back and do me a favor.

So you guys have fun being old, losing your minds and having to rely on others for things you've been doing your whole life by yourself. Me, I recognize when the fight is over and it's time to move on.

Mass Shooting at Colo. Movie Theater, 12 People Dead
Posted: 7/21/2012 8:58:04 AM
@Coma White

It can't be bought by civilians, so he probably made it. It probably wasn't tear gas, either. Tear gas sucks, enormously.... In Tear Gas (This is from personal experience), you can't breathe at all, your lungs stop working, breathing in is painful to say the least and your eyes water. The building also wouldn't be occupiable for some time. The crystals settle on the ground and just opening a door kicks them up again. You'd need a shop-vac kinda thing to get them.

From the news, it was probably regular smoke, like from a smoke grenade, which you can buy or make yourself.

Yes, happiness is a beltfed machine gun and about a thousand rounds. If you don't believe me, youtube Knob Creek.

Fighting for our freedom
Posted: 7/21/2012 8:47:14 AM
I love how you lump all vets into a few categories. Vietnam was PTSD and FTA. Are you one of those people that assume all returning vets are ****ed up in the head? Yes, I do believe someone would spit on returning vets. I've been called a few choice names by random strangers. Much like the rest of the world, the people here either love us, or hate us, there is no inbetween.

Just so you know, not everyone is a combat veteran. Of the 7%-8% of the American population that has EVER joined a military branch of ANY kind, approximately 1% of those actually fire their weapon in combat, even less for a hit.

I've heard stories from several vietnam vets, only two tell me they were spit on when they returned, one is a family friend and served with my father in Vietnam and as an Army veteran myself, I'd take his word over a strangers' any day of the week.

Fair enough, Landra.

I don't go up to women and say, "Hey, I haven't had sex in two years. Would you go out with me?"

The topic of sex always comes up and when asked, I won't lie. I can't lie, liars disgust me. Yes, that's a strong word, but it's accurate.

It's not necessarily the two years. It's I went from being a stud to a zero. My attitude towards people and women in general, changed.

I dunno, it's hard to explain without revealing more than I want to on the 'net and without coming across as weird. Indeed, in the two years I've taken my break, I've been labeled gay and the creepy guy because I would be the only guy at the parties making absolutely no attempt towards women. It's a weird situation I'm slightly ashamed of.

I'm 24 and I haven't been with a women at all, no kissing, no touching, etc in over two years.

After I got my divorce, I literally lost all interest in women. I had absolutely no desire for sex although I still would look at pretty women on the street etc, that's all I would do.

I've brought myself back from this recently to the point I have a desire, but now I have the most terrible luck with women. It's starting to suck, to say the least.

I understand telling women I'm divorced, but is telling them I haven't been with a woman in several years helping or hurting me?

Shaking before sex
Posted: 6/14/2012 2:40:39 PM
Gotta learn to calm yourself down.

What works for me, I close my eyes, interlock my fingers with a little pressure and take a few deep breathes, concentrating on my hands and nothing else. I had a guy scissorkick my knee from the side while playing soccer. Worst pain in my life next to when I threw out my back. Did that little technique and I was able to get up and walk off the field after a minute or two.

Sonmething to do with blood pressure and/or blood volume. Just an educated guess.

The penis uses blood to stay erect and with your heart racing it makes it harder.Do you have any strange bruises that came out of no where?

Does it happen any other time? Say, while playing sports or doing strenuous activity?

Would u still date a girl if she won't sleep with u?
Posted: 5/23/2012 12:30:28 PM

Then you also would have no respect for yourself and she shouldn't have any respect for you, either. If she has no self-respect for sleeping with you on the first date, then by the same token, you have no self-respect for sleeping with her on the first date.


I disagree. I'm not the one putting myself in a compromising situation. The ladies have the power to choose when and where.

If you sleep with me on the first or second date, I'll do it but I'll have no respect for you afterwards because you obviously have no respect for yourself. On the same note, if you wait too long, can you blame the dude for moving on?

I've waited a week or two for a girl to figure it out, after that I stop caring and move on.

Posted: 5/10/2012 2:27:09 PM
So, I like to shoot guns. I work on them, I build them, I hunt. I also conceal carry. The last time I brought this up to a girl I was interested in, I'm pretty sure it scared her away. We had been seeing eachother for about two weeks and I was always unsure how to bring the topic up. It really is a passion of mine so one day when we were just sitting bored, I brought it up.

I let her play with a few, answered her questions as honestly as I could, even invited her to go out on a date to the range but she declined and we slowly lost contact.

So, ladies. How can I approach this subject without beeing creepy/weird, etc? I was thinking maybe it just wasn't her thing.

Are men really willing to wait for sex?
Posted: 4/25/2012 2:55:53 PM

You might want to consider looking at this from the other side of things as well, OP.

Not as in assuming that "guys need sex," or any of the other destructive and insulting myths that are floating around like suspicious punch-bowl logs.

Instead, imagine that someone you are with appears to be in constant turmoil and doubt, and is calculating when to permit themselves to think about "awarding" you with sexual affection, based on some ephemeral idea which they cannot themselves actually describe.

When a woman says, as you do, that she has to wait a very long time before deciding to have that much intimacy, she is also saying that she has no desire herself about the guy. She isn't that attracted to him sexually. Not an encouraging sign, if the guy wants to end up in a relationship that contains a fair amount of sexual contact.

While it is surely true that some scummy guys use the accusation that you are frigid, as a manipulative tool to try to get you to have sex before you feel comfortable doing so, it is only a useful tool, because it can also be the truth.

I would also point out, as I think some have already, that counting "date one, date two, date three...okay F__K!" doesn't make any special sense, but that neither does it work any better to count to twenty instead.

Besides, a lot of us "nicer, more patient" guys, have an annoying history behind us, of women getting us to wait a long long time, and then announcing that since we showed so little real desire for her, that she's gone off with Raoul the Ravager.

Introvert vs. Shy/Anti-social
Posted: 4/25/2012 1:54:11 PM
The ability to make small talk escapes me and those that are constantly loud/dominating the conversation annoy me.

I'm an introvert through and through. Most of my time is spent alone or with a few friends but our conversation is actually stimulating and thoughtful. My experience says introverts are usually the most intelligent of the two.

I subscribe to, "If you don't have anything to say, don't say anything" and most people find that unsettling when I can be in a group full of people and not say a word.

why the two word emails??
Posted: 8/8/2011 10:12:50 PM
Probably because they're shy... or they aren't good with words... would you really scoff at and ignore the right guy, perfect for you just because he couldn't come up with the right words to say to you the first time he spoke to you?

Why are women always saying "I'm shy at first, but warm up quickly" and then say men need to write a first email with substance... can't men be shy at first too?

Is that all you want contacting you is the macho overly confident borderline arrogant men who will charm your socks off with the perfect first email... and then turn out to be total jerks... (like so many men you've met or dated even in the past)

Cut a guy a break once in a while and you MIGHT just be surprised and meet the greatest guy ever...

Do you want to grow old and lonely just because Mr Right tried to say hi and you blew him off because he wasn't absolutely "PERFECT" in his approach to you?

I'm not trying to be offending, just trying to stress a point so often overlooked by women so you see the valid argument.

Honestly... with that philosophy, you make yourself whats called "unapproachable"... rejection hurts men you know. Great guys who actually have a heart, feelings and emotions... can be hurt by women who are brutal with their rejection.

Add to that all the well written first emails that only end up read/deleted without a response... time after time and it can be difficult to keep doing it.

Give a guy a break... it might pay off for you one day.

OR you could try doing the first emails yourself... show us how its done...

Just my opinion :)

I was active duty for four years.

Personally, I've heard too many horror stories about military women to ever date one while I was in but now that I'm out dating a female soldier would give us something in common that very few people share.

It'd really be situation dependent just like anything else when you're dating.

Like the first guy said, if I wanted to contact you what would I say?

"Hey, I like your pictures, they're cool..."

The one thing that frustrates me about a lot of the women here is very rarely do they give anything good to start a conversation with. I know you won't sleep with me on the first date, I know you don't play games but what are your hobbies? What about your life has defined you as a person?

If you had to pick one thing about yourself that would explain you the most to a random person, what would it be?
