After reading  so many articles about creeps like Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Louis CK, John Conyers, Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, and Donald Trump (among others, and probably several more to come) giving men a bad name I  got frustrated with my gender. The apparently ceaseless trickle of new celebrity creeps being named every week is frustrating and disheartening... Read more »

Things Your Annoying Friends can do or Appreciate on a Deeper Level Than You

<strong>Sports</strong><br><br> Like most men, I enjoy talking about sports. But everyone has that one (or more) friend who speaks with a ridiculous amount of authority on the topic. Among their go-to moves:
<br><br>
- When you complain about your team's poor performance, they correct you about what their problem REALLY is. <br><br>
- When a problem is identified they assert they've been saying that for a while, and imply that they clearly see things the coach doesn't and they would make a better coach. <br><br>
-Argue vigorously in un-proveable hypotheticals, usually with a historical backdrop.  Would Sandy Koufax's fastball be effective in this era? Would Wilt Chamberlain be as dominant in today's NBA? Would the Steeler's Steel Curtain defense contain Joe Montana's offense in it's heyday? Only your friend can say for sure, and it's certainly worth debating because we may one day find out once and for all. <br><br> Ok, no it's not worth debating because it's impossible to ever ascertain the answer.
Some topics bring out the most annoying traits in people. For instance, if you were on an airplane and could select which topic NOT to discuss with the stranger sitting next to you and your choices were: Monkeys, sandwiches, politics, or movies; I bet most people would opt to omit politics from the discussion.

8 Reasons I was Psyched to see Geraldo's Areolae in his Selfie

8 Reasons I was Psyched to see Geraldo's Areolae in his Selfie
I’ve always liked extremely stupid stuff and being psyched about seeing Geraldo’s areolae certainly continues that proud tradition. Don’t get me wrong- I despise things that are stupid. But extremely stupid stuff captivates me like how a tornado enthralls a storm-chaser, it’s destructive and scary but I crave the rush of its nearness. Not the... Read more »

4 Snappy Comebacks to Combat Dumb Crap you Hear Everyday

Street Accoster: Do you have a minute for the environment?   <br><br>        You: I do. But this isn't it.  <br><br> This is the best antidote to that ubiquitous passive-aggressive-guilt-inducing opening line, trust me.  Their question is NOT asking, "do you have A minute...?", it's asking if you have THIS EXACT minute, and that's a lot different. If THEY love the environment so much, wouldn't they work around your schedule? There are 1,440 minutes in a day, so the odds of them asking me during that exact minute are actually pretty horrible, and that's assuming I have a minute.

But nevertheless, they do exist. Want that kind of... Read more »
