8/10    I'm the person who took care of my gf's sister's cat while she was
        away with the Air Force. In return, I asked her to check on my
        sons for a week while I was away. She skipped a day (and committed
        a lie of omission when she didn't say so but admitted it when
        questioned) and the upstairs bedroom was full of my sons' diarrhea all
        over everything (wooden floor, bookcase, blankets) - which is not
        typical for my litter-trained sons, but probably a result of my
        absence - but she didn't clean it up or even mention it to me. I
        got in at 11pm at night and spent 2 hours dealing with that. After
        I cleaned her place spotless I'm VERY pissed.
        \_ I keep a mental blacklist of people I never ever want to be in
           contact with. Very few people get on that list. It sounds like
           this person needs to be put on this black list. FYI, for example,
           this junior high "friend" that I invited to the wedding said he
           would come to the wedding. I even confirmed it the week before.
           I reserved 1/2 of a table, or $300 worth. My wedding came, and
           1/2 of that table was empty. I called him up a few days later
           and he said he totally forgot because there was this really
           important church retreat. Then he came up with a bunch of excuses,
           said he was sorry, and said he would reimburse. Then later on
           he said "I don't think it should cost $300, ours was really cheap."
           I never heard from him again. He is on my blacklist. He sounds
           like the same breed as your gf's sister.
        \_ I don't hang out with my friends who have kids anymore. Once
           they started the family nucleus, nothing outside matters anymore.
           You're an outsider. You're of someone who could help them. Period.
        \_ You know, sometimes you do meet people who are irresponsible or
           who just don't care. There's not much you can do. Some people are
           just like that, just learn to not deal with these people. I've
           learned to ignore some of my family members who are totally
           wackos. Yeah, they're family... SO WHAT? If they can't help
           you, they can't.
           \_ I have a bunch of crazy and irresponsible relatives, including
              one who has been in and out of prison and another who is a
              crazy (literally) drug abusing homeless guy. I have learned over
              one who has been in and out of prison and another who is an
              insane (literally) drug abusing homeless guy. I have learned over
              the years not to trust them and consider my help to them to
              be charity, nothing more. With friends, I would expect some kind
              of reciprocity, but with a charity case, you just help them and
              don't expect anything in return except gratitude.
        \_ Yea, that sucks.  Get someone else next time, or kennel them.
        \_ I totally agree with you.  It's not too much to expect a threesome
           orgy in return.
           \_ that's not an orgy.
              \_ Good orgies have an even ratio of men/women present.  It's
                 just simple orgy etiquette.
        \_ Hey douchebag who changed 'cats' to 'sons' -- get a life.

        Yes!!! Women are getting prettier and prettier due to evolution.
        "In men, by contrast, good looks appear to count for little, with
        handsome men being no more successful than others in terms of numbers
        of children. This means there has been little pressure for men
        appearance to evolve."
        Yes!!!! I have a chance to win at the reproductive game of
        human race!                     -average looking overweight sysadm
        \_ I believe it. Look at the old paintings of women. Yes, beauty
           ideals evolve, but so many of those women were downright homely.
           The men in the paintings look similar to men now.
           \_ Actually old paintings indicate that women were fat. Thanks
              to media, they are skinny malnutritioned sticks, the way our
              culture want them to be.
              \_ You are talking about Rubens, but not every painter portrayed
                 women that way. I am not talking about their bodies anyway,
                 but their faces. There are a lot of paintings by people
                 like Gainsborough done in the 1700s which depicted the
                 wealthy. The subjects were not fat. However, neither were
                 most of them attractive. Some of them were quite, but that
                 seemed to be more the exception than the rule. I think
                 better nutrition, and possibly evolution, has lead to
                 more attractive women certainly.
                 \_ The wealthy ate better than the poor, and the wealthy
                    had painters. Eating better-->getting fat-->getting more
                    pictures. As for nutrition and evolution, IMHO better
                    healthcare in general explains it all. You ever wonder
                    why the average American has better looking teeth than
                    the British? It's because Americans spend much more on
                    dental care than any other developed nations.
                    \_ Did you completely ignore my comment that the subjects
                       did not appear to be fat? Ugly, maybe. Fat, no.

        Yeah, like you can get action if you couldn't even keep your job.

           myself full time to it.

4/17    what is this Wolverine leads the X-Men crap in the Marvel
        Wolverine cartoons?  I call shenanigans
        \_ Who would you rather have, lame-o four-eyes Cyclops?  That
           would be like putting Geordi in charge of Enterprise security
           insted of Worf.
           instead of Worf.
           instead of Worf. -stmg
           \_ In all X-Men comics, its always Cyclops leading the team,
              with Wolverine always being annoying and emotional and tortured
              and short.
                 \_ I know four-eyes leads the X-Men in most of the comics.
                    That is exactly why I never liked X-Men.  -stmg
                    \_ I dunno, Wolverine never struck me as the leadership
                       type.  Of course, they always make Cyclops out to
                       be kind of a dickweed, I wouldn't want him as a boss
                       \_ The best analogy is that Prof. Xavier (aka Capt.
                          Picard) is in command and that the X-Men team that
                          goes out on a mission is like an "away team." I'd
                          personally prefer an away team lead by Wolverine
                          (~ Worf) than one led by four-eyes (aka Geordi).
                          But the comparison between Geordi and Cyclops has
                          some limits.  Geordi is actually a decent guy.
                          Cyclops has no redeeming qualities. -stmg
                          \_ I don't think the Geordi analogy works at all,
                             Gerordi's job is technobabble, which is more
                             like Beast.  I also don't recall Worf being
                             as emo as Wolverine.
                             I haven't followed Xmen closely, but I do recall
                             a couple of almost Spock-Kirk like scenes with
                             Cyclops and Wolverine.  Wolverine being the
                             emotional one who charges in and saves the day
                             against the protests of the logical one.
              \_ Untrue: the X-men have been led by Storm, Nightcrawler, and
                 even Rogue. In the cartoon, Prof X and Jean Grey have been
                 blown up or otherwise incapacitated, so Wolverine has taken
                 up the mantle.

         \_ No, they smell like overpaid narcisists.
            \_ Check out "Sam."
             \_ Nope.  Do you actually know anything about Asperger's
                beyond every geek on the net's self diagnosis?
        \_ Page 4 of 7: '... one-quarter of the site's sugar daddies
           (including married ones) are looking for male 'babies' ..."
           Wow!  I didn't know % of gays among rich males are that high.
           \_ I'm sure if you put your thinking cap on for just a second,
              you can come up with a few good reasons why that may not be
              a valid conclusion.
           \_ Gays tend to have higher incomes than straights.
              \_ If gay people ran the world, there would be less wars,
                 useless regime changes, and empty Mission Accomplished.
           \_ Old straight guys have less problem attracting young women
              without having to pay for it. BK is pathetic, btw.
              \_ Uh, they'll likely be paying for it, whether through formal
                 arrangement or otherwise.
                 \_ Uh, why do old straight men have an easier time time dating
                    younger women than old gay guys have dating young men?
                    Young gay men don't want money?
                 \_ This still doesn't explain the difference between the
                    dating prospects of older straight guys vs. older gay
                    guys. Young gay men don't like money?
                    \_ I said nothing about that. Homosexuality still has a
                       stigma attached to it, and rich gay men are less
                       likely to be openly propositioning young men. The
                       relative anonymity a website like this affords
                       can therefore be attractive.
                       \_ That can be true also. But it is still easier for
                          an older (maybe I should say middle aged) straight
                          guy to date a woman in her 20s than for a gay guy
                          to have a similar arrangement. Though maybe this is
                          just because of the fact that the straight couple
                          can get married -- paying for it otherwise -- in your
                          \_ No, I meant the older guy will be shelling out
                             plenty (fancy restaurants, gifts, etc.) whether
                             or not he pays the woman a formal stipend or
                             whatever you want to call it.
                             \_ So you still have not explained why this does
                                not happen as much in the gay community.
                                \_ Happens all the time from what I can tell.
                                   My neighbors are gay and I go to a lot
                                   of their parties. The older, rich guy with
                                   the younger, hot companion who works as a
                                   personal trainer or hair stylist is a pretty
                                   common scenario.
                                   \_ I just realized that there is an
                                      alternative explaination and that is that
                                      there is more demand from older gay men
                                      for young guys than the similar
                                      arrangement in the straight world.
                                      Marraige explains this pretty well, since
                                      older married guys are less likely to
                                      \_ Don't know many older married
                                         guys do you?  Especially of the

                    okay, this is the motd, what am I thinking here...
                    \_ Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind.  Some short
                       term pain may be preferable to long-term unhappiness.
                       She might need a better-equipped guy, and he might
                       be happier with a woman who is happy with his
                       equipment.  I'm wondering if she was dishonest with
                       him or herself about the equipment issue before
                 \_ We have two kids.  She never complained before and she is
                    not complaining now either.  However, she has been showing
                    less and less interest in the last couple of years.  I am
                    sure I do well in all the other skills involved in the act.
                    less and less interest in the past couple of years.  I am
                    less and less interest in the past few years.  I am
                    sure I do well in all the other areas involved in the act.
                    So this is the only factor that I don't do well and can't
                    improve in a natural way.  --- OP

                          breeding after two kids.

6/27    the girl is visiting me and she called ahead and asked me if I had
        a pair of hair clippers.  Why would she ask such a thing?  we didn't
        agree to a suicide pact where I shave her head.  also why is it
        a 'pair' of clippers anyway?
        \_ I assume she means electric buzz clippers.  No idea why it's a pair,
           but since 'clippers' is plural it must be either a pair or a set.
        \_ "A pair of scissors".  My guess is that it was for historical
           reason.  Maybe first there was some tool call "scissor" which had
           one blade.  Then someone invented scissors by putting two blades
           together, hence "a pair of scissors".  Then someone invented
           clippers.  Even though there was no "clipper" origin, people still
           called it "a pair" because it worked like scissors.  Anyway that's
           only my wild guess.
           \_ I don't say "pair of hair clippers" I say "a hair clippers".
              Yes it looks stupid when I read it, but that's what I think
              most people say.  Also a pair of scissors is two scissor blades.
              Look at a pair of cooking scissors.  They will often be easilly
              seperated into two blades for cleaning/sharpening purposes.

                 is pretty hot though.  It does point out a glaring
                 inconsistency of the show, however.  If Cuddy is
                 *that* hot, she should have guys lining up to

                 \_ I was thinking the same thing.  She must be in her late
                    30s at least.  She'd have to be in the gym constantly
                    and exist strictly on oatmeal to have abs like that at

           \_ what if you take synthetic testosterones?
              \_ A vasectomy doesn't terminate testosterone production. It just
                 keeps the sperm cells from mixing into the seminal fluid (the
                 vas deferens, the tube that delivers the sperm cells is
                 severed, a section removed and the ends sealed), and the cells
                 are reabsorbed into the body. The going hypothesis about
                 senility is that sperm cells that can't exit the body are
                 attacked by the immune system and that the body starts
                 attacking cells in the brain as well.

2007/10/8-9 [Recreation/Dating, Health/Men] UID:48265 Activity:high
10/7    Hi.  Original not getting laid guy here AKA motd bitter no sex guy.
        The girlfriend has stopped shaving, anything, and has informed me that
        shaving is just thinking your body in its original form is
        disgusting, and she doesn't think her body is disgusting, therefore
        she will never shave again.  Except for her toes.  She hates how
        hair gets caught in her socks, so she'll continue to shave the top
        of her toes.  Day 190 or something stupid of not having sex.
        \_ Every AFC on csua even knows to leave.
           \_ What does AFC mean?
        \_ Let us know when she's left you because she has a new gf.  Until
           then stick a fork in it; your story is done.
        \_ Neither my ex-gr nor my wife shave their pussies.  The hair blocks
           my view when I thrust, but I just part the hair to the sides with
           my hands.  The bigger problem is when the hair gets into my throat,
           but I just quietly get it out with my finger and continue as if
           nothing happened.  I wouldn't force them to shave unless they
           want to.
           \_ Do they shave their legs and armpits though?
              \_ Yes.  -- PP
                 \_ You know OP is referring to all body hair, not just
                    vaginal hair, right?
           \_ I think shaving all the hair down there is a bit weird, but
              some trimming is nice so that when a leotard or bikini is
              worn it doesn't look so bad.
              \_ I think most American (porn-loving) guys like it, because
                 most female American porn stars except those in the hairy
                 genre shave all their hair down there.  For me, either
                 shaving or trimming is fine.  -- PP
        \_ Original poster here.  yes I meant ALL body hair.  geez.
           \_ Hairy can be sexy, but you've already pointed out that she's
              not doing this (or anything) for your titillation. Unless
              the rest of the relationship is so incredible as to counter
              your blue balls, call this one a wrap and move on.
              \_ By now the story can't be true.  He's getting nothing, he's
                 hating it and he's still there for no reason.  It's a long
                 running joke or troll of some sort.  I think now he's digging
                 for the anti-anti-feminine vote.
                 \_ Sadly, i am 100 percent serious about everything I have
                    posted.  - original not getting laid bitter no sex guy
                    \_ Ok, then why are you still with her at day 190 or
                       whatever you're at now?
                 \_ I know lots of people who are this ornery. -dans
                    \_ Maybe, but I've yet to see any of these guys explain
                       why they're still 'with' these girls despite asking
                       several times.
                       \_ There's a lot more to finding a partner than having
                          a warm place to stick your dick at night.
        \_ The only way to win this battle is to gross her out even more. Stop
           bathing. Don't shave anymore and grow out a terrorist beard. If
           she's going to stop being sexy for you, then why should you care
           about looking good for her?

9/6     psb brought a second hand to the task of maneuvering tom's
        oversized erection. It felt highly strange to feel his
        huge cock filling both of his hands, more like a tennis
        racket handle than a human penis.  He rubbed its underside
        with both his thumbs, pushing them the length of it,
        then choking the swollen purple head. tom’s knees buckled.
        He braced himself clumsily against the shower stall. psb
        suppressed a laugh as he again gripped tom’s by the base
        of his cock and slowly stroked him. The nine inch long penis
        felt alive in his hands, like a small animal. Again it
        jerked. He released it and it glanced off his ear. tom fell
        forward. He reached for the edge of the sink to better brace his
        weakened body.

        “Sorry. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. That feels incredible

        psb smoothed the hair back and rubbed his ear. With his other
        hand he immobilized his persistently wagging pole.

        “That’s okay honey.” he smiled. tom looked spent already,
        hunched over, barely able to stand. Yet his cock surged with
        intensity in his hand.

        specifically, my cock and balls.  I was sporting a four foot
        penis as big around as my leg while flaccid, which grew to an
        astounding seven feet while erect.  The thing was resting on the
        ground in front of me at the moment.  Of course, what giant penis
        would be complete without giant balls? The best I could relate them
        to was globes from a typical elementary school classroom.

8/28    Milton Berle

        Most people remember late comedian Milton Berle for his
        performance as an Alzheimer's patient bonding with Steve Sanders
        on "Beverly Hills 90210" or as a 1950s dress-wearing yukster.
        But Berle's biggest legacy may be the one between his legs.
        Berle was rumored at one point to have the biggest
        package in Hollywood. Even a memorial tribute following his death was
        riddled with penis jokes, says The New Yorker. "We are here to
        honor Milton Berle, who passed away on March 27th," comedian
        Freddie Roman eulogized. "On May 1st and May 2nd, his penis
        will be buried." has this telling anecdote: "The famous story goes
        that whenever anyone challenged Milton to compare sizes, he would
        have the other man go first, and then only pull out enough of his
        own to beat the other guy. Berle never denied the rumors
        because, hey, what guy would."

8/23    what are SSRI?
        \_ Prozac, Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Paxil, etc.
        \_ it's FDA approved as an anti-depressant, but like all medications
           out there this SSRIs have been prescribed for countless other
           uses as well.  It is not uncommon for SSRIs to be used for
           anxiety (public speaking, talking to women, stress),
           hyper-activity, sleep aid, LIBIDO SUPPRESSANT, shyness,
           OCD, etc. If you think you may need it, chances are it'll
           profoundly affect your life.
        \_ Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, etc.
        \_ I looked it up in wikipedia.  It looks like a family of anti-
           depressant drugs which can have the side effect of helping men
           who have premature ejaculation problems.  I didn't see anything
           in there about it being prescribed as the poster the other day
           was talking about but hey it's just a wiki article.
           \_ Most (all?) SSRI's are known for some percentage of users
              experiencing reduced libido.
              \_ Everything I know I learned from Wikipedia.  (Oh God, please
                 save me!)
                 \_ I wasn't quoting from Wikipedia.  I actually have
                    considerable background on the subject. -pp
                    \_ I know.  I wasn't saying your thing was wrong, I was
                       saying I really don't know what I'm talking about since
                       I'm only quoting WP.  It would be hard for someone to
                       know less than I do about it.
                       \_ Ah.  The Wikipedia article on SSRI's is actually
                          reasonably accurate and well-written.  Learning
                          is fun. :) -pp

8/17    What is the difference between being celibate and abstinence?
        \_ One is "I'm celibate thus I'm closer to God!" and the other
           one is "I've tried abstinence but it doesn't work when I'm
           too horny."
           \- Dont consider this authoritative but after some reflection:
              1. celibacy AFAIK is only WRT sex, as with chastity.
                 abstinence is potentially broader.
                  \_ I think you may have that reversed. I see celibacy
                     used often about priests, implying a broad absence
                     of romance.
                     \- i dont understand what you are saying.
                        a doctor might say "you need to abstain from sex
                        for 2 weeks after your penis operation". he would
                        not say "you need to remain chaste/celibate".
                        note that chastity/chaste can refer to not having
                        extra-maritial sex. again the precise or theoretical
                        differences arent that important since actualy
                        differences arent that important since actual
                        use is pretty loose and defined by context.
                        \_ I think I misunderstood your post, nevermind.
                           (didn't take it in context as a reply to parent)
              2. celibacy i believe usually suggest a some kind of external
                 motivating factor, usually religious obligation or
                 recommendation. abstinence might slightly more suggest an
                 internal "lifestyle choice".
              3. in practice, they are all pretty synonymous. how many people
                 distinguish between "persuade" and "convince" for example...
                 a case where even people who know the differnece dont bother
                 with it.
                 even people who know the difference dont bother with it.

        \_ After unions and WWII, manufacturing jobs overpaid for low-skill work.

           country.) Getting an education and a job in industries that are America's

           \_ Getting an education in what? Software? Bad idea. Medicine?
              Bad idea. I guess we'll all have to be attorneys, huh?
              Seriously, what would you recommend an 18 year old be
              educated in? I can't think of anything that's not threatened
              except maybe soldiers, FBI, NSA, and such.
              \_ Nursing, surgery, auditing, anything that requires the person
                 to actually be onsite in America to do the job. There should
                 be a huge demand for medical professionals as the population
                 ages, but you don't want to be in something like radiology,
                 that can be outsourced. ER doctor is probably safe.
                 \_ I am not sure medicine is a good place to be. I
                    understand your point, but the reality is that the
                    American standard of living is not sustainable no
                    matter the profession. Global competition will whittle
                    away at the standard of living in all Western
                    countries in all professions - even doctors, lawyers,
                    and engineers. So why is it worth it to spend an
                    ever-increasing amount of $$$ on education when it
                    doesn't guarantee you anything? If only the strong
                    will survive, then I think the strong will make it no
                    matter what initials follow their names. Bill Gates
                    never even graduated college. I am not worried about
                    the strong. I am worried about Joe Blow Cal State grad
                    and his some-college wife. What will become of them?
                    Will they have to move to Calcutta to find a lifestyle
                    they find satisfactory? Will some Eastern Euro doctor
                    move here to a 2 BR house and think he has it made,
                    such as is happening in Spain? I don't weep for the
                    MDs driving Acuras instead of Porsches, but it will
                    have a trickle down effect. I think the idea that
                    getting an education somehow makes one "safe" or helps
                    ensure one of maintaining his current lifestyle
                    (forget about improving on it) is dated. I think an
                    education is for personal satisfaction only at this
                    point, because, really, how often does the average
                    employee at the average firm employ the depth of his
                    education? I know quantum mechanics. Maybe some other
                    guy doesn't. It won't help me sell any more cars or
                    perform more audits or even stitch up any more ER
              \_ My point was getting a college degree for the knowledge economy
                 vs.  HS diploma or drop out. Still only 25% get a 4 year
                 degree. There won't be enough low-skill, lower middle class
                 jobs to soak up the rest.
                 Manufacturing jobs have actually increased last 2 years, as
                 they find niches, do high value, quick turn-around work. Our
                 economy is huge and will adapt, but 25% with bachelors degree
                 will not cut it for 21st cent.
                 \_ I see. I agree with that. However, what I am seeing is
                    that even people with graduate degrees are struggling
                    to maintain a middle-class lifestyle. You almost need
                    to be a two income family with both spouses having
                    a graduate or professional degree just to have the
                    standard of living a motivated high school graduate
                    had just 40 years ago. I do not see education as being
                    the answer. I think we are actually overeducated as
                    it is for the numbers and types of jobs available.
                    Many of my colleagues have PhDs and find themselves
                    overqualified or "stuck" in jobs that they did not need
                    a PhD to do.
