Resources Before Motherhood


Naturally enough, it takes many resources to raise a child.  Ideally one obtains them, or a commitment to provide them beforehand.  This all makes sense.  However, sometimes it goes oddly wrong.

Sometimes, women concentrate on the resources part, but forget the motherhood part.  In other cases, they try to obtain the resources, fail, have a child or two and forget about being a mother while still chasing those resources.

In both cases, priorities are mixed up.  In the olden days, this would be less likely to happen, as the constraints were tougher and women could not afford such silliness.

We have all seen cases where women spend their youth and beauty obtaining validation (a surrogate for resources) and real resources (food, drinks, trips) from men, after which they snag some poor fella.  With all of that (10-15 years) the focus is on resources, not motherhood.  Perhaps it should be expected with a young women in resource mode for so long, that she might have a rocky transition to motherhood.  Still, it is a poor excuse for being a so-so mom.

I recently came across a case where a woman who had a young teen with a father unknown was given a chance really do right as a mom.  Her, and the child were reunited via a generous person’s desire to help them out.  As it turned out, the mom relentlessly pursued trying to attract men with some money, while almost totally ignoring her kid.  With each child, you are only a mom once, so it would be best to make the most of it for the kid’s sake.

Apparently dysfunction happens.  The modern world seems to amplify it.  So sad.

    I love the old Chicago. And legs. “Legs” is code for butts. Gillette at least got that right: those are real butts.

    Dad would put us up at the Pearson Hotel in Chicago, where the Water Tower Place mall now stands. My little brother and I would take our mitts and a ball when we went to Chicago; the trips always included a White Sox game. So we went outside alone to a little park across the street from the hotel. Dad would open a window (odd, I know, a hotel where you can open a window fully). He would settle into a chair and read the big city newspapers. We had no chaperone because I was nine or 10. He said that he only went to the window to check if the pop-pop-pop and boy-chatter stopped.

    Fantastic! Pelosi and the Democrats figured they could just blame Trump for the shutdown, but it’s Pelosi and the Democrats who won’t come to the table. Pelosi took off during Christmas for a luxury Hawaiian vacation, her party went on a group trip to Puerto Rico, and now she and her harpies were hitting the road for a week on an international trip. Does it sound like she wants to find an agreeable compromise to open the government up? Meanwhile, Trump is hanging around D.C., ready to negotiate.

    “In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay, I am sure you would agree that postponing this public relations event is totally appropriate,” Trump wrote.

    “I also feel that, during this period, it would be better if you were in Washington negotiating with me and joining the Strong Border Security Movement to end the Shutdown.”

    Don’t be fooled by the “toxic” qualifier – all masculinity is toxic to these human weebles. What they call “toxic” is really the essence of freedom. It’s toxic all right, but to their goals, not ours. Masculinity means freedom from them and the puffy, non-binary utopia they dreamed up because that’s the only world in which such losers could be anything more than a sorry punchline.

    It’s a War on Testosterone, and we’re culturally surrounded. But that’s awesome. As Toxic Male Icon and Army hero, General Anthony McAuliffe of the 101st Airborne put it at Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge, “Men, we are surrounded by the enemy. We have the greatest opportunity ever presented an army. We can attack in any direction.” And Marine legend and Toxic Male “Chesty” Puller said something similar: “We’re surrounded. That simplifies our problem of getting to these people and killing them.” . . .

    The answer to the attack on toxic masculinity is to recommit to what they label “toxicity,” because what they call “toxic masculinity” is not about criminality or being a jerk. It’s about the basic premise of being a man, the role of builder and destroyer, engineer and warrior. They want to take what makes you special from you, so all you have are the scraps they choose to give you. And then they will own you.

    Do you want to be owned?

    Cue the SJWs liars to hop in to say that praising masculinity means celebrating rape and abuse and mindless criminality and mayhem. But everything leftists say is a lie, and so is this. The answer to rape and abuse and mindless criminality and mayhem is, of course, more masculinity – the confrontation of evil, and its destruction, by righteous force. And righteous force is a masculine notion.

  22. I wonder what she looks like with a dress on, cause I can’t see any value from this angle.

    There’s 4 women at work who I would say are all in the 45-55 age range who have all lost significant weight in the last year or two. Now credit where it’s due and all, but while they all look better, none of them look good, if you know what I mean. Two are married, so I’m sure their husbands are happier.

    This other woman, who I would guess is about 40, is the absolute Queen of the Yo-Yo dieters. She’s gained and lost at least 50-60 pounds 3 times in the last 4-5 years. I think the first weight loss goal was a last gasp at getting married by 35. She has a very plain face though, and her her hair is nothing special, so I think she was only a 5 at her peak back then. No offers appeared out of no-where and she put all the weight back on over the next 12 months or so. I don’t think she was a carousel rider early on, I just think she was just always a plain, frumpy girl who gave up and got fat and then it was too late.

    James O’Brien doesn’t understand international trade, that’s for sure. “Australian beef animals are raised on hormones” he said, or words to that effect. Well, 60% of them are not. This is why the EU, which will not import products from cattle given HGPs, still imports beef from Australia. After a brexit the UK would be free to ban HGPs as well. If the EU can trust Australia to send HGP-free beef, so can the UK (Mogg should have made that point). On the other hand, a post-brexit UK would be free to import HGP beef as well as HGP-free to give the consumers a choice. The HGP beef would be cheaper.

    O’Brien seemed determined to prove that the WTO wouldn’t work for the UK. But why wouldn’t it, when it works for most of the world? What makes the UK so precious, or weak?

    “Theresa May has left European diplomats in a state of “disbelief” following a series of phone calls to EU leaders in which she made no change to her demands despite her Brexit plan being voted down by a 230-vote margin this week.

    Senior EU diplomatic sources said that Mrs May’s unchanged stance was “greeted with incredulity” following a call with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Thursday night.

    “It was the same old story – the same set of demands – all unchanged despite the defeat,” said the source with knowledge of the calls.

    Mrs May is understood to have repeated the same performance in conversations with the French president Emmanuel Macron, the Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte and the Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, provoking what one source called “diplomatic eye-rolling” in Brussels.

    Two other senior diplomatic sources confirmed the contents – or lack of contents – of the calls to the Telegraph. “She hasn’t asked for anything new,” said the second source.”

    Horseman, The responsible trading countries have a good name and they look after it. It’s the same here in NZ as in Canada, if any producers fall short of the standard the big processors stop collecting. That idiot O’Brien doesn’t know what he’s talking about. This is what trading nations (particularly the resource-strapped net exporters) understand: they don’t play fair to be nice, they play fair because there is no alternative if they want to survive as an international trader. A good reputation is hard to earn and easy to lose. Nations such as Nigeria have never had it and probably never will.

    To the people of trading nations this is kindergarten level stuff. O’Brien should put on his nappies and go back to the creche. If he wasn’t such a prize prick I’d almost feel embarrassed listening to his crap.

    More than 40% of men today suffer from it—and their loved ones pay the price.

    It’s called “toxic masculinity,” and it’s the latest disease to plague the nation. It can affect every aspect of a toxic man’s life. Worst of all, toxic masculinity is contagious, so if you’re infected, you need to know right away so you can avoid spreading it to your friends and family.

    Are you or a loved one suffering from toxic masculinity? Know the warning signs so you can seek help:

    Even the faintest whisper of facial hair – If you have a mustache, schedule a check-up. If you find a goatee on your face, consider going into the emergency room. If you have a full-grown beard, well, it’s probably too late for you.

    A belief that men and women are at least a little bit different – Should you be infected with the cancerous idea that men and women are even the slightest bit different from one another, you could have toxic masculinity. If you’re a woman who believes this, then you suffer from an even worse disease called internalized misogyny.

    Eating meat on occasion – A disease like toxic masculinity can quickly change your diet. If you find yourself leaving your vegan avocado quinoa toast smoothies untouched in favor of wolfing down some bacon-wrapped bacon, you might have toxic masculinity.

    Yelling stuff about freedom and charging into battle wearing blue face paint – If you find yourself charging into battle against the English wearing blue face paint in the 14th century, you might be beyond medical help. Do all of society a favor and get yourself drawn and quartered so no one else catches this contagious illness.

    Being a man who doesn’t hate himself – This is the most telling sign. If you’re a biological male and you don’t hate yourself, toxic masculinity is already coursing through your veins. If there’s going to be any hope of recovery, you need to begin hating yourself today.

    If you or your man are showing one or more of these symptoms, contact your medical professional today. Get help, before it’s too late.

    OP – In the olden days, this would be less likely to happen, as the constraints were tougher and women could not afford such silliness.

    perhaps … though tracking back to even my great grandmothers, they were all screwed up, so i’m not so sure the ‘olden days’ was the panacea we’d like to imagine it was. perhaps, in the ‘olden days,’ it was easier to present the appearances of having the perfect family b/c divorce was rare? women had fewer choices regarding career so somewhat stayed in the home? idk. it’s just that every time i learn more about history, i discover there really wasn’t a perfect time back there.

    a friend from college was in town and we spent a few hours together this week. it was interesting. we haven’t sat down and talked just the two of us in many years. she married the year after i did, so she’s been married 30+ years. their youngest of four is now in college. husband has always traveled about 50% with his job, and she ran the home well. we were talking about the differences in culture when we were in college and in our 20’s to where our kids are now – and they ARE huge.

    and we talked about how the man needs to have authority in the marriage and home. she really balked at that, which surprised me. as we talked it out i realized that strong women who have worked hard to manage their homes and raise the children and done so with excellence, while their husbands were out working hard earning the living, don’t get these things we talk about out here.

    i tried to explain it to her … i said to her, “Your Husband never had to wonder if your children were fed or the laundry was done or if you were capable of caring for anything that came up at any given time. You weren’t out taking tennis lessons or at yoga class or having a women’s night out drinking while your kids were home hungry and your house needed cleaning, and you weren’t having an affair while he was travelling.” She looked at me like i’d grown horns and almost screeched, “No!” because she couldn’t imagine doing anything like that. i told her that IF she had, then her husband would have had to come in and step his foot down. but she was doing her job and doing it very well, so he was free to do his job and not worry about what she were doing.

    also, we talked about how she’s always respected him. this she did not understand b/c it’s always been there. i told her he’s a man of authority and to watch the way people react to him when he walks into a room. he’s a quite sort of man, but he’s a man of authority. she had a hard time understanding these things articulated until i explained how she’s living them.

    what was surprising about this conversation is that she and her husband have ALWAYS gone to church. that she didn’t ‘get’ a lot of this stuff shows that it’s still not being taught in the church (in general). she balked at genesis 3:16 where men are told to rule their wives. she did not understand that at all. her mind went straight to something like husbands beating their women and treating them like scum and equated that with ‘ruling’ … or that a woman can’t be left alone to manage the home without being micro-managed.

    and i realized that … somewhere in there … this is what women in the church believe. they are not being taught any different … meaning some of this is intentional and some is allowed to be assumed without correction. and they are certainly not being taught what the bible actually says.

    when i pointed out some of the bible verses, she looked at me and said with weight, “That’s controversial.” and then she said, “That’s a literal translation.”

    honestly … i was shocked. i’ve been out of the church for ten plus years, and it has not progressed at all … which i know from what i read, but to see it in one who is as intelligent as she was … shocking.

    sooo … older women are not teaching younger women these things. somethings some women learn by having grown up in a home with a mother like that, and some they naturally happen to fall into a relationship like that. but, overall, it’s not being broken down and taught. in my family only ick was passed down from mother to daughter – at least 3 generations that i know of. i stopped that mess.

    i’ll give my friend credit … she really listened to what i had to say and will spend a good amount of time pondering it. it will be interesting to see how she processes this over time. she wanted to make truth fit her world rather than adapting her world to Truth … and there’s a HUGE difference between the two … kinda like Cinderella’s step sister trying to force her big fat foot in that delicate little glass slipper; it just can’t be done.

    i don’t think men do this, in general? they see and know truth, and it’s true. they don’t try to force it to be something it’s not? and if something isn’t true, they don’t try to force it to be so?

You’re lying on the ground and then some man has you in his arms and you wake up and suddenly this wonderful machine fills your carcass with life as a machine goes to 120% max cruise power to get off. All the men do their thing. We talk for a moment before … peace. Because God says, “Go to sleep.” So you do. The pilot flies to where he’s supposed to go. Ho-hum. Just another trip.

    When another man, some stranger, has carried you in his arms, for no reason really, this Gillette hoo-haw is really, really, really bad stuff. We’re surrounded by men who will pick you up in their arms and carry you where you need to go. I’m not close to my local friends these days, because I’m private, but every single one of them would pick up a person in a bad situation and start walking toward help.

    God says, about her husband, “he will rule OVER you”.

    Rule you. Rule over you. There is a difference.

    She was made to be a help for Adam. She was part of what had been given to Adam, that he was to husband – all of it, including her – in the true meaning of the word “husband”.

    He was in need of help. She was to help him. But she can’t, unless and until he gives her tasks to do. He gives directions. She follows them if she is to be what she was created to be – a help, proper and fitting for Adam. In so doing she submits her will to his will. She focuses on his agenda rather than one hers. Pity the woman whose husband tells her he has no need of her help. How can she be what God says she was created to be in such a situation?

    Venue Tells White ‘Gender Fluid’ Comedian That He Can’t Perform Because His Dreadlocks Are A Form Of ‘Cultural Appropriation’

    According to its official website, Snowflake Comedy Club offers “safe” laughs with “no transphobia, misogyny, racism, sexism, homophobia or … fatshaming.” The group is also committed to featuring more female performers than male performers.

    When comedian Zach Poitras asked his friend Mathieu Sale (one of Snowflake Comedy Club’s organizers) if he could perform a piece regarding his own gender fluidity during the January 11 set, Sale spoke to the co-op, which came to the conclusion that Poitras wouldn’t be allowed to perform because of his hair.

    Ame’s food post: Everyone was 30 pounds lighter when I was a boy. But then, “processed food” mean Campbell’s Soup or peanut butter or sliced bread from the store. Pizza wasn’t sold with beer and gasoline. Soda pop was a luxury (in our house, Dad bought six 10-12 oz bottles on Sunday, which we ate with popcorn, for supper, watching Disney from the floor). My current emergency diet (which I’m on at present!), this reminds me, is to just eat Campbell’s Soup with quail eggs or duck eggs or regular chicken eggs, until the jeans are comfortable again. (1/2 pound a day, easy-peezy. Save a shit-ton of money and time, too.)

    But story is mostly one of growing girth, and it basically boils down to three factors: we’re eating less healthy food, we’re eating more of it, and we’re not moving around as much. According to a study published in 2012 in the journal BMC Public Health, Americans are now the world’s third-heaviest people, behind only the Pacific island nations of Tonga and Micronesia.

    The average American is 33 pounds heavier than the average Frenchman, 40 pounds heavier than the average Japanese citizen, and a whopping 70 pounds heavier than the average citizen of Bangladesh. To add up to one ton of total mass, it takes 20 Bangladeshis but only 12.2 Americans.

    Thirteen months before Trump’s trip and the British vote, few thought there was any possibility of a Trump candidacy or a Brexit referendum. The shock of Brexit in June and Trump’s victory in November has not been fully absorbed by British or American financial, media, and political elites in all the time since.

    MAGA list: 205 ‘historic results’ help Trump make case for 2020 re-election
    Watch Full Screen to Skip Ads
    As the gifted British political analyst Douglas Murray writes in National Review, “Instead of accepting the votes and trying to learn from them, elites have expended almost all their available energies trying to pretend that voters in 2016 were bad or duped. The past two years could have been spent trying to learn something or build something. Instead, the best minds of Left and Right have spent their time making claims of ‘racism,’ ‘Russia,’ and ‘Cambridge Analytica.’”

    The unlearning continues. Here, the government (actually, less than one-quarter of the federal government) is “shut down” over Democrats’ resistance to Trump’s demand for funding the border wall — er, barrier — which he negligently failed for two years to obtain from the Republican-majority Congress.

    Most Democratic politicians — and, polls show, many Democratic voters — favored border barriers before Trump’s victory. Now, they insist walls are “immoral” and ineffective.

    The struggle over Brexit is more complex in Britain. One thing is clear: the incompetence of Prime Minister Theresa May. May voted against Brexit and her pledge that “Brexit means Brexit” has been undermined, purposefully or by blunder, in her negotiations with the European Union.

    The EU’s unelected leaders are loath to see Britain leave, and insisted on terms including a 39 billion pound exit fee and a binding customs union with a backstop preventing Britain from leaving without EU approval: more like “No Exit” than “Brexit.”

    May’s deal was voted down Tuesday in the House of Commons by an astonishing vote of 432-203, the biggest rebuke for a government for a century, and she survived a no-confidence vote Wednesday by a pathetic 325-306 margin.

    What comes next is unclear. Under 2017 legislation, Britain leaves the EU next March 29 and, if there’s no agreement with the EU, will come under the low-tariff rules of the World Trade Organization. Elites predict this “hard Brexit” will produce dreadful economic woes. Their similar predictions after the 2016 referendum conspicuously failed to come about.

    In negotiations with the EU, May squandered the leverage the WTO alternative could have provided; now preparations are being hurriedly made by civil servants and, one suspects with more success, private businesses. Die-hard Brexit opponents seek to delay the March 29 leave date or to stage a second referendum. But either would require parliamentary approval, and the votes this week suggest that neither May nor anyone else commands a majority in the Commons.

    Die-hard resistance by outraged elites, breathtaking incompetence by elected leaders: It seems to be a pattern, on both sides of the Atlantic.

    The top guys are still getting good looking women, the 9-10s, but the pool of 6-8s has shrunk enormously, so that decent-looking men making over $75k often can’t find better than a 5 to marry.

    Generation low-T doesn’t seem to making too big a fuss over it quite yet though, as that would be toxic masculinity at its worst.

    Also, on the subject of hormones, why don’t teen-age/ early 20s girls have breasts? None of the fit young girls at the gym have more than a B-cup and few of them have that. Some have nice butts but are completely flat-chested.

    Abortion Named Leading Cause of Death in 2018 With 42 Million Killed

    Data compiled by Worldometers — a highly accredited site that collects official data from governments, scientific journals, and other reputable groups like the World Health Organization — revealed that as of December 31, 2018, an estimated 41.9 MILLION abortions had been performed over the course of the year.

    Those staggering statistics, when compared to the number of babies born in 2018, would suggest that nearly a quarter of all pregnancies worldwide (23 percent) ended in abortion. For every 33 live births last year, 10 babies were aborted.

    The Gillette ad rubbed me the wrong way. I, like the overwhelming majority of men, am absolutely disgusted by sexual assault, rape, bullying, so why throw it in my face as if my “gender” as a whole is toxic? Using terms like “toxic masculinity” is using too broad a stroke to address specific issues — issues which I agree very much need to be addressed, especially after all the crazy stuff we’ve seen in Hollywood. I am not against Gillette trying to start a conversation about assault, but I do have an issue with how they went about it.

    Masculinity can be a beautiful thing, just like femininity. We need to start celebrating each other, not tearing each other down. I also feel that suffering needs to stop being a competition. It shouldn’t be “women vs men.” There are areas where men have it terrible in society. It’s OK to look at those areas and acknowledge it, while also understanding that women have it terrible in other aspects of society. Neither one has to dismiss the other.

    Environmentalists make a useful villain because their malevolence can be obscured by a patina of reasonableness. Global warming and other manmade problems are going to end the world if we don’t do something — so just about anything is justified! But their villainy resonates with the masses because they actually do want to make life worse for people, for the most part.

    There’s a reason France convulsed in recent weeks, as middle-class protesters angered by taxes pushed for by environmentalists took to the streets. Environmentalists want to increase the costs of everyday goods and services by taxing carbon. They want you to fly less and to pay more, via offsets, when you do fly. They want you to stop eating meat. They want you to stop having kids. They want to deprive you of disabled-friendly plastic straws — and they’re coming for your delightful balloons next. They want to turn your corpse into food for plants because even the sweet release of death cannot save you from the environmentalist menace.

    There is no aspect of your life that environmentalists don’t want to tinker with, no realm immune from their meddling: just think of those poor small-businessmen whose livelihoods were destroyed by a deranged EPA bureaucrat in the 1984 classic “Ghostbusters.” On the plus side, this makes them pretty solid villains. Expect to see more of them in our big-budget films going forward.

My first trip to Italy, when I was seven, my grandmother made homemade soup and I didn’t like it. I wanted Campbell’s because it’s what I’d gotten used to.

    A little earlier, David Thompson reviewed a few pieces of commentary and noted the absence of any meaningful reference to things like BIOLOGY or TESTOSTERONE in the APA document. How could discussions of those nasty science-y topics help us understand men and boys?

    However, the word privilege occurs 19 times, and the word transgender no fewer than 60.
    As DeGroot points out, it seems unwise to redefine masculinity in order to flatter the resentments and insecurities of the fringe and maladjusted – say, “social justice” enthusiasts who consider themselves “marginalised” by expectations of competence, competitiveness and emotional self-possession. Or those who describe themselves as transsexual, non-binary or “gender non-conforming.” As if a proclivity for adventurousness or risk-taking, and a desire for achievement, were fundamentally a problem, something to be fixed. And it goes without saying that the writers of the APA’s guidelines would be unlikely to enjoy lives of comfort and status without a great many others embracing the values and inclinations – including ambition, stoicism and courage – that our self-imagined betters strive to pathologise.

    This quote from Andrew Sullivan surprised me a little:

    The ideological misandry is unmistakable. Check out the equivalent guidelines for women and girls, issued in 2007. Where stoicism is a bad thing for men, especially black men, here’s how it works for women: “In therapy, teaching, research, and supervision, psychologists are encouraged to become aware not only of the challenges that women and girls have faced, but of the resiliency and strength that women and girls have shown in response.” For men, “assertiveness” is part of a pathology; for women, it is a virtue.

    But one has to wonder – why are conservatives happier than Leftists, even when faced with the same situation? The answer is that conservatives and Leftists view life in opposite ways.

    In the words of Dr. Jordan Peterson, life is all about suffering. Our goal is to make the most of our time on earth while dealing with our tough surroundings and circumstances. We choose what to make of our lives.

    Conservatism is based on freedom and liberty. We don’t pick our life circumstances, but we are responsible for what we make of them. The conservative knows that humans have inherent, natural rights from God, making him or her inherently worthy and the master of his or her own life.

    Leftism, on the other hand, is based on the notion of oppressor and victim groups. According to the Left, society is to blame for a person’s problems. Somehow – whether it’s through racism, sexism, or bigotry – society is oppressing you, and you need a savior (which is almost always the government). How can a person possibly be happy when he or she believes that they are a perpetual victim?

    So who is the mastermind at Gillette who came up with the idea that the best way to sell men’s razors is to insult the customers with condescending liberal propaganda about “toxic masculinity”? Is pandering to the perpetually angry feminists in the media the way to grab positive “news” coverage? Is online buzz the goal? If so, it must also be Gillette’s goal to have its customers rush over to the Schick display.

    A century ago, Gillette ran ads in newspapers touting American soldiers of World War I using their product: the “clean fighters” of the Allied forces “fighting for clean ideals.” They were “millions of big, strong-limbed super-men … fighting to save Freedom.” Today, there are no strong-limbed men. There are bullies and sexual harassers in need of castration

    Hot on the heels of the toxic masculinity razor commercial debacle another corporate political decision has reared up. After Gillette insulted an entire gender, and a significant of its customer base, one liquor brand has stepped up to say, “Hold my Scotch!”

    Johnnie Walker has come out in support of The Women’s March, and it is not going well. The scotch brand has been an enthusiastic backer of the movement, seemingly oblivious to the various groups that have disavowed the March due to anti-semitic leadership. To date the NOW, NAACP, Greenpeace, Emily’s List, and the Southern Poverty Law Center are just a few who marched off. Things have become so toxic even the Democratic National Committee has cut ties.

    I agree, Larry. Your meaning was clear, although the wording was a wee bit too direct. I would’ve put it more diplomatically, e.g. “poor, buggered-up, twat-gobbling, barren-wombed, mono-titted tripple-nipple fuckwits.”

    On the food thing.
    I am 6-1 and fluctuate 5 lbs either side of 170.
    Meaning an average 5-5 woman is FOUR FUCKING POUNDS lighter than me!

    Really? Just really?
    Forget feminism, toxic massculinity, msm, etc. That alone would stop me from ever dating.

    Unless she could bench her own weight, run a under 30 min 5k, hay 200 acres in a day, tolerate temps from -30 to +30, and all being 20 years post wall….like me.

    Also look at the costs. Those with lots of meat, veggies, fruit…half or less of western and often with 2-3 extra mouths to feed.

    Imagine the savings to put towards credit card debt if one ate like a Pole or Mongol.

    Once, only once I briefly touched 190 two winters ago. My 34 jeans were tight so I weighed myself which I never do. No diet just slowed the soda and beer, cut back the carbs. Viola.

    If my 32s are loose I eat, if my 34 are tight I shut my mouth. Simple.

    THE FIRST TIME you buy clothes bigger because the old ones don’t fit…you are done.
    Period. Full stop.

    Give Up! You WANT to be fat.
    Yes! You!
    Because YOU gave in when you coiuld have stopped it.
    The REST of your life its rationalization.

    You dont want it bad enough. You are surrendering!

    Shut your mouth and in a week they will be just loose enough to be wearable.
    But you want to be comfy NOW…cause I WANNA…
    And the 36s have so much more room.
    I bet its easy an extra 10 lbs per jean size.

    First larger size after puberty
    First chad thundercock
    First daliance with the sweet young thing
    First twenty slipped out of the cash box.

    All the same thing.

    You do it once….you will do it again.

    Horseman,
    “Imagine the savings to put towards credit card debt if one ate like a Pole or Mongol.” Oh hell YEAH!

    Before I took my bride I made a few items abundantly and crystal clear to my new wife-to-be:
    1. We would NEVER have a credit card for any reason. If we don’t have the money save, we don’t buy whatever it is. Can do without.
    2. No fucking loans for stupid shit either. The only exception was a small mortgage for the house we live in, and that will be paid off in full by this coming August.
    3. Student debt, see point 2. That is why God created community college on the 9th day.
    4. Like clockwork, every paycheck has a bit taken out and dropped into a savings account, to be untouched unless a disaster happens to our family or a comet impacts earth erasing life as we know it.

    A Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist who was badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state. The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the Squad Leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.

    The Marine reported, “I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road.

    I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum-bag who got what he deserved.

    He yelled back, “Barack Obama is a lying, good-for-nothing, left wing Commie who isn’t even an American.

    So I said, “Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian!

    He retaliated by yelling, “Oh yeah? Well, so does Nancy Pelosi!

    And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us.

    FB, mental illness does age a person as you note. My little sister, my new dependent, does triathlons and has the legs of an 18 year-old, but has ECT every three weeks. (Electric shock induced convulsions. That’s back in fashion.) She now looks 30 years older than I. It’s shocking, sobering. One realizes how vulnerable she is, how she is hanging on by her fingernails. And she’s out there every day fighting to get to the next day.

    Per the Horseman’s note, I refuse to buy fat pants. I definitely refuse to buy new shirts and suits; that stuff is expensive, and I’ve bought my last $5000 suit. My target weight is 183. My jeans are, per the Horseman, 33/34. Hard boiled eggs FTW. Sitting at the bar tonight (I haven’t shaved since the funeral, nor changed my clothes), I was cold-approached by a lovely young nurse who works at the fancy place where my grandma died; we talked and she actually said, “Put my number in your phone”; beautiful face, very pleasant; pleasantly small boobs; 30 pounds overweight, probably late 20’s. I guess she figured that the old guy would go for the face and the youth, not the 10 boxes of pizza in her butt, which is the size of a VW Beetle. Definitely not a TRB, today.

    I’m going to ask her out and run a social experiment. I’m going to have a good time with her and mention, “Well, darling, if you drop 30 and promise to be fun and respectful, and make me coffee and supper a couple of times a week, do half the housework, your little boy can have the guest room.” I will do this with other people around, so she can’t have me arrested for being toxic. Will report back.
