YOU WHITE DEVILS are HER EXISTENCE (you bastards)


I chanced upon this comment by “Andrew” under a Helen Smith post:

“Across the board, it is astonishing how much of today’s political discourse can be boiled down in the end to – “If they are not that evil, then I am not that special”. (And by GOD if you try to even imply in any way that I am not that sooper-dooper special, I will consider it my own personal Pearl Harbor.)”

You’re evil, she’s special: it’s her (the fembot) staff of life and her reason for being. It’s her Cred, her Entitlement, her Screech. It’s also her threat and jeopardy.

Threat to men: Pearl Harbor. Think as I think, sonny boy, or I’ll bring the mother of all hell and fury down on you. It’s not an empty threat. It is backed by world-wide female group-think.

Threat to women: In the feminist mindset, “you’re evil” and “she’s special” are inseparable and imply each otherIf you contradict her and imply you’re not evil, you’re threatening her conviction that she’s sooper-dooper special. If you imply she’s not sooper-dooper special, you’re threatening her conviction that you’re evil.

And it doesn’t stop there, I’m afraid. Those two convictions (previous paragraph) are the foundation of her very existence. So, to deny that “she’s special” or “you’re evil” is to deny her existence. She exists because you’re evil and she’s special. You better believe it, it’s right up there with Good and Evil, Heaven and Hell, God and Satan… Women and Men.

Ay, there’s the rub. She can’t exist without you men, you white devils in particular. At risk of repetition (I’ve been saying it for years):

Feminism is ideologically dependent on the straight white male.

Feminists must keep this figment of fantasy that they call “The Patriarchy” alive and kicking in gullible minds.  It’s such a colossal fabrication, they can’t afford to let it become static. If people start to think, “yeah yeah we all know about The Patriarchy, we’ll take your word for it, feminists, now let us get on with our actual lives” Feminism will die. They must constantly reinvent The Patriarchy as more evil than before, more dangerous and threatening and looming. Month by month, the feminist message must become more extreme.

Of course, the more they stamp out the boogeyman only to reinvent him before you can say “boo”, the more they remind us that the task is simply beyond them… unless society agrees to more power to Feminism and increasingly extreme measures against straight white males.

They have made it clear that the real evil is white masculinity itself. Yes ladies and gentlemen, they leave you in no doubt that the threat of The Patriarchy is scary enough to justify racist bigotry and hate. The Feminist attack is now directed at the characteristics of white males that distinguish them from human females and males of other races. But wait these’s more! This is a new beginning for women AND the new men! Isn’t it beautiful?

“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Well, ongoing and increasing feminist extremism is equally certain. Where will it end? The infanticide of white males? No, the bogeyman must remain alive and kicking or Feminism will cease to exist. More extreme measures must be taken. Castrate all white men? Why yes, cut off their balls at puberty! Let’s be generous and make the taxpayer fund the cost of the scalpels! Can’t be fairer than that, eh? (But dang it, we’d run out of boogeymen again.)

Straight white men:

She is afraid of your doubting her worldview because in her solipsistic little mind, she thinks you will rebel with spite and hate as she would do to you. It is essential to her that her worldview remains beyond doubt, that everybody accept it as the universe. Everybody lives in it. Your doubt is a thought-crime against everything!

It does rather explain why she’s quick to tantrums. I am special! Special is Me! OMG without “Special Me” and “Evil You” there will be… NOTHING!

Hysteria is rising. Existence itself is at stake. Reality holds on by a thread. Now I know some of you blokes love acronyms, so I offer you a new rip-snorter right here:

YSEASSS or DTGSGM (you stay evil and she stays special or down the gurgler she goes, mate).

And yet I have to take my hat off to her, for she has managed to achieve the profound. Specifically, profound stupidity. Her goals are, according to her own worldview, synonymous with her extinction. The day she succeeds in stamping out white males is the day she loses the pillar of her existence (yeah YOU you evil bastards it’s all your fault).

Her best hope of surviving is to rein in her hate. Perhaps she has an inkling of this in the dim recesses of her severely retarded brain, but there sure ain’t much sign of it out here. Dumbcluck, thy name is Feminism.

    It was called the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act signed into law in 2016 by then-President Obama (and allowed by Establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan) that took effect in 2017 and allocated a whopping $160 MILLION taxpayer dollars over two years to pay for government-sponsored propaganda. The money is now gone and guess what? About 1000 journalists are suddenly being laid off.

    Coincidence? Hah! This was classic Obama, reaching into the bottomless trough of taxpayer dollars to push his self-promoting agenda. He did it with green energy, America-last trade agreements, and his post-2016 coverage to help ensure he remained relevant in order to quickly accumulate tens of millions of dollars worth of book deals, Netflix deals, and speaking fees.

    “You’re evil, she’s special”

    Another disturbing insight from the Antipodean.

    I spent the day in bed, scratching myself and reading the new novel by a classmate of mine from a few decades ago. I’m probably too lit by Mr. Jim Beam to be coherent. But it was very disturbing to me on three levels.

    1) She’s married to another classmate of mine, with whom I played football. We get together once a year and the SIGINT is they have sex twice a year. He has that weird curiosity about getting laid that all those guys have. (You just want to say, Go to Vegas and take care of it.)

    2) Protocol is I send her a pandering note of inordinate great praise, so I did so. I did my duty.

    3) Every man in this novel is a grotesque, incompetent, cringe-worthy freak none of us would spend five minutes entertaining. Yet the central man/protagonist is the character that produces the happy ending.

    This novel has received elaborate praise from such as The New Yorker and the Washington Post.

    Well. I have two books out to agents. My suspicion is that the writers I admire over the last 60 years (Roth, Carver, Salter, Ford, Hannah, Stone, guys like that) could not get published today. When I look at this novel my friend wrote, I ask myself what would happen if the women were as repugnant as the men she describes? However, as The Cill notes, because he’s evil, she’s special. So all the women in the book, who actually accomplish nothing, are elevated because they must endure the evil, tawdry men who surround them.

    But what if she wrote a book in which the women replaced the men in their ugliness? My friend would be picketed and fired from her major university job, that’s what, if she published a book in which the women are not beset by tawdry evil men.

    And the best writers of the past 60 years would be bartending, unpublished, unknown.

    It’s obvious that when they’re not kept in check by men, hundreds of millions of women are mental cot cases. However as feminists keep on upping the ante and exposing their insanity, there will be a tipping point. They’ll still have the support of all those daft women, but they must eventually become a laughing stock in the eyes of most of the world. If the next President is a woman, it’ll happen during her term.

    The earliest commercials aired during the Super Bowl have not aged well.

    “This flat tire needs a man,” the Goodyear Tire narrator declared in one spot that aired during that first national championship game between the established National Football League and the up-and-coming American Football League.

    It featured a damsel in distress stranded roadside after her car’s tire blows. Because the shadowy cover of night was no place for a single gal to linger, the woman wraps her coat protectively tight and seeks a payphone, presumably to call a burly man to get her out of the situation. “When there’s no man around, Goodyear should be,” the commercial crowed, plugging the company’s Double Edge Tire (“A Tire in a Tire!”).

    The police tactics, which are harsher than those of many Western countries, baffle law enforcement experts.

    “No matter the level of violence in front of you, you don’t have to go into this hunting, aggressive mode that the French use,” said Stuart Maslen, an honorary professor of law at the University of Pretoria in South Africa and the main author of a forthcoming United Nations report on the use of nonlethal weapons.

    Other countries have learned to control protests by winning protesters’ cooperation, but not France, said Otto Adang, a cognitive scientist at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands and an academic dean at the country’s Police Academy.

    “With the Yellow Vests, the idea that police could control these crowds by just pouring more people and repressing has reached its limits,” he said.

    women have to justify their choices, and they have this *need* to make themselves the good one. they have an aversion to being the bad one. so if they make the other person bad, it makes them good.

    my ex is actually the one who did this – my first husband. he and his parents had a seething hate for me. i actually did not tell our girls that Daddy left us; i let it be a mutual thing. because kids don’t care who did it, and pointing fingers makes things worse. they want and need and love both their Mommy and Daddy. it didn’t matter who did it; their hearts were broken, shattered. i would tell them i was so sorry Mommy and Daddy were divorced and that i broke their heart. if i had made it about their dad, then it would have put up a barrier between us, and they would not have felt safe coming to me with their broken hearts … and i wanted them to know that i would always be there for them, no matter what. and they did come to me with their broken hearts, and i did let them tell me how i hurt them, too. and i helped them work through that. it wasn’t till they were much older that they found out that it was his choice and he left. Aspie Girl knows about the prostitutes b/c she asked point blank one day. and with her personality, knowing the truth was better than her imagination and removed the anxiety. Oldest doesn’t want to know. i told Aspie Girl she is never to tell her sister unless she asks. i also prepared my girls for this day by teaching them, when the bible stories came up, that God loves prostitutes, too.

    she thinks you will rebel with spite and hate as she would do to you.

    i think it’s a default for people to think that others will do as they do. it takes growing up and maturity to realize this is not so. we naturally project onto others.

The West has become a prime example of what will occur to other societies if the men give any slack to the females, and they HAVE noticed, trust me.

    This culture will implode sooner rather than later, I for one will not care or mourn it’s passing, it will be time to start over…..perhaps with the females who are left alive in their proper roles as wives and mothers, and keeping their mouths shut while serving the men still willing to protect them.

    The lack of self-awareness Bloom describes is what I’m trying to get at in the book review, above. When a friend writes a novel, it’s a more affecting experience because you know how she thinks, you know how she lives and loves, you know what she does all day for a living. I mean, I stay in their house: I know who gets up first, how she takes her coffee, what kind of bagels she buys.

    I think my friend has been getting huzzahs for all the sexist, violent, cheap banter her female characters toss left and right at all the men in the story. It’s all so saucy and edgy. I wouldn’t have finished the book if I didn’t know the author: At times it was just Jezebel-level noise. (Also, she’s a major creative writing academic, so I wanted to understand the technical architecture of the story, because that was going to be ultra-professional, if a little tired.) There are only two women in the story who are *not* awful people, people a single man like BV normally collides with: an 18 year-old girl who is, naturally, victimized by a trogladyte male (cue castration jokes here har har har); a middle-aged sexpot who wears black and smokes (would bang). These are the only two women whose characters are not defined by their selfishness, kewl offhanded profanity and obscenities (have you noticed how woke females all have to curse a lot now? They can’t do it right but they spew F-bombs indiscriminately), by their pointless careers of no distinction. None of them accomplish ANYTHING. But they are the kewl kids.

    The only two virtuous men in the novel are a) a very, very, very old man who operates with sincere commitment to his art (for which he is ridiculed); b) the central character, a complete sad sack ugly human who is like a caricature of the caricatures we see in popular media. Complete doofus, disgusting physique, described as having dogshit, vomit, and dirt/dust on his ill-fitting clothing. More har har har.

    My point: notably, the entire novel collapses into ugly pointlessness without these two men. I don’t think the author (or the novel’s publisher, the reviewers, the customers) is aware that she produced a novel about wise-cracking, super-kewl dames and pathetic, toxic CMW men — and that it is the two men who act, in the end, to resolve the conflict and crisis of the first two acts. (I tend to put every novel or movie into three act form: conflict, crisis, resolution). The men provide resolution and the quasi-happy, feel-good ending. My friend, the author, writes not a single word that indicates that she is aware of this irony. Bloom may be right on the self-awareness observation.

    Civil asset forfeiture is a major hobby horse issue for me. One, because I’m a crazed libertarian. Two, because when I was dying once on a gurney the 90 IQ cop started interrogating me as to why I had $1700 in hundreds in my billfold (if he couldn’t carry that kind of money because he didn’t have any, why did I?). He wanted to harvest that cash. Three, because when I was fighting with the IRS they just hoovered $36,000 out of my checking account, no warning no explanation. It cost me $5K in legal to get my own money back. Four, I don’t use credit cards. Five, I don’t have a mortgage or a car note. The government dislikes all of the above, and they really dislike the notion that I have enough hard cash $ to disappear into the Missouri Breaks if I so choose.

    Der Ton keeps six months cash in mason jar in the backyard; I currently have $40K or so in my bureau. Every time I withdraw a few thousand from the bank the bastards ask me what it’s for; they are required to by the regulators, because there’s an anti-cash fatwa underway by US Treasury. The last time I did this the non-English speaker teller said, “So you buy new car?” “No. Barrett .50.” The little robot almost crashed and rebooted. Tomorrow I pull some more out. I want to ask her, “So, you love me long time?”

    P.S. I don’t have a Barrett .50. I live in town and my eyes suck, so it’s kinda beside the point.

    There’s something deeply satisfying about knowing one’s knots, Liz. I’ve used my Boy Scout knot merit badge knots my whole life, sometimes in professional circumstances (Georges Bank, etc.), usually not. Or being able to splice or end-knot a line (I have had a knife with a marlinspike for this purpose for decades). Just simple shit like tying a bowline to pull a car out of a ditch: it’s like a black art these days. Have fun with the class!

I could stand up straight pretty much anywhere inside, and it had plenty of room for three laid-out sleeping bags and big cooler and all the rest. I think it was @ $150 or so.

Meanwhile, men get longer jail sentences than women for the same crimes and make up the vast majority of homicide victims and combat deaths in the military. In addition, women make up 56 percent of college students, women win 80 percent of the child custody cases, men kill themselves at four times the rate that women do, and on average, women live five years longer than men do. To argue that we are living in a patriarchy where women get the short end of the stick, you have to ignore mountains of evidence that suggest the alternate conclusion.

    Against this history, which has become increasingly portentous over decades, it is a wonder that any decent person would still entertain the possibility that the accusation of a Marxist Socialist Democrat is worthy of five seconds of thought as to its validity. In even making the accusation, the Democrats betray the cynicism of their propaganda. They tap the morality of decent people to trick them into thinking that their morality is the problem, at least when compared to the new group morality of Marxists who will say and do anything to seize total political control over millions who would not otherwise trust them to give correct change.

    It defies logic to entertain the accusation of immorality from those who know that the unborn are human children, but gleefully promote their murder anyway. They lie with an ease that is both fascinating and horrifying. Their corruption is limitless, and their capacity for dishonesty is monumental. They are the embodiment of soulless cynicism, masquerading as care and concern for what is moral, knowing all the time that their words and deeds are false and poisonous. One is left to wonder how such people can even pretend to morality while practicing such evil.

    2. The middle class is overtaxed
    If government were the size that fiscally responsible conservatives and libertarians THINK IT SHOULD BE, then the middle class would indeed be overtaxed. However, that is not the world we live in. Instead, we’ve built a truly massive government, asked the rich to pay for most of it, and then borrowed to finance most of the rest instead of asking the middle class to pay THEIR FAIR SHARE,

    According to CBO calculations, low-income households earn five percent of the nation’s income but pay just one percent of all federal taxes. Middle-income households earn 14 percent of national income but shoulder 9 percent of all federal taxes. Even those households in the upper-middle class bear a lower tax burden than their share of national income. The top one percent of households (which starts at $500,000 for a two-person household) pay 25 percent of all federal taxes, still significantly more than their share of the nation’s income.

    My answer to anyone to says I don’t pay enough in taxes is, “Fuck you, pal.”

    Middle class earns (almost) 3 times what low-income earns, but pays taxes at 9 times the rate they do? Then I’m the one getting screwed. He says top 1% pay 25% of taxes, but DOESN”T SAY what percent of nation’s income they earn. Why’d he leave that out when he uses it for low and middle?

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/12/06/the-richest-1-percent-now-owns-more-of-the-countrys-wealth-than-at-any-time-in-the-past-50-years/?utm_term=.eaea09a487bc

    The wealthiest 1 percent of American households own 40 percent of the country’s wealth, according to a new paper by economist Edward N. Wolff. …
    Today, the top 1 percent of households own more wealth than the bottom 90 percent combined.

    Next year I’ll be paying $20,000 in private school tuition since the public schools are garbage in additional to all the taxes I already pay.

    So, like I said before, “Fuck, you pal.”

    AKRON, OH—According to witnesses of the miraculous event, an amorphous clump of cells was instantaneously transformed into a beautiful, fully formed human baby the moment it was delivered at Grace Hospital Wednesday afternoon.

    “Our little bundle of joy is so precious,” mother Hannah Bramer told reporters as she held her baby boy for the first time. “It’s hard to believe little Ashton was an unrecognizable blob of tissue just a few minutes ago.”

    “I have no idea how this happened, but I am so happy,” she added.

    Doctors who witnessed the occurrence claim it was nothing short of a medical miracle.

    “The baby you see was indeed just a part of that woman’s body, moments ago,” the doctor who delivered the child said. “He is now clearly a separate, unique human being—just like that. We’re all fascinated, honestly. It’s astounding. We have no explanation.”

    Aspie Girl wasn’t allergic to any of those things, but with her very fair irish skin and red hair, the sun was not her friend … and she was allergic to many sun screens. so we’d limit our extensive outdoor time to before 10 am and after 4pm. that way she didn’t need sunscreen and could have all the fun she wanted.

    HARTFORD, CT—An intense one-day women’s conference on self-esteem and belonging has left local woman Jeanette Robinson convicted to her core of how awesome she is, sources confirmed.

    “Everything I held dear, before this, I am now counting as garbage,” a sobbing Robinson told reporters Thursday. “I can’t believe I went so long in life with this blind spot, unable to see the light of how incredible of a person I am, and how much God needs me on His team.”

    “As I turn my eyes upon how important I really am in the grand scheme of things, everything else looks, well—strangely dim,” Robinson went on, a twinkle in her eye as she updated her Twitter profile to reflect her newfound faith.

    Reports from those close to Robinson also indicate the newly changed woman has been in deep thought and prayer since her return, as she continually seeks to reorient her priorities now that she realizes that it truly is all about her, thanks to the barrage of workshops, presentations, and keynote speakers that all affirmed her sense of self-importance and asked her to find “the princess within.”

    “As the Apostle says, I now count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing how special and wonderful I am.”

    No rhetorical sleight of hand, such as Zuckerberg’s disingenuous claim that “we don’t sell your data,” can obfuscate that fact. His claim makes a technical distinction. Obviously, Facebook does not part ways with the data we give it in exchange for money from advertisers. They hold onto this precious commodity and sell insights into who we are and what we do to advertisers, treating it as a renewable and recyclable resource.

    Indeed, Facebook’s business model relies on amassing as much personal information as possible. Zuckerberg admits this in his piece, saying Facebook aims to collect “what pages people like, what they click on, and other signals.” The latest illustration of this intent appeared in a recent New York Times report that Facebook plans to integrate Facebook Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp into a unified platform, which will dramatically increase their holistic knowledge and insights of users and their behavior.

    Facebook does not part ways with the data we give it in exchange for money from advertisers. They hold onto this precious commodity and sell insights into who we are and what we do to advertisers, treating it as a renewable and recyclable resource.

    All of this is emblematic of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s stark warning that we have allowed companies to create a “data industrial complex” in which “companies know you better than you may know yourself.”

    Let’s not be fooled or distracted by semantic debate. We are being monetized and sold.

    So back to the book review from yesterday. I had a brief exchange via email with the author, which is nice since she and her husband are teaching at Oxford this spring and she didn’t have to get back to me. As mentioned, I had praised the novel for “moving assertions of virtue” in its resolution. But she was moved by the praise. I didn’t name who manifested these stirring assertions of virtue — but she chose the same two men that I did. “While flawed” she starts: zero awareness that she ruthlessly slimed them for 275 pages — har har har har — before the two men save art and a young woman in the last 25 pages. “While flawed”? The men are painted as grotesque, disgusting, cretinous morons. Author thinks she was just being a little snarky. She has no awareness, I suspect, that none of her wisecracking man-haters actually do *anything* of difficulty or value in 300 pages. Well, I suppose she thinks that eviscerating men verbally is their real accomplishment. This is a middlebrow comic novel, the kind that gets optioned for a TV movie or series, and hence this outlook is mainstream.

    Of course, one of the two men dies, because that is what men do in the service of higher things.

    Ame, that’s an interesting question, at least to someone who tries to understand how people assemble their books. (I tend to look at a novel such as hers as a very finely crafted piece of furniture; technically, in its architecture, it’s unassailable if one is okay with mid-20th century technique).

    She wrote the book (it is a sequel) and her editor declined it! and made her re-write the whole thing. (She had gotten Wow! reviews in prestige publications for the previous one and she was seriously pissed off.)

    The opening chapter is a very interesting series of the principal characters in motion; sequentially we see them doing something but not with each other. Each is effectively summarized in a few pages and then in Chapter Two the narrative commences, with the principals entering and leaving according to the demands of the plot. So the opening chapter, in its way, is the ‘character bio’ exercise I think you mentioned.

    So to your question: yes, I think she very carefully plotted both characters and action when she rewrote it. And the book suffers as a result. Because she is a feminist academic, the book is treated like serious literature; all the SJW tithing (vilifying and ridiculing men) is part of this unearned praise. But in the end the characters are one-trick ponies, easily summarized in a snarky talking point. (As are Hollywood/television characters, usually.) In serious literature, imo, as in life, character is rarely known, rarely summarized in a pitch-meeting talking point, and uncertainty, the unknowability of human souls, is what makes us turn the page.

    I lie to the police every time they stop me at 3 a.m. when I’m driving around not sleeping, parking at the lake where there is public wifi, going through the Nationals’ box scores etc.

    “How you doin’?” the little transient shitheads with their plastic guns all start with. I’ve been stopped 25 times in the last five years, in NW Bumfuck Nothing Going On Arctica.

    “Fine.”

    “What ‘re ya doing?”

    “Reading.”

    “Had anything to drink tonight?”

    I always have an open can of ginger ale or Mountain Dew on the dash. Mr. Jim Beam prefers to sit behind my seat because he’s shy.

    “Mountain Dew. I’ve got an extra, want one?”

    I ordered some Speer Gold Dot 9mm & .45 to try. The CZ got a bunch of FTC with the GD 9mm, and the 45 had a hard time with it too. The Hornaday ammo ran flawlessly in both pistols. Hey, thanks for the advice, Ton.

    Honestly, CdO, that doesn’t look like more than a couple hundred to me.

    But in the annals of agitprop and populist revolt, the decision of the vilets jaunes to wear those high-viz vests was brilliant. Because even if there are only 200, they’re 200 unavoidable people. If they ever do mass properly (say, 1 million, as per a Tea Party rally in 2009 in the USA) people are going to have exploding eyeballs.

    My understanding is that the yellow vest thing is derived from a Parisian edict that no one in SE Bumfuck Languedoc was allowed to drive a car any more without a safety vest inside. Basically, telling everyone, “You”re a garbageman.” Too bad the Parisans didn’t also mandate that every little Citroen have a hatchet inside, too. This mess would have been over by now.

    that’s interesting, BV. it sounds like she had the concept ahead of time and created characters to fit the story … so her characterizations of men vs women was intentional.

    i always wonder if authors diagram their characters as they write to keep them all separate and accurate, esp if they end up writing a series … a simple list of the characteristics of each person and things that happen in their lives. the discrepancies are usually subtle and found when reading a whole series at one time rather than as each book comes out.

    other than a few very short stories here and there over my life, i’ve not written fiction, but i’ve often wondered … not how authors create characters so much as how they keep all the personalities separate and accurate over the span of the book(s).

    generational stories are always interesting to me when they show the changes each goes thru over a lifetime of experiences and how the older characters then interact with the younger ones – the life-experience lenses that affect their personalities and choices.

    Live by the 75% rule now.
    Any woman I am with can be no more than 75% of my weight unless she is my height. So at my usual 175 mark the max is 131, rounded to 135.

    Unfortunately according to the CDC the AVERAGE weight of an american female is 166.
    Thats Average.

    P.s. Mrs was almost my weight before the year from hell. Dropped 50 and kept it off.
    And thats post 50 years old and post menopause.
    So I dont believe for a second it cant be done.
    Just requires appropriate motivation.
    (Like looking at being alone, fat and fifty vs do something to prevent it)

    our little doggie gives us so much joy! it’s amazing that something so small could have so much personality and be such a delight!

    she tries to be under my feet when i cook, waiting for that one, tiny, oops that falls on the floor. i shoo her out, and she comes back. we play this game. most of the time i don’t mind, and she’s so darn cute! so i let her.

    our previous doggie would show remorse when she didn’t follow instructions, but this one shows no remorse – only that she got caught but never that she did it. since she’s deaf, she’ll turn her head and act like she didn’t get the hand command! lol! such a toddler! then she’ll slightly glance back w/her head still raised and turned away to see if the command still stands. she’s soooo funnee!

    when Husband eats in front of the tv, she’ll come sit on the ottoman in front of him, and just watch him. patiently waiting until he finishes, hoping to get to lick his plate. it’s amazing how patient she is waiting for just a little bit of pleasure.

    she’s a havanese mix, and those dogs tend to have one fav person, and i’m her fav person.

    One of my old GFs, whom I met flying home from out there, had the plus-60 rule. She wanted to be sure I weighed 60 pounds more than she. I built a model on that precept, fit my historical data; it’s predictive. When a model fits out of sample, use it.

    Seeing as how my moniker is patterned after some immensely fat guys, I’m a little more strict than our resident horsemaster. I generally won’t consider girls more than 50-60% of my current mass, unless they’re packing solid muscle.

    The weight fluctuates a bit, but currently I’m sitting around 210 lbs; 130 lbs is more or less my limit, but as stated, I’ll accept up to 150 lbs if they’re fit, muscle-y chicks.
