People are afraid of the unknown and also probably a little jealous.
Counterpoint - as a 33 yo man entering the dating pool this year for the first time since 2006, I was surprised at the interest level I got from women 5-9 years younger than me. Despite my lack of youth I found my financial stability, sense of self, pleasant living space, established interests and clarity of purpose…
Truly this. For the motorist with a truck and a dog, the role down back window is the ultimate luxury.
Looking at a positive side, this pop-up seems like part of a movement making feminism and femininity concepts that can co-exist.
Handgun ammunition is ~$.20/rd. AR ammo is ~$.40. In many places, you can get ammo at the grocery store.
Any AR lower receiver can be made fully automatic with one additional hole from a drill press and a modified trigger group.
An AR lower experiences almost no heat or stress. It won’t shoot 1000 rounds, but it would probably survive for multiple 30 rd magazines.
The 3D printed gun story ignores how easy it already is to make a gun with parts and instructions online. From “80%” AR lowers that only need the trigger drilled to hardware store shot guns this cat has been out of the bag for 90 years.
As a BVT resident in the 90s, that was one of my favorite things to see in traffic.
Couldn’t agree with you more. CBGB was more a T-shirt brand than a culturally relevant club for the last 15 years of its existence. Taking umbrage at this cute little homage is on par with being mad that MTV doesn’t play music.
I happen to like it as well. It bypasses an anatomical or chromosomal standard and lets athletes compete with the gender they identify with.
You make a great point. I think Testosterone testing is the IAAF’s attempt to wiggle out of an uncomfortable conversation around intersex and trans athletes while trying to maintain a definition of “fair”.
The saying is As hire As and Bs hire Ds.
It sounds like they are basing the whole purchase on plans for 7 different permutations of Entourage.
If they’re somewhat charming, decent looking and have money, experience has probably taught them that they have a shot (though, not necessarily with you).
It’s fair to say that most of the men in the dating pool are not particularly fit or rich.
Alimony only goes to men in 3% of divorces (per 2010 census).
I suppose - but that order of operations requires driving high in order to get warm food.
Coming into the age where as many of my friends are getting divorced as married I think you might be onto something. I’m watching friends pay alimony and lose houses even if there are no kids to support. Tradition aside, I’m not sure that there is a compelling reason for a man to get married if there aren’t already…
I met a sex worker recently who specifically seeks these kinds of arrangements. She cooks and makes social arrangements for room/board and $3000 a month. Her clients are older tech bro types in their 40s and 50s who do not want any nuance in their relationships, but hate coming home to an empty house. She liked it,…
