Gift cards are awesome for corporations

As with pretty much anything else you see being pushed on TV or the mass media, like car leases and diamonds, here's something to chew on about gift cards - they are a source of big money for corporations. I wrote about gift cards earlier here. Without going all tinfoil-hatty, its pretty obvious that gift cards are a good deal for companies - they get all the money immediately from someone who likes them enough to gift someone else a gift card from that store, but they also get a few visits from the recipient.

But anyway, here's the new article I found about gift cards a few days ago. Retailers profit from unused gift cards.

Last winter, Best Buy Co. reported a $43 million gain in fiscal 2006 from cards that hadn't been used in two or more years. Limited Brands Inc. recorded $30 million in 2005 revenue because of unredeemed cards.

About 6 percent, or $4.8 billion, of this year's gift cards will go unused, estimated Laura Lane, vice president of unclaimed property services for Keane Co., a compliance and risk management consulting firm.

Consumer Reports put the figure even higher, estimating that 19 percent of those who received cards last year had not used them because the cards were lost or expired.

Research shows that most consumers will spend more than the card is worth, using their own money to make up the difference.
Gotta love consumers!

Diamonds are a whore's best friend

This being the holiday season, and me having a roommate who's glued to the TV, I've been watching a lot of trash on the tube lately. With the holiday season and the requisite Lexus-with-a-bow ads, there are a lot of jewelry ads on TV - they're everywhere! I'm sick of the whole consumeristic madness that happens every year around this time, but its so ingrained in our culture now that its like saying I'm sick of people drinking Bud Light or something. Going back to diamonds, why is it that women go completely nutso over a piece of rock? Now, I understand that I'm using logic here, which most members of the pussy power sex have evolved to not need, but seriously - if there is an example of marketing-created need/demand, this is it.

Now, its pretty obvious that the sole consumer of the entire diamond and gemstone industry is the "fairer" sex. But there's a trick - very few of the commercials target the female viewer only. If they do, the implicit (or explicit, in some cases) message is that He doesn't Love you if he doesn't buy you expensive, useless stuff.
The message to men? Buy her a diamond to prove you love her if you want the poon to continue to be available, you faggot loser MALE!

That old adage comes to mind - "Women like it when you spend money on them, but they love it if you waste money on them." And seriously, who hasn't seen a girl's reaction to a particularly nice or expensive gift? They positively wet their panties over it! No wonder gifts and flowers are equated with sex and "getting some".

Now, I'm the first to admit that of all the gemstones, diamonds actually have some use, being the hardest substance on earth and all. They're great on saw blades for one. But that's not what they're sold as to the gullible female consumer.

There have also been a lot of trailers for Blood Diamond on TV lately. I haven't checked it out, but it may be worth a look.

Now, a lot of women and manginas say that diamonds are a status symbol just like any other, that plenty of people buy themselves fancy cars, high priced computer parts or nice homes, and these are all status symbols too, so we should just shut up about women and their goddamn jewelry. However, they don't seem to realize that while most men buy themselves their cars and their XFX8800GT's and 500GB hard drives and whatnot, but women expect men to buy them these expensive shiny wastes of money.

And here's another paradox - if women only want these godforsaken carbon compounds to look shiny and impress their friends, why do they care if we buy them fake diamonds? Does it matter if that's a cubic zirconium on that finger, or hell even a lab-made diamond? Oh No nonono, it is probably grounds for a setting-genitals-on-fire moment if the dear lady finds out that that precious rock is not a priceless De Beers special! And any judge will sympathize with the poor wittle woman there, you just know it. Its domestic violence to give a diamond worth less than your house, ya know.

Fuck diamonds, fuck materialistic gold-digging whores, and fuck the consumeristic cesspit this society has become. I'm off to get a beer.

Merry Christmas!

Well, I hope everyone had a great time on Christmas day, mine was a lot of fun since I spent it with my girlfriend and we had lots of fun, even though the weather was not very cooperative.

I know I've been scarce lately, but this barren phase should pass soon, as soon as I get the Internet activated at my new place.

Till then take care and enjoy yourself!

Women speak in Right, Men listen in Wrong

Here's a webpage that was either written by a spineless man hoping to get one up on his fellow men by putting all of us down, or by a run of the mill woman who hates men just like she loves kittens. It comes easy to them you know, as hard as it is for men to hate women, it is exactly the opposite for women.

Not only are they aware of the wonderful fact of life called "Pussy Power" and that they have automatic power over pretty much any man who crosses their path, either directly or indirectly, but they are bombarded with songs which encourage them to hate men as a class. And its not just the K-16 feminist indoctrination camps, it is the mass media - every waking hour, as long as the TV is on, the garbage just keeps spewing forth.

According to women, women can not do no wrong. And according to men, whatever women say is right, because they might just get fired by someone who does think that whatever women say is right.

So anyway,

Women Speak in Estrogen and Men Listen in Testosterone

Sure, you thought you already knew that. But now we have proof. After countless hours of surveys and studies on the following topics, these facts have emerged.


First of all, a man does not call a relationship a relationship - he refers to it as "that time when me and Suzy were doing ‘it’ on a semi-regular basis".

When a relationship ends, a woman will cry and pour her heart out to her girlfriends, and she will write a poem titled "All Men are idiots". Then she will get on with her life.

A man has a little more trouble letting go. Six months after the break-up, at 3:00 a.m. on a Saturday night, he will call and say, "I just wanted to let you know you ruined my life, and I'll never forgive you, and I hate you, and you're a total bitch. But I want you to know that there's always a chance for us".

This is known as the "I Hate You / I Love You" drunken phone call, that 99% if not all men have made at least once. There are community colleges that offer courses to help men get over this need, alas, these classes rarely prove effective.


Women prefer 30 - 40 minutes of foreplay. Men prefer 30 - 40 seconds of foreplay. Men consider driving back to her place as part of the foreplay


Women mature much faster than men do. Most 17 year old females can function as adults. Most 17 year old males are still playing computer games.

This is why school romances rarely work out.


Men's magazines often feature pictures of naked women. Women's magazines also feature pictures of naked women. This is because the female body is a beautiful work of art, while the male body is lumpy and hairy and should not be seen by the light of day.

Men are turned on at the sight of a naked woman's body. Most naked men elicit laughter from women.


To their credit, men do not decorate their penmanship. They just scribble. Women use scented, coloured stationery and they dot their i's with circles and hearts. Women use ridiculously large loops in their p's and g's it is a royal pain to read a note from a woman. Even when she's dumping you, she'll put a smiley face at the end of the note.


Let's say a small group of men and women are in a room, watching television, and an episode of the Three Stooges comes on. Immediately, the men will get very excited, they will laugh uproariously, and even try to imitate the actions of Curly, man's favourite. The woman will roll their eyes and groan and wait it out.


A man has six items in his bathroom;- a toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from some hotel. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 437. A man would not be able to identify most of these items.


A woman makes a list of things she needs and then goes to the shop and buys these things. A man waits till the only items left in his fridge are half an orange and a beer. Then he goes grocery shopping. He buys everything that looks good. By the time a man reaches the checkout, his trolley is packed tighter than any refugee’s belongings. Of course, this will not stop him from going to the 10 items or less checkout.


When preparing for work, a woman will put on a designer wool suit, and then slip on Reebok shoes. She will carry her dress shoes in a designer label plastic bag. When a woman gets to work, she will put on her dress shoes. Five minutes later she will kick them off because her feet are under the desk. A man will wear the same pair of shoes all day.

Going Out:

When a man says he is ready to go out, it means he is ready to go out. When a woman says she is ready to go out, it means she WILL be ready to go out, as soon as she finds her earring, finishes putting on her makeup, and decides what dress to wear.


Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.

Dressing Up:

A woman will dress up to: go shopping, water the plants, empty the rubbish, answer the phone, read a book, get the post. A man will dress up for;-weddings, or funerals.


Women do their laundry every couple of days. A man will wear every article of clothing he owns, including his slip pants that were hip about eight years ago, before he will do his laundry. When he is finally out of clothes, he will wear a dirty sweatshirt inside out, rent a trailer and take his mountain of clothes to the laundry. Men always expect to meet beautiful women at the laundry. This is a myth perpetuated by re-runs of Levi’s ads.



If Mary, Suzanne, Jane and Alice get together for lunch, they will call each other Mary, Suzanne, Jane and Alice. But if Mike, Dave, Tom and Jack go out for a pint, they will affectionately refer to each other as Butt-Head, Tosser, Peanut-Brain and Useless.

Eating out:

When the bill comes, Mike, Dave, Tom and Jack will each throw in £20 note, even though it's only for £22.50, none of them will have anything smaller, and none will actually admit they want change back. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.


Men are vain, they will always check themselves out in a mirror. Women are ridiculous, they will check out their reflections in any shiny surface: mirrors, spoons, store windows, toasters, and Tom’s head.

The Telephone:

Men see the telephone as a communication tool. They use the telephone to send short messages to other people. A woman can visit her girlfriend for two weeks, and upon returning home, she will phone the same friend and they will talk for three hours.


If a woman is out driving, and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings, she will stop at a petrol station and ask for directions. Men consider this to be a sign of weakness. Men will never stop and ask for directions. Men will drive in a circle for hours, all the while saying things like, "Looks like I've found a new way to get there" and, "I know I'm in the general area, I recognise that pub".

Admitting Mistakes:

Women will sometimes admit making a mistake. The last man who admitted he was wrong was General Custer.


A woman asks a man to water her plants while she is on vacation. The man waters the plants. The woman comes home five or six days later to an apartment full of dead plants. No one knows why this happens.


Women use garages to park their cars and store their lawnmowers. Men use garages for many things. They hang car parts in garages, they avoid women in garages, and they build useless lopsided benches in garages.


Women look nice when they wear jewellery. A man can get away with wearing one ring and that's it. Any more than that and he will look like a lounge singer named Shay.

Sarah said...
Well now. Do you think there's anything problematic with this guy's behaviour? Like, just maybe he's being a bit dishonest at this point when he knows very well the two of them have different ideas as to where the relationship's going?

This bit also sounds very misogynist--he doesn't seem to care for her other than as a decent fuck, and he knows she's interested in more than fucking with him.

Assuming the rest of it happened as the writer said it did--and it sounds rather like revenge fantasy to me--it's nasty, but it is in response to deception, so I won't say anything more about it. He's a misogynistic and possibly sadistic arsehole and she's an antifeminist's favourite lying greedy stereotype. And I don't think the commenters on the forum said anything more than that.

Hi Sarah.
I have two words for you... "WAAH WAAH"

I bet that anyone who doesn't outright worship the ground you females walk on is misogynist according to you.

Have you considered the possibility that there is NOTHING wrong with his behavior? Like, maybe the lying deceitful BITCH is the one to blame? He was looking for a sport fuck, and as long as he didn't sign a contract stating that he wasn't, well he doesn't owe her a goddamn thing. And neither does she, for that matter. When the relationship isn't progressing the way the female wants it to, its all because the man is a bastard, isn't it. Not because he might not be interested in being railroaded into a future she picks out for him.

The problem stems from the fact that anytime a man doesn't bend over backwards for a female, it is taken to be misogynist, anytime a man gets the upper hand against a woman, it must be because he's a big meanie, he hates women, has a small dick, fucks his mother et cetera ad nauseum.

The people on the Let's Be Nice Guys forum (well, the one I quoted) were saying that he should just accept what she did, and "maybe he will come to love the child." Never mind that he may be wishing to raise a child who didn't have a lying whore for a mother.

So, in summation, she was trying to lead the relationship in a different direction than he wanted, and she should suffer for that precisely because its so easy for a woman to abuse that power and lessening the trust of all women in the eyes of men.

Now this is funny! Or is it?

Now this is funny! - No More Mr. Nice Guy OSG

I saw that this site had linked to my article "Reversal of 'This was no accident'", so I followed the link and what I saw was surprising... some people actually believe that men should just roll over like a puppy in the presence of a female master - just roll over and show her your vulnerabilities and hope she doesn't take you for all you're worth.

Just to be clear, this person is advocating that when you're faced with a lying, deceitful bitch, you should treat her with gloves or something.

I believe I speak for a LOT of us when I say, FUCK CHIVALRY!

Playing the game and MGTOW

"A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?" quote from Wargames 1983.

That's right guys! The only winning move today in the modern dating world is not to play. Forget about the dreams of having a nice wife, 2 1/2 kids and a house with a white picket fence. Those days are long gone.

Modern women, especially career women, are never satisfied. They always want more, more, more.
When is enough, enough?

Imagine a 20-something guy, living somewhere in the United States. Maybe in a big city like New York or Los Angeles, or perhaps in a small town or suburbia in some obscure corner of our country. He sits on some idle Sunday afternoon on his porch, or maybe fire escape, pondering why he has had such a difficult time finding a woman.

He shakes his head.

He knows there is nothing outwardly wrong with him. He is the archetypical tall, dark, and handsome man that all women say they seek. He has a good job, not great, but it affords him the opportunity to pay his bills and be self-sufficient. He is well mannered, always been a model citizen. He tries his best to be honest, and loyal. He once tried pot in college but never got into drugs. No arrests, no tattoos, no illegitimate children, no major flaws.

Just an all around good guy.

He thinks to himself, "I know I am all this but why can't I seem to keep a woman with me longer than a month?" He thinks about all the women he has been involved with over the last couple of years. He has tried meeting women the normal, socially acceptable way, in bars. He has taken his parents advice and joined a few church and young professional groups. Heck, he even gave online dating a try.

With all the different methods, 63 women involved with, 63 similar results.

The result you may ask... failure... yes, failure... They all seem to start out the same way. She always seems real interested and genuine. They give comments like, "Oh, I cannot believe you are still single" and "You are such a wonderful guy and so on".

It never seems to last though.

One way or another, she will get sick and tired of the "dramaless world" and start seeking to go elsewhere. Enter week three... It usually goes something like this... My ex so-or-so just called me and wants to see his cat he gave me, I don't really want to see him, but I think I owe him... What should I do?

You answer
a) not saying a word throwing a hissy fit and calling her every expletive in the book
b) saying you deal with it
c) telling her by no means that she is allowed to see him
d) just hanging up and walking away...

Of course, we never seem to be able to select d. Usually by this time, the woman in question has been working on you for sometime to open up emotionally. She has been talking about doing things with you in the future, visiting romantic spots, sending you gifts and I love you cards... All in a effort to try to bait you into believing this thing is real... The moment you believe it is real is the moment she decides to dump you in the trash.

It's all downhill from there.

This is when the real drama begins. Sometimes you are lucky and she will just disappear. Or other times, if you are not emotionally attached to the woman, you can just walk away. But more often than not, that is never the case.

This is when the nightmares begin.

She is no longer available to answer your calls. She starts making up excuses for not being around, and or, starts spending more time partying with her girlfriends. She starts giving you excuses, like, "I'm not ready for a relationship" and so on... The lies pile up... You feel emotionally raped and it ends... Almost as fast as it begins... She is gone... Never to be heard from again. Sometimes you write them... and they tell their girlfriends, "Oh, chuck just emailed me... I haven't talked to him in two years... he's a stalker... *laughs* Of course, they never tell their girlfriends about the ways they seduced your heart into believing the big lie, only to yank it out and crush it. But most of the time you just let it go, not wanting to deal with it anymore.
Inside, the bitterness just swells like a balloon until a time when it just snaps and DEATH... OF THE POST-MODERN GUY...

You just don't care anymore. There is a time shortly after the death is like a radioactive winter. It's a time when he just doesn't care about dating or looking for woman. He spends his mornings at the local YMCA running an endless loop around the track.

He thinks about what is important... friends... male friends...

Something that he has none of... He has been told not to make friends with males by society. When he tries to be friendly with a brainwashed male, they think he has some ulterior motive, or he is gay... Of course he's not! He's been one of them. A brainwashed guy who thought he knew the deal. He relents and persists... Confidence grows and meets other men who have also been through the wars of dating. They’re a motley bunch, with bloody bandages and scars.
They have come to a point in their lives when they feel that they don't need to be defined by who and how many they sleep with.

The next time he goes out with his buddies he ignores the drunken advance of an unscrupulous chick and looks away from the two attention whores dancing on the stage. When a fat chick tries to get him to dance, he tells her, "I'm sorry, but I don't dance... Why don't you dance with that clown in the hockey jersey"

He smiles as she walks away rejected, knowing well that he has been that guy at one point or another.

Back to the guy sitting on his fire escape an idle Sunday somewhere in America. He has an epiphany... He realizes that he is not alone... There many guys like him sitting thinking about the same thing. He stands up and says... This ain't worth the bother... There more important things to worry about in life than modern day women.

You can thank feminism and misandry in the media for this ladies.

Dudes... Time to go your own way!

Husband Superstore

Recently a "Husband Super Store" opened where women could go to choose a husband from among many men. It was laid out over five floors, with the men increasing in positive attributes as you ascended.

The only rule was, once you opened the door to any floor, you HAD to choose a man from that floor; if you went up a floor, you couldn't go back down except to leave the place, never to return.

A couple of girlfriends went to the shopping centre to find some husbands.

First floor
The door had a sign saying, "These men have jobs and love kids."
The women read the sign and said, "Well, that's better than not having a job or not loving kids, but I wonder what's further up?" So up they went.

Second floor
The sign read, "These men have high paying jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking."
"Hmmm," said the ladies, "But, I wonder what's further up?"

Third floor
This sign read, "These men have high paying jobs, are extremely good looking, love kids and help with the housework."
"Wow," said the women, "Very tempting." But there was another floor, so further up they went."

Fourth floor
This door had a sign saying "These men have high paying jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, help with the housework and have a strong romantic streak."
"Oh, mercy me," they cried, "Just think what must be awaiting us further on!"

So up to the fifth floor they went.

Fifth floor
The sign on that door said, "This floor is empty and exists only to prove that women are f**king impossible to please. The exit is to your left, we hope you fall down the stairs."

Joe Rogan is awesome

I saw Joe Rogan on Truth for Men yesterday and he was hilarious!! I'm putting the video here too. The female heckler (what is it with cunts and heckling?) tries the old shaming language schtick and he puts her in her place with ease.

Here's something else I found - Joe Rogan is on some radio show and a female calls in with an attitude, ranting on about how Joe Rogan said something she doesn't agree with and he just lays into her. Its hilarious!

Hidden message in Michael Noer's article?

I've been reading through the PDF I posted yesterday (I'm on page 518 of 5972 right now) and I was just thinking about Noer's statement here:

To be clear, we're not talking about a high-school dropout minding a cash register. For our purposes, a "career girl" has a university-level (or higher) education, works more than 35 hours a week outside the home and makes more than $30,000 a year.

Is this the first mention of the Marriage Strike in the media, nay, the first "advice" column telling men to avoid marriage altogether? Let's face it, pretty much any decently middle class woman is going to be earning $25-30k as soon as she gets out of college. Combine that with the fact that pretty much any woman is not going to be ready to marry straight out of high school - there is a very negative opinion of such women, trailer trash etc. Women outnumber men in college across the board, remember.

So, is Michael Noer essentially telling us to avoid American women altogether? Is he telling men that our marriage strike is justified and backed up by studies and statistics? Is Corcoran a crazy bitch?

Yes, yes, and YES!

I think that he is telling men to think twice about marrying today - even if that was not his point, he is inadvertently telling us to avoid pretty much most women in the marriage market today. He did not dwell much on the divorce culture prevalent in the west today, but it was as far as anyone in a mainstream publication has gone. He is telling us that they are very likely to be unhappy if they quit the workplace, unhappy if they remain in the workplace, and unhappy if they earn more than their husband.

The problem with them being unhappy is that they tend to whine, and that whining leads to all sorts of slime coming out and encouraging them to divorce the loser and take him for all he's worth!

They are also more likely to not raise children properly and not maintain the household properly. What a splendid deal! Give up your freedom and your money, all for a nagging bitch who doesn't appreciate you and whose feminist ideology tells her to make him kiss her ass 24/7.

The Forbes Discussion, archived

The Forbes article "Why you should not marry a career woman" was pretty much the first and only article in the mainstream media which actually held women accountable for their actions - namely telling them that there were consequences to having a career, and those consequences include being less attractive to a member of the opposite sex who is looking for a long-term stable relationship. (And no, bitches, long-term does not mean six-month anniversaries.)

Naturally feminists all over the country slimed out of their dark moist spaces and complained, loudly. So much so that the article was swiftly added, and then a laughable "counterpoint" put in place by a blame-n-shame female, who predictably had nothing on Michael Noer's studies and good writing. Her writing reads like a feminist blog, his reads like Forbes.

Sayonara from the dontgetmarried board graciously put up this link for us to enjoy. There's around six thousand pages of material in here, this should keep you occupied for a while. Most of it is shrill whining by females in the Forbes discussion board, but the replies are worth a read.

A Christmas blog and a rant

I was just clicking on the "Next blog" button idly and found this little beauty after clicking past a few foreign-language blogs.

Its a blog comprised solely of Christmas gift wishlists. Everyone has a laundry list of what they want, the family dog included. The items they have received are followed with GOT IT in red letters. I expect this sort of mercenary attitude from 9 year olds, not grown ups.

I guess this is the zenith (or nadir, if you prefer) of naked consumerism taking over the most well-known of Christian traditions. When the entire holiday is treated as a financial transaction, with families keeping track of their gifts (and doubtless the monetary value of said gifts) with computers, like a bean counter feverishly working to balance the financial statement before the close of the quarter.

Another pet peeve of mine is gift cards. Why why why do these horrific things exist? They are nothing but money makers for retailers. I count them as the biggest affront to consumers since mail-in rebates. I know both of them are necessary for retailers, and that's because most consumers are STUPID!! Including me. I've had over $200 in rebates either never come back or forget to send it in the first place. Funny how the USPS has such stellar service that a letter rarely gets lost, but when it comes to rebate clearinghouses, they lose rebates by the metric fuckton.

Anyway, back to gift cards. Let's say an impressionable person is watching TV, and a TV ad comes on with the requisite nerdy 19 year old boy and hot 19 year old female. The impressionable aunt thinks, "Oh my lord, my nephew's birthday is right around the corner and I don't have a gift for him!"

Instead of doing the rational thing and gifting him an envelope stuffed with actual, good for something cash, she drives to the local Best Buy and buys a gift card for $5, 10, 15 or 25 dollars. Now what this does is:
a) The money is instantly useless to anyone with half a brain who makes most of their electronics purchases online or at the other store, which has the item he wants at half the price.
b) The money is instantly rendered useless to the guy who just wants to pay his credit card bill, pay for his car repair, pay his rent or any number of other things that can all be done with CA$H.

This is why I dislike gift cards. Instead of going to the bank and withdrawing cash, you are going to the store and giving it to the store. Now if the gift receiver wants to buy something, chances are good that the gift card won't be enough. Either that, or he'll feel forced to buy something that costs more than the gift card in order to use it all up.

Whichever way you look at it, gift cards suck. They suck harder than a feminist sucks cat-cock.

I know many people think that cash is mercenary and cold, but I say there are a million things colder than cash - and someone giving cash is admitting more honestly they haven't a clue what the gift receiver would want than the one who makes an arbitrary decision about which store the receiver should shop at.

Updated December 10: I found this guide to gift cards in case someone actually wants to give someone one of these abominations.
How is a woman like a condom?

Both spend more time in your wallet than on your dick.

Single Mom has her son arrested

A single mother has her child (a son, wouldn't you know it?) arrested for failure to comply with the law - specifically, opening a Christmas present too early.

The Christmas present was a gift from his great-grandmother, who had specifically told him not to open the present, which was lying under the tree all wrapped up and sittin' pretty. The gift was a Nintendo Gameboy Advance.

But on Sunday morning, the gift was unwrapped and the box was empty. So when the boy's mother found out, she alerted police, the paper reported.

"He took it without permission. He wanted it. He just took it," said the 63-year-old great-grandmother told the Herald. The women said that the boy lied to them at first, saying he was unaware of where the video game system was. After threat of calling the police, the boy apparently gave the toy back to his
mother, the paper reported. But the upset mother called police anyway.

Two officers responded and charged the child as a juvenile with petty larceny, although he was not jailed. The mother told the Herald that she didn't know what else to do with her son, so she called police. The paper reported she is a single mother and has been struggling with constant behavior
problems from the boy
. She said her son still showed no remorse when the police came. "I'm trying to get him some kind of help," the 27-year-old mother told the paper. "He's the type of kid who doesn't believe anything until it happens."

She said he has shoplifted, stolen money from her, punched a police officer and is nearing expulsion from school. She told the paper that she hopes this arrest will be a wake-up call for her son, because she worries about getting a call someday telling her he's been killed. The mother plans to have her son placed with the state Department of Juvenile Justice in Columbia at his court appearance, the Herald reported.

These vile cunts should be charged with child abuse. He's a child. A fucking child. Leaving temptation clearly outside where he can see it 24 hours a day and dwell on it every waking moment, they should be locked up and have the key thrown away. Give the kid to his Dad, if he hasn't been arrested for some bullshit reason yet. Its plain torture to expect a 12 year old to hold himself back - he's called a child for a reason - its because he isn't an adult yet and he can't make decisions the way an adult would, you vile police-calling cunts!

I think this is the single mothers' version of "Wait till your Dad comes home." Just as the government has taken over the husband's role of provider, so has the long arm of the law taken the place of the heavy hand of the father. Women are aware that the police are there to serve and protect them, the vagina-possessors, and they make full use of that privilege. Even now, the mother shows no fucking remorse for subjecting a 12 year old to the police. She should be charged with child abuse, and her grandmother with her. Vile cunts. The grandmother is not fit to be called "Granny."

Epidemic of wife-beating? Hardly.

From the comments...

The laws are stacked against fathers because of the men who did horrible things to their families in the 70's and early 80's and unfortunately fathers like myself are paying for it.

From what I've seen there's allot of men that left their wives and never paid a dime in support back then. The men left according to the feminists and fathers were never accountable. Slowly that changed. It has changed drastically and has crossed the line of accountablity into steaking our rights to our children.

We have been fed lies and deceit.

The fact is that there was no explosion of violence against women in the 60s, none in the 70s, and none before that. Men always protected women, whether they were their wives, their fiancees, their acquaintances, or just strangers. There was a powerful social contract which enforced chivalry and gentlemanly behavior, and it is feminist revisionism that makes us think that women used to be mistreated before all the heavy-handed laws that make all men perpetrators and all women victims. Today, almost all "deadbeat dads" are men who literally can not afford to pay the exhorbitant and unjust child support they are assigned. These men are often seasonal workers, whose in-season paychecks are counted as steady income and they are literally told to come up with the difference or go to jail. Naturally, women who somehow managed to get kicked off the gravy train (custody) actually constitute a higher percentage of deadbeats, with fewer of them going to jail, although they are almost always assigned less support to begin with.

Feminism relies heavily - very heavily - on revisionism. It takes the view that if people can't study the actual past, those who remember it as it was will die off, and pretty soon there will only be people who "remember" what they have been told happened in the past. This is why feminism has made such a big push into the educational system, being as intertwined with it as a parasite creeper around a tree, sucking the life out of it to feed itself. Feminist philosophy has firmly entrenched itself around every aspect of the educational system, from Kindergarten through High School and on through College, poisoning young minds and setting millions of boys up for failure.

Revisionism manifests itself in many ways, I'm sure you can think of a few. Do tell us if you can. For example, the tradition of men going to jail - debtor's prison - is swept under the rug, while lies and deceptions like the Rule of Thumb myth are spread widely in an effort to justify feminism's position and evil actions. Revisionism is how feminism conjures up injustices where there were none. Its modus operandi is simple - fling as much shit as you can at men, and some will stick. Other men will see to it.

Impressions of the Sansa e260 mp3 player

After that little post about selecting an mp3 player, I decided to talk about the mp3 player I just bought, a Sansa e260. It has 4 GB capacity, and a number of nice features which I like and which set it apart from the competition. And its a not a fucking iPod, which everybody seems to be rockin' out to these days.

The first, most obvious feature is the mechanical jogwheel. The layout of the wheel and the surrounding buttons is reminicent of the first iPod, which, funnily enough, was similar in capacity - 5GB. But it was a LOT more expensive and a lot bigger. I got the e260 for $99 after a $30 rebate, whereas a Nano 4GB (which this player competes with) is always $199 from Apple.

The wheel works just like you think it should - it has no stop, and you can scroll it faster to go faster. Not adaptive, but it works well enough. The buttons surrounding the wheel are a different story. They are too small, almost countersunk, and are too close to the edge of the wheel, making them difficult to press and frustrating to use. The center button is big and easy to press.

Switching on the player, you are greeted with a nice Sandisk logo and it boots up relatively quickly. The iPod does boot up faster, but it is in a "sleep" mode, while the Sansa switches completely off when you press the power button. This means that the Sansa's battery will last longer if you put the player aside for long periods of time between uses.

The interface is very well laid out, pretty to look at, and easy to use. I have no complaints about it. What I do have a complaint with is the actual wheel and buttons - they are surprisingly cheap, compared to the rest of the player. They don't feel solid and there's a lot of play. When I was researching this model, I thought it was because all the units I had seen were display units, so they must get punished. But mine had cheap-feeling buttons right out of the box.

When you boot up the player for the first time, there's a pleasant surprise waiting for you - Sandisk has included about 20 songs on the player and my battery was half-full, so you can literally buy it, open it (if you can cut the hard-as-a-diamond packaging without sustaining multiple lacerations) and start rocking. The songs aren't half-bad either.

There is a much more comprehensive review here, so I'll just list my impressions.

I love the looks of the player, it looks very classy. Its thicker than the Nano, but its like comparing a pencil to a pen - both are thin enough to be pocketable. If you are interested, it is pretty much as thin as a Motorola SLVR as opposed to a Samsung Trace.

The front and back attract fingerprints, but not as much as a 1st Gen Nano. The video is a cool feature, but I've never used it and I don't plan to. On to the photos:

As you can see, it is a wee bit thicker than a Nano with a case.

Some of my peeves with it:
- The wheel and the buttons are surprisingly, damningly cheap. They feel cheap as hell.
- Playlists are only supported with WMP, in MTP mode. Fuck you, Sandisk.
- The FM radio uses the USB cord as an antenna. This is the first music player I've seen that doesn't use the earphone cord as the antenna.
- MTP mode with WMP10 isn't really that nice, I haven't tried it with WMP11.
- MicroSD slot is not available in MTP mode.
- MSC mode is OK, but the player takes ages to boot up after disconnecting it from USB. Luckily, it doesn't delay the database updating until you switch it on, it does it right after disconnecting the USB cable.
- Back and front are prone to fingerprints, but less so than the iPods.

Overall its a great player for the money, you would pay twice as much for the Nano if you catch this player on sale. Every mp3 player has issues. Oh, and it comes with a slipcover, which is great if you don't feel like paying $15.99 or whatever for one.

Women shop a lot, are victims

The Daily Mail is an excellent source of material on female issues - just pay them a visit once a day to keep the fire for anti-feminism in your heart burning.

Now, they tell us that Women spend eight years of their life shopping.

While keeping up appearances and indulging in "a little" retail therapy - and keeping their families fed and clothed - the average woman will shop for an astonishing 25,184 hours and 53 minutes over a period of 63 years.

If the average expedition lasted the length of a full working day - from 9am to 5pm - that would be 3,148 days trudging around the shops, or just over eight-and-a-half years.

Predictably, the article takes a whining tone, and the overall feel of the article is "We are such VICTIMS!" and as you get to the end, it is confirmed by the comments.

I wonder just how many of these women they studied have families to "keep fed and clothed." This was the first item, as if most women shop for their families by necessity all the damn time. Always always you will find that the mainstream media will imply that women are angels, while men are non-entities, or devils. In this article, they dare not criticize women for doing what everyone knows is a soulless activity, like masturbating but even emotionally emptier. The things you own end up owning you.

The poll also showed women will go window shopping 51 times a year, spending 48 hours and 51 minutes just looking for their next purchase.

And of course, the resident mangina has something to say about that... Notice how quick he is to defend women, the wikkle babies can't do no harm, can they! He is probably patting himself on the back right now for being womyn's white knight.

Stewart Macphail, of GE Money, said: "Women clearly dedicate a lot of time to making sure they find the best deals and the most suitable items for their needs.

Oh please. Women clearly dedicate a lot of fucking time to shopping because someone is out there working to pay for it.

And the first comment...
The reason we have to spend so much time shopping is because the men in our lives dont! They dont go to the supermarket on a regular basis, they dont shop for our clothes, we end up shopping for them and then returning items that dont fit! And we do all of the Christmas shopping even for his family! One of the other main reasons it takes so long is because the supermarkets move stuff around every few weeks!
- Colette, Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada

Waaah waah waaa! The men! The stores! The men in the stores!! We are victims of the world around us!!!
The men don't shop for us, we have to justify our constant trips to the market somehow, so we end up finding something for the men along the way to the checkout, then the ungrateful bastards have the gall to complain that we don't know what they wear or what size they wear it in!!!!!! WE ARE VICTIMS, ALL OF US!! WE ARE INDEPENDENT WOMYN BUT STILL NEED TO FIND SOMEONE TO BLAME FOR OUR FUCKED-UP DECISIONS!!!!!!! Waaah waaa*choke*

... Ahem. So our resident victim has shouted herself hoarse, she will be back later to complain about how she's a victim with a bad throat. Let's hope she develops laryngitis.

Oh, here's another one, this one by a very independynt wom4n in Scotland:
Yeah, all very interesting, but is there a similar study about how many hours men spend in the pub!
- Heather Mclean, Dundee, Scotland

Along with that, let's do a study on how many men tank up with their girlfriend's or wife's money. He's probably going to the pub to escape from your shrieking, you frickin banshee. Tone it down a little, take off your trousers and put away those garden shears you were going to cut off his balls with, and maybe show him a little appreciation. Jesus, goddamn females have to be trained in everything. That's probably why the therapist/emotional consultant business is growing so fast.
