and what causes lack of money and stupidity?
Stupidity causes lack of money and stupidity is generally genetic.


There are only 2 pills available to cure stupidity, a cyanide pill or a high velocity lead pill.

That would be most generous of you, thank you kindly.


Does it come with cross hairs to help eliminate some of the stupidity factor?

....Should we women in our late 20ies, early 30ies keep our hopes up? Where did all the gentlemen go or is there a new kinda gentlemen-like behaviour we don`t quite get yet? Fact is women want to be self supporting and independent, but we still kinda hope for men to take the initiative. Are REAL gentlemen extinct?
My mother's advice was to never marry in your 20s. Everyone changes in their 20s and married women end up making far more sacrifices than their husbands.

Also, read The Game by Neil Strauss (online for free). Stay away from men like this that play mind games and you'll be fine.

Yea, they sacrifice their diet regimes and sex life, and sacrifice their careers and bodies to have the children that they crave. It's a hard world out there for women. It's so awful, I might just shed a tear. ;-(

Re: Where did all the gentlemen go?

Well, if we are going to get back "on topic" and focus on questionable male sociology, I have a question. What is actually missing in today's society? Males who are gentle, or males who are men?

Sometimes in the gym, I say "If you are 100% sure that you are going to finish the set, you aren't lifting enough." And while I know that barbells aren't for everybody, I think that every male should partake in some activity which reminds him how to man up and embrace a bit of risk and/or pain.

It seems to me that, if you are manly, you can choose to be a gentleman or an asshole, and manners mean more when they are a choice.

Why should a man "stay in touch with his masculine side"? What is "his masculine side"?

What do you mean by "gentlemen"? Someone with an umbrella and a horrendous appetite for black tea?
