  1. Re: Your Government Is Trying To Kill You & Depopulate the Planet

    I've visited the Georgia Guidestones... was nearby, figured why not?

    The push toward EVs, I think, has two primary goals: line the pockets of crooked politicians via insider trading and kickbacks...
  2. Re: I don't get what with my married friend & in relationship friend keep suggesting me to get into a relationship

    You reminded me of something my own divorce lawyer said to me (and this was a man who had been practicing law for close to 50 years at that point; in fact, he retired a couple of years later). When...

    Re: Greetings From Brooklyn, NY

    You were smart... I was married for a decade, and although my ex didn't buy items that were expensive individually, she bought so damn MANY of them that we weren't able to accumulate any savings over...

    Re: Do any of you still do the online dating thing?

    No. I looked around a little bit just after my divorce in 2017, saw what a flaming trash heap these sites had become, and decided I didn't need that kind of drama after interacting with two or three...

    Re: Do any other Forum members enjoy dressing well?

    I drive an older piece of Japanese machinery -- a late-1990s Lexus coupe. I also used to drive a mid-1990s Jag XJ6. The Jaguar was considerably less reliable, but had a (slightly) nicer interior. ...
  6. Re: I finally reach the point where I truly do no care about women anymore

    Every once in a while, I start to think it would be fun to own a Pinzgauer, a Volvo 6x6, or even an old Deuce-and-a-half, just as something weird and unique to drive into town for groceries... but...

    Re: Intro: 10yrs, she left, took red pill

    I was married for 10 years, and in a relationship with her for 12 years in total. When she ran off to go live with a small-time thug (who subsequently beat her up, after which she apparently moved...
  8. Re: Data reveals women pay up to $7800 more to own a car

    I used to know a gal who went to a dealer's service department for a brake job on her SUV, which was only about 6 years old, and on which she still owed $22k... and they sold her a NEW SUV. The...
  9. Re: How to not feel guilty for doing what is right, or being assertive?

    I'm afraid that I don't have any magic advice, except that it gets easier the more you stand up for yourself. I was raised to NOT make a scene, or stand up for myself--but particularly since my...
  10. Re: What kind of lifestyle or attitude should a MGTOW have after abandoning the idea of marriage?

    My philosophy is that life does not *have* to have meaning. It can simply be. That isn't to say that you shouldn't do things you enjoy; by all means, do what brings you contentment -- but you don't...
  11. Re: A friend of mine became angry when I was honest with him.

    I enjoy confounding my more "progressive" friends and acquaintances by not following the news, except for what's going on in my County and the couple surrounding ones... blows their minds.

    Re: Do any other Forum members enjoy dressing well?

    I wear Polo or untucked button-down shirts from the thrift store (why would I pay $40 for ONE shirt, when I can get 4 to 8 for that price?) with jeans or other work pants. I've been mistaken for a...

    Re: What is more important to you, time or money/

    Time... Although *anyone* is replaceable at a job, the specialized and technical nature of my work means that after nearly a decade with the same employer, I've made myself sufficiently important to...

    Re: Overheard in the bathroom at Twin Peaks

    I took my (now ex-) wife along to junkyards on occasion; I should have left her at one.




    I'd rather go to an "old-man" bar any time.
  15. Re: What is up with various bluetooth devices show up whenever I am near people?

    There's no Bluetooth trackers in vaccines; the technology simply isn't there yet in terms of miniaturization, plus humans themselves make pretty good absorbers of the frequencies used for BT. There...

    Re: Prenup?

    I'll tell you my experience with a prenup: my ex-wife and I had one, at the insistence of HER mother, as her mother didn't want any eventual inheritance to become community property. I had my...
  17. Re: Here Are 17 New Games Activision Just Announced After Being Bought By Microsoft

    What are the odds I'd be able to install Win 11 on my old Q6600-based PC with 4 GB RAM (currently runs dual-boot Win XP / Linux Mint, and haven't even used it in several years)....? According to...

    Re: Any lawyers here?

    A chain of gas stations in my area does sell dyed, off-road diesel--but it's at a completely separate pump, away from the gas and road diesel pumps, with no pay-at-the-pump option. You have to go in...

    Re: Any lawyers here?

    So, the diesel nozzle being a different color, and probably on the opposite side of the pump, weren't a clue? Also, where is diesel still cheaper than gasoline? I can't remember a time that has...
  21. Re: Studies suggest men are happier if they never get married. Shocking!

    I'm not in the "never married" category; I was married for a decade, now been divorced for 5 years. I'll tell you this: I would have been happier if I'd never married. I was perfectly content...

  23. Re: How Am I Supposed To Like Humanity After Doing This Experiment

    Try not to take the behavior of strangers personally. I haven't touched dating sites in years, but even back when I did, it was a crapshow. Not saying that every woman on there was certifiably nuts...

    Tough for me to say, because I've always gravitated toward solitude and it doesn't bother me (rather, I prefer it). I like peace and solitude to work on my own interests, at my pace, without...
