Really Good Moments

In life there are always a series of moments that make you just feel good. I wouldn't go so far as to say that they are great moments, but they're really good. I'm not sure if they transcend for all people, but I'll give you a list of some of my Really Good Moments:

1. Whenever someone is speaking to another person and references something that you have said to them. It makes you think that people pay attention to what you say.

2. When my daughter calls me Dad. I like it so much more than Daddy. It makes it seem like she is growing up, but still needs me.

3. Peeing without using your hands. You ladies may not understand but this is a real joy for me. It never happens unless I'm walking around naked or find boxers with a huge urination slit in the front.

4. That cold feeling that goes down your throat when you drink something first thing in the morning, or when you're really thirsty.

5. When meeting someone, having them say, "So you are ________; I've heard so many good things about you."

6. Cracking your back.

7. When I learn that someone of high importance, intelligence, or respect; listens to Rap music. (Michael Eric Dyson, Cornell West, Barack Obama)

8. When anyone from Wheeling WV does anything that brings themselves and the state/city; POSITIVE attention.

9. When I see lists that don't go all the way to ten.

Feel free to think of a few of your own and list them in the comments. I think it's good to take small harmful life inventories every now and again; but that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?

16 Laws of Power (the Women edition)

I'm not sure what to think of these. Someone who claimed to be an "O.G. of Women and Relationships", said that these "Laws" are vital when dealing with women. I can't wait to see what you guys think.

I. Never say 'I Love You' first
Women want to feel like they have to overcome obstacles to win a man's heart. They crave the challenge of capturing the interest of a man who has other women competing for his attention, and eventually prevailing over his grudging reluctance to award his committed exclusivity. The man who gives his emotional world away too easily robs women of the satisfaction of earning his love. Though you may be in love with her, don't say it before she has said it. Show compassionate restraint for her need to struggle toward yin fulfillment. Inspire her to take the leap for you, and she'll return the favor a thousandfold.

II. Make her jealous
Flirt with other women in front of her. Do not dissuade other women from flirting with you. Women will never admit this but jealousy excites them. The thought of you turning on another woman will arouse her sexually. No girl wants a man that no other woman wants. The partner who harnesses the gale storm of jealousy controls the direction of the relationship.

III. You shall make your mission, not your woman, your priority
Forget all those romantic cliches of the leading man proclaiming his undying love for the woman who completes him. Despite whatever protestations to the contrary, women do not want to be "The One" or the center of a man's existence. They in fact want to subordinate themselves to a worthy man's life purpose, to help him achieve that purpose with their feminine support, and to follow the path he lays out. You must respect a woman's integrity and not lie to her that she is "your everything". She is not your everything, and if she is, she will soon not be anymore.

IV. Don't play by her rules
If you allow a woman to make the rules she will resent you with a seething contempt even a rapist cannot inspire. The strongest woman and the most strident feminist wants to be led by, and to submit to, a more powerful man. Polarity is the core of a healthy loving relationship. She does not want the prerogative to walk all over you with her capricious demands and mercurial moods. Her emotions are a hurricane, her soul a saboteur. Think of yourself as a bulwark against her tempest. When she grasps for a pillar to steady herself against the whipping winds or yearns for an authority figure to foil her worst instincts, it is you who has to be there... strong, solid, unshakable and immovable.

V. Adhere to the Golden Ratio
Give your woman 2/3 of everything she gives you. For every three calls or texts, give her two back. Three declarations of love earn two in return. Three gifts; two nights out. Give her two displays of affection and stop until she has answered with three more. When she speaks, you reply with fewer words. When she emotes, you emote less. The idea behind the golden ratio is twofold - it establishes your greater value by making her chase you, and it demonstrates that you have the self-restraint to avoid getting swept up in her personal dramas. Refraining from reciprocating everything she does for you in equal measure instills in her the proper attitude of belief in your higher status. In her deepest loins it is what she truly wants.

VI. Keep her guessing
True to their inscrutable natures, women ask questions they don't really want direct answers to. Woe be the man who plays it straight - his fate is the suffering of the beta. Evade, tease, obfuscate. She thrives when she has to imagine what you're thinking about her, and withers when she knows exactly how you feel. A woman may want financial and family security, but she does not want passion security. In the same manner, when she has displeased you, punish swiftly, but when she has done you right, reward slowly. Reward her good behavior intermittently and unpredictably and she will never tire of working hard to please you.

VII. Always keep two in the kitty
Never allow yourself to be a "kept man". A man with options is a man without need. It builds confidence and encourages boldness with women if there is another woman, a safety net, to catch you in case you slip and risk a breakup, divorce, or a lost prospect, leading to loneliness and a grinding dry spell. A woman knows once she has slept with a man she has abdicated a measure of her power; when she has fallen in love with him she has surrendered nearly all of it. But love is ephemeral and with time she may rediscover her power and threaten to leave you. It is her final trump card. Withdrawing all her love and all her body in an instant will rend your soul if you are faced with contemplating the empty abyss alone. Knowing there is another you can turn to for affection will fortify your will and satisfy your manhood.

VIII. Say you're sorry only when absolutely necessary
Do not say you're sorry for every wrong thing you do. It is a posture of submission that no man should reflexively adopt, no matter how alpha he is. Apologizing increases the demand for more apologies. She will come to expect your contrition, like a cat expects its meal at a set time each day. And then your value will lower in her eyes. Instead, if you have done something wrong, you should acknowledge your guilt in a glancing way without resorting to the actual words "I'm sorry." Pull the Bill Clinton maneuver and say "Mistakes were made" or tell her you "feel bad" about what you did. You are granted two freebie "I'm sorry"s for the life of your relationship; use them wisely.

IX. Connect with her emotions
Set yourself apart from other men and connect with a woman's emotional landscape. Her mind is an alien world that requires deft navigation to reach your rendezvous. Frolic in the surf of emotions rather than the arid desert of logic. Be playful. Employ all your senses. Describe in lush detail scenarios to set her heart afire. Give your feelings freedom to roam. ROAM. Yes, that is a good word. You're not on a linear path with her. You are ROAMING all over, taking her on an adventure. In this world, there is no need to finish thoughts or draw conclusions. There is only need to EXPERIENCE. You're grabbing her hand and running with her down an infinite, labyrinthine alleyway with no end, laughing and letting your fingers glide on the cobblestone walls along the way.

X. Ignore her beauty
The man who trains his mind to subdue the reward centers of his brain when reflecting upon a beautiful female face will magically transform his interactions with women. His apprehension and self-consciousness will melt away, paving the path for more honest and self-possessed interactions with the objects of his desire. This is one reason why the greatest Lotharios drown in more love than they can handle - through positive experiences with so many beautiful women they lose their awe of beauty and, in turn, their powerlessness under its spell. It will help you acquire the right frame of mind to stop using the words hot, cute, gorgeous, or beautiful to describe girls who turn you on. Instead, say to yourself "she's interesting" or "she might be worth getting to know". Never compliment a girl on her looks, especially not a girl you aren't fucking. Turn off that part of your brain that wants to put them on pedestals. Further advanced training to reach this state of unawed Zen transcendence is to sleep with many MANY attractive women (try to avoid sleeping with a lot of ugly women if you don't want to regress). Soon, a Jedi lover you will be.

XI. Be irrationally self-confident
No matter what your station in life, stride through the world without apology or excuse. It does not matter if objectively you are not the best man a woman can get; what matters is that you think and act like you are. Women have a dog's instinct for uncovering weakness in men; don't make it easy for them. Self-confidence, warranted or not, triggers submissive emotional responses in women. Irrational self-confidence will get you more pussy than rational defeatism.

XII. Maximize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses
In the betterment of ourselves as men we attract women into our orbit. To accomplish this gravitational pull as painlessly and efficiently as possible, you must identify your natural talents and shortcomings and parcel your efforts accordingly. If you are a gifted jokester, don't waste time and energy trying to raise your status in philosophical debate. If you write well but dance poorly, don't kill yourself trying to expand your manly influence on the dance floor. Your goal should be to attract women effortlessly, so play to your strengths no matter what they are; there is a groupie for every male endeavor. Except World of Warcraft.

XIII. Err on the side of too much boldness, rather than too little
Touching a woman inappropriately on the first date will get you further with her than not touching her at all. Don't let a woman's faux indignation at your boldness sway you; they secretly love it when a man aggressively pursues what he wants and makes his sexual intentions known. You don't have to be an asshole, but if you have no choice, being an inconsiderate asshole beats being a polite beta, every time.

XIV. Fuck her good
Fuck her like it's your last fuck. And hers. Fuck her so good, so hard, so wantonly, so profligately that she is left a quivering, sparking mass of shaking flesh and sex fluids. Drain her of everything, then drain her some more. Kiss her all over, make love to her all night, and hold her close in the morning. Own her body, own her gratitude, own her love. If you don't know how, learn to give her squirting orgasms.

XV. Maintain your state control
You are an oak tree. You will not be manipulated by crying, yelling, lying, head games, sexual withdrawal, jealousy ploys, pity plays, shit tests, hot/cold/hot/cold, disappearing acts, or guilt trips. She will rain and thunder all around you and you will shelter her until her storm passes. She will not drag you into her chaos or uproot you. When you have mastery over yourself, you will have mastery over her.

XVI. Never be afraid to lose her
You must not fear. Fear is the love-killer. Fear is the ego-triumph that brings abject loneliness. You will face your fear. You will permit it to pass over and through you. And when your ego-fear is gone you will turn and face your lover, and only your heart will remain. You will walk away from her when she has violated your integrity, and you will let her walk when her heart is closed to you. She who can destroy you, controls you. Don't give her that power over yourself. Love yourself before you love her.

After reading all that, I just ended up confused, angry, and a little intrigued. Most of it sounds like a recipe to be alone, but a few (IX, XII, & XIV) are dusted with tiny fragments of truth. Without getting to counselor-like; this sounds mostly like a confused, hurt, man who is trying to lash out at all the women who've ever hurt him in his life. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?

History part II

I didn't get to bask in the history as long as I may have liked. As most of you know, i live in the perpetually red state of West Virginia. I love my state and my city; but I have been repeatedly reminded where I am. Ever since the victory, there has been a unspoken tenseness and hostility in the air. Everyone wants to remind me that, "it's not like you are gonna personally experience a difference" now that the first black president is elected. It's a heavy feeling. Most white people that I come in contact with, now want to remind me that he is half white. As if to say that a full blooded black man couldn't have snuck by them. This whole "half white" notion, in my state and city, is laughable though. No one that I know of, sees people that way, unless they want to claim a redeeming quality about a person. My part of the world still lives in the One Drop Of Black Blood days. Racial tension is at an all time high while black aggression is at an all time low. It saddens me but just give me a tiny glimpse at the uphill battle that President Obama is up against. I'm not afraid of assassination. I'm not sure why, but I'm not. I'm just hurt by the asterisks that so many people are ready to place by his name before he has even taken office. Another area of concern is the pass that blatant and latent racist are trying to use by telling people that they voted for Obama. I had a co-worker actually ask me, "What if he is a Muslim and blows us all up, or locks up in concentration camps?" This person was dead ass serious too. I don't assume that all people are like the ones that I'm posting about. I also don't assume that these people are alone in their attitudes, actions, or beliefs. I just thought I could expect the joy of others to help me celebrate, and not just my own. I was wrong. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?

We did it. I can't believe it. I'm just gonna walk around my city today and see just how different it feels. If you are black and reading this, leave work or school or wherever, and just do you today. Bask in the history that was made. That's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?
