Are old journalists mostly stupid?


A lot of journalists are crying lately. They’re upset that they don’t have jobs anymore as they believe that they were entitled to those jobs for ever and a day. Experienced and prescient journalists who long ago made the transition to the internet have gone on record telling them to FOAD.

It’s all been rather interesting reading but today I received an article on my linkedin feed from a gentlemen called Walter Isaacson. The title of his piece is ‘These are the two original sins of the internet – And now it’s time to fix them’. The piece is as long and unwieldy as its title. Straight away my bullshit detector went into overdrive and I decided to read it through.

Sunday morning links and stuff.

It’s 7.30 on Sunday morning and as usual I’ve already been up for ages. There are a few things that caught my eye this week so let’s have a look.

Why women leave men they love.

Quite possibly the worst advice I have ever seen concerning how to save a marriage. Which must make this guy, (yes, unbelievably it was a guy who wrote that tosh), the very worst marriage counselor in the entire world. Which is saying something seeing as most of them are terrible. According to Mr Schanfarber, if your wife has decided to run off and shack up with the milkman it’s your fault.

Women in my office tell me: “Someone could come and sweep me off my feet, right out from under my husband.” Sometimes the realization scares them. Sometimes it makes them cry.

And what do you need to do to fix the problem and win her back?

Touch her with your full attention. Before you put your hand on her, notice the sensation in your hand. Notice what happens the moment you make contact. What happens in your body? What do you feel? Notice the most subtle sensations and emotions.

Fucking brilliant tip-top advice there, pal. Mind you, that’s what get when you take marriage advice from a Gamma male whose only qualification is a certificate in Hakomi therapy.

The good Captain outlines the traits the top 1% of marriageable women possess.

He missed one though; the best women are not obsessed with their nails.

Also when considering the good lady for a wife you might want to check out her crazy/hot coefficient.

And to finish off, yesterday my good lady unicorn went and took a photo for me that made me happy. She is a good girl.


And that’s all, folks!

The terror of freedom.

The differences between men and women have long been a source of amusement and humor, used to great effect in literature, television, theater, and other forms of popular entertainment. But with the rise of political correctness and the arrival of third-wave feminism things have taken a disturbing turn.

An email exchange I had with another writer threw up this example that he gave me:

Why, just a few literal minutes ago I passed a man in the street being photographed by two women (all in their 20s), and this must have been some university project. Anyway he was holding up a big sign that read ‘Men of Quality don’t fear Equality!’, and the look on his face as he was photographed… it was the sort of look one might have watching someone have sex with their wife. Completely emasculated and domesticated.

The traits of the Nu-Male.

A truly terrifying post was brought to my attention by Davis Aurini who is the narrator of my soon to be released audio book. In essence it is the opposite of what I am trying to achieve with the 28 traits of the modern man. Mark Citadel has laid out the six incarnations of what he terms the ‘nu-male’. Some of the videos are quite disturbing to watch.

The post in all its glory.

More ‘safe schools’ shenanigans.

It’s Friday in Australia so time to do some links and other stuff. Today the theme once again are our ‘good mates’ over at the safe schools program. Things are hotting up for them a bit as word gets out that maybe, just maybe, teaching 11 year old’s about cock to thigh strapping isn’t really what some parents intended when they wave their kiddies goodbye in the morning.
