5 Congress trying to extort Rod Rosenstein is like Mueller trying to extort Trump.

If Rosenstein can ignore constitutionally obligated Congessional oversight, Trump can ignore Mueller.

11 In my early 20s, my girlfriends and i frequently went out to dinner w/guys who we were not interested in romantically if we were particularly poor and hungry that week, and then we would develop a headache or stomach ache at the end of the meal. Not exactly the same, but not exactly different either.

A guy expecting sex after a single dinner date is an idiot. You buy dinner on the expectation that she'll give you a chance to impress her, and that she'll try to present herself well to you. And hopefully you'll both want a second date.

Yep. And there were a LOT of idiots in LA in the early 80s. And sometimes the guys who we were not that excited about initially did impress- not enough for sex on the first date, but enough to get a second or third date.

118 11 In my early 20s, my girlfriends and i frequently went out to dinner w/guys who we were not interested in romantically if we were particularly poor and hungry that week, and then we would develop a headache or stomach ache at the end of the meal. Not exactly the same, but not exactly different either.

Posted by: Lizzy

Easy.

The entire idea of chivalry has been one long conspiracy leading up to the modern day, in which the rug is now being pulled out from under the women who trusted in chivalry, and the entire concept, the whole shebang, is now revealed as the mother of all long wind-up pranks.

Men have literally been planning this, generation by generation, for centuries , speaking only in hushed whispers and knowing grins. Every time a man's held a door open for a woman, and another man has seen, they exchange The Look. "One day, brother in arms, one day soon..."


The whole thing has been a running joke by the Patriarchy since the Dark Ages, and we are now witnessing the payoff.

Trying to think of something else that isn't secured before you use/have/consume it.

Parking? But then you have to get out of the gate. Everything else is paid up front or has a monetary consequence like "data," ie they have your info and you'd have to get a new phone.

You know how grandmothers think the perfect present for grandsons is a new wallet? Went out on a dinner date with girlfriend. Ran up a rather impressive bill. Pulled out wallet and there's no Amex. Just five dollars in foreign currency. My younger brothers exact same looking wallet, which he had put on the top of a dresser we shared.

It gets worse. Date has no money. Got a family member to drive to the restaurant with money. They could not find my wallet.

It seems to me that whoever does the inviting pays and men usually do the inviting at the outset.
But, just based on what I see from my kids and their friends, the women chip in or pick up a tab after a couple of dates.
Or they invite the guy somewhere and pay.

There's a lot of casual Dutch-treat stuff. Girl invites guy to go to a ballgame, buys the tickets. Guy insists on buying hotdogs or beer. That kind of thing.

208 Speaking of heroes, never say die.

June 4, 1923 was an unusual day for thirty-five-year-old jockey Frank Hayes.

Hayes was riding a bay mare named Sweet Kiss, a horse owned by Miss A. M. Frayling, in the steeplechase race at Belmont Park on Long Island, New York. Steeplechase as much a speed race as it is an obstacle course. In this race, the horse and rider have to make jumps over fences and ditches of water. Hayes' steeplechase race was on a two-mile course. This was only his second time wearing racing silks and he was considered a long shot with 20-1 odds.

The race was very close. The race favorite was J. S. Cosden, who was riding Gimme. Throughout the race, Gimme and Sweet Kiss were separated only by two or three lengths. It was a nail-biter. Rounding the last turn, Sweet Kiss almost collided with Gimme but was able to right himself. With the finish line approaching, the two dug in. Sweet Kiss crossed over first by a length and a half. Both horses slowed into a walk. Hayes had won his first race!

The excitement and sweet taste of victory was short-lived. The spectators noticed that Hayes was bent over Sweet Kiss. The spectators thought was he was just adjusting a stirrup. Then Hayes dropped to the ground while the horse stepped over him and continued to walk. A crowd went to help Hayes, among them was Dr. John A. Voorhees the track's physician. Dr. Voorhees quickly examined Hayes and pronounced him dead.

In a New York Times article dated the day after his day, said that he had actually dead right after crossing the finish line and bringing Sweet Kiss to a walk. However, others say differently. According to Guinness World Records, Hayes died during the race - before Sweet Kiss crossed the finish line. He is now cited as the only jockey to win a race while dead.

Yeah lots of stuff going on, lots of really outrageous stuff going on, but this was a pretty dramatic tell. The guy obviously is very unclear on the concept of his role, and the constitutional order. And he's the deputy AG.


And he is supposed to be supervising Mueller. Whose appointment - clearly - was not compliant with the relevant DOJ reg to start with. Who hired several key people now hurtling towards plea deals for crimes of corruption of an historic nature - and who basically tried to hide their dismissal once the IG had uncovered their perfidy.


Congress is showing once again it, more than any other institution, is responsible for the constitutional unraveling in the US, due to its failure to assert its powers and actually take responsibility.

Women now 'have sex like a man' and this dude is now getting to 'date like a woman' (as LASue confirmed).

There is something to that, but a date is a sort of social contract where you both tacitly agree to certain behavior and a dance of sorts. If one skips out or breaks that contract, they are the dishonorable one.

Commit injustice against individuals of the enemy group as some sort of reparation for their favored group.

I'm a millenial and I can safely say I'd rather pay. Seriously, I'd rather just fucking pay. Take the guess work out of it. I hate the awkward moment where the check comes and it becomes this bizarre culinary Mexican standoff. I would pick up the tab gladly to avoid that 1 second of "who blinks?"

Honestly, if there's anything about SJWism/feminism that has pissed me off the most it's detonating very easy-to-understand social norms for men. Chivalry is simple and easy for me to understand. This no-man's-land thing where some women want to be treated like guys but others secretly still want the chivalry thing is extremely confusing.

And I think it's fair that if you invite someone to dinner, you offer to pay. I don't think that applies to suggesting grabbing dinner with an ordinary friend, though. UNLESS you're explicitly buying them dinner as a treat.

Nah, he's better off. They don't need to date in high school. There is plenty of time for that. We still think the paradigm of marrying in your early 20s and thus "dating" in your teens is accurate. It is not. They're too young in this culture. Hell, businesses aren't even offering insurance until you turn 26 because they know you can stay on your parents'. The whole girlfriend in high school just leads to heartbreak, drama, and potential abortions. I discourage dating until maybe senior prom. Hell, "dating" is mostly spending all your time texting a nitwit constantly anyway.

Boys dropped the over-texters toot sweet. Met nitwits in college they practiced on. No one needs to date in high school.

It sucks when you get older. The internet has killed a lot of social activities. People stay at home and watch Netflix or play video games. If they want to hook up they go on Tinder. Meanwhile, social media creates the illusion that everyone else is living a far better life than you.

I love social dancing, tango, swing, etc., but around here the dances are full of old folks trying to stay active. When I lived in Colorado Springs, there was a Catholic Singles group that met on Sunday nights at the bar, but most of the people in the group were runners. That was their "thing", which made it annoying since I hate running.

247 Some chick at Harvey Weinstein's company is now suing him and the company, claiming that Weinstein "raped" her repeatedly over the period of years that she worked for the company.

Uh, "rape"? No doubt this young woman didn't particularly want to have sex with Weinstein, who is a fat, ugly, nasty pig of a man. But after he made it clear to her that it was a condition of her continued employment, she didn't have to submit. She could have quit and sued him, because what he was doing was clearly illegal. Instead, she made a calculated decision that it was in her economic best interests to stay, keep quiet, and submit to Weinstein's improper and illegal demands. That's not "rape," it's more like prostitution.

Well. we didn't brag or giggle about them; it was more like, "Huh, you're going to dinner with X? I thought you didn't think he was that cute?" "I don't, but I'm starving." (or "Im bored" or "I want to go to x party") Sometimes it turned out well- i wound up dating one of those guys for 3 years.

Yeah - I read his supposed bitch-slapping of his accuser (who stated that he tried to take advantage of her in her hotel room) which started off pretty well as these thongs go - with a "this is utter fabrication, from a woman of no consequence who was known to be less than talented and eventually left our company after NOT bringing herself glory or advancement, and deservedly so - how could she or anyone who know same think I would jeopardize my career, family and marriage over such a person, not an iota of truth, etc. etc." And I say to myself - "wow he is kid of really punching the crapola out of this woman!" then the next paragraph starts :
"of course I did go to her hotel room, where we re alone together, and sitting on the couch . . . but nothing happened like she said it did" then there's a lengthy explanation of distances between them, what happened in the hotel room etc." and I did a 180 degree to - "what? Mr. family man paragon of virtue - you went to your single co-employee's hotel room ? wtf?"

I think he's toast if a few more women show up and, well, they made the #metoo rules so - petard, hoist: some assembly required.

This.

The internet has really killed a lot of peoples socialization skills. In the NY metro area, there is also a significant attitude problem with the younger male population where they believe they should be approached. No self respecting woman does that, and if they do are headed for disaster. If you are the never settle type, you need to move to get into a relationship that will last.

If you go to clubs- like some of the dog clubs, hiking clubs, cars, church clubs,shooting club, etc.- whatever your interest is, that is mostly where you meet people who are better grounded.

389 9TH CIRCUIT: Homeless man can sue LA -- over 18 euthanized pigeons!

I just read the story and it's actually pretty upsetting. Homeless guy had the birds in improvised cages. Some of the birds were in bad shape, but some were healthy. The officers initially were going to let him keep the healthy birds as long as he could get them into some sort of residence. Guy couldn't name a place he'd keep them, so the cops seized all of the birds.

They told him he had 10 days to request a post-seizure hearing, but before the 10 days ended, they euthanized the birds. Supposedly the vet said they could have some sort of pathogen.

This isn't completely cut and dried. Certainly the homeless guy was not in any position to keep pets properly. But we don't know if the unhealthy birds were that way due to poor care or simply unhealthy birds he managed to catch. Most of all, it's really crappy to kill the birds before the legally required amount of time had passed.

Do I trust that the vet really spent any amount of time examining the supposedly healthy birds and found, to a reasonably likelihood, they were carrying a pathogen? No, not really.

THIS.
Even if your main reason for wanting to be more socially active is so you can meet a prospective mate, always ask yourself, "Would I like to do this activity even if I KNEW I wouldn't meet a special someone?"
If the answer is yes, go for it. If not, skip it.

406 Historically, men have been just as prone to this game as women have. (lovely women invites him to room, he passes out quickly, wakes up in an alley with no wallet, no nothing)

That's not how you play the badger game. You pick a sucker who has money, get him to your room, get hot and heavy, then the "husband" busts in and demands money to let you leave unharmed.

Yep.
Dating, everyone is artificial and on their best behavior, playing a role. Their interaction with other people is extremely limited, and you have little to no chance for any analysis and input about your date partner from people you know and trust. Its just about guaranteed to go wrong.

I remember a good plot on some show like this - beautiful girl entices an older wealthy man up to her room, starts making love and suddenly she is laying in his bed, naked and apparently dead. Hotel detective and a local cop burst in, pronounce her dead, tell rich man he's going to be held for questioning. He is terrified, offers to pay them thousands of dollars of cash that he was going to use for some deal, if they'll just let him get out of town. They reluctantly agree. Final scene shows the girl (completely recovered, the hotel dick, and the fake cop sitting around a table, laughing and splitting up the loot.

But when they're dancing, they're completely in control over how they look. You don't have to be tall, good looking, or even in shape. If you're a guy you can look good dancing and it's entirely a learned behavior that you can practice. You don't have to worry about any of those unfortunate genetic factors that are holding you back.

don't know if the unhealthy birds were that way due to poor care or
simply unhealthy birds he managed to catch. Most of all, it's really
crappy to kill the birds before the legally required amount of time had
passed.



Do I trust that the vet really spent any amount of time examining
the supposedly healthy birds and found, to a reasonably likelihood, they
were carrying a pathogen? No, not really.

It is cut-and-dried. Street pigeons are disease-ridden winged rats.

485 There was a similar episode in a British TV show during a trip to Russia. I think it was "Skins".

============================
It was also a major plot line in James Michener's novel "Centennial".

486 She said I need you take a sip first to make sure you didn't put
anything into the drink. I laughed and said you're kidding right? She
said no . So I raised the glass and shotgunned the entire glass and said
nope , nothing in the drink. Set the glass down and walked away.
======================

Eh. She's willing to drink a glass of wine that you've taken a sip from? Sounds like she's interested enough in you to share a glass. -1

488 >>>188 There was only one time I went out on a date even though I was not really interested at all. A previous relationship ended and this guy down the hall asked me out for dinner. Wasn't interested but thought eh, better than eating alone and he will pick up the tab. Two years later, we got married.

489 If an atheist turns a Catholic single widow, does he go to double-probation Hell, or just the regular Hell?
Posted by: Zod at May 02, 2018 01:20 PM

Eh? What was that supposed to mean, O Minor Deity? "Turns a Catholic widow?" You're turning into a Catholic widow? Sex change in your future as well as a conversion experience, you are murdering a Catholic widow, or you're turning her into an Atheist? Very unclear as well as silly..

490 Some guy is actually doing a comedy sketch I saw years ago?

I believe it was on Comedy Central. Some guy riffed on asking out a gal he couldn't stand and took her to the nicest restaurant in town with $5 in his pocket. He then ditched the gal.

It's probably been 20 years since I saw that sketch.

491 You mean the same kind of scam women have been running......since the creation of mankind? I guess the news coverage is warranted since it is a man bites dog story.

493 I just think there is something sad about a woman who admits she uses a dating app to find true love. How honestly can you write your own profile? Mine would be "DWF, retired. I like throwing sticks for dogs, vodka on the rocks, red meat and good books. Long silences don't bother me. Nice cars don't impress me. Snow storms and lightning excite me. No amount of spray controls my curly hair, and I could lose a few pounds. Pizza for dinner is fine, just order a good chianti. And be prepared to laugh, a lot, unless you voted for Barack or Hillary because then I'd just laugh in your face, and that wouldn't be polite."

494 so he left the tab for her to pay?



the poor stiffed waiter.
