Comment of the Day

OldmanNZ cuts to the chase after an interaction with a chugger:

I got approached by the SPCA on the street yesterday, asking for donations.

You know how it goes, they talk nice, how was your day, what you do yo do… Blah blah get to the point.

She told me they look after animals, they have too many and need my help…$$.

I told her, if you have more than you can handle, just shoot them.

Then she got a little taken back and said, would you shoot people?

I said shooting animals is not illegal, I kill pests on the farm, shooting humans is illegal.

She kind of stop bothering me for donations after that.

No frangers, 100% effective and increases libido: Sounds like a win/win/win situation to me

Any contraceptive solution that doesn’t require frangers, is 100% effective AND increases your libido sounds like a miracle, too good to be true.

A contraceptive injection for men has been shown to be almost 100 per cent effective, and may also increase libido.

The hormone-based jab is designed to lower sperm counts by acting on the brain’s pituitary gland.

Over a year-long trial, nearly 96 per cent of couples relying on the injection to prevent unplanned pregnancies found it to be effective. During this time, only four pregnancies occurred among the men’s partners.

Arsehole or introvert?

There is a great article at New Yorker about arseholes…who aren’t, they’re introverts.

It certainly resonates with me.

I can be loud at times, and I’m not shy, so a lot of people assume that I’m an extrovert. But I’m not. I’m an introvert. When I explain this to people, they ask me, “Well, if you’re such an introvert, why are you talking to a group of strangers in an elevator? This is a social interaction that you initiated and could have easily avoided.” I don’t answer them. I just shake my head at how misunderstood the word “introvert” is these days.

For example, people think that if you’re an introvert, you don’t like parties. But, under the right circumstances, I actually do like parties. I find that the right amount of partying is to do so only on weekends or the funner weekdays (notTuesday) or whenever I’m in the mood to party. That being said, once I’m at a party, you won’t find me introducing myself to people, or thanking the host for having me, or going out of my way to show an interest in what someone else wants to talk about if it’s not me and my life, or any of that other extrovert stuff.   Read more »
