“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil.

About 15 months ago I wrote a post in which I pointed out that, from the perspective of the highly intelligent, the reason why they are alone is not because of themselves – but because of other people. It is immensely taxing upon the patience and mental...

Retreat is not a solution

Do you reckon maybe that if Joffrey got laid before he got poisoned, he would have been less of an irritating little twat? The one and only Blackdragon posted up an article recently which pointed out a few home truths about the fact that men who cannot get laid (most...

This is exactly how it is

The clever folks over at Caveman Circus have put together a few handy memes showing what it is like being an introvert in a highly extroverted society, and I have to say, they are uncannily accurate: The thing to remember about introverts is that we are not, for...

The old ways are best

Gentlemen, have you ever gotten the feeling that the world has gotten just a little bit too advanced (read: far up its own arse) for its own good? By this, I mean that you sometimes look around and find yourself thinking that the modern conveniences that we take for...

Watch through fingers

Stop me if any of this sounds familiar. Overweight sad-sack American Beta can’t get a handle on his weight, his looks, his finances, or his dating life, and starts to look overseas for a “good traditional woman”. He finds a young, slim, somewhat...
