The reality of online dating and the change in power structure.

Recent studies have shown that women are more picky about whom they interact online with than in the real world. Though men still outnumber women by a narrow wide margin (less than 3%) on dating sites, the fact is women are choosier and tend to be very selective on who they date.
Women are more likely to accept dates face to face than they are to accept a date request online. Why is this?
Because women feel safer and are less likely to acquiesce to a date request simply because they feel intimidated or pressured into accepting a date. The old adage that women are less superficial than men has been blown out of the water, in fact, if online statistics are accurate women are far more superficial than men.
Okcupid found that with a ranking of 1 to 5 only 5% of men were found to be a 5, the vast majority of men fell in the 2 ranking and women were 3 times more likely to rank men a 1. Men on the other hand ranked 30% of women a 5 and all but 5% were ranked equal to or above a 3 on the scale.
Is this a bad thing? No, it means that women are now given a venue to be true to themselves. What we are seeing is that a small minority of men are dating a larger segment of women. Though studies have also shown that the more selective women also tend to have the shorter relationships as well. That is up to the individual to decide whether it's a good thing or not.
All in all, women now have the power when it comes to dating, they can pick and choose and "like" and "love" to express their desire at their leisure, and in the end it comes down to what they want. Men, in regards to dating in the new century are taking a back seat and have a less dominant role compared to the previous centuries.
In my opinion this is just evolution at work.

Reddit? Well you should have! Your guide to the one stop social news site.

You probably heard about Reddit or know someone who has gone on about it so much it made you want to shoot yourself or them or possibly both you and them. To avoid those types of situations in the future I'm going to tell you what you need to know and why you should use it. That way next time someone start's explaining the website to you, you can tell them you know what Reddit is and roll your eyes condescendingly but until then lets break down the site.

Reddit is basically a social news site, what that means is that all the stories are submitted by users like me or hopefully you. The stories are then ranked by the users in order of popularity, you can choose to vote an article up or down according to how relevant you feel it is. The site is broken down into what are called subreddits, those are groups where users post links or original content about topics relevant to the subreddit. Do you like cat memes (Fuck yeah you do) there's a subreddit for that. Like news about "50 Shades of Grey?" (Fuck, no you don't) Well you don't have to subscribe to that. See that's how it works, when you find a group you like, you subscribe to it, which is the same as hitting the "Like" button on Facebook. So when you want to find out what's new you can logon and look through your subreddits and check out the areas you enjoy. Be warned there are a lot of subreddits and you will be overwhelmed at first. Also, you need to be careful, there are a lot dark seedy rooms there, with all sorts of naughty stuff you might not want to see. I mean you can do a search for anything and you will find a link about it. That's a good thing and a bad thing.

When you register, it's not Facebook, so don't use your actual name as your login/screen name, pick something original and interesting. Also be warned the whole Reddit scene can be as cliquey as high school once in awhile. Like every social site it has it's drama and the key to that is to just tear into the bastards until they bleed, just kidding, just ignore them. 

There are other social media sites out there as well and you can search them out but honestly, Reddit is the first and biggest around. So now you know what Reddit is so follow the links I've outlined and check it out for yourself. Remember that the best thing about Reddit is that it educates you and provides a forum to discuss the topics you are interested in. Now go out there and have fun.

Chrissy Tiegan knows how to do Twitter right.

So Chrissy Tiegan went to the Met Ball in NYC and was nice enough to tweet some pics for everyone while there and you know what, she knows how to tweet right. We don't want to hear this political  crap or this bullshit melodrama. No, we want to hear about hot girls stroking other girls hair or see pictures of hot girls with pizza or with girls putting pizza on guy's shoulders. Wondering why would a guy let a hot girl put pizza on his $1000 jacket, duh... because guy's will let pretty girls do anything. So follow the link to see more of Chrissy Tiegan's, uhm.... tweets and see the boobs I promised you earlier today.

Chris Tiegan knows how to twitter....

50 Shades of Grey Too Sexy for R Rating...

According to the cast members of "50 Shades of Grey," being filmed now, the movie may be too sexy for an R rating. Which I guess is bad news for someone somewhere, since Universal Studios has already said they will not put out a NC-17 version of a movie based on a novel that's essentially a soft core porn BDSM story (and a literary travesty.)

I mean I think the main reason they are saying this is that it's going to be the only way for women to get their significant others to go sit and watch the movie. Seriously do you want to be the dude seen going into the screening of "50 Shades of Grey." There better be some really awesome sex in that movie to justify the embarrassment of being seen entering the theater. On top of that you have to sit through 120 minutes of some story about a woman finding her own femininity in sexual bondage and submission.... So yeah be sure to go see this movie or stay home and look at internet porn. I'm guessing either will be about the same in entertainment value.

Insane Clown Posse are officially the worst rap band ever...

According to GQ Magazine, the go to for all things hip hop, the Insane Clown Posse are the worst rappers of all time. I mean I don't know how much stock I would put into their ranking when it comes to hip hop but I'm going to have to say I may agree here. Not only does the Insane Clown Posse's music suck but they are kind of creepy and I think that's what sells their music. They have a strangle hold on a specfic target audience. Those confused young men who really don't know how to grasp their plunge into the testosterone filled adolescence that is young manhood, so they listen to bad rap music from white guy's dressed in clown makeup. Oh come on we all have done worse so lets take it easy on them.

Anyways, the Insane Clown Posse wasn't going to take this lying down though, their official comment went like this...

“Insane Clown Posse has been selling rap records, rocking rap stages and making rap money for over 20 years now. You can’t rack up all that rap success for this long and still be ‘the worst ever.’ GQ magazine should stick to what they know: Dressing preppy metrosexuals. Why don’t you say that to my face!”

Yeah man, say it to their face! 

So yeah, that's the stuff I have for you today. I know I'm sorry. I'll try and find some boobs or something to post later to make up for it.

Humble Bundle, get games and feel good about yourself while doing it!

I wanted to tell everyone about "Humble Bundle." They are a non-profit company that raises money by receiving donations from avid gamers and in exchange developers provide games. So this is how it works, lets say you go to Humble Bundle and see a group of games that you like and you are feeling generous, contrite or just greedy and decide to donate some money. Well you will always get some of the games listed but typically you have to donate a minimum amount to get all the games listed. The way you get your games is via digital format whether it's through Steam or direct download depends on the developer providing the game but so far Steam has always been an option for PC downloads. They also have quite a few Android bundles on their site to.

As you can tell I'm a big fan and typically I donate what I can to them and if I already have the Steam keys for the games I just wait and gift them as presents later to people. So check out and get on their email list if you are a gamer. You'll be getting some great games and helping some great causes as well.
