Hope all is well with you down in Oklahoma. Finally taking a weekend off here. I am burned out. Been catching up on my long procrastinated and overdue
jobs around my house.
Yes, I understand that most of the recipients of the Darwin Awards are males. I think a lot of this is due to natural male stupidity...including
probably drunkenness and drugs...including to much television/movies...same thing to me here as being on drugs.
In my mind there is another reason in the psyche of women for which they do not naturally gravitate to this kind of award...and that is RISK. While
women when properly motivated will take risks...they to not tend toward arbitrary risk taking as do so many males. I think this is simply a female
awareness of the physical. Females are not wont to sacrifice their physical beauty in RISK...their calling card...their fallback position, ace in the
hand of cards, as are males. They understand the totality of what is at risk here from a female position...far more knowledgeably and intimately than
will most males...ever.
I think it is for this reason the female is not wont to undertake such foolishness as a career.
Do I think the male is very foolish in this...yes.?? Hence my severe lack of interest in the gods of sports...the swimsuit edition..Hooters...beer
and other drink....and or other artificial trappings of being male.
As you more than others out here know..I am not that interested in taking RISK for females or even males ...who should have prepared for this
themselves....but can prepare for tonight's game or television program...shopping experiences...et al.
In like manner I know that you more than most of the women out here on ATS/BTS ..have unburdened or relieved yourself of much of this baggage of
pride...wise move Whitewave. And do most certainly keep your gun loaded...I do!! Keep them in the X-ring Whitewave!!
Speaking of the X-ring...hoping to get in some range time this weekend. It is long overdue as a result of the overtime I have been working. Expect I
will have more accuracy throwing my AR downrange than shooting it. LOL LOL.
As Whitewave has many times and succinctly stated...women are always in the survival mode.
Now hold on just a minute, O.T. I hope you're not suggesting that I mean women are parasites, manipulating their hosts in order to survive? My
feathers are thoroughly ruffled here. Please clarify what you think I meant by that statement.
I recall you making that statement about women being more in the survival mode than males...from here...
I have had a number of opportunities since that post to have this confirmed. I think about it from that viewpoint you posted with a new and more
intense awareness than previously. It opened my eyes to more of the aspect of a woman's natural subtlety as a working tool..from a standpoint of
survival.. than prior to you enlightening me. For that I thank you.
Yes, I understand it often gels down to what works for a woman, which is my reason for telling Monkeybus to not discount a woman's natural subtlety
as a working tool to get her goals accomplished...by one means or another. Do not overlook this tool in a woman's tool bag. Do not be ignorant of
Are all women doing this ..no ..but it is done more often than many males are even aware. Women will catch this in another women faster than a male.
And they are not likely to educate most males in this.
I also understand that you survive by your own merits and demerits as do I. No problems with this. I suspect this has often worked to your ire when
you detect that others have used shortcuts to "default" through when you have worked hard. I have found the same. I tend to favor more individuality
that default settings.
LOL LOL Whitewave..
What kind of women (or men for that matter) are you hanging out with, OT? I don't care if a leech is male or female; if they're bleeding
me dry, they gotta go.
Agree...I don't care if a leech is a male or female..not much use for either type of high maintenance persons. There is indeed alot of Wildlife out
here...Wildlife in its natural habitat. In some manners it seems to be becoming the norm and acceptable rather than the exception. Not for me
Men are naturally stupid?
I think this is a very stupid statement to make, and i think you think too highly of yourself.
I Know many women like you, the kind that manipulate men throughout their entire lives> and end up with their own House, car, income, without getting
off their bums, and going to work.
Yeah..I know some of them too. Don't think much of them..nor do I think much of the men who allowed themselves to come in second place while RISKING
first place in labor and goods. These guys are definitely candidates for the Darwin Awards.
I think a lot of guys need formal classes in this kind of survival don't you?? I suspect they don't have a full deck.
If I totally missed the point, OT, feel free to correct any mis-statements I may have made.
No Whitewave you are not far off the point. Pretty much in the X ring here.
For many of these types of women ..it is the only survival skill they know. It is in fact survival to them. Anything else would take real
In situation X or TEOTWAWKI, I believe they would have less than Zero to offer any group. Males like this..high maintenance..same thing ..no
The fact is, unless sitx targets only men, women will suffer the hit harder than men. Our numbers will be lower, and with time, will
continue to decrease, as many of us are not trained how to survive.
My point here was and is in response to this statement. I know that historically men perish for all kinds of reasons at a much higher rate than do
women. And by this I mean far more than just the Darwin
Awards. I do not believe in the dogma and practice of "male disposability and expendability" in times of equality happening.
I do not believe that even in situation X or TEOTWAWKI that the females will perish at a faster rate than the males. This belief of many women and
social engineers is educated nonsense. It doesn't even make good nonsense.
So please if you want to attack my "public education"
Public Education, to me in this time and day, has become one of cultivating baser emotions and insecuritys...ie..fear. I often refer to public
education as being or having become a television or movie education.
IF you indeed have an education why do you post of such insecurities/fears/victimization in the post quoted above and quite contrary to what history
teaches and illustrates. Is there a greater loss of power in this world than the loss of ones life? Who do you really think is going to perish first??
This is not one upmanship..it is life and the record of history.
