Macho level up

It seems that there is a desire to get some testosterone flowing here. There have been some changes to the side bars reflecting manlier images, but we need to kick this off right with a story by men, about men, and for men.

So you ladies know, guys find hurting each other to be funny on so many levels. That is why we love sports that involve physical pain like boxing, wrestling, UFC, American football, and Hockey. That said please enjoy this article that was sent to me from the Darwin Awards.
2008 Darwin Award Runner Up: CLOTHESLINED!
Confirmed.

January 2008, Florida | Wearing only swim trunks and sneakers,
a 37-year-old man raced his motorcycle toward the Manasota Key
drawbridge. As the bridge began to open, it was clear that he
intended to "shoot the gap." Bridge designers had anticipated
such lunacy and invented the crossing guard. The closing gates
swept him off his Suzuki, over the side of the bridge, into
the water, and out of the gene pool. By a twist of fate the
motorcycle continued up the ramp and made it across to the
other side.

If you are unfamiliar with the Darwin Awards they are presented to individuals that died doing stupid things and thus removed themselves, thankfully, from the gene pool. Most of the winners are men for obvious reasons that women wouldn't do most of these things.

This particular winner is a great example of that which appeals to men. You have a motorcycle, a guy getting hurt, and the word clotheslined which is an awesome way to take your friends down.

Ladies if you don't get why guys like this sort of thing don't feel to bad. We don't get why women go to the bathroom in groups. I'm guessing it is some kind of survival instinct needing someone to watch your back while otherwise occupied. Guys will just turn and pee on whatever is attacking so we don't need to backup.

We go to the bathroom in groups because if we don't, 31.7% of the time we walk out with tp stuck to our shoe, our skirt hem in the waistband of undergarments, or lipstick on our teeth. We take care of each other. That is our aim. So in honor of you, Nick, my next post will be dedicated to your aim.

And there is plenty of testosterone here, thankyouverymuch.

I like to watch wrestling. I don't think I would like to watch videos of darwinaward winners qualifying for their prize.....

Nick, I somewhat get the whole macho -fighting- hurting each other thing after raising 3 sons, but what I don't get is why someone decided that it is Okay for men to pee with no privacy! Who's decision was that?

I would demand a recount on that vote. That just ain't right. I'm sorry.

And Candace, you articulated the potty 3some perfectly for us ladies. Nuff said.
