I Got Nuthin Open Thread

My Grandson Thomas & Me

My Grandson & Me


I spent several hours looking for something to talk about and couldn’t find shit. Sorry.

I thought about writing something about the guy in Ohio that cheated the hangman but that’s a dead subject. I missed Barack’s birthday party again this year. Last night on Twitter Ace led an awesome riff on Amanda Marcotte’s silly ideas about men. A-rod gets suspended today. Simon Cowell knocked up his best-friend’s wife.

See what I mean? Nothing.

Hopefully I’ll have something later.

    May as well start off with a good laugh…

    Regarding the riff over Amanda’s silly ideas about men, sometimes i am acutely aware of how difficult it must be for men to remember that women were actually designed for their pleasure. Not just for endless entertainment and the thrill of always being perched on the edge of disaster, but for companionship, sex, children. To make things crazier, we seem to spend all our time invested in trying to prevent you from collecting those rewards.

    • Klown says:

      Uh, no.

      Not even close.

      • yttik says:

        Uh sorry, Klown, but I do believe I finally speak the truth now, at least about relationships between men and women. There may be men who are so delighted with women’s charms, that they over look our faults, but that doesn’t mean our faults aren’t there.

        I told you I had fell down yet another rabbit hole. I’ve now come full circle. Men are no longer the lying, perverted, rotten people I thought they were and women are no longer perfect beings above reproach.

    Great roundup for the weekend news πŸ˜€

    I suppose if you believe in “intelligent design” that might be true, but if you believe in evolution and natural selection not so much. Evolution would favor sexual vs asexual reproduction because of the opportunities it provides for diversification. But which sex came first is a chicken or the egg kind of question. While I hope his relationship with me has brought Elliesdad pleasure on many levels, I wasn’t “designed” to make his life more pleasurable. We evolved biologically this way because it’s what enabled us to produce offspring. Our societal gender roles also have evolved over time largely to better protect our offspring until their maturity. An example -Expectations of female fidelity are probably rooted in males wanting to insure the offspring they invest in raising are carrying their genetic material. Jerry Springer helps guys with that on a regular basis. What we’re experiencing now is likely the result of evolutionary changes in the requirements needed to successfully bring a baby to maturity. While Amanda Marcotte is a first degree jackass, male discomfort is no reason for women to resist evolutionary change if it benefits them and their children.

      Should have posted to yttik

      • yttik says:

        “Male discomfort is no reason for women to resist evolutionary change if it benefits them and their children…”

        And yet, in ways we are only just beginning to understand, “male discomfort” is not bringing about beneficial conditions for women and children.

        We have “discomforted” men right out of the social structure in the black community with rather tragic results. It’s sounds a bit crazy, but it turns out men serve a purpose in the universe after all. My bad for ever believing otherwise.

          Men have a purpose but my purpose is not to serve them

        • DandyTIger says:

          It’s a cookbook!. Run!!!!

        • yttik says:

          It gets a bit more complicated in the context of marriage, lisadawn. Serving my husband actually pays off with big dividends for me personally. Not serving him, not so great. Since the benefits of serving him are so much better than the drawbacks of not, why have I always been so resistant to the idea of “serving men?” Heck if I know.

          This morning I got up at 4 AM and reluctantly made him coffee. When he left, he gave me his credit card. There’s a word for a woman like me πŸ™‚

        • elliesmom says:

          If access to your husband’s credit card is what you think is necessary for survival for you and your kids, then you’re absolutely right. Some of us believe a seat at the table where decisions are being made that directly influence the world our kids live in is important, too. The decisions that have driven black males out of their families haven’t, for the most part, been made by women. While the increase in numbers of upper and upper middle class unmarried women giving birth might be the result of “feminism”, the number of poor women raising their babies alone is not. Those decisions, the social welfare rules, the high unemployment rate, and even the decisions about access to abortion which lessens the societal obligations for men to stay and raise their offspring have been made by men.

        • DeniseVB says:

          LOL yttk, I’ve been married to my “sugar daddy” for 44 years. Not a bad gig. πŸ˜‰

        • Constance says:

          It isn’t women’s fault that men are no longer necessities in the social structure. It is Men’s responsibility to step up and find a relevant place in the world. I used to hear men saying things like “she only likes me for the money I provide” Well, many guys weren’t good for anything but money so what else were women supposed to like them for? I remember after divorcing my first husband everyone was very worried and sympathetic towards me, but I felt great, like I’d had a life sucking tumor removed. I had half the housework, twice as much money to spend, and no aggravation in my home. And since my first husband wasn’t good company I had nothing to miss. In fact since men are easy there wasn’t even a lack of sex. My life improved greatly with divorce.

        • Constance says:

          On the other hand my son would have taken over the household at age 13 if his father wasn’t around to prevent it. It took masculine inflexible will and the threat of physical domination to keep my son on the straight and narrow (or sort of close to it) and he was larger than I am by the time he was 13. Father and son never came to blows but it was close.

        • gxm17 says:

          I’m with lisadawn82. What the hell did Marcotte say that got everyone’s knickers in a twist?

          yttik, whatever floats your boat. My husband is the one who makes me coffee (he makes the best chocolate and cinnamon joe evah) and cooks. I’m the one who holds the purse strings. We each do the “job” that suits us best. But, truth be told, I wouldn’t have anything to do with a man who couldn’t make his own coffee. Crickey, even I can make my own coffee and I’m a disaster in the kitchen.

    conflicted about this. do not like threats to free speech. but fully understand the reasoning due to the fact the we no longer have channels that are not b part of the backtrack bunch. and hinder more than help the election process

    • Constance says:

      I look at it as NBC and CNN trying to ease their quilt for what they did in 2008 against Hillary. These shows they are producing would be a problem except for the fact that NBC and CNN don’t have viewers so they don’t have much power to influence pro Hillary voter behavior.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Could it be worse than “Game Change” ? <—which I never watched, but when news and entertainment organizationss dip into the political pool, it's a chance they have to take pissing off half their viewers.

        Oprah's The Butler cast Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan. Ok, there was outrage from the VN era veterans, then it calmed down. THEN Miss Jane decided to wear her Hanoi Jane t-shirt while she helped promote the film. Dumb? You bet.

    College is certainly not what it once was. I was fortunate to have attended two great universities back in the days, Ohio University (BA in English/Creative Writing) in Athens, Ohio and Indiana University MPA in Public Policy/Urban and Regional Planning) in Bloomington. I’ve used both degrees extensively over the years and learned a lot in both places. My youngest son went to little Adams State in southern CO and got a degree in Physical Education which he is currently teaching in Santa Fe. I feel lucky. Pretty sure I would not want to attend a university these days….not sure I would survive!

    I found something new at the store yesterday. Pretzel Rolls. since the fast food places have started using them, I wondered if you could get them in a store. found pretzel hoagie rolls at Winco yesterday.

  17. Man, ain’t that the truth. The media is reporting nothing of consequence, even though there’s plenty of consequence to go around. See Selena Zito’s piece on dying veterans and the bureaucrats who are killing them.
