From all the back and forth that we – black men and women – do, it would appear that can be said for both sides. One rule I think all people should follow is "Don't ask of others what you are not willing or able to do yourself in return". I always find it funny see a fat, bald, bad dressing brother who has his mind set on dating a super model. We can get a beer belly and look like a dressed up Easter egg but let woman put a little baby weight and men are ready to trade them in. And then you...

I am a weak atheist and an agnostic (no, they're no mutually exclusive), but I practice taoist philosophy. I don't believe there is an onjective meaning to life, but that doesn't mean life itself is meaningless. Rather, it opens the possibility of the individual creating their own purpose, if they so chose. With the knowledge that all we have is the here and now (although religious taoists may believe in reincarnation), the toaist focuses on experiencing the beauty and goodness of the world,...

Re: What Are Women Really Attracted To?

It's really difficult to determine what women are attracted to. True story: I was on the bus. This fine-looking Puerto-Rican girl came on; she had these large, seductive, blue eyes; voluptuous - full luscious tits, big round hips and an ass to match. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. So,as she walks down the aisle, we make eye-contact. I smiled at her. And she? She rolled eyes-clearly annoyed, as if to say: "nigga PUH-LEEEEAAASE...don't even think about!!" Now, I admit, I'm never gonna make the cover of...

I'm a Taoist as well. Some wise man whose name I can't recall said "It's the how of living that matters, not the how long." That being said, my own death doesn't scare me. What scares me is losing one of my loved ones before I'm ready to lose them. I don't think we miss the world when we die, but there is a good chance that the world misses us. As far as my passing, I could care less when I die, so long as I die well. Another wise man whose name I can't remember said "There are only two ways...
