Welcome to 2013

Shantaram: A Novel is next up on the reading list. Here are your new tax rates, U.S. citizens. If I'm a billionaire, I'm hanging out with something better than this, ya know? Hell, I was doing better as a negative-hundredthousandaire. After 8 years with Levono, I got my first Macbook, which was cheaper on Amazon than the Apple Store. My computer is a tax deduction. … [Read more...]

A lot of men are getting … [Read more...]

College is a Scam!

I joined the Army Reserves when I was 17. This meant my college was paid for. I attended monthly military training exercises (called "Drill") and spent two weeks away for Annual Training. In my home state, joining the military meant free public school tuition. My Drill pay was around $150. My GI Bill pay was $300 or so. I always worked 20 or so hours a week at another … [Read more...]

Robert Green on Self-Reliance

48 Laws of Power

Robert Green's latest book is Mastery. Here Robert Green talks about his decision to write 48 Laws of Power. Green was broke, working shit jobs in Hollywood when he decided to make his Big Move.

The 2013 Manosphere Chin-Up Challenge

I just installed one of these in the doorway leading to my bathroom. I'm going to do a set  of chin-ups before going to the bathroom. I'm not going to train to failure. I'm going to do Pavel's ladders. (If don't know who Pavel is, here's an article and here's his book.) Anyhow, I thought it'd be fun to have a 2013 chin-up challenge. I'm not sure what the rules would … [Read more...]

Wisdom from 50 Cent

50th Law

"You know what my grandfather told me? You'll be as successful as the mother fuckers you talk to for no reason. If you spending your day talking to a nigga who ain't got nothing going on, what the fuck kind of information can he offer you?" "Man isn't as attractive as an attractive woman until he is successful and publicly noted. Women in this room turn down men as much as I … [Read more...]

The Strangest Secret by Earl Nightingale

The Strangest Secret

American men today long for the golden age of the 1950s. "If only I hadn't been born today," men exclaim, "I would have made something out of my life!" Wrong. The Strangest Secret was written in 1956. It's message is timeless. Some years ago, the late Nobel prize-winning Dr. Albert Schweitzer was asked by a reporter, "Doctor, what's wrong with men today?" The great doctor … [Read more...]

Your Environment is Everything

It sounds abstract at best and cheesy at worst to say, "You are the average of your 5 closest friends." Or, "If you hang around 9 broke people, prepare to be the tenth." If you want to appreciate that wisdom in concrete terms, do what I just did. Go to a public library without any smart phones or note pads or computers. Resolve to stay there for 2 hours. Eat your carbs or … [Read more...]
