I am going to ask the obvious, but I suspect many readers are wondering about it. Where are the notches/flags stats?????

Roosh – you left out one important stat though, how many times did you get laid?

Good lord, I am going to sound like such a mom/harpy woman here, but have you been to a doctor for your stomach? That shit ain’t right. If nothing else, such, er, distress screws with your game.

We all know you don’t share that many really personal details but give us a flag count from the trip at least. We deserve it.

What specifically were the drug/vaccine injections for?

First, why not bring or buy an extra pair of pants? I mean, really, whats the harm? Second, you didn’t get laid did you? That fucking sucks, but at least man-up to it.

And Roosh, remember, Lorena Bobbitt was from Venezuela. You’re lucky your dick isn’t still in South America, without you attached.

Methinks too the boy definitely did not get laid! Can’t ask you in person due to long distance. You are the one who regards himself as the self-proclaimed “Expert” in picking up chicks. Can’t imagine why you are so insulted in not offering up that tally….why we have been subjected to various intimate details of your poo…feels like we all know you intimately already!

Suddenly the boy is shy? Awww…give me a break!

I don’t mean to disrespect the “Expert” here, but do you think having a shortage of clean clothes might have had something to do with it?
