Why Doesn’t The Chicken Smell?

I get most of my protein from chicken breasts. It’s tasty, easy to cook, and can be found in nearly any supermarket of the world. It’s the main ingredient in most dinner meals I cook. When I first went to South America, I noticed something weird: the chicken breast would start to smell only two or three days after I bought it. This chicken must not be fresh, I thought.

I went to Eastern Europe and the chicken would also begin to smell quickly. Even tiny chicken scraps I put in the trash would cause the entire apartment to stink if I didn’t empty it promptly. I learned to only buy small quantities that I knew I would cook in the next day or two and to empty my trash every three days, even if it wasn’t full.

When I came back to the States in late 2012, I went to the supermarket and bought a package of chicken breast. I don’t know why I did this because my mother and stepmom insisted on feeding me, saving me from having to cook. When it was time to use the chicken breast, one week after I bought it, I assumed that all was lost and the chicken would be inedible. I opened the package, expecting the smell of death, but instead there was not a single faint odor. It looked and smelled fresh.

While abroad, I would ask why the chicken would smell so quickly, but over time I gradually concluded that dead flesh should degrade rather quickly unless it was frozen. So my question changed: why doesn’t the chicken I buy in America smell? What advanced chemicals are they putting into this meat that they aren’t using abroad? When I eat foreign chicken, I know I’m eating a product that is close to natural, raised somewhat nearby, but in America I can’t say I’m exactly sure what I’m eating. The same thing happens with bread and milk. Foreign bread often develops mold within a week and foreign milk actually spoils by the sell-by date, but not in America. Food stays “good” for long periods of time.

I had already examined other questions. For example, why are the girls so thin in Eastern Europe? I was surprised to find out that girls rarely eat more than two meals a day, and I even met girls who only ate one meal a day. Two meals a day seemed to contain some element of self-deprivation, but fast forward three years and I currently eat two meals a day (in addition to a snack). The better question is why do Americans insist on eating so much? Why do they seek pleasure in food? Why do they think three meals a day is standard?

In Eastern Europe, I noticed that people are stoic and not friendly. They do not have a bubbly attitude towards strangers. They don’t say “How are you?” to everyone or give “Thanks” for the most minor of deeds. I wondered why this is, but if you look at ancient history, being friendly to strangers could come with grave repercussions. You had to be skeptical of those outside your tribe because those strangers could kill you. So my new question became why are Americans so nice to people they don’t know?

In Eastern Europe, people don’t care much about nurturing their individuality. They try to fit in and look like everyone else instead of  trying to be unique, dynamic, empowered, or whatever other buzzword is trendy this year. Why don’t they cover themselves with tattoos to better express who they are? Why don’t they color their hair green or just shave half of their head? Now I see it from a different angle. Americans are afraid of accepting the boring humanity they share with everyone else and are desperate to stand out with superficial accoutrements that reveal their insecurites and the massive confusion they have about who they are. The better question is why do Americans race to be the biggest freakshow on the block for the sole purpose of standing out aesthetically but not intellectually?

Things that Americans come to see as normal are quite abnormal in other parts of the world, ranging from how they conduct business, how they pair bond, how they entertain themselves, how they educate themselves, how they approach ambition, and how they prioritize they wants and needs. America is exceptional after all, but not in a way that I find normal, which is why any psychological or sociological study coming out of the West is complete rubbish to me. It’s examining the behavior of a very peculiar type of people who are not representative of human beings around the world. After being exposed to foreign cultures for over five years, my instinct is to see them as more “normal” from a human perspective, while seeing the American way of life to be quite perverse and strange, a culture that needs a massive dose of medicine to align itself with more traditional behavior.

I recently returned to Washington DC for one month (I actually lived in DC instead of the suburbs) and the best analogy I can give you to my experience is walking through the zoo, viewing the animals on display. I felt pity for how these animals were taken out of a traditional environment and put into something wholly artificial, that they traded their freedom and the pursuit of truth for comfort and scheduled feedings, without even realizing it. I should have felt angry at what I saw, but no one gets angry from a visit to the zoo.

Instead, my visit was surprisingly emotionless. I noticed the signs that said not to feed the animals and tried to keep a safe distance. I sympathized with the animals who I could sense knew that something is wrong with their captivity, but they have been so domesticated that they don’t know how to regain their natural instincts. Too many American animals were born in chains and think their cage is how life always was for their kind. If you take them out into the wild I don’t think they would know how to survive. For most of them it’s better they stay in the zoo, and my fear is that I will soon see long lines of free animals abroad wanting to move to zoos modeled on what we see in America.

Behavior that I once saw as normal is now definitely abnormal, based on my own reading of history and the sometimes confusing experiences I’ve had abroad that conflicted with what I was taught in my birth country. My change in perspective gives me hope for my fellow man, because perspective can be changed. It is possible to escape the zoo, to cleanse your body from the “food” they feed you, and live more closely to your human nature—as much as you can in an urban environment—but it’s safe to say that most people don’t want to leave the zoo even if given the chance. They don’t want to change their perspective and they will never arrive to the point where they stop and ask themselves why the chicken doesn’t smell.

      Is it because these problems don’t exist? or because you never go to the parts of town where troubles are rife?

    1. bucky June 30, 2014 at 9:40 am

      i’ve been to ukraine, seen the chicks. married one, like an idiot. i for one quite enjoyed roosh’s observations here.

      1. seth datta June 30, 2014 at 11:53 am

        So can we all agree that instead of hating on western women, that all women are the same? And that we have been fed a false narrative all our lives by our corporate slavemasters, as to how we’re supposed to fall in love with these home-wreckers, when our ancestors knew better than to engender such emotions.

      2. Model 800 July 5, 2014 at 10:15 am

        It is quite a startling realization when you realize the elaborate trap society at large has set out for you. And women are only its most direct link to it and not the true enforcers behind the scenes, with many of them not even realizing the full extent of it at first beyond a basic instinctive grasp of what is going on. It very much is akin to being preened and groomed and made to feel “special” (for the man) only to realize that you are suddenly been led off to the top of the Aztec sacrificial pyramid.

        Still, can be nice to have a family, as long as it is done out of your own conviction and volition and not because you feel like others are discreetly holding a pointed gun to your head. The simple truth is that those of us who have a strong independent streak flowing through them do not react well to the sensation of being turned into a caged animal by others.

      6. bucky July 4, 2014 at 1:06 am

        complicated question, but i guess it boils down to women are women. i got caught up in the mystique of the slavic woman, convinced myself that ukrainian women are vastly superior to western women, and that everything would be smooth sailing with my “traditional” non-western girl. also, i was pretty beta at the time (not that i consider myself an alpha male now, but i’ve digested enough of the red pill that i can usually fake it when needed). i was the high-value one in the relationship for the first few years while we were in ukraine, faithfully fending off legions of 8s and 9s because i loved her and didn’t want to hurt her. never occurred to me until it was too late that when i brought her to the US the hot ukrainian blond with the sexy accent would be the high value one, whereas i
        would go back to being another unremarkable schmuck and no, she didn’t return the favor on the fidelity thing. so it goes.

        looking back, i should probably have stayed in ukraine. i like it there and i speak passable russian. also i guess while we were over there, she had her parents and her whole culture around to discourage and shame overtly slutty behavior. once we got here to carrie bradshaw land, that didn’t last long.

        sometimes i think maybe if i could go back in time with what i know about game now, i might be able to keep her in line. not that it would probably be worth the effort, but i still can’t help wondering.

      7. Da Mac July 6, 2018 at 4:23 am

        I didn’t know the girl, but I wouldn’t say that was necessarily so dumb on your part. With the right girl, that should’ve worked. It’s a shame she got polluted. My condolences.

        That said, I find Eastern European girls extremely flaky and, indeed, very difficult to trust, so I find Roosh’s recommendations for them, as opposed to their traditional society, somewhat questionable.

      8. Da Mac July 6, 2018 at 4:18 am

  3. Amit Parsotam June 30, 2014 at 9:36 am

    I’ve recently been reading your blog and its enlightening to say the least, especially regarding America. I was curious to know if you’ve ever visited London, UK and how you think it compares to the states…

    1. seth datta June 30, 2014 at 11:41 am

      I was born in the 80s, and the drinking culture of the uk, the fact that people only speak one language and, the lack of care of adults towards children stand out to me as abnormal when compared to asia.

      People in the UK always say americans are thick, but I found them to be intelligent, even amongst the most intelligent (though it takes a time for it to come out). I also think there is a lot of social pathology, as holloywood is from there and the fact that the upper class has made many of the society in their image. I wasn’t too fond of the ones who loves wars against other nations – not only is it immoral and un-Christian, but they missed the point that their elites would make them next on the chopping block. This was thankfully a minority of people. though a sizable one.

      I think London is most similar to New York. London is not like most American cities and there are many smaller towns where you will find stuff and people you would never see in the UK. I do think Americans are becoming more homogenized where it is hard to tell them from Europeans (in a bad way). These cultures are becoming more like slave races IMHO, relative to other countries, where people may be paid less, but have more personal power.

      I think American and Uk adults (40s-80 year olds) of today are like children’s minds in adult bodies. Perhaps its not their fault, but their ancestors must have been different to them. Western folk have forgotten time-tested truths, like you need to invest in children to have a society. The old folk just want to spend all the dough and leave the kids with nothing. Its not wholly their fault, as the older gen have been brainwashed to not want to continue society and help their kids, plus the cognitive dissonance as to their lack of responsibility as to how their taxes have been used seeps in.

      Ultimately, because white women have embraced abortion as ‘freedom’, there are fewer white kids and more single parent families in both UK and US. This gives the state/bankers enormous power, and so we will see the US/UK/Europe become worse than Russia as any last remaining vestige of culture is destroyed on our way to becoming debt-slaves living in hell. Whilst I know they have similar difficulties, I would imagine central and south america would have a greater degree of liberty in the future as compared to the west, where you must be a cookie-cutter-corporate-made person to have a place in society. It should also be noted that western society is clearly slated to fall within the next few decades.

  4. SpecialEd June 30, 2014 at 10:12 am

    Stop whining about American individuality, its one of the highlights of the culture honestly. Lets see how well you’re able to “fit in” in EE long term with your Turkish looks lol. You’ll be whining about their collectivism a year from now because there’s no place for you.

  5. Seth Rose June 30, 2014 at 11:06 am

    At first I thought I was going to read an entire article about chicken!

    I thought you articulated the point about colored hair and tattoos well. I’ve been pondering why it seems like everyone has a tattoo these days and the argument you put forth makes a lot of sense.

    1. awakened June 30, 2014 at 8:35 pm

      Tattoos are out of control in the USA. I fucking hate tattoos on women with a passion and think it is the ultimate “try hard” for dudes.

      1. Ocean July 1, 2014 at 8:21 am

        This is true. It’s the guy with no tattoos that is the ‘counter culture rebel’ these days.

      2. GetItGoing July 2, 2014 at 4:15 pm

        Somehow tattoos on guys who don’t have a muscular frame just looks “weak.” I see thin guys out and about and at the gym as well, and definitely does not look good.

      I must admit when I first started reading this post I thought it was going to be about some girl he went down on and instead of her smelling like fish she smelt like chicken.

  7. Robert What? June 30, 2014 at 11:22 am

    I disagree with Gay – I definitely am interested in hearing your experiences in these other important subjects (and Odessa chicks, too, of course). The cause of the dreadful SAD (Standard American Diet) can be summed up by one word: Monsanto. There is a revolving door between the FDA/USDA and Monsanto (as well as other Big Agra companies). That has allowed Monsanto to use the unwitting American public as their big science experiment. They have destroyed most of the natural nutrients in most of our mass-market foods and replaced them with empty calories – and worse. However, as long as Americans can get as much food on their plate as they want, they seem to accept the situation. Even though it has caused a skyrocketing of obesity and degenerative diseases that were rare in the recent past.

    1. seth datta June 30, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Wild ass guess, the US chicken is so laden with antibiotics that nothing can grow in it. Or else it was flash frozen or irradiated to kill off what was left after processing.

  9. Sanelity June 30, 2014 at 11:41 am

    This is an excellent post, and one more Americans should read. I primarily like the aspect of viewing the world at large as “normal” and America as aberrant. Of course, that IS the way the rest of the world probably views America.

    1. seth datta June 30, 2014 at 11:56 am

    Right on again, Roosh.
    American and Canadian women (girls) are fat, mouthy, entitled, covered with tattoos/piercings, and generally look like hell. The typical North American girl look: sandals (or uggs in winter), track pants, hoodie, clutching a long key chain with millions of keychains on it, hair ponytailed at best, clutching a Tim Hortons/Starbucks in other hand, iphone stuffed in hoodie front pocket or faux-stylishly in back jeans pocket. Gross!

    The reason Eastern European people are not nice is the monarchy crushed their spirit, after the revolution communism was based on telling on your neighbor, even now with capitalism the attitude is who can I screw over. Most people only trust their immediate family and it is not a healthy atmosphere. Roosh is an American traveling making an observation, he should ask Russians who travel here how they like it it would give him perspective.

    1. seth datta June 30, 2014 at 12:00 pm

      Are americans really so friendly to each other these days? Its a dog-eat-dog culture. Surface friendliness belies hostility.

      That so-called ‘European’ hostility is already seen in the US, for can you trust your wife not to divorce you? the women not to try and screw you over at work? forcible tax re-distriubution? kids who are thugspawn? the militarized police (not present in most of Europe to the extent it is in the US)?

      I think the money made americans friendly, and now that the money and jobs are gone, it has uncovered many social pathologies that are much worse than Europe. People are only good to each other when times are good, but the wisest are the ones who keep to their family and themselves.

      1. GetItGoing July 2, 2014 at 4:12 pm

        Americans are still very friendly, and I’ve heard comments regarding such by those from other countries.

        However it greatly depends on the area and residents. Larger cities have far more people who aren’t from the same section of the country originally, and bring their cold personalities with them.

        American immigrants are mostly very friendly. I’ve rarely run into immigrants with a bad attitude, although if they do, they’re from the middle east or “who knows” where.

        Smaller towns are still friendly, although I’m from a small southern town (very small) and even I appear now to be an “outsider”, which in those particular tiny communities is uncomfortable. Otherwise, people are nice.

        Honestly, I believe a large portion of it is that the upbringing of children now induces more of a sense of entitlement and with that, a lack of manners that children from years ago were taught were important.

  12. Raul June 30, 2014 at 12:16 pm

    Roosh one thing I don’t understand is why do u portray foreign women as innocent frigid loyal women. No culture, no religion can stop women from opening there legs for unknown handsome men. Do u really think its the western culture responsible for hypergamous nature of women? Is eastern culture any good? My friend who is in Saudi Arabia has banged 40 women in Jeddah. All local. There are several malls in Jeddah where rich Saudi women roam around. He gets eye contact and even smile from them. Young population don’t wear veil. Then he stalks them till they stop and hands them his phone no. On phone these girls talk dirty. Meeting them is also no big deal. There is hardly any resistance in bedroom. All Saudi girls are fucking horny. Even local guys are getting action. And u think its the only place to find virgins? These girls have had sex as early as 12 often by family relative. Girls find ways to get penis no matter what.

    1. Johnny June 30, 2014 at 12:21 pm

      Drop us a data sheet on Jeddah.

      Where do you take them on dates? How do you isolate them to bang? What do you say to them to seduce them? How many dates until you close? Where is the nightlife? Is it fun?

      1. Raul June 30, 2014 at 1:57 pm

        mail from my friend…
        Saudi girl I was tutoring. This one was in her 20s. Highly educated. Professional. Gorgeous. Body like Kim Kardashian. From the most famous family in the country. Rich. I was tutoring her at her home to help her prepare for the TOEFL exam so she could go pursue a higher degree overseas. We ended up being a couple for over 2 years, though necessarily it was mostly in secret. Though she had been sexual with a past Saudi boyfriend she claims she lost her virginity to me. She would have her driver drop her off at my house, come up and fuck me and then go home. She would also bring me food and expensive gifts, and the whole time was paying me $300-$400 a week for TOEFL lessons. It was nice. But I was afraid to talk about it given the prestige of her family.

      2. Saudi-expert July 3, 2014 at 6:48 pm

        Bullshit! women are not allowed to be with any males in a strict Islamic country. Period.

      3. Raul June 30, 2014 at 2:01 pm

        Was walking through the mall when I saw a couple girls, one with unveiled face and one with a veil and a baby carriage. Saudi. The unveiled one was smiling very broadly at me. My friend and I went and sat down near them at the coffee place they were at. When we did this, the staff rushed out and told the women they had to leave. We got up and followed them into a store. After shadowing them for a while, the unveiled girl finally said “okay. Give me number.” I did.

        That night at 4 am she called me and started masturbating on the phone. Her English was awful. She was trying to talk dirty but didn’t even know the word for penis.”What name for man part ungh ungh ungh?” she asked me inbetween moans.

      4. ObieVan July 1, 2014 at 4:04 am

        A lie here! In Saudi Arabia there is gender segregation. The girls would most likely be in the “family” section where single unmarried dudes are not allowed. Hence – Bullcrap fantasy story. Nice try mate!

      5. Raul July 1, 2014 at 7:33 am

        Dude have u ever been to Jeddah or Riyadh? There are American apparel brands everywhere, starbucks, tgi, mcd. Local people are fucking rich. Women are hanging out at malls. All a girl needs to do is take a family member with her usually a younger brother who already knows what’s going on. Some of these girls preserve their vaginal cherry. But doesn’t mean they are anally virgin.

      6. Saudi-expert July 3, 2014 at 6:46 pm

        I can validate for you ObieVan, there is no way a single male can just casually sit with a female in a public place. They (Religious Laws that governs the country) have measures in place to monitor that sort of behavior from young people. A group called ‘The Committee For The Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice” is a moral police that watches out for the young crowd where there could be mixing of young people and not only that the public also watches out for any young couple together and with modern technology it doesnt take very long for a ‘moral police to arrive at the scene and question the couple in question. . If there are any suspicions that the couple may not be married they are asked for proof on the spot in places like restaurants, movie theater, etc. so there.

      7. Anonymous1989 July 5, 2014 at 11:02 am

        Actually Raul might be right. In Saudi Arabia, the religious police is not allowed in shopping malls, and diplomatic compounds. So I guess all sorts of “immoral” things happen in those places

    2. awakened June 30, 2014 at 8:27 pm

      I get it. You are ESL.

      STOP USING “u” instead of YOU. If you are a TOEFL tutor as you claim in another post I doubt you would use “u” instead of you.

      Your post is interesting but it is like reading a text from a american teenager.

      Ok now for your assertion about the promiscuity of the women in one of the most savage muslim societies on earth I call bullshit.

      Your claim in another post that you banged a woman in the royal family is also bullshit.

      If any of this is true you risked execution for some pussy. Not too wise.

    The fact most chicks that are hot can’t even buy a decent meal or minutes for their phone in EE or LA?

    What original or liberating ideas have came from EE (slavic back water) or LA (Catholic colonized Indian populated jungle)?

    America (Euro trash trailer park full of big box corp chain stores and Orwell robo cop nazi martial law system) is screwed up to but all the Russians and Poles iv’e met say they love it here-maybe theyr’e running immigrant bs game on me.

    Don’t you harbor some contempt for EE people because they never had the desire and ability to resist an empire and create their own freedom?

    They always got beat on by the Germans, Vikings, or Russians.

    Maybe it’s all bs- the corporation ran by the Rothschilds always ran America-the West Indian Co. was this and the Jews made $$$$ off the slave trade during US colonial era according to Louis Farrakhan.

    The reality is every Country has ran game on the peasants throughout history to keep them occupied as physical and/or economic slaves.

    The emotions and actions of people here do not correlate. It seems to stem from the inability to cope in general. The divide between emotions and actions has become increasingly larger year by year.

    I lack abroad travel experience like Roosh, but I’ve always seeked the underlying truth, which ultimately lead me to Roosh 3.5 years ago. I’ve always know that “living” in the states really isn’t as living should be. I’ve been aware of that for almost 20 years since I was in high school.

    Pre-manufactured everything everywhere. It feels like there’s never been another time in history where such a high percentage of the population tried so hard to be different and unique that they would up like that masses. Actions are all that matters, fuck your avatar life I say.

    The chicken doesn’t smell because people are not disillusioned yet with it.
    ACALT = All Chickens Are Like That. AWALT = All Women Are Like That.
    In EE, America or wherever. All women are the same. Water takes the shape of the container in which its put in. The same applies to people – blue pill and women.
    Most of the time, people don’t try to change for the sake of women. More so men who don’t try to change, as long as they can access women or are not bored with them. The only change in people comes when they’re disillusioned with women where they live.
    The EE man is disillusioned with his women fucking with Western men. The Western man is disillusioned with his women fucking expat men. Both these men will find that their chicken smells.

    Unless men become dillusioned with women, the chicken won’t smell. Once they’re dillusioned with women in their country, the chicken there smells for them. This continues in every place the men move to. Enlightenment comes finally when men realise that all chickens eventually smell everywhere.
    Adam and Eve are the first humans. Eve was crooked in behavior which she passed to her descendants. For the female hamster to not exist, Eve should not have it first. But it does.

    Being friendly and easy going in life doesn’t hurt anything. I have made several good business connections through casual conversations with strangers in my city. Having worked with many foreigners in my past job, many loved that Americans were very friendly as it made them feel more welcome being in a foreign country

    1. Ocean July 1, 2014 at 8:15 am

      I’m not friendly, and if you asked me how is my day I’d tell you to shut the fuck up and mind your own business.

      1. GetItGoing July 2, 2014 at 4:05 pm

        That’s just plain being rude.

        Social skills are important, don’t forget.

    Ever read Audrey Anberlins “Man of Velevet Man of Steel” book?

    Id like to see your writing draw from that whole genre of be a better man than you were yesterday.

    PS-You looked frazzled/depressed in Siberia on your latest YT video-I pray you’re doing better now.

    Intelligent organisms always do the most evolutionarily novel thing, not necessarily the most beneficial thing for themselves or their community/”species,” if you will.
    Binge wine drinkers are more likely to have a higher IQ. “Night owls” who regularly stay up until absurd hours in the morning are more likely to have a higher IQ. People who experiment with mind altering substances are more likely to have a higher IQ until they destroy themselves or become unintelligible like Ozzy Osbourne.
    For all of America’s cultural “failings” (as you and some others see them) blame the Flynn effect. Those regions untouched will reveal its influence soon enough. In the future, chicken will never smell.

  24. Petey July 1, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    Same as none of that fresh baked odor you used to get in bakery or donut shops. It’s all pre-frozen but cooked glomps of dough that get shoved into special ovens at the end store. It’s really not real food.

    I worked at a franchise shop that changed over from scratch baked fresh goods cooked right there in the store every (very) early morning to pre-frozen “product” that gets delivered twice a week and you just have to shove in an oven to cook.

    It wasn’t nearly the same but, you know? We didn’t really lose customers. That says a lot, too.

  25. manmade July 1, 2014 at 1:33 pm

    believe it or not, I keep the trash in the fridge, sealed. It doesn’t smell. Leaving chicken scraps for 3 days in the apartment? man you are just begging the mice and cockroaches to pay a visit

  26. manmade July 1, 2014 at 1:43 pm

    you forgot one other interesting question, Roosh: why in America there’s so many ‘authors’ like Anthony Robbins or all the other phonies who write shit on their books things like ‘you can be the master of your destiny’, ‘become a millionaire’ , when most people in Europe look at these books and laugh? (unless they are Americanized) . And why so many Americans hype these ‘authors’ out of all proportion? They even hype an idiot like Swarznegger. Ok he fooled you too, Roosh, but what the hell, I’ll forgive you almost anything. PS. if anyone wants to read an excellent autobiography by some Austrian high-achievers, read the book written by Niki Lauda, not goddamn Shwarznegger. It’s like comparing Leonardo Da Vinci to a monkey

    1. Model 800 July 5, 2014 at 10:46 am

      What? How dare you compare some Euro punk no one has ever heard of with the Terminator! Didn’t you know only in ‘murica can you run an ad captain depicting yourself as a chromed metal killbot and get elected “governator” of the grandest and most populous state of the union – holding the 8th place ranking in the world global economy – twice in a row? Try doing that in Euroland and see how far it gets ya.

      1. manmade July 9, 2014 at 5:40 am

        If you like Swharznegger so much, go and kiss his stupid ass, that’s why he went to America. In Europe he would only be laughed at. Yes yes, we in Europe are ‘uptight’ and you Americans are all so rich and generous. We all know that 🙂 Man you should run for office yourself, you even look cool in your picture

      2. manmade July 9, 2014 at 6:00 am

        PS. Marvel movies and MacDonald are my favourite cinema and food in the world. One stimulates my mind, the other fortifies my body. Ah, I wish I lived in America, the coolest and ”most populous state of the union sporting the world’s 8th largest economy twice in a row” 🙂

      3. manmade July 9, 2014 at 6:02 am

        oh, and sorry, I forgot ”grandest”. 🙂

      4. Model 800 July 10, 2014 at 11:36 am

        I was being facetious here, though it looks like you did not catch on. As much as we may all enjoy the cheap thrill of watching Aaaanooold in one of his more memorable movie roles, the fact that he got elected more on the basis of his Hollywood presence than an actual concrete political campaign with clear goals in mind does not speak too kindly of the electorate of the golden state (he did double California’s debt load and contribute directly to the fiscal decline of that state, and yet the morons still re-elected him). Good for him to have made it that far, but I am still not sure one can really consider oneself “proud” to be in his shoes.

      5. manmade July 11, 2014 at 3:50 pm

        Model 800, so I was right as I suspected you were being facetious. In this case, I fully apologize. Arnold is just an overrated lucky bod, I have no respect for people who made it far and still behave like assholes. These idiots should be grateful that they made it. I am not saying they should be samaritans, but let’s say it, Arnold is just a very average, ignorant asshole. Yeah, his muscles are impressive. So what. Bruce Lee’s physique to me was far superior. Nimble as a feather and fit as fuck. He could be an asshole too, to be sure, but nowhere as ignorant as Arnold. You say it’s good someone like Arnold makes it that far, but to me, it’s the opposite, I am sure there are people who deserves that success much more than him. I have seen them in real life and it breaks my heart to know that they probably worked harder than anybody else and their lives ended in disaster. I actually learn from people who ‘fail’ a lot more than people who ‘succeed’, as people who succeed often turn into inflated egos. The hard working person who ‘fails’ is ofter much more mature and grown up than the assholes who ‘succeed’. That’s my opinion, but if yours is different, I respect yours too, Peace 🙂

      6. Model 800 July 13, 2014 at 5:15 pm

        No need to apologize my good friend. Taking friendly stabs at each other is part and parcel here as long as it is not done in an outright moronic and useless manner. I would like to point out though that the man did in fact work hard to achieve what he did and that success most definitely did not magically fall into his lap just because he landed on the golden shores of California. Even so, that does not justify his pricky arrogance and it is quite true that he is simply too crude and vulgar to have made it anywhere important in Europe. It is in fact by leveraging the crass and baseless “culture” of America that he even succeeded in making it this far – and he is well aware of this fact – hence my reasons for disparaging the true value of his relative “success”.

        Still managed to build up a neat real estate portfolio all but guaranteeing him a nice and cozy retirement. Couldn’t have done it if he simply blew his earlier movie earnings on coke and women, that’s for sure.

    At least in NYC, a lot of that friendly stuff has to do with the corporate culture. I’ve seen people fake friendliness like their life depended on it.

    Local chicken in Latin America may soon be pushed out of existence by the US crap chicken because of incorrectly named “free trade agreements”.

  29. Mjolnir2010 July 2, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    I know it was an analogy, but I entirely agree with you about zoos. I’ve seen wild polar, grizzly, and black bears, and seeing them in captivity is stomach turning.

    Awesome post!

  31. spicynujac July 6, 2014 at 6:53 pm

    I stopped eating chicken in the USA about 5 years ago after touring a chicken farm on a job related visit. In prior days, farmers would hatch chicks from hens, buy corn from the local feed & seed, and sell chickens at market. Now, chicken manufacturing is controlled be 2 corporations who control 99% of the market. In order to do business with them, you accept baby chicks from them, the monopoly company (Tyson or I can’t remember the other) supplies some sort of edible product loaded with hormones and antibiotics and who knows because the farmer just accepts delivery of it and is required to feed it, and it grows chicks to full size in SIX WEEKS. I didn’t eat another chicken after that. However, I have had chicken in Latin America and it was delicious. I urge anyone still in the States to think twice about how often you eat meats. The goal of so much in the USA is how much money can it make, not how healthy or delicious or safe can we make it.

    This is the best and most disturbing cultural analysis I’ve ever read.
    And it’s on a game blog! Why can only a pick-up artist tackle this issue?
    What the fuck is wrong with western society..

    1. manmade July 10, 2014 at 10:10 am

      here’s why: something is wrong with your mentality. Stop indulging in your stereotype stupid shit, it’s mentally reductive, this is not a ‘game blog’ and the author isn’t a ‘pickup artist’ like the crap you see on television, we are here because of things you can’t understand, even though you might think you do. In the same way as men can’t understand the stupid shit women do, even though some of us delude ourselves in thinking that we understand it. For men, getting some smelly vagina is just part of a bigger process. Got it? Think philosophy for the horny, not pickup ‘artistry’ shit. It’s 2014, not 1983. Also, I doubt that anyone who has followed this blog for long, likes someone who bitches and moans about stupid shit like ‘what the fuck is wrong with western society’. Two reasons, first, who’s fucking society? Is it a person? An organization? No, it’s just some bullshit you made up, a way to blame someone else for the cause of your ridiculous bitching, whatever it might be about. Second, unless you are dumb, you’d understand that you yourself are part of society, western or not. What, is eastern society perfect? By the way, what did you ‘improve’ yourself with? Another pair of shoes? Fake tits? Let’s hope not. And who’s the little girl in the pic? You should not post the pic of a minor. Anyways, who cares

    Chlorine. Npr did a little story on it yesterday. “Chlorine bathing” is outlawed in Europe but we do it all the time. (And those little bags of carrots at the store, even the organic ones, are given similar treatment I was told by a grocer)

      Absolutely correct.

  35. Richard Hertz February 10, 2016 at 11:47 am

    The idea of don’t talk to strangers is an American concept. Just because you don’t know someone doesn’t mean that they are strange. I hate the term stranger. If someone looks weird or is doing something strange that to me makes them A stranger. Not if some normal person walking down the sidewalk and passes you by and says ” hi” or smiles at you tells you ” thank you if you hold open A door for them. This type of thinking is what makes women so approachable here in America. If you smile at an America woman or, just sit on A park bench next to them you are looked at as A creep. The way you talk about cultures abroad makes me think twice about everything you preach about foreign cultures being less toxic and more accepting of there fellow ma.
