    It's one of those sterotypes about canadians. It might be a regional thing, since I heard it growing up in south florida.

    Ahhhh all the old folks that grew up poor then moved to Florida when they retired,

    Makes sense.

    My mother grew up dirt poor and pinches every penny(drives me nuts), has no credit because if she can't pay cash she doesn't buy it.

    Can't finance a car but can pay cash for a Porsche and drive away lol

    My uncle was a millionaire and cheap as fuck, took us out to dinner at McDonalds once.

    I told my ol' lady over and over and over again, don't let my son play with his toys in the living room. Make him keep them in the bedroom where they belong.

    She called me a few minutes ago to tell me that he just took his train and threw it at the tv and now the lcd is scrambled. That tv was almost 2 grand and now it's worthless. I'm so fucking pissed.

    You know..

    We have many a disagreement on the Spot. Of course there's debate over the sport, favorite fighters, and various controveries. There are also debates and arguments and even the occasional personal attack over politics, religion, and more importantly, entertainment media. But in all my time on the site I haven't seen anything approach the level of forethought, cruelty, and outright malice like that which exists when two or more women just don't get along.

    Now I know what you're thinking, "oh Ninja is clearly exaggerating just so he can stereotype an entire 'class' of people along the most basic of grouping" and ordinarily you'd be correct. See many of you here have come to understand that many of comments are attempts to put a sarcastic or cynical angle on a subject to subvert reader expectations. Some of my posts are more successful than others but I retain some measure of consistency for many of you to see past the shtick and drill down to the subtext which is usually "waaah I don't like it!". This approach leads me to often assume stances contrary to popular opinion just to illustrate a point.

    But I'm really not doing that here. All humor aside I am constantly perplexed at how vindictive women are towards one another. That's not hyperbole either, that is my genuine estimation of their social constructs. Where no narrative for betrayal or wrong doing exists, it seems to be invented. Now it is entirely possible that I lack the ability to perceive these transgressions, either in their execution or their symbolism. But from my direct observations it seems as though women need, not want, need to dislike other women.

    And I do not believe the same need exist for men.

    This isn't commentary on sex or gender inequality. And I'm not casting aspersions on any group of people. I am hypothesizing whether women are programmed (as we all are programmed by our biology) to 'invent' what I can only call disgust towards other women based solely on preception.

    A man's logic is direct. A woman's logic is abstract. That's just my opinion, not law, but based on that opinion I think women are biologically predisposed to see problems where they don't exist to exercise a deep emotional catharsis. But why the target is so often their brethren escapes me.

    This will require additional observation. I will need a van.

    Publix deli is life. But I love their meat / produce / bakery too. There’s none near me here for the next few weeks

    A very weird phenomenon has been happening more and more lately.
    At first I thought it was because my eye sight is getting worse. Turns out my eye sight is deteriorating but that is not the cause of this peculiar situation.
    Perhaps the cause is poor lighting at my vanity but nope.
    Then it happened today at the gym.
    I was doing curls in front of the mirror, watching my form. Which is quite poor.

    And there it was right in front of me in the mirror, my father.

    I finally figured it out. the mirrors are distorted and reflecting back a much older person than who is standing in front of it.

    Is it just the mirrors where I look?

    I think it's some kind of weird practical joke being played out at scale. This morning, my mirror just showed some poor ugly sap. I just have to find out what I look like by touch; I'm gorgeous.

    In my mind my cock gains two inches of reach when I see it in the mirror.

    Been raining here for a few days. Been nice cause we needed it. My son was suppose to have an 8am soccer game with 7am pictures. They said in an email that they wouldn’t tell us till 6am this morning. We got up and into the car and then they text. Fuckers. At least now I got a morning workout in.
