“Nice Guys” love to complain about the fact that girls never like them. “Blah blah blah, woe is me, I treat her flawlessly, but she still likes that asshole.” We’re inclined to feel bad for them. They really are so sweet, and they say the right things, and they are always there for us. They are the ones who help us carry things, shovel our cars out of the snow, and bring us soup when we are sick. They plan out the perfect dates, they buy us the best and most thoughtful gifts, and they aren’t afraid to tell us how they really feel. They seem to do everything right…but we still don’t want them. It seems stupid. Is something wrong with us? No, absolutely not. There is a reason, and I hope, after having put it in these terms for them, nice guys will finally understand the error of their ways.
n. the inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends who you really like—as if all your social tastebuds suddenly went numb, leaving you unable to distinguish cheap politeness from the taste of genuine affection, unable to recognize its rich and ambiguous flavors, its long and delicate maturation, or the simple fact that each tasting is double-blind.
If you missed last night Strikeforce event, you missed two stomach churning arm bars that Ronda Rousey applied to former bantamweight champion Meisha Tate’s poor poor arm. Rousey puts Tate in the first armbar and looks like she dislocates her arm but somehow Tate gets free. Later in the round Rousey secures another armbar which totally destroys whatever arm she had left. Props to Meisha Tate for toughing it through on both occasions. Any normal human being with any respect for fully functioning limbs would have tapped out with relative ease. I’m pretty sure this video will be taken down at any moment, so I also posted the gifs below as a backup.
