Daughter of Dictator Wins South Korea Presidency

Park Geun-hye waved to supporters after she was declared the winner of the presidential election on Wednesday in Seoul.

SEOUL, South Korea — Park Geun-hye, the daughter of South Korea’s longest-ruling dictator, was elected president on Wednesday, the first woman to win the post.

Voters appeared to prefer stability and “motherly” leadership over her opponent’s calls for radical change in how the country addresses economic inequality and military threats from North Korea.

5 Things Every man needs to know about women (Globally)

DISCLAIMER: This list primarily applies to American and other western women. Women from cultures that have embraced community and tradition, such as South America and Eastern Europe, do not typically show these negative traits.

1) Women will never love you like you want them to, or like you love them. This is the hardest thing for men to accept: women will never love you for you – they merely love you for what you can do for them – the kids, the house, the cars, the paychecks, the security, the social status – the moment you are no longer useful, they discard you. This is not love, it’s self-gratification.

2) Women have no respect for contracts, agreements, commitments, or any other binding conditions. The fact that they file over 70% of all divorces, often less than 2 years after swearing to honor and obey til death, should be proof enough of this obvious flaw in women’s character.

3) Women secretly do not want to work. Even the hard charging college and career gals are only doing it so they will be in proximity to higher status males, from which to choose mates. There is ample documentation on the fact that women typically rack up huge amounts of college debt to gratify their ego with a degree and screw dozens of guys at school. Then they stop working just a few years into their career – the moment they snare their high-earning male. Woe to the man who assumes that if he marries a career girl, she’ll be a financial contributor long term.

4) Women secretly hate men. It’s the penis envy and the feminism. It drives this low-level competitive loathing for men. They really are jealous of the fact that men have accomplished everything worth doing in the history of MANkind, except giving birth to children. They have been brainwashed to think their inferiority is due to an oppressive patriarchy, and they despise men because of it. Even though, fifty years after women’s empowerment, they are still not becoming engineers and scientists in big numbers, women cannot connect obvious patterns.

5) Women play for “team woman”, while men play for no team. Any slight against a woman is a slight against “the sisterhood” and they will rise up to shame, censor, and ban you. Women feel far more solidarity to each other than men do. Often, men known as white knights and manginas, play for team women as well, in the mistaken belief that it will get them laid. Because of this, the vast majority of western society has set itself squarely against the rights of white men.

This is from a guy who has been around, seen it all with eyes wide open, observed hundreds of other cases. Ignore at your own peril.

If you want a quality wife and mother for your children, better start boning up on your Spanish, Thai, or Russian.

Korean girl seeks fake apartment to fool protective parents

A female Korean student living in New York is looking for a fake roommate and an apartment to hide her engagement with a Caucasian man from overly protective parents.

The unnamed student, who posted the request last week on social media network Reddit, said her “loving and protective” mother in Korea is sending her brother to the Big Apple to check up on her.

For the girl, the visit will reveal the fact that she is engaged to a white man. Her family has been told she is living with a female roommate.

She is now offering $100 to anyone who can lend her an apartment which she can pretend is hers, and extra cash for any female who will pose as her roommate.

Some women actually have men on the brain

October 1, 2012 by admin · Comments Off
Filed under: Science, Women & Men 

For decades after a woman has carried a male child in her womb or shared her mother’s womb with a brother, she carries a faint but unmistakable echo of that intimate bond: male fetal DNA that lodges itself in the far recesses of her brain.

That astonishing finding, published Wednesday in the journal Public Library of Science One (PLoS One), suggests that the act of having a child is no mere one-way transmission of genetic material and all that goes with it: There is an exchange of DNA that passes into the part of us that makes us who we are. That, in turn, may alter a woman’s health prospects in ways her own DNA never intended.

Guys
Why aren’t you busy posting ridiculously dirty ads on here that no women ever read?

Gals
Why are you posting ridiculously picky ads that no man will ever measure up to?

Gays
Why are you even bothering to post on here? Itaewon’s no secret, go get laid!

Oh and while I’m posting…
Looking for a girl who will let me go all c0cksmith on her out of the blue and leave right afterwards never to be seen again.

Or

A guy who is nice, smart, funny, real, thoughtfull, rich, handsome, independant, serious, unmarried, and ddf. Looking for LTR but at first just friends for a few months.

Or

A vers top/bttm to meet me in an alley and be my j/o buddy. Don’t look me in the face while we’re together. Opposite sex need not apply.

And remember for all of the above: No pic no reply!
