What's stopping you from doing this with your partner pic.twitter.com/9hDw31Jutp

That neither one of us is a huge fucking dumbass?
I don’t like rating people on the 1-10 scale of attractiveness as I think it’s pretty dehumanizing, but to use that framework for a moment losing weight (if you are a woman) is the one way you can jump three points (say from a 6 to 9) with one relatively simple (though not necessarily easy) action.
For a man, losing weight to get in the normal weight range only nets you about 1.5-2 points — but that’s still a lot. It’d take plastic surgery to do that otherwise. If you lose weight and get relatively buff, then you can jump three-ish points as a man.
Want a real life hack, there you go.
About the below, sometimes I literally find a college class’s syllabus and then just read everything on it. Here’s a good start for what Angie is talking about.
Why spend $4,000 when you can just do that? I can’t understand.
I never took a women or gender studies class (really) in college. And that was considered "not serious" by a lot of folks, at least for resume purposes etc. But I think it would be a lot easier to understand the world right now if I had.

The same books, articles and essays they’d teach in those classes are available to read any old time, many of them for free.
Want to learn something, there’s nothing stopping you now except the will to do so.
I know I’ve observed this before, but I really do wonder how much of the “it’s impossible to ever lose weight” belief is itself responsible for people being unable to lose weight. If instead we had a culture of, “Here’s how you lose weight, it’s not that hard, etc.” I bet many, many more people would be successful.
Of course, other cultural-level changes would be needed and nothing happens in a vacuum, so there’s that.
Modernity knocks the fun out of life.
It optimizes the knowing for the not knowing.
And the reality is the 'not knowing' is where the fun is at.
The texture of life.
Modernity optimizes the wrong thing and removes the right thing.
Does it backwards.

This is a macro view of what I’m on about when I discuss the poverty and barrenness of algorithmic dating and algorithmic everything. For some reason, indiscernible to me, people (mostly liberals) believe if they have “all the data,” then the decision wil be obvious and correct.
But the decision isn’t in the data and has little to do with it! The data captures only a very small fraction of the real factors present and those are mostly non-quantifiable — even in principle. So it’s all a waste of time and an illusion, but it’s one that way, way too many people are completely convinced of.
I’m not a “free thinker.” Whatever that is.
I’m a very restricted thinker. I try to restrict myself to thinking the correct things.
Yep, them are MiGs. That’s hilarious.
