What everyone else browses for on the internet: Cat pictures and people getting hit in the nads.

I've been looking all over the place for the best price on a Ruger 10-22 target rifle. So that's shopping, but it's pretty manly. I think.

Well, Rush Limbaugh did just say our penises are getting smaller because women are subjugating us.

This is a sad sign of how men in our culture have been turned into sissies. And really, the only ones we have to blame are ourselves, for letting women influence our every action. Being a man used to mean something. I think that when we allowed women to start taking away things that were specifically designed for men, like driving and joining the military, we were essentially giving away our dignity along with those things. Let's look at driving for a minute. When cars first became available, women were afraid of them, as they should be. They were just far too powerful for a petite person to handle. Women were barely able to even control the horses that served as transportation before the car came on the scene, and horses were living things. Now they were expected to try and control a mechanism that they knew nothing about? Better to just let their husbands handle it, like pretty much anything else that didn't involve cooking or childbearing. Fast forward to 200 years later. These days, they are driving everywhere. Car companies even design cars like the Prius to be marketed to women and weak men. There are many things wrong with scenario, not the least being that 87% of all car accidents in the United States are caused by women drivers that are not familiar with operating their cars that their husbands had to work 3 jobs just to buy for her. They think that a car is just a vanity on wheels that they can just roll around and put on their makeup and paint their finger nails. I think that if we were to go back and take away some of these so called "freedoms", I think that women would stay in the home more and spend less time costing insurance companies and their husbands money. That's just my take.

I have tabs for Slickdeals, NewEgg and Amazon open right now. I haven't bought any electronics locally in the past 4 years. To think of it, about all I buy locally is food, clothes, household supplies and cars.

If you're secure in your manhood, you could get this rifle. Regular version is $35 less.

Does it count if I'm shopping for a whore on backpage.com?

That's some good trollin'! I'd give it 8/10, but my wife didn't like it so we 'll go with her score of 2/10.

Try finding parts for a1977 Kubota tractor locally... My google-fu has been strong in finding parts. Also, who wouldn't shop at amazon, prime membership, no sales tax. I do give local companies a chance to price match, but they seldom will.

Actually this article is pretty accurate. I shop a ton on Amazon and whatnot. Or I look at something in a store and turn the knobs, then go home and do research/reviews and buy it online.

What a bunch of Dilberts.

I can believe it. Men may hate shopping for clothes but they'll spend days browsing through gadgets and electronic crap.

Close, but... Nope! Long before that, there was Avenue Q, which did for Broadway what Greg the Bunny did for television when it came to answering the question of what life was like for the puppet stars of childrens' shows while off-camera. (Both are worth further research.)
