The Man:

"Yes Dear" = "I know where this is going.  There is literally nothing I can say or do to win.  If I counter your emotional bullshiat with logic, you'll say I'm talking down to you.  If I lose my temper, you'll say I'm bullying you.  If I don't do anything, you'll say I'm emotionally crippled.  So I'm just going to say and do the absolute bare minimum in the hopes that you'll stomp off for a few hours so I can have some peace.  When you've decided I've been punished enough, you'll 'forgive' me for whatever it is I did and I'll pretend like you're right and then we'll start the entire thing over again in three days when I make an off-hand comment suggesting I'm not looking forward to your mother's visit or when I get a slight boner when you complain about your hot sister wasting $5000 on a boob job.  I mean, let's be honest.  We both know I saw her in her underwear last year when I accidentally walked in on her changing clothes in our bedroom and we both know that she engineered that little fiasco in order to piss you off because she loves to push your buttons.  Besides, what the fark do you care what she does with her money?  What else is she going to do with it?  She's a farking 'social media strategist'.  What the hell does that even mean?  Oh right, it means 'OMG I'm 35 years old and unemployed because the powers that be think I'm a technological dinosaur!  Can I move in with you?'  And of course you'll say yes and you'll be glaring at me the whole time, but I can promise you I won't want to fark that at 35.  I've seen pictures of your mother at 22 and 35 and I can see where this is going.  Social media strategist my ass.  I worked at a god damn dotcom.  I helped invent the streaming video algorithm that YouTube uses, and yet now I have to listen to some punk ass 21 year old tell me that I don't understand technology?  Let's see what Johnny McShiatsALot can do the next time the servers go down and I decide to call in sick.  Have fun in the cloud asshole.  Little farker thinks it's an actual cloud.  I showed him the server room and he didn't believe me when I told him the cloud was just a bunch of computers networked together.  The only reason he has that job is because he was sucking the boss's dick on the 18th hole.  Maybe I should learn to play golf.  It's just geometry.  It would get me out of the house once in a while.  Oh Christ, are you still talking?  Seriously, I don't care.  Did you ever take a logic course in college?  No, of course you didn't, you were a communications major.  I don't even know what the fark a communications major is.  All I ever saw you do in college was slam wine coolers and flash your boobs at drunken frat boys.  And now you yell at our daughter for wearing yoga pants.  Yeah, I wonder what she would think of that picture I took of you on Spring Break wearing nothing but sandals and nipple clamps?  You would probably claim it was all my fault, and the kid would believe you because she's practically a clone of you.  I wish her friend Denise would start wearing underwear though.  I mean, I'm 40, I'm not dead and those yoga pants are practically invisible when she bend over.  But of course, if I say anything, suddenly I'm on the sex offenders registry.  Oh god, I hate my life.  I can't even enjoy football because my team sucks and you always wait until the game to demand that I mow the lawn.  One day, that's all I ask, one day where I can just enjoy myself, but no.  What the fark did I just say?  'Yes Dear'.  That means 'shut the fark up, you win."  Why the fark can't you just accept victory?  Do you have to break me down completely?  That's what this is, isn't it?  You're getting old and menopausy and you know I think your sister's hotter than you and you know she would probably fark me if I let her just because she wants to piss you off.  Well you know what, maybe I will.  Let's see what $5000 gets you these days.  Yeah, I can just imagine your face when you walk in on us and oh who the fark am I kidding?  I haven't seen my dick in three years and those low T pills aren't doing fark.  Is this it?  Is this all I have to look forward to?  What happened to all of my dreams?  I was going to be rich and famous like Steve Jobs.  I was going to revolutionize internet commerce.  I don't care what they say, Pets.com was a great idea, it was just before its time.  Maybe I should write a novel.  Does anyone even read novels anymore?  I don't think my kid's boyfriend can even read at all.  Fark it, I am writing a novel.  I'll self-publish on Amazon.  I think I still know some guys over there, maybe they can give me some inside help.  Yeah, that's what I'm going to do.  And before I publish, I'm going to divorce your ass so you don't get any of my money.  Then I'm going to hire a personal trainer and when I get back into shape, I'm going to fark the hell out of your sister.  And I'll buy her even bigger boobs just so you'll have something to biatch about.  So there."

HotWingAgenda: FunkOut: A lot of people read other people's emotions wrong because they project their own ideas onto that person. They assume the other person is going to have emotions much like theirs. Kind of a crapshoot to be doing that. "I think you're angry because you're sitting there like that and doing this and I think you're angry because of this certain thing." And you're like "First, I'm not angry and second, I have no idea what you're talking about. I was thinking I am almost out of raspberry jam."

If I had a dollar for every time a friend thought I was doing rocket science in my head because of my facial expression.. when I was actually trying to decide whether to wake up early the next day to grab some donuts...


Heh. "You seem very serious. Is...something wrong? You can tell me."

"Yeah...what was the name of that black guy that was Matlock's sidekick? It's driving me crazy and I don't want to give in to Google."

czei: Women will spend a huge amount of money and mental effort thinking about hairstyles.  They will agonize of a small change in the shade of a highlight, and the magnitude of this change in their mind is huge, but in reality doesn't make a darn bit of difference.   The chances of a man noticing such a change is very small, and quite unreasonable.


Women: I made this life changing decision and he didnt even notice.
Men: Wait, what? No sex again? WTF?!

I use "humble submission" to get what I want.

Me: "hooooneey can you get me my nail polish from the top shelf? I can't reach."

Him: "I'm busy playing God of War. Get the stool and get it yourself".

Me: "Pllleaasse????" *humble submission*

Him: "Okay fine. I'll get it".

Works like a charm. I figured it out when I was about 20 - I can get pretty much anything from any guy so long as I give him that look. It's super powerful.

Fast Moon:

The article didn't say anything about how women reacted in the same controlled conditions.  All it said was that men's brains become more apathetic when faced with a female emotional response as opposed to a male one, rendering it harder to judge.  The conclusion wasn't that women are harder to read, but that men just don't care enough to interpret them.

I think you're being unfair. Men aren't necessarily more "apathetic" with the female eyes. They took longer and were wrong more often, yes. Honestly it's probably because with the male eyes they could focus 100% on the question and answer easily, but with the female eyes they were distracted trying to discern what the rest of the face and also body looked like so they could decide whether they would fark her or not.

'Men have trouble reading emotion from the eyes of women.'

I thing this is true  When they roll their eyes in the back of their head, they might be feeling pretty good, or they might be feel not much at all because I put too much ether in the handkerchief.  It is hard to tell and in neither case are they speaking clearly.

HotWingAgenda: dickfreckle: It's why you'll often hear straight men bemoaning not having been born gay so as to have avoided a lifetime of cryptic comments or passive-aggressive notes left on the fridge.

Speaking as a straight man who has had his share of gay friends... gay guys make cryptic comments to their boyfriends all the time.  And it bugs the hell out of them.


Yeah, but I bet they will still blow each other.

From left to right, top to bottom:

Smells a fart, concentrating on work/athletic endeavor, confused and bewildered
knows something you don't know which she thinks is funny, courtesy smile, thinking about sex
sad puppy face, dropping a deuce, about to jam a foot up someone's ass
"oh shiat I just made a mistake" face, pissed off but not willing to negotiate, blank expression

Steak_Cake_Sause: or the dreaded "can we talk" question,


All too often "can we talk" just means, "I'm going to biatch at you."  "Talk" implies a discussion.  Really what she meant was, "I'm going to lecture you."

When my ex and I went a a marriage counselor, one week she would say one thing, then the next week the exact opposite.  Even the counselor caller her out on that.  Which, of course, meant it was time to find a new marriage counselor.

"I'm fine." = I'm so pissed I could rip your balls off and shove them down your food hole.
"Do whatever you want." = There's only one appropriate thing you should do right now, but I'm not going to tell you what it is. However here's a hint, it is not whatever it is YOU want to do.
