The true poon hounds are the guys rocking a Zack Morris phone.

Konichiwa biatches, I have a sprint flip phone that predicts that I'm going to be burning a path of poon through Nippon like Cortes after he destroyed his boatS.

Flip-phone-using are old so you don't have to spend too much time with them before they die and you get their money.

'dog gets confused by escalator cute,'

Not running out to get the latest model applying to women as well. Got it.

Foreign correspondence is the easiest job in the world.  Crap out a completely bogus article just before the deadline and then go back to wasting time.  It's not like the editor's going to fact-check when all the sources are a world apart and speak another language.

Women always go for guys who are the opposite of what they say they want. Remember when they said they want a guy thats sensitive and not afraid to cry? You know what those guys are doing friday night? Nothing. Meanwhile Oj was banging hot chicks after he killed his ex.

Cry once without a parent dying and you can phone it in, because it's over.

Have you seen and heard Japanese women in their porn?

Submissive squealing like guinea pigs. It's hideous. Who cares what these people do.

That sound you hear is the droves of Farkers running out to get a Samsung flip phone and a ticket to Tokyo.

But how is this not obvious? Any woman with half a brain in her head is going to be attracted to a person who has a decent job, dresses and carries himself nicely and doesn't spend all of his money on toys because that means he has more money to spend on her. This goes the same for cars.

Good locational name-drop.

A (female) family friend and her boyfriend live a little bit west of Shinjuku.  I had to overnight in Tokyo a few years ago on my way somewhere, so she met me at the airport, took me to Shinjuku station, and walked me over to the Best Western, a little bit east of the station.  Everything seemed normal until I walked her back out to the main street.  Walking by myself the 2 short blocks of side street back to the Best Western, I suddenly encountered lots of men, both local and Ghanaian, who were quite eager to inform me where the best bars, clubs, and girls were...

If I ever say "wrong side of the tracks" and get a confused look from a Japanese co-worker, Kabuki-cho is going to be my explanation. :)

Not to put too fine a point on it, if your coloration is obviously northern european and you stand at average height or taller for a white guy (i.e. 5'10" and up) then if you actually travel to Japan you wouldn't need a phone of any type.

I mean, you'll only get a certain type of girl, but there are probably a lot more of them than the type that pay rapt attention to your personal electronics and it's not like they're any shallower.

Hey, is it my fault if they're too confused to know it's a bad idea?

Stairs make my knees hurt and I get claustrophobic in elevators, so I'm buying an escalator to heaven.

Well, for starters. they're getting a guy who won't be ignoring them in favor of a smartphone.

I like my flip phone 'cause it's just like a Star Trek Communicator.

/lock on these coordinates and beam me aboard, Misaki...

I like my flip phone just fine. I don't really need a data plan, I don't text much, it fits in my pocket easily, and best of all, I can drop the thing on the concrete and it still works. Considering I drop the damn thing almost weekly, this is a very important feature.
Plus it is nearly theft proof. Nobody's going to steal a beat up old flip phone if I happen to leave it laying in the car. Even if they do, I can go buy a new one for $15 at Wal Mart.

Fact: Flip phones grow tentacles when opened.

'Cause guys with old flip phones might spend the date actually, like, talking to her while guys with smart phones are too busy playing nekowiz to do more than grunt for more drink bar calpis?

Great. Like I needed another reason to miss my Star-Tac. No phone since has equalled its simple, rugged, easy-to-use design. It was a masterpiece for its day. In fact, if I could buy a new one today, I would. Stupid touchscreen. I long for the day that we dump the touchscreen for something better, so we can get away from the notepad form factor.

I'm still rockin' a flip phone, costs me $50/year and does what I need it to:  Be something portable that's attached to a phone number for those rare situations where I need that.  I'd use it more for texting but its one of those hit the button multiple times to change letters ones and that drives me nuts.

I'm definitely downgrading after my contract is up, maybe sooner. Smartphones are a ripoff for most people who use them, especially if you have a business phone as well.

Worse. Married with kids. Just tired of articles about what women like in men. They are always full of shiat.

That is exactly my situation, BB is my carry around because work and the flip is typically left at home and only exists to own a phone number and occasionally get used.  I use a pay as you go setup on the flip where you can just drop $100 that doesn't expire for a year, turns out last year I didn't even use half the $100 so it carried over.
