"Critical, then, to the maintenance of Waterhouse's sanity is the ability to ejaculate every two to three days."

In a previous relationship, Asprey tracked everything his girlfriend ingested, then correlated it with her moods.

I wonder why that relationship ended.

I don't profess to know much about women, but I'm pretty sure this "Sometimes I can look at it [Lisa's weight] and say, 'Wow are you stressed out lately? Your weight is going up,'" is not something you're going to want to say.

blondski: If my partner walked around and monitored all that I ate and then told me the food was making me grumpy instead of his ass like behavior I would beat him with a bat.

You'd probably beat me too, but for the guys out there... here's a piece of advice on what to do when your girlfriend gets grumpy.

1. Make sure she's eaten. "Hey, are you hungry? I'm hungry. When's the last time you ate?"
2. Make sure she's had enough sleep. "Hey, I'm kinda tired. Did you get enough sleep last night? Let's take a nap."

These two things alone solve 99% of the grumpiest behavior.

I had a couple of friends who were skeptical, but tried it on their girlfriends and were thanking me a few days later. -It's amazing how many arguments fixing those two things will solve.

I find that the less time I spend trying to track my overall life satisfaction, the more satisfied I am overall with my life.

If it takes this much effort to be happy with someone you should look for someone else. Clearly things aren't working out.

Eddie Adams from Torrance: The Angry Hand of God: I don't think I have gone more than 3 days without beating off since I figured it out. At 8 days, I would probably burst in my pants rubbing up next to a girl on the subway.

I don't think I have gone more than 3 days without bursting in my pants rubbing up next to a girl on the subway.

You call it "rubbing"
I call it "foreplay"
She usually calls it "assault"

Ugh. So much wrong with this from a methodology perspective. The problem with studying behaviour in this manner is that people's behaviour changes when they know it is being studied. This applies when you are monitoring yourself. The problem with personally using intrusive devices and methods to gather data about your behavioural baselines is that the presence of these intrusive devices and methods means you aren't at your behavioural baseline in the first place.

Psychologists and sociologists setting up behavioural experiments have to go to an enormous amount of trouble to create naturalistic settings that put the participants at ease so that they can get anything resembling reliable results from their experiments, and with more complex questions in sociology and anthropology experimentation is all but impossible; that's why techniques like participant observation were developed instead.

These are known issues that have demonstrably interfered with behavioural research in the past. It's not a trivial problem at all. I have deep, deep doubts about the reliability or generalisability of any data people like the subject of TFA gather, even with respect to their own personal lives.

What about that brief dip immediately after the orgasm due to uncontrollable crying and shame. Did he factor that in as well?
