Raul told me a funny story the other day about a conversation he had with his mom recently. She’s a really nice lady, which is strange considering what a depraved misanthrope her son is. Anyway, he happened to refer to someone as a “douchebag”, and his mom cracked up. He apologized for his crudeness, but she said,
“No no, it’s just when I was growing up (in the late 50s-early 60s) we used to call people douchebags all the time. Are kids calling people douchebags again?”
Amazing. Anyway, that story got me thinking about the modern douchebag and the impact he has had on society. The douchebag and his opposite, the hipster, are the yin and yang … [Read more]

In my previous article on Singapore, I detailed the numerous drawbacks for the single dude to Singapore. Seen from that perspective, Singapore sounds terrible- high prices, gold diggers, fagbagsters, DAFFs, and retardation do not make a good single dude travel destination. But, in case you find yourself in Singapore for some reason beyond your control, don’t lose heart. You can make it work here if your skills are good and your bankroll is … [Read more]
First and foremost I have to disclaim that we take no responsibility if you get your ass kicked or worse when trying to make friends with dangerous people. That said it is almost always better to have the dangerous people on your side rather than neutral or [obviously] against you. As much as we like to make fun of mafia douchebags, it can be useful at times to have them as friends. Of course they are always going to be guys that know how to get you contraband like drugs but also they will watch your back if they like you. If you have a good mafia douchebag friend there is no way you are … [Read more]
“Wow, this bar is fun! There’s hot chicks everywhere, the dance floor is pumping, and the team is just killing tonight. Bartender, get these girls some drinks! Yeah, whatever they want. I’ll have some more vodka, sure, just put it on my tab. Dude, these chicks are ready to go, let’s invite them back to the apartment. Bartender!”
“Five hundred dollars? You have got to be kidding me. I’m not paying that, that’s ridiculous.
“Wait, where did all those mafia douchebags come from? Uh oh. This is getting ugly. OK, OK, we’ll pay. Just let me go to the ATM. What?”
“You’re all going to walk there with me?”
And that’s how it goes, … [Read more]
Just as I felt the need to proclaim my undying love for Mexico, I too feel the need to make a similar proclamation of my amorous feelings toward the wonderful Republic of Bulgaria. It’s taken me a lot of world travel to truly appreciate how much this small country has to offer in one neat little package. I mean really, the only drawbacks of Bulgaria are a decrepit infrastructure ravaged by communism and the mafia douchebag infestation which is currently raging much as it is everywhere else in Eastern Europe. But really besides some holes in the road and the poser gangsters, there really aren’t any significant drawbacks to Bulgaria.
Let’s talk about all the … [Read more]
Kiev, Ukraine, a major city right in the heart of Eastern Europe. It’s certainly a place worth visiting at least once but I’m going to have to surprise even myself here and give it a mixed review. I’ve only visited Kiev twice, once recently and once many years ago. I was surprised to find the women less beautiful than I remembered and the city itself more beautiful. If you haven’t been to Eastern Europe yet you may not know that many Eastern Europe cities are huge concrete wastelands of architectural diarrhea courtesy of the communist era. There are exceptions though such as Prague, Riga, Zagreb and to some degree definitely Kiev.
Let’s talk about the other major … [Read more]
