We all know that a REAL man would fight a tiger and a python to keep them from derailing a train full of orphans on their way to turmor removal surgery in the big city.
Survey findings – what makes a man close to ideal?
Honesty. Kindness. Intelligence. Has a good sense of humour. More likely to have blue eyes than brown. Speaks at least two languages. More important that he is romantic than good in bed. Meat eaters are preferred to vegetarians. Is a good listener.
Survey findings – moderately important characteristics:
Drives a European car.
Wears a suit to work.
Has a degree.
Is clean shaven.
What do men think makes themselves ideal (more so than women)?
The ability to provide for their families.
I like that the survey says nothing about physical attractiveness and we all know that good looks will always trump all other possitive qualities that a person has. No one will ever know how great you are if they can't get past your weight, or your baldness. Good looks open doors and excuse bad behavior. Only after someone knows me for awhile do they see the value of inner qualities.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
