    Dan, is that really Neil Strauss on the PUA forum, or some guy pretending to be him? I've read a few of "Neil Strauss"'s posts and he does claim to be the same Neil Strauss who wrote The Game. Remarkable that he still posts in those forums so long after he claims to have left the 'community'. For me, that's more evidence that he was actually way deeper into that shit than he claims to have been in the book.

    With regards this PUA shit, there is no doubt some valuable advice in there. But like with any self-help regime, adhering slavishly to a single doctrine is a recipe for something just as bad as the malady you were trying to cure in the first place: you become an obsessive, one-dimensional bore. It's best with all these things to pick and choose what works for you, and not become part of a 'community' dedicated to the singular pursuit of said goals. Because that's how you end up wearing Jesters' hats and using terms like 'sarging' with no sense of irony. A slippery slope.

    That XKCD strip........shows a real lack of understanding of so much. Not his audience and how to troll obviously.

    As long as we are reviving old threads, I wonder how Lanugo feels about RooshV and this whole Return of Kings kerfuffle?

    yeah, this sure was a crazy thread!

    bumping it for this, his story of dealing with the California wildfires:

    Lessons I Learned From Losing Everything Two Days Ago

    a twist towards the end, can't imagine the emotions through the course of this ordeal.

    hope all our cali dissensians are safe.

    I copped this book once upon a time and hid it under a pile of porn and nazi memorabilia

    Can't recall if I ever tried out any of its creepy techniques, I think I fundamentally lacked the balls to do it, which is really the insurmountable problem with a lot of this stuff

    I remember seeing Strauss being interviewed on youtube and he had the weediest voice and demanour imaginable, if all that stuff really worked for him it's truly a terrifying prospect

    Either that or attach electrodes to my nuts and give one of my mates the remote control.
    Ah young Corpsey

    Hiding the fact you'd already bought the book, weren't you?
