This movement for it's first 50 years was a TOTAL SAUSAGE FEST.
There are some reasons for this. We are cranial and haughty and our number one means of advancement as individuals or as a group is DEBATE.
Which is a $10 word for ARGUMENT. wE WILL ARGUE THE SUN RISING IN THE EAST AND SETTING IN THE WEST. PROVE IT. SHOW ME SO I CAN TELL YOU ARE FOR REAL.
We fight at the drop of a hat and like pitbulls and once engaged we will not disengage until only one of us remains and we really don't care which.
Women want to be loved and protected and all we have to tell them is ONE DAY THEY ARE COMING AND WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE, IT COULD BE NOW, IT COULD BE AN HOUR FROM NOW OR A WEEK OR A YEAR BUT WE ARE DOOMED.
We can and will sire children and we will leave them just as quick to fight an enemy real or perceived. To us this is the most high form of responsibility, to destroy your enemies but we neglect you in the process. We think we are doing the right thing but all you are asking for is a hug.
All in all we make horrible husbands and merely passable fathers. But we make some of the best friends for life. Our word is our bond and we are what people used to call "real men".
We will stand in the face of a tornado and say "YOU DON'T LOOK SO TOUGH, BRING IT! HEY WAIT WHERE YOU GOING? DON'T YOU WALK AWAY WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU, YOU LITTLE PUNK".
Because there are few things we fear. But among these are God and our wives.
Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.
