The Sad Fate of the Male of the Species

The Sad Fate of the Male of the Species
cute pick up lines to use on guys

As soon as we arrived up at the house at Blueblood on Sunday, my sharp-eyed mate, Mike Cassell told me of an impending natural event that I would not want to miss. He guided me to the front of the house where a large female spider had built her web. A small male on the make was cautiously walking around her. We watched him circle the female several times. The tension in the air was intense.

Here’s a shot of the hapless fellow checking the scene:

Well, we all know how this is going to end, don’t we? All except the poor male spider. This takes me back to high-school. I was that most unusual combination of a slightly geeky guy with a truly boss set of wheels. This confused the girls. I was called "cute" which is the last word a guy wants to hear in a verbal description of him. Oh, how they loved the car, an Austin Heally. Many a cruise ended with, "Thanks for the ride. You’re cute." Grrrrrrr . . . And no phone number.

My problems were a picnic compared the the nasty surprise that this little guy has in store.

Here he is chatting her up. His palps are quivering and his forelegs are vibrating like crazy. One can almost detect the faint spider talk, "Hey baby, lookin’ for a good time?":

Sadly, nobody has told him that this is a very poor pick-up line for a male spider to use. The problem is that it implies dinner and there is only one item on the menu.

About this time I blew the lunch trumpet. Really. We have an old bugle there at the house.

During lunch we discussed matters of more import, specifically, how to get Eunie out of the country as quickly as possible down to Cairns for a thorough medical exam. I have decided, after much internal debate, that I’m going to go with her. We’re not expecting anything dramatic. It looks for the moment that the worst outcome might be to stick in one of those little clipper-snipper things through a hole the size of your pinkie and yank out her gall bladder. She is looking pretty yellow. Up until this morning I was still thinking that I would just be in the way and it costs a bundle and who’s going to take care of things here at the office and blah, blah, blah, one "reason" after the other to act "responsibly".

Then, this morning, I got my head screwed on straight. Where do you belong when your spouse is sick? Duh! I’m going to Cairns. Everything else can take care of itself. Hey, if I dropped dead in my chair right now, the world would go on, eh? (At least I think  it would, but that gets into a philosophical discussion for which I’m not prepared at the moment. Maybe later. It will be fun.)

Anyway, let’s get back to the drama of the spider and her unfortunate lover. (That would make a good title for a novel – The Unfortunate Lover.)  *

What we did not know was that the spider love fest had already reached its conclusion and the female was enjoying her  lunch:

Clicking on this will reveal a quite graphic view of the lady spider devouring her former mate.

Well, if I had the time today, I could do a few paragraphs of allegorical humor and anecdotal musings connecting this to the existential value of maleness. I mean, really, how many of us do you need? How big do we need to be? Do we require brains at all? Should anybody care a whit what we think? Much of nature zips along quite nicely with none of the mess of males casting about for means to perpetuate their macho selves and fouling the air with testosterone fumes.

Food for another post.

There is a terrific potential bonfire stacked up on the beach. This spot attracts a lot of driftwood. We will probably start dragging it up on higher ground soon so that it can be well dried so that we can have have a huge fire at Christmas time. For a little stress relief, I decided to take a couple of pictures:

An interesting thing in this shot is the green sand. The sand itself is not really green. It is covered by a thin film of algae.

As a tip of the hat to the possible discovery of US0,000,000 worth of Ansel Adams glass plate negatives (which I can’t wait to see!) I decided to do another shot in monochrome.

I think that I like it better.

*nbsp; There is a poem by Andrew Marvel bearing that title. After a couple of read-throughs, I decided that I didn’t understand a single word. I did a little checking on the web. I don’t feel so bad now, because it seems that nobody else understands it either. I’m feeling much better about my own poems now.

Cute pick up lines are not the way to go when attracting girls. The whole idea of using “pick up lines” is so old and ineffective.  Just speak to any woman and she will tell you that it doesn’t work.  I’ve interviewed hundreds of women, who have all come to the same conclusion.

Don’t expect to be successful with women if you plan on using girl pick up lines. I am sick and tired of seeing people who promote this false pathetic idea. If you want to be successful with women you a do not use corny lines.  You need a different approach.

If you do use cheesy lines then you are going to get rejected. It is as simple as that. I am going to save  you the trouble and embarrassment of rejection and tell you how to approach a woman (the right way). These are the right approaches to get her interested in you.

Listed are below are three sure ways to get a woman attracted to you:

Do not use cute pick up lines. In fact, don’t use any pick up lines for that matter.  A  simple smile on your face with a “Hi, my name is X.” is a thousand times more effective than any other stupid line. In fact, countless interviews with women has shown that a plain old fashioned hello is the best way to approach a woman. Shocking, I know!
Do not compliment her on her looks. This is where a lot of guys get it wrong. They make her feel all special and compliment her on her beauty as soon as they meet her. The word “loser” screams to her when you do that. You NEVER want her to feel like a beauty queen. She didn’t have to work to be beautiful. Compliment her on her beauty and you will immediately lose value with her like all the other desperate guys who chased her. You only compliment on her non-physical attributes when she is earned the compliment.
Show her that you are disinterested. I know it sounds shocking! But you have to understand that she is used to getting hit on all the time and getting shown interest. If you do the opposite she will be shocked and will want you more. As she has to work for you, something she is not used to.
