Re: Roosh's mental breakdown

He can't fade back into a normal white-collar job. I don't think he would want to fade back even if he could... Also, leadership is not very effective if it's anonymous. Yes, you can pass information around... but you can't inspire people to the same degree you can if you come forward properly. It'...

Re: How to turn hostels into hotels

Yeah, that's why I barely daygamed in my last trip to Stockholm. It's a night gamer's solution. For daygame it wouldn't work, unless every now and then you stay up for 24 hours so you can daygame too. In my last Stockholm trip I did this twice (and pulled both times, pretty much because I stayed on ...

Male Privilege: Picking up the ball that Roosh dropped and running with it

This is the thread for all discussion on the new male-centered forum, Male Privilege. I will start this off by quoting my friend alphacentauri from RVF: https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-73256-post-1984650.html#pid1984650 The reason RVF towers head and shoulders above other PUA forums is that IT'S ...

How to turn hostels into hotels

It just occurred to me that there is a way to turn every hostel in the world into essentially a hotel: Sleep during the day. Then you have the whole room to yourself. I've been using hostels since '96, so it's pretty incredible that I only just realized this. I guess it has to do with my currently f...

MCU going SJW

In my view, Spider-Man: Homecoming was the movie in which the MCU went SJW. Previous movies had the odd SJW element here or there (e.g. Heimdall made black for Thor), but they weren't noticeable if you weren't looking for them. And then suddenly, with Homecoming, we have a deluge of blatant SJW mate...

Roosh's mental breakdown

Say what you want, but what happened to Roosh was a mental breakdown. We can't discuss that on his forum, for obvious reasons, not the least of which are common decency and respect, but I think it deserves to be discussed... for the sake of science , really, if nothing else. After all, Roosh is a ki...

icycalm's ten-fruits-and-vegetables-a-day guide

The general rule of thumb is that you should be eating about five "portions" of fruits and vegetables a day, preferably different ones (i.e. not five bananas). However, at some point I read an article that said that while five is sufficient to derive most of the benefits that research shows you can,...
