Prague: A Fairytale City with a Dark Communist Past

Things to do in Prague

Through my travels, I’ve come to realize my curiosities are insatiable. The more you learn about the world, the more you realize you don’t know. Perhaps a man should travel at least enough to become aware of his own ignorance. My fascination with World War II, The Cold War & Communism, keeps growing with each European trip. Even though “my cup’s not runneth over,” I’ll share what I’ve learned to make room in my grey matter—same way I learned flawless

How to Pass a Shit Test: Life’s Most Underrated Skill

If you grew up around people who “gave you shit” all the time, consider yourself lucky. It means you probably learned to deal with shit-testers in ways others did not. A shit test (ST) is when someone “gives you shit” to see how you react. It can be a question or assertion. Its intent is to elicit an emotional response from you. You’ll see the term used when studying female psychology, seduction and attraction. Women often ST men without realizing

Life Can Be a Real Headache

Head in a vise

It occurs to me, as I write this at age 37, that my life mostly feels like a fantasy dream. I do what I want, when I want…and things seem to work out for me. If I were told it’d all end tomorrow, I might borrow Lou Gehrig’s famous speech and upload it to the blog. There’s a new-ish cliché that says, “Everyone is battling something you know nothing about.” I’m no exception. I envision taking the rose-colored screens off your

Making Rational Decisions with “Yogi-isms” [in Costa Rica]

rational decisions

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with baseball. I wanted to be like Yogi Berra. He was one of my favorite “old-timers” because my grandfather, “Fats,” was an Italian catcher from the same era. If I hadn’t been born a southpaw, I probably would’ve been a catcher too. Berra was not only a “Hall of Famer,” but might’ve been equally well-known for his sayings, also known as “Yogi-isms.” They’ve become almost proverbs. I didn’t have the talent to

Navigating Relationships [for Men]

Men in Relationships

Relationships are hard. They’re even harder when you’re stupid. Many years and tears brought me to this realization. Truth is, I still may be no better at relationships than you. My best qualifications for writing about the interplay between men and women are a preponderance of boneheaded moves. Richard Feynman once said, “I don’t know anything, but I do know that everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough.” That describes how I think about women and relationships.

Feedback from my Masculinity Article

Feedback from Masculinity Article

The topic of male/female differences, and our respective communication styles, is seemingly taboo in our society. Our unwillingness to discuss inter-gender dynamics helps none of us in relationships. How men and women interact is the basis and barometer of our civilization. I can think of no more valuable skill set to possess than that of a good communicator. And no more important relationship than the one with our significant other. Like any skill set, the art of communication can be

From Ancient Love to Current Feelings

Romeo Juliet Balcony

The concept of “love” is so important that I rarely tell someone, “I love you,” unless I’d be willing to die for them. It seems crazy that we’d make the ultimate sacrifice for another person. But love is an irrational intensity of affection and loyalty we’ve developed over millennia to ensure our species’ survival. There is no more powerful force of humanity than the emotional attachment or “love” we feel for another person. “Three things will last forever–faith, hope and

We Need More Masculinity in America, Not Less

Masculinity

There’s a disturbing trend in our country: Young men are abandoning masculinity and becoming more feminine; young women are becoming more masculine. This observation became glaringly obvious when I returned to the United States after visiting parts of Latin America and Eastern Europe. At a coffee shop in Bucharest, Romania, I was talking to a local guy about the stunning beauty of Romanian women. I expected him to tell me that he prefers American women, as most men I meet

How to use Sexual Energy for Maximum Utility

Sexual Energy

Imagine you’re in your late 50s sitting on a bar stool in Thailand surrounded by ladyboys. You’ve thrown away your marriage, family, and a decent paying job back in the States. Your face looks like an old catcher’s mitt and you’ve basically given up on life. All because you couldn’t figure out a way to subordinate your impulses to values. By now you’re wondering if the guy I just described is made up. Nope, I don’t write fiction. There’s actually

barbed-wire-jail

My goal is to save one reader’s life out there with this story about drugs, death, and the ten-year prison sentence I survived. My name is Billy B. from Wealth Well Done, and this is how I survived prison and accidentally found my path to wealth. My nightmare began on a summer-school morning in 2002.  I was a normal 21-year-old college student who stumbled to class with a drug hangover. As I walked home, I called a friend who had partied with
