His daughters and wife talked with themselves while he ordered shitty beer and whiskey on the rocks pounding both drinks at the same time. It was sad to watch.

    We have created a society of men like himself, detached, unwilling to help themselves, they disengage from real life and obsess about a made up life where they can be the superhero they are not in real life. It's pretty easy, I'm sure his facebook page looked like a stellar weekend in the mountains and mentioned how much fun he was having. Yet he never put his phone down once, never fully engaged his family or his surroundings.

    It's so easy to be everything you are not online. People act and say things online that they would never do in real life. So people become obsessed with some girl who loves what she does and then they shit all over her, because what she accomplishes is all their broken dreams that they cannot fathom doing from behind a computer screen, alone in their house they lash out until on becomes so obsessed that they push the limits.
    So.... what are your aliases?

    Who's that angry dude from Snowbird that calls everybody a cunt? He seems like a possible suspect.

    In my case she told her parents, her parents told my parents, I had to apologize. A couple of years later I asked her out and she accepted. Alas, she moved to the 'burbs, along with just about everyone else in my neighborhood.

    What is a life pole? I honestly can't figure this out. I'm thinking about the poles life guards use to get people out of the pool, but can't make the connection to skiing?

    I suppose on some level its fair to voice your respectful criticism of the Instagram promotion lifestyle and it is true that this pretty girl is getting by in good part on her good looks. If she was unattractive she wouldn't be getting anywhere with the gig and living her dream, but so what? It takes a special kind of jerk to personally stalk someone because you don't like how their doing life or think they got more or better or easier than you and so to throw out vindictive and repeated insults and death wishes online is complete jack-assery. But some people think "its just the internet." Well it IS a person that you're insulting on the internet. And just forget about calling someone on their personal phone line to harass that is full asshole and probably criminal.

    Given the history of a few special people here, it does make me wonder if one of them could be behind it, but I guess the world is full of assholes.

    yup, but I'm dealing with my shit, it's been pretty good so far, counseling and group therapy go a long way

    I will get on my high horse and say I spent many years studying human behavior and then acting it out on stage and screen, it was a good time in my life but I gave it up, human behavior is pretty simple we think we're hiding our feelings and bullshit but we're not, it's out there for people to see, impulse is pretty hard to hide

    Life pole = a giant erect penis?

    Or maybe life was supposed to be lift. We may never know.

    talent is talent. Looking pretty is god given and takes effort to keep up. Shredding the gnar takes god given talent and takes effort to develop the skill and say in shape. someone having a gorgeous face is no different in my mind than someone naturally being super athletic. talent is talent. Don't hate, just appreciate others talent and be grateful you get to see it.

    I mean, would that guy be happier if all the chicks who crushed it at outdoorsy sports were ugly? WTF?

    IMO its an issue of violence period. Women are physically much weaker and are therefore much more prone to physical violence and domination. Kinda like how bullies don't like to pick on the big strong kid, they pick on the kids who are weaker- the weaker person is always going to be a target.

    People fucking suck. just teach your kid to not be a dick, and have a conscience.

    Hey, if you can figure out someone's vacation plans, town of residence, profession, relationship with spouse and relationship with kids just through restaurant observations, good for you, but I'm calling what I see: bullshit.

    People just aren't that simple. Broad assumptions are foolish, and it's easy to think we've got it figured out when we just observe from a distance, which is all too common in the days of social media.

    There isn't a violence epidemic against women. Epidemic means above normal.
    The violence was always there. The rates are decreasing, which is good.
    What is epidemic is awareness of the problem and social rejection of that status quo, which is also good.

    Yep. Here's a recent story. Friends of mine are in a hotel lobby with their 2 week old baby. Stink eye galore. Even a few comments. Same thing at the airport and on the flight. How could they be so irresponsible to bring a baby that little out of the house? What are they on vacation trying to pretend it's no big deal and their life won't change? And why isn't she breast feeding? What's up with the formula? Isn't she going to at least try?

    They flew across the country to adopt the fucking baby. That's why, assholes. People are far too quick to make assumptions.

    You REALLY have bought in to the notion that you should be ashamed to be a white male.
