    A Dating Dilemma

    So this woman has been in the news round here a bunch this week thanks to taking an invitation for drinks and turning it into an oyster buffet while streaming it to TikTok (which now has some ungodly amount of views in the tens of millions on Twatter and other socials); her date apparently went to the bathroom and never came back. Apparently it got picked up by the national news spots and the ensuing comments/converstaions have been hilarious.

    Woman eats 48 oysters on viral Tik Tok date

    So, what would you have done here?

    Me, I love oysters. Maybe not 48 in one sitting if I'm not on a dock next to the boat that brought em in, but that alone wouldn't likely be enough to chase me off. The videoing/ticktockcocking and tipping 14% however would be.

    I believe that every single video I see on the internet like this is 100% fake, scripted bullshit.

    Okay to enjoy it for the entertainment that it is, but to assume it's anything real that happened and thus should spark a discussion on the merits of those involved is silly.

    But would you stick around to pay for your date (that you invited for drinks) to get those shits?

    So I think you're with me; the "date" should have left when she started filming her magnum opus?

    Ah, oysters. I was never a huge fan, and blindfolded I'm not sure I could tell the difference between eating an oyster or horse snot. But once I was at a dinner with the CEO of a large French company and he suggested I try some of the local oysters while we were in Brittany.

    The French call them huitres and like most things French, the they are always saying things like, "Boof I tell you, you can't get oysters like this in your country"...usually while holding a lit cigarette in one hand. I know this isn't true, but I try to humor them. Hence, my general dislike for the French. I should mention it was also a month that didn't end in "r."

    But believing my host, I took the plunge and ordered a dozen wild harbor oysters. All seemed well until later that evening when the severe stomach cramping and vomiting set in. Not wanting to miss my flight back to the US, I struggled to get to Charles-de-Gaulle the next morning still dealing with some lingering effects.

    I managed to board the plane and took my seat next to another Frenchman. You can't avoid them in France. 30 minutes into the flight he orders the cheese platter with the stinkiest cheeses known to man. That sent me running to the bathroom for yet another session of vomiting. I spent most of the flight in that bathroom--it had a small window and I seriously thought about breaking it and jumping into the Atlantic and joining the oysters.

    A Dating Dilemma

    Others speculated that there was no date at all and the whole situation was fabricated. Fontaine’s did not immediately respond to a request for ccomment, but the restaurant confirmed to Rolling Stone that employees saw her with a date and the general manager, Kelcey Flanagan, told the outlet that the date returned to the table after Equana paid the bill.

    So… staged?

    This. I could see *maybe* splitting them and eating two dozen but that would still be a stretch.

    If really fresh oysters were on the menu I would certainly participate in the context of a date or whatever, and be happy to pay my share. Been a while since I've been on the dating scene and nowadays it seems to be a horror show but the concept of the man paying regardless is outdated at best.

    That said, both parties here are retards for numerous reasons. Red flags abound but a little simple communication could have minimised the drama. Obviously though, the Gal wanted drama and she got it. Poor guy was proly overwhelmed and didn't know what else to do but again, whole situation was easily avoidable, see red flags.

    Imagine the sloshing sex and smell if the guy was gaming to get laid.
    So the world is filled with tubular entities. Food goes in one end and shit comes out the other. Sperm goes in and babies come out.

    Pretty much this.

    From what I see there is a very large chunk of the population where this is how they go about maneuvering life. Cause a shitshow; get attention; get what you want; repeat. Self-fulfilling.

    After watching that video, I feel very, very removed from the kinds of lives pictured, and very very grateful for that.

    If the road we followed took us to here, of what use was the road?
