The world is a hard place to live in. Falling in love. Broken hearts. Standing up for what you believe in. Bandwagoners. Some with an entire month dedicated to their birthdays. Haters. Lovers. Tornadoes, earthquakes and economic meltdowns. Religion and politics. One dollar beer pubs and a few fashion statements that should have died years ago returning from the grave. Yet there’s still a couple of genuine cool things gentlemen can still do through these days to keep our “edge”.
-Call her the next day. The “wait for three days rule” will always be cool to break. If she herself is already expecting that from you… you’d pleasantly catch her off guard and intrigue her evermore, separating yourself from the rest.
-Some rules that are not cool to break: Never date your friends ex, never date your ex’s friend, never date your ex’s roommate. Dating one person from that list will inevitably make you lose some friends for your new date. Don’t be that guy/girl. No cutting in line, no cutting a “line” in the bathroom, its ok to have a napkin on your lap but not your collar and never ok to look through a womans purse or phone.
-A gentleman never publicly worries, complains or comments about money. A gentleman who is cool never hesitates to pick up the tab. At a business lunch, give your credit card to the waiter before you’re seated. This ends the debate when the meal is finished before it even begins. It also makes you the one that’s always on point and aware. Works wonders with potential business partners. Never brag about how much you make or spend. Trust, no one likes that person.
-Buy a cup of coffee for the person behind you. “Have a great morning”, might be initiated by you and there starts an endless chain of small good deeds being passed down from one person to the next. A gentleman does things like that out of heart, morals and expecting nothing in return. Bragging about how much blood you donated to save lives, clothes donated to keep people warm or community hours put in with a church is never cool. AT ALL.
-Displaying your masculinity at the bar or club or Sunday morning church service like a lion stalking a wounded herd of scattered sheep is – in laymans terms- a big no-no. In the circle-of-life of the animal kingdom, this always ends in a bloody massacre. So take note: stay cool , calm and collected.
-Don’t be afraid to take an initiative and make decisions, even if you’re not the authoritative type. Call the shot. Whether or not your gun is loaded, pull the trigger. Confidence is cool. Especially if no one around you does it, at least you had the guts to.
-Never lose your cool. This is uncool.
-Throwing up is never cool unless you’re with the band. The excuse of “It’s because I drank like 30 shots”, will never work…what were doing drinking that much anyway and what did you expect?
-Facebook is a public place. Stay cool by staying mysterious as you would in the real world. Lose the inside jokes and status updates every twenty minutes. You might need to get a Twitter. No one cares about what youre eating. What did you wait for all your food to come out so you can take that picture? Unless of course you asked for it like that( I used to work in a restaurant) but some do it only depending on where they’re eating. Especially at upscale restaurants. Lame. Stop getting too personal as if its your diary. This one goes for guys and girls. Stop asking Facebook if you should cut your hair, what to wear and if you should get “French tips”. Are you serious? You have no sense of style? You have to resort to asking people that are doing the same for themselves?
-Hang out with people you could learn a thing or two from.
-Always speak with confidence no matter the subject matter.
-Lose the baggy clothes unless you make millions performing rap.
-Popped collars are not cool. This look only works with your winter jacket…also, depending on the jacket. I did this mistake one time in high school. Who could blame me? I was seventeen and my collar had a saying(or design, cant remember) you could only see if popped. Lol.
-Keep dates unique and different. The dinner and a movie thing? Please. I mean doable but mainly if she suggests it. Dinner yes of course you have to eat and enjoy a convo. She has dinner and movie nights with her girlfriends though.
-Always let her win first on a first date…in anything. Bar/Billiards/Arcade/Carnival settings…its all fair game.
-Ask her out. Its that simple. You casually flirt but take it easy. Shes wondering if youd do it anyways. Wonders if you have the guts. Nothings cooler or sexier than a man who has the confidence to do so. But if she says no? Your world didn’t stop and implode. Surprise.
Be the gentleman everyone likes to be around while being yourself.
This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: First: Anonymous 4Chan trolls posted a fake screenshot of a tweet by verified “Entertainment Tonight” that “confirmed” Justin Bieber had leukemia. Tweets from Kanye, Nicki Minaj, and Chris Brown seemed to support the news.
Then: Beliebers began posting pics and vids of themselves with their heads shaved in a global show of support hashtagged #BaldForBieber.
Miraculously: The rumors were false and the Biebs is just fine, and now a bunch of tweens supposedly have no hair.
D-Aspartic Acid by PrimaForce is an all natural testosterone booster. Produced by the body… and, by far one of the worst tasting mixes to drink.
Directions: take one scoop (3,000 mg) one time per day with breakfast or first meal of the day. I’ve tried mixing it with Gatorade, cranberry juice and cereal… All an equal fail.
I’ve had to literally resort to wrapping half a scoop with a single piece (a square) of toilet paper tissue and swallow whole. Weird right?! But theeee best way for me to take down.
Ive taken other things for pre and post workouts while taking this so it’s kinda hard for me to tell if it’s fully worked. The only positive way to tell is to get blood work done. The one thing I can see a difference in myself is with harder and longer sex drives (libido/performance). Research has pointed me in the direction of getting this particular mix for it being 100% DAA with no fillers.
If you have time I suggest mixing in a blender with 12oz whole milk, half or full banana, 1-2 peanut butter scoops and your whey protein (preferably chocolate). Add strawberries or yogurt to mix things up…maybe 2% milk if you’re gonna be a little girl about it.

So here are some small reviews on some of these pre workouts that I’ve taken. This will all be in simple English so that no one gets lost. I’ll omit ingredients like N.O. 1,3-Dimethylamine or Bio-Molecular Mimickers so there’s no confusion as to what is in what and what it does. These were all acquired through Bodybuilding dot com. This site seemed to have the most ratings, reviews and great prices on A LOT of supplements which helped me get the ones I bought.
Assault by Muscle Pharm- Con: this one I liked the least of the three I will mention. Sometimes I’ll take this in the morning on an empty stomach. One time I felt bloated (which I never experienced with the other two) and I couldnt work out comfortably. A separate time I felt nauseated and a bit dizzy which again, I’d never experienced with the other two. The mixing took a lot more shakes than the other two. Tiny clumps, not too bad. Pros: It was great with mental focus. Not the high caffeine induced kind of focus but I zeroed in on virtually everything I was doing. The raspberry lemonade tasted great. Easy to get down with just 12oz of water needed. Felt it in about 20-30 min which isn’t bad if you’re in a rush. The tingling sensation or ant-like crawling or small needles running up and down your arms was intermediate, totally doable. Helps you wanna move and workout actually. Lasts about 2-3 hours. I also liked that it already has creatine Con-Cret. Saved me some money on buying the creatine by itself which I had planned to do.
Jack3d by USPlabs- Cons: this one lasted about 4-5 hours which lets face it, is too long. It’s also really high on caffeine. The tingling sensation was there but I needed to stack this with N.O. Fury to amplify it a bit more as I got used to the feeling, taking up to three scoops (the limit). Everybody is different and gets used to a certain amount though. Pros: The lemonade flavor tastes great on this one. Only 6oz of water needed no matter if one, two or three scoops is used. Mental focus was up to par as well. Easily mixable. Felt it in about 30-45 min which was fine with me. Never a problem taken on an empty stomach.
C4 by Cellucor- **Based on using this only twice** Cons: COULD NOT FIND ONE…WILL UPDATE IF NECESSARY Pros:So far my favorite. Icey Blue Razz tasted and mixed great…a lot better than the other two actually. This had the most intensified tingling sensation which I love. I felt it on my arms, back and sometimes my traps. It lasted about 2-3 hours which is ideal and felt it in about 20-30 min.Never a problem taken on an empty stomach.
