Robert McGinley Myers writes about audiophile creep and the placebo effect on his blog The Anxiety Machine. Myers is what you might call a “recovering audiophile” - he spend thousands of dollars on audio equipment over a few years of fascination with pre-amps, rewired iPods and fancy headphones. While he was doing it, he could swear he could tell the difference. But could he?
The question extends to wines, as well - if many people can’t even tell the difference between red and white wine when blindfolded, why buy fancy wine? And what about alternative medicine? Little of it has demonstrated effects beyond placebo.
But Myers argues that placebo is nonetheless an important effect. Enthusiasts get real emotional benefits from their connoisseurship, even if it’s hoakum. And for many health problems, placebo effects are a Godsend, important in reducing stress and improving health.
It made me think of those of us who love menswear, and what our enthusiasm means for our lives. It’s worth considering whether you’re spending yourself into the poor house, whether you’re getting benefit from your time, and whether you’ve got a stable balance.
Keep throwing shade boos, as long as it gives you something to do.

Best Made has gotten in stock a book titled “The Woodbook" including an amazing collection of American wood samples, illustrating different cuts and details from Romeyn Beck Hough’s collection. As a begrudgingly former woodworker, I am drooling over its wonderful photographs. For this post I had to select one of my favorites to work with, mahogany. A great gift for the ambitious want to be woodworker or the curmudgeon who never leaves their shop in your life. Also at $30 pre-shipping costs, you can’t go wrong.
I finally got posting originally to work back over on CanaryCoal!
[Chart from White & Kowalsky article in Psychology of Women Quarterly, 1994, showing that most women who kill their spouses do so out of self-defense and receive a 15-20 year sentence, whereas most men who kill their spouse do so for reasons of sexual jealousy and receive a 2-6 year sentence. Text above chart reads “Stereotype of gender differences in aggression…sustains male power.”]
For all those “domestic violence hurts men tooooo” types who just want to pretend violence in our society isn’t gendered
Oh my god yes

Some examples of how “men’s rights activists” are threatening and intimidating feminists. There is absolutely no justification for this kind of behavior, and I urge all anti-feminist men (and anti-feminist others) to at the very least not stoop to the level of threatening atrocities or publishing someone’s personal information. I may not agree with your points of contention when it comes to the feminist movement, but that will never cause me to harm you or your family. AVFM and similar MRA groups need to be stopped, for the safety of society as a whole.

"all women belong in the kitchen," the self-centered asshole says
the ground moves and the walls shake as all women around the world barricade themselves inside of their kitchens. they cook and eat and drink while the men outside of the barricades suffer from hunger and insanity. the males perish from famine and the women emerge united, choosing beyoncé as their supreme and unquestioned leader
