LOL.

Truth here.

If youre a man, you gotta be cool.

Or be gone.

It's funny, but honestly also saddening. If I had it to do over again, I would have never wasted all those years slaving away towards a BSME. I could have put that energy, money and precious age in my life towards more fruitful pursuits, like hunting women, learning another language, starting a band...
