Male YouTube-User Question: "How do I get nerd girls to like me?"

Full answer: Vlog Brothers explain.

Part that I appreciated:

"I have this theory that girls, at least girls not named Bella, have this warning system inside their heads. And whenever we get too obsessed with them and focused on them, it's like BEEP BEEP BEEP! Back away, back away! BEEP BEEP BEEP! Back away!

Which, by the way, is a totally helpful warning system because no girl, or person for that matter, will ever fill up the holes inside of you. It's like chinese finger-cuffs. The way to get them off your fingers is instead of being panicked and over-eager, just relax.

Oh, and one other thing guys. It would be really helpful if you can see girls as, like, people, instead of pathways to kissing and/or salvation. One of the things I've noticed over the years is that if you treat girls like people, admittedly people who like fart jokes somewhat less than the rest of your friends, they are much more likely to like you."

I've had that warning system go off more than once.

See also: "How to Make Guys Like You", which isn't quite as direct or useful, but is still funny.
timepiececlock: (Rashaka is my name)
I was thinking about how badly I want the Obama administration to appoint two women to the Supreme Court over the next 4-8 years, and how disappointed I will be if that number doesn't at least get to 3/9. Or even better, 4/9! But I'm being realistic, so I'm hoping for 3/9, which is one better than the 2/9 we had before Justice O'Connor retired.

I was chatting with another female fan who said "More women are always good," and I replied with this thought, which struck me as sincere enough to me and important enough to me that I wanted to post it here.

Sometimes when I feel bad about wanting more stuff for women, like I'm thinking about it too much, like it's sexist or one-sided to look for the women or the feminine aspect in a lot of things, I step back and remind myself that when we have 51% of everything--maybe even 50.5%--then I will TOTALLY hold my hands up and chill out and explore new options.

Until then, I resolve not to apologize or feel guilty.

I think the humor in HIMYM episodes are really come-and-go for some people. I get that. But the last, I don't know, 8 episodes have been solid make-me-laugh-and-giggle-ridiculously episodes. This one added to that. There's something very free about this season in terms of embracing the silliness and the love, and that formula has translated to mucho grande laughs from me.

So, yeah, I loved this episode too. In fact, in terms of # of laughs per ep, this was one of the highest of the season for me. )
