What a deep thought out article Chase!
It is interesting how mainstream arguments become a loop of self-reinforcement. Support comes from within the group; the wrong proving the wrong as right.
Btw, I remember reading one of your articles. You and some people were on a road trip? And you and this guy was working on the girl during the trip. She isn't that pretty, but out of the group, she is the best looking. And you gave yourself a challenge to get her before the trip ends.
The message was usually if we don't have a girl at "Hi", it usually wouldn't go anywhere. <-- This message is also mentioned in another article about approaching. I spent an hour looking through the site but can't find it.
Does it ring any bells? The two articles?
