We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Do normal guys like to hang out with guys and act stupid? Of course. In some ways, we never mature past age 7. In Teddy Roosevelt's case, age 6. Young women, often, do not comprehend the developmentally-arrested aspects of the male psyche.
I was watching an episode of Jackass with my then-15-year-old son. We were both laughing our butts off. My wife stopped by, watched for a minute, and then said "I can understand him laughing, but you're an adult! What's your excuse?"
My answer was, "Honey, you have to understand that inside the chest of every adult male beats the heart of a 15-year-old boy."
The redneck paintball duck hunting video is either the funniest stupid thing or the stupidest funny thing I've seen in a long time. And I've been known to watch an episode of "Wipeout" on the occasion.
