Gadabout "On-Hold"

While Gadabout is deep in his Graduate Studies he will be taking a break. He will still check email and post from time to time.

From the SPAM Filters


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour.
Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with “nothing” usually end in “fine.”

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That’s Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. “That's okay” means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says “Thanks a lot” - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say “you're welcome” that will bring on a “whatever”).

(8) Whatever: Is a woman's way of saying F-- YOU!

(9) Don’t worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking “What's wrong?”
For the woman's response refer to #3.

Number II

Gadabout is on the cusp of committing to a new project. It is a special project that has the potential of bringing together men of varying faith, ethnicity, race and nationality. It revolves around the one, and only one, common bond that exists between all of us (men).

What I am addressing is the commonality of our eternal fascination with Number II. Stop those negative thoughts! This is a story of stories, from men across the globe that are ready, willing and able to share their personal best Number II experience. And let’s face it fellow dudes, we all have a favorite story or two about a Number II. Take a moment to reflect on your own personal past and relive THAT wonderful, intriguing and momentous achievement. It feels great just to recall that event…right?

This project will be tastefully assembled, professionally edited and will feature you (if you so decide to contribute). Imagine YOUR best Number II adventure documented for posterity. Imagine the pride swelling inside knowing that you have shared history with all men across the globe. Imagine reading a tale from a Taliban Terrorist, and discovering that you have something in common with a Jihadist! Number II has the potential of removing barriers and of building bridges.

Join our Number II team by sending your story to "" Make a difference – save a life.
