A Powerful Way to Build Attraction With A Girl You Have a Crush On

Here in this article, you will learn a great way to make a girl or a woman feel a STRONG attraction for you. It’s a natural tendency for us guys to be obsess over a girl we have a crush on. We hang out with her every day and call her day and night trying hard to create attraction. But what you probably don’t know is that DESPERATELY pursuing a girl or being too available can ruin the attraction you’re trying to create. Yes, when you meet an attractive girl, it becomes hard to NOT think about her. But truth is, when you obsess over a girl or devote 100% of your time and attention to her, you display a very needy and desperate vibe. And if you didn’t know by now, this is one of the quickest ways to lose her. Sure, you’d want to create an attraction. But at the same time, you’d also want to convey to her you have other OPTIONS in life other than pursuing her.

Build a Habit-Robot in your Brain

Did you hear about a book that is designed to put little kids to sleep when parents read it aloud?

The book uses words that act on the subconscious to make kids sleepy. Is that possible, you ask the trained hypnotist writing this post?

Yup.

I don’t know if the author executed the concept well, but the idea is well within the range of things I have seen in person. Kids are highly suggestible.

Luckily we grow out of it. By the time we are adults we can use our powers of reason to fend off the many influences coming at us from all directions. Using all the mental tools of adulthood plus our education and experience, we are able to build a mental fortress around our…

Just kidding. 

We never build a defense. Words reprogram adults just as easily as kids. Donald Trump teaches us that every day. And if you want to take a desk nap, I can put you to sleep just as fast as that book for kids. But I won’t. You have things to do.

We humans think of ourselves as single entities because our bodies make each of us look like one person. I tried to maintain that illusion for most of my life and have finally released it. Now I accept that I am lots of personalities and I cycle through them during the day according to a schedule I do not set. When my body chemistry makes me confident and ambitious, I’m that guy. When my body chemistry goes in another direction, I’m another person for awhile. But those personalities are the average of what is going on in my mind at any time. And thinking of myself as the average of my mind’s competing forces was not useful to me. 

My current model for what I call my “self” is that my mind is like a riot at an insane asylum. Luckily, one of the inmates was wrongly committed. That guy has the job of trying to get the real lunatics under control before the body that supports all of them does something dumb.

In my model, if the other patients are calm, the lone voice of reason can dominate the situation. It knows how to avoid the more dangerous patients and coerce the gullible ones. It makes deals. It builds alliances. It does what it can to assert itself as the only sane voice in a building full of irrational actors. 

But that only works when the other patients are relatively calm. If any of them gets worked up, they are larger than the tiny rational voice and overpower it.

Where some of you see free will in this scenario, I see math. If the crazy players in my head outnumber the rational part of my mind, they win. Sometimes my rational mind uses judo-like tricks to fight above its weight class, but it is still one player in a building full of lunatics. It can’t win them all.

(Yeah, I know this sounds like an animated movie you recently saw. That’s an “anchor” I could not avoid. It just dragged your attention somewhere I don’t want it to go and slowed the flow of my post. See how hypnosis considerations are woven into writing? This is just one example.)

The insane asylum model of the mind has some advantages. In my old mental model, any form of stress felt as if all of me was having a mental problem. Now I see it as one of my fellow patients going on a rampage. I need to sedate him.

So my rational player does what it knows to do. In preparation for future riots that I know are coming, I have moved to habit (via repetition and reward) my exercise routine. If my rational mind needs to activate the habit subroutine, it can do so with a whistle even if it is already under a dog pile of crazy actors. Habits are like robot warriors that the rational part can order into combat. I activate the exercise habit-robot and try to hold off the rioting crazies until…

I go to the gym. Happy chemicals flow into my body. I stab a sedative into the biggest nut on top of me and push him off.

Lesson 1: You can’t exercise-away real problems. But most of what stresses you might not be that big. Exercise is one way to sedate the lunatic on top of you.

Lesson 2: You need a robot army in your brain to help your rational player when the crazy parts of your mind start to riot. You can build your robots as “habits” so you can call upon them when needed. 

Your tiny rational voice might not have the power to overcome a hospital full of lunatics. But your robot army (the habits you engineered) can dispatch them easily.

Get yourself some mental robots by building habits.

I am putting together a reading list for people who are interested in persuasion as a craft. This book on forming habits will be one of the most important ones on the list. Think of it as a way to arm the rational part of your brain to fight off the crazy parts.

And obviously if you want to see more about the Moist Robot view of the world, you need to read my book. That will be on the list too.

In Top Tech Blog, you need a self-driving golf cart because the game can be exhausting if you do a bunch of steering. Who has time for that?

We Should Build A Wall That Keeps Burning Man Attendees From Coming Home

What separates the burning men from the burning boys, is really nothing, because they’re all awful. This is why we should seriously consider Cultivated Wit’s new proposal to raise $ 7.3 billion to build a wall that’d prevent Burning Man attendees from returning home. 

Perhaps it would be too intense to burn not just the Burning Man man, but also burn all the burning men, so a wall seems like a justified response to the annual wildfire that will continue to rage in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert near the California border starting August 30.

Make Smokey Bear proud and prevent this fire from ever happening again. The proposed wall may only appear to save San Francisco. The wall may also put the rest of the country at risk as burning families are forced to move into new neighborhoods outside of the Bay Area. But California is in drought, and we must band together as a nation to help our fellow Americans overcome this crisis. Sometimes you’ve got to fight fire with over seven billion dollars of concrete.

Sore Winners: We Should Acknowledge and Build Upon Our Successes

Over the past two weeks there have been two incidents that have reinforced my belief that many of us in the LGBT community are sore winners. The first was evident in the discussions relating to the future of the movement post-Obergefell that I discussed in my last column, where the national advocacy organizations are continuing to ignore the real, substantive protections already in place. We have federal employment protections, and few acknowledge the win, let alone celebrate it.

The second relates to the incident of the White House heckler, Jennicet Gutiérrez. Jennicet is the woman who interrupted the president 20 seconds into his speech in the East Room of the White House during the annual Pride reception on June 24. Her “heckling” was shouting out to the president, “I am a trans woman! … No more deportations!”

The president, after Jennicet wouldn’t stand down, responded, “Listen, you’re in my house. … Shame on you. You shouldn’t be doing this. … You know, my attitude is: If you’re eating the hors d’oeuvres — you know what I’m saying? — and drinking the booze….”

This incident then blew up, as things do today, over Twitter and beyond, as the usual activist rift was once again on full display. There was the debate between the insiders and outsiders — the insiders who felt that a reception with the president of the United States demands respectful behavior, and the outsiders who believe that it’s always a ripe opportunity to press the cause with direct action, even in the East Room of the White House. There were those who felt that “there is a time and a place,” and that this was neither, versus those who felt that the cause is so important that no risk is not worth taking.

There was also a secondary conflict, between those who eventually took to booing Jennicet when she wouldn’t stop (and it should be noted that she began within 20 seconds of the start of the president’s speech and continued for two minutes) and those who felt that since she’s a trans Latina and the room was full of predominantly white gay men, this was clearly an act of transphobia and racism. Of course, the latter is usually the case for some people of a Bolshevik mindset, who condemn an entire class of people by virtue of their class, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or ethnicity/race.

The wheels came off, and a rational debate became impossible. My opinion was, and still is, that there really is a time and a place, which may include a White House Pride reception, but in this case there was a way to accomplish the goal without alienating the rather influential person you’re trying to persuade. My sense after watching all the videos is that the crowd was neither transphobic nor anti-Hispanic and was driven to their response by Jennicet’s refusal to stop after she had made her point.

I’m also just as uncomfortable with shaming the crowd as I am with shaming her for speaking out. Janet Mock tweeted that the booing reminded her of Sylvia Rivera’s experience in 1969. Except that Sylvia Rivera spoke out against the gay community in New York in 1973 when they wouldn’t let her (or many lesbians, for that matter) take to the stage during the Pride festivities. The greatest president the LGBT community will probably ever know is not the equivalent of the New York gay community of the early ’70s. And the great lesbian activist and agent of social change, Urvashi Vaid, then the Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, interrupting President Bush in 1989 during his only speech about the AIDS crisis, which he and his predecessor, Ronald Reagan, had refused to confront, is not the same as heckling President Obama.

I’m not the only one willing to say so. Trans Latina Amada Briseno, who was also at the White House, agrees. She also spoke out, but in a positive manner, and the president responded that hers was the kind of heckling he can always accept.

Evidence matters to me. Jennicet wrote:

I was fortunate to be invited to the White House to listen to President Obama’s speech recognizing the LGBTQ community and the progress being made. But while he spoke of ‘trans women of color being targeted,’ his administration holds LGBTQ and trans immigrants in detention. I spoke out because our issues and struggles can no longer be ignored.

Jennicet claimed that her outburst was spontaneous, yet she launched into it before the President got warmed up. She couldn’t have been responding to the president’s words, including his acknowledgment that “transgender women of color are particularly vulnerable,” because he had barely gotten to “hello.”

More importantly, she claimed that she was planning on writing a letter to the president but only decided to speak out when the president didn’t address trans detention issues. As I noted above, she didn’t let him speak, so she couldn’t know. She also said she was invited to the reception by the White House, but she was actually the plus-one of Angela Peoples, GetEqual’s co-director. GetEqual is rightly known for its guerrilla tactics, and Jennicet’s actions fit the mold.

Angela Peoples told MTV News:

Jennicet, who is a trans woman of color, wanted to use [the White House Pride reception] as an opportunity to bring the message of stopping the detention and torture of trans women in immigration facilities to the president. I was so, so proud of her for what she did.

According to a statement from Not1More:

As a transgender woman who is undocumented, Gutiérrez said she could not celebrate while some 75 transgender detainees were still being exposed to assault and abuse in ICE custody at this very moment.

Angela has since confirmed to me that this was indeed a GetEqual action, but they chose not to announce that, allowing Jennicet to speak out and be the face of the action. I have great respect for GetEqual, but that doesn’t get to my fundamental problem with this incident.

Jennicet had been active for seven months in working to stop the deportations. She was working with GetEqual. GetEqual knew that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was working on the problems with detention, because the LGBT community, along with allies in the immigration reform community, had been working on this issue for years. They knew that there was a positive new memo on the issue dated June 19, five days before the Pride reception. And Secretary Johnson of the Department of Homeland Security released a new policy on June 24, before the Pride reception, to speed up the release of all immigrants in detention, another of Jennicet’s concerns.

What this tells me is that the activists who are doing the hard, arduous work of
influencing the administration and moving the bureaucracy, often for little pay and recognition, are actually winning this fight for us. And there are some who are willing to ignore the ongoing progress that is occurring to grandstand for personal reasons. People who don’t know the facts will credit Jennicet’s actions with bringing about this recent change, when that is not the case at all. I’m told that Jennicet repeated her performance two days later at the Stonewall Inn during the New York Pride festivities.

Change never comes quickly enough. As Angela Peoples said, “there’s no ‘right time and place’ to demand basic human dignity.” But there’s a difference between simply making a statement, which may or may not work but is guaranteed to offend many allies, including the most important one of all, the guy at the top, and acting smartly with full knowledge of context and consequences. Angela explained that GetEqual’s goal mirrors that of Not1More, which is to end all detention of queer people — because detention is wrong in general, and because queer people in detention are at risk of grievous bodily harm.

I agree with that goal. However, we need to put that goal in context and not blindside those who are committed to helping the community or offend the ones with the power to help us reach our ultimate goal.

We just don’t seem to know how to win gracefully.

Chris Christie Launches Bid to Become New President of FIFA, Citing Ability to Build Bridges

2015-06-03-1433346583-1567787-christieresized2.jpg

Photographer: Luigi Novi

In a dramatic week for world football, Sepp Blatter, the President of FIFA, gave himself a red card and announced his resignation, and Chris Christie declared his goal of replacing him.

At a hastily arranged news conference in a Dunkin Donuts, Governor Christie said:

“I have always believed that I would make a great President, so for the benefit of the people of New Jersey, America and the world, I will be formally announcing my candidacy for the Presidency of FIFA as soon as I’m done eating. “

As reporters collectively choked on their frosted maple crèmes, Christie continued:

“I have to tell you guys that I would be the perfect person to replace Blatter.

I appreciate that a deep knowledge of football is essential for this job, and I have it! I’ve been watching the Cowboys, the Giants and the Eagles my entire life and I will bring all that know-how to the table for the benefit of American football fans throughout the world.

I also hear that running FIFA is like running the mafia. That’s awesome because I’m the Governor of New Jersey for Christ sakes, so enough said about my qualifications in that regard.

Additionally, I know that the new head of FIFA must have a lot of experience dealing with the US Department of Justice in ongoing criminal investigations. Well, guess what? I’ve been doing that for well over a year now!

Most importantly, I believe FIFA really needs someone to build all the bridges that have been burnt during this entire fiasco. And as I’m sure you will agree, whenever anyone thinks of bridges nowadays, they immediately think of me!”

After his announcement, Christie did not immediately respond to questions from reporters, citing an urgent need to finish his doughnut.

In further developments, other republican FIFA presidential hopefuls also declared their candidacies, notably Rick Perry, Scott Walker and Sarah Palin — the latter of whom called the decision to give the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, “the worst supreme court ruling since Roe v. Wade.”

No matter who else throws their hat into the ring, Christie is likely be the most appealing candidate to FIFA sponsors such as McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy’s, Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken — particularly given his extraordinary rates of consumption.

However, when contacted for comment, Irma Crook, one of the few remaining executives at FIFA, said: “Chris Christie wants to become the new President of FIFA? Oh my God, quick! Let’s get Sepp Blatter back!”

Quadruple Amputee Veteran To Build Fully Accessible Retreat Home For Wounded Vets

Travis Mills is at it again.

The retired staff sergeant and quadruple amputee announced last week that his organization — the Travis Mills Foundation — purchased the Maine Chance Lodge in Rome, Maine, and plans to convert it into a retreat for veterans with disabilities and their families, WCSH 6 News reported.

The Travis Mills Foundation Retreat (TMF), which will be able to accommodate up to 10 families at a time, allows for veterans with disabilities to “recover, relax and enjoy a wide range of adaptive sports and activities” — like kayaking, fishing and swimming — Mills told the outlet, helping them heal physically and emotionally.

“We just really want to give back to the veterans,” Mills said. “I was given such good fortune from everybody around the nation giving back. Kelsey and I, my wife, wanted to start a foundation, and what better way to give back to ours that served … this is how we’re going to do it.”

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help fund renovations for TMF, which will be a fully accessible “smart-home” space for wounded veterans and their families in the U.S., according to WCSH 6.

So far, more than $ 157,000 of the group’s $ 1.7 million goal has been raised.

Mills — who is one of just five quadruple amputee veterans — has made a name for himself helping others who’ve been injured while serving. A documentary, “Travis: A Soldier’s Story,” premiered in 2013 and continues to screen across the country, telling the story of how he, Kelsey and their daughter moved on after he was critically injured from an IED in Afghanistan in 2012.

“If I’m giving up,” Mills said in the film. “I’m giving up on my family.”

Mills has been a positive force for wounded veterans for years. Dubbed the “mayor” of Walter Reed Medical Center while recovering from his injuries there, Mills could be spotted visiting other patients, spreading encouragement to those who needed it most.

In 2013, a physical therapist at the hospital told Fox News that Mills “walks in [to patients’ rooms] with his four prosthetics on, a smile on his face and says, ‘You’re going to be OK.’

First Freedom Tower Stair Race To Help Build 200 Homes For Vets With Disabilities

NEW YORK (AP) — The first stair-climb race at One World Trade Center — the nation’s tallest building — will raise money for military veterans struggling with combat-linked disabilities, two foundations formed after the 9/11 attacks announced Monday.

Officials of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the Captain Billy Burke Foundation detailed plans for the athletic event at Burke’s firehouse, Engine Company 21 in midtown Manhattan. Burke lost his life on 9/11 along with Firefighter Stephen Siller from Squad 1 in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Proceeds from the May 17 tower climb will support service members who’ve been catastrophically injured in war and help educate children who’ve lost a parent. The money also will help build 200 new homes for veterans with the worst disabilities, mostly triple or quadruple amputees. About 40 houses have been completed.

On Sept. 11, 2001, Siller was off-duty when he ran with over 60 pounds of gear through the blocked-off Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the World Trade Center. “Our foundation couldn’t be more honored to be chosen to hold the first stair-climb event at One World Trade Center,” said his brother Frank Siller, foundation chairman and CEO.

There’s also a “virtual stair climb” — using elevators — for people who want to participate but are unable to handle the stairs.

Participation is limited to the first 1,000 people who register by May 10. They’ll all wear computerized chips that will record their finish time. The entry fee is $ 100, and there’s a $ 250 minimum fundraising requirement.

Sept. 11 first responders will lead the way into the building for the climb, which is to the 90th floor — 180 flights of stairs — of the 104-story building.

Burke led firefighters on the day two terrorist-hijacked planes pierced the twin towers.

His brother, Michael Burke, said Monday that even though Billy knew that the south tower had already fallen, he chose to remain behind to rescue two workers, one in a wheelchair.

When the captain was urged to leave, he responded, “‘this is my job, this is who I am.’ Then he went on and the tower collapsed,” said Burke, who stopped talking several times, his voice breaking.

“What he did that day should be inspiration for us to keep going,” the foundation board member said.

In May, as climbers reach the higher floors and their knees and backs “are killing them,” he said, “just think of the words of Captain William Burke to his men: ‘keep going, I’m right behind you.'”
