Talking about dead people is like singing at the table. About a hundred years ago, someone made up this rule. Why should we suffer because some jerk screwed it up for everyone?
If a guy was bad while he was living, is he suddenly good because he is dead?
Ted Bundy was a serial killer. rapist, pedophile and necrophilia (the act of enjoying the company of a dead corpse or probably doing sick things to it) ever since he first realized his penis could get erect. He killed more than 36 women, that are at least accounted for. He was fried in 1989.
Oh, sorry! I can’t talk about him because he’s dead.
Bernie Madoff is an American fraudster and a former stockbroke and investment adviser. He swindled at least 72 people out of their life savings. Presently, he’s serving a 150 year prison term.
OK! I can talk about him because he’s not dead.
Women have double standards
If you’re married, or have a girl friend, naturally she’ll get pissed off if you talk about another woman you think is attractive.
When I was married to my soul mate (I’m widowed now), I never bragged about other women, at least, other women who I could call and meet if I was an unfaithful husband. I loved my wife too much. And besides, she wouldn’t have killed me. She would have made me wish I was dead.
On the other hand, I bragged about beautiful women who are celebrities all the time. For example, I once said to my wife, “I think Jaclyn Smith is the most beautiful woman ever.” She never got mad at me for this. Like most women, my wife was very smart. She knew that I was just pissing in the wind.
Celebrity women – No threat to your woman
There’s no telling how many women know that their men have a crush on someone like Britney Spears or Kim Kardashian. But that’s OK. Women don’t mind this. However, if you have a crush on one of her friends, she’ll want to castrate you.

- When you graduate high school, and your dad says, “You need to find another place to live.”
- When your dad tells another adult, “If he gives you a hard time, you have my permission to whip his ass like a man.“
- When you start working, and your dad says, “Now that you have your own money, I don’t have to be bothered with you anymore.“
- Finally, when your dad gets mad at you and says, “Now, I’m going to give you a chance to whip my ass!“
Does any of this sound familiar?
Humans vs the Big Cats
Humans are dangerous animals. When they go up against the big cats, they think of it as going against another human who is unarmed. Most people are never unarmed.
Humans are very good at creating weapons to defend themselves – and to kill. They’re also found in groups. A big cat going against a group of people is suicide. Occasionally, one might catch a guy off guard, but not often.
Finally, humans and the big cats kill for different reason. The big cats kill because they are hungry or threatened. People kill for fun.

I’m 18 and my boyfriend (who’s a bit older) took my virginity when we started dating 2 months ago. I asked him if that was a good thing, and he said yeah because no other guy has been there before. Why is that good? Is that like an ego boost or something?
Response from Merjeo:
Taking a girl’s virginity is definitely not an ego boost. On the contrary, this is something that should make the boy feel cheap, embarrassed and humiliated.
There’s only one exception to this. There’s nothing cheap and humiliating about taking a girls virginity if she’s the boy’s newlywed wife. But for this, you’d have to think back to the way things were in the 50’s and part of the 60’s. Most couples don’t do things this way anymore. And the ones who do are very rare.
From an email from a Merjeo Reader who is a woman:
If the woman did not dress slutty, in revealing clothes she would not have been raped. I think most would agree that women are mostly to blame for getting raped.
Response from Merjeo:
Come on, Girl! Where’s the loyalty to your own gender?
First of all, let me ask you, “Were You, or a Friend of Yours Raped?” If so, I don’t want to know about it. But I’ll tell you who is to blame.
Rape is always the man’s fault, point blank, closed issue. Sometimes, it’s also the woman’s fault.
There’s one very simple word in the English language that people have a hard time saying. This word is NO. If the woman dresses slutty, as you put it, I wouldn’t say that she’s asking for it. But, if she flirts with the soon to be rapist, she definitely is asking for it. Of course, she could push the panic button and say NO, but the damage has already been done. In this case, it’s not the fault of only the woman or only the man. Both are at fault.
Say no at the beginning, don’t flirt with a scumbag, and it’s not your fault. If you do flirt, I wouldn’t say you’re getting what you deserve, because rape is always wrong. But you’re not helping your situation.

I’m running out of things to buy.
I already bough a 14 karat gold watch for $7,000, a brand new BMW 328i xDrive for $44,000, a $5,000 gaming computer, a play station 4, and an xbox one. I have over 800 games.
I don’t know what else to waste my money on. I still live in an apartment, but that’s because I have no family. I stopped talking to my parents. I’m thinking about buying maybe a mansion. but I think that’s overkill to live all alone in. What else should I waste my money on? I donate a little bit, maybe a few times a year. but not much. I am a huge money saver. I always was. What should I buy next?
I have the perfect solution for you. The next thing you should buy is some time – with a psychiatrist. I think they charge about $750 for the initial consultation, plus $150 per hour. This will be cheaper and better for you than a $44,000 BMW that you probably will not want anymore after a few months. And who knows, he may cure you, because you have a problem. But don’t take my word for it. I’m not a psychiatrist, but I do have some friends who are.
If the money is still burning in your pocket, I have another suggestion. Give some of your money to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I can’t speak for you, but helping those kids make me feel much better than any material possession, such as a $7,000 gold watch that probably isn’t as good as a $30 Timex.
I can help you spend some money right now. Click on the image and give to St. Jude.
Stop being so damned material. Think about doing some good. Who knows? This may get you speaking to your parents again.
In the days of the Old West, wooden houses were the only houses, assuming the old western movies are accurate.
Europe had wooden houses back in the middle ages. They don’t have them anymore.
Why do the people in the United States think we’re so advanced, while many people still live in wooden houses? Are we going backwards.
By the way, I’m building a new house, and guess what it’s going to be. It’s going to be a log cabin. According to this, I’m behind the times.
From an email from a Merjeo reader:
My girlfriend is kind of a hippy and is a vegetarian. She’s not controlling or anything, but she really hates when I eat meat and gets really judgmental about it. Whenever she sees me eating meat, she starts talking about slaughter house statistics and how cruel it is to eat meat. I don’t really care about the meat, I can give it up if I want, but I don’t want her to think that she can just change everything about me that she doesn’t like.
In the past I used to have a pilot’s license as a hobby, but she dumped me because she said she’s afraid of airplanes and said she was sick of constantly worrying about me dying in a plane crash. She also persuaded me into quitting smoking two years ago. In general I love her and she’s really funny, easy going and pleasant to be around, but the meat and airplane shit bugs me. I’d never tell her what to do. By the way, I’m 27, and she’s 24.
Response from Merjeo:
Wow! I’ve seen quirks before, but this takes the cake. She’s giving you a hard time about two things that have nothing to do with each other. How many more things about you piss her off?
What does she like to do? Observe what she likes, and give her a taste of her own medicine.
If she likes needlepoint, get on her ass about it, and tell her that she could puncture her finger with the needle and get blood poison.
Tell her those vegetables she likes so much have probably been sprayed with insecticide, and could cause an infection.
Better yet, tell her that we all can get cancer by breathing, and she has to stop breathing to stay healthy. No, don’t go that far. But put the shoe on the other foot. This will either get her off your case, or make her paranoid. If she gets paranoid, she won’t be bothered by your habits anymore because she’ll be worried about her own.
Like the pot calling the kettle black
Not many people in America has the right to tell someone “Go back where you came from.”
Almost everyone came from somewhere. The only ones who didn’t come from somewhere else are the Indians. They are the only ones who have to right to say this.
Have you ever heard an Indian tell someone,
“Go back where you came from!”
Uneducated people don’t understand the Republicans
If you ask an uneducated person,
“What do you think of the Republicans?”
he’ll tell you,
“Because they only like the rich?”
That’s not true. They do like the rich, but that’s not the only ones they like. They like people who want to be rich, and will bust their asses to get rich.
Democrats are the ones who don’t like the rich
The people who don’t like the Republicans like the Democrats. The Democrats don’t like the rich. Instead, they want to be rich. They also don’t like people who want to be rich. They like poor people, because it’s the poor people who are making them rich.
