Here is another text I previously published in an unrelated place. This text is written for teenagers and young adults. Apparently this text scares the shit out of permadolescents! I write this from 20 years of experience in observing and talking with men.

This is my own blueprint for mentoring (or reforming as the case may be) and it has worked exceedingly well. Once you HAVE these for yourself you can take it to the next level in your own way.

The 3 pillars of Manhood

Originally published on May 28th, 2008. Updated for clarity.

I tend to evaluate all men based on three qualities. It took me a while to recognize, categorize and name them. For the past few years I have taught them. These qualities are not available in stores and they require effort and practice!

Most guys wait into their twenties before working on this. Don’t let another day go by without considering how cool it would be to reach manhood earlier than most guys. Today’s marketers of distractions count on the teen boy market to thrive therefore it is in their best interest to make sure you remain a teenager until you are 35.

Adolescence is a golden period where you can be sold anything and everything that should be free for the taking including fun and sex. The worst thing that could happen to marketers of distractions is for you to wake up and build a set of qualities and a character that freely attract attention, sex and life enjoyment to yourself without the need for expensive material accessories.

Sex is free but they get you on the accessories!

The three pillars of characters have been defined as follows by Miss Eva Vavoom, observer and reformer of young men.

  • Yumminess (Yum!),
  • Blow Job Worthiness (BJW),
  • Mad Skillz (MSz)

Yumminess is attractiveness as it is conveyed by yourself alone and not your car or clothes or any other artifice. Yumminess is best conveyed through self exploration, acceptance, confidence and a sincere disposition. To be yummy you should know who you are, have confidence in yourself and be real. You should protect your body from the ravages of cigarettes, alcohol and drugs and avoid public drunkenness or being photographed or videotaped doing unattractive things. You should never engage in victimizing others or putting them down through intimidation, bullying or violence be it verbal, written or physical. Taking a stance on this and letting it be known to others will help you build a huge set of brass balls and eventually net you much power in the world of adults. Become the one who is chased and devise your own set of eccentric rules from which you will choose mates and friends carefully. Reject the external yardsticks of success, you can do much better than that.

Blow Job Worthiness is a state best achieved by giving back to the community and the ones you love. Being keen, helpful and caring towards others is key to achieving this state of being. For years men have stepped on co-workers, gotten into publicly humiliating scandals and stolen for others in order to get the materials trappings that will hopefully net them the coveted blow job (or anything sexual.) Your goal is to place yourself in a position where you deserve a blow job from everyone eliminating the problems that come along with being so desperate for attention that you jump into bed with anybody that comes along. One thing is for sure is that BJW cannot be sold or bought with money but is available for free to anyone who understands the concept and applies the rules.

So if I ever tell you you are blow job worthy, I am really saying…


Napoleon Dynamite: Well, nobody’s going to go out with *me*!
Pedro: Have you asked anybody yet?
Napoleon Dynamite: No, but who would? I don’t even have any good skills.
Pedro: What do you mean?
Napoleon Dynamite: You know, like nunchuku skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills… Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills.
Pedro: Aren’t you pretty good at drawing, like animals and warriors and stuff?
Napoleon Dynamite: Yes… probably the best that I know of.
Pedro: Just draw a picture of the girl you want to take out… and give it to her for like a gift or something.
Napoleon Dynamite: That’s a pretty good idea.

Mad skillz are usually acquired while following a passion. Whether you are great at piano, fixing things or are especially knowledgeable in science your mad skillz are a demonstration that you have enough ability and patience to pursue an idea into reality. Having skillz is a way of showing people that you are bright, self-directed and do not need the nagging of other to do things. One of the great evangelists of Mad Skillz is Timothy Ferriss, the guy who wrote the 4-hour-workweek book. He says that most skills, however complicated, can be developed over the course of a few dedicated month. Using this he has developed ultimate fighting skills, language skills and latin dancing skills that have net him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. Now most adults work 40 hours a week leaving little time to develop mad skillz. As a teen, you have massive amounts of free time which you may already be using on distractions and entertainment. Now is your golden time to develop these skillz, so don’t waste it!

Work on these pillars and you will reach adulthood on your own terms.

Few of these ideas require money or the approval of your parents, just a very judicious use of your precious time as a teenager.

If I could harness the idle time of American teenagers between the ages of 13 and 23, I could certainly rule the World!

Remember, there is no external yardstick for success in these goals and any effort you make nets you a gain in your everyday life.
