The Chinaman’s Calf

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 28, 2010

Hat tip to Andy, The Asian of Reason, for pointing this out. It’s something that I’ve noticed also, but have not thought about much until I saw someone else noticed it too.

Athletic Asians have huge calf muscles. This perplexed me deeply. Why is that?

I think I’ve arrived at an answer, and it explains why athletic asians still can’t jump when they get to the NBA.

Calf muscles are used for balance in walking and jogging, not jumping. They push your body forward more than up. That’s why I always laugh at guys trying to improve their vert by doing calf raises. Gotta do your squats, kiddo. Most of the energy for jumping comes from the butt and lower back.

If you’ve ever gone running on the beach barefoot, you know how much your calves hurt afterward.  This is because the sand is not firm, and your calf muscles have to work harder to balance and push you forward. What other environment is one that gives way to your feet, and probably would give your calves a good workout?

Rice paddies.

Mystery solved.

The 1-10 Scale

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 27, 2010

I’ll admit that a simple concept such at the HB1-10 scale can confuse me when I read about it online. What exactly is the difference between a 9 and a 10 to most people? Pure personal preference? Well, I have my own guide that I use on women. Being the generous guy that I am, I’d like to share it with you all.

Planet Grok’s HB Scale

1 – So ugly, just looking at her makes you want to puke. You’re not even sure “her” is the right word to use. You do whatever you can to avoid having your brain polluted by the hideous filth.

2 – Very ugly. Fascinatingly ugly. So ugly that you can’t help but stare, as if a passer-by witnessing a genetic accident. You thank your lucky genes that you weren’t born that way.

3 – Unattractive, but the average person can stand to look at her and hold a conversation with her. Often obese, with bad hair or teeth.

4 – Homely. The kind of girl that you would feel icky touching. Many chubbies fall into this category. They are often visited by men “slumming it” at night, and can be promiscuous because they have a hard time finding a man who wants to be seen in public with them. Often have pot bellies and unclear skin.

5 – Plain old average and forgettable. Does not inspire feelings of revulsion per se, but you do not feel the need to pursue sex with these women. But if it happens, it happens. Not fat or chubby, but maybe a little cellulite.

6 – Will have a single cute feature that makes them stand out from average women. It could be a small, delicate little nose or nice tits/ass. Other than the one cute feature, these women are average. They may enter the fantasizing male mind once or twice after an indroduction.

7 – These women have entered the realm of “attractive”. You feel confident being with them in public, but they are not hot enough to brag about to all your friends. These women get checked out by men often. Their bodies are not a turn-off by any means, but they may deviate some from the ideal, causing a double take. For example, the waist-hip ratio may be something strange, the shoulders a bit too wide, or the legs a bit too short.

8-Men who are not skilled with may brag about landing these women. Universally called “pretty”, these women intimidate many betas with their attractiveness. Upon close inspection, they may have a couple small flaws that they are able to hide well with makeup/clothing/hairstyle.

9 – A beautiful woman. Only one minor flaw in her entire essence. The flaw is cute and minor, and can provide a kind of uniqueness to her. So fine that most men would leave their wives for her.

10 – Absolutely flawless in every regard, including personality.  Totally stunning. Able to get whatever and whoever she wants based on her beauty. She looks like she stepped out of an artist’s imagination, or heaven…or God’s imagination. Jaws drop and tongues roll out wherever she goes, creating the impression of walking on rose petals wherever she goes. Rush Limbaugh would donate 20 million to Haiti relief in order to have sex with her. Obama would put up a border fence for her. A true 10 is one in a billion, and able to cause fainting in grown men with the touch of a hand.

Stop the presses. There’s nobody out there like that, you fucking beta. I love how often nobody wants to admit that a chick is a 10, just to try to show they have some kind of “higher standard” than the next dude. Megan Fox is a 10. Scarlett Johansson is a 10. Halle Berry is a 10. Beauty pageant winners are often 10s. There’s plenty of 10s.

11-This is a 10 that you think looks better than another 10 someone else has named. No more no less. It’s just a matter of opinion.

My Armchair Theory on Sociopathy

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 26, 2010

Sociopaths and psychopaths (antisocial personality ‘disorder’ -according to the establishment) get a bad rap. In pop culture, these terms are often used interchangeably with anything evil or twisted*, such as sadism. This is not fair – most sociopaths are not evil people and do not have ill intent toward anyone. Up to 4 percent of people are sociopaths. Why is this?

My theory is that the sociopathic niche evolved back in the time when we were all hunter-gatherers, living in small tribes of 25-50 people, like many small Amazonian tribes today. Sociopaths were the natural leaders of these tribes, willing to make hard decisions for the greater good.

In the massive industrial human societies modern man inhabits, these people fulfill their niche as businessmen, politicians, and 4chan. A downside of the development of these human super-hives is that there is a surplus of sociopaths – we no longer need one out of every 25 people to lack a conscience. Frequently these surplus sociopaths, frustrated that their instincts do not allow them to be fully accepted into the cooperative super-hive, find less than productive habitats to exist in.

Often, sociopaths who were not able to climb the social ladder ended up incarcerated and removed from the breeding pool. High percentages of sociopaths in newly industrialized societies meant that draconian laws had to be established in order to maintain harmony. Monogamy also helped, for sociopaths found it difficult to be as successful in a cooperative marriage as normals. Thus, over generations, those people groups in civilized societies were able to reduce – but not remove- their sociopathic percentage. When people groups who have a shorter history of civilization enter the civilized world, they have not had the eugenic cleansing of the sociopathic element, so there is again a sociopathic surplus that  takes generations to reach a healthy equilibrium – especially when the draconian laws necessary to reduce prior sociopathic surpluses are no longer in place.

I want to emphasize again that sociopaths are no more innately “evil” than normal people. They are just at higher risk for evil activity because they lack normal inhibitions. I do consider myself somewhere on the sociopathic spectrum as well. I’m not entirely devoid of empathy, I just do not have a normal dose, I don’t think. I’d say they number of people I have ever felt anything for can be counted on one hand. My family members crying over Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents who died always seemed strange and alien to me. I am not sure I will even feel anything when my parents pass away. Does this mean I should be ferreted out, publicly branded and shamed, as many psychologists have urged? I would hope not – I do not have any ill intent. It can be odd walking around, knowing that what goes on inside your head is nothing like what goes on inside most people’s heads. But I think I’m glad that I’m mostly free from the burden of managing a complex web of emotional attachment. Oddly enough, one gaping hole in my general sociopathy is in the romantic arena. I learned at age 16 that I’d better patch that hole if I wanted to prevent disaster down the road.

*as long as it is a white sociopathic criminal being portrayed. NAM criminals often get the sympathy treatment.

Institutional Racism Might Exist- But Against Whom?

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 25, 2010

I’m going to succumb to my own law for a brief time. It is often claimed by academics that racism permeates our very existence, with the aggregate affect being that minority performance and IQ’s are lowered through mystical “stereotype threats” and other such nebulous, hard-to-quantify spooky actions at a distance.

I’ll admit I drank the Kool-aide too, for a time. But then I realized something: Whenever I saw a white person acting poorly (cussing, dirty, loud, aggressive etc) I had no problem instantly pegging that person as an incorrigible idiot and a cretin of the lowest order. But when I saw a black person acting the very same way, I would instantly make up excuses for him, like “I’m sure he has had a hard life” or “If only he had been raised better”.

The academics were wrong. I was not internalizing racism toward blacks. I was internalizing affirmative action toward them.

In other words, society had conditioned me to mentally discriminate against my own ethnicity.

Not any longer.

Women like ass, too

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 24, 2010

That’s right, as much time as we spend looking at women’s derrieres, we can forget that they look at our asses too. When an appropriate specimen passes by, we men mentally simulate the impact-absorbtion capabilities of the ass in question. Females do the same, but they fantasize about the male ass’s thrusting power (this simulation often occurs only in the hindbrain, so they may not be conscious of this). In light of this, I have found that developing a round, muscular ass has increased my sexual appeal significantly.

If you are not black, with little in the way of exercise you are prone to developing “nassatau” syndrome. This is basically when your buttocks atrophies away, and your lower back seamlessly integrates with your hamstrings. Women of any race do not find this appealing.

The best way to grow and maintain a muscular ass is with a steady diet of squats. But not just any squats will do. You need to do them right.

1 Most importantly, don the weight belt and fasten it tight. You are not too tough for one. Not only will you plateau without a belt, but you will definitely injure yourself if you insist on doing heavy squats without one. This is a lesson I learned the hard way.

2 Use a bench or other device to accurately assess (har!) how far down you go with each repetition. You should be, at a minimum, making your thighs perpendicular to the wall. Do not try to guess it by looking in a mirror. Set up a weight bench right behind you to the appropriate height and tap it with your butt on each repetition. What always happens without an objective measurement of squat depth is that over time, as you add weight, you will slowly but surely squat higher and higher untill you are barely bending your knees. Once you realize it, it will be too late and you will have to start over. Your body wants to cheat, don’t let it. Position your feet directly down from your shoulders, and

3. Close your sphincter. tight. Now lift. Repeat 5-8 times, and increase the weight when you can. Supplement with the leg press.

Get out there now and work that ass out 2-3 times per week. Enjoy all the new IOI’s you weren’t getting before. It’s worth it.

Trying out some new themes

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 24, 2010

Please excuse any issues in the meantime.


Ok, any complaints with this one? A lot of folks did not like the white on black text previously.


Picky crowd here. I did like how the last theme had the “recent comments” widget, but it was rather busy as OneSTDV pointed out. I also didn’t like how comments were pushed to the right. Let’s try the simple grey and black. There doesn’t seem to be much to complain about with this one to me, but if there is a problem I’m sure One Moniker will let me know.

Planet Grok’s Law of HBD Blogs

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 23, 2010

OneSTDV has a new post up in which, inspired by Sailer’s Law of Female Journalism, he christens his own rule,

OneSTDV’s Law of Black Intellectualism:

An inordinate share of almost any black intellectual’s work will pertain to black racial issues.

Seems spot on to me. But in the comments that follow, he takes some heat from a few sensitive fellows for including Thomas Sowell in his list of those who evince his rule. I don’t think that is fair. Sowell’s most cited works are those that deal with blacks, and 25% of his intellectual output being devoted to the well-documented shortcomings and pathologies of American blacks seems to me a bit much.

What I want to know is when will we get a Dr. Miles Dyson. The movies keep promising us this event but it never seems to get here. That is a shame, because unlike some bloggers who frequent the HBD-o-sphere, I rather like the black people I encounter. It makes me sad when I am disappointed.

I am saddened frequently.

This brings me to my own contribution to the ever expanding body of blog physics, the…

*drumroll please*

Planet Grok’s Law of HBD Blogs

On any HBD blog, an inordinate amount of time will be spent discussing black people.

I feel it is necessary to codify this law for progeny, because the most salient issue that HBD truth impacts does not have to do with black people.

Hello, immigration?

Our country has done just fine with its small, stable black minority. While HBD may address the finer details of education policy (something I will post on soon), let’s be honest, affirmative action for blacks is just not affecting the United States that much. Yet it seems that the comment thread of every single HBD blog entry seems to come back around to blacks, even if the topic of the post has nothing to do with them, or even anything to do with HBD!

So what is affecting the United States? The masive influx of low-IQ peasants from mexico, who breed like rabbits. That is an issue that will be felt like an asteroid collision 10 to 20 years from now, as our national average IQ drops to the upper 80s.

But HBD-o-sphere prefers to harp on blacks, a people that we unfairly brought here, and have been with us for the whole grand ride to superpower status. Ok. I guess the topic can be fun. But it is of little consequence, in the grand scheme of things.

On Harem-building

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 22, 2010

Obsidian’s recent post criticizing Roissy’s Valentine’s Day advocacy of Multiple Long Term Relationships -a true harem- brought to mind experience I’ve had doing just that.

I didn’t even have to lie, as Roissy encourages.

All you have to do is establish relationships with married/involved women. It is easier to do this than build an elaborate mountain of lies to keep girlfriends with too much time on their hands from finding out about each other, and it forces the females do the lying for you. I’ve discovered that married women are most vulnerable several months after the birth of a child, or any time in the first 3 years of life of their second child. It is at these times that they are frustrated by their husband’s withdrawal, and fantasize about either moving up to a better provider beta or getting out of the house for once to have some fun.

Working moms are very vulnerable to affairs, but if you are not confident enough to hit on these women publicly, there’s always Ashley Madison.

A key benefit of boinking married chicks is that you, the shrewd gamer, can replicate your genetic potential with significantly reduced risk of having to fork out child support. The cuckolded beta will take the hit.

The downside is that husbands can get downright nasty if you get caught. I had to change my number and ante up my moving date because of threats from one. But even in these cases, the shamed wife will get the brunt of the anger. Just don’t deliberately inflame the situation, and you’ll be fine. Tell the guy to read up on his Roissy. He’ll thank you in a couple months.

I also do not think this would work well for men who are below-average in looks. You want to at least look better than the other guy.

Denise Romano – Quixotic Queen of Quackiness

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 21, 2010

Anyone who has read my neophyte blog, or just my previous post,  knows that I have skepticism of what is known as “Game”, and furthermore, skepticism of self proclaimed “PUA’s”. I would now like to take this time to defend Game and the PUA industry from attack, because a lot more than the future of PUA’s is at stake if this crazed,  irrational assault perpetrated by Denise Romano is allowed to gain traction.

Who is Denise Romano?

Denise Romano is a woman who has been trolling Game and MRA blogs of late, most notably by allying herself with blogger  “Lady Raine” (real name: Wendy Schwartz) of “Roissy in DC” notoriety. The crux of her latest crusade is to make “game” illegal by classifying it as coercion or Hate Speech (crimethought) under the law, and thus making men who “game” women into having sex guilty of rape and prosecutable by law.  This sounds absurd, and it is. Unfortunately, thanks to the way laws are worded in our feminized society, her activism seems to be gaining ground. She has stated that she will not stop until she sees people who use game to have sex with women prosecuted, and any business which teaches game (she calls these business “Rape Schools”) to be shut down.

Denise Romano wants the law to control your minds and your everyday actions. She wants to deprive men of developing the social skills required to enjoy romantic relationships, and she advocates a position which reduces women to unthinking animals, unable to resist succumbing to the arousal tactics taught by Game. She is an enemy of freedom and free will in the truest sense, and she needs to be stopped. We must all do our part, because we can not let this kind of precedent be set.

It has come to my attention that Denise is having a book published soon by McGraw-Hill, a major publisher. It would be wise for the denizens of the “game”-o-sphere, and any other freedom loving individual, to provide feedback on the quality of Denise Romano’s writing at the various outlets it is sold. I have provided the following links to where her book is sold at the following online stores:

Barnes and Noble


Please take a few minutes of your time to review Denise Romano’s material. I do not think comments are open yet in Amazon, so mark your calendars. Also,  I shouldn’t need to say this, but read the review policies and write your reviews intelligently so that there is no room for deletion. Thanks.

Mystery not so Alpha

Posted by PlanetGrok on February 20, 2010

This picture illustrates why I remain skeptical about the significance of game:

So there are people who pay money to look like these clowns? These are the top PUA’s around?

Thanks, but no thanks. Basic knowledge of evo-psych and normal social skills will get you laid. These guys are going to ecstasy fueled raves and banging sluts. Not too hard to do.

Mystery displays some serious underclass behavior in this picture by giving viewers of the photo a middle finger. I’ve seen lots of NAMs and WT do this on their social networking pages. I guess being  “Alpha” really is all about devolution to some.
