Jack Remains Unaffected By Conflict In Georgia

I've been keeping a close eye on the conflict in South Ossetia and Georgia recently, perhaps because I've been spending a lot of time with a girl who hails from Belarus and she has introduced me to a few Russians and Georgians. I don't necessarily feel that strongly about the conflict, but after reading this post over at Roissy's blog today, I have a few thoughts:

1. I'm starting to think that Russian women, or women from countries that were once part of the Soviet Union may not be very trustworthy. Roissy had this to say about it:

"Having dated a number of Russian women and become intimately familiar with their naturally scheming ways, I can speak with a degree of expertise on geopolitical matters that involve Russia as a central player.
First, understand Mother Russia. They’re a country of thugs. Smart, conniving thugs always looking for an edge, but thugs nonetheless. That is why they easily succumb to the siren song of communism (controls their worst instincts), and that is why their women (1) are so fatalistic and (2) respond so well to male dominance and abusive relationships."

2. I attended the Watermelon Festival* yesterday with the girl from Belarus, and I watched her shit-test me with her relentless flirting, then I watched her shift gears and be incredibly warm and loving me with me in front of anyone who was around. Then I ended up hearing later on that evening that she had slept with one of my buddies awhile back (before I knew her) and I started to get the feeling that she is basically a female version of me...tall, flirtatious, unethical, doing whatever it takes to get what she wants.... and frankly, it scares the shit out of me. Of course I refused to even blink at her flirting, or hearing about any of her past encounters, but the fact that I'm now blogging about it clearly means that it affected me.

3. After really looking at the situation closer though, I'm not sure that Roissy's views on Russian women can be applied in this instance. I attribute her flirting as a way to counter-balance my flirting, which she has witnessed first hand (on multiple occasions) when I bartend. I also attribute hearing about her possibly "unsavory" past to the fact that we both live in Richmond Virginia, where it's almost impossible to find a girl or a guy who hasn't slept with someone you know or have met in the past. In a bigger city you generally wouldn't hear much about a girls past lovers, but in Richmond, I'm lucky if I meet a girl who hasn't been railed by at least 3 people I know. Sadly this doesn't even scare me away from a girl anymore.

In conclusion, I don't even know why I'm thinking about this so much. Russia could invade the US with missiles from outerspace and I could be put into a Gulag labor camp, and it still wouldn't alter my insatiable lust for Eastern European women.

* The Watermelon festival sucked. 100,000 people crammed into 7 blocks. Strollers and dogs clogged the streets and people stood around gawking at nothing. The only way I survived was ducking into 4 different bars and a party along Cary St for many many drinks.

This is completely unrelated, but I thought you might laugh.
