Relationships are about value. A woman's is mostly her reproductive value, so looks, youth, that's about it.

A man's value is in what he has accomplished and or is likely to accomplish, resources, stability, and what females he has access to.

Women want what other women have, that's his credit report, a chubby married guy with an attractive wife will get as much female attention as the charming eligible bachelor, he clearly has value, single guy is unknown

A man and woman get together, they both feel it's an equal trade, or one in their favor, he doesn't think he can do better, she doesn't think she can do better, so they throw a party.

She still is pretty if she maintains her weight/ looks, she still gets attention, as she gets older, her value is lower, but she still gets attention that she mistakes for value, I'll bang anything under 140lbs that smells good, but only 4 chicks have ever met my family. She might start to think she made a mistake with her man.

Now let's get to him. He had a social life, he had a few women to pick from, he went out and did fun things and socialised where women were, he had value here. Now he's a good loyal family man, takes the breadwinner job where there's no women, he's not at the bar, where there's women, he sold his motorcycle and 4wd you get an suv, there are no women after him.

Now he perceives himself as lower value than her, he's needy. Neediness is the number one turn off for women, beefy men are the polar opposite of attractive, it is weak, despicable behavior, all woman can smell it and they will turn against you. Her friends, sisters, mom, co workers, teachers at the kids school, they despise it.

A man going through a divorce or a breakup needs to get his sex appeal back, quick. Haircut, wardrobe, hit the weights, asap.

Here's what happens, she's stirring up drama over being with a low value man. Her friends agree. They all join in on the fun. He runs into them, or calls them and asks them to help him keep his marriage together. They svt nice, but are even more disgusted.

Instead, get back in the game quick. All day long the girls are gossiping about the man being a bitch, then somebody runs into him, or sees a pic online, he's looking good, doing fun things, or got a piece of ass with him, and the story doesn't jive, they've gotten all this info from her, now her story is suspect and she looks like a bitch. Now the entourage is disarmed, or even switches sides, or floats an offer for a booty call.

This takes a lot of the wind out of her sails.

When she calls the cops for whatever reason, whatever perceived wrong, technicality, or false accusations, whatever, attitude is everything.

Most cops are bitches, they got picked on in high school and have a need to exert authority over weaker people. A damsel in distress calls, they get all ampef up to go exert some authority on a weak man, he's going to start squealing that she's a lying bitch and she started it, and generally acting like a weak man, and probably going to violate some minor code and receive punishment. This is going to be used in divorce court that he's dangerous and unstable and "she had to call the cops on him"

So instead, when the cops bang on his door, a well dressed, well groomed, confident man with good posture opens the door, steps outside, closes the door and aka what the problem is, then as if has a harem he's trying to manage, he sighs, as replies, "yeah, that one has been causing me some drama". "We are going through an ugly divorce and she had been making false accusations"
Now the alpha male cops who have showed up to push around a beta male are in the presence of another alpha male, if you play it right, they are on your team now. Don't incriminate yourself, don't say too much, but you can let them know you need to get back to the girl on your couch. "Officer, if you don't mind, would you have your report reflect that I was polite and helpful during our interaction, this thing is gonna get drug thru the courts"

I can't tell you how many police reports I've got where I started out the suspect and she ended up looking like a bitch because of how the officer worded his report.

I know that's long winded, but if it helps one decent man, it's worth it
Fuck bitches, get money, fuck with guys.

That's what I got from all that.

So, no crazier than you would expect. I have been counselling shut the fuck up, stop doing things to keep her happy, get a lawyer, get any agreements in writing with witnesses, and build your samurai.

So far, he hasn't done any of it. She was a really awesome chick until a switch flipped about 2 years ago and she all of a sudden showed a real mean streak with a lot of people. I think there is a brain chemistry issue, but that's not my concern, he just needs to save his ass, and get himself straightened out.

You mentioned red flag and getting the cops involved, so there's enough of a warning that he needs to tread carefully. He needs to read some divorce horror stories so he knows what to watch out for and how to act. I figured out mine had borderline personality disorder, everything made sense, instead of trying to fix the crazy bitch it was like I was a national geographic observer. I had a contingency plan for everything, and once she burned down everything she could, I rebuilt without her.

If he won't engage in a conversation, at least give him a few pointers, he can soak it in on his own time
Shrink4 men.com
Have him look up "divorce rape"
Get him a digital voice recorder
Get his assets protected

And show him the "deke graph"
Men age like wine, women age like milk, if he can get through this chapter without getting arrested or losing his source of income, or losing his mind, he can really enjoy the rest of his life

Kinda think we could salvage the ones already installed with a half-wave rectifier inline to chop off half the waveform so they see half the current and therefore half the brightness, then just add fixtures back in where needed for shadows. Nope budget's spent. Really makes you want to work there.

These have a frosted diffuser so they aren't too bad.

The Deere just broke the rod at the spot it necks down to attach to the piston. I consider that a normal failure for something that has 38,000 hours on it. Now the case on the other hand that fucker popped the barrel off at the base. That thing only has 6000 or so hours. Sad thing is this loader spends 80% of its time loading gravel from piles. The rare time itís not itís loading from the bank in one of our sand pits. It has had a gravy life. Now the bigger loaders that dig into the shots and recycle piles are a whole different ballgame. Those guys take a beating, but they are built to take it.

It always impresses me to watch my 110,000 pounds loaders get a bucket. Those fuckers are so heavy and have so much traction they just drive in and get a 10yd bucket without missing a beat. There is no fighting itís just drive in and out lol. Then you dump the bucket into the breaker and panic when you see that there was a 4í diameter rock in it that you didnít even see or feel lol.

Over running load is hell on cylinders when dumping, most manufacturers recommend installing check orifices to slow the dump down with large buckets on them but dealers rarely do it until there is a failure.

If the bucket truck co operates I can reach the peak of the garage, but lately it does not want to scope out, almost like it hits a pressure switch, then if you can get past the dead spot it works perfectly. But that dead spot is never in the same spot... Just an annoying problem
