Very bad tie
I can see why many would choose this tie, when your life's hobby is analyzing things using faulty unscientific presumptions as your foundation you need to affect some sort of outsider, old-school intelligence to make up for your logic deficits.

However, young libertarian idiots need to find a new way to reinvent themselves as rebellious anti-revolutionaries upholding the truth about class structure as told by Austrian nobility, this tie makes them look like creepy Don Knots throwback f***** virgins.

Seriously, you guys need to take up some kind of coat as your signature clothing, some sort of "I'd totally be getting laid if this were my alt-19th century steampunk wunderland where piles upon piles of human corpses produced by the Truly Free Market was both morally fair and economically progressive."

Also, I can bench 2.5x my body weight and if I ever, EVER see one of you idiots (I probably won't since you live in little American whitopias) I will f****** deck you as hard as I can.

 

 

This made my day :D

Losers post comments like that to get attention.  The last thing you want to do, is give them the satisfaction.  Graveyarded.

Ah come on, we can't take ourselves too seriously. Even the vitriolic can be funny.

 

besides I can bench 4x( ! ) my body weight so I'm not worried about him

 

my first reaction to the post was laughter, and I was hoping that was everyone else's reaction too.

 

 It's probably the first bowtie review of its kind :D

The Mises store is not immune to amazonian fever.

That's hilarious! You know, I receive no notifications of those reviews and don't approve them. About once every six months, I dig through the software and see what's going on. Every so often, I delete one, but mostly we figure that all reviews are good.

Hmm... 600/2.5 = 240. Maybe that is reasonable. 600 is about people's genetic limit without steroids, and you usually reach this peak when you are 30 (since it takes so many seasons to build strength). But i doubt this guy is 30, and I doubt he has dedicated a large portion of his life to powerlifting. I mean the odds of him being a semi-pro powerlifter *and* a guy who knows what AE is is pretty low.

More realistic guess is 400: 400/2.5 = 160. And if he's mostly muscle this guy has got to be about 5 feet tall. I work out too and uhh... no 5ft guy is ever going to kick my ass :P I mean they have height classes in martial arts tourneys for a reason. If you have a bigger reach it is just completely unfair.

What's better is the marxist / socialist attacks and 1 star ratings on books being sold that discuss those topics.

From my point of view... those would actually make it more likely for me to buy the book lol

at least there is some truth in this..

"In fact, capitalism made it possible for many persons to survive who wouldn't have otherwise."

Of course it did. It made it possible for capitalists to survive without working, when usually not working leads to death.

False. Any rational person would fear fighting a person who is wearing a bow tie. It also serves as a shield against attacks to the throat.

I usually bench 1.5x my body weight. The bow tie allows me to bench 3.8x my body weight.

Once I wore it and went outside my house and picked up 7 chicks.

If you make fun of my bow tie, I'll punch right through your chest cavity.

5 stars.

Never fear, I have successfully defended the bow-tie with a review of my own.

 

I really can't see how one would NOT want to wear this bow-tie. If you can't get laid with cool stud-wear, then you're doing it wrong. Try taking a bath, and remember us when you're exchanging your money for the water you used when the bill comes.

I went into a bar with this sleek mofo on my fine BAMF of a self; the ladies swarmed-- I don't blame them, I am constructed like a GOD. If you build it, they will come, you know. And oh boy, were they coming. From the plethora of ladies selling their goods, I discriminated until I picked one foxy lady (I didn't mind the opportunity cost of one less lady b, c, etc.).

You Miseians KNOW I lathered my girl in free market juices (statists, you'll understand when you enter our intellectual elite) and rocked her world harder than Atlas Shrugged rocked high school kids. I didn't take the tie off for a second. She wouldn't let me! We did everything from the Albert Jay Nockin Boots to the Lysander Spoon-her.

All because of the tie, man. Its the tie.

Its a very valuable commodity. It is actually what put an end to the buying, selling, and general enslavement of women-- once someone had some free market juices on them, you didn't need to buy them, the ladies would want to buy you!

This always gets me a bit confused. Austrian methodology is "primitive" and ignores the "facts;" and yet, the under-consumptionist doctrine is still taken seriously, even today, when we had a -3% savings rate right before the recession. The times we live in are, weird.

But don't you see? We had a negative savings rate during the boom times! If only we could have moved the savings rate even lower (to, say, -10%), then our economy would really take off!

By the way, we are out of bowties. We are having another one designed, this one recalling a much older style from the 1940s, one more shape. The ends are not squared off but come to a point. It is an EXTREMELY difficult style to find, though it actually looks much much better than the current ones you find in stores. So long as we are doing custom neckware, this is apparently possible. So it is in the design stage now. It should be available in about six weeks. We've ordered about 200 in hopes of medium--high demand. We shall see! I think it will be the only tie in this shape I've seen anywhere.
