    Deadspin should hire him. They like the dick pics.

    Yes, his mix of misogyny/misanthropy would be a great fit at Deadspin.

    Was thinking I'd heard this story before, but the "DISREGARD IT" guy was someone else:

    The line "Permit me to ask another stupid question" before he ham-handedly made the proposition to take the nudes ... made me squirm.

    Guessing this kid wasn't held very accountable by his employers. How does someone get away with this type of behavior for so long? Surprised someone hasn't been sued yet.

    Which might be just the reaction he was trying to get from the ladies.

    Well, it IS kinda difficult to meet women when you're "reporting" from your parents' basement ... :)

    This dude actually used a ploy of wanting to test out a new camera in order to obtain the nudes.
    I've seen some awful attempts to pick up women but that is rich.

    About 15 years ago I worked with a guy who didn't strike anybody as the type to have any success with women. One day he went up to two women in the office - both hot - and told them he had a side job as a product consultant with La Senza (a Canadian Victoria's Secret-type store). He had like 10 pairs of women's underwear and asked the girls to take the underwear home, wear them, then bring them back the next day. Anyway, they said something to the effect of "Go fuck yourself" and went to HR, and the dude was done.

    There was a rumour he insisted they come back unlaundered, but I really want to believe that's not true.
