Manly Strength

January 10th, 2008

In high school, my friend and I stumbled across a phenomenon that I have never seen sufficiently explained in academic journals: Manly Strength.

We realized that, even though neither of our dads exercised in the least, they could probably still take us out in a fight. They didn’t look strong, and they had no reason to be strong, but nonetheless they had some sort of mysterious muscles under their skin which could be brought into play if, for example, you were being a jerk in public and they wanted to pull you out of a store.

We posited that this strength came from being a dad. Fatherhood was the key to Manly Strength.

I looked forward to this happening when I had a kid.

However, not only did my wife’s pregnancy not lead to me wanting pickles with ice cream, but almost two years after my kid’s birth, I’m still as weak as ever.

However, I have noticed that my wife, who complained bitterly about how heavy our kid was back when he weighed 4 kg, doesn’t complain much about his weight now, despite him reaching 13 kg. So I’m going to have to revise my thesis to be: the strength isn’t automatic, but comes due to carrying around your kid. Sure, that’s common sense (carry 14 kg around every day and you’re going to get stronger), but the secret of Manly Strength is that it doesn’t go a Sumycin 500 mg – 30 Tabs $105.

So, if the current hypothesis, that Manly Strength gained from carrying kids never wanes, is correct, I’m planning on carrying my kid until he’s old enough to have his own kid. I’ll be the strongest grandpa in town.

    Hmmm… My father has also always been much stronger then him, I figured it was his heavier bone structure and being 100% peasant blood as opposed to my wishy-wash half blue half peasant and half petty bourgeoisie… But maybe its an overall trend of humans loosing physical strength as its no longer evolutionarily useful?!

    I think it’s psychological. The first part about getting stong from lifting your increasingly heavy kid everyday is correct. And some of that strength remains (but fades) as the kid (and the dad) gets older. By the time that the kid gets into high school, that feeling of dad being strong is still there. It probably helps that dads are also usually more confident (stubburn? wordly?) than their kids. So, even though the kid can see his Dad and think he doesn’t look so strong, psychologically the kid feels that dad could probably kick some ass. Or something like that.

    I dunno. I remember my dad grabbing my arm once, and the man had power. True, you have a powerful grip, too, but that was your hand power. My dad had arm power.

    I think there’s a ratio of dad-power/son’s school grades (or possibly just homework completion).
