Welcome to GUY CODE, the official blog of MTV2's "Guy Code" series and your online destination for all things dude, including—but not limited to—irreverent commentary on sports, hip-hop and ladies. Stay awhile and flex your manhood.
Ten days after becoming the first man to break the sound barrier--you know, without an airplane--when he jumped from near-space, Felix Baumgartnerannounced that he's finished with death-defying stunts. "I am officially retired from the daredevil business now," Baumgartner told United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon during a visit to the international organization.
This is a great example of a man going out on top before he can make an embarrassment (or a gooey splatter) of himself. Baumgartner's 24-mile, 834-mph, Mach 1.24 free-fall--the highest skydive in history, which ended with him sticking the landing--won't be surpassed any time soon. And now he's securing his legacy by refusing to tarnish it.
If Baumgartner doesn't plan a Michael Jordan-esque comeback, he'll join an elite club of guys who had the wisdom to quit while they were still ahead… Read More...
Halloween means different things to a variety of people. For kids, it's a chance to collect a stomachache-inducing amount of candy in a very short period of time. For many teenagers, Halloween means mischief, haunted houses or handing out candy to the kids. And then for 20- and 30-somethings, October 31 signifies an opportunity to dress up for a Halloween party as a barely-clothed kitten, a president or something else topical. The one constant is pumpkin carving and now we've got some pumpkinspiration for you: London Olympics standout Usain Bolt and 12 other major 2012 figures -- athletes, a musician, a comedian, politicians and one of "Guy Code"'s own.
Over the years we've watched the line between cool and nerdy get severely blurred. From the rifle-blasting, Hawaiian shirt-wearing journalism of Hunter S. Thompson to the geeked-out, post game news conferences of the Oklahoma City Thunder, it's becoming more obvious that nerds are not to be pushed around. Below, we've listed seven nerds that could easily be bros if it weren't for their meek body frames and oddball origins. Stick up for these guys when they're being trashed because there's a good chance they've done something dope enough to pass along to your friends.

We're not too sure what to make of this dubstep stuff. Like it or not, though, it is here and folks seem to enjoy it. Maybe it is this generation's punk rock/hip-hop or maybe it's the new disco? Regardless, Skrillex is leading the way. Grammy-nominated and now a commercial success, this guy deserves to be fist-bumped instead of shoved into a locker. Read More...
We know this because Jason Sudeikis' girlfriend Olivia Wilde said so at a party the other day. "We have sex like Kenyan marathon runners," she told Vulture. Which is to say, their sex is smooth, effective, long-lasting and Olympic-caliber. Nice. Just look at the grin on Sudeikis' face. You're damn right. That Wilde is out and about gushing about their bedroom says that she's quite satisfied and proud. So he's not just the guy with a sense of humor that every woman claims to want, but a gifted sex machine too. Good for him.
Wilde had quite a bit more to say about sex and she didn't hold back. For example, she said about a sign it's time to leave a relationship:
"Sometimes your vagina dies. Then you know it's time to go. There's no reason to sacrifice your womanhood and femininity for some sort of weird feeling of responsibility to something that may not be right. I feel like far too many women do that."
She also dropped some possible Girl Code:
"[Men] are not allowed to be the only ones thinking with their genitals. We think with our pu****s."
Fair or foul? Discussion for another post. For now, let's salute Sudeikis's stamina.
Anything Justin Bieber can do Lady Gaga can do too. Last week Justin Bieber puked on stage in Phoenix, Arizona during a performance of his "Out of Town Girl" on the first night of his new Believe tour. If you missed it, Biebs turned his back to the crowd, hands on his knees and let it rip. It was a pretty solid stream that was apparently infused by milk, or at least that's how Bieber played it off -- with an "Anchorman" reference (milk was a bad decision) on his Twitter account.
Only a week later, Lady Gaga also vomited on stage! She did it in Barcelona and thanks to a loyal, shirtless male dancer on stage, turned it into some kind of performance art. It looks like she might have pulled the trigger rather than succumbing to her body's mandate, and it took her a few more tries than Bieber to empty the contents of her stomach. But she didn't leave the stage (from what we read), unlike Bieber who excused himself twice to manage the issue. So who did it better? Apply your own criteria and vote. We suggest proximity of dancers, duration, form, and so on.
In this month's Esquire magazine, Mila Kunis is crowned as the "Sexiest Woman Alive." The 29-year-old actress/Ashton-Kutcher-arm-candy definitely has a number of strong arguments working in her favor. First of all, just look at her posing topless in tight black leather pants. It's hard to vote against her when you're looking at that cover shot. Second, for as hot and successful as she is, she seems to be relatively grounded and have a good sense of humor. After all, she's hung out with Seth MacFarlane for 13 years doing the voice of Meg Griffin--some funny was bound to rub off on her. Third, in "Black Swan," she did arguably the sexiest lesbian love scene performance ever to be recognized by the Academy Awards. Are we starting to convince you yet? Either way, enjoy the video of her Esquire photo shoot below and vote on whether you think Mila Kunis is the Sexiest Woman Alive.
Aside from the obvious, ahem, assets the good Lord blessed our girl Melanie Iglesias with, she's giving Justin Bieber a run for his swag with the help of her fans. Beliebers? They're your target tweeters if you constantly want your Twitter feed filled up with hearts and the word swaggy spelled swaqqy. But Melievers? Now that's something we can get behind (pun possibly intended).
Team Melanie Iglesias--the self-proclaimed #1 fan source for this "Guy Code" expert--is run by Renette and Joecel. These two ladies keep fellow Melievers--or Melanie Iglesias fans who believe in her right to wear a bikini all day, every day, anytime she wants--up-to-date with everything #BigMamaMel, from her appearances and livestreams to hosting trivia contests. (They also campaign for a Melanie and Lisa Ramos spin-off show. We support this. It seems to have worked for Snooki & JWOWW.) We all could use some seriously s-e-x-y pictures of Ms. Iglesias filling up our Twitter feed to break up our boring workday--so what are you waiting for? Head over to @MelanieIgFans and click "follow" for the latest news and updates on one of your favorite "Guy Code" ladies. Join the cult. Become a Meliever.
Skating and video game legend Tony Hawk took a dive with Reddit on Wednesday for an extended IamA question and answer session. Hawk discussed the highlights of his skating career, the evolution and impact of his video game franchise (and the soundtracks), skateboarding culture, his house (with a backyard skatepark) and more. Even at 44, the guy's still going after it: he signed out of the session to try and nail an fs Ollie 270 over an 8-foot channel to switch crooks, then back in forward. Check out the Guy Code Blog breakdown of the Q&A highlights.
What is the proudest moment of your career?
Hawk: Probably landing the first 900. It marked the end of 20+ years of competing, and opened up new doors of opportunity to keep skating and promoting skateboarding in general.
We're not going to tell you not to date Paris Hilton. Sure, there will be a number of long awkward moments when you bump into her numerous "ex-boyfriends" around the Hollywood scene, but she's still hot and you'll have some crazy stories for the rest of your life about the time you dated the crazy Hilton sister. However, if you decide to embrace the challenge, as male model River Viiperi has, you can't go nuts every time Paris flashes her crotch or makes out with some chick at a club. That's just what she does. Asking her to do otherwise would be like asking a slutty tiger not to bang other tigers.
Viiperi is Today's Dumbass because he allegedly punched a dude in the face after Paris sucked face with this guy's girlfriend in the Vegas club XS. If he gets violent every time she does something like this, within a few months he's going to be on death row. Dating crazy girls can be a lot of fun, but you have to know what you're getting into and don't take it seriously.
You know things are going poorly for Ochocinco when the media is back to calling him Chad Johnson. But number eight-five is at it again, doing what he does best: being flashy to distract everyone from his dazzling lack of success. Cut from the Dolphins during pre-season and going through a messy divorce, he decides to buy a $300,000 Lamborghini. Wait, what? We wouldn't do that, we know how to budget when we're broke. Pasta and tuna fish. Besides, we're Ferrari guys. Did Chad make a huge mistake? Or does he have his s*** together way more than everyone thinks? We'll discuss whether he's an idiot or he's awesome for buying that whip, and we want to know what you think.
OK, let's go back over this. Dude's unemployed. He was cut by the Patriots in June and then was cut by the Dolphins in August because of a domestic violence charge. Now he's going through a divorce, and his wife has every right to fleece him. So why the hell is he dropping bank on a flashy car? Does he think that's an asset her lawyers won't get their hands on? Also, it's a rule that whenever a washed up athlete leaves his flashy car with valet parking, the valets take turns pissing in the trunk. Read More...
