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.
The results for our "Guy Code" Season 1 Bracket of Wisdom are in! Melanie Iglesias's Getting Freaky has beat out The Crew's Julian McCullough with 69% of the vote (seriously, that's the real percentage). She's taking home the big prize, or trophy, or whatever we've got lying around the office. We'll give it to her to commemorate this incredible triumph. In a field rich with wisdom, the winning nugget was offered by a hot chick, which is essentially the only way useful advice effectively works on a man. So maybe this result shouldn't be terribly surprising.
What was Ms. Iglesias's winning bit of knowledge? It was this:
"You know you've gone too far when your partner just stops having sex with you."
Well put, Melanie, well put. If that sort of blabber came out of a man's mouth, all we'd hear is a droning hum while we scanned the horizon for something more interesting. Watch Guy Code on MTV2 for more words to live by (sometimes delivered by hot girls). Also, check back with Clutch later this week--we'll have an exclusive clip from the upcoming special "Guy Code Spring Break Survival Guide" airing April 10 at 11 p.m. on MTV2.
According to this chart we found on Reddit, Finland, Sweden and Norway together make up the most metal place on earth. We researched it, then used common sense and Led Zeppelin lyrics to verify.
FACT: The densest population of metal bands comes from the land of the ice and snow, from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow. We're going to do a little rounding here to give you a better idea, but there are roughly 50 metal bands for every 100,000 people in the Nordic/Scandinavian region. If the average metal band consists of four people, that means .002 percent of people who live in Finland are in a metal band, which means for every 500 people, one of them is going to be pretty metal. At least metal enough to be in a band.
FACT: The happiest countries in the world are also the most metal. That's not us making things up, that's according to research done by Forbes. (That's the magazine your dad reads, with all the rich people in it.) Check out the chart below.

Of those top five countries, only an average of 27 percent of the people are suffering. We're guessing it's because those 27 percent are not in a metal band.
Convential wisdom says no--gamers do not get girls. It says they decline most social invitations to stay home, play games, eat Cheetos, talk s*** to 10-to-13-year-old boys on headsets and generally fail to perform normal human activities that would distract them from playing a video game. I'm not a gamer but I've had calls ignored by some for weeks at a time after the release of a new must-have title.
That's my image (read: stereotype) of a gamer. But that's a pretty raw generalization. It's also not necessarily true that gamers don't get girls. The narrower question posed by the infographic is, how does online gaming stack up against online dating? In reaching a conclusion, the chart points to a number of figures highlighting that the online gaming world is populated by women who have a tendency to become attracted to fellow gamers, many of them who travel long distances to meet a lover. This doesn't mean that a lot of gamer guys get girls. Absolutely, unequivocally: no. It just means that some do, and do it by meeting chicks while playing online. Now that's called a win-win.
The purpose of this exercise is not to point that for the majority of his movie career, Jonah Hill has been fat. We don't know what the actor's dealing with or if he has any desire to be slim-and-trim -- as he is in "21 Jump Street," which opens this weekend -- or if he's content with his figure. "You just gotta live your life," he told Esquire. "I'm happy with myself."
Fair enough. But we were very surprised to see how only a few months after the movie was filmed, Hill appears to have gained back a lot of the 40 pounds he shed for the film. "I was thin in high school and then I gained weight," he said. "I went to a nutritionist. I learned for the first time about what things are healthy to eat, basically." Hill then rattled off a few of his favorite spots to grub in L.A., which tells us that maybe the guy just loves to eat food and doesn't give a s*** what anyone else thinks about it. Maybe it's a body image lesson for everyone. Now take a tour through the hilarious actor's career and see how his face has expanded and narrowed and expanded and narrowed.
Have you ever wondered how many emails are sent each day? How much information is consumed online? How many blog posts like this one are written? How many people update their Facebook status every 24 hours? How many photos are browsed, porn videos are viewed and new apps are downloaded over a single day? We're sure at least one of those questions has crossed your mind. And we're equally sure that just the thought staggered you, because those are some huge numbers, and you never thought your mind could wrap around it. Well, thanks to the good people at MBA Online, there is now an infographic that shows you all of the huge numbers in a colorful and easy-to-read format. It answers all of the above questions plus how many hours of music are streamed from Pandora, how many people visit Google+ versus Pinterest and even how iPhone sales outpace the number of babies born each day.
