Hello, Art of Manliness; my name is Ender, and I'm a senior biochemistry and philosophy double major. I'm currently towards the end of the medical school application process (so fingers are crossed).

I've been perusing articles here for a few years now, and I thought I would join the conversation on these fine fora. I imagine it's more or less the digital equivalent of chatting at a barber shop while you wait.

That's a good analogy. You just got lots of cool points in my book just for your name. LOL Have you read the books by Orson Scott Card? 

Anyway, welcome and good luck on med school. I hope you know what you're getting yourself in to! 

Only Ender's Game; I never got into the sequels/parallel novels.

As for medical school, I hope so too!

Hallo Ender, welcome to AoM. 

Interesting pairing for your academic pursuits. I look forward to your discussion contributions. Will keep my fingers crossed as well, for your med school plans. 

Thank you.

Science and philosophy make a more natural combination than one would think. I have always seen science as a subset of philosophy.

A fair point. There was a pretty hard divide between the two departments when I was in school. But generally, I would agree with you.

Philosophy major? Have fun with that

I hope that's not sarcastic...

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More

"Interesting list of arts.  I don't agree that all of these are necessary for a man to learn, but hey, neither is Minecraft and I enjoy it in my downtime.  I look forward to your next post."

Relatively new here; thought I'd say hello

Hello men,I'm not new to Art of Manliness, but I am new to the community. I thought I'd take the time to introduce myself. I'm almost 30, married for just over a year, and we have our first child on the way. I'm Mormon. I worked for five years sewing men's clothing, which is perfectly fine as a manly career in my opinion, but it was a dead-end job ultimately, so I quit and became an electrician. I'm still in my first year as an apprentice, but I'm very happy doing it. Before that, I was…See More

"My wife likes my hair tamed, but she doesn't want me to get rid of any of it entirely. She likes the look of hair on a man. I'd say don't shave, and unless your pit hair is really out of control, don't trim it either. "
