Hello there! I'm Dave, a recent college grad currently living in Oklahoma. Although my actually call the upper Midwest my home. I graduated from college in May with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering. Right now I'm currently employed as an officer in the Air Force, and got posted down south in Oklahoma to undergo pilot training. 

As far as sports and hobbies go, I picked up fishing last year, hopefully soon I'll get the hang of actually finding the fish. I played hockey and soccer recreationally when I was younger, tennis during high school, and got into running as I went into college. Last year I ran my first ever half marathon at the Air Force marathon in Ohio. During my free time I enjoy doing some casual gaming or going out to see whatever's new in theaters. 

I started reading AoM last year and really liked it's down to earth articles on how to build the skills and characteristics that actually define you as a man. I'm working on applying some of the things I've read around the site to my hobbies and personal life so I can be a truly better man. 

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about the military, flying, or studying engineering. And, if anyone knows what there is to see and do in Oklahoma, I'm all ears. I find this state's lack of lakes disturbing...

So Long Men's Barbers

In my modest little town of 12,000, which has 22,000+ when college is in session, we have two barbers. One is mostly retired and the other can hardly stand up half a day.The State of Illinois saw to it to regulate barbers and hairdressers. Excuse me... cosmetologists. A man, or woman, wanting to be just a barber cannot. They have to go to cosmetology school. That is an expensive school. But the cosmetology lobbyists saw to it to regulate hair cuts and barbers need licensure and weeks of formal…See More

Any advice for a clogged bathroom sink?

Hey all - The sink in my bathroom clogs from time to time. Usually it's no big deal and I just have to pop off the trap and pull out a hairball or what have you from one of the sections.This time I've popped off all the plumbing underneath to dig in with an auger, but it's not doing anything. A look with the flashlight showed a caked-on, black, gunky mess two or three feet into the drain pipe; the auger won't budge it. In fact, I think I may have closed the clog up even more snaking it in…See More
