Probably time to introduce myself after being here over a month

Hello, everyone!

 

First off, I'm a born-again Christian, and I believe the Bible to be the word of God. Second, I'm husband to my childhood sweetheart, and I wouldn't trade our relationship for the world. She keeps my feet planted, our house tidy, my mind challenged, my relationship with God strengthened, my belly fed and my bed warm, among other things. Third, I'm daddy to a beautiful (if I do say so myself) 18-month old girl, who has her daddy's heart wrapped around her little finger. Her little brother is due to arrive around Thanksgiving, though I doubt he'll wait that long. Fourth, I'm in the DEP (delayed entry program) for the US Navy, where I will be a 4th generation sailor. Not sure if I'm going to make it a career or just do my 8-10 years and get out, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

 

I enjoy doing manly things, not the least of these shooting guns, hiking, white water rafting, canoeing, camping, and basically anything outdoors. Ultimate frisbee is probably my best sport, but I'll play basically anything that's available.

 

The reason I joined this website was because a) it's manly, b) I needed what a lot of the articles said, and c) to join in the discussion on various pages. I'm glad to be aboard, and look forward to learning how to improve myself as a man with the direction of this page, as well as the manly men in my life.

Welcome, and thank you for signing up to serve.  I had to chuckle a bit because you are headed to the Navy but, "...shooting guns, hiking, white water rafting, canoeing, camping, and basically anything outdoors." is what I did for the entirety of my enlistment in the Army,  82nd Division.

True, and outdoorsy things would probably be more available to a soldier and/or Marine, but I also have a family to consider. Which is why I'm going into the nuclear power program. Great education and experience, and basically a guarenteed job once I get out.

 

Oh, and my dad, his dad, and his dad graduated from Annapolis. That might have had something to do with it. :)

"What kind of car is it? Most of the time, when I run into weird car idiosyncrasies like that, there's a YouTube video with some mechanic that explains it. Do a search on replacing the battery or removing the intake from exactly that model…"

How Do I Do This?

I want to replace my car battery.The air intake covers the battery. I need to remove it. It has two small screws. No biggie.EXCEPT.The screws are covered by some plastic trip that is kept in place with their weird plasticky . . . caps? Screws? Bolts? Whatever they are, they're those round, button-looking things on the plastic trim at the front of the engine.I was able to force two of them out…See More

"A very good read. Will definitely check out Pascoe's books to see if they shed even more light on the situation."

"This may be a decent chunk of the issue. Is the self-protectiveness the driving force behind everything, or rather the lack of suitable alternatives towards masculinity in the culture?"
