I'll admit, I'm new to folklore in the academic sense, but I feel like I've been spent my whole life learning about the topic. Steak getting rid of black eyes, outhouses that are always built the…Continue

Hey friends, I'm sorry that I've been neglecting this group. I've been working on master's since the last time I checked in. What's everyone up to these days?

I"m really glad I found this group. As a former storyteller, it gets harder and harder to get "real" stories anymore; everyone just wants to pass along books they've read, and not legends or tales from times past.

I find world folklore fascinating.

The brownies that live in my backyard told me I should join this group.

Hunting: Questions, Concerns, and General Discussion!

It seems to me that not many men on the board are discussing the finer points of hunting, it's equipment or tactics. Why is this? There are so many facets of the sport that are considered quintessentially manly, yet I don't believe it is getting adequate coverage. So I propose this be a post dedicated to answering questions or concerns about hunting or gear that any of you might have. If I don't know the answer I will attempt to find it.

"One time my great grandfather got pulled over; the cop must have thought he was drunk. The cop then learns that he was reading his Bible. While driving. Got off with a warning. So maybe if you keep a Bible open you can BS your way out of a ticket."
