Ah Philosophy, the search for the great answers of life itself and the greater meaning of it all. I've read quite a few comments since the AoM community was founded, and it would appear to me that there are quite a few armchair-philosophers out there.

I propose to use this forum to encourage intelligent discussion among us. In this spirit, I'll be posing a daily philosophical question in the Discussion section. I'm looking forward to the coming discussions.

Here's a link to 300+ free online documentaries. Plenty of philosophical stuff to chew about listed here - The Fog of War (An interview with Robert McNamara) is included in the list. So is Earthlings, if you like controversial vegan philosophical arguments, plus plenty of other stuff.

I think it is great how many "young" philosophers there are in this group.

Hello! I'm even younger than you, pjotr bos--turning 16 in April. I'm open to discussion, same as you all are.

Hey guys. I'm a 19 year old neuroscience student from NZ. I also study classics and philosophy in my spare time and am beginning to take up writing as a hobby. I'm particularly interested in political philosophy and metaphysics. I'm looking forward to getting involved in these discussions and expanding my knowledge.

Hello everyone. I am an 25 year old entrepreneur in real estate investment. I also enjoy moonlighting as an armchair philosopher. I am always interested in a good philosophical discussion, and the opportunity for me to learn, and share what I have learned.

Hello all! I am a student of archaeology and anthropology. Thus, there's quite a lot of philosophy involved in my studies. I am looking to learn more about social philosophies and materiality; particularly those works written past 2000 as most of the archaeology theory books I have been reading go up until 2006. If you have any suggestions, please contact me.

Best water based pomade for under $8?

I use Murray's, but it hasn't been holding well or giving me much height lately, due to the humidity. I live in Maryland and it is very humid, all year round. It doesn't work well because of that. I love Murray's because it lasts a while and it works well with my wallet. I have a minimum wage job that makes it hard for me to buy expensive products. So, what is the best water based pomade for under $8? I'm looking for one with high hold and low to medium shine.See More
