"Military training taught me a lot, here's what I learned. If you want to lose weight, run. Don't run for a distance as much as for a time. I lost a lot of body fat by using a sustained run. I'd start with ten minutes for 5 days a week…"
"This is my take on the situation being only 5 years out of his bracket. These days it seems like taking the long way around (i.e. learning how to do something or actually doing it yourself) is considered to be a negative by today's youth. I was…"
"I recently got into Automotive repair, I had always been interested in working on cars and had NO idea about any of it. A little help from the web and a couple of conversations with some Motorheads and I was good to go. I also got into small…"
"My old man was another of the fathers that would use this line. I know that I once heard it in a movie called Willow. But more to the point, my father would often say "It'll put hair on your chest" in order to coerce me to try any of…"
"I have to agree with C.C. on this one. I come from a family of cops and plenty veterans, as well as being a veteran myself. How many people actually know what it's like to give up your freedom for others to be free? I have. Many of my friends…"
"I see the point you're trying to make, let me clarify. I do believe that God, Allah, etc. are all one in the same. Don't try to relate Christ to G.I.'s because one sacrifice is not the same as another. Even between veteran's (I…"
"Here's one that I wrote a while back about a woman that I lost that meant a great deal to me. Although the time has passed and with it the pain, seeing this poem still stirs the memory.
Swallow it all then spit it back out. Try so hard not to…"
"So here's a thought, something I've been playing with on my path to find religion and I'd love to hear the inputs from others. I have a strongly held belief that as time goes on, the divine constructs have merely changed names. As…"
"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

"I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix,
angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night"- Allen Ginsber
"From my good friend Lewis Grizzard (RIP Lewis, I know you loved that game Sat!):
A man was sitting on his front porch when it started to rain. The rain came down harder and harder and the man realized that it was a flood. So the flood waters were…"
" So someone who smokes every couple of weeks in a social setting out of town is a pothead?
It's so hard to listen to the opinion of someone who radicalizes the point of view they don't agree with. Is someone who…"
It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group. My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop. See More
"It's pot, bro, not crystal meth?
