"IMHO, virtually everything on wheels built in the past few decades is mechanically, "like a swiss watch".  It's a trade off.  40 years ago, cars were mechanically far simpler, but needed a whole lot more routine maintaining…"

"Hmmm.  Let's see.  First off, unless you have mechanical or other issues with the car, it's going to be likely lots cheaper to fix it.  Uneven tire wear?  You need to get a four wheel alignment and a new set…"

"Cool :) . I guess I have a question about the above recipe posted on AoM.  When it mentions ounces, does that refer to non-fluid ounces?"

The Great Debate

"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

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More

Relatively new here; thought I'd say hello

Hello men,I'm not new to Art of Manliness, but I am new to the community. I thought I'd take the time to introduce myself. I'm almost 30, married for just over a year, and we have our first child on the way. I'm Mormon. I worked for five years sewing men's clothing, which is perfectly fine as a manly career in my opinion, but it was a dead-end job ultimately, so I quit and became an electrician. I'm still in my first year as an apprentice, but I'm very happy doing it. Before that, I was…See More
