Started this discussion. Last reply by Regular Joe Jan 31. 8 Replies

I enjoy reading and contributing to AoM.  But I find that every few minutes this site kicks my computer off of my home wifi.  This never happens unless I have AoM open.  If I close AoM my computer…Continue

Boondocker replied to Jack M.'s discussion What book do you think is worth re-reading and why?.
"The last book that I re-read was "The Power of Habit" by Charles Duhigg.  I read it five times this summer - it's that good (if you are into self-improvement). I also try to read "Six Great Ideas" and "Ten…"

Charles Neill replied to Boondocker's discussion Making Good Men Better in the group Freemasonry
"In Texas, ALL of the work is memory, mouth to ear. I learned how to memorize in a more efficient way which helped me pass some pretty nasty tech certs. Having said that, I have met several better men than I, Good Men that I want to become more…"

Karl Helweg replied to Boondocker's discussion What do you like to fly? in the group Aviation
"I agree that these groups are way too quiet for supposedly being a forum dedicated to "manliness" rather than girly ground pounders. I have the unreasoning bias of a parent or owner so my favorite plane is my Cherokee 160. She is all torn…"

Gentleman Engineer replied to Boondocker's discussion Books for 2014 in the group Book Group
"I do believe that the concept was that the mourning was the cost of the protagonist's understanding and empathy. In addition, it did become apparent that there existed no requirement to destroy the civilization upon the Homeworld of the…"

Regular Joe replied to Boondocker's discussion How did you get interested in the Occult? in the group AoM Secrets and Mysteries
"It can also refer to the lesser known mystical branches of mainstream religions, like Kaballah (Judaism), Suffism (Islam) or even Gnostic Christianity.  "

Regular Joe replied to Boondocker's discussion Do you like your films mainstream or edgy? in the group Film
"When a film (especially from a mainstream studio) tries too hard to be edgy, it often doesn't work out. "

Jason Steven Ristevski replied to Boondocker's discussion Do you like your films mainstream or edgy? in the group Film
"I was going to recommend Robert Rodriguez film debut El Mariachi which is in Mexican but it involves drug dealers and what not, it is quite good and the protagonist isn't involved with drugs but it does involve some chasing and a case of…"

Regular Joe replied to Boondocker's discussion Do you like your films mainstream or edgy? in the group Film
"I like'em treading somewhere in the middle, like the American / Hollywood version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Otherwise I prefer to lean towards non-mainstream. Not necessarily edgy; just non-mainstream. It's a question of…"

Aaron F Kendrick replied to Boondocker's discussion Books for 2014 in the group Book Group
"I thought it was a good story, but the ending sucked where the kid mourned the aliens.  While it is true that we should understand other's motivations for acting the way they do.  If they don't think I should live for whatever…"

Todd Paterek replied to Boondocker's discussion Making Good Men Better in the group Freemasonry
"Personally, I feel I am now better able to keep my passions within due bounds.  When I was going through the degrees I had no idea what this meant.  Now this is probably the single most important lesson I learned so far.  This single…"

Ricky replied to Boondocker's discussion Making Good Men Better in the group Freemasonry
"I think for some men it's the only place that they experience brotherhood - get the chance to do some service work that isn't a huge sacrifice, offers the chance to be around a big group of men to see how other men conduct…"

Patrick replied to Boondocker's discussion How old were you when you joined? in the group Freemasonry
"I was 19 when I petitioned. The state just passed the year before to lower the age to 19 making me the youngest member of my home lodge. I was convinced by the members there that the Grand Master's one day class was best way to go about it. I…"

Boondocker replied to Mark V's discussion How do you break unhelpful thought habits?
"For me it works like this.  I think in sentences.  The process of improving sentences is called editing.    I improve my thinking by editing my mental sentences.  I do this by writing them down on paper and correcting…"

Boondocker replied to Dan Hughes's discussion I Just Finished Watching... in the group Film
"Crime + Punishment is Suburbia (2000)  I like films that are unpredictable and this one qualifies.  Also, at about one hour and eighteen minutes into this film there is the best description of guilt that I have ever heard."
