Brad Williams replied to Danisatan's discussion Rules of a Relationship
"Couples should totally communicate about what they want in their relationship, and the sooner the better, though I think there's no need to draw up a contract. But there's also no need to let whatever's prevailing in society be your…"

Brad Williams replied to Danisatan's discussion Pacing a work in the group Writers
"There is a writer's group on AoM, actually. I suggest you join and ask there. I am also a writer.  I don't consider myself an authority, but I can repeat some good advice about pacing, at least at the outset, which is to say that the…"

Brad Williams replied to Herb Munson's discussion What Is Your Credulity Factor? in the group The Great Debate
"Just because the odds are so astronomically low that something seems to lose credulity doesn't mean it isn't real. To give another example, a vasectomy is 99.99% effective.  And yet, somewhere out there are a few kids who came to be…"

Brad Williams replied to Brad Williams's discussion Shooting clays - worth it for $2,000? in the group Riflemen
"Yeah, that's a good point.  What I did in Tennessee was sporting clays at a place that also had 5 stand.  So we'll see if skeet and trap are as fun to me as 21 stations in the woods was."

Brad Williams replied to Brad Williams's discussion Shooting clays - worth it for $2,000? in the group Riflemen
"Yeah, I'm going to take a trip out there in a week or two and check the place out.  I think they do have a variety of guns in terms of brand, but they're basically all over-unders unless some members have "bought" their own…"

Kevin Collier replied to Brad Williams's discussion Shooting clays - worth it for $2,000? in the group Riflemen
"Okay, I will suggest asking if you can try the 130 plan a couple of times and see if they will credit it towards the purchase. Even if not, 260 will hopefully let you see if you think you want to invest the rest. if so, buy the membership and enjoy.…"

John Muir replied to Brad Williams's discussion Shooting clays - worth it for $2,000? in the group Riflemen
"It really depends on how much $2000 is to you, and how long you're going to be living in Thailand, and how often you come to the states. If $2K isn't a HUGE amount of money, I'd say it's worth it - especially if you don't…"

Jackalope Glen replied to Brad Williams's discussion Shooting clays - worth it for $2,000? in the group Riflemen
"It is all going to depend on the individual. I love sporting clays myself. I am not really a skeet and trap fan. I could see myself getting bored really fast if those were the only two options. Same goes for me with pistol or rifle shooting though.…"
