Lately something has been on my mind that I would love to get some input on. I think most men have had this experience at some point in their lives and responded differently. Someone gets in your…Continue

Last year I bought a couple of very dark leather boots. After the winter I had both the heels replaced as they started to come off and the shoemaker really did a great job. Yesterday I was polishing…Continue

"All i can say to this is to pass on some advice from my father (a former bouncer): "There is never an excuse for starting a fight. That being said, if someone else starts it, you damn well finish it." Advice i took to heart. Like you, i…"

"I think rather than evaluating the reasons to avoid or accept a fight you should focus on why your getting into these situations. Perhaps you are hanging out in the wrong areas or you are giving off some kind of obnoxious vibes. Adult men should not…"

Adrian Miranda replied to Bram G's discussion Taking the high road or being a coward?
"Giving in to the moment is ultimately giving away your self control.  If you do not want to fight then don't fight.  You will wind up more angry at your self then the idiot in the bar.  Pick better company to keep."

Rick Shelton replied to Bram G's discussion Taking the high road or being a coward?
"Incorrect usage of the term "golden mean'. Personally I think he is doing fine.  Up to the point where the other person throws a punch it is not cowardice to simply walk away from a potential fight.  You can be assertive without…"

Joshua replied to Bram G's discussion Taking the high road or being a coward?
"Generally, taking the high road is the complete opposite of cowardice. Having strength and courage to NOT give in to some whackjob who's trying to push your buttons is a sign of self-control and manliness. The coward is afraid, not just of the…"

"   It's only cowardice when you fail to fight when it's genuinely needed; to protect yourself, your property, a friend, or a loved one from being hurt. A man has to consider the reprecussions of everything, and these…"

"Whatever the issue is, you have to believe it is worth fighting for. If you fight for it, you run the risk of dying for it. To keep from dying for it you may yourself have to kill for it. How important is that chair?  How hurtful that insult?"

D.J. replied to Bram G's discussion Taking the high road or being a coward?
"This, exactly. Cowards shrink from everything. They shrug off responsibility and turn the other way when they face challenges. You don't seem to be doing that. You're just resolving the conflicts in a nonviolent way. Of course, if…"

"+100 for the self massage technique. Sometimes things like tennis elbow and carpal tunnel are merely caused by tense muscles or tight fascia pinching nerves."

"Funny you mentioned this. I had the same thing happen for the first time yesterday. I think I jumped into my pushups too quickly. Tennis elbow, nerve entrapment, whatever. Call it whatever you want, either way you have a minor bit of damage…"

Rachel Klingberg replied to Bram G's discussion Tingling sensation in the elbow when doing push-ups
"Sounds like tennis elbow. I get that from pushups as well, I usually do at least 60 a week and it's a repetitive motion condition. As far as why you're getting it now when it's never bothered you before, who knows? Could be that you…"
