"Used to be Guinness Draught. Recently I have had go-to breweries not beers.
Ommegang is from upstate NY, and I can't get enough. If I had to pick one it would be their "Three-Philosophers Ale" it's a Belgian Quadruple…"
"If he doesn't get too much taller I wouldn't really sweat it. Many people seem to over value the height issue in cars. I honestly think most men say they need a big car cause they wanted a big car, and they're tall so…"
"Can I be George Bailey? I'd like to be George Bailey.
But if we're sticking with fantastical extremes, I'm a Captain America man myself(he is sort of George Bailey with superpowers... think about it)."
"The only telemarketers that I have encountered who don't take you off of their list are the ones running a scam. Next time, answer the phone play like your interested and get some info on whomever is calling you. If they seem…"
"As far as the cigarettes go, lose them. There are other ways to get nicotine. Even if you chew a million packs of nicotine gum, or use chewing tobacco or "pack lip"(all of the tobacco options still have cancer risks), at least you…"
"I have worked as a lifeguard for 7 years(last day is today actually), and the one thing I will definitely say is, do not get board shorts if you have any intention of actually swimming. My favorite suite is a pair of swimming…"
"I generally avoid ripped jeans, and I would never recommend buying a pair of ripped jeans. If they are an old pair of jeans that you happened to have ripped, I would wear them to something that will have an activity, a bar-b-que where you know…"
Fiction: Paradise Lost, Lord of the Rings, Myth, Pre-1800 Literature,and Comic books.
Non-Fiction: The righteous Mind, and other social science books.
Fight Club, It's a Wonderful Life, The Dark Knight (All of Christopher Nolan's movies to date), Star Wars (Original Trilogy), Braveheart, Gladiator, Thank you for Smoking, The other Guys, and the occasional mindless action flick or comedy.
I tend to prefer alternative rock, but I like at least one artist from every genre. I'd say Alt-Rock, Rock, Blues, and Funk would be my top four.
The Black Keys
Aerosmith(Particularly the Album Honkin' on Bobo)
There are way too many great quotes to pick just one. I'm somewhat of a quote collector, and I pull them out all the time. For some reason, when the great Men and Women of History say something people give it more attention. But there is one quote I use the most. I might even say it's my favorite.
A stopped clock is right twice a day.

"Mainly comes when there is a change towards mainstream for the fandom. D&D took off hugely in the last 3 years thanks to Game of Thrones, Critical Role, and other shows that have vastly increased the number of people getting into the hobby. Same…"
"Understandably? Why understandably? I can think of plenty of sub-cultures in similar situations that nonetheless welcome noobies so long as the latter demonstrate a certain respect in regards to the sub-culture itself."
"I have always been on the skinny side. I just end up with an extra layer on. It may just be a simple fact that you need a few extra layers.
As to friends drifting away. I hit that when my son was born. All my friends did not…"
There is also, understandably, a culture of exclusion in most fandom-type groups, against great numbers of incoming "fans." Nobody wants their hobby invaded by poseurs and wannabes. This is exacerbated when those wannabes not only think…"
"I admit I don't know anything about that. But the movie, on its own, was simply terrible. Not terrible because it was cramming feminism down anyone's throat, though, because IMO that never happened at any point in the movie. It was just…"
"With GB, the politics was in the choice of director and the casting, and in the extra-curricular statements and press. Not in the script. Mostly. It certainly wasn't an "assumption", though. It was said outright.
