Good Day

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bryan Smith Feb 9, 2012. 3 Replies

Good day, gentlemen. I've been following the site for some time and, after having recently finished reading "The Art of Manliness", I can say with confidence that I am officially hooked. For a brief bio, I am a mechanical engineering graduate of…Continue

About Me

Greetings, curious sir. You're probably reading this to gain some more information about me, and so, for what it's worth, I shall attempt to spare your disappointment in this regard.

In brief, I am a mechanical engineering graduate of Texas A&M University (2008), originally hailing from Allen, TX. I am married (2 yrs) with no kids (yet), and am currently living and working in Houston, TX. Like most here, I am a man of many tastes, although I particularly enjoy (especially in unison, where applicable) classic literature, smooth jazz, fine cigars, premium beers, hunting, fishing, camping, a casual game of golf, and the occasional scotch on the rocks. You could also say that I'm an (armchair) student of philosophy/theology in that I enjoy studying and thinking about the big questions in life, sometimes at the expense of everything else.

With regards to AoM, I've been following the site for some time and, after having recently finished reading "The Art of Manliness" book, I can say with confidence that I am officially hooked. I am excited to have discovered AoM, and very much look forward to getting to know everyone here while participating in both learning and discussing the many nuggets of manly wisdom to be found on this site.

In sum, I'm glad to be here. If you wish to know more, feel free to drop me a line. I'm pretty laid back and am always down for some casual conversation.

Cheers, Bryan

Your favorite things about raising a boy

So today my wife and I found out that we are having a boy. This is our first child, so we are still experiencing everything for the first time, and it's a wild ride. We're very excited. I thought that since we're having a boy, I'd ask all you fathers of boys what your favorite parts of raising boys are. What do you enjoy most? On the other hand, what do you enjoy least?

Has AOM jumped the shark or is it's just cyclical

There is nothing political or religious about this topic but let's face it, unless I'm discussing going shirtless or masterbating, there isn't too many active groups at the moment. I thought it would be a rude headline for the front page though. So here it is, on Herb's biblical paradigm/TGD. At least I think it is. You can't comment on the group's main page anymore and the feed doesn't show on the community main page either anymore (or does it again now?) so who knows, maybe no one can read…See More
