Charlie replied to Lynn Jones's discussion What is a manly job for 15 year olds
"When I was 15 1/2  I got my first job at a local car wash.  I'm not sure if it was manly or not, but I've always loved cars so being able to be inside of a variety of cars (especially the very nice ones) was a great…"

My girlfriend of 8 months and I just broke up.  I don't post here often, but it's almost easier to type out thoughts to random people that can offer objective criticism and encouragement rather than friends or family.Everything spiraled down hill quickly.  We had planned on moving in together, and really just rushing everything.  She lives out of town, and we both work in different cities.  Out of those 8 months we got to see each other less than a hundred times.  It really takes it's toll when…See More

Charlie replied to Nathan DeParis's discussion The Insanity Workout
"Insanity is a really good cardio/toning workout if that's your end goal.  Some people have mentioned P90X.  I like combining both, along with going to the gym.  I've memorized/written down most of the P90X upper body…"

Charlie commented on Chris Weitzel's blog post The Lost Art of Self-Reliance
"I like your ideas here.  I think for most guys they just do a cost-benefit analysis of time and effort vs. money.  Money usually wins as the answer to their problem.  Other times it's convenient.  I learned how to…"

Charlie replied to Justin Cook's discussion Pick your poison
"If I want something sweet or a lady comes over and wants a drink but doesn't like normal beers or whiskey:  Orange soda and vanilla rum.  Tastes like a dreamsicle.  It's also good with mango soda.   A bodega I used to…"

HVAC Question

I'm living with two buddies currently renting a house from a landlord. Being three post college 20 year olds, we don't have a lot of money, and one of the bills is for utilities and such.

One of the vents is…See More
