"Yes, unless that baby is actually suckling off of your breast you are very much a man! If not then even manlier that you are gardening with your baby attached."

"     Exactly.      Like anything else, it's a time money trade-off. Once you get beyond a certain size, you'd better rent or own a tractor. After all, doesn't matter how much of a hammer swingin'…"

"I think so; I enjoy the whole package, agriculture, herbalism and botany. As Karl said, self-sufficiency is manly."

"Fair enough.  I was thinking more "pruning with a chainsaw" or "tilling with a backhoe".  But, I'm not much of a gardener, anyway. JB"

"Heading out in the morning. Hoping to get to the Saltlick by 11, fill up on BBQ, then go backroads up to Fredericksburg, get some wine, then meander slowly on home looking at the flowers."

"Gardening is also a part of farming. There's alot of edible plants and flowers. So gardening is in my opinion manly because it could help you become self-sustained or survive in the wild."

""... though power tools can make most anything manlier.  Garden with horsepower.  Overkill is underrated." Rototillers are for pussies afraid of hard work, sweat and blisters. Pick, shovel and spade all the way, say I."

""Possibly" on the gardening -- though power tools can make most anything manlier.   I'm going to go with "no" on the breastfeeding baby sling, though.  No way I'd've worn one of those.   JB"

"I agree there are benefits to no till, fostering that community of microorganisms in the soil builds healthier plants and soil, and keeps the weeds down. However compaction is a farmers worst enemy, and it is constantly ongoing. So tilling, plowing,…"

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More

Admiring aspects of times of oppression

I was having a conversation with a woman today and I made a positive comparison to the style and composition of women in the Antebellum South. An African-American lady overheard me speaking and became extremely angry that I made a positive reference to a time when her ancestors were enslaved. I asked her if she thought the bubonic plague was the only thing going on before the European Renaissance, then I asked her if taxes would be the only reason an American would have stayed loyal to Britain…See More
