Chuck Neal replied to Hampton Kennedy's discussion Our flag hit the ground
"If it didn't get soiled or damaged then it is ok to keep flying it. It is not a superstition, the code is just intended to keep us from flying tattered old flags that do not show it the dignity that it deserves. There is actually a pretty good…"

Chuck Neal replied to Brian Splash's discussion When teens go bad
"While that is the ideal, in this situation getting involved as a mentor/friend can have some impact. No guarantee, but a lot of kids without an ideal family have benefited from a family friend, relative, boy's and girl's club mentor, or…"

Chuck Neal replied to Brian Splash's discussion When teens go bad
"Sadly, he has had no male role model (based on your description). Ideally, if you and the others involved could work out a way to work with him so he can see alternatives, that is better, but he is going to resist. If the grandmother would be…"

Chuck Neal replied to Derek's discussion Beefing up for the summer
"How much lifting experience do you have? If you are a newbie, stick to the basics. It seems overly simplistic but the big 3 (dead lift, squats, bench press) are a solid base. Not only do they bulk easier than smaller groups, but the first 2 are…"

Chuck Neal replied to Josh's discussion What to do?
"Ask casually, and I would try something better than a movie. Try a meal, coffee, etc where you can actually talk. Movies can be both impersonal (no talking) and not an ideal first date. But ask her. You are playing out scenarios in your head about…"

Chuck Neal replied to Don's discussion Boss dumping all work on one
"This depends a lot on your boss. I happen to own a software firm and it is really tricky to balance load with developers. Each has different skills and different level of efficiency with different tasks. Before you go in and talk to him I recommend…"

Chuck Neal replied to Jeremy Anderberg's discussion Fiction for Men -- Need Your Recommendations!
"Ray Bradbury and George Orwell are always good reads for something more in to classic Sci-Fi/through provoking relm. For more humor most anything by Douglas Adams tends to be entertaining in its absurdity. I'll add my vote for Dan Brown as…"

Chuck Neal replied to John's discussion How can I ask a girl this?
"Refreshing post man. Good for you. Being a gentleman is always the best route. You don't have to memorize Emily Post or anything like that. It is just about being considerate to others. You might get some comments from others, but don't…"

Chuck Neal replied to Dustin Ru.'s discussion My Fiances and I's Time Together...
"I second what Jack said. In addition, she needs you to step it up right now. This may not be what you want to hear, but if you feel a disconnect, see what you can do for her. Not trying to bust your chops, but your post has a lot about what you are…"

Chuck Neal replied to William's discussion a change will do you good
"That is a pretty open ended question. Web development spans a lot of languages and disciplines, but in general get ready for a lot of change. I've been in the programming business for around 20 years and it changes constantly. I can pick any…"

Chuck Neal replied to Vince's discussion Why Girls Go For Bad Guys
"I do think most of it is about being assertive, not necessarily "bad". Our modern world has watered down things that were traditionally considered manly. We have left the "good guy" stuck between trying to be the man in the…"

Chuck Neal replied to Sérge NP's discussion Your morning workout, gentlemen?
"I've pondered living in France some time in the future. Spent some time there in college and would love to go back for an extended stay. Sounds like I would need to change up my morning routine a bit. There is always the option of body weight…"

Chuck Neal replied to Sérge NP's discussion Your morning workout, gentlemen?
"I prefer the gym as it mentally separates me from other things (work, home, etc) and forces me to focus on exercise. 3-4 days of weights a week, alternating muscle groups and 1-2 of cardio is my typical routine. I start around 5:30 so I am out…"

Chuck Neal replied to Brett McKay's discussion Founder of Scouts Gay?
"To borrow the phrase. "Well that escalated quickly". Not sure when we went from a civil discussion about implied meaning of a post to wild accusations, but that is totally uncalled for. So much for enjoying the civility of this group and…"

Chuck Neal replied to Brett McKay's discussion Founder of Scouts Gay?
"Yes, the word "and" does join the 2 phrases and does not, when used alone, imply a relationship. Add in  "maybe even" and it creates a direct implication of relationship between the words. Had the "maybe even" been…"

Chuck Neal replied to Brett McKay's discussion Founder of Scouts Gay?
"Well, was I surprised that my search results came up that Baden-Powell may have been a repressed homosexual himself and maybe even a pedophile. This implies progression or escalation. Grammatically, there is an expectation of relationship between…"

John White commented on John White's blog post needing a change
"well its great that you see the world that way but others do not. Some of us are not blinded by what some call "happiness". Depression does not offer "false belief", it has opened my eyes."

"A few years back my college roommate committed suicide.  (His mother called me.)  As I drove home that day, I saw the sun on the trees, and the blue sky, and thought:  you idiot!  You're _missing_ it! He was bipolar.…"

"Titus, when are you finally going to come to America? You talk so much about people having to learn this or that to be taken seriously. At some point, for many of us to take you seriously as someone who claims that they understand America, you are…"

Steve Dallas replied to Will's discussion What's going on in those heads in the group The Great Debate
"Funny, I have always thought of the conservative as the coward. Their entire philosophy is built on the premise of not trying to do something new, to staying with the old. The very word, conservative is to take the easy way, to not challenge or push…"

Steve Dallas replied to Kneller's discussion Shoes for a night out
"I'll second this one. Been in boots since the mid-90's. First it was Justin Ropers, then I did the Wolverine work boots for years(after doing construction then working in a factory), quality went down so I went back to the Justin roper…"
