Conor Gallagher replied to Todd Serveto's discussion Calling Dad by his First Name? REALLY?
"Personally I call my dad by his first name every now and then, it's basically interchangeable with dad.  I started doing it as I got older and I'll typically do it in a crowd where saying dad won't necessarily get the attention…"

"I had it happen to me when I was 11. I remember having a friend of the family let us use one of his apartments until we could get a new home, which conveniently came in the form of the neighboring house (to the burned down one) that a friend of the…"

Conor Gallagher replied to Sean O''s discussion Bad-ass-ness
"I climbed thirty feet up an oak tree with a hatchet in my belt and a saw slung over my shoulder so that I could hack away at a large branch that I had to sit on in order to chop.  When the branch came down I had to hang from the trunk of the…"

Capt. Monkey replied to Conor Gallagher's discussion Cigar Selection
"I tend to like maduros too.  Seems like a commonality with many of us.  If you can get your hands on a Monte Cristo, try.  They're definitely on the steep end and hard to get (Cubans), but I've enjoyed the few that I've…"

"This.  Great advice.  I remember feeling silly asking the shop owner about cigars, but he enjoyed sharing his knowledge.  He told me all about ring counts, different sizes of cigars, etc. "

"Yeah I have had similar experiences with cigars sometimes its how the shop is storing them. If they are not humidified enough or are over humidified that happens. I have had it happen on all different brands. Cant say I have had that issue with CAO.…"

Rick Shelton replied to Conor Gallagher's discussion Cigar Selection
"I've smoked CAO's until recently, I had issues with the wrapper that I didn't care for.  I then tried a Rocky Patel, which I enjoyed and a new brand "Rockefeller" which was decent.  Both are over $5 a cigar though."

Conor Gallagher replied to JSpirtos's discussion F*ck it! I'm shaving my head for now on. Any advise for this newcomer of the bald?
"Your head will be very cold at first, and then you will be prone to sunburn. By the way, stubble is the most annoying thing you will ever experience, it's like having velcro on your scalp."

Conor Gallagher replied to Chu Kim's discussion Can Man Become God?
"Wasn't the purpose of God's incarnation as Jesus to show us that God is a man.      Everyone states that the bible preaches humility and sacrifice, yet God came down and spent years with his greatest creation, a creation…"

Conor Gallagher replied to Chu Kim's discussion Can Man Become God?
"As an anomaly in the philosophical spectrum, a catholic objectivist, I can tell you that I have come to the conclusion that godliness was are original intent.  As a people created in God's image we have the ability to obtain everything he…"

Matt Phillippi replied to Conor Gallagher's discussion Cigar Selection
"It's already been said, but ask the person at your local shop. You can order online, but the experience is never the same, especially starting off. Do you like a bit of spice in your life? A Cameroon or a Criollo wrapper might be up your alley.…"

MDBuss replied to Conor Gallagher's discussion Cigar Selection
"The best cigar I've had is an Aurora Preferido. It's diminutive in stature (a smaller torpedo) that probably runs about $20 a pop. Absolutely excellent though. "

Quote
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
