David Arbogast replied to Salt Dragon's discussion Saunas and work culture in the group Banya Men!
"Actually, I would like to see myself as I was on the day I was born.  The only thing that is said to improve with age is wine."

David Arbogast replied to Art's discussion Beat the Clock in the group Men Over 50
"I am enjoying life much more than when I was younger.  Since turning 60 I have made three trips to China and one to VietNam.  I really enjoyed them all."

David Arbogast replied to Drew's discussion Dealing with a depressing job
"I had a great boss once whose own boss was such a jerk that my boss quit, abandoning me and two others to the "tender mercies" of John the Jerk.  John was on a power trip and had about thirty people under him.  Hewasan…"

David Arbogast replied to George Corbul's discussion Here's a silly question...
"The only reference I know of to Greenland in popular culture is Reginald Heber's (he was actually English) famous hymn, "From Greenland's Icy Mountains", and that was written in 1819."

David Arbogast replied to Sir's discussion Ceiling repair
"If you want to do it yourself, I recommend reading up on it in The Old-House Journal.  You can look up any topic in their index and find just about anything dealing with repairs of an old house. However, if you prefer to hire someone, I would…"

David Arbogast left a comment for Josef Schmolsky
"What sort of musician are you?  What genre of music do you like best?"

David Arbogast replied to Penelope's discussion To circumcise or not? in the group Christian Men
"Doctors today agree that there are no health benefits to circumcision, so that old argument for it is out the window.  I honestly don't see any advantage to it and would save my money and the pain of my son and let him decide for himself."

David Arbogast replied to Goceus's discussion Can a spiritually unawakened man truly master the art of manliness?! in the group Christian Men
"This is tricky, indeed.  In your premise, you condemn all non-Christian men into a limbo of immorality, at worst, and amorality, at best. If morality is strictly defined in Christian terms, then nobody other than Christians can be moral. …"

David Arbogast replied to Milo Morris's discussion New American Bible Society Project in the group Christian Men
"I find this disturbing.  I knew the ABS had meandered considerably over the years as its supporting denominations trended into liberalism, and disinterest in the Bible.  It seems that they now are spending hard-earned donations counter to…"

David Arbogast commented on Bruce Uall's group The Shirtless Man
"Yeah, I take the shirt off whenever it is warm enough, too.  Because I work at home I get to go shirtless as much as I like.  From time to time folks will show up at my door.  I enjoy their expressions when I answer the door…"

David Arbogast commented on Stephen Larsen's group Banya Men!
"I've been reading a couple of books recently about the architecture of the Ottoman Empire.  Despite all the barbarism of much of the culture, they built great bathhouses, usually near the mosque.  As they say, cleanliness is next to…"

David Arbogast commented on Bruce Uall's group The Shirtless Man
"I have the great advantage of being single and working at home in addition to having a weird metabolism where I easily overheat.  I can only actively work outside, mowing grass in the summer or shoveling snow in the winter, for fifteen minutes…"

Poe Dameron replied to David Arbogast's discussion Torso Hair in the group The Shirtless Man
"I'm at the age where you don't care anymore. When I was a teenager I was very modest myself and I dreaded PE because I was so uncomfortable with people seeing me naked. Now I don't care anymore"
Nov 29, 2016
Mark Sanderson replied to David Arbogast's discussion Torso Hair in the group The Shirtless Man
"Generally speaking younger guys do tend to be more modest in locker room situations. It's just been within the past few years that I've gotten to the point that I don't go out of my way to cover up when changing or showering at the…"

Salt Dragon replied to David Arbogast's discussion Torso Hair in the group The Shirtless Man
"I respect you and don't want to come across sounding like a snarky codger (vs. just a plain old codger at 53).  I've debated shaving my back but never my pits.  When I lived in Germany in the 80's the women didn't shave…"

David, I still can't get the cartoon into the reply field on Bow Tie Wearers.

I've copied the image and then I can't paste it into the reply field. If I drag the jpeg into the field it works but the picture is so big I can't see anything else. I'll keep trying. Davis
