David L replied to Matt Monsees's discussion I just found out I had a son
"You can use the courts if she refuses to get paternity test, which is the general consensus around here. Do this before investing all of your emotions, time, and money into it. Be smart and lawyer up. You can use JAG services for free brother."

David L replied to Justin Cook's discussion Video Games Hobby Or Waste Of Time.
"Hobby. I enjoy games with friends near and far. It used to consume me as a kid, but I've found much more fun things to do in the past few years."

David L replied to RM's discussion Any ideas of jobs/opportunities to travel (with US or abroad) and meet and interact with a lot of people from different backgrounds
"I'm sure I'm not smart enough for that, Shane. Try something a little more rudimentary. With more guns, and lots more walking."

David L replied to Brian Splash's discussion Appropriate or disrespectful
"Not my intention to insult your idea, if that's how you are taking it. Branch rings are far different than religious medallions. They are crafted for individuals, much like class or superbowl rings I suppose. It's meaning is all sentiment,…"

"No, MY MOS is the best! I'm so awesome! Sheesh. Anyways, multitudes of consulting jobs offer internships internationally. Just look in your own industry.  If not, peace corps and other noble organizations offer up quite the…"

David L replied to Josh Billings's discussion Buying Stock
"You can always try mutual funds. I am not in league with all of these great financial advisors, but for me, mutual funds have yielded a little bit of growth (albeit not mega-millions) in a 'safer' fashion for me in the past 4 years."

David L replied to Kyle L.'s discussion What to do with 100$
"I'd say a new wallet, a watch, or a flask. A knife is a good idea, I suppose.  I'd lean on flask right at this moment, if you drink."

David L replied to Anthony Newnam's discussion Electric vs DE razors
"On deployment and in the field, electric razors are the best (read: I am a hairy guy). Nothing will beat an actual razor with good lather to the face, but the more you use a certain electric razor the more accustomed your skin gets to it.. and the…"

Hello all,So, I've been reading here for quite some time. Decided that it was time to get a little bit more interactive. My name is Dave, and I am an infantry paratrooper currently deployed. Now that fighting season is somewhat winding down, it'd be great to have a manly place to come and escape to. I hope to get around to meeting and talking with more of you.Very respectfully,See More

Your favorite things about raising a boy

So today my wife and I found out that we are having a boy. This is our first child, so we are still experiencing everything for the first time, and it's a wild ride. We're very excited. I thought that since we're having a boy, I'd ask all you fathers of boys what your favorite parts of raising boys are. What do you enjoy most? On the other hand, what do you enjoy least?
