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

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…"

David L replied to Brian Splash's discussion Appropriate or disrespectful
"I don't understand fully the point of having a copy of a copy. The memory of your grandfather and his sacrifices will live on through you, as something to pass down verbally.. or with pictures. Making a copy of a copy creates no real sentiment,…"

David L replied to Brett McKay's discussion How Do You Want to Go Out?
"Typical answers to expect I suppose. I'm from a very small town back in the states. I want to be buried in my dress uniform (army greens) in a small plot in this cemetery I kept clean as a boy scout in my childhood. Quiet, in the…"

Jack Bauer replied to leadership's discussion How can a man know that he has achieved manhood and earned the title of man?
"It's not a saying, it's a Bible verse.  Out of context. It is an example to explain the prior verse, which says "when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears" ... just as childishness inherently disappears when you…"

Jack Bauer replied to David R.'s discussion Lifestyles in the group Out to Build Bridges
"Nobody uses the term 'straight lifestyle' because straight is considered the default.  "Gay lifestyle" is, like Milo said, is intended to differentiate from the norm.  It refers to the ways gay people tend to live…"

Milo Morris replied to David R.'s discussion Lifestyles in the group Out to Build Bridges
"Words like "gay" and "straight" have somewhat approximate definitions, rather than real meanings. For example, in the music world, we refer to "straight" jobs to mean traditional forms of employment outside music. So to…"

Vendetta replied to Daniel's discussion The Best Day of Your Life
"The day I married my wife! Super stressful leading up to the wedding, the relief of seeing how well everything came together, how much fun everyone had, and of course seeing my wife walk down the aisle. Nothing compares."
