When did cars lose their sense of manliness?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Steven Reynaud Dec 18, 2013. 261 Replies

Last week, on our commute to her school, my daughter made a rather dismissive comment about cars. She said "Ian, cars aren't cool anymore". I've heard quite a few kids say that recently, and studies…Continue

The art of the dandy (?)

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jarhead Jul 7, 2010. 13 Replies

Perhaps a fitting topic for The Art of Manliness - perhaps not.I just found this website:http://www.dandyism.net/?p=136I must admit that as a man who…Continue

Roman Swiss Army Knife

Started this discussion. Last reply by Harry P Flashman Jul 5, 2010. 2 Replies

Here's something you don't see every day - a Roman multi-purpose knife, made 1600+ years before the Swiss Army got theirs. Now this knife exudes manliness. I'll bet the proud owner of this beauty…Continue

""...these aren't a bunch of metrosexual faggots like I initially thought." Classy! Always good to see posts from the trailer trash contingent."

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Christopher Chillingworth's discussion For anyone Interested in a Side Hustle.
"I don't want to make money. I want other people to make money and then give it to me."
Monday
Ian Brett Cooper replied to Daniel's discussion Decorating my apartment medieval style?
"Great idea! One option is to make some furniture yourself. Home Depot will cut boards to size for a table top and you can use pieces of wood as legs and fit it all together with wood screws. Same with chairs or stools. It all depends on how handy…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Harry Mcgrath's discussion Finding a Taylor
"Well, there are plenty of tailors around, but if you're doing a search for "taylor" (with a "Y") that might be the problem. Many dry cleaners do tailoring. There's Jack's Tailoring in Porter Square."
Monday
Ian Brett Cooper replied to Carl Malo Schneider's discussion Tie Pins and Tie Tacks
"The first and only time I used a tie pin it ruined the tie. I threw the pin away and never used a tie pin or any tie restraint again. If I need my tie to be restrained, I tuck it into my shirt between the buttons."
Saturday
Ian Brett Cooper replied to Milo Morris's discussion NPR is running a series on “Men in America”
"Not sure if this was meant to be a joke, but just in case it wasn't, it's actually National PUBLIC Radio, and maybe the articles are about that sort of stuff, because... well articles about guys who have regular "guy" jobs would…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to James Sullivan's discussion Which is worse-no higher education or higher education that doesn't lead where you'd like?
"At least a degree gives you more options. Many people are happy with the careers their degrees lead them into. Some are not. Anyway, doesn't all higher education lead somewhere you don't want to go? I mean I wanted to be a super-rich…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Daniel's discussion What is the cheapest fighting art to learn?
"By far the cheapest fighting art is pub brawling. Drunk men will teach you for free for merely the price of insulting their wife/girlfriend/mother."

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Regular Joe's discussion To circumcise or not to circumcise . . .
"Carl, how can you say there's no clear answer and that the other route (i.e. leaving the kid intact) is a pain in the ass after reading my post about iatrogenic damage? I never got to raise a son, but if I had, in my mind there's no…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Regular Joe's discussion To circumcise or not to circumcise . . .
"I don't think anyone's saying that circumcised guys must be angry about it. However, I think one of the important points is that there is good reason, for those who are angry about it, to be angry about it, especially given that there are…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Regular Joe's discussion To circumcise or not to circumcise . . .
"You guys are great! When circumcised men refuse to circumcise their kids, it rekindles my faith in humanity. A big part of the issue of why circumcision is still around is that the procedure, as well as causing physical damage, tends to impart a…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Regular Joe's discussion To circumcise or not to circumcise . . .
"In response to this thread, I've had a couple of PM queries about the development of the foreskin, so I thought it might be best to answer them here. The normal infant foreskin is fused to the glans with a membrane known as the balanopreputial…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Matt's discussion My Friend's Emasculating Girlfriend
"Why is asking if he's gay "emasculating" him? Gay guys are men. Besides, technically, asking if he's gay calls into question her own sexual identity, not his, since she ought to know better than anyone if he's gay, and why…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to David Johns's discussion Father support?
"No. My father called me a bastard on numerous occasions (which one would think would reflect more poorly on him than me, but there you go). The closest he got to saying anything positive was once when he said "I love you but I don't like…"

Ian Brett Cooper replied to Rick Shelton's discussion Wife makes more than I do
"My wife has always made more than I do. It's only ever a problem if sexism is stronger than love of money."

Ian Brett Cooper replied to David Silva's discussion A manly advice to a young man who tries to be manly
"Another option is to just leave her and have nothing more to do with her. No one deserves a mother who wishes her son were dead. If she was my mother, I'd have left her the moment she first said she wished I'd never been born. I would have…"

Banya Men!

Though they aren't common in the United States, Jjimjilbangs, Banyas, Onsens, and Hamams are a great places to hang out.  This is a group for men comfortable in their own skin and appreciate the eastern ideas of public bath houses.See More
