Jarrod Chestney-Law replied to Justin Lillich's discussion Explain Faith & Belief
"I was there a long while ago, I guess.  Never had a "believing" bone in my body.  History lessons reinforced it for me.   The one thing I will say, is that there is community outside of church as well, if losing that kind of…"

Jarrod Chestney-Law replied to Regular Joe's discussion Learn a new language for free!
"Awesome work!  I'm almost at Level 11 in French and am finding Duolingo to be one of the best language tools I've come across.  It's not perfect, but it's an excellent way to get to the "vaguely proficient"…"

Jarrod Chestney-Law replied to Tim Buck's discussion Who should you get a professional massage from: male or female?
"I have no issue with either.  I went to a female doctor about something that was definitely male-centric and to be honest, I think she was more awkward about it than me.  As far as I'm concerned, my body is a machine when it's in…"

Jarrod Chestney-Law replied to Gnostic Bishop's discussion Are men financially shooting themselves in the foot by their own misogyny?
"I support my wife, she works and earns the same as the other guys but in no way am I going to side with a movement that has called for the genocide of men and continues to call for curfews for men, advising men not to walk on the same side of the…"

Jarrod Chestney-Law replied to Blair Brown's discussion Video Games: Manly or Non?
"Video games do not dismantle or disfigure storytelling in all cases (there are some abysmal instances...). They build on it, and a world that did not maintain a tradition of storytelling would, in my opinion, by a terribly dull place. A world that…"

Jarrod Chestney-Law replied to Blair Brown's discussion Video Games: Manly or Non?
"I play a few games a year, the few that have a decent story to tell. As a writer, I'm predominantly interested in the story, however, I'm also interested in the way stories are told and how the medium impacts this. Games can be manly or…"

Jarrod Chestney-Law commented on Leah Morrigan's blog post The crime of emotional silencing
""Manhood sounds like a sentence this way."   No, not a sentence for me.  I'm quite happy not expressing emotions etc...and a sentence would be to have to keep talking about how I feel all the time (which would largely…"

Vegetarian Camp Food

Hey all!  New to the forum, but longtime reader of AoM (podcast is awesome on long drives).My wife and I love camping (though with our work schedules, we don't get to do it as often as we want).  She is a vegetarian (just doesn't like the taste of meat - I know, right?)  I'm looking for some good hearty camp food that she would enjoy.  Anyone got any ideas?See More
