Joey R replied to Stephen Jashub Comstock's discussion Looking for a new cologne.
"Haha, I'm genuinely curious though...what is it about cologne that makes it so ridiculously expensive? Can you imagine spending $100 for any other liquid besides fine liquor?"

Joey R replied to Stephen Jashub Comstock's discussion Looking for a new cologne.
"Here's the real question I have...why is cologne so expensive? As far as recommendations go, I do like the way Terre D'Hermes smells but like everyone says, you don't know until you actually wear it."

Leading a Fulfilling Daily Life

Hello everyone, It's been a bit since I've been on AOM, but I've got something I wanted to get some input on from all of you, and I've found this forum to be a great source of ideas and feedback for me.Bottom line up front: I need help coming up with stuff to do to keep me busy, but will also be fulfilling and help me develop intellectually or in any other way.Background: I've got what a lot of people would consider an exciting, cool life. I'm an officer in the Army Reserve, with a great unit.…See More

Biggles?

Anyone here ever read Biggles, by Cpt. WE Johns? I read the books more than any other books when I was a kid. Biggles taught me more about being a man than anyone else, real or fictional. Had about half of the 95 or so books that were written. Favorites were the WW1 ones, but they were all good.
