Mark Sanderson replied to Joseph Robert's discussion Awkward circumstance with my son
"Actually sounds like a great father/son bonding moment. I would have been extremely awkward with my dad in that situation, especially at 13. I got the "talk" from my dad the summer before middle school. While he didn't go into much…"

"I think many of us had similar experiences growing up, which is why this story resonates with some of us, including myself.  I also grew up in a religious household, and while I appreciate that, one of the few negative things it brought about…"

Joseph Robert replied to Brandon's discussion Why are people satisfied with mediocrity? What happened to aspirations of greatness?
"I think many are lazy. We live in a world which does not encourage hard work. There are no winners or losers anymore. Tax codes discourage upward advancement. Government handouts to enable slothful living don't help. Most guys want to be great…"
