Knut Haugland, RIP

Posted on January 1, 2010 at 1:48pm 0 Comments

Just a short blog entry from me, but i wanted to mention the passing of Knut Haugland, last surviving member of the Kon Tiki expedition of 1947. Also one of the heroes of Telemark during WWII. Definitely an inspirational character for the Art of Manliness. Obituary here- http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/dec/30/knut-haugland-obituary

Just celebrating breaking back into the top 50 manliest men. Whoop whoop. Don't know if it was really worth the pain of my break-up to afford me the time to contribute so much to the community, but there you go... Every cloud...? (Only kidding, I'm so lonely and want her back... oi vei...)

Self-Defense Without Guns

This situation is going to take some detailing, so please bear with me.I live in Taiwan, where civilians cannot own firearms.  Crime here is almost zero, violent crime is basically zero.  Its one of the safest places to be.  There's also security cameras everywhere in the cities.  However, the little violent crime that there is ... is of a pretty frightening character.The problem is corruption.  While random crime like home invasion, convenience store robbery, drug crime, road rage etc. is…See More
