Mark replied to Benjamin M.'s discussion Self defense for men only
"Really? Could you please show me where you got that information? I have seen many shows and read many articles on it, and it seems to be one of the best self defense techniques to learn. "

Mark replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"I'm eighteen years old, and I wear watches. I feel naked when I don't wear one. I wear watches for both fashion and function. The watches I have though are not loud or bright colored. I have an all black watch that I wear with athletic…"

"She's wrong.  Her set of clippers only had guards that go up to a #5, but that's not true for all.  After #12, some even start in with letters. http://www.amazon.com/Wahl-Clipper-Attachments-Guide-Combs/dp/B000FL6HEC   And,…"

"Sorry, I forgot to check back in on this post. At Supercuts, they used to use clippers on my hair, but it always cut too short, and I was using number 5 clippers. I asked the lady if she could go longer, but she said that clippers only went to…"

Nolan Poulson replied to Mark's discussion Questions about the Barbershop in the group The Barbershop
"@ B.A. thanks for the insight.  I agree and I think you nailed it with the fact that it takes conversation.  My barber does scissor over comb on top and clippers on the sides, with clippers over comb to blend it. "

Chuck Knight replied to Mark's discussion Questions about the Barbershop in the group The Barbershop
"Just out of curiosity, why were you so insistent he use scissors?  I mean, the idea is to make your hair shorter than it is.  Why does it matter, so much to you, which tool he uses to accomplish that?   Clippers are generally used to…"

Questions about the Barbershop

I read the Art of Manliness article about reviving the barbershop. After I was done reading it, I went to the barbershop in my town, and the barber had me sit down and asked me what I wanted. I told him that I would like my hair scissored; the barber immediately grabbed his clippers and was about to run them through my my hair when I had him stop. I asked him that I wanted scissors, and his whole attitude changed toward me. He rudely told me that he only used clippers, and he grabbed me out of…See More

"http://slatestarcodex.com/2014/05/12/weak-men-are-superweapons/ Also, big claims elicit big opposing claims.  As Orwell noted, specifics are less likely to deceive.  Good reason to avoid specifics?  I would hope not."
