Michael M. replied to Louis S's discussion Packin' Heat (Or, why do you carry a handgun?)

Michael M. replied to Ajay Chahar's discussion Smoking
"Nicotine is a highly addictive drug and I personally think there's nothing manly or proper about being an addict. A lot of casual smokers smoke far more than they admit to, and a lot of people that don't smoke but a few cigs a day or week…"

Michael M. replied to Benjamin's discussion What gun should we get for home defense?
"My recommendation: a pistol grip pump shotgun, such as the Benelli Supernova. The pistol grip makes the shotgun a bit easier to control, and feels more natural shooting from the hip. It makes the shotgun handle more like an assault rifle, and…"

"I do carry the mini Swiss Army in my front pocket, but I also conceal a rather horrifying pair of fighting knives on my belt. The Mini Swiss has all I need for utility: nail file, scissors, tweezers, a toothpick, and a small blade for the simplest…"

Michael M. replied to Matt H's discussion Decent set of shoes for a college student

Michael M. replied to RM's discussion Any ideas of jobs/opportunities to travel (with US or abroad) and meet and interact with a lot of people from different backgrounds
"Consider Healthcare IT consulting. The field is expanding and the companies that hire HIT contractors take good care of their people (wages in $40+/hr range, paid travel and expenses). The work itself is not particularly exciting, but you get to…"

Michael M. replied to Ayden Dijkstra's discussion What's your manly morning routine?
"My routine is fairly basic. The time I wake up is largely based on what time I have to be at work.I usually get up with the intention of giving myself an hour to get ready. If I don't have to work, I sleep in. I do love to sleep. The first…"

Michael M. replied to Justin Cook's discussion Got any cool ancestors
"I'm a descendant of John Sevier. He was a General in the American Revolution and the first governor of Tennessee. Probably the most interesting member of my past, but I hope to look a bit further back one of these days and see what else I can…"

Michael M. replied to Eddie's discussion Commando or Briefs
"Underwear has practical applications. If I'm doing anything athletic, I'm gonna need to wear some (black) briefs to prevent the boys from flapping around like a couple of paddle balls on a string. When I'm just chilling or going about…"

Michael M. replied to David F.'s discussion New Study Estimates Neonatal Circumcision Death Rate Higher Than Suffocation and Auto Accidents
"About 100 babies die per year from it. I don't see that as a healthcare problem at all. More people probably die per year from government mandated vaccinations."

Michael M. replied to Umar Mansuri's discussion Self-defense
"I have very little actual fighting experience, but I'm good at staying out of and avoiding dangerous situations. This is the best advice I can give: Maintain constant awareness of your environment. Be paranoid, even. It is my nature to…"

Christmas Traditions

This year we went into the mountains and cut down our own Christmas tree. This has been a fun tradition, everything from getting up @3:00am to go get the permit to getting stuck in the snow and have to rely on shovels, sweat, ingenuity, and kind strangers to get unstuck. What are some of the other Christmas traditions y'all enjoy?
