Mohan replied to Jack Bauer's discussion What'cha watchin'? Your manly entertainment recommendations, reviews and discussions ...
"One of my favorites is Blue Bloods on CBS.  It is about a family of cops who are tough, nose to the grindstone.  The topics are real day to day stuff, and what's more, it has 80s tough guy Tom Selleck playing Dad/Commissioner of…"

"My thanks to all of you. I think all I've read touches upon what Regular Joe said, change "procreation" to "parenting". Parenting, raising children to be citizens of this world, doesn't necessarily require giving birth…"

"Agreed.  However, If you still feel that absolute need to work with some form of "procreation" why not start coaching little leagues? I know that almost every little league, be it football, baseball, basketball, rugby, golf, tennis,…"

Regular Joe replied to Mohan's discussion The 3 P's
"I would say that it isn't too much of a stretch to say that all of the aforementioned things create the conditions under which procreation is desirable so while he might not be procreating kids of his own, he's contributing towards…"

Jack Bauer replied to Mohan's discussion The 3 P's
"You need to boil this thing down to the basic principles, and work from there.  Once you cut away the trappings ... "provide and protect" is merely a statement that men are better when they're responsible for more than…"

Sean replied to Mohan's discussion The 3 P's
"You can think of procreate in a more abstract way: to leave a little piece of ourselves, hopefully our best part, for someone else to pick up, use, and enjoy, so that when you are gone there are those who will miss, but also be glad that you were…"

Regular Joe replied to Mohan's discussion The 3 P's
"Replace "procreate" with "parent" (as  verb rather than a noun) and the 3 Ps still stand for people who are unable to procreate but wind up adopting, being foster parents, being a de factor surrogate parent in various forms,…"

Will replied to Mohan's discussion The 3 P's
"If childbearing and adoption are both out of the question, but you want children around, you can foster.  It's needed.  Supposedly it's rough. If you can't do that either, well, the world needs parents, but it needs lots of…"

"Some couples can't have kids, simple fact of life. Doesn't make either of you lesser human beings  IMO. Some couples can knock out kids by the dozen and they are shitty, worthless parents, whacking out a few small people isn't…"

The 3 P's

Brett,With regards to Provide, Protect, and Procreate, a tough question. What about those of us, after many years of trying, cannot have children. Health is the reason, and ongoing health issues disqualify us from adoption. Any advice on what to replace the 3P with to create the balanced identity you speak of? seeSee More

Beards

So I grew a pretty nice beard last winter, did not shave the face (did shave the neck) from September to March. It was fairly gnarly by March.  Looking for some good direction on opinions.  Style a beard yourself or pay the $5.00 and have a barber do it?  If you style it yourself, where did you learn and what do you use.  I am a bald guy, short, athletic build.  Just want to look nice with a bald head and beard, I know it can be done.  Look forward to your thoughts.  I have attached a picture…See More
