The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More

"Say I were to go to a local tobacconist tonight. What should I expect to spend? Trying to go as cheap (but good quality) as possible. Just enough to try and to see if it's something I'd like to get into."

Regular Joe replied to Neil H's discussion Punching bags
"Thanks. It was indeed a hasty reply. And there's no disrespect towards boxing implied, either. I think boxing is extremely impressive. It's just that, having done muay thai and pradal serey, it's impossible for me not think of…"

Regular Joe replied to Neil H's discussion Punching bags
"It's not so much about weight; It's more about overall density. It also depends on what type of martial art / combat sport you want your workout to be based on. If it's boxing, the bag will be shorter and stouter than if it were muay…"

"Semi-poisonous bean.  Char it, grind it, run water through the ashes -- same way they make lye -- and drink the runoff. If I had to drink coffee, I'd do it the homeopathic way."
