Hey guys,My hair is pretty thin and wavy. I get it cut: tapered on the sides and long up top so I can attempt that 60s Mad Men style hair.   The problem is, when I put the Pomade in and style it with…Continue

"The military isn't going to make you any more of a man than being John Wayne dude. Don't join because you have something to prove to yourself or to fill a void; it is not a proving ground. It's for people that want to serve. There are…"

"Joining the military when you have a son is probably not a good idea. It will separate you two for some time. It has the potential to separate you for a long time. Then you won't be around at all to teach him things.  Take some boxing…"

"Hey, longtime lurker here but first time posting anything. Just had to pop on here to say this is a brilliant write-up, MGM. Short, to the point and seems like a great blueprint to get started on new projects. Thanks!"

"Buddy I’ll shoot straight with you. It sounds like you’re depressed. Depressed because you didn’t live up to your own standard of excellence. First you need to sit down and write down what experiences would make you feel happy and…"

J. Andres replied to Nerdbeast's discussion less of a man.
"Joining the military is always an option, I suppose. Each truly worthwhile profession will have its strengths, though. That is (it seems to me) an academic will be very literate because of his job, whereas a soldier may have to work extra on that,…"

"You are romanticizing  the military.  You chose a different path.  It should not take a particular event to make you a "man".  It is about how you conduct your interactions with people and things.…"

Nate Thallas replied to Nerdbeast's discussion less of a man.
"Well said! In fact, an alternate idea may appeal to you. In addition to the armed forces (and their unarmed branches), there are numerous civilian para-military organizations that can not only provide you with a sense of accomplishment and…"

"I came to the same sheltered dweeb revelation much later, around age 47. Because of that I have way less options than you; if you feel you must enlist do it now, years have a way of flying by."

"Pride and such is fine. But the military does not make the man. If it is what your heart tells you is right, more power to you. You could also consider joining the national guard, and serve your country in a very direct fashion."

"I cannot be certain, but I suspect the frustration I have felt in the criminal justice system is comparable. It is not only inefficient, but at times borders on the farcical."

"I concur with salt. If it's a traumatic event we are discussing, then I would say take the steps you need to put it behind you. In other words, if you cannot alter it then it's probably best to drive on...just my humble opinion."
