""Has anyone cut out the coffee even though you only drink one cup of joe a day? Have you noticed a large difference, that over shadows the benefit of just one cup?".
Coffee is more of a routine for me (I don't…"
"I catch up on nerdy shows and movies, I eat bad and/or weird food, I'll do a major purge of clothes and stuff (she freaks out if she sees me do it when she's around), I'll run errands that I know she's not into, etc. In the past…"
"Fair enough but it still seems excessive, even for rural folks. I wouldn't buy a third car because one day, my two cars would start. With that logic I could just as easily justify buying a fourth car as insurance in case my other three break…"
There are two approaches to consider:
1. Learn the one that you're most likely to actually use
2. Learn the one that interests/stimulates/motivates you the most
That being said, if you get the hang of one,…"
""If the people in Muslim countries were really interested in getting rid of ISIS don't you think they'd do so? We have Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, and Syria all with semi-modern weaponry and with standing armies but I don't…"
A few years ago, a Canadian comedian did a "man on the street" comedy special called "Talking To Americans", wherein he asked random people as well as prominent American politicians (including G.W. Bush) how they…"
""I think a guy needs 3 vehicles: A pick-up truck, a dressy car, and a commuter car."
That seems excessive to me. The average city dweller and suburbanite doesn't need all that. I could see how a contractor or tradesman might want a…"
""Point is, you can get a reliable car that's older, and a better value, than that."
When I sold my 10-year-old Toyota Echo hatchback, it was cosmetically near mint and the only thing that it needed was a new battery and…"
Can I ask you a question? what does this description of a Tai Chi mean? The whole martial arts thing is so varied that I honestly am not sure what to take from that description.
"Tai Chi Chuan translates to “Grand Ultimate Fist” and is an internal form of martial arts. This Chen style is based on the theory of yin & yang and the philosophy of Chinese medicine. In traditional Chinese martial arts there are both outdoor and indoor teaching methods. The form taught at VMAA is an indoor or family form received in Tai Chi Chuan men’s tradition."
Saw your post over at Christian men. Not a member, so I thought I'd leave a quick comment here. Mark Shea covered this a few days ago, here. Short version: The media gets almost everything the last two popes have been saying wrong.
"Any time there is a life-stage difference, it's not healthy (though there are always exceptions).
Therefore, 17 and 15 is unhealthy, as they are in different schools, often. Different mindsets, etc.
19 and 17 are not healthy, one is…"
"There are often opportunities with change.
If the I groups are "tribes" then perhaps a monthly gathering of the tribes (I Groups) would create the community men are looking for. I'd be cool offering my place for gathering. Also I…"
"Sorry for the ludicrous delay in responding. "Being a college town, rents are high even for dumps, so I don't see this sort of collective house sustaining itself for very long."
Houses have gone on for years. Kids who move out tend…"
