"I was just in Los Angeles  for a 3-day solo vacation over MLK weekend.  One thing I wanted to do was make it a bit of a spa sampler as it's winter and good men's spas don't really exist in the Midwest.  I went…"

"Yeah, I had the idea when I read the comics because a lot of real world locations were used in the books. Because of that, my interest was piqued in Toronto's coolness... and then there's also Nirvana the Band the Show."

"A Scott Pilgrim tour might be one of the coolest ideas I've ever heard. If you seriously do this and want some company, or someone to go halves hotel/rental car. you let me know. I've never actually tried a banya/jimmijab, but i'd be…"

"I'd so be down with this.  This place sounds great.  Staying there would be cheaper than a hotel.  Plus, I've been wanting to visit Toronto to do a Scott Pilgrim tour for some time now.  :)"

"Drew, there's really no rule book out there. The first time I went to a banya, I was a bit hesitant myself. Sweatlodge is a great place to try it out. Everyone was really helpful. I think the regulars knew it was my first time, and gave me…"

"Very interesting photograph. It seems that you wished to convey meaning, and it does convey meaning to me. It sort of asks/answers "What is it to be a man?""

Mongoose replied to Mongoose's discussion Muscle-Enhancing Shirt in the group Exercise

Wild Man replied to Mongoose's discussion Muscle-Enhancing Shirt in the group Exercise
"I actually like the round next myself, but what I think is more important is how the shirt fits on the arms. A tighter shirt around the shoulders and arms is what I look for and it is more important in accenting the upper body"
