"Well I have the luxury of living in one of the most beautiful areas in not only Michigan but the entire US...Good old Marquette! I do miss Lake Michigan (I grew up in Escanaba) but the natural beauty of the Marquette area is hard to beat. As for…"
"Buck is a true legend of the game. Without a doubt my favourite All Black captain of my life time. Lead from the front, hard as nails, proud and passionate. The last Great from the amateur days before money turned players into athletic contractors.…"
"That was a big reason SpikeTV aired League games, they thought that it was closer to the pace and action of football and thought it would catch on here better. Above all though I have recently started finding myself looking for more 7s matches to…"
"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
"I always wanted to see "The Navidson Record" from Mark Danieleweski's "House of Leaves". I don't think the whole book itself would be a great movie but the part of the story that references the ficitonal movie about a…"
"First off one would have to define good or evil (which is a whole new topic in itself) An evil deed can be thought of as a good deed, the means justifying the ends and other sorts of things. Honestly I believe that man is inherently selfish as is…"
"We just are. Nothing is inherently good or evil. We regularly commit evil and good acts, and whatever types of acts constitutes the majority of your character is how you will be described.
"Good and bad are but names very readily transferable…"
"I believe that man has some darkness in it. Man's definitely got basic drives and instincts and maybe that's where evil is. Although, sometimes I think that evil can be incredibly rational and systematic...that thought has been in my head…"
"I think that we are inherently good, but incredibly susceptible to evil. I've never met an evil baby nor have I ever met a man that hasn't in some way been corrupted or had his innocence stolen by the world we live in.

"I got an understanding of how terrible love can be. You wish you hated those people, the ones you love, because you know the things the world will do to them, because you have done some of those things yourself. It's crazy-making, yet you cling to them with everything and close your eyes against the rest of it. But still you wake up late at night and lie there listenenig for the creak and splash of oars, the clank of steel, the sounds of men rowing towards your home."
It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group. My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop. See More
Though they aren't common in the United States, Jjimjilbangs, Banyas, Onsens, and Hamams are a great places to hang out. This is a group for men comfortable in their own skin and appreciate the eastern ideas of public bath houses.See More
"I'm a huge fan, always have been, and likely always will be. In fact, I've posted Richard as an example of manliness, repeatedly. It's usually met with dismissiveness by all but the few who understand his back story."
"These are terrific and wonderful stories. Thanks for their discussion. I knew my own grandfathers, but not well. They were both "old school" where children were supposed to "sit down, shut up and do what they are told"! My…"
