Hello from Norway

Started this discussion. Last reply by Gentleman Engineer Jan 29. 9 Replies

Hi there! I am a 46 year old man from Norway who has been struck by the realization that there are more boys than men out there, even at my age! I was also struck by the realization that my own…Continue

Salt Dragon replied to Saxon's discussion Hello from Norway
"I relate to what your profile and did not realize until I looked at it that you were not American.  My parents were new immigrants to the US from Sweden when I was born, so we likely share some similarities in our culture of origin. …"

Saxon replied to Chris Hamm's discussion Who Wears a Watch Anymore?
"As a lecturer, I find it far less disturbing to my students if I discretely look at my watch than if I pick up my mobile phone to check the time. Aside from that, a watch and a ring are more or less the only manly jewellery, so wear your watch with…"

Saxon replied to Sean's discussion So, what do you sing? in the group Manly Singers
"Like you, I am a baritenor, with emphasis on the tenor. My singing range is C#2-E5, but my comfort range is narrower (currently roughly G2-G4). I like the "singing" styles of singing, the styles that focus upon the actual art of song. That…"

Saxon replied to Jay Maxwell's discussion post your suit and discuss those of others in the group Suits
"Your suit is a bit difficult to see properly, Jay, both because it's dark and because the picture is backlit. From what I see, it looks like a good fit with sliiiiightly too much material in front of the shoulders, and perhaps a somewhat…"

Saxon replied to Jay Maxwell's discussion post your suit and discuss those of others in the group Suits
"It looks good, but now I am curious: what kind of performance?"

Saxon replied to Jay Maxwell's discussion post your suit and discuss those of others in the group Suits
"Yes indeed. They know how to balance fitting with that little room to move. It fits really nice. As for chest and shoulders: One thing, though, is that I pulled my shoulders slightly back when measuring, which means the suit is the perfect fit…"

Saxon replied to Shawn's discussion Has Taylor of Old Bond Street sandalwood changed? in the group Real Shaving
"I read something about the formulas of at least some of the Bond Street firms changing so as not to use animal fats. I do‘nt remember if that included Taylor, but maybe this shows that they have changed?"

Saxon replied to Matthew Perry's discussion Where to start a collection? in the group Fountain Pens
"Having tried out a few hundred fountain pens, I was left unimpressed by MontBlanc. They are simply not writing tools, but rather fashion accessories that look better in your shirt pocket than in your hand."

Saxon replied to Matthew Perry's discussion Where to start a collection? in the group Fountain Pens
"You can't go wrong with a Cross pen. I would also recommend a rather odd one out, the Lamy Persona. Lamy isn't your typical high-end pen maker, rather the opposite in fact, but they made this one exquisite gem which I would recommend very…"

Saxon replied to Izzy's discussion What board game are you playing right now? in the group Analog Gaming Society!
"Live play at KGS seems to be better for developing, but I rarely have time for live play, so it's more turn based. I've been stuck in the 10-12 kyu range for some years now, though, so that might be telling."

John Muir replied to Todd McFarland's discussion The Little Things
"I'm a French press devotee myself. Best appliance I ever got for the kitchen was a hot water dispenser. It puts out near-boiling water (205 degrees), so I can just fill up the press and go to town - no heating water.  It's a…"

Salt Dragon replied to Todd McFarland's discussion The Little Things
"1) Reminding my sons that I love them only to be chided that they already know. 2) Waking up with lucid dreams and/or an erection. 3) Making French press coffee. 4) Getting on the train to work on weekdays. 5) Reading a good line or hearing a good…"

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

"Since you only braced the bottom, I suggest you put some weight on the upper half and see if you are still satisfied with its stability before you make the other three shelves."

Hike on Saturday

I love hiking.  I usually go alone, or with my dog.  The solitude and peace "up there" is, for me, unmatched in the world.Here's a GoPro video link if you want to follow me along. Warning: It is 20 minutes long and 3GB.https://www.dropbox.com/s/8vz5u717yr8u03e/South%20Mountain%20%282017%29.mp4?dl=0See More

"Interesting list of arts.  I don't agree that all of these are necessary for a man to learn, but hey, neither is Minecraft and I enjoy it in my downtime.  I look forward to your next post."
