Hello from Norway

Started this discussion. Last reply by Shane Nov 14, 2012. 3 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

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."

"Go. Also known as Wei Qi or Baduk. The oldest still popular board game."

Saxon replied to Marvin's discussion What would be considered physically weak? in the group Exercise
"There are several different schools of training, and definitions of "strong", but I am pretty old school and think you should focus on basic, functional strength. Could you survive a week of old-fashioned farm work? Then you are…"

Saxon replied to Douglas Aldrich's discussion Trouble with straight razor in the group Real Shaving
"4k is OK for a kitchen knife, but not sufficient for a face razor. 8k-12k-16k-maybe even 30k would be far better. You should also finish up by stropping it. Do also check your shaving technique. Axe salesmen of old managed to shave with the axes…"

Shane replied to Rob's discussion Paying for your own harassment and ritual humiliation
"Doesn't matter if it's a trend or not. Bullshit is bullshit. That any one person thought this was ok is a problem. That an administration thought it was ok is a definite problem. This is a problem which needs kicked in the nuts before it…"

"Second ... isn't most anti-discrimination policy built 'for the 1 out of 100,000' (give or take)?  It is explicitly for the protection of minorities -- the fewer the better.  I have a hard time thinking special…"

Jack Bauer replied to Rob's discussion Paying for your own harassment and ritual humiliation
"The 'policy' of not intentionally punishing the innocent is hardly "built for the 1 out of 100,000".  It's a pretty fundamental policy of American jurisprudence.  It's the basis of warrant law, search and…"
