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
"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…"

"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…"
"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…"
"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?"
"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.
"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…"
"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."
"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…"
"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…"
I just wanted to tell y'all about a company I truly believe in. They're called Leather Works Minnesota. They make high quality leather goods such as wallets, belts, key fobs, etc. They are a family owned and run business and make everything by hand in America using high quality leather. In fact, the leather they use is from S.B. Tannery; Which are the same people that make Red Wing boots. Leather Works MN is very reputable and offers great quality products with excellent customer service.…See More
"Man, I don't fit in anywhere in that model. Born in Germany of American parents, raised in France, lived in Northern Virginia, Arizona, Vermont. Became Canadian. Spent much time Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Honduras.
"More on the Trump phenomenon.
Noonan: Trump's popularity crosses ethnic lines and party lines, and we should have seen it coming: he's a phenomenon of the divide between the elite and the common people. (And, yes, I see…"
"Garcia-Quintana as a name for a white supremacist doesn't surprise me.
Especially since he considers himself to be a Hidalgo instead of an Indio.
From what I've heard, the old-time upper class "Spaniards" in the Americas (los…"
"Unfortunately, the wikipedia article is what my workplace calls a "data dump." It's a lot of unconnected, but similar figures, with no direct correlation between national data sets, and differing individual data sources within…"
"I've been doing pull ups consistently for a year and a half now. I started with doing barely 5-6, now I can do about 20 or so (body weight). For me, doing weighted pull ups (using a barbell plate fixed to a weight belt secured around my waist)…"
