"When I turned 16 I decided to let myself grow a soul patch combined with a goatee. I loved how it made me older. Back then ordering a drink never required showing my ID, but when I was clean cut, suddenly they asked. :p Aah well now I'm a…"
"The current status is that a PhD might make it harder for you to find a job. The son of a distinguished researcher in Canada that I know had a PhD, got no jobs with his PhD ... but when he disguised it as "research project", and only…"
"A PhD is a *lot* of work, but it is also a very interesting project. Weigh it against other things in your life. If you have a wife ... well, make sure you have a wife when you finish your PhD; they tend to wear down marriages."
"I would say, that a true tailor should be able to size from the second they lay eyes on you. Without any imput from you, they should know what to do to make you look good.

"That's no way for a much loved pet/companion to live...you absolutely did the right thing IMO.

"I'd go for a more classic cut personally, and something far less shiny.
I have a suit that is similar to yours, it's cut in a more tailored style as opposed to the extreme slim cut of yours, but it's something I'd only wear for…"
"Good call. Actually college and drinking go together remarkably well. It sounds like you guys have a difference in values. Finish it up now before you both become miserable. Move on, find a nice quiet girl who doesn't drink,…"
"I had assumed that was a joke, Herb!
We always used to say we hoped and prayed the school would burn down so we wouldn't have to go -- because it was torture, man! Not a joke I'd make in current circumstances, tho."
"Hey, Rob, The Bible says:
3. For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our…"
