"A similar channel to check out is CutleryLover, who does a lot of EDC videos and knife reviews. If you want guns, try checking out hickok45. His videos are very informative, but also quite lengthy. I'd also suggest checking out VSauce and…"

Thomas replied to Lynn Jones's discussion What is a manly job for 15 year olds
"Look to your local park district for a job. Summer's coming to an end, so umpiring/reffing baseball and soccer is probably a no go, but I'm sure if there's an indoor league somewhere, you can apply to ref for youth soccer games. "

Thomas replied to Williams's discussion Great finds at yard sales or flea markets?
"Another great find is cast iron cookware. It's the best way to cook food, and also can turn out a bit of profit. Hunting craigslist for wood stoves is a good move to make in the summer months, where you can get them cheap and hold on to them…"

Thomas replied to Williams's discussion Great finds at yard sales or flea markets?
"Garage/Yard sales are my biggest summer bonding events with my father. Usually, we look out for vintage speakers, receivers, and turntables, as well as vinyl. It's sort of a hobby of ours to restore and fix broken stereo equipment, and…"

Thomas replied to William James's discussion Needing Ideas for a Pool Tournament!
"A deck of cards can go a long way at a party. Whether you're playing a casual game with friends, or playing a bit more competitively for money or any sort of prize, I feel that plenty of card games will fit right in with your event."

"Welcome! Lacrosse is a good, manly sport. I used to play myself actually. It's a great outlet to just be a man; perhaps you don't see that now but you will in hindsight. I hope you enjoy the sport like I did! See you around the forums!"

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More

Admiring aspects of times of oppression

I was having a conversation with a woman today and I made a positive comparison to the style and composition of women in the Antebellum South. An African-American lady overheard me speaking and became extremely angry that I made a positive reference to a time when her ancestors were enslaved. I asked her if she thought the bubonic plague was the only thing going on before the European Renaissance, then I asked her if taxes would be the only reason an American would have stayed loyal to Britain…See More
