Hey all, So, I am in the process of exiting the military (not by choice, and not for discipline either). So naturally I've been putting my resume out there online (since the area I'm moving to is not…Continue
"I wouldn't necessarily go so far as to say men are expendable... It's more, in my view, a construct that was built in Western Society an extremely long time ago, perhaps the Greeks, or Roman eras..
It's this idea that it is somehow…"
"Definitely... When I was stationed in Germany it almost seemed like a polar opposite.. it just seemed like there was sex everywhere which isn't entirely accurate, but felt true when comparing it to us here in the US.
"Well, I hope to go "out" in such a way that the Valkyries notice me and take me to my proper place...
As for funeral arrangements, I've told my wife repeatedly, I want an "Irish wake" (so lots of booze), a bonfire/viking…"
"Without knowing the specifics of your situation, let me just say this: If you don't have a formal background in investments or insurance and it's mostly these types of companies that are reaching out to you for jobs, it's almost…"
Hey all, So, I am in the process of exiting the military (not by choice, and not for discipline either). So naturally I've been putting my resume out there online (since the area I'm moving to is not the area I'm currently in) and gotten a few calls/emails back. Thing is, most of these are from various Insurance/investment companies. (regardless the company, almost ALL are requiring the Life insurance license, Series 7/66, etc.) My question is more along the lines of, is this really…See More
"Now, take this with a grain of salt, I'm happily average in height... But, recently my wife lost her ID card on my side of it, so I fully "extended" the drivers' seat on our Subaru Outback. I can honestly say that I can't…"
"Cigars are the "manly cigarette" option. When done properly, you won't have a "habit" that needs fulfilled (maybe the habit becomes meeting with people on a certain night, rather than the "need" to smoke)"
"I bet if you presented her the choice between Disneyworld and "Eroticworld" (hey there has to be an adult "theme park" out there somewhere, right?) she'd go for Disney.
Honestly, I've no idea why anyone WOULDN'T…"
"They ask where you live for the same reasons why I, as a vet cannot give blood for a certain period of time. If you have lived in certain places on this great Earth, you may have contracted some other disease unrelated to STDs from various bugs."
"As I'm currently discussing this with the wife, she has pointed out, they no longer ask if you've had sexual contact with a man, but rather if you've had multiple partners at any given time.
But, nice try. Again."
"But just because you disagree with it, does that give you, or I any right to say "that should not be shown"?? Ultimately, Disney is out to make a buck, and they quite clearly believe that showing a random lesbian couple as a non-main…"
"This reply is more directed at JonEdanger:
They may not be sages, but they do take people as they come, not as you, or I, or society wish them to be through some rose tinted glasses, and a damn shade more tolerant of other views on life to some…"
"I believe that you feel you are teaching right from wrong. I did not intend to come across as hostile. But, I feel that there are much bigger fish to fry with Disney, than whether they depict a homosexual couple or not. As the father of a young…"
"True, but what right do you have, to tell other parents what their children should be, or are ready/able to "handle"?? I'd rather my kids grow up being tolerant and respectful of others' lifestyles and religions, even if they are…"
"I bought the Rolls in an antique shop for less than $20 and it came with two blades. I use it once a week, and have sharpened it and strop it regularly following advice on the rolls website. At best it performs like a worn out double edge. Not…"
"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
