The Great Debate

"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

This is the thread where you can post pictures, progress, or stories about manly skills you learned and put to work from AoM! My first thing is I'm going to restore an old Axe Head that I dug up a couple years ago when I…See More
