At my last men's meeting I and the only other regular attendant guy was asked to think about picking our animal names.

During the Mankind Project weekend men are asked to pick such names, along with an adjective or two, which becomes from then on the names they use.

I've been quietly dreading this, because, well, it just seemed so weird to me. At best, something a bunch of middle-aged men longing to resurrect their scouting days would come up with, at its worst the stuff of…

should I help younger brother become smoker?

A SPARTAN- a man must have the strength and fighting ability of a spartan. He must be able to defend his family, home, wealth and property. He must be unwavering in this. He must constantly train to become better.
