  1. It's interesting that you're asking how long the Dems will be willing to hold out, but why aren't you asking about the republicans? People forget that in a negotiation, one side gives up something and the next side reciprocates to come in the middle. In this case the democrats have started that process by passing republican bills. The ball is in the GOP's court right now. It's on them to make the next move in negotiations rather than just sit there like a sack of potatoes.

    To be a man

    I've never understood the compulsion for this kind of behavior from certain guys. There are better ways for me to amuse myself and others and demonstrate friendship than by picking on other people. Plus, it's that kind of **** that programs men to keep from expressing their vulnerabilities and getting help or support. It creates an emotional history/feedback loop whereby showing vulnerability equates to being mocked and called some version of weak.

    2019 Comprehensive Draft Thread

    I fully expect Bruce Allen to mortgage our future picks away to save his ass in the now. Hopefully they switch his Coors with everclear and he ends up being too drunk to find the phone and make the trade on draft day.

    Pfft, you can still cry and show emotion and be a man. It’s not about crying or not crying, it’s about not crumbling during trying times when people are depending on you. Get your **** done and make things better and you can cry whenever the hell you want and still be masculine. To be afraid to cry because of what others might think, leads you away from confident and healthy masculinity. Also, men are emotional as ****. They just suck at understanding and recognizing/verbalizing their emotions so project unto women that their the “emotional ones”. We’re all emotional, we just get emotional about different ****.

    Have you ever smoked Weed before???

    That link shows only 28% of smokers were affected with a lower sperm count and lower sperm concentration. They didn't give a percentage for differences of sperm morphology, but they did say that if you want to have a kid and you smoke to hold off 3 months prior and it should no longer be affecting your system. Effects on testosterone were does dependent and no long-lasting harmful effects were found in this area. So, not too troubling personally.

    Are you talking about the sperm one? That also stated that the effects of these changes are unknown and it is unconfirmed whether marijuana is even causing these changes and if the changes are permanent.

    The article you quoted, doesn't have any negative findings attached with them. They just show an enlargement of gray matter in the brain which they're not even sure if it's a good or bad thing or even strongly related to the ingestion of marijuana.

    It's amazing to me how much we judge others on manliness, based on how we handle tension. Tension is one of the most honest mirrors for where you are as a man. How we handle it, the automatic behaviors we show in the presence of tension. And it's for all kinds of tension, the tension before a fight or disagreement, the tension during negotiations and social situations, and even sexual tension.

    To be a man

    I learned a long time ago that in order to be the man I could be, I had to work to be more than what we all think a man is. What I mean by that, is trying to "be a man" at certain stages of development often risks being locked into limitations or what I call masculinity traps, because masculinity as it is currently envisioned is tainted by the flaws of those who are currently modeling it's paradigm. It is only by going beyond masculinity, by meeting it and beating it, that you get above it and see which parts are toxic or limiting and get the clarity to create a better version of it. A goldilocks version of masculinity. A man fully developed and individuated, with high capability and synergy rationally, emotionally, socially, sexually, spiritually, and instinctually.
  12. I'm a tough love fan. I'm past the anger and depression, I've reached acceptance and now it's stepping back and letting the spoiled prodigal son crash and burn, and hopefully learn from his mistakes before I let him get close again.

    Watching the NFL playoffs

    What the eagles do with Alshon Jeffrey is what we should be doing with Josh Doctson. Throwing him jump balls and making him go above the rim on his catches. With our luck he’d probably blow up with them compared to playing here for us.

    Nice, I almost got some mimosa earlier but ended up with some other flavors. I love some good Durban poison. But I guess everybody does since there are so many different versions of Girl Scout cookies. I don’t know if any other strain of weed has as many combinations as GSC. I just tried some stuff called Black Lime Cookies (Black Lime Special Reserve x Thin Mints) and that tasted amazing. Maybe ill roll a j one day with as many different types of GSC as I can fit in it.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    Prison bathrooms are better than jail bathrooms actually. Jail is usually some ****ty metal bowl in your cell (Alexandria Jail) or you're sitting there in the open air taking a **** in front of everyone, because they got 5 toilet bowls in the common area (Orange County, VA Jail).
