Hello gentlemen!
You have been awarded your own private club from which you may scorn the local riffraff. If you continue posting at least 25 posts per day for the next two weeks, this will be a permanent board.
If you notice any problems (file sizes, file types) post in this thread. I'm not sure if we want to make this General or SFW, so you can discuss that, too.
Keep it work safe and stay classy.

If I had a choice I'd pick a whole PC to buy. But I must agree with guys above that it's important to know what you're going to take. For example you can check Lenovo H3 Series user manual http://lenovo.manymanuals.com/computers/h3-series/user-manual-20987 to see how good the PC model and how to use it correctly.

Every gentleman needs his drink to settle down after a hard day of work. In my case I like a scottish whisky, preferably single malt and aged a minimum of 10 years to exhibit the right flavors.

What is your spirit of choice /class/?

Speaking as a club member of the happiest colony of them all, Hong Kong, here are my perennial whiskies, starting with the most inexpensive. All but the last are rich in taste (not strong alcoholically) and feature at least subtle ginger or spice notes, and often, butter and/or toast, my favourite notes. The former two are also accessible notes to people new to whisky. None of these are very peaty or smoky, another bias of mine.

1. Famous Grouse. This, the People's Blend of Scotland, is the only good whisky you can buy for less than 100 Hong Kong dollars in the Far East. If you are a dandy on the dole, it is essential. Distinctive biscuity note too.

2. Wild Turkey Rye Whisky. This is the only American mass-market American blend I sip a dram of every now and then, mostly because of its long, buttery finish, and when I feel like rye. If you don't care for either, skip it.

3. Monkey Shoulder. Clearly aimed at those ghastly millennials in marketing terms, but this does not stop the whisky itself from being lovely, with the clearest burnt-toast note. 300-500HKD.

4. Nikka from the Barrel. The best common Japanese blend, very close to M.S. in terms of quality; a tad spicier. Also 300-500HKD.

5. Highland Park, 12-year "Viking" single malt. Now this is a very different beast. The most aromatic, clear, bright taste, a bouquet of wildflowers and herbs by the side of a still, clear loch. Emphatically not spicy or peaty or smoky. 500-600HKD usually, but as it's grossly underrated, it can be found for 300-400HKD. Drink slowly. Do not mix it. HP say correctly that it goes well with Japanese food, though.

6. Bunnahabhain 18-year single malt. The best of what I like. Glorious, complex, rich, adult, with a new note every time you sip it, but with my beloved ginger and spice in particularly well done form, and nuts. The bottle which introduced me to Good Whisky in the first place, so I'm slightly biased, perhaps. Only costs about 1000HKD nonetheless, and thus a perennial in my cabinet.

I recently fell in love with the Old Fashioned. I'm new to bourbon, so I don't yet have a spirit of choice, but I have my ratios of sugar & spice tuned right how I want them.

Good afternoon gents. I am starting into drinking alcohol other than beer and should like to inquire as to what cocktails are acceptable for any self-respecting male to drink?

I believe Manhattans, Martinis, and Sidecars are acceptable, but have no knowledge as to anything else as I am an utter novice in these matters.

Also, I recently purchased 1 and 3/4ths liter of Jagermeister; aside from the so-called Jagerbombs and Jagerade, are there any classier cocktails that could be made, or should I just drink Jager by the shots?

My novice impressions of Jagermeister are that it is rather strong and bitter tasting, but it creates a pleasant burning sensation in the throat and stomach after consumption. It also aids in digestion as an herbal liquor. I find tequila and vodka to be extremely nasty, though the lemon helps the tequila go down better. I cannot compare with other liquors such as whiskey and Gin for I have not tried those before. Would you gentlemen be so kind as to introduce me to new liquors, with reference to aspects such as strength and taste?

Good day fine gents!
I was taking a stroll the other day when I came across a new fencing academy near a local park. I was immediately hypnotized by the beauty of a particularly graceful match, and it got me wondering, what other gentlemanly sports there might be out there?

Good God, ruffians have attempted to hijack this fencing thread and take it to Thugsville, which is a step worse than LoutBurg. Time to correct that. ahem...

I have fenced sabre for nearly ten years. I have been the US National Champion once, and have had the privilege of serving overseas on the US National Team.

Fencing is like playing a first person shooter, but against a physical opponent in hair trigger time. It is exhilarating.

Beginners are welcomed with open arms, as we all remember our first days with a blade. Fencing clubs are also a great way of meeting other very bright individuals. It is very safe, injuries are rare. It's also amazingly good, low impact very high caloric burn exercise. Also, stick with it and you'll develop insanely fast reflexes; not a bad thing when driving a car.

If you have questions, please feel free to ask.

In parting, I leave you with my absolute favorite fencing goods supplier, Leon Paul. I would no more step into combat without Leon Paul equipment than fight naked with only a stick as a weapon.

What about this one https://alertforce.com.au/ohs-health-and-safety-training-courses-sydney/traffic-control/ which one is good for working. I also took it few months ago. Training for traffic management and traffic control is a high risk occupation and one that requires specific training around awareness and management – governed by OHS and WHS compliance.

There are few finer moments in life than when you finally decide, that instead of taking a 2 week break sitting on a beach surrounded by dego's, that you will instead save 2000 of your hard earned beans and spend it on a bottle of the finest St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe A.
Money in pocket you make your way to a local vintners and level with the guy. You tell him that you are dying and that it will be one of the last things you will ever do when you taste a bottle of wine you have saved 2 years to buy. He will not stint you if he thinks you are dying he will grab a dusty bottle of St Emilion 1968
and will offer to deliver it, filtered and decanted, to your home the next day
Upon reciept of the wine, open the decanter, and pour the wine
then put this recording on

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY_H9de3rW4

sit next to the largest window in your house and watch the clouds in the sky pass you by, and then take your first sip just as that track reaches 2 minutes and 6 seconds
As you sip, remember that you are listening to the greatest guitarist the world has ever known. A man who was a friend of Jean Cocteau, a man whose guitar was signed by Pablo Picasso, and a man who was revered by Salvador Dali. Manitas De Plata, a man born to Spanish Gypsies in the south of France. A man who has sold more records than most rock bands and played to bigger audiences than any rock band

I find it amusing how you take something tasteful and classy then sour it with petty lies.

Vintage wine is good wine but travelling half way around the world to drink a bottle of wine from your birth year in the very vinyard it was picked from is classier still.

I am beginner in woodworking but from time to time I DIY different projects for my house and gargae. Recently I used deck sealer from https://woodyexpert.com/best-deck-sealer/ Deck sealer will form a barrier around wood, working deep into the crevices to prevent salts and moisture from aging it prematurely.

I love all the crazy little tools and drillbits they make for the stuff...

Using a penknife is actually pretty fucking effective though
