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.

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?

Personally speaking I am of the opinion that there is only one spirit you'll really ever need for the rest of your life and that is rum. That's not to say you shouldn't try others. Indeed you should. But it always behooves a gentle person to have a deeper specialized understanding of their pastimes and pleasures, and as far as alcohol goes rum is both a good starting and ending point for said inquiry.

Rum is the most palatable imbibed solo (as far as spirits are concerned. Liqueurs are obviously much more flavorful but that is comparing apples and oranges)

It also has some simple, elegant, and delicious pairings in cocktails
Mojito - lime, mint, syrup, sparkling water, white rum
*add brown sugar and dark rum for a twist. Add angostura bitters for even more twist.
Cuba Libre - lime, coca cola (made with real cane sugar), dark rum
Macuá - lime, orange, guava, syrup, white or dark rum

Skip the more garish tiki choices such as the Piña Colada or the Mai Tai, although never rule out any cocktail on principle... in the hands of the right bartender even the tackiest of drinks can be salvaged into something intelligent and refreshing.

Do yourself a favor and invest in something a little better than Bacardi or Captain Morgans (shudders). Doesn't need to be super fancy as long as it has some age to it. 4-5 years minimum. My personal favorite is Ron Flor de Caña (Nicaragua) although I have heard Ron Botran (Guatemala) Ron Abuelo (Panama) and Ron del Barrilito (Puerto Rico) are also solid choices.

Silly me. I forgot to mention the daiquiri. The classic type. Not the modern 711 slushee inspired version.

Also, if you are looking for something a little off the beaten path and like smokey flavors you should try mescal as an alternative to tequila. It's mostly for sipping although I imagine it would mix well in a mule (lime and ginger beer, served in a copper mug)

OP, Jagermeister is not an acceptable drink for a respectable man. Jagermeister is a frat boy's drink.

A well-rounded man should be able to enjoy a quality tipple of any hard liquor. Quality matters - cheap tequila or whiskey is worse than dishwater. Liqueurs are for mixing or aperitifs, not to be drunk straight except on Christmas morning. The ability to appreciate and distinguish between single malt whiskys is indispensible - you can wax poetic about your drink of choice, but if you're not a whisky man you'll never be quite "top shelf".

The key to being a respectable drinker (which critics often overlook) is to have a "nose" for liquor. This means having a physiology sufficiently adapted to alcohol that you can see past the "kick" of the alcohol and register more subtle flavours. As a neophyte drinker, when you describe tequila and vodka as both "extremely nasty" you are having an objectively different experience than I would have with the same drinks - there's a whole complexity of flavour there that you're simply not equipped to taste.

The key to acquiring the taste is to drink high-proof stuff in moderation over a long period. I recommend purchasing a mid-range blended Scotch whiskey and a bottle of Drambuie. Mix half-and-half over ice - this makes a duo called a Rusty Nail, which is sweeter than whisky but just as strong. Over time, adjust the proportions until you're drinking 2/3s or 3/4s whisky, then switch to drinking it straight. If whisky doesn't work for you, pursue a similar strategy with another liquor.

A quick guide to cover the basics should you be unsure and in need of guidance.

Step 1 - Get your birthday suit ready.

Exactly what it implies, shit, shower, shave, teeth, hair, nails, whatever personal grooming you need to do you get it done before you put on the suit. Nobody wants to see moisturiser, toothpaste and dandruff on your clothes so put them on, let them set and wash any grease off your hands before you start touching cloth.

Step 2 - Socks and underwear.

Order doesn't matter but the key thing here is to put your socks on before you put your trousers and tie on.

Step 3 - Shirt

Put your shirt on, button it up two from the top. Leave the tie for now.

Step 4 - Trousers

I was raised to be a sophisticated, intelligent man of refined tastes... but all I want to be is a bogan. There's something incredibly appealing about their philosophy and way of life. I had many goals but now my only aspiration is to be lazy and get high.

If the opposite of a gentleman is a bogan, then what is it to be a bogan? We all know what a gentleman is, but what is a bogan?

I want to know what you think.

*Brew your own beer.
*Seek teens who are shitless drunk and ask if they know anyobe with moonshine.
*Stay in your cloth, if they break leave the hole open or stich it together with hands and a needle+string.
*Live in the woods/-with low rent.
*If you really need money: Do not produce anything, just chase the money.

Been living as an outcast since birth, I know what I talk about sir.

Hello Gentlemen, what Is your watch and knife of choice?

I carry a W.R. Case and Sons Sod Buster Jr. to clean my nails and wear a Citizen Eco-drive BM8180 to keep the time.

Ford would ask all his prospective employees the time and ask them for a knife to clean his nails.

A man is nothing without a knife and a watch.

I was curious since I didn't recognize the painting, but it is definitely academic/romanticist in style. There are unfortunately no major active artists that match the surname 'Brun' in the 1860s either.
I'd suggest looking into Lefebvre, Bougereau, Delaroche, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Bonnat etc. etc.

If you are in a crowded environment, you can go to their group and tell them that your friend and you have a bet whether or not they are from country X.
If you are socially competent, you can then make some funny small talk that'll get you into a conversation.
Otherwise, you can depend on them to tell you to stay and chat a while if they are interested in speaking to you.
If neither options work, try improving your appearance and/or social skills; or simply try again.
