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.

I love physical activity, I love playing games and running around.

This being said, I am not very fit although I would like to be.

I'm interested in some sports but don't know how to get into them. The two main ones are Rugby and Boxing (do not want to compete though).

How should I get into these? Should I just look for amateur leagues/boxing classes?

Thanks for your time!

Forget sports op, the only person responsable for your success in matters physical fitness related is you. Lift wights, focusing on squats. Flexibility and mental discipline will be your true foes, not any amount of weight. Being good at squats isn't about physical strength, it is about being a whole human being.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/10/03(Mon)00:46 No. 3204

bare knuckle boxing results in fewer brain trauma injuries and takes more skill. I think that taking a hike and boating (sailboats and canoes) are healthy for the mind and body.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/10/05(Wed)21:31 No. 3207

I enjoy sailing especially solo, it provides a great deal of perspective on your limits as an individual. Once you've gotten good there is nothing as thrilling as sailing in a storm, there is a feeling of helplessness and futility that is hard to describe when you struggle to stay afloat and can feel through rope and helm the force of the world pushing you as it wills.

Just bought my first pipe from an antique shop. Looks nice, needs some cleaning though. Did I do good?

Finding a new pipe stem is pretty easy.
But a new pipe is always a nice thing to have.
If you're able, keep atleast two or three pipes on hand, that way you'll be able let them rest after you've smoked them.
My father had a pipe for every day of the week, but you can get my with two or three as long as you smoke them in a rotation.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/08/28(Sun)22:16 No. 3197

I bought a corncob pipe, and today I'm going to get some Captain Black, white or gold. Whichever I find just to try it out. It seems so peaceful, pipesmoking, so i figured I'd try it.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/10/03(Mon)00:58 No. 3206

If it was bought at an antique shop and needs cleaning then I am not sure that "breaking it in" is what it needs. I once bought an old used yellobole (it was made before they startedmade them out of sawdust and glue) and it's only real downside is that the shank material becomes sticky if you get too much saliva on it.

What is a gentleman's religion/belief?
Does a gentleman share such things?
What is the key element that defines a gentleman, mentally/emotionally?

A gentleman is person who can love and to be kind. I myself is Christian, yet to others if you can love then you are a gentleman

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/08/28(Sun)22:24 No. 3198

The decent discussion of religion and politics has been driven out of the public sphere by contemporary barbarians. There is no reasonable discourse any longer. The new Atheists of today miss the entire point, but moreso they fail to realize how many times their exact argument has been made before, often by the religions members, in the case of St Thomas Aquinas and Catholicism.

Really I was personally an atheist for a very long time until I actually studied theology and history. I've found current dialogues to be distasteful and even militant against religion. Specifically Christianity. It's never against Hinduism, or Shinto or anything else. Its only Christianity. I personally blame the lack of thoroughbred response from the Christian community, I partially blame protestants for their mega churches, and utter trivialization of the faith. This belief gap so to speak, has led to militant atheism, and outright disrespect and dismissal of religion, even saying its child abuse to be raised in a religious family.

It was really weird making the turn around from Atheist to Catholicism. But its been positive.

I havent been to 7chan in awhile, so hopefully I won't be too swiftly ridiculed.

I wish the best for all of you

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/10/03(Mon)00:55 No. 3205

I can appreciate that. I always had a greater appreciation for someone like Penn Gillette as opposed to Richard Dawkins. I have always been Catholic at least to one degree or another. Although because of how much I have had to move over the course of my childhood along with the rest of my family not going to the mass with me, I have relatively few Catholic friends so I have grown to accept that a true gentleman should be open enough to spend time with and discuss important matters with those who may not agree with them, but have the capacity for rational discussion.

Have you ever sent a letter to someone who influenced you, by sending naturally, a genuine hand-written discourse speaking of your shared interests? Many a historic relationships between gentlemen began this way. I have not as I have not yet been acquainted with such a persons with whom I feel I could have satisfactory discourse for such a candid thing.

I should have checked back sooner but I stopped checking regularly after a couple weeks, sorry.

I should tell you, I never got your letter.

I watched "The Good Shepherd" tonight. Fantastic piece of fiction, that was. Absolutely brilliant espionage film directed by DeNiro. I might even go as far as to claim that it is the finest espionage film ever made. I suggest you utilize your eyes to view this piece in its full glory. It's truly spectacularly good.

I believe that modern filmographic devices displaying images at rapid speeds to create the illusion of movement would be a fine topic of discussion for fine gentlemen such as ourselves, would you not agree? Let us, perhaps, begin to list some of our most favored sophisticated films.

I've always been partial to 1998's Ronin, since there is no uncanny alley CGI to distract the eye from the film on display or the mind from the plot being presented.

All stunts were recorded at actual speeds down narrow Paris streets, with gentlemen regularly driving actual vehicles at frighteningly high speeds.

It stars the fine gentlemen DeNiro, Reno, and SkarsgÄrd. While Natascha McElhone's accent grates on the ear, she is merely a supporting actor with less screen time than the stars. Though she is quite bad, overall it is but a small blemish on an otherwise excellent film.

It is, quite simply, the last good film John Frankenheimer created for theaters before his death. If you've never witnessed its spectacle, you should, and you should devote yourself to actually viewing it as a proper gentleman, instead of multitasking which will distract you at inopportune moments.

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 have not picked a knife yet. My watch is simple, cheap but does the job. Cost me something like 700 SEK.

True, there are far classier watches out there. But I prefer to not wear something that looks like a radar station from the 60s. Better to look like a dainty dandy and not dissappoint anyone when you are not up to snuff. Because when you are, it will be for the merriment of everyone.
