Ladies and Gentlemen


Could you please be kind enough to provide some proposal ideas? I'd really appreciate your concern.

Tell her "we should get married. You in?"

No need to hurl expenses at her when it's really a decision based on emotion (and crude financial benefits).

i dont know where you live, if your on the coast you can do this, or just plan a trip to the beach one day, like a road trip or something....you get a bottle and roll up a note that says 'will you marry me' on it, and put the ring around the note, cork the bottle, and give it to a friend or someone and have them put it in the sand along the shore, so the top is sticking out. when you walk along you see the bottle and have her pick it up, and read the note, when she looks at you, you are on your knee.....

Tradition dictates you ask permission from her parents prior to asking her. Doing both at the same time is rather rude. Also, despite not knowing how your relationship is currently, I have to ask: if you're not already spending Christmases together and visiting your collective parents together, is the relationship at the right stage to ask for her hand?

Good day or evening, gentlemen! What are your preferences when it comes musical finery? I'll start:
One of my personal favorites is Berlioz's Symphony Fantastique, of that I've had the pleasure of performing and listening to whenever I am able.

Ah, yes. A quite embarrassing mistake, but I thank you for correcting me without undue reprimand. That aside, I agree with your tastes. Electroswing seems to combine two relatively lively and popular (in their times) genres into an enjoyable third genre. But one cannot forget the roots, and what fine roots indeed.

Scott Joplin particularly "Solace" and the opera "Treemonisha". also the occasional musical especially shows such as Ragtime and Spring Awakening. Ragtime has incredibly clear and rich orchestrations in the turn of the century style lots of solo instruments and percussion. Spring awakening is much more minimal and even uses rock but only sparingly and does so excellently. Particulary nice is the use of the string quartet with the other instruments in an almost impressionist style. reminds me quite a bit of the debussy string quartet 3rd movement.

As a gentleman oft pressed with the vicissitudes of life, I lean towards sharp, coarse compositions. Names such as Schnitke and Cowell are usually in order. Prokofiev, in particular, is quite deserving in this category. Of course, amongst polite company and friendly camaraderie I will quote the works of Bach and Chopin as well, as any other proper man of letter would.

I was advised to try chancho marino when I was in Peru as part of the "pick something of the menu at random and see if it's any good" experience thinking it was some kind of Peruvian surf 'n' turf.

I received an oversized tuna steak (I love tuna steak) but the flavour was a bit more mellow and it had a smoother texture. Half-way through my friend translated it for me and I immediately regretted not taking a photo before hand to show off my achievement.

So, to answer your question, it's quite good, but I prefer tuna.

Think of squirrel meat mixed with stewed alligator liver sauteed in shark oil and spruce. That's the approximate taste.

Gentlemen, please. Your collective conduct is rather unbecoming. As users of this board, it is your duty to act and speak in a civilised manner. I can see that there are certain disagreements in this thread, however I see no need for foul language and name calling.

In regards to the OP; I'm afraid I shall not be sharing this image with my acquaintances, for comedic purposes or otherwise. I apologize for disappointing you.

Sophisticated Gentleman 14/04/18(Fri)21:05 No. 2755

The questioned posited by the OP's gentleman in the picture is indeed of utmost importance. The search of a random generator, based solely on deterministic rules, seem to be a contradiction in itself and yet, one that is continually advanced. While no current scheme is perfect they are often within the error mark of many systems and they certainly took more than two days to formulate.

As for the gentleman's attire, I must say quite dandy.

Nothing makes my day quite like putting on a custom tailored suit. I swear if I was poor, I'd be a tailor just so all my clothes would fit properly. What would you say makes your day, gents?

My day is made when I get some fresh air. I live in a little town which has an alarming number of trees lining the streets, so the air is very clear and clean.

I still listen to metal but I stopped "dressing metal" at 22.

I had a shitty job, shitty friends and a whinging emo bitch girlfriend.

I dumped them all, cleaned up my act and got a nice paying job in IT.

The device itself cannot be classy. Like any smoking peripheral, it depends on how you carry yourself while using it.

One could enjoy the occasional pipe or cigar while staying classy as long as all of it is of high quality and it is done simply for the pleasure of the quality while staying classy but other than that tobaccy is never classy. It's about as classy as having tattoos or soiling oneself.

Say gentlemen, what is your shaving tool of choice? Is it perhaps the shaving knife, a safety razor or is it possibly one of those hideous modern multi blade type of razors?

I myself have recently bought a safety razor, model Merkur 34c and so far im very content with it.

The picture is of course related.

I have built a small wooden box out of solid maple, foam and brass hardware. It holds two Dovo straight razors. I lay my strop in the bottom of my suitcase and I use the Simpsons Major shaving brush. Combined with Colonel Conk soap and a small bottle of self-made aftershave I'm all set.

I always make sure I give my razors a touch-up on the hone before travel. Nothing worse than being out of town and discovering your razor is dull.

The day I travel home I either don't shave or I work the brush against a dry towel and then open it up again the minute I get home. Can't let a damp brush get moldy, but it seems to survive a few hours in transit.

So basically, because I have to travel for business and I'm dedicated to this method of shaving, I spent a bunch of extra money to gave the right stuff.
