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 never really did. Although, I haven't really explored much in the genre like others have, I can listen to some Dethklok or some other introductory metal of that sort and enjoy it fully.

Sophisticated Gentleman 20/11/18(Wed)12:29 No. 3591

I stopped listening to scene-metal when I was 16, because I discovered bands like Converge and Boris, whom I listen to to this day.

I stopped identifying with it maybe 12 years ago, so around 18. But I still listen to it sometimes when working out and can enjoy going to a concert now and then (when it was possible). Fuck you for making me feel old now

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.

I was wondering how to create the "perfect" cup of tea, such as how much sugar, milk, water and the order of how to do such.
I shall try every suggestion I get.

I agree with the milk first idea. You definitely end up with more of a tea flavour than the slightly tangy boiled milk flavour you get if you put hot water straight onto the milk.

The reason milk-in-second has become a generally accepted way of doing things (despite it producing an inferior brew) is because people tend to brew the tea in the mug rather than in a teapot, the proper way.

Obviously enough then, putting milk in before hot water would mean a tea-bag soaked in cold milk which is a massive no no.

I do mine in a teapot, three minutes, milk in first. Comes out lovely.

I have been wanting to buy a proper teaset for a while now. I need to check my local charity shop, they tend to have tons of them going for cheap. I personally enjoy the Chinese smoked and fermented teas, but one time at a random Chinese restaurant I enjoyed a particularly memorable Jasmine tea. One day I would like to enjoy a matcha in the traditional manner.

Anyway I can't help but be reminded of Orwell's essay on the subject: https://www.orwellfoundation.com/the-orwell-foundation/orwell/essays-and-other-works/a-nice-cup-of-tea/

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?

Drink while squatting for best results.

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.
