I have hated this modern world, at times. Sure, I have known no other -- but I can appreciate the simplicity and honesty of courtship only 30 years ago, before the digital age. I was one of the last generations to grow up without a computer in my hands.

Now, courtship is online, through Tinder and the like, and your worth is lost to a sea of other swinging-dicks like you. Do you try to be poncy and show off? Or do you understate yourself and see who digs?

Honestly, my experience with women in this world has been almost entirely based on what they wanted. Very seldom did I have a say in the courtship; more-so I was simply the one who accepted to hang-out. Or to buy.

Most Western women suffer now from what I call "princess syndrome": an over-inflation of self-worth and entitlement, and a belief that they are (Instagram) celebrities -- when in reality, they are just another basic-bitch.

Maybe I'm jaded, but gentlemen, it seems like a desperate age in the cities of the West. The trick I have found: to move to the cities of the East. Women here are still fun, cute, and... easy. It may be bigoted or otherwise "chauvinist", but it is nevertheless true.

So avast ye, plebs of the over-developed West! Come dance the night-dance in the East! Come join the scum and villainy of the sexpats!

I use a straight razor for my beard. Clean lines. Great for really getting the big hair off. I use disposable blades instead of sharpening and stropping a fixed blade. Got a gift card to one of those shaving places for my birthday and I have been learning a lot ever since.

Anyone have any questions and want to post any straight razor and beard grooming questions, post here.

Looking to get one of those beard shapers. Combined with a straight razor and you can be unstoppable.

I store the blades in a small plastic pouch that also holds the straight razor. I just spread the oil on the straight razor and the blades with my fingertips.

for my mustache, I am trying to grow it out as a handle bar, I don't use a wax because it's not long enough to keep in a suitable chunk.

I use beard wax to keep my beard and eyebrows smooth.

With all the oil, I wash with a on-the-shelf not otc 10% benzoyl peroxide wash, and in the shower I use an apricot scrub. You will get greasy with all the oil, so be careful.

The Beard Mate is something that I think is pretty awesome. You can put it on your face and shave around the plastic to shape your beard with the straight razor.

The best thing for shaving that I have experienced is not the brush and the cup and soap, but Dr. Carver's Shave Butter. It was from a kit that someone got me for Christmas... So maybe Dollar Shave Club? I don't really know, but the reason that I use a shave cream or shave "butter" is because I can see what I am doing. When you use a shaving cream with a brush and a cup and soap, then you make a thick white lather and you risk cutting yourself if not careful.

Hey /class/,

I have a question about cigarollo's. A year back I was at a party and they pulled out some cigarollo's, I partook in 1 and really enjoyed the taste. Even though I hate cigarette's, I've tried to smoke a few times and I just hate everything about it, the taste, feel, and the burn in your throat. I smoke weed every otherday I never add tobacco. I don't plan on getting addicted or involved in smoking anyways.

My question is, what cigarollo's can a non-smoker enjoy? And can I also enjoy a cigar? If yes, which kind, flavour, etc?

Whoever purchased that "graduation cigar" cheaped out and got the lowest quality product he could find. If it was a friend of yours, that friend is a tightwad. If it was you, you should admit your error and apologize to every friend you gave those cigars to.

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

I've never tried porpoise meat, however, I have tried sea turtle when I was in the Bimini before it was taken over by Cubans.
The meat almost tastes like dark chicken mean, but with a much better taste.
Sea turtle is illegal to eat down there as well, but there is no one to enforce it, the Biminites I met call it "hush-mouth steak" for obvious reason. Recommend if you ever go to the Bahamas.

Apparently Manatee is amazing too, but I've never had the pleasure of trying it out.

To all whom it may concern:

I consider myself a patron of the arts, and engage my mind in higher pursuits for the joy of knowledge.
I maintain my body in concert with my mind, staying well-muscled without growing boorish.
I do lounge in low company, but endeavor to be of a stately bearing in mixed company, and am gentle in speech in all places.
I argue in the traditional meaning of the word only, for I am fond of polite debate and spurn the sourly-manged dogfights of heated words.
I ask of others first, only mentioning my pastimes if their mention is sought after.
When asked, I do not ramble, brag, or spin falsehoods.
When I escort my date to various amusements or fine dining, I foot the bill discretely,
without drawing attention to the sizeable paycheque that comes from my respectable employment.

I understand that repetitive "I" statements are off-putting, but feel as though they are applicable in these words.
I am grateful for your fortitude for reading thus far.

My life is charmed, but for this one spot that mars: I am unsure if one may be a gentleman, and also a woman.

Whichever name you choose for it is of low importance.
The idea of dividing people by gender and seeing differences will not parish, but seeing one as lower or not capable of anything only because of group affiliation is a grave mistake our society has made.
Therefore every struggle to correct this mistake by disproving these assumptions, without overstepping the personal boundaries of other people, is just and in no case foolish.
Welcome among us, Ms. Bowler, I salute you and hope our answer, even though it will probably not be a final one, is to your liking.

As it happens, I am a purveyor of the age of enlightenment and era of some of the greatest gentlemen to have ever bore the title. You simply require a role model, an embodiment of the spirit you seek, creator of this post. That gentlewoman is Émilie du Châtelet, said by the sly, and intellectual gentleman Voltaire to be "a great man whose only fault was being a woman"

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 am an active pen pal writer and I have yet to write to someone high-profile. However I used to be close friends with a well-known electronic artist when he was still starting out, as we used to be bedroom producers. Now he's touring around and all yet I haven't contacted him closely for a long time.

I was in the process of writing one such letter to Steve Ditko when he died. Not one of those obnoxious spiderman letters people would send, but one showing appreciation for the ideas put fourth in his independently published works and how they had influenced my thinking. I had put the letter off for some time before finally deciding to pick it up again and then two days later the news of his death broke. My advice, if you're gonna send one of these letters, don't wait.

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.

Different razors are different, but which you prefer is kind of individual, so it's hard to make recommendations. I've used the cheapest razors from a couple different companies, and they were perfect sufficient, so whatever you pick is probably fine.

Get a few brands of blades while you're at it--those make a difference too, but again it's an individual preference kind of thing.
