Edited to add: On second thoughts, I might have sounded a bit harsh in my comments. 

 

However, I suspect that if you don't like messing about in boats and you wear an anchor bracelet, a lot of people who notice it are going to ask, "Oh, do you like sailing?" and if you don't, then you're going to be a bit stuck for a good answer.

Bracelets, wristwatches, what's the difference?
post #67188 of 67946
In my opinion -only piece of jewelry a man should wear is a wrist watch(other than a wedding ring). Bracelets are for hipsters(and pretenders).

And you should wear your wedding ring on the right hand which is the hand of giving. The left is regarded as the hand of the devil due to Judas accepting the 30 pieces of sliver with his left hand. JM got any more obscure pieces of information than that? decisions.gif

No. The left hand is correct then.

On my post I said “in my opinion” . I am not a fan of bracelets. I find these are feminine accessory(again in my opinion).

Im a left hander Geoff... I don't wear my wedding ring anymore, uncomfortable. Wear bracelets occasionally, don't wear French cuffs...

Anyone here ever own or currently own a Landrover Defender?
post #67194 of 67946
No but I've been looking at the defenders lately. Great cars but too bloody expensive for a 4cyl 4WD IMO.

I'll likely end up with an FJ cruiser once the pajero gets a bit older. Still a proper 4WD with low range, but no diesel version unfortunately. Still 220kw is plenty enough for me and I rarely tow anything. Can be had for $30-35k for 2011-12 models down here.

You can drink beer and eat rice-based dishes at the same time, but not sake, as sake is itself made from rice. It's not a universal rule, but it's still pretty common. Nonetheless, of course, as a foreigner people wouldn't worry if you ordered both sake and a rice dish together. 

 

A final, final note: your chopsticks should not point across from you (i.e. towards your dining companion, or the chefs if you're sitting at the bar).

Drove one for a year. Drove the shit out of it. It must have been decades old.

No, but I have a good friend who had an old one (about 25 years old) which was slow as a wet week but which would just keep on going and going and going and going.

 

He's now driving a new one - the last of the "original" Defenders - and he says that it's much faster (speaking comparatively, of course) and much more modern but still recognisably a Defender.

I'm selling some ties. I'd prefer to sell locally so if you see something you are interested in let me know.

You're right mate, pretty expensive for 4cyl.

My Navara did its clutch at 55kms so I'm pretty peeved, so I'm looking at replacement, last series Hilux SR 4w4 diesel is probably the one.

However the Defender is an absolute beast, the 130 is tempting....

Walked through Fossil yesterday, quite pricey given the quality issues identified by members.

2016 wish list
Light brown/grey linen suit
Olive green linen shirt
Canvas duffel
Defender 130
Timex weekender

Most realistic is nato band to match watch 😟

Oi size 10.5 chocolate suede RM craftsmen only 150 bucks at harbor town....

Short note during a break in hostilities:

In different countries there's different "rules" about which hand to wear a male wedding ring

Bracelets on men are an ancient thing. I used to wear one until everybody started.

Anybody who is size 10.5UK - I will soon have 3 almost never worn pairs of shoes Loake/Herring to sell for a mate.

DB, would you be interested in buying a small Filson duffle?
