    Before I met my wife, I would tell girls about it all the time. They didn't care, one way or the other, and the ones that did, found it sort of an interesting thing, especially given that my other hobbies were mainly combat sports.


    You're the only one who is embarassed in that situation, just fwiw. If people ask you about it, it's usually because they are at least a little intrigued. You can usually tell from the body language. Also, if you are not embarassed by it, people will assume that it's a pretty regular thing. Norms are often more determined by people's attitudes towards them then by what they are, inherently.

    This is true. I've felt pretty out of touch with myself on this trip and the group dynamic here is pretty defeatist and antagonistic, I've been suffering a bit from a lack of confidence. But I'll try this approach, I think you're right.


    I hope I at least make good purchases...And I swear, it's all money that I've earned!

    Got my buttero chukkas in today. The suede is nice, has kinda a waxy sheen to it. The insoles are much nicer looking than cp insoles, but they feel a bit stiff. Hoping they break in nicely. Good looking out fok - great deal for the quality.
    Also, got a heavy cotton Bedford in black and some pierre hardy lows for under 2 bills shipped. Shouts out to cityhunter. Bedford count is up to 3. Really want the polka dotted Bedford to finish off my collection.

    That's not really true at all. LAN parties aren't my thing but you spend a ton of time talking, eating, drinking. It's like a sport--you watch other people play and talk about it. Tons of fun for those that enjoy it and makes something that can be inherently anti-social a very social experience.

    I used to play CS competitively and after a nice round, you get a little message or cheer over voice chat.

    Pull off a clutch play on LAN and everyone jumps out of the seat, high fives, etc. Get pizza afterward.

    Don't understand the hate for vidya gemz, seems like ya'll dudes are just stereotyping like people stereotype us fashunz males. PLUS, HOW CAN YOU HATE IT IF YOU'VE NEVER PLAYED SHADOW OF THE COLOSSUS? That is l'art. :eh:

    Pretty well made frames. Seems like more retailers are picking han up, so if any of you dudes are interested in the frames but haven't heard anything about it, it has g's approval.
