1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    ^nice. when it comes to simple understated wristwatches vintage stuff is awesome. it can become a conversation piece. I've had random people just start asking me about a vintage watch I'm wearing on the subway. The weird part is that its women most of the time.

    I got really into vintage Hamilton Watches about 3-4 years back... it can become a huge rabbit hole though when you start scouring eBay and watch forums.

    I was simultaneously pissed and happy when J. Crew started selling the timex look alike military watches. These three spanned WWII through Vietnam war.

    I've got some nice regular/modern watches a brietling, an omega, and a rolex, but once you start wearing vintage wearing new watches almost seems uncool.

    once I started buying vintage hamilton pocketwatches (they have a lot of history with america and train scheduling).. I knew I went too far and had to decide to focus a specific genre. So now I just look for old hamilton military wrist watches.

    No, that's more like eating a bottle of pineapple flavored sun screen.

    I get lots of fruits and nuts, and some crackers too I guess, depending on the definition you use. Isn't that enough for one guy?

    the cheese is the essence of the experience. its like the seductive sleepiness that follows an orgasm.

    I used to have a crush on Tom Keifer (the singer) when they were popular. Just did a quick google image search and realized that my taste was pretty good back then.

    Is this because of the Lactaid pills?

    Night Songs was one of my favourite albums when I was a wee lad.

    I like watching the food/cooking channels. Especially shows with hot chicks with foreign accents. Laura Calder is a favourite. Watching Rachel Khoo now.

    I hope it was coffee you made at home vs. coffee at Tim Horton's?

    Making one's own coffee in the morning is a sublime treat. It makes me very happy to do so on the weekends. Sadly I don't have time during the week because all you people keep getting in trouble with the cops for drinking and driving or fighting with your baby mommas or shooting deer out of season or raping children or murdering your pregnant girlfriends. Can't a guy get a break here?

    Yup! I am having a lot of fun eating dairy. Although I'm realizing that it costs me more than it costs others, since I have to take a pill every time. It would be nice if there were a pill that lasted all day.



    I'm not gonna lie, I do some of the things you've described. But I can't believe I've ever prevented you from making your own coffee.
