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.

Hello Gentlemen, what Is your watch and knife of choice?

I carry a W.R. Case and Sons Sod Buster Jr. to clean my nails and wear a Citizen Eco-drive BM8180 to keep the time.

Ford would ask all his prospective employees the time and ask them for a knife to clean his nails.

A man is nothing without a knife and a watch.

Van Gogh did several paintings that match your description.

This page includes images of a few of them:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trees_and_Undergrowth_(Van_Gogh_series)

The rijksmuseum lists one in its collection here, but no picture:
https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en/collection/SK-C-1756

The webMuseum has some other images, less realistic but with plenty of orange.

Hope this helps

I watched "The Good Shepherd" tonight. Fantastic piece of fiction, that was. Absolutely brilliant espionage film directed by DeNiro. I might even go as far as to claim that it is the finest espionage film ever made. I suggest you utilize your eyes to view this piece in its full glory. It's truly spectacularly good.

I believe that modern filmographic devices displaying images at rapid speeds to create the illusion of movement would be a fine topic of discussion for fine gentlemen such as ourselves, would you not agree? Let us, perhaps, begin to list some of our most favored sophisticated films.

File 135601287854.jpg - (32.22KB , 300x300 , JAGERMEISTER.jpg )

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?

OP, Jagermeister is not an acceptable drink for a respectable man. Jagermeister is a frat boy's drink.

A well-rounded man should be able to enjoy a quality tipple of any hard liquor. Quality matters - cheap tequila or whiskey is worse than dishwater. Liqueurs are for mixing or aperitifs, not to be drunk straight except on Christmas morning. The ability to appreciate and distinguish between single malt whiskys is indispensible - you can wax poetic about your drink of choice, but if you're not a whisky man you'll never be quite "top shelf".

The key to being a respectable drinker (which critics often overlook) is to have a "nose" for liquor. This means having a physiology sufficiently adapted to alcohol that you can see past the "kick" of the alcohol and register more subtle flavours. As a neophyte drinker, when you describe tequila and vodka as both "extremely nasty" you are having an objectively different experience than I would have with the same drinks - there's a whole complexity of flavour there that you're simply not equipped to taste.

The key to acquiring the taste is to drink high-proof stuff in moderation over a long period. I recommend purchasing a mid-range blended Scotch whiskey and a bottle of Drambuie. Mix half-and-half over ice - this makes a duo called a Rusty Nail, which is sweeter than whisky but just as strong. Over time, adjust the proportions until you're drinking 2/3s or 3/4s whisky, then switch to drinking it straight. If whisky doesn't work for you, pursue a similar strategy with another liquor.

Death in the Afternoon, also called the Hemingway or the Hemingway Champagne, is a cocktail made up of absinthe and Champagne invented by Ernest Hemingway. It is a must try.

Well, I don't think he's that good. But he is famous to go against the traditional standards of art at the moment with the Dada movement, to prove that even a toilet would be considered art.

the toilet in the above photo was originally rejected from the show, until they found out who the artist that crated it really was.

I love physical activity, I love playing games and running around.

This being said, I am not very fit although I would like to be.

I'm interested in some sports but don't know how to get into them. The two main ones are Rugby and Boxing (do not want to compete though).

How should I get into these? Should I just look for amateur leagues/boxing classes?

Thanks for your time!

As someone very much so into boxing for the past few years I can give some basic tips for first starting on what you need to go buy. Its a short list.

1. Gloves, I use Title gloves and at the $40 price range these gloves have lasted me 2 solid years and are still holding strong. $20 gloves will hurt your hands due to cheap construction.
2. Jump rope, buy a $5 jump rope and get very used to using it all the time.
3. Wraps or wrap gloves. Buy either the proper boxing wraps that are 180 inches long and watch a video on youtube to learn to properly wrap. Or get some everlast or title wrap gloves with the gel in the front. I've used a pair of the everlast evergels for the past year and love it.
4. Buy a heavy bag or join a boxing gym. While their gloves may be unfortunately underwhelming, Everlast does make a good basic heavy bag that lasts a while, remember to wrap the bottom half in duct tape to protect the stitching and stop sand from settling. OR join a real "boxing gym", not a commercial gym. 24 Hour doesn't have bags and they don't have experienced trainers. A traditional boxing gym will probably be lower in price as well depending on your area.

I hope some of this helps your choice in joining the wonderful world of boxing and punching each other in the ring for fun and money.
