Quote from: Kim Schave on December 15, 2010, 02:23:17 PMI was in my happy place before reading this thread. Charles sure has a sense of humor! I think a great man is one who can be manly and tough when needed but also full of compassion when necessary. I think Jesus got it right on both counts; I have full confidence you all can, too.

Quote from: Brian Stoffregen on December 15, 2010, 04:03:01 PMMethinks that Jesus would have chastised any of his disciples who pulled out a firearm to defend him in the Garden of Gethsemane. He certainly did not play the "macho" image of a man as he allowed himself to be physically and verbally abused without fighting back or calling on the legion of angels to fight back.

If someone says it isn't manly who cares as long as you enjoy it. But don't try to tell me that the epitome of "manliness" is a barber shop quartet or attending La Bohemme.Me:I didn't try to tell you that. And BTW, it's La Bohème

Quote from: Dan Fienen on December 15, 2010, 05:35:54 PMOne of the things that I find interesting about the show "MythBusters" is that while they do dangerous things on the show (and some of it is truly dnagerous, especially handling explosive materials and guns) they also use and show extensive safety precautions. While there is often an element of danger in their investigations, they do those things as safely as possible and treat the safety precautions as a normal, expected element. They are not about taking unnecessary risks and their masculinity does not suffer in the process.Dan
