Some things taste better burnt.

I'm always right, even when I'm wrong.

I don't know?

I honestly meant that some food, like steak and some curries taste really fucking good when they're a little burned/almost reduced to charcoal.

The Manliest Man thread didn't die, it lost itself to an epic masculine battle, going down to the last man.

Urinal Etiquette

It always amazes me how often I notice, whether from ignorance or apathy, the astounding number of men that violate some of the most basic bathroom codes of conduct. Take heed: these hallowed commandments have been passed down for generations for good reasons, gentlemen.

Thou shall not make eye contact,

Thou shall not speak to thy neighbor,

Thou shall not peek,

Thou shall not accompany thy bro without need of relief,

Thou shall adhere to the urinal sequence, (See fig. A)

Thou shall not waste time at the sink and mirror,

Thou shall not beat meat in a contested seat

Fig. A

A{ <-3
B{ <-2
C{ <-4
D{ <-1
-----------
As shown in the standard quad manfiguration, prospective pissers should first utilize A, the far urinal closest to the wall so as to keep ample distance for their fellow man. If one should come upon a urinal stack that has a single occupant, stall B is next in priority in order to divide the ego/dick ratio evenly. If you are the third to enter, your next choice should be 3 so that you can minimize the concentration of dick as well as break the otherwise unavoidable continuous line of dicks. It is not a sin to occupy the last stall, but it is counter-productive to those devout among us who should strive broaden the cock/pussy per square feet ratio.

Discuss.
This isn't common knowledge?

Also, a man never peaks or is afraid of his size. He accepts what he has received and moves forward with it. Worrying about it won't make it wobble a millimeter forward in length.


Question: Hitch-Hiking. A sign of manly bravery or incompetence for not being able to provide ones own transport?

Mancompetence!!!! Well, it depends, is he hitch hiking for a self gratifying journey across the land of epic discovery, or because he lost his job and is homeless trying to get to the beach for his yearly shower?

He needs to bring his poverty-stricken mother her yearly load of firewood, but in collecting the wood forgot to save enough to pay for adequate transportation.

He has the chivalry and courage of a man, but he comes up short to being manly, for a true man would carry the deed accounting need of transport to and from said wood gathering place.

The cost of wood went up on his way to collect it due to some oil shortage in some far away land caused by some rich people not wanting to get less profits. He didn't realize that such a far away event would have an influence to his manly plan.

hmmm... How does this guy plan to transport the wood? Does he plan to condescend on another traveler for his transporting wellness? You say yearly supply, so I think at least two bushels worth.

Oh fudge-it, I'm like 20 years too late to admit I like beef jerky and once a year I have a beer.

Oh and there is a female standing urination device that looks like a funnel.

I'm giving a thumbs up to hitch hiking. Bumming a ride because of poverty isn't necessarily unmanly. There are many people who take vows of poverty and manage it with dignity. Like Ryu, for example. He could easily be super rich, like Ken, but he understands that that is not his path.

Yeah, but that's not poverty by failure, that is poverty by choice or way of life and that's fucking manly. Failure at life leading to poverty is not manly. Nice Ryu figure though.

Eating a steak that has been cooked more than medium rare is like -25 man points. Versus I'm ashamed of you, but it does explain why you aren't so big on the flavor as at that point most of the flavor has been cooked out. Unless you are just talking about getting a nice sear on the outside, that is totally fine.

I like my steaks medium rare ... they do have more flavor than if they are cooked longer, and I actually like the texture to have a firm but giving feel to it. A tough texture doesn't do anything for me, any more than flavoring by charcoal does.

There are turkey and bacon flavored sodas that I never had any interest in tasting ... but since you mentioned wanting beef flavored beer, I found THIS ... but it doesn't make me feel very manly.

As far as urinals and stalls are concerned, I want to suggest another rule. I don't mind if you use your smartphone to pull up the web or check email, but you really shouldn't be texting or writting anyone (who needs to hear that tapita-tapita-tapita coming from a nearby stall.) And for God's sake, do not make or answer a phone call while you're in there ... that's just annoying.

It's called a "shewee", they are for the most part really awkward but women who spend long hours away from facilities find them to be pretty helpful.

They had female urinals at a festival I went to a few years ago. It was weird. Also, difficult to master when extremely drunk.

I was inaccurate before. I like the flavor of beef, but I don't like the flavor of steak so I prefer it cooked it until it's mostly gone. I know it doesn't make sense and it's pretty lame, but whatever. That's just me. I'm not so horrible that I'll eat it with steak sauce, though. That's just an inhuman bastard thing to do.

Also, women urinals are manly.

Speaking of steak, my brother dropped off two HUGE pieces for me tonight, which I am going to cook tomorrow for the guy I'm seeing. It's a pretty sweet deal having two brothers who are butchers

MC, he is undeserving of your culinary exertions. If you make that steak for me, I will make you pancakes with blue berries that I picked from the moon.

I want pancakes with blueberries from the moon!

In exchange for those, I can trade for red velvet cupcakes that will make you want to touch yourself.

Oh but Versus, he already made me pancakes last week. They were delicious too. Still, I would cook you steak because I'm generous like that. I'll cook for anyone, I'm a culinary whore.

Don't pancakes clash with vegan diets?
