For those of you who grew up in the 80’s or on the cusps of the 80’s the latest netflix tv series of Stranger Things takes you on a nostalgic journey through a ton of awesome 80’s movies referencing some of the greats. The show starts out with a group of kids playing D&D – which should remind you of movies like ET, and the fact the the group of kids is tight nit and go on adventures – the similarities to The Goonies is also apparent with the two age groups of middle school and high school kids. As […]
No doubt you’ve heard the term “manscaping” before and it conjured up images of shaving below the belt. While this is true to a certain extent, manscaping is about much more than that.
In the purest form of the term, manscaping is about a man taking charge of his life through cleanliness and hygiene. Through maintaining the canvas of our bodies, manscaping allows us to take control of our life.

I had a chance to chat with Jason of Tryablade.com as I had recently been turned onto the site to quickly and easily sample a large number of different double edge razor blades. The speed of shipping and great customer services prompted me to follow up with him and have a quick interview on the site and how it came about. How did you come up with the idea of tryablade.com ? When I started wet shaving, I didn’t know what blades to buy, so I bought a sampler from a web site that contained about ten full packs. […]
As we ride into 2015 you might be trying to come up with the age old new years resolutions. Some choose to lose weight, others to stop smoking, others to get in better shape. But if you’re interested in doing something different than the usual assortment of things, try something different on. Do this list. 1. Learn how to change your own oil, or your air filter, some sort of maintenance on your car. You’ll feel accomplished, even if a little bit. 2. Watch all 23 James Bond Movies. Seriously, have you watched all of them in order? 3. Buy […]
The media as usual has done a good job of over-hyping the ebola outbreak. In fact there really isn’t an outbreak here in the US, just some unlucky people in the healthcare industry who were given bad instructions and may or may not have had common sense when it comes to traveling. Ebola is a hemorrhagic fever type of disease and is not airborne, similar to HIV/AIDS. You could even have it touch your skin and not get it, unless you have an open wound. Our government has just done a poor job and bungled the whole issue – the […]
Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment and learn again to exercise his will — his personal responsibility.” –Albert Schweitzer,German philosopher, musician, theologian and physician I recently read a story that Mike Rowe described between himself and some lawyers about posting the picture of a shop lifter. The convenience store owner was continually plagued by shop lifters even with his camera going catching them in the act. He started posting pictures of the shop lifters and the amount of theft slowed down dramatically. But that’s not the problem. The problem was the two lawyers who were […]
With continuing crushing regulation including the FDAs attemps now to regulate cigar and pipe tobacco (premium tobacco) as opposed to cigarettes, now more than ever its important to support you local tobacconist shops. There are some things you just can’t buy online to get a feel for it. Ie, buying a box of cigars in bulk online may save money but what happens when you get that box and you hate the cigar? Tobacconists are great places to go just to ask the question – “hey how’s this cigar? have others liked it? Do you like it?” You can get […]
In case you weren’t aware the FDA is once again over-stepping its boundaries and going in to regulate the premium tobacco industry. They are “proposing” to extend their reach – and of course increase the size of their department and budget to regulate more of your freedom away. If you give a crap about the ability to buy and smoke premium tobacco head over to Cigar Rights of America and look at the talking points and send in your feedback to the FDA.
Few people know the real details about the differences between cigarettes, cigars, and pipes. Most are just bombarded by anti-smoking messages on a daily basis that lump ALL smoking into the same bucket. So allow me to provide you with a bit of information about those differences. The premium tobacco that is grown for cigars and for pipes is generally alkaline based. Because of this you don’t inhale pipe smoke or cigar smoke. Cigarettes are from a varietal of tobacco plant that is more acidic based — thus you can inhale it into your lungs where you absorb 100x the amount of […]
I heard the ad on the radio and thought it was a joke. But the Dollar Shave club is no joke. For a dollar, or if you’re feeling squirrely $6 or $9 a month you can get primo razer blades shipped to your door – and the handle for free. Not only that shipping is free for the $6 and $9 a month package. If you’re doing the $1 blade then shipping is $2 extra. Dollar Shave Club is based out of California and founded by two guys Mark Levine and Michael Dubin (Mike in the video). Mike actually came […]
Last week Makers Mark announced that it would be changing its alcohol content by 3% (which really isn’t 3%) to go from 45% alcohol by volume to 42% alcohol or 90 to 84 proof. Their reasoning was that they anticipated shortages and wanted to stretch the liquor out to cover the shortages. They even went so far as to have connoisseurs come in and try to taste the difference between them. The owners said they had tested the watered-down bourbon themselves and validated their own findings with consumer research. Both agreed that “there’s no difference in the taste,” Samuels said. “While not every […]
There are a good number of books out there on this crap(drum roll), but most people just Google this stuff, and it brings them to a website that has the information. So here we are providing you the information based on my own personal experience in the diaper lab here at the institute. This is the man’s guide to changing diapers or a practical guide or real-world guide cause they never tell you the nitty- gritty in those self help books. And just for your own edification – diapers all use the same chemical to absorb wetness. Acrylic acid is a key component of super-absorbent polymers […]
Well, we’ve made it to yet another year here on the Institute’s website. This year we’ve really accomplished jack squat. Next year, I suspect will be similar with one exception – if I don’t get any writers who want to help, I may shift focus slightly to fatherhood since this year I became one. So my New Years’ resolution would be to post a bit more than last year – and that should be pretty easy right? I think we didn’t even get once per month. Next, would be to post more original content – I think this is where […]
