    I wonder, was it a "Mans Man" or a Feminine Man who made it possible to be on the Internet, to have a computer, a car, groceries, clothes and so on? Anyone get my point?

    I get your point Chuda, but some men don't like to acknowledge that. They don't understand that the definition of what a "real" man is, evolved the way everything else in life did. The core values will never change and those have never been in dispute. The superficial stuff has.

    You guy's are doing great....so here is a side question, and I hope I don't derail the conversation. But without saying it is you, is this a youth issue only..?? or are there a fair amount of middle aged or older men without basic outdoorsman skills, that feel a void.???
    Have you tried going Solar in Adelaide?

    "Real Men As Opposed To Modern Wimps"

    The Real Man Test

    Note: All "real men" answer "C" to all of these questions. Knowing this, women will have come far in understanding men and enriching their own lives if they carefully review the "C" answer.

    1. Alien beings from a highly advanced society visit the Earth, and you are the first human they encounter. As a token of intergalactic friendship, they present you with a small but incredibly sophisticated device that is capable of curing all disease, providing an infinite supply of clean energy, wiping out hunger and poverty, and permanently eliminating oppression and violence all over the entire Earth. You decide to:

    A. Present it to the President of the United States.
    B. Present it to the Secretary General of the United Nations.
    C. Take it apart.

    2. As you grow older, what lost quality of your youthful life do you miss the most?

    A. Innocence.
    B. Idealism.
    C. Cherry bombs.


    3. When is it okay to kiss another male?

    A. When you wish to display simple and pure affection without regard for narrow-minded social conventions.
    B. When he is the Pope. (Not on the lips.)
    C. When he is your brother and you are Al Pacino and this is the only really sportsmanlike way to let him know that, for business reasons, you have to have him killed.

    4. In your opinion, the ideal pet is:

    A. A cat.
    B. A dog.
    C. A dog that eats cats.

    5. You have been seeing a woman for several years. She's attractive and intelligent, and you always enjoy being with her. One leisurely Sunday afternoon the two of you are taking it easy. You're watching a football game; she's reading the papers when she suddenly, out of the clear blue sky, tells you that she thinks she really loves you, but, she can no longer bear the uncertainty of not knowing where your relationship is going. She says she's not asking whether you want to get married; only whether you believe that you have some kind of future together. What do you say?

    A. That you sincerely believe the two of you do have a future, but you don't want to rush it.
    B. That although you also have strong feelings for her, you cannot honestly say that you'll be ready anytime soon to make a lasting commitment, and you don't want to hurt her by holding out false hope.
    C. That you cannot believe the Vikings called a draw play on third and seventeen.


    6. Okay, so you have decided that you truly love a woman and you want to spend the rest of your life with her, sharing the joys and the sorrows the world has to offer, come what may. How do you tell her?

    A. You take her to a nice restaurant and tell her after dinner.
    B. You take her for a walk on a moonlit beach, and you say her name, and when she turns to you, with the sea breeze blowing through her hair and the stars in her eyes, you tell her.
    C. Tell her what?


    7. One weekday morning your wife wakes up feeling ill and asks you to get your three children ready for school. Your first question to her is:

    A. "Do they need to eat or anything?
    B. "They're in school already?"
    C. "There are three of them?"


    8. When is it okay to throw away a set of veteran underwear?

    A. When it has turned the color of a dead whale and developed new holes so large that you're not sure which ones were originally intended for your legs.
    B. When it is down to eight loosely connected underwear molecules and has to be handled with tweezers.
    C. It is never okay to throw away veteran underwear. A real man checks the garbage regularly in case somebody (and we are not naming names, but this would be his wife) is quietly trying to discard his underwear.


    9. What is the human race's single greatest achievement?

    A. Democracy.
    B. Religion.
    C. Coltís Govt. Model .45 ACP.

    Seniorman,

    For the last 40 years I have been married to a woman, now 64-years-old and o-so-liberal, who could probably eat your lunch every day of the week, and ask for seconds each and every time.

    In other words, don't assume that 'liberal' means 'weak'....

    Happy Days,

    Spooky Ol' Joe

    Recognize the cultural differences here. I chose her, and she chose me, because of our determination to ensure the long-term survival of our species (in this case, Native American). She is my PARTNER, not my subordinate. She has successfully defended my back on more than on occasion.

    Happy days,
