    Oh sure; I've broken my spine AND collarbone in a motorcycle accident, and didn't even know about the two spine fractures for years, but then again, the bike was a Honda Rebel, and I had been riding maybe two years, and I laid it down in some sand, going under 35 mph, while trying to avoid a big manhole cover.

    And yeah; I've sustained numerous head injuries, to the point that I wonder why I even started this thread, but I almost broke down and cried over a sick molar once.

    And hell; I built this scaffolding by myself, and climbed up it, and jumped around like a monkey up there, fixing the roof and a lightening rod,

    108a.

    but I had a guy who does roofing for a living laughing at me, saying how he would've just used ladders.

    A lot of you men like a cold beer; I'm happy with an iced cappuccino.

    I like poetry, and Bach, and a nice walk in the rain, and I'm not the least bit afraid to talk about my feelings, or watch a chick flick, even when there's no chick in the room.

    I like a nice fluffy kitten, and a good bit of music, or sad scene in a movie can make me cry, even if it's just the scene in "Lady and the Tramp" where Lady thinks Tramp is bad. (he's NOT; he's a GOOD BOY.)

    A man is manly when he's treating his wife or girlfriend well; raising his kids; in short, when he's doing something to make this world a better place.

    There's a whole lot of men out there that are more manly than me, and I'm not talking about burly fighters; drinkers and daredevils, not that any one of those guys couldn't be manly, too.

    I don't carry a "man card," and if I had one, I'd throw it in, for the Queen of Hearts, who Don Henley once told me was my best bet.

    So yeah, I got ya man card riight heah.

    You gotta problem wit dat?

    I lost mine buying tampons...



    No, but really don't take the man card thing too seriously :)
    After all, if I myself actually did take it seriously, do you think I would ever fess up to you bunch of bass-playing freaks that I bought the wife tampons knowing what the outcome would be? Pff mancard shmancard. I'm a dad to three kids, I don't have the luxury of a mancard..
    Right. Now I'm off to play Gi Joes with my youngest son..

    Anything done that leads to getting laid is justifiable under Man Card rules. Although buying tampons probably didn't get you laid right then and there, I'm guessing your wife was thankful for your efforts and rewarded you properly at an appropriate time. Man Card saved.

    Never had any kids or signed any legally binding documetation of my love and undying devotion. Never wanted to. Does it make me less of a man? Not important in my opinion. In the words of Perry Farrell, "I wanna be more like the ocean. No talking and all action." Idealistic yes, but a lofty goal nonetheless.

    Back in the very manly eighties, I wore platform shoes, bell-bottom pants and a big feather earring, and I lived with possibly the hottest woman in the entire city. She sent me out to get NYLONS, and when the clerk looked at me disapprovingly, I said, "they're not for ME," and as the skeptical look crossed his face, I said, "they're for my BOYFRIEND."

    To any gay men reading this, I apologize.

    It was a long time ago.

    Did your head injury cause you to accidentally post your OK Cupid profile? :eyebrow:


    :D

    Anyway, I hold the record 'round these parts for most times having a mancard taken. Get on my level :D!

    This morning, someone in another thread mentioned that they were waiting for the Talkbass Dating Forum. When I read the first post here, I thought it was now open!

    I had to take a man card a few weeks ago. Guy was quoting "Bridget Jones Diary." I would never have known except he said "It makes me think of BJD and the line..." Anything else mentioned in this thread is fine. But quoting BJD? No.
