  1. It's meant to elicit a prescribed response. I just smile and walk away. Never let someone who contributes so little TO you have so much control OF you.
  2. I read post #8, then I was laughing quite loudly reading the posts following that. Gotta love this community.
  3. I'm sorry, but I've been through a lot of medical training in my 50 years and I must disagree. I'm willing to bet that site you read wasn't written by a licensed physician, rather it was written by someone who is just repeating a myth.Look at it this way. A kilted (regimental) man sits down in a chair at the mall. This man suffers from several sexually transmitted diseases. He gets up and you sit down 2 seconds later. Do you really want to take a chance on the tip of your manhood touching the area where his manhood was just oozing? Yes, that chair may look clean, but the naked eye cannot see everything. Molecules CAN live outside the human body for a time. Perhaps more people need to learn the difference between the three states of cleanliness (medical training). My apologies for being graphic, but it was necessary to prove a point.
  4. Just my opinion, but I always wear something under the kilt for health reasons.. I don't want to have my health, or the health of others, affected by sitting my bare skin in public places. Yes, I always sweep the pleats but they don't' always stay in place. Again, just my $0.02
  5. I just received the blood test results from a recent blood draw. The only issue is that my vitamin D level is "mildly low". I'm 50 years old, perhaps I'll live for another 50
  6. I own 9 kilts and zero p@nt$. If someone is going to be closed-minded enough to tell me that I cannot wear the kilt, then that person has no place in my life. No one tells me that I can't wear the kilt. The English crown tried that centuries ago (clan proscriptions) and that oppressive behavior isn't going to cut it anymore.
  7. I own 9 kilts and zero p@nt$. I'm kilted from the time I get out of bed in the morning to the time I go to bed at night.
  8. Thank you. I guess the doctor would have said something had there been any worries.
  9. I haven't laughed so hard in a while. Thanks for that!
  10. Today I went in for a physical and blood work. I am 49 years old and expected that my health would show typical signs of issues for people my age. Here is what the doctor found: Age: 49 (50 years in January) Weight: 158 (I weighed over 250 lbs 16 years ago) Blood pressure: 106 over 76 Pulse: 78 Current medications: None, I haven't ever been on long-term meds Allergies: No known allergies Health issues: None No health issues?! For a 50 year old male? I expected to have at least a minor issue of some sort. Anyone here trained in medicine and can tell me why my pulse is so high? Is 70 not the norm? I walked out of the doctor's office with a huge smile on my face.
  11. Six kilts?! Wowsers! Always a thrill when a new kilt arrives. We could have ordered and paid for it months ago but we're like kids in a candy store when it actually arrives. Wear them with pride
  12. I currently own 4 kilts from USA Kilts, received years ago, and I've never been disappointed. Rocky and company do excellent work!
  13. Given that this was your first attempt, and that it was created from scraps, I think you've done an outstanding job! Excellent use of scraps to create something useful as well as aesthetically pleasing. Good job!
  14. I see lots of veterans, and people from Texas. I served in the US Navy as a field corpsman (NEC 8404) and I grew up in Copperas Cove Texas. Small world, eh?
  15. Thank you all for the kind words! This proves what a wonderful community this is
