Dear God, thankyou Bigglesworth. I was expecting Bacon make-up.

Like, make-up for bacon.
Or make-up made out of bacon.
Or bacon-flavoured make-up.
Or investigative make-up.
Or make-up that allegedly wrote Shakespeare.

You saved my day.

Awesome. Quite often when I see a red door I want it painted black. No colours anymore, I want them to turn black. I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes. I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.

Is that manliness, though? I'm pretty sure reasonably advanced interior designers can do the same thing, and interior design isn't the manliest of jobs.

interior designers may want the door to be black. Maybe. They'd probably want to go with something a bit more inviting, unless specifically told that that wasn't the idea. But their process involves getting someone to order the paint, and someone else to paint it.

If they could accomplish this merely by sort of looking at the door and thinking on a whim how, all things considered, they'd prefer it to be black, and then moving on as reality shaped to better suit their mood, they'd be in a different business

all's I'm saying is if a dude can will reality to change around him there's more money to be made than interior decorating. Suppose one saw red in one's financial statements and wanted it to turn black.

Or wanted the girls walking by to no longer be in their summer clothes.

That's because REAL men don't talk about their feelings, unless those feeling have to do with bacon or beer.

Or perhaps because people constantly do this. But instead of just bitching, I'll do something proactive about it.

I've recently started working out, and I've got a routine that consists of lifting three times a week, running (and just running) about four miles three times a week, and playing ultimate frisbee Monday-Thursday for at least two hours (though this isn't so much for the workout as it is for the enjoyment of the game). I'm having some trouble building muscle mass though, is it just because of the infrequency of working out (only three times a week) or does it have more to do with the type of workout?

The thing is, while reps will give you tone and burn calories, to build muscle you need to push the weight up when you're lifting.

You also probably need more protein intake, if you're fan of ultimate frisbee you're probably also a vegetarian, which means you might want to consider taking a protein supplement, like whey protein.

I do hope that was in jest. I know some ultimate frisbee players who are pretty manly men and decidedly carnivorous.

That said, xndrew, yeah, try upping the ol' protien intake. Failing that...maybe you just need to give it time?

To build muscle mass, you want to do excercises that are very hard, with low reps. Like every other day.

high reps low weight = weight loss and toning and thinner

low reps high weight = higher muscle mass

Protein is good too (so literally, BACON)

Almost, I'm a pescatarian. But thanks for the advice guys, it's mostly stuff I've been aware of, but maybe I'll actually use it now. The issue may more or less be the fact then when I do go to work out, I mostly follow around a friend and do the same excersizes he does. I've since gone around trying to find an appropriate work out, and think I've found one that ought to work. Oh, and yeah, whey protein.

Haha that's probably not a good idea. Bacon has more fat than it does protein I suggest you drink protein shakes or eat lots of nuts (also has fat but not as much as bacon).

See, I think the thing about the Man Thread (notice it's not the manliness thread, or bacon thread) is that while we have an up and running Woman Thread, a place where women can talk and men can ask questions to the women talking, we don't have the same thing for men and for women. I think it'd be pretty cool to have equal and opposite threads for these kinds of things, but hey, those are just feelings on the matter, and since I don't eat bacon, I guess it makes sense that I'd have 'em.
I'm not opposed to the whole bacon thing, but this thread has, in many ways, become more or less a forum game, as has been said by other, more prolific and better spoken, posters.
But I guess if I don't like it I can just leave.

I'm sure about 5-10 pages ago someone asked if they could ask a question, a la the woman thread, and we kinda said yes. The bacon/manliness debate is filler while we wait for another guy to get a problem that he can't solve with his amazing power (we don't do the whole menstruation thing, hence lower problem count (ie. <1 problem/month.)

I have got to marinade bacon in beer, see if the 'seperate things nice, mixed together bad' rules holds up. I hope not :D Pics if I try it and it works.
