yves0010: Glenford: yves0010: Gramma: yves0010: -See my grand kids being born.


I hope you mean that as" living long enough to have grandkids" because otherwise it is creepy, old man.

Sigh... Yes, see the day my grand kids are born. Living long enough. ect.. ect...

/statement is not to be taken literally.

I take it this is your first day on Fark.

Nope, been here for years. Just had not had enough coffee. Don't care...


sigh... hit the wrong button.

Just gets annoying. That's all

yves0010: PallMall: yves0010: See my grand kids being born.

You want to watch your grand kids being born? You mean, like, staring at your daughter's gaping vajayjay and stuff?

You know what I meant. Being at the hospital waiting room till they are born. The normal thing, not actually seeing it.


This is Fark, you know. Clarification is an absolute necessity around here.

Fark_Guy_Rob: stlbluez: Thre are obvious ones... for everyone I guess.

Some specific less sensational ones would be to:

Drive around Ireland / Scotland for a week or two... In a convertible.

Rent a sailboat in the Carribean.

Also... own / fly an ultralight. Given the CHOICE between pilot lessons and flying sessnas, etc.. I'd probably still choose the ultralight.

As someone who lives in Ireland.....why? I mean, really, why? :)


History I guess. My dad's family is pure Irish / Scottish.
Overly romantasized idea of what it's like too I guess.
I guess I have this idealistic image of lots old brick pubs with grass roofs:)... bed/breakfast type of places. The older 'historic' districts I like to frequent in the states have nothing on Europe. Buildings 100's of years old... castles, etc. I have a thing for medieval history I guess.
I've always wanted to see Europe. and Europe to me.. except for maybe a day in London... would be to see a lot of Ireland / Scotland...
Maybe I've just seen "Rob Roy, Braveheart, Far and Away, The Quiet Man, Michael Collins,, etc... too many times :)

Grow some testicles and quit focusing on why you're such a loser. It's a confidence thing.

Being sociable is easy. You hang out at places where other folks do, and shoot-the-shiat with them.



Sociable is fine, but it is not sexual. I can talk to anyone, but it does not turn into a friendly sexual encounter. People say, be yourself, or ,treat them like a person. Well that is BS since I do treat them like people, but I don't end up having sex with people. Do you see the problem?

The sound of one hand clapping: My wish is pretty simple (I hope so at least, I'd like to believe I can achieve it one day).

I just want to be in a relationship with a girl who cares about me enough to put me first once in a while and make me feel special. I've never had that. Never had a girl make me feel loved.

If this happens to me I could then die happy. There are many other things I'd like to do or have, but really that's all else I need in life.


This. Soo much this.

It's very good, and well received amongst locals and our brew club. I've even won awards for my brews. I have done a couple parties where there is a "donation" jar next to the kegerators, but I only make about $50-80 a night. I need something to the tune of ~$250,000 more to get a 7BBL brewery started. 

I know a guy who successfully used Kickstarter to start a small brewery not too far from here. I never thought that would've worked.

2KanZam: -Live off the grid or at least be primarily self sufficient


Call those loonies in Missouri (Dancing Rabbits IIRC). That's what they do and they accept new members.

-travel out of the US or to Alaska, I've seen a lot of the US, time to move on....

United.com, look for "Weekly Specials." You'll be surprised how many international flights (depending on where you're at) for under $500.

-Fish Patagonia and west coast South America saltwater

Save your pennies, then go. Things like this aren't difficult to do and aren't that expensive if you shop around for deals.

-Take back the time I passed up the threesome (one of the girls was my "buddy's" GF), I'd hafta check if that offer still stands 10 years later

This is unrealistic, and as someone with experience in that.. it's not all it's cracked up to be. I was 19 and in excellent shape... those wild women extracted the life right out of me.

-Tell the woman I love to dump the hubby, grab her kid and come with me. I've learned that no one else will do.

Go for it. At least give it a shot. You'll never know if you don't take the chance.

I had a coworker who just abandoned his entire life for a woman, and never looked back. Can't say it's something I'd have done, but good on him for doing something that he couldn't live without doing. (I think they've been together like 15 years now, so it worked)

Well that is BS since I do treat them like people, but I don't end up having sex with people. Do you see the problem?


I get ya now...

You have to learn how to convert social interaction into sexual interaction. Start studying (in real life - NOT THE INTERNET) physical signals given off by woman (or men if that's what you're after). Little gestures and movements that let you know whether or not that person is in to you.

They're not all just going to throw it at you, you've got to learn to recognize signals, and know what to do. I can't help you on the internet, but hopefully you get an idea of what I'm talking about. Here are the basics:

If a woman is interested, they'll act interested. This is step one. Keep doing what you're doing until you see another signal. If they look bothered or disturbed, so either lost it or never had it.

Talk about her. Tell her she's attractive. Ask her what she likes, etc. Touch her shoulder, elbow, arm, etc when you're making an expressive statement (don't say stuff like.. "oohh girl, I'd gouge that hole of yours out"), and smile whilst doing it... etc etc etc until you can get some booty.

Confidence is key, and the ability to recognize body language. ANYONE can learn this stuff, and it really works.

"Winning the lottery" is not realistic.

You can fly to San Diego and rent a car though. Hell, look on Craigslist for someone selling a Miata and ask if you can rent it to drive up the coast. Insure it and haul ass. Easily done for under $2500 including airfare from anywhere in the Continental US.

You don't need $250k for a 7 barrel brewery. You can buy a goddamned 7bbl fermenter for under $10k (stainless).

You're not marketing your "donation" system very well. You should emphasize that DONATIONS ARE ENCOURAGED by putting big ass sign saying exactly that near the kegerator.

$250k is enough for a lot more than 7bbl operation.

That statement alone will keep you from ever realizing your dream. Big risks reap big rewards. They also reap massive failures at times, but if you've got a good attitude and the capacity and ambition to succeed, then it's all worth it.

Just do it. The pain is temporary... realizing that you've accomplished something you publicly announced was a desire is forever. That alone makes it worth it. It's not like a hospital needle.. it's more like the feeling of having a bad sunburn (unless it's near bones). Suck it up and take the dive. I have faith in you.

Do it before you're too old. You will always regret not doing it. This world is enormous, and your life is very small (and short). Don't waste any more time wishing. Take that first step outside and keep walking.

If I didn't settle down to get married, I'd still be traveling. I've done a lot of it and wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything. It's YOUR life... make what YOU want out of it.

Uhh, not really. A 7BBL brewery doesn't necessarily have just one 7BBL fermenter, either - my planned brewery has 6, plus 6 additional brite tanks. You're looking at it from a best case raw material cost perspective. Trust me, I've run the numbers, and I'm good friends with three professional brewers and two owners of a brewery, and have had my eyes on specific equipment for use with a specific process - I know what it costs. Buying the property/structure, installing the required utilities (hot/cold water just about everywhere in the building, glycol chiller/lines, natural gas, electricity, refrigeration rooms, etc...), and hooking up all the equipment costs more than buying the fermenters, brite tanks, and mash tun alone. A LOT more.

This brewery won't be a small pole barn with a mash tun, kettle and fermenter. It'll have a tap room, brewery, cellar, and small grill/food operation. Nothing fancy on any accounts, but all expenses add up quick.
