Re: Anyone into aquariums?

If you're doing freshwater, the Zen garden Japanese setups are crazy and out of this world. But I'm saltwater or nothing. I did drop way too much cash and time into it. Could have had a ROO or two with how much it cost me in the end.

I think that is term used to describe someone who jumps from technology start up company to start up, probably jumping as VC capital is used up.

I'm not certain this is a "thing" outside Silicon Valley.
Or I surf and work at a startup.

How to Dress

Doesn't apply to me as much anymore since I'm now a startup surfer in San Diego but found this to be a pretty well thought out piece. This guy has a pretty good blog/fb feed.

Re: How do you buy an engagement ring?

Yeah, I'm conflicted on how much to spend as well. On one hand, we both love exotic travel so the money would be much better spent on more trips this year and next. But on the other hand, this is supposed to be a thing she wears frequently for the rest of our lives so... I don't know. The idea of sy...

Read a lot of Tom Clancy when I was a teenager. Re-reading it now it's a little painful how poorly edited it was.

Re: Doxa Censorship

It's censorship when it's done by government.

Going into someone's house/business and yelling then being kicked out isn't censorship.

Re: Two Divers that see the Pacific Ocean a few times a week

Thanks guys. I do like Zulu straps and wore one in Costa Rica a lot. I don't wear a wet suit here but I do have one and will strap on the full body condom probably around late October when the water gets cold here. Putting it under the suit is a great idea. http://www.jaegraphy.com/lightroom/costari...

Two Divers that see the Pacific Ocean a few times a week.

I recently took up surfing, had to get a surf watch. Sorry I've been a bit busy switching coasts. I have another Orient on the way and some Orbis Morgan straps coming. I also plan to splurge on an underwater tough camera so we might get some action shots in the next few weeks. I'll tell ya, the NATO...

Re: Bremont Boeing Model 1 Review

I think the photos are technically good but it doesn't really give me a "feeling" for the watch.

The photos are exactly what I want if I'm buying the watch on a sales ad but perhaps they're not quite "moody" enough if you know what I mean?
