An ode to bald men

When I was a child, in a galaxy far, far away, during the turbulent times of the 70's, my brother and I watched our little black and white Zenith® TV. I remember watching shows like Kojak, Columbo, The Streets of San Francisco, The Six Million Dollar Man, Police Woman, and many others. I also watched late night movies like Yul Brynner in The Magnificent Seven. Watching Telly Savalas and Yul Brynner with their manly bald look. Years later when I lost my mane I became inspired by these two actors that shaved their heads during those years. One day I decided to shave whatever little hair I had left and started to proudly show my shiny head. The first day my wife took a good look at me, told me that I looked "sexy". That is when I took her to the eye doctor for a new pair of glasses. I have been showing my baldness proudly for a number of years and I wonder if more of my Instructables brethren share my views. Remember: God made a few perfect heads and the rest He put hair on them.

Men's Suit Pattern?

I'm looking to make my own men's suit - i.e. jacket and pants. Does any have, or have a link to, patterns for a suit? I can't find anything using google, but not having looked for patterns before, there may be an awesome resource out there that I don't know about. We are hosting a Zoolander-theme party, and I want to make an awesome suit out of animal/snakeskin print material. As a side note, how much effort would it be to make a suit? I'm not talking something that you could display as art, just something that looks the part, and wont fall apart on the night. Thanks! Alex

There are more women's clothing options than you can shake a stick at but I can't find one tutorial on men's clothing options. Are guys so afraid of coming off as gay or something? I would love it if someone could point me to tutorials on how to design and make pants(jeans, slacks,etc.). In addition, I would like to know if there are any on shirts, and jackets.

What is the best multivitamin for men to take?

Hello community, I am banging my head against the wall trying to figure out which men's multivitamin is the best for me to take. The more research I do , the more complicated things get. I read that multivitamins in pill form are the worst because of extremely low absorption rates (As low as 10%). Do capsules offer a high enough absorption rate or should I go with a liquid or spray? Spray multivitamins seem to be all the rage right now claiming an absorption rate of 90% and higher. The next problem is finding something with natural ingredients. I keep hearing about how synthetic vitamins can cause more harm to your body than good. One article said that natural vitamin A fights cancer while synthetic vitamin A isn't even suitable for a dog. To complicate things further, there are 20 other similar factors that make finding the best multivitamin very difficult. How do I tell if all the ingredients are in natural form? I just want to make sure that I am taking something that is healthy and good for my body. Does anyone have a good multivitamin recommendation for men (age 32)?

Yes Men talk at MIT - 10/26/09

The Yes Men are speaking at MIT next Monday, October 26th, in the Bartos Theater in the Media Lab (E15, on Ames St).  Wish I could pop over, but it's a long trip - if you get to go, share your thoughts. Why do you want to see this talk?  From the posting: The Yes Men have an unusual hobby: posing as top executives of corporations they hate. Armed with nothing but thriftstore suits, The Yes Men lie their way into business conferences and parody their corporate targets in ever more extreme ways – basically doing everything that they can to wake up their audiences to the danger of letting greed run our world. The Yes Men were featured in the documentary, The Yes Men Fix the World, which won the Panorama Audience Award at the 2009 Berlin Film Festival.

Once I read in a magazine about studies being done with male patients over 40 complaining of feeling tired most of the time and reduced libido. These men received testosterone replacement therapy under physician's supervision and they reported feeling more energetic, increased sexual energy and more muscle with less exercise.

The leader of the group of IN ( KILLERK )shouted a FIRE and all 34 SR-v2 men pulled the trigger. It was amazing. The WHOLE frontline was severely damaged and the medics took them out. Our guys didn't have a big loss of people, just a couple of newcomers. Then a weird thing happened. The youtube guns came out. You can imagine how well they fared.
