Teach him to appreciate a fine scotch (instead of the cheap stuff)

Antibiotics?

Narcan?






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

It was so much easier back when you'd just get him his own Playboy Club Key


Had one of my own at age 18 but alas that was last century when choices seemed a lot simpler.

A 23 year old stripper...

Or just fly him to Vegas, and have the limo from one of the legal brothels outside Vegas pick him up...

[Whoops, my bad. I was thinking my kid, not a nephew, when I answered. I’ll leave it and say here, for a nephew, something like going to a scotch tasting night together.)


If I had a kid on the cusp of 21, I’d save up, and when the time came, I’d open brokerage accounts, one for me and one for the young in’, then throw down the gauntlet.

Biggest account at the end of two years, takes all.

Just some hijinks to get them thinking about making their money grow/work for them, giving them a chance to play with how risk averse they are or aren’t, learn when to hold’em, learn when to fold’em, etc.

That and a road trip somewhere, of some length, just the two of us, with me under an ‘Ask Me Anything (and I’ll actually answer)’ agreement for the duration of the trip. big grin smiley

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I have a 20-year-old nephew in college, and it's like pulling teeth to get him to say what he wants for Christmas and birthdays. Generally comes down to money of some kind--either directly or in the form of an Amazon or Steam card. Not very satisfying from my perspective, but college kids are... college kids.

Stocks and bonds.

That is far too practical and wise...
It would probably pay off better in the long term, though.
Maybe compromise? A not-so-high end strip club evening, and some money in a brokerage account?

.....my nephew is the same way, hard to get an answer of what he wants......as someone young, I just give cash [ a red envelope ]......

....don't give retailer gift card unless you know he will use it.....hate it when someone gives an 'Amazon' gift card because some don't ever shop at Amazon, so it is worthless.....give cash or a general amex or visa/mastercard gift card.....I think cash is always welcome....
