Trying to explain to a good friend how cheating on your wife with a married woman won't fix the problems in either marriage.

Man, don't get caught up in it.

Some folks think 2 negatives always equal a positive.

You'll just get sucked into their vortex.

He's a brother in more ways than one. I have to watch out for him, even if he gets mad at me.

Two things you can't tell another man about; his money and his pussy.

Attempt to Redirect him (opinion wise) and back away. I have been there done that with a "brother". Only bad things can happen. Otherwise wifey is in charge; again only bad things can happen

Step back, no input (other than honesty) and let him go. He will come back to your friendship and you soon. Husband will find out soon enough and you want nothing to do with that.

Good luck.

Darkness never likes being exposed to the light.

I told a friend the same thing. I/he lost a friend. He lost his entire family and most of his money. Now his children will have nothing to do with him. Pussy can be like a drug, some men will not listen to any common sense and destroy their lives just for the next "hit.". I have found out, the hard way, that the key to happiness whether with women, or many other things in life, is to be content with what you have, make the best with what you have, give Thanks for what you have. There was some common sense in the Ten Commandments, whether you believe in the faith aspect them or not.

Divorces are hard enough on families, but there are likewise hard on the close friends -- especially those that are drug into the situation. Many times, they want advice, but don't truly want the "truth." They often want to hear things that fit their narrative and not the truth.

Best of luck to you brother. It's a terrible situation in which you find yourself in. I hope things end up well for all involved.

I've been there done that. Wouldn't wish it upon anyone. Sorry to hear about that situation. If there are children involved I feel the worst for them.

While having a 47 year old John Deere 140 home tractor with 3 point hitch is a very wonderful thing...
(picture isn't my tractor, but they're set up very similarly)



HOWEVER... replacing the belly mower deck's 47 year old original factory spindle bearings (3 spindles, 6 bearings) is literally a cast iron bitch.

Goes into the category of things I hate.

Or is that now poser wear and people have gone back to 5.11? It's like a never ending chase between gamer fags/airsofters and real professionals.

I first noticed this bullshit when I was in the middle of building my first Mk12mod1 and "lone survivor" came out. Like instantly overnight all the damn wannabe homosexuals started buying everything and creating huge backlogs on parts that already were becoming hard to find. Fast forward 4 years later and you got fucking LEAF windbreakers costing $400.

I hate these goddamn losers so much. If "behind enemy lines" came out tomorrow you can bet your ass an "authentic" Adidas tracksuit would suddenly be selling for $4k and a shitty SVD clones would be the next LVOA-C. Or SCAR.
I wear 5.11 pants shirts and even use their luggage. That makes them back in style.

I hate coworkers who don't have their own pocket knives or flashlights, and who want to "borrow" mine. Or just tools in general. And of course, then they act like subhumans and use knives as prybars and generally treat my tools like garbage.

Fuck you, get you own tools. S/F....Ken M

This is my biggest gripe at work, my chef knives are just that mine. I went into work one day and found one of my Global Chef knives chipped and dented by one of my co-workers. This on top of having one of my knives get stolen by a former co-worker.

You and Sharky should put your tools in a dark shed together and see what horror they spawn.

Awesome tractor.
