Sure, tons! In no particular order:

  1. Pick up a book. The two best intros are How to Brew and The Complete Joy of Homebrewing. My girlfriend and I started with How to Brew. It can be a little science-y, but it was a great beginner's book that starts with the basics and gets more complicated as it goes. Basically the first chapter is enough to brew a beer, but the next few chapters help you learn how brewing works, and so on. I've never read The Joy of Homebrewing, but I've heard it's just as good, only a little less science based and more "fun and accessible." Really, either one is probably great.

    Also, How to Brew is based off a blog, and a lot of the book is on there. If you don't know which book you'd prefer start with A Crash Course in Brewing and decide if it's for you or if you'd like something a little more readable.

  2. Google around and see if you have a local homebrew shop. Lots of them offer classes, and sometimes local breweries will have homebrew classes on groupon or living social. Often times the beer you drink is work the price of the class, and it's super helpful to see brewing done first hand. This is actually how I got into it: I used buy beer at my LHBS in Ft Lauterdale, and saw that classes were only $30 and came with beer and food. I signed up with my girlfriend - no intention to start brewing, just thought it'd be a fun Saturday - and wound up totally hooked.

  3. Use the community, people love talking about brewing. If you're not sure how to make something work for you, someone's probably been there. Ask folks in your LHBS if you have one, post in /r/homebrewing, heck even just come back some time and reply to this post and I'll be more than happy to tell you what I know. I was worried because when I moved to DC I lost the outdoor space I used to brew in Florida, and couldn't get 5 gallons of beer boiling on a regular stove. I mentioned it casually to another brewer and he walked me through adapting recipes for smaller, more concentrated boils to be topped up to 5 gallons afterwards. Now I can brew on my electric apartment stove and haven't seen any loss of quality.

    Sorry if that's a total data dump, I just love chatting about and getting new people into brewing. If you ever give it a try, let me know how it goes!

I've been at it a while, but my approach to music is not traditional. There's a few paths to go down. Learning to read sheet music is a very difficult path, especially to start, on guitar. You want to start by learning chords. get a chord chart/poster and learn the major chords. you can play a very large percentage of songs just knowing major chords.

Also, get a capo. change key, easily play more songs with the same chords.

I was learning hey jude on piano the other night and when I looked up the music, the guitar chords were already there. easy enough. you find this in lots of music books lately. I also played guitar and other string instruments at church for a number of years, just from knowing chords. nothing fancy, but great practice.

If you want to get into advanced technique stuff, I'd save that for later months. and I can point you in some different directions for that

there is something online called 'tablature' or just 'guitar tabs' and it basically can write out songs for you in a notation that is a number on a bar and staff represeting the fret position of a note to play. it makes more sense than bar and staff , but I wouldn't call it 'reading music'. it's definitely the practical approach to learning guitar, however, and I would never frown upon it.

here's a quick example of tablature. There are also tons of apps (ipad/phone/computer) for using this notation to learn.

My seven-year-old daughter and five-year-old son both love these games. They’re both quite affordable and well-rated.

Sleeping Queens

This is a nice little card game targeted at kids. I find it interesting enough to not be completely mind numbing for adults, too — though it’s definitely a kids game.


This is an adult strategy that was given to me as a gift, but is quite playable for both of my kids — despite saying it’s for 10 years and up. One nice thing about this game is that there is no hidden info, so it’s easy to advise and assist others without having to see something that is normally private. It’s a fun game with somewhat simple strategy, but that can actually be a bit more deep or advanced than it initially might seem.

Sure thing.

I first came across the discussion about the origin on this podcast:

I also highly recommend reading Joseph Ellis’s book, “The Quartet”, which gives an excellent discussion about the process of how the Constitution came to replace the Articles of Confederation.

These two sources were the most impactful to me, and there’s been many other sources here and there that have helped fill in between the lines. I live in Richmond, VA, where numerous historical markers show just how big of a deal slave revolts were to the founding society.

I’m currently reading “The Second Ammedment: a Biography” by Michael Waldman.

Quick follow up:

If you want to also read like 20K pages of awesome, then go get yourself a copy of "On Basilisk Station." It's the first book in the series, and if this chapter doesn't already hook you, that book certainly will. (The excerpt in from "The Shadow of Saganami," but you're going to want more context than just starting with this book.) I haven't listened to the audio book, they're not really my thing, but the paperback can be had for $7.

It seems to me that most opposition (but not all) to firearms takes one or more of the following forms:

  1. Lack of knowledge: Many anti-gun protestors lack context, operational knowledge, and historical foundations of why the United States has the 2nd Amendment. Consequently, this leads to statements like "fully semi-automatic" or "sole purpose is to kill." This ignorance, while not malicious in intent, leads to uninformed assumptions and recommendations which sometimes achieve the opposite of what was intended. It can also ignore the evidence that shows that violence as a whole has been reducing for decades, much higher risks from other criminal (or daily) activities, and the fact that defensive use of firearms absolutely eclipses illegal use. This ignorance is magnified based on US media which seeks controversy and has its own biases and ignorance blindspots.

  2. Disagreement on the effectiveness as a bulwark against tyranny: Many in opposition either believe that an armed civilian populace would either be unable to resist the government should it become tyrannical, don't believe the government could ever become tyrannical, or believe that such a risk to be so minimal as not worth protecting against.
  3. Lack of compatible values: This may be the toughest bridge to cross. Some don't morally agree with the usage of firearms in any context. Like their pro-liberty 2A counterparts, arguments can quickly spiral into emotionally charged exchanges because people feel that disagreement is an assault on their core beliefs and values. This is often summed up by anti-gun crowd stating, "Some liberty must be curtailed for the safety and security of all" and the pro-liberty folks saying, "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

    So - where do we start? I would suggest that people who want to better understand the 2A folks read, "More Guns, Less Crime" by John Lott. It's not that I would expect you'll come away from it with your opinions changed. Rather, it should give you some understanding of why people support civilian ownership of firearms for defensive usage. Additionally, I think given that the majority of the world does not enjoy the enshrined freedoms Americans have within the Constitution, they would have an even harder time understanding why some Americans feel that the 2nd Amendment is the guarantee for all of them. I don't have a solution on how to share that experience other than to talk to those people who can rationally entertain tough questions on it.

    Suffice to say, I think Destin and Matt did an extraordinarily evenhanded approach to the topic with the care and attention that they've given to many subjects. They were not there to be cultural warriors or to setup a debate. I think they were just sharing their thoughts and ideas on what continues to be a challenging topic of the day.

So counter point to your first point. You can still find this on amazon. It took me less than five minutes in google.

Second point , there is no way anyone can debate this, simply because you are arguing using feelings. People will still commit violent crimes they will just use what is the most easiest to obtain ie the spike in acid attacks in european countries that have banned firearms.

three ,Concerning the safari ball idea, while its a nice idea its not very practical. How am i supposed to prevent wild animals especially feral pigs from destroying any agricultural land whether farm or personal garden. Those suckers run in packs of anywhere from 5 to 20 that i have seen. Also a common argument to the populace being able to arm themselves is to prevent tyrannical action on the part of government. How are you supposed to defend your self from a govt that is spends the most out of any country when you cant even own a weapon from the same technological era.
