So you're one of those who wears his watch upside down!

Is there a specific reason for this?


I've heard various reasons for it like "it protects the watch face" or "it's more tactical because it doesn't catch the light easier"

But it's honestly because all the drill instructors at boot camp wear them that way so recruits can't see the time on their watches (there are literally no clocks at bootcamp). And Marines just kinda emulate everything from their DI's. Now it just feels weird wearing it the "correct way"

I had no idea that was a Marine thing O_O I wear my watches the same way.

Totally random fact: I have small wrists, so lots of watches I buy I have to get them custom fitted. But until I took them to the jeweler I'd just wear them upside down, because gravity would just pull them that way anyways so it was more comfortable. Now i just wear watches like that all the time.

Another random fact: I set one of my watches to military time just for fun. Then I lost the instructions for how to set it. Now I don't know how to change it so most of the time I have no idea what time it is and use my smartphone anyways. I could probably figure that out but I excel at laziness.

Anyways, here's both my mug and face from 2011

Here is a photo of me when I was 18ish. I did a lot of hard work for a very successful family friend. One day he literally threw his Ferrari keys to me and told me to go pick up some girls. That Changed my life forever.

I'm so glad you asked, because I LOVE mugs. I'm sad to say my son smashed the one on the right not long after I got it (last year at our city's art festival).

from a spiritual point of view , the " i am " is not the body

the " i am " is your level of consciousness


here is what i mean

me vision.jpg


who are you ?

people will say " me, my body , me my family, me my job "



i will answer: " i am not my body , i am not a job , i am my vision , i am consciouness saying " i am " at a superior level "


so my mug is this : my vision, a life of meaning and intelligence in the mountains

That's not what this thread is for. You do not need to turn a simple request into a pseudo-intellectual rambling.

Edit: User removed original post. Just clarifying so I don't seem like a crazy person.
