Blog Guy, I want to enlist in the military, but I need to be sure I’m in the most bad-ass, macho, kick-butt outfit my country has to offer. So what should I ask for? Afghanistan? Iraq?

I see we have a story offering etiquette tips on how to dress for the office during the summer. This helps me a lot, because my “office” is in my home. My coworkers are two dogs and two cats, so I’m afraid my dress code may be slipping as the heat rolls in. I need some good advice.

Blog Guy, I hear your career advice is great. I’m graduating soon, and I’ll be looking for something good. My dad always said I should have a desk job.

Act like you can’t see the guy with the bomb over there….

Blog Guy, your career advice has been invaluable to others, and I want to run something past you. Some recruiters came to our college and handed out brochures about entering the exciting field of Improvised Explosive Devices. Do you think I should consider this?

Do you see any sweat? My deodorant keeps me dry for hours!
