Three Types of Mens Shorts

Mens shorts come in many different colors, styles, and lengths. As a man, you have wide ranges of choices in mens shorts, depending on your likes and dislikes. Some include great fabrics and are extremely comfortable. Other mens shorts offer a wide array of colors and textures that fit any occasion or event.

In addition, the range of customized shorts from different designers is endless. You can choose anywhere from shorts with zippers or buttons to personalized embroidery and stitching on the fabric. Be careful not to fall into the trap of buying the first pair of shorts you find. Since there are so many different styles of mens shorts, try on several different pairs before making a final decision.

The following are some basic styles to consider while shopping for mens shorts:

Pleated Shorts

Pleated shorts are always in fashion on the golf course, however, try not to venture out and wear them to more formal occasions like dinner parties and social events. These shorts are always comfortable, but don't find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time while wearing them. With the casual style and cut of these shorts, you should probably wear them at less casual events.

Gym Shorts

The only time gym shorts look good on men is in the gym or at an athletic event. Although many men can't resist wearing them (due to the fact that they're so comfortable), don't make the mistake of wearing gym shorts in public. It seems that men will sacrifice nearly everything and cope with disapproving glances for the sake of wearing a comfortable pair of shorts.


Jorts are cutoffs or jean shorts. Unless you're a five-year-old boy (or want to wear them around the house where no one can see you), you probably shouldn't wear them at all. Jorts can certainly be considered a fashion faux paus, and fortunately, most people choose not to wear them.


The Five Factor Values Test

You are Loyal, Generous, Humble and Tolerant


You value loyalty a fair amount.
You're loyal to your friends... to a point.
But if they cross you, you will reconsider your loyalties.
Staying true to others is important to you, but you also stay true to yourself.


You don't really value honesty.
You do value getting your way, no matter what.
And if a little lying is required to do that, no problem.
A few white lies never hurt anyone (at least, that's what you tell yourself!)


You value generosity a fair amount.
You are all about giving, as long as there's some give and take.
Supportive and kind, you don't mind helping out a friend in need.
But you know when you've given too much. You have no problem saying "no"!


You value humility a fair amount.
You tend to be an easy going, humble person.
But occasionally your ego takes over.
You have a slight competitive streak - and the need to be the best.


You value tolerance a fair amount.
You are open to new cultures, beliefs, and ideas.
You have very few prejudices that you're aware of.
And while you are tolerant, you do stand true to what you believe.


Common Poker Mistakes: Playing Every Hand

The mistakes made by new Texas Holdem players are frequently the exact same ones. One of the most common is to play every hand. If not every hand is played, then beginners still frequently play more hands than they should. This is especially true in low limit games, including online games at casinos like Caesars Online, where playing a hand may only cost a very small amount of money. However, you must remember that you're also developing habits that will last a long time in these beginning poker rooms. Here are reasons why you shouldn't play every hand.

Playing every hand will quickly drain your money, even when it doesn't seem like it. Your stack may only go down a little bit at a time, but if it goes down frequently enough, you will quickly run out of money. That money is meant for better things, like betting when you have a strong hand. There's no reason to waste it on two sevens off-suit.

Playing every hand is statistically a horrible decision. The hands that are really worth playing only come around every so often. Even though it's exciting to play frequently, and even though you may get lucky once every few hands, it's statistically better to reserve your chips for your truly solid cards. Bring an iPod to the table with you if necessary, but don't let boredom force you onto the table when it's disadvantageous.

When starting out at limit tables, which is where you should generally start, it's important to play no more than one out of every three hands. Even this is more frequent than you really should play, but it's a good starting point and will help you narrow down your selection of cards. Obviously, though, if you get pocket aces back to back, you should play them both.
