PBS got in touch with his inner Donatello to remind us to be at the convergence June 10. Or he’ll kills us, or something like that.

Pythagoras is offering a 2nd F opportunity at his pad on Friday


I shared that we are more of a tribe than a cult. F3 is a self-sufficient and distinct people with a set of values that is different from the mainstream and dominant society. Our tribe’s mission is to conquer the Tribe of Sad Clowns and convert them to our way of life; that is, men who pursue excellence and have the courage to confront our weakness to get stronger.

Today we welcomed Cold Call to our tribe. Cold Call is a graduate of Milligan, but he works at ETSU (where he does fundraising, thus the name)
