Deckard: Youíre in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, itís crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on it's back. The tortoise lays on it's back, it's belly baking in the hot sun, beating it's legs trying to turn it'self over, but it canít, not without your help. But youíre not helping. Why is that?

What the everloving shit?!

Who is this Deckard person?  A quick google of the name didn't lead me to anything I would immediately connect.
Rick Deckard, using the Kobayashi Maru to find out if Harry Potter is the Kwisatz Haderach.

Was he?
He used to be in a barbershop quartet in Skokie, Illinois. The baritone was this guy named Kip Diskin, big fat guy, I mean, like, orca fat


Through blasphemous punomancy discovered God's c:ute root chakra, not subject to standard polydimensional NDA and is literate, we're all fucked


I've tried very hard to help him get through his homework, but he has an unusual personality trait in that anything remotely challenging frustrates him to tears and he gives up.  I think it is related to having a 7 yr old overachieving sister who likes to prove she is better than he is.  But seriously, he would rather watch YouTube videos of people playing Mario Bros because actually playing the game is too hard.

I think my girlfriend's 6 yr old son may be dislexic.  I was under the impression that that's too you to tell, but I was wondering if anyone could point out a "giveaway"

I seem to remember hearing about a link between creatine use and seizures.

I'd just like to be Abe Lincoln strong. 

Abe Lincoln didn't need creatine.

I take a multivitamin every other day or so.  Other than than, typical northern midwest diet.

I just said that because while I'm working out, I tend to feel a little nauseous sometimes - but I noticed that afterwards, I'm not so sore as to inhibit my daily activities.

Thanks for the encouragement.  I've found fighting the urge to puke for, say, 30 minutes, is preferable to what I can only describe as prolonged limb agony

No, I don't even know what my max is.  I'm usually alone, so I try to do a weight that I can comfortably do 10 reps on the first set.  That way, I can stop at 5 or 7 reps on the 2nd or 3rd set if I feel I'm straining myself.

would those of you that have a trainer (or training experience?) mind asking (or providing) some feedback regarding what i believe is called circuit training?

i'm not really looking to bulk up - just tone and shed fat.  i'm pretty satisfied with my current size and strength level - mainly just trying to shed the beer gut without giving up beer and i sure as shit fucking hate doing cardio.

what i've begun doing is, instead of doing 3 sets of 5 to 10 reps (depending on the excercise) and then moving on to the next exercise is doing 1 set of each excercise with no breaks in between.  i then do 3 "circuits" so, in the end, its still 3 sets of everything.  each muscle group gets a break, but I don't because i immediately move to the next exercise.

i've found it to definitely increase my sweat production and respiration -so it seems to be combining the benefits of weight training with the benefits of cardio (i fucking hate doing cardio)

another bonus to this style workout is that it shaves about 10 minutes off my workout time since i'm not taking breaks between sets. 

for me, 10 minutes sometimes means the difference between "do i have time to work out today?"

1 circuit for me consists of:

dead lift
shoulder shrugs
bent over row
bench press
crunches (20 reps here)
plank (1 minute on each side)
shoulder raises

i do this 3 times per week.

i've read a lot of mixed opinions online but would appreciate some "real world" opinions

This heat.

I haven't slept for more than 2-3 hours uninterrupted all week. I'm starting to feel like a frog in boiling water, only the sadist is fucking incompetent so they've had to jam a lid on the top which I keep slamming my skull into.

This is how supervillains are made.

Keep it up, sun, and I will find a way to END YOU  :argh!:

Could be worse.

My flat makes it so that it's 10-20 degrees hotter inside than outside, day or night.  It's clearly some kind of building error (possibly the boiler) but whatever it is, it means I've slept 10 hours over the past 4 nights.  I'm sweating just sitting down and typing this, and I have a fan on full power behind me.
