I do lines of creatine before I fuck the wife.
I have only read about oral intake so for knowledge about nasal intake you would have to ask others.

Since this is an exercise and health thread you will have to be more specific: how much creatine, how often do you take it, how long does your workout take, what techniques do you use, how often do you perform these techniques.

I read earlier that circuit training is very useful, do you do that with your wife or do you focus on one technique at a time?

Everyone likes Morrowind.

Though I'll admit I'm waiting for Skywind to be released, because it has dated quite badly in terms of playability and UI.

Morrowloot basically delevels loot like Morrowind, so instead of upon getting to level 45 everyone has ebony weapons and you're finding daedric loot in every boss chest, items are handplaced into the world space regardless of level.  So bandits will only rarely carry anything above steel, and nothing above orcish/scale (for bandit bosses).  Elven and dwarven weapons and armour are only available on Thalmor patrols or in dwemer ruins, as well as on occasional bandit chiefs or in boss chests.  Glass and Ebony items are all handplaced in the world and will only be found on major faction leaders or bosses.  Orcs have Orcish armour.  Dunmer wear Chitin, Bonemold or Glass.  Daedric items are truly legendary, with only a single set existing in game, unless you craft it yourself (and additional restrictions are placed on that.  Namely, night time, Skyforge and completion of a certain quest).  Basically, if you want better tier material, you're going to have to go into (logically) dangerous places and fight things for it.

This iteration of Morrowloot is a bit better than previous ones, because it also delevels the encounter zones, meaning you can face very tough enemies early on.  It also nerfs smithing improvements and gives additional damage to higher tier weapons, so you wont feel gimped when you find an ebony blade but can improve a steel weapon to do the same damage.  Armour is similarly improved.  Potions cannot be spammed, each one overwrites the effect of the previous one, and they have an effect over time.   And this mod was made with compatibility in's easy to ruin Morrowloot's sense of balance by installing something like Immersive Weapons or Armour which will reintroduce levelled loot.

Oh and it reintroduces some specific items from earlier games.  So far I've only found the Sanguine Amulet of Smithing, but the entire Sanguine set from Morrowind is around...somewhere.
That sounds very good, I might have to start playing again.
It would make challenging areas actually feel challenging, so that alone would make me happy. For me that is essential for immersion.

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

Are you eating with this in mind?

Also, are you using whey powder?

And if you're using creatine, stop.

Why no creatine?
Sorry for butting in, this post got me reading about creatine.

Fromw what I read the main problem would be that creatine makes your muscles hold more water, drying out the rest of your body.
Short term you could pass out from dehydration.
Long term this could make your kidneys unhappy.
I would just like to say that I love these moments here, full of improvised silliness.
You like Morrowind?
Here, have a M&B: W mod:
Haven't tried it yet, good reviews though.

The mod I'm playing:
Ridiculously hard.
A lot of factions.
Is fun.

Is it weird to consider going back to school for a computer science degree solely because I just watched Ex Machina?
No, but it is weird to ask if it is weird.

Until the monsoon broke, it was 46C here.

I don't understand your Nova Scotia units of time.
It's really simple: 0C is the boiling temperature of water on a Wednesday with a humidity between 0 and 53%, while 100C is the sublimation temperature of water on the moon. It makes perfect sense once you get used to it.

All I want to know is how far it is to Victoria by train, is that so much to ask?
By train? about 0.12 seconds, Id wear a helmet though.
Trains aren't built for 46C.

We're sorry.
It's hard to find a working copy.
Maybe us filthy Euros don't deserve to hear this song?
Got one!

Anyway, in my search I have read a lot of haters but the song is quite tolerable.
It is less damaging than this.

Perdido Street Station - China China MiĆ©ville -- need a break from history and biographies.  I've been working my way down the president line. I last read John Adams but thought i'd take a break at Madison. 

Although, I'm also nearly done with vol 1 of Battlecry of Freedom by James McPhearson. My old man's a civil war buff and I thought it'd be good to get better acquainted for better conversation.
Mieville is fantastic, one of my favourite writers.

I was hoping for another Iceland but I don't think the Greeks can pull it off.
Oh cool!
Thanks for that, it explains quite a bit.

Now the second question is: who benefits if Greece defaults?

I imagine the Greek people would.

Stop comparing yourself to others, in fact, just ignore them completely.
Do stuff because it interests you and the act of doing it makes you happy, don't just do it because you get a happy from being better at it than others.

Pride is anathema to happiness.

Russia can also supply Greece with the oil it pretty desperately needs.  My understanding was that Greece previously had arrangements with Iran regarding the black gold, but the most recent set of sanctions made that impossible to continue.

It would be a significant strategic coup for Moscow...yet another reason we shouldn't be playing this dumbarse game with the Greek government.  If at the start of this whole mess we'd just written off the debt, it would've cost us less than it has now...and that's not including the political and possibly international tensions we're talking about here.  Just in strict monetary terms.
If we (by which I assume you mean the EU) are not the ones profiting, then who is?
Whoever it is, I don't like them.

The fuck does joining the army have to do with perpetuating war?
Non Serviam
Exactly, it is quite hard for a war to start if both sides have no soldiers.

It gets complicated if one side does have soldiers though.

And it is the contract that worries me, because the commitment only dances around the notion of informed consent.

Where do you get that idea?

The potential loss is difficult to grasp for most males aged 18-28, I think, from personal experience.  I don't consider myself entirely unreasonable and yet still was susceptible to suggestion.

If I may allow mself to imagine what it feels like, I'd think the 'draft' at first was breezy, like the invitation of an open door, slowly turning into a massive undertow.

This kind of training may be good but the end result is something of a complex beast.  The only way I know to kill it is not to serve it.

I have a feeling you may have a better grasp on the subject, so I wouldn't be opposed to conversation, it's your thread?

Well, we certainly can't allow people to make decisions before they're 70.
I think LuciferX is under the impression that quitting the army is always desertion and refusing to follow unethical orders will get you locked up.
That is only true during war time, so that almost never applies.
