    First honest cable ad

    Edit: language may not be safe for work. Definitely not safe for work if you work for a cable company. Yep.. That is about right. http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130904/10575524401/youtube-takes-down-hilarious-mock-cable-ad-over-totally-bogus-defamation-claim.shtml Why drive myself crazy trying to be normal, when I am already at crazy?

    Definitions of theft - random musings

    THe milk is intended to be shared by all. By taking it and keeping it for onesself, I believe it is theft. Obviously no-one will go to jail for it, but it is still pretty shoddy form. Why drive myself crazy trying to be normal, when I am already at crazy?

    New Robocop?

    Who will see this? http://io9.com/first-trailer-robocop-trailer-shows-off-robocops-brand-1260308550 At first I thought of this as yet another in a long sting of attempts by Hollywood to capitalize on old successes by doing a remake. A remake that simply did not need to be done. The original was a classic. Violent and gory? Yes. Funny? Hell yeah. But more than that, it was a satire of modern commercialization, corrupt politics, and corporate culture. It reflected its times beautifully. I have been hearing some compelling reasons to go see it though. So I am willing to entertain the idea... Why drive myself crazy trying to be normal, when I am already at crazy?

    AFF Progress!

    I used to perform horse stunts every day in a show. One of them was to jump off the horse while it was charging at a full canter. If you know what you are doing, it is reasonably safe. But it still scared the crap out of me each time. And each time I would psych myself up by singing a bad ass tune to myself to make me feel a little tougher. It helped a lot. My song was War Pigs.

    Malfunction - entangled lines

    I guess I'd just be curious and ask. But aside from that, I am glad you got out safe and sound, and that you are jumping safely! Nice work

    Another thing to consider is the timing of your meals. When you are not eating, or eating small... LIGHT snacks, your body is in its fight and flight mode. Your caveman you is out there hunting/gathering, and is ready to chase down a gazelle or run from a lion. Your body is not worried about building up, repairing, breeding, etc etc. Your insulin levels are low, and as a result you do not build up as much fat. EDIT: You also burn up fat as an energy reserve more readily. When you eat a meal, your body starts going into the rest and digest mode. Your body repairs itself (including repairing muscle damage that results from hitting the weights) and your insulin levels rise to cope with the added carbs, thereby increasing fat levels. If the meal is big enough, you can get post-prandial somnolence: Your body is saying 'Oh! BIG meal, eh? Guess I have time to sleep then and do all the repairs I need..' thus sushi and turkey coma. If you do away with a big breakfast, and stick to just a few SMALL snacks during the day, then hit the gym, or do your workout before dinner, and eat fairly soon after, you will find your body is burning off fat faster. Again, make sure you are getting all the nutritional requirements your body needs, don't over eat, and most importantly get exercise. And stay away from shit food and drinks. I would lay off even fruit juice. It has a lot of fructose, which will add to body fat. Eat the fruit instead. Why drive myself crazy trying to be normal, when I am already at crazy?

    Famine mode is terribly misunderstood. It is not something that happens if you miss a meal or two. It is something that happens over a long period of time when you are not receiving the right amount of food. http://voices.yahoo.com/starvation-mode-dispelling-myths-2900886.html http://body-improvements.com/resources/eat/#starvationmode Why drive myself crazy trying to be normal, when I am already at crazy?

    Actually the maths is NOT that simple. It's true we are what we consume .vs. what we expend BUT calories are a shite simplification in the process. Calories are 'estimated' based upon burning the substance in a Bomb-Calorimeter... we don't BURN food, we process it chemically. 1000calories of say paper would not have the same effect on our bodies as 1000calories of sugar which would not have the same effect on our bodies as 1000calories of Beef. The calorie count is an INDICATION but it's not the whole story. Different foods are processed and effect our Blood Chemistry (and thus our bodies) in different ways. Eat Less and Exercise more - Sure - that is the right thing to do BUT be VERY aware of exactly what you eat and the Micro-Nutient make up of those foods. Aye.. agreed :) As the last sentence of my post shows. Why drive myself crazy trying to be normal, when I am already at crazy?

    According to their website, they require you to have an A at Eloy. All the same, you could send them an email explaining your situation. Eloy is the Big Place in the skydiving world, from what I am told. Why drive myself crazy trying to be normal, when I am already at crazy?

    The math is dead simple: Calories consumed > calories used means weight gain. Calories consumed < calories used means weight loss. Eat less, exercise more. And try to make the food you eat healthy, because you will be eating less. Why drive myself crazy trying to be normal, when I am already at crazy?
