For example, if a movie comes out and it gets rave reviews across the board, and like 5 billion people vote on it at IMDB or whatever and everyone loves it, and you get this guy and he's like "oh that movie sucks". Well that can be an opinion.
But then if you add in food and you know a great restaurant, that is considered the best of its kind and everyone you know loves the food, and it's packed all the time and he goes "oh that place sucks, I hate their food."
Then you factor in music, women, alcohol, cars, and vacation spots and he is always opposed to an overwhelming opinion that this shit is good, then I think it's safe to say this guy has scientifically proven bad taste. I think you can do that. Yes. Don't tell me you can't.
|Bad taste in men. Scientific fact|
I got two weeks left on this diet, and then I am going to switch into mass gaining mode. That means LEAN mass gaining. And for those that think my programs are just me thinking shit up you'll see I do EXACTLY what I wrote down in there. Not sold you thought up routines or programs or philosophies. In fact, I'm excited about bringing back in some PIT's to my training because it's been a while since I trained REALLY hard like that. I've been coasting for a while, and I think in a lot of ways that is good, but I also think I'm fallen into my own "generic man" status for a little while now. I have two very solid goals I want to accomplish in the next 12-16 months, and it's time to get crackin. If you want to know them, it's 240-245 @ 10% or less bodyfat, 650 raw (no belt/no wraps) squat, 455 close grip bench, and a 700 deadlift. That puts me over 1800. I think the dead might be pushing it, but I am also beginning to figure that damn thing out too. So what the hell, let's do this.
When I get sick, I keep on trucking, sometimes making shit worse. This confuses the married females I know because they say, and I mean ALL of them, that when their guy gets sick he's the biggest baby in the world. My wife makes note that she thinks the reason this is is because as males our mother babied us when we got sick, so we find comfort in that now. Pretty interesting theory and it probably has some merit for some guys, just not me. But I don't remember my mom babying me a whole lot either. She was pretty stern with me most of the time, and really broke foot off in my ass when I wasn't treating my girl properly. Thanks mom.
I watched Collateral again this week. Man I love that movie. The only thing I don't like, is the end. I mean Vincent is Mozambique drilling everyone left and right, and in the end (spoilers) he can't win in a shoot out with a cab driver? No excuses. He lost in the shoot out with the cab driver, and its bullshit. I wanted them to spin it so that Vincent killed the target, but spared the cabbie. Maybe gave him some dough to start his limo company. The they coulda done Collateral 2. Awesome.
|The good guy, dammit!|
On the third season of The Wire. Awesome show. I still stand by the fact that I believe the first season sucked and was slow. The second and third seasons are awesome.
I'm here to tell you, that the shit that people write or say in a public way/forum/site, isn't always the truth about what they believe. Let me just say this, it makes reading some message boards interesting when some hard ass goes on and on about what he thinks he knows about some peoples opinions and peoples opinions in regards to training methodologies. Damn, that's a hell of a run on sentence eh?
My four year old goes out to play the other day, then comes back in after a few minutes.
"I'm bored out there!"
"Well I will send Buster out with you. He'll play."
"No! I want a human to play with!"
A guy at work tells me yesterday, after I asked him how much weight he had lost, that it was 34 pounds in the last month. He did this 500 calorie a day HCG Diet. He sent me the PDF because I had to see it. It worked for him. The only thing I think about when I see weight loss using those kind of extreme measures is that it doesn't set you up for long term success because it doesn't teach long term habits (probably a redundant phase there). I thought about giving it a go, not because I thought it was a good idea to lose fat, just to say I did it. I'm fairly adventurous about that kind of shit and do like to test my tolerance levels. Wisely, I talked myself out of it. I am down to just a few shakes a day and 1 food meal, but that's my normal 2 week tapering period at the end of a dieting cycle.
A guy pops in my cube yesterday and says there is a rumor floating around about him. That he used to be a cage fighter. How the fuck would a rumor like that get started? The shit people come up with sometimes.....
Speaking of cage fighting, Shogun is going to walk through Bones Jones. Yeah yeah I know he's the big up and comer and all, but Shogun has fought tall guys before that used their reach better and were better boxers. I just don't think that Shogun is going to get caught with a spinning elbow or some shit ok? I mean it's not like Jones wanted to stand and trade with Ryan Bader for peetes sake. You think he wants to stand with Shogun? Hell no. And I think Shogun will be able to keep it standing. Game over man, game over. If I'm wrong some Bones Jones crotch rider will certainly show up to let me know about it, I'm sure.

Why would the most interesting man in the world drink a god damned beer? Drink some mad dog 20/20. That would make people ask questions. And asking questions = interesting.
|More interesting than any fucking beer|
Was talking with this guy I know who runs marathons the other day and we got off on the Kenyans. People are speculating that one of them is going to break the 2 hour mark for a full marathon at some point. The is beyond freaking insane. Robert Cheruiyot is the guy from Kenya that has won it four times, with a world record of 2 hours 5 minutes and fifty two seconds. That's 26 miles averaging roughly 13 miles an hour. 13 miles an hour is the speed a lot of dudes can't get up to at all. To me these things are just as amazing as Andy Bolton deadlifting a grand or 700 pound raw bench presses. Maybe even more so because these guys are not "enhanced" (that I know of, I could be completely wrong about that).
I swear to God everyone thinks they have Native American blood in them. If the subject of heritage comes up in a conversation everyone I know says they have Cherokee or some shit in them. And it's always some pale dude with blonde or red hair that looks like he should have a kilt or fucking lucky charms outfit on. And it's never verified through genealogy either. It's the same shit every time. "Oh yeah man, I'm part Indian. My grandmother told me that she had a sister who was married to this guy and his uncle fucked this woman who had a kid from another guy that was half Cherokee. So that makes me at least like 3/4 Indian."
I wish I had some kind of machine that you put your finger into, and tells you exactly what your heritage consists of. So when this shit starts, I could whip it out, make em put their finger on it and then scream in their face how they have ZERO Native American in them.
|"My grandmother was full blooded Cherokee..."|
I hate a service departments hours. Why are their hours like 9-5 and Monday through Friday? Does that make any sense at all? Think about it. You're at work. You need shit to get done. So you gotta take off of work for this. Why don't they have hours like noon until 9 p.m.? That way when you are off work you can go? Minor rant.
Just two more weeks until I can EAT!!!!!! ARG! I'm sooooo hungry!
Everyone have a good weekend!
