Re: The Taking of Pelham 123

This was a recipe for overacting. So I wasn't shocked when it was overacted.* Goddamn I hate that fucking John Travolta. He is less believable than a fucking birthday party magician. *I fucking hate the way I write. The text leading up to the asterisk is just pure shit laziness. Talentless... I left...

Re: Cormac McCarthy

McCarthy has a whimsical poetic style not found too often in contemporary literature. I'm not a huge fan of that style of writing, though he pulls it off without the stench of a try hard, making it more enjoyable than his like-styled predecessors. I enjoy his shit, and he is clearly an insightful pe...

Magic and Bird: courtship/rivals

I'm a big fan of documentaries, and this is one of the best I've seen.

It is currently an On Demand option on HBO. Anyone else catch it?

Re: The couch thread

That "wall ball" exercise depicted above is a shawn sherk favorite, so it's probably pretty legit considering he knows a thing or two about mma training. But yes, xfitters can fag anything up. It makes me smile that there is some track athlete dominance over some faggy crossfitters. Also...that couc...

Re: Moon (spoiler alert, don't read or it'll fuck it up for

Truly one of the best observations on the human experience I've seen in a while. It would be utterly staggering to realize that not only will you never realize the happiness you've been looking forward to your entire episodic existence, but that it never existed for you in the first place. There are...

Re: Looking for knowledge

Tom, Thanks for the advice sir. I do the asamov squat as depicted in the video above. I still have some of the ole itis in my left patellar tendon, but it's reduced significantly. A great ancillary benefit of this pain reduction has been new PR's in push press and behind the neck push press, because...

Re: Looking for knowledge

Drop the weight and use perfect form. I have some similar issues and that's what I do. Of course I am squatting purely for my own development, but it does work. This. Even consider doing Amasov squats to get the knees, hips, back, to track properly and get your groove back. Take some hot yoga in th...

Looking for knowledge

Well, got squat symmetry issues. Caused initially by patellar tendonitis, which I still have. Any information a quick google won't give me would be much appreciated, as this is a very frustrating, and reoccuring problem. Started squatting quite a bit lately (3x a week, heavy all days). Using a low b...

Good looking women are mostly fucking retards. So if you want to fuck one, chances are you will be following in the footsteps of some abominable fucking douche bag. It's a reality of life. Deal with it or fuck ugly chicks, where it's still a dice roll.

The story he tells is that he dropped out of school and is rather proud of it. His philosophies were to badass and extreme to be cramped up by the limitations found in traditional academia. In order to find his genius, you must do away with all notions of logic, science, empiricism and the like - o...

Maybe crossfit is the perfect training method for hockey...or swimming...or skiing. I think that's probably a good explanation.

I wanna hear, in explicit detail, about how you smashed the local crossfitters. Did the males cry with shame and envy? Did the females swoon with hormone-driven desire? And did you prop your feet up on the nearest desk, lean back, and unleash your unholy grin of triumph? I should've known some limp...

I don't get the "broad time and modal domains" shit. Never having done crossfit, I smashed local crossfitters in time and weight when a coworker challenged me that the workouts were like nothing I'd ever seen, and convinced me to go to his crossfit gym. Apparently sprinting and powerlifting make you...
