Re: I suppose we should have a Qanon thr& or something

I dunno, I think Jeffrey Epstein showed that the rot goes to the top.

Q-Anon or not, his history is out there.

Re: I suppose we should have a Qanon thr& or something

No one in their right mind is for child trafficking. But that is a separate issue folded into the Q-Anon narrative. Discrediting Q-Anon by no means now legitimizes the abuse of kids. It’s a huge crime, both legislatively and morally, and nothing is going to change that. Unfortunately, like all crime...

Re: Wu Flu

A friend just lost her brother-in-law, an ER doctor who got it treating patients, a man in his early 50's.

He died last night.

Be careful please. :heart:

Re: I suppose we should have a Qanon thr& or something

First off, what a giant, obvious, pile of bullshit.

Second, it's sad that there is a trickle down effect to non-believers. If you have enough people saying that Covid is a hoax, and that the election was stolen, people start believing those things.

New Guy, you might enjoy "The Black Count": https://www.amazon.com/Black-Count-Revolution-Betrayal-Cristo/dp/0307382478 The story of Alexander Dumas' father, of the same name. Won the Pulitzer Prize in 2013. I loved it. And I ordered the Rocket Scientist book you suggested. ---- Finished &...

Re: Crypto

About 8-9 years ago, me and my roommates enrolled in an entrepreneur class via Stanford. They recommended you buy one bitcoin (going at 500$ then). One roommate had just read Warren Buffet's value investing book and argued it had no inherent value. Now he's a multi-millionaire, and crypto expert, wh...

Re: How are we feeling about rioters this week?

I'm glad when Trump was elected in 2016 I told myself -- after a few days of empty despair about how half the US was conned by this sociopathic compulsive liar -- that "no matter how bad I think it's gonna be, it'll be worse." And that includes the sad fact that otherwise rational, good, p...

What a good finale!

The Book of Boba Fett looks like it has a lot of potential as does The Bad Batch animated series.

Re: Battling Depression

I think for the majority of people who come to see personal trainers, their objective is to move more weight, get faster, get leaner, etc. But we are preaching to the choir. At least 60% of Americans don't exercise (or don't think they do) because we have framed exercise as something we do in the g...

Syaigh, I wasn’t aware of the Agita Sao Paolo program. I included a link if anyone’s interested: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/14662077/ I constantly forget as a personal trainer that some movement is better than nothing and get caught up in strength training, cardio, flexibility, and diet.

Re: Battling Depression

Dad shot himself. My son goes through dark spells. And about 3-5x a year, it descends like a cloud on me. I'm convinced this shit is genetic. Anyway, my two cents: Exercise, per the earlier suggestion in this thread, is massively helpful. It's often/usually the thing that snaps me out of it. But yo...

Re: Battling Depression

A nice update: The eldest cousin shared a short-story he wrote yesterday with me, his first ever. It’s quite good, but more importantly, it’s the first significantly productive thing he’s done in over a year. I’ve been mindful of just being his friend and it’s been a positive boost to our relationsh...

Re: Battling Depression

Great thoughts, Doctor. There’s a lot of failure at a lot of levels. But the biggest I think is connection to one another. Part of that is the collapse of religion without something better or equal to take its place. For what it’s worth I believe in God, and in having a practical philosophy that wor...

Re: Battling Depression

I think that's awesome. Good on you. I think its important to just be there sometimes. It can be more stressful when someone is always trying to fix you. And when they trust you, they will ask you for help when they think they need it. They are very lucky to have you. Thanks Syaigh :) I was distanc...
