"2.) WHICH DO YOU PREFER, LIFTING FOR HYPERTROPHY OR FOR STRENGTH?

I prefer both, because you need to do both to maximize either. The research on non-linear undulating periodization indicates that in order to maximize long term hypertrophy you need to do some strength training and to maximize long term strength gain you must use some hypertrophy targeted training in order to optimize muscle cross sectional area. So you can’t maximize either outcome without doing at least some of both. I always say that bodybuilders could learn a lot from powerlifters and vice versa. Unfortunately, both groups tend to look down their noses at the other, which is foolish and self centered."--Layne Norton, http://www.shreddedknowledge.com/home/a-talk-with-the-doc-dr-layne-norton/
In those last two sentences, replace "bodybuilders" with "furries" and "powerlifters" with "bronies."  Seriously, the sibling rivaly/beef that powerlifters and bodybuilders often have reminds me of the brony and furry fandoms so much.

This is the best of this I've seen on YouTube, one of PDQ Bach's greatest:


Although for those of you who are wondering if he really composed it to be played on a kazoo, don't be ridiculous. It's supposed to be played on two pieces of uncooked manicotti.

Here's a terrible recording of a performance with Peter Schickele himself:


The lyrics, if you're having trouble understanding them:

The quote by the Tumblr Founder & CEO, not the whiner below his quote.
Yes, you read that right.  Even the site's creator hates what his site is.

You can see that he too is angry by the use of "sexually repressed" as a qualifier ... Which is completely unwarranted in that context. But I would be pissed too if I were him.

It makes sense that, if he hates what Tumblr has become, that he also will be angry with it. :-)

a lot of hinduism related comments over the last few months: aside from "I am become death, destroyer of Worlds", we now have:

"I am become angst, destroyer of fun" -Tumblr dounder (my condolences to him)

"I am become Anders, destroyer of plots" -Smudboy

"I am become *****, destroyer of trust" -Me, about recent...events...

"I am become hipsters, destroyer of open apartments in Logan" -long story here.

what gives?  :P
"All you guys complaining about the possibility of guy on guy relationships...you're also denying us girl on girl.  Works both ways if you know what I mean"

yep--Oppenheimer was quoting the Bhagavad Gita: Vishnu said it IIRC.

As to your question? I don't want to talk about it. I just find it funny that a lot of things being said lately seem to be based on this one line XD

I will tell you about the last one: finding an apartment in Logan, UT, sucks...too many other Graduate Students moving in--I can't find a place without someone being approved of for moving in while I'm negotiating (or even after application).

never-mind that I don't have tuition support (or funding--aside from the money I've saved)*, and am also having trouble finding a job up there while I am studying: I'm starting to regret accepting that offer to go there--but I'm not getting any younger, and the sooner I can go there the sooner I can forget about the shit from the next to last part, and the sooner I am one step closer to my PhD...

btw, when is the next live chat thing? won't see me on camera, but I'd like to attend just once.

EDIT: I know, shameless, but anyone here want to relieve me of my Chevy Silverado? I tire of paying 500/month for it, and I need to cut on all my expenses.

*I only accepted on the understanding that my adviser, Dr. Lidell, ensure that I have funding for next year, so I can make the switch to a full program...didn't help that it was the only place that offered: all the others basically told me to shag off (though they did admit that it was a mistake...If they think so, why tell me no? meh...)...I do have money saved to pay for one semester though

I was thinking Thursday maybe. We could go over this nonsense: http://johnquiggin.com/2011/04/16/i-pencil-a-product-of-the-mixed-economy/

That's funny because in a game of Cards Against Humanity, I got "I am become white privilege, destroyer of The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr."
