  1. 1. Which moderator's cunt smells the worst?



Recommended Posts

fuck off furfags

_____________________________________________

So here's the deals.  I got a bit porky over the last little bit, so my GF is paying me to go to the gym moar better.  I have to go 5x a week 40 minutes a day and if I do I get $100 a week that I can spend on fun things, like internet tank golds.

So I figure its time to do something I've never done.  I need to become Swolebad.

I've been reasonably fit before, but mostly just what I was born with.  I was born naturally athletic and never had to work at it much; I could pass all the strength tests and such my teams have required just naturally.  The moast I've ever done was light lifting 2x a week just to stay lean.  Never to bulk. I don't know shit about lifting. But to be perfectly honest I have naturally broad shoulders and a tight, narrow ass (mmmhhhhmm), so I figure I can look like a greek god with minimal effort while continuing to slam down dr pepper and cheetos and tanking all night every night.

I've got a year, and want to gain about 20-25 lbs of muscle, concentrated in the forearms, shoulders, and dick.

Wat 2 do? 

Hi Garbad, You can't go wrong focusing on the basics: pull ups, push ups, deadlifts, and squats. But be aware that the last two, while extremely beneficial, are difficult to get right for beginners. Good coaching and lots of practice with light weights may be necessary before you are sure of your form. For starters, you might want to do deadlifts holding the end of a heavy dumbbell and using a sumo-wrestler-type form. That's pretty easy for beginners and a great power exercise. Good luck!

This (pull ups sound like the one exercise best suited to your goals).  And remember that getting slim is 95% diet, 5% exercise.  Putting on significant bulk requires extra calories, so looking like a greek god and gaining muscle mass are generally opposing goals unless you're rather out of shape.

Oh, and for fantasy recommendations REH is among the best there is.  Too bad cinematic versions of his works have generally been butchered so badly they make GoT and LoTR look like flawlessly loyal adaptations.

Temple by Matthew Reilly is one of his best imo and gives you a taste of his writing style. It's also not part of a recurring character series so you don't feel as obligated to keep reading his books if they're not your thing. If however you do find yourself liking his fast pace action style, I'd suggest Ice Station to read after Temple.

Brent Weeks is a little more fantasy'ish, his Night Angel Trilogy is exceptional, I can highly recommend it.

I'll take a look at it.

I am reading Marius' Mules I: The Invasion of Gaul at the moment and it isn't bad. Kind of like the Harry Sidebottom stuff. Maybe not quite as good.

Yeah, I've read them.  Not too bad.

i think you mean shitty machine lifting which is far from traditional. Trx is a subset of gymnastic movements and thus very very traditional. 

I...have mostly only used machina.  I did a very little bit of free weights but quit because I didn't like all that weight crushing my tender, soft hands.

Oh, I know.  I've been to the gym more or less faithfully for like 7 years.  I just don't lift much.  But eating clean and staying fit is no trouble.  I just want to bulk up, which I've never done.

Don't. You will get fat(ter) anyway as soon as you are 30 years old (+-5 years). You will regret if you artificially gain weight now :-)

This is from a true story Gash told me the other night:

So I stumble into the gym, bleary eyed and hung over.  Another late night of playing tanks and self loathing.  This isn't good for my psyche, brah.  I gotta get hyped, stay motivated, and be all I can be.  I grab a towel, decide to do a little light cardo -- I'm not sure I can handle much else.  Staying positive, man.  I can barely keep my eyes open.

Next thing I know, I realize I've been staring straight ahead in a daze for like 15 minutes.  Like I'm fixated.  And naturally, there is some gal in super tight gym shorts running on the machine right in front of me.  I don't mean jogging, I mean like running.  Sprinting.  Bolting, as it were.  This gal is full on sprinting longer than I can manage to jog.  Kinda crazy.  And...dat ass.  Not bad at all.  Oh, shit, I'm staring again.  Bad form, man.  Peeks are ok but this is full on leering.  Gotta keep it together.  She's probably just trying to tone up before her wedding anyhow, knowing my luck. Look away.

Although, now that you think about it, that ass looks kind of familiar.  Could it be -- No.  It can't be.  She doesn't even live in this state.  But that ass does look familiar.  Although I suppose all asses look kind of similar in black shorts.  Especially the small, shapely ones.  She's a slim, lithe, but tall gal -- perfect for bending into a pretzel during sexytimes.  Don't get me wrong; I don't really have a clue why its so sexy to get a BJ while the girl is doing a lunging dog handstand or whatever but I've seen enough porn to know it is.  Besides, its probably not her.  Just a similar looking ass.  It doesn't even matter.  Really this whole scene is just the metaphor of my life - here I am running in place chasing some interchangeable ass that I'll probably never even speak to.  But I have to know, right?  Could it be Taylor?  Right as I was forming the words to ask what she was doing in a place like this, you realize something has changed.  Oh shit, she stopped running; she's turned around looking right at me.  Fuck, busted.  She knows I was staring at her ass.

Eyes up!  Wait a minute, that's not Tay.  Not even close.  This gal is like 35+, easy.  But damn she has a great ass.  90% of 20 year olds would envy that ass.  And I'm pretty sure she's more buff than I am.  Shit, my eyes are running up and down her again.  Eye contact, OMFG!  I feel the heat in my cheeks.  Fuck, now I'm going to have to start coming to the gym at a different time to avoid the awkwardness!  But wait...is that a smile?  I figure the best course of action is to get the hell out of this place.

I toss my towel into the bin; it smells so strongly of bleach I think I'm at the pool.  Maybe its the workout, the chemicals, the ass...but I'm feeling lightheaded.  Gotta get out of here quick.  I grab my keys, head for the door...but there she is.  Looking right at me.  Fuck, she's trying to talk to me.  This has got to be some kind of cruel joke.  Maybe she just wants my name so she can get the manager to throw me out for creeping. 

It wasn't perfect, but she was.  We step outside, the crisp fall air makes us both gasp.  The sun is rising, sunlight dancing through the mist before finding the twinkle in her eyes.  I feel myself falling for her before I even know her name.  We talk.  She sees my alumni tshirt; she asks if I went there.  So did she!  We sit around making small talk, and you can feel the attraction arcing between us.  She leans closer, and asks...So how old are you?

I tell her.

I see her surprise.  I see her lean back.  Shit, she thinks I'm way too young for her.  She's obviously not a cougar, if such a beast actually exists.  I'm like seriously its only 10 (or so) years of a gap.  But the moment is gone.  Gotta get it back.  I tell her I am really mature for my age, and that it doesn't even bother me that she is almost as old as my mom.  (Her smile turns into a frown -- SHIT MAN, I'M BLOWING THIS).  I tell her she looks amazing; I am glad to be your ashton.  Besides, I've heard older women get hornier as they age, and that's hot.  ( :| becomes :/, FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK, you just called her old ).  She looks away, glancing at her car -- she's thinking about leaving, bros!  Gotta salvage this quick; how bad can it be?  Come on chemistry, work for me now!!!!~  She obviously didn't mind me looking, so I lean in and ask her if she wants to hang out sometime.

"Hmmm.  It was nice meeting you, Gashy.  I'll see you around," she says, as she turns and walks away. 

Fuck.

If you are looking to add bulk then check out German Volume Training.

It has German in it so you know SerB hates it, so it must be good.

I used it with very good results in the past.

Wat 2 do? 

With the extra money, consider hiring a trainer for 1-2 sessions during the week.  I've done this before, and it's definitely a good way to learn some new exercises and to keep things from getting boring.  If you do 1 session with the trainer, you should still have some money left for important things like internet tonks.

Have I ever told you how much I hate Brienne the Brute?

 

For someone who talks about her oaths so much, she sure was quick to violate House Tarth's oath to support the Lord of House Baratheon and side with the traitor and usurper Renly instead.

All in the name of love..  Sadly for her Renly only had interest in Loras.
I dislike Brienne's zealous stubornness, but still curious how the Jaime thing turns out for her.. I'm a sucker for Jaime Lannister.. 

ps. Garbad.. Did you read the Wool (silo) series by Hugh Howey?

Hey, Garbad, my VK30.01(P) challenge landed you as #1 in NA in DPG for the tank, ha!

 

However, I now doubt WN8 expected values as being #1 barely puts you over 4k WN8.  How can it be that other tanks (including several or yours) can have much higher WN8s with lesser accomplishments relative to other players? 'Tis passing strange.

Because its average scaled to deviation, instead of deviation scaled down to average. If you want the latter xTE works just fine. 2 tools.

This just in:  Wn8 is shit, and no one cares.  Seriously, the damage whoring autists need to get laid.  In three years they will look back at this point in their lives and wonder what in the fuck they were thinking.

I think a  lot of people forget that WN8 is just a tool for measurement not an end unto itself. The numbers in and of themselves are meaningless without context.

Renly is more pimp than I initially thought on my first read.  He really would have been a good king (fuck the fan fiction tv shit).  But reverse Beauty and the Beast isn't happening.

P.S.  Don't think so.  Most recent buks red:

the martian

a war like no other

the hot gates

gawd delusion

atlas shrugged

Plutarchs lives

some islam buk i forget the name

some buk about cats

I can't remember after that.  That probably covers the last month or two.

You're missing out.. It only takes $3.29 on Kindle to become a hermit for the next week (assuming fast reading skills):
http://www.amazon.com/Wool-Omnibus-Edition-Silo-ebook/dp/B0071XO8RA

The only downside of the Kindle app is that i read about 50% of GRRM's ASOIAF while sitting on the toilet ..

My gf gave me her kindle to read at the gym, but I haven't tried it yet.  I kind of hate things like that; I prefer real paper.  I also read 95% of the time at night as I am falling asleep.

Not the real Kindle.. I hate these slowass e-ink things.. I read on my phone. Also it doesn't wake up the missus, as i dont need to have a light on. The Kindle app even lets you tone down the iPhone light further than the regular settings allow.. Perfect for midnight reading marathons.

I was like you and loved paper books and resisted the kindle. Now I can't live without it. It is just so much more convenient. Finished the 2nd book in a series? NP get the 3rd without leaving your bed.

Kindle really does knock out two classic annoyances: holding the book open comfortably, and getting light angled enough to see. I really only got one for newspapers myself, you could get a New York Times for $1 back when I decided to get one. Then the assholes went subscription only so I downgraded to The Washington Post for $0.75.

Game of Thrones: could The Winds of Winter be on the shelves by April?

Also, for sleeping, you want a backlight kindle (such as paperwhite).  Read with lights off, then just let it fall out of your hands when sleep overcomes you and it'll turn itself off a few minutes later.  No more dilemma about turning off light vs reading an extra page.
