I have seen a lot of .....for lack of a better word........ "Bad-ass-ness" recently. Now I am fairly open minded and realize that locations, occupations, experiences, physical ability, etc all…Continue

"I read that and thought it was a cool as hell idea for a tattoo.
I understand the complications of hyponatremia, but really feel it is not an issue with intermittent fasting. I have read several of Doc. Berardi's articles on this and feel it is…"
"Thanks. I dabble in medicine occasionally. I have been a paramedic and have run clinics in remote/austere locations for roughly the last 10 years. I will look into this scrabble thing you mentioned. It sounds fun."
"It really should not cause dehydration. Doc Berardi never says to limit fluid intake. If taken to the extreme (REALLY extreme) it could potentially cause "water intoxication" when you drink so much that you piss out all of your…"
"No holding out, my life is pretty tame, but the timing was interesting, as that night I would be telling an assembled crowd (one of the largest in recent memory) that their stewardship of the place was lacking.
That scared me more than any silly…"
"Had a taste of your quote last summer; on vacation we were heading to our beloved swimming hole in the woods. I was the only male (as usual) leading a bunch of ladies of varying ages, plus my wife and her friend bringing up the rear. Halfway there I…"

God told Moses to send men to spy out the land of Canaan. He told him to send a man from each tribe. Twelve men were sent. They were to find out about the land and the people in the land. Moses said to find out if the people were strong or weak. Did they live in cities or in camps? He wanted to know what the fruit of the land was like, and if they had forests or not. He asked them to bring back some of the fruit that was ripe.
"Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled"
THE PILGRIMS :
We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go
Always a little further: it may be
Beyond the last blue mountain barred with snow,
Across that angry or that glimmering sea,
White on a throne or guarded in a cave
There lives a prophet who can understand
Why men were born: but surely we are brave,
Who make the Golden Journey to Samarkand.
"We sleep safe in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm." ---George Orwell on a BBC broadcast, April 4, 1942
"When the highest and strongest drives, breaking passionately out, carry the individual far above and beyond the average and lowlands of the herd conscience, the self-confidence of the community goes to pieces, its faith in itself, its spine as it were, is broken: consequently it is precisely these drives that are most branded and calumniated. Lofty spiritual independence, the will to stand alone, great intelligence even, are felt to be dangerous; everything that raises the individual above the herd and makes his neighbour quail is henceforth called evil."
Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, 1886, 201
"Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon and he made his web gear. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 17:00, he is home. He knows only The Cause. Still want to quit?"
"Sounds like it's not properly vented. The vent could be clear, but if it's not drawing air when the pipe attempts to drain, it's no good. If this sink was an afterthought to the original plumbing, that could well be the case. Plumbing…"
"I am a distance runner. I've been running for about 4 years now since I stopped playing sports, so I am very lean. The reason I starting lifting is because I'm really lanky, and wanted to get some bulk. The issue is that…"
