    Working Out

    [color=deeppink]I don't feel anything unless I go at least a minute.[/color]   [color=deeppink]Unfortunately, if I go for more than 30 seconds I start coughing up stomach acid. [/color]

    Working Out

      [color=deeppink]So my advice is to not do that. You start to get some pretty sever diminishing returns after about an hour of strength training. If you want to work out for 4 hours that's fine I guess, but you're better off with doing an hour of weightlifting and then three hours of some kind of cardio. As long as you're careful not to overdue it and don't think you'll get burnt out.[/color]   [color=deeppink]And maybe look into compound exercises. There's no reason just starting out that you should be doing an entire workout that just focuses on one part of the body, when there are so many that work a bunch of muscle groups at once. Here's the beginner stuff I do that I got from Nerd Fitness, which is all bodyweight stuff. Good to start out that way, and when you move up to weights just start with the bar only because it's more important that master proper form.[/color]   [color=deeppink]10 Pushups 15 Bodyweight Squats 10 Inverted rows  (this one you might need to work up to with a weighted exercise, one arm dumbell rows). 20 Bodyweight Lunges 15 seconds of planking.[/color]   [color=deeppink]Go from top to bottom, then do that 2 more times. Add an ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY warm up that is not based on static stretching and then a cool down that should be based on static stretching or yoga.[/color]   [color=deeppink]That takes between 45 minutes and an hour depending on if you break between sets or just kinda curl up into a whimpering fat ball like I do.  And you're basically working out nearly every muscle in your body with this routine. Arms, back, legs, abs, butt. Way more efficient.[/color]

    TV Marble Hornets

    [center][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wmhfn3mgWUI[/media][/center] [color=deeppink] Marble Hornets is a web series about [url="http://www.mythicalcreaturesguide.com/page/Slender+Man"]Slender Man[/url], and it scares the ever-loving **** out of me. In a lot of ways, the its like The Blair Witch Project: it's presented an amateur film project where the subjects become haunted by an unearthly force. The scares stem not from cheap "Boo!" moments, but from the atmosphere, which is deliberate and moody. There are a few "Boo!" moments, but because of the general aura of terror and the masterful underplaying of them, they feel more real and terrifying. I don't really scare easily when it comes to fiction, but this series seems to hit all the right buttons. I actually think it's better than The Blair Witch Project, at least when terror is concerned; the evil force in Blair Witch is [i]too[/i] intangible, negating the terror that is associated with an unknown entity. Slenderman, however, makes his presence [i]explicitly[/i] known. The mystery is still there, but there is a tangible focus for it. Its the best of both worlds. Anyway, watch this and the companion piece [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmqDPBu1UaM"]ToTheArk[/url]. There's a viewing order [url="http://marblehornets.wikidot.com/the-entries"]here[/url].[/color]

    Gaming PSN Hacked

    http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/04/26/update-on-playstation-network-and-qriocity/ [color=deeppink]So somebody stole a bunch of vital information off of PSN. If you have a PS3, I imagine that this is something you'd like to be aware of.[/color]

    Gaming Xbox 360 advice

    [quote name='Shinmaru' timestamp='1304460044' post='707081'] [b]Mass Effect 2[/b] (maybe the first, too, but I heard it plays similarly to [b]Knights of the Old Republic[/b], which honestly bored the hell out of me), [/quote] [color=deeppink]This depends on what you mean. It's completely different from KOTOR, gameplay-wise. It's not based on d20 tabletop rules and the combat isn't automatic. It's a third-person shooter with some rpg elements, and it's far more focused on action than the passive KOTOR system. It is, however, extremely similar to KOTOR in terms of how the game progresses. You start on this one planet, then you have to travel to 4 other planets, then the final planet. It's also superficially similar in terms of story, and there's still a healthy amount of conversation (although now it's highly skippable in most cases). I definitely recommend Bioshock. Not really for the gameplay (it's a mediocre to good game based on that), but the presentation is wonderful. THe Left 4 Dead games are also fun (if you have enough people who want to play), Batman: Arkham Asylum is divine, Orange Box is a damn must-have, Resident Evil 5 is enjoyable (again, only with somebody else). If you're into Sims-type stuff, Viva Pinata is awesome. That's all I got for now.[/color]

    A Difference

    [quote name='Allamorph' timestamp='1300494860' post='705788'] [FONT=Calibri]I am going to the next town over on Monday afternoon to finalise my enlistment with the Navy. [/FONT] [color=deeppink][/quote] Oh wow. Best of luck man. To answer the questions of the topic.... Whether or not I notice a life-changing event will depend on how much quickly it will effect me. For example, if I am witnissing the death of a loved one, I'm going to pretty immidiately see it for what it is. However, if I meet a [i]future[/i] loved one... that's a bit more gradual and I wouldn't know it immidiately. Would I pursue it? If it is within my interests to do so, yes. But I tend to be pretty passive; unless it's something I absolutely must do, I sort of just let change happen. I definitely would be able to accept a change in the sense that I would acknowledge that it is happening. That is, I can rationally accept it, but I may not be able to emotionally accept it. There are certain things in my life that I long ago accepted will never change and certain things that I know have to change soon, but by no means am I happy about them. [/color]

    Celebrity Harem 4

    [color=deeppink]Wherein we post pictures of the celebrities we shamelessly ogle. [b][center][img]http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/9080/teganandsaralovestandin.jpg[/img] Despite reminding me a little too much of the ghost twins from [i]The Shining[/i], I'm just absolutely enthralled by these girls. I think it's the hair. [img]http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/6687/civkristenbell.jpg[/img] I love a warm smile, and they do [i]not[/i] come warmer than on Veronica Mars*. [img]http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/8992/imagescalqh66c.jpg[/img] While Ellie Kemper is absolutely adorable, it's Mindy Kaling that's the reason I'm posting that pic. [img]http://img683.imageshack.us/img683/9903/kristenschaalmini.jpg[/img] The quickest way to activate my libido is to be funny. It doesn't hurt that this picture also hits all the right buttons for me. [img]http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/6546/jennplain.jpg[/img] Okay, here's where I stretch the definition of "celebrity" until it snaps like dry rubber band. This is Jennifer Zhang, the creative force behind [url="http://www.streetfighterhigh.com/"]Street Fight High[/url] and the actress who plays whoever the hell wears those parachute pants. She has the best smirk I have ever seen. Also, it's because of her that I realized that I have a thing for big noses. [img]http://img696.imageshack.us/img696/7782/algleamichele2.jpg[/img] Big noses. Yeah. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mf7cQfhJSA[/media] So Molly Lewis is phenomenal. The part in the video where she's laying face down banging her hands on the table is what really made me want her; it's just the right combination of sardonic and exasperated that just makes me [i]melt.[/i] [img]http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/3857/allisonscagliotti254773.jpg[/img] Okay, so this one might be because of wish fulfillment. I'm attracted to her mainly because of her role as Claudia on [i]Warehouse 13[/i] (again: I likes 'em sardonic), and Claudia had a short-lived romance with Fargo from [i]Eureka[/i], who is basically me, so... [img]http://img263.imageshack.us/img263/3351/tumblrlag81lwcnj1qzbtcu.jpg[/img] AAAAAAAH. I don't think I want anyone as hard as I want her. She's the only person I regularly laugh at at College Humor (and the only reason I go there ever). She can somehow make me laugh when she's doing nothing but [url="http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1948107"]screeching[/url], which is saying something because I [i]loathe[/i] that ****.[/center] [/b] So there's my babies.

Throughout that attack he's constantly shouting about hyper combos. EDIT: Although, really, he's still breaking the fourth wall by grabbing the HUD bars. [/color]

    Pet Peeves

    [color=deeppink]I hate that nobody has any hallway etiquette. If there is only enough room for 3, maybe 4 people shoulder to shoulder, [i]don't stand 5 deep while waiting for class[/i]. It's much better for traffic when people going both directions don't have to funnel through the same foot-long opening. Don't walk shoulder-to-shoulder in groups of 4 and expect me to make room for you when my elbow is already scraping the wall. Don't just [i]stop[/i] in front of me. I will cut you. [i]Please[/i] don't funnel through the most inconvenient door for the rest of us. And [i]please[/i] don't use both doors for the same damn direction, making it so NO ONE ******* ELSE can get through. Anything other than that is minor but still annoys me. I wish people would treat hallways like roads and keep to the damn right. I've seen people run into each other simply because they both have to cut that corner as close as possible.[/color]

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    [color=deeppink]Just finished [i]demolishing[/i] Red Dead Redemption. Enjoyable game, but it suffers from the same flaw that keeps me from loving GTA: [i]it's not very fun to play.[/i] Sure, it's alright, and I think it actually did a better job of keeping me engrossed in the action than GTA, but it's still only mediocre. I've been tooling around with some older games, as is my way. I'm about halfway through Mirror's Edge (wtf how did this game happen?), I've picked up Beautiful Katamari again, and I'm also playing Star Trek: Legacy, Beatles Rock Band, Rez, Every Extend Extra, Lumines.... lot's of old games I'm only now getting around to playing. And Marvel vs Capcom 3. Holy god damn that game is complicated. I think I've got the advanced-basics down, but there's still so much more I could know and I doubt I ever will.[/color]

    [color=deeppink]Youtube notifying me of old content from my subscriptions. I know the muppets channel was updated a month ago, I saw it then. Stop telling me.
