Women Are Always Right

You know that old saying about "if I got a dime every time somebody ___________"? Well, I used to think if I got a small commission every time a woman expressed her fear of lifting weights simply because she thought it would make her look more man-like, I'd have enough to pay off the U.S. … Continue reading Women Are Always Right

CPR/AED Renewal Notes (PIC NSFW)

I finally renewed my expired CPR/AED certification. Even though this is roughly my 15th-ish time or so sitting through the cheesy videos and repetitive demonstrations of my ability (to pretend) to remove a foreign object from Rescue Anne's mouth, I actually learned some new things... sort of. 1) The American Red Cross Adult CPR/AED cert … Continue reading CPR/AED Renewal Notes (PIC NSFW)

Riding Ted Williams’ Coattails

Certainly by now, you've heard all about Ted Williams fall and rise (and fall?) from glory. Not being one to pass up a good opportunity for shameless self-promotion, I figured if the Today Show, the Cleveland Cavaliers and umpteen other businesses are willing to ride Mr. Williams' camouflaged coat-tails into viral-video stardom, then who the … Continue reading Riding Ted Williams’ Coattails

Hair Removal: Where Does It End?

I used to give one of my ol' buddies a hard time when his mom would Nair his back in high school. Perhaps it's what they call poetic justice, but I've grown progressively hirstute over the years. Since finally breaking down and going to the table for my first back waxing experience last year, I've … Continue reading Hair Removal: Where Does It End?

Stuff Fat People Like

Finding inspiration at the politically-incorrect (but oh, so funny) blog, StuffWhitePeopleLike, I'm gonna go out on a socially insensitive limb and take a dig at the stereotypical "gravitationally significant" population of America (and maybe I can finally get my own book deal w/a $300k advance, too). ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** STUFF FAT PEOPLE LIKE … Continue reading Stuff Fat People Like

Back Waxing and the Modern Neanderthal

Boron = Moron? It started back when I was about 17. Boron was being touted as the 'new miracle supplement' - it was said to 'increase testosterone levels'. I've already been weight training for 5 years and figured "what the hell?" It's about time I try something a little stronger than a multi-vitamin. While I … Continue reading Back Waxing and the Modern Neanderthal

My Vote Goes To The Candidate Who…

Ok, I'm not really gonna make this a political post.  In the interest of keeping this a health/fitness/training themed blog, how 'bout we file this one under "personal hygiene" If you're planning on voting for McCain or Obama only because you believe a president should be capable of standing up while they take a leak, … Continue reading My Vote Goes To The Candidate Who…

Political Correctness Lessons for Skinny People

Being the always considerate, caring, warm-hearted (and only occasionally sarcastic) person that I am, I figured it would be helpful to you, my dear, insensitive readers - if I provided a brief lesson on ways to call someone a "lard-ass" without the risk of overstepping bounds of common decency. Lesson one: Use specific anatomical/physiological terms instead of offensive slang … Continue reading Political Correctness Lessons for Skinny People
