I'm slowing down on Lost in the Cosmos so Teh Wife can catch up and we can discuss. I'm at the chapter on semiotics.
I'm probably in the market for a cheap printer scanner combo. I don't have to print much - a couple pages per week, tops. Scans aren't high volume or high quality, but relatively frequent. So it's not like we need something that great for either. The conclusion: we could probably survive on one of those cheap and crappy all-in-one printers.
Definitively the case: I am going to have to change the way I train squats because of my elbow. After the layoff, it was fine for, like, two workouts, started to hurt the third, and yesterday it just sucked: painful after the last warmup at 315 and bad enough on the first workset at 330 that I cut it out after that set. A pity, because it was rocketing up. So I'm going to experiment. High bar squats are less stressful on the shoulders, perhaps it is on the elbows, too. Safety bar squats alter the movement a bit, but have no stress on the elbows. Front squats are more Oly-specific, which is one of my interests, but not right now with a powerlifting meet coming up. I think I will do front squats and safety bar squats in the next two training sessions to give my elbow time to recover and then see whether high bar squats hurt or not. It's not really the elbow that hurts, per se, it's the arm right where people break their humerus when arm wrestling incorrectly. This indicates to me that I have some sort of grip problem that's putting some torque on my arm and I'm going to have to sort that out sometime, but not right now. The annoying part is that I'll have to experiment for a little bit to figure out what the right load is. Which is fine, except that I have a meet in 6 weeks and one of those weeks will have no training. I hoped to make more progress. Oh well. Whatevs.
We do proofs sometimes in the homework for this stats class. It's awesome. It's been a little while since I've done proofs. I still, of course, blitz through them. Speaking of which: wooo I got 95 on my last homework and 100 on my last quiz.
Sigh: I just had to say this on a discussion forum somewhere:
No, there are idiots who will neither do the groundwork nor acquire the basic framework to understand anything (you) and people who get annoyed by persistent refusals to learn by any method other than spoonfeeding (everybody else).What can I say? It's not my job to do somebody's homework, but I gave pretty decent directions and guidance on how to find the answer, and if he knew anything about anything, it would seem pretty clear. Oh well. It's just the internet.
