I squatted 200kg (440#) on a whim on Saturday. I took a week off after that meet. I was going to just do something light, but I didn't feel like doing more than a couple reps per set, and then decided that if I was going to just do singles, might as well go for a heavy single, and then might as well hit that milestone. It's not terribly impressive, but it's a good mark to hit.
I am reading The Two Towers right now. Good stuff.
I agree with Ebert about video games and art.
I'm joining Team Gorilla.
I read an article about homeopathy off of aldaily. Not remarkable enough to link to, but interesting enough to discuss. I really hope that silly nonsense disappears. I'm all in favor of investigating "traditional" or "non-western" or whatever medicines (or, rather, letting other people investigate them), but homeopathy is just stupid and wrong. It can be rejected almost a priori. One need not make any argument against it. Acupuncture, naturopathy, herbalism, Zone diets, whatever, yeah, go ahead. Homeopathy is for tools. The unfortunate part, however, is that a lot of insurers in Europe cover homeopathic remedies and use their coverage as a selling point. This is bad. Further, people think that, because their insurance covers it, it must be effective. Very bad.
What my wife calls "putting things away", I call "hiding my useful things in secret places where they will never ever be found again" or just "messing with my stuff". I suppose there must be some middle ground somewhere. We will never find it, though. I will never surrender! Never forget! Word is bond!
Hmm, cheap used books about Mornington Crescent available. Perhaps worth spending the $4 on shipping and $0.02 for the book. Just for kicks.
