Been reading about Alcubierre drives. They will never happen. We're stuck on Earth, or at least stuck in the solar system.
Kurtz writes about how Lucas betrayed Star Wars: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/herocomplex/2010/08/star-wars-was-born-a-long-time-ago-but-not-all-that-far-far-away-in-1972-filmmakers-george-lucas-and-gary-kurtz-wer.html I read an article on the same site with the Tolkien link that discussed how Empire Strikes Back is not "Star Wars II", but rather a completely new work within the universe created by Star Wars. In contrast to Godfather II being really and truly Godfather II. You could splice the two together into one long film and not notice, but with Star Wars and Empire, it's a reimagining of the universe. Something I did not know: Lucas was originally set to do Apocalypse Now, but Coppola then decided to do it himself.
Legality of cat eating: http://www.slate.com/id/2263794/ Frankly, I don't see anything separating a cow from a cat from a horse, so if it's acceptable to eat a cow, it should be acceptable to eat a cat or a horse.
After baseball game, on train, talked with guy about training. I had lent him a copy of Practical Programming for Strength Training, he liked it and bought the second edition for himself. He's still training in a bro-style split, but he's thinking of switching to more rational stuff. His presses aren't far behind me, but his squat is much lower. He has the right sort of build to be a decent powerlifter, actually, probably more bench-oriented than any other lift. Stocky and dwarfish. I'll be pissed if he starts benching more than me, though. But my arms are so long and his are so stocky. I'll always squat more, though, because I have a higher pain tolerance. Big squats are just bloody uncomfortable, and I'm willing to put a bar on my back at least three times per week.
I like my wife. She is pretty.
