Friday hawt chicks & links – The Spartan 300 edition.

I’m on holiday for 2 weeks and off to Italy today for a few days to catch up with my old rafting buddies. Maybe even take a raft down the river, who knows? So there won’t be any posting until around Wednesday next week as I want to have a little and dare I say well deserved break from the internet as well. As such I will not be approving comments from new commenters until I get back as I won’t even be checking for them.

The podcast will return next week but I do want to give a shout-out from my listeners from last week’s episode who responded to my request to subscribe to the old blog so as to push me over the 300 followers mark. Thanks guys, you came through. It is the Spartan 300!

Fewer links than normal this week so to make up for it I have more than one photo of a hawt chick. Go on, take a look – you know you want to.

A final solution to the problem of mosquitoes in the bedroom.

Apparently the title of this article is made up of one of the most offensive terms imaginable. Hard to believe, I know. But our language has been hijacked by an ethnic and religious group, a foreign group at that, and they have decided that certain words of the English language, our language, can no longer be used in any format.

Senator Fraser Anning made his maiden speech in the Australian Senate this week. It contained over 5000 words, many of them about his life and his time living and working in the Queensland countryside. But it was a single sentence that has caused almost the entire parliament to come together in a show of support for their total animosity to the words that he used and to the message that he hoped to send.

The definition of hypergamy.

A comment that I received the other week on my post titled, “Men are attracted to youth and beauty, not careers and power,” from someone named Bob Sykes.

“Hypergamy” means specifically having multiple sexual partners, and it has nothing to do with “marrying up.” Confucius wrote something about the importance of rectifying the names.

I don’t know if this is a deliberate attempt at misdirection or just a complete misunderstanding of the term. So to avoid any confusion it may be helpful to provide an explanation of what this important term actually means.

“‘People are bad. People are evil.’ I don’t buy it.”

The progs are the hardcore side of the lefty coin. The majority of lefties are simple and stupid folk who believe that the world is full of love and laughter and that everyone really wants to be nice to one another. They also tend to hold a narrow worldview that consists of believing that the entire planet is more or less the same as the street in which they grew up, and that as such they will be treated by everyone with warmth and love and respect, with the goodwill overflowing like hippy love bangles at a Beloved Festival.

And so the intrepid adventurers head out, to find the great solace of human companionship. And in the beginning they get lucky and find some of it too. Or perhaps it wasn’t lucky at all; perhaps these random acts of kindness simply served to reinforce their ridiculous and naive beliefs.

The Sunday lifting thread – Your routine.

Since I returned to full time work this year I’ve been struggling with my gym routine. The previous couple of years were easy; I went to the gym on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. That was it, no discussion, no hint of decision in the process. Which is why it went so well because I removed the ability to decide from the equation. This led to success.

I realised this after reading a post from Ace on the subject this week.

The big Failure Point of any workout routine is, of course, simply deciding if you’re going to work out or not. If you’re making that decision each time you might or might not work out, you’re going to fail, you’re going to choose “nah,” 50% of the time or more.

But once you have the habit of just doing it M-W-F or whatever, that decision point is largely gone. You’re not deciding whether or not to do it; you just do it, because that’s what the schedule says.

So eliminating that Failure Point by just getting into a schedule and treating the schedule as more-or-less inviolable removes all those many, many chances of failure.

Once you’re not making the decision if you’ll work out or do IF today, you just do it. The decision gets taken out of the decision loop.

Mostly. Obviously you’re gonna have some really bad days where you just say “Eff it.”
