    Organic food

    I spend a lot of money on organic food. Been wondering lately if it's worth it. As with almost everything about health, some sources say yes, some say no. I follow PD Mangan and his Rogue Health and Fitness blog (https://roguehealthandfitness.com/blog/) and he recently sent out an email that...

    Crazy tinfoil hat things to do with your Trump bucks that just might work

    I've come to the disturbing realization that most people in the US simply don't know how many billions there are in a trillion. Almost no one I talk to is particularly worried that the US government just conjured up trillions of dollars out of thin air to address the current virus pandemic...

    The getting your wife to work out and eat right thread

    In my experience for every one real fitness girl out there, there are about five guys who lift, eat right, and take their fitness and appearance seriously. While both sexes tend to let themselves go after marriage, women seem to be even worse about this than men. I’d like to start a thread...

    Medical bills and haggling them down

    This one is for the other US members of the forum. A few weeks ago on a thread I can't recall, someone mentioned the possibility of haggling a medical bill down, essentially offering them a fraction of the total balance up front, which they'll supposedly often take since so many people just...

    Is there one true Christian church?

    I've always been interested in theology and I consider myself Christian, so I'm among those who've applauded Roosh's conversion and haven't minded the forum's change in direction. I came to consider myself Christian because of what I feel when I read the Bible. I consider that feeling to be...

    Asking Catholic priests to stop swearing around my kids

    My wife is devout Catholic. I am just sort of generally Christian and wasn't even attending a church or living an especially Christian lifestyle when we met, so when we decided to get married I was down with raising the kids Catholic and attending her church even though I have no intention of...

    Stop 401k contributions or sell off gold (or "is the collapse coming?")

    This question is mainly for my fellow American shitlords. Let's say you bought a car and it turns out after a few months that you stretched yourself a bit thin financially and could use a few hunderd bucks extra some months to make the payments. You contribute a few hundred to your 401k each...

    Making my own caffeinated creatine-free preworkout

    I could have sworn I once saw a thread on the forum about making your own preworkout but I can't find it now. Anyway, I've been using the stuff in the link below for a few years. I like how it tastes and look forward to sipping it in the morning before lifting. Since it has creatine and I...

    Citizens of European microstates behaving badly abroad

    Here's a random thing I was thinking about this morning: what happens if a citizen of, say, San Marino goes to somewhere like Thailand and gets himself arrested for drugs, insulting the king, or whatever? Does the Italian embassy in Thailand assist him? With a population of less than 35k, San...

    How much offense do British people intend when they call Americans "Yanks"?

    It seems mildly insulting and dismissive when Brits call us "Yanks," as they seem to do more often than not. Maybe I'm wrong though, maybe they mean no offense. I've never been to the UK so I haven't been around a lot of British people. I did work for a UK-based company in the US once, and you...

    I'm Skeptical about Big Butts and I Cannot Lie

    I’m a white guy in my late forties. A white friend of mine who is about my age and a veteran of game once remarked that if you’d told him when he was in high school that in the future women would aspire to having a big ass, he’d never have believed you. Of course as Roosh once said one man’s...

    Is Donald Trump a real American?

    Stick with me on this one. I read Vox Day's blog Vox Popoli (http://voxday.blogspot.com/) daily and occasionally comment. Been doing so for a little over a year. He's a fascinating writer and one of his most interesting ideas is that you have to be of at least 50% English ancestry to be a real...

    Acid reflux flavored BCAA

    I decided to try a Branched-Chain Amino Acid supplement. I lift five or six times a week and do 16/8 intermittent fasting every day, and one of the many fitness gurus I follow on YouTube recommended BCAA supplementation to facilitate muscle growth while fasting. I went with this BCAA because I...

    Long, hard, or both?

    Over the last few years I've seen a trend in fitness and weight training toward shorter, more intense workouts. For example, a year or two ago I worked with a guy in his forties with a massive, bodybuilder-like build who claimed his average gym session lasted about 25 minutes. Here are two...

    We wuz kangs is real

    I’m white. For the better part of the last year, I’ve been working with mostly black guys. Often I’m the only white guy in the office. It’s fine, I get along with them well. One manager has a bit of an anti-white vibe sometimes, but no serious problems yet. The power was out the other day, so...

    EZ bar upright rows

    Hope this hasn't been asked before (a quick search didn't turn up anything). I keep seeing references to upright rows being a dangerous exercise. However, I did a lot of them when doing Beachbody's Body Beast program and they didn't seem to cause problems. I do have a bit of a problem with...

    Zuzka Light: Any chance she's natural?

    Please see the link below. Right around 1:30 is essentially perfection as far as the female body is concerned for me. Is there any chance she's natural? Not the boobs, of course, I mean everything else. Zuzka has to be into her 30s by now and as much as I want to believe this is natural, I don't...

    Combining Insanity, weight training, and intermittent fasting

    I'm in my late 40s. I've been into fitness for about a decade, mostly weight training and various Beachbody programs like the P90X and the Insanity series. I'm tall and lean, a bit of a hard gainer, but I managed to put on some decent muscle in recent years by lifting hard and forcing myself to...

    Elbow pain, pull-ups, and getting old

    I'm in my late 40s. Ever since really getting into fitness and getting into good shape back in my late 30s, I've been pretty good at pull-ups. Not world class, but incorporating several sets of 10 to 12 pull-ups into my workouts was no problem, and I could max out at 16 to 18. Never got to the...

    Great novels by women

    I was reading the comments on the article about the new, all-female Ghostbusters movie over at ROK, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein got mentioned several times. This got me thinking about women and literature, and I realized that Frankenstein is one of the only truly great novels I've read that...
