Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Taking a break is sometimes the best thing you can do.

So I found that I missed a day on my spreadsheet in terms of calories, weight lifted and water drank plus I missed a zero (I put in 1300 instead of 13000 pounds lifted - huge difference!).

1/16: Upper body with my son. 200 reps + .18 walk after
Today: Lower body, 338 reps + .41 walk after
Total pounds lifted to date: 84,645
Move calories burned: 11,437
Water drank: 1,217 ounces

Miles: 61.92 + .18 + .41 = 62.51
Uppers: 2470 + 200 = 2670
Lowers: 868 + 338 = 1206
Core: 891

Aaand it turns out the runthru I did was just half the course. We had to do it twice. I wasn't prepared. I ended up finishing 5th or 4th. The guy who kept beating me for first place in the last two runs placed 3rd. Meaning two or three new competitors entered the age category who are serious, guh.

Dang it! But just means I have train harder for next year!

The pretty ok part of the race was the guy in front of me going jog, walk, jog, walk while I was doing a steady jog. There was a guy behind me who was doing a jog, walk, jog, walk too, this time, keeping pace with me.

About three blocks from the finish line, the guy behind me finally tries to pass me. I was like 'nooooo way!' and I ran in pace until I passed him and the guy in front on me. Two blocks away from the finish, I did a semi sprint (cuz it was a looong block). Didn't see the former guy in front but former guy behind me was suddenly behind me near the last block. A bit scary but I used the last of my wind to go full on and reach the finish line first.

I was still 5th (or 4th place, since the folks only kept track of the first three placers) but it was cool.

Man, is the strategy for winning short fun runs going to be 'stay in front or stay with one of two of the leaders in front, then just surge past on the final leg? '

Broke my back and froze my ass off shoveling snow. And I took my run this afternoon. Felt pretty good.

 

Edit: Okay, so first day back after illness and I nearly give myself an anxiety attack. I suddenly figured that 36 minutes for 3.5 miles is wrong cause I can WALK 4.5 kilometers in about 40 minutes. And I almost went nuts trying to find the damn manual to double check.

 

Yeah, it's in miles. But still, that sucked. Why is my brain this hugging broken?

I have finally used my cross country skis. It is hard, and way different than downhill skis. I went through the park and down a little hill into a giant snowdrift, and was trapped for a few minutes. Powder is not my friend.

No, I've always pulled a 10 minute mile. I'm trying to build my endurance, so slower but no stopping at all. I don't want to run a marathon, I just don't want to jiggle when I brush my teeth. But suddenly the numbers didn't add up for me, and I couldn't remember what the manual said about the display.

First post of the year.  Had my flight at work doing PT after work. Some of it has been pretty easy, others have been harder.  For one, 6 rounds, run 400m, 20 reps of an exercise. (pushups, jumping jacks, squats, etc) 

 

Wife is in the hospital now getting induced so my second child, a girl, will be here by tomorrow hopefully.  No sleep tonight for me.

Stomach bug: check.

Toss and turned all night: check.

Cramped up all night: check.

Do I feel like working out today? Nope. Is it possible my 451 day streak will come to an end today?

At least I didnt break another streak: I havent puked since before my wife and I got married in 05. Thought last night might be the first but I held strong.

Alright, so I went outside at about 8.30 this morning, and wound up shoveling a massive lump of snow. We got twice what they said we would yesterday, followed by ice pellets, freezing rain and then regular rain, which is still happening. Just clearing the front of the driveway took an hour.

 

3/4's of the way through that, my mother calls: the church she works at is flooding. The company that has the contract for clearing the snow is doing a piss poor job (AGAIN!) so I go and spend two hours cutting a trench through half inch ice that's thirty feet long. THEN I get to clean out the room that was flooding, but it's not got any insulation OR heating, so I'm INSIDE shoveling wet snow.

 

Long story short: I got a nice whole body work out today, and hug the weather.
