Pleasant news.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

Also, the rising stars are the Greens, especially in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

Also, a surprising number of voters showed up to the polls, all across the EU. Which is a good sign.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:05 PM)

Soooo. Another election day is over. Less stressful than the last one, at least.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2019 - 05:09 PM)

Oooookay, Babylon Berlin. That's gotta be Plot Convenient News Urgent Edition or something.

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

Just saying I'm 149.6lbs so just gotta lose 3lbs to get back to what I was earlier this week.

Also, there's intermittent fasting timing apps! I should try it.

One arm push ups! Nice! With baby!
I could do like... three a few years ago, haha

Baby? More like almost 8 year old! But the one handed ones were without her, it was regular pushups where I added her weight.

 

As far as weight is concerned, just wanted to encourage you. I hit a new low of 213.65 earlier this week, but added 2 pounds between Thursday and Friday's dinners (my in laws gave us some money so we could have a night out, and I enjoyed every bite of it!). I understand exactly what you feel, since I'm now 2 more pounds further from my 185 goal weight, but I think fluctuations of 2-3 pounds in a given week are healthy. I get it though...once I'm at 185, I'll freak out the first time I hit 190 again.

 

Yesterday, was core. Today, during a trip to Aldi I ran across a 12 pound vest for only $8.99. I wore it while doing an indoor run tonight. Believe it or not, I hit a new pace for the new year: 9:30 per mile. It was challenging, and I expect to be up tomorrow with water retention even more (since my muscles will be in repair overdrive now), but it was worth it. Hoping this makes me faster.

 

Miles: 136.44 + 2.2 = 138.64
Uppers: 8319
Lowers: 3390
Core: 2497 + 260 = 2757

Oh yeah, she did ask you what happens if she got on your back, hehe.

I was lying in bed last night, being tempted to get up and eat a chocolate wafer crunch bar but fell asleep instead. It was too cold to leave the comfy bed, haha

Today, I hit a new weight low since at least 2010, maybe 2009. 212.53! I was so positive I would be up today, since my wife made an amazing potato soup last night and I went back twice for another serving. So I was super surprised to be down, I even checked it again just to be sure.

 

Today, I did a full body workout. Low reps, since I walked/stretched a lot in between. But something different. I wore the 12 pound weight vest the entire time, and I could tell it midway through too.

 

Miles: 54.79
Uppers: 9044 + 20 = 9064
Lowers: 3984 + 21 = 4005
Core: 2820 + 11 = 2841

 

I also did 5 burpees. I don't know where to put them, since they work the entire body in 1 rep. Thoughts?

Burpees have push up for 'upper' and squats for 'lower'. Does it do 'core'? Cuz, I swear, I will do burpees to add to our list if core is included.

"Getting up in the morning" is getting to be workout enough. 

 

I don't know what it is, but since last summer something's been causing the family cat to just freak out at night when everyone's trying to sleep. About the only thing that'll settle him down is if I get him and hold him like an infant while I'm seated. I can be doing this for as much as four hours straight, and that stresses my spine. 

 

I've found that if I sit in the padded chair in the family office after I wake up and recline it a bit, it helps my back significantly. Problem is, that same cat takes the sound of me sitting in the chair as some sort of invitation to play. He wants me to get up and play with him, with "play" being "chase him around the house. 

 

If I don't chase him, he'll rip something up in protest. The relatives I live with spoiled him to the extent that he's used to getting what he wants, and he gets destructive when that doesn't happen. 

 

The up and down as I get up to try and stop him from destroying things, sit back down, and then have to get up again is stressing things that much more. After about half an hour of this, I'm in enough pain that I have trouble walking. 

 

This usually ends with me having to spend the next hour in that chair dealing with things unless I want some Advil.

I reached 143.8lbs! Just 4 more lbs and I'll be at my goal! Then I'll start eating tuna for my protein and try to build muscle. Maybe pics when I'm at 140lbs.

The diet was just really me living alone and controlling my food. Yeeeeah, kinda not eating full meals sometimes.

I know it's bad, yikes. But I'll regulate once I'm at my target weight of 140lbs.

Between the cold my nephew gave me, and the weather spiking above zero © to cause thaws, I've been alternating between down and badly over exerting myself. There's been awful ice this year, and three times in the last two weeks I've had to go clear the shit out which is god awful back breaking work. Two hours of it on friday wound up not only making my back feel like it was broken, but managed to give me a migraine on top of it.

 

But still: felt well enough to take my run today. So, back into the swing of things!
