  1. I get furious at halo because my team is so damn awful always. I will gain a level and then lose two because of awful awful luck with teams
  2. I still need some clarification about your gym routine. To me it looks like you are saying that you do a full body routine 4 times per week. If this is the case you are lifting far too often. For muscle growth you should look to hit each body part no more than 2 times per week. Some people actually grow the best when hitting each group only once per week or once every 5 days. Also you should add a few key exercises. Bench press, squat, and deadlift should be a part of your program for sure. These exercises are slightly more dangerous and so you should be sure to use proper form and not go crazy. I recommend using dumbbells for the bench to help avoid shoulder impingement. Also, are your lifts progressing? A key part to muscle growth is continuing to lif heavier and heavier. As far as nutrition is concerned, be sure that you are getting 1-1.5g of protein per pound of lean body mass. Fat is also important. Fat will help regulate your hormones and lead to muscle gain. The common figure is around .4g of fat per pound of body weight. Eating fat had nothing to do with gaining fat FYI. The rest of your calories should come from carbs. As someone already mentioned, you should be eating a surplus of 500 calories if you'd like to gain a pound per week. If you have any further questions let me know. The first step I would take if I were you is to start counting your calories and reexamine your lifting program
  3. Thats because the type of food you eat doesn't make you gain weight, the quantity of food does. You probably feel like you have a "fast metabolism" because you can eat junk and not get fat, but you are probably just eating a relatively low ammount of it.
  4. I care about my weight, but only because it is a personal hobby of mine. It doesn't really have anything to do with self image, I just like the process of altering my training/nutrition to see gains in muscle and losses of fat. Lets me know that I am in charge of my body.
  5. Yes, this is what I'm saying. Saying that you can't have a strong family if you are in a gay marriage is probably the most offensive thing that you can get away with in today's society. Sure, making a black only water fountain was "worse" in terms of how we view it, but at the time it shared a similar place in social norms: the verge between culturally appropriate and unacceptable. A huge thing that defines the American right-wing viewpoint is the idea that the federal government should not gain too much power, influence, or control over individuals. I don't think that most of the Republican objections are about the bill not being economically advantageous or any such thing. The opposition is to the idea of the bill. It is "un-American". Republicans in America fight to keep our country Capitalist in every way possible. The healthcare reform is too socialist for them.
  6. I think he is doing the modern equivilant. Of course, if anyone took a fire hose and sprayed gay people it would be totally outrageous. But such behavior was not seen as blatantly socially unacceptable in the days you mention. Today, of course, it is not blatantly socially unacceptable to call gay families inherently weak families, because we are still unfortunately fighting for gay rights. But I think that 50-60 years down the road from now (just like when we look back at black rights) the current oppression towards gays will seem just as inconsiderate and bigoted as racism towards blacks now seems. It is all a matter of framing. He is pushing his descrimination to the highest tolerable level in today's society. He might not be making straight-only water fountains, but he's doing the modern-day equivilant. And again, it wasn't an argument or an analogy. It was me vocalizing how ridiculous I feel this man is. I didn't lay down a dissertation that presented a series of logical arguments that relied on gay-bashing being identical to slavery. There was no argument. I just think the man is a fool and wanted to vocalize this in an overt way.
  7. Understood. But your embellishment was completely out of line. Lately our public discourse has become increasingly hostile, with the right calling the left socialists, communists, and anti-American and the left calling the right racist and anti-Civil Rights Act while both adhere to Godwin's Law. By exaggerating your feelings to equate the opposition of gay rights to the opposition of civil rights for blacks you're only contributing to that hostile discourse. We both know that this is a ridiculous comparison and contributes nothing to the point you were trying to make, that Santorum is a bigot for being anti-gay rights, as evidenced by the last like 7 posts being completely unrelated. He said that strong families aren't gay families. You seriously think this isn't outrageous? It angers me greatly...
  8. Additionally, I haven't made one comment about whether or not gay marriage should be legal. My objection was your analogy. In fact, I acknowledged there's an argument for gay rights in the post you quoted. However, if you want to play these straw man games: gays have the same rights as anyone else. Gay males have just as much a right to marry a female as straight males do and straight males and gay males alike can not marry other males. I feel indecent just typing that out, but it's the same fallacy you're making. Jesus christ, it's not like I said "Denying gay marriage is exactly like slavery, and slavery was abolished, so therefore gay marriage should not be denied as I have undeniabley proven" I was just saying that I see all cases of descrimination based on race, sex, or sexual preference as being unacceptable. Far be it from me to embellish on my language to exaggerate my feelings.
  9. Probably because theres no modern day equivilent for all of the stuff that happened 60 years ago, because people are now concerned with being politically correct. I mean, they don't hang signs outside marriage liscense offices that say "No gays allowed". But basically, they may aswell. Think about it. Would it make sense to stop Mexicans from getting married? So why can we just stop gays from getting married? It is just another group of people.
  10. Love when people compare gay marriage to slavery. Gives me a good laugh every time. I'm comparing the opression of blacks to the opression of gays. Slavery too much? Fine, then how bout I compare it to telling the black people to ride in the back of the bus? Is that civil opression close enough for you? Love when people say "Love when..." sarcastically because they can't address the actual issue.
  11. What do you mean "steady rhythm"? You mean you are trying to clap in even intervals? You don't need to do that. Just do the push ups and clap. The point of the exercise isn't to keep a beat to a song. It's to work your muscles.
  12. That is Buddhism not Nihilism. A Nihilist is closer to an athiest then a Buddhist. Buddhists are atheists... Yes but it really comes down to how they live their life, a Buddhist would be dispassionate like a Jedi or something while an Atheist might still desire a permanent universe, system of government, etc. I guess the main difference between the two is a Buddhist understands there is nothing and an atheist may say there isnt eternal life but may say something still is eternal. A Nihilist may have a similar belief but how they live is closer to an atheist then a Buddhist An atheist is a person who does not believe in a god or gods. Other than that, an atheist can think/believe/talk about anything. An atheist can be a communist, democrat, republican, anarchist, whatever. The only thing that atheism is is a disbelief of god. Talking about "atheists' desires" for a permanent universe or government system is totally silly.
  13. I just can't believe some of the crap that comes out of Santorum's mouth. If you can publicly be a bigot towards gay people, why not just get it over with and say that you're in support of reinstating slavery? The land of the free...the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Oh wait, except if your idea of happiness involves starting a family with another man. What a jackass.

    Actually, Buddhism is accepting of other religions and atheism. I understand that this is one specific religion, but it just goes to show that a religion doesn't have to be something where you become crazy obsessive about what other people believe and waste your life trying to make people feel like they deserve eternal punishment just because they don't think that a bearded man rose from the dead 2000 years ago.
  15. Nobody has mentioned eating? When I feel unhappy I fry myself up 3-4 eggs, some homefries with bacon, and some heavily buttered toast. Wash it down with a cup of coffee. My favorite meal <3
