Re: What are your favorite places you visited in the world?

Istanbul is my favorite place so far! Pretty much everyone seemed fluent in English which I was apprehensive about before I went, I managed to find pretty decent grain & bean salad type things at every restaurant we went to, and the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque were breathtaking. There didn't see...

Re: Monsanto list

I can't remember what it was called, but I watched a documentary about farming and the farmers who worked for Monsanto tried to save seeds, which is a time honored skill in farming/gardening, and were pressured not to so they had to spend far more money buying new seeds every planting season. I don'...

Re: Vay-guns

The title of this thread made me laugh. I've been vegan for almost ten years, and that's still how my mom pronounces vegan. I gave up correcting her long ago. :)

Re: Questions from new vegan re: leather and ignorance

A helpful attitude for me has been to only talk about veganism/animal rights to a receptive audience. If they're not receptive, then they're most likely just going to have the attitude that vegans are preachy and judgmental. And they won't change their ways anyway. I heard about this from one of Veg...

Re: Other things to do at the gym?

At the gym, the only other thing I do besides my normal routine is shoot the breeze with the people in my powerlifting club and try to pick their brains so I can better. It's a really positive environment and I'm grateful that I have finally made friends with them. Outside of the gym, I love riding ...

I never voluntarily do the prowler, but strangely enough, I never mind doing a bunch of burpees.

30 reps?! Holy Mother F'er! The only thing I do 30 or more of is steps on the trail when I go hiking or running!

Re: Super deal on gym membership

Robert, have you seen the commercials for Planet Fitness? They're borderline offensive to anyone who is trying to improve themselves or progress in any way. But yeah, they probably appeal to people who would like to stay out of shape.

Re: Hardcore Talk

How have I always missed this thread? Could be that I've been neglecting this forum for about a year...

Just saw Born of Pain, Naysayer, and First Blood this week. I kind of forgot how much I enjoy First Blood.

Re: Muscles here I come! Lobsteriffic's Log

Running outside is definitely way more interesting, but I bet you're going to feel so great the first time you get on that elliptical!
