Sons of Anarchy good show, probably as close to a 10/10 as I can expect to see in my life, bare long so I'll just list some good shit about it
-an entirely good cast, usually I'm surprised if I watch something that gives me just a singular lead character that I am genuinely invested in, but even the minor characters in Sons get far more attention than expected, in the beginning Tig is just the hitman who follows orders and also a necrophile, on paper a largely forgettable soldier type, but by the end he's got as much of a character arc as the main character, even Jax's dumbass 5 year old son gets developed
-on a similar note, Gemma specifically, as a general rule I am excessively bored by female characters, as their characterisation can just be summed up by 'I love my husband', can count the number of actually interesting female characters on one hand, and Gemma's one of them, probably just gonna be bad for me in the long term, because in everything else I watch now I'm just going to be wondering if Gemma can be good why this one can't be
-everything matters, there aren't any throwaway encounters, there's nobody that gets introduced in one episode and forgotten immediately afterwards, the shit they do has an effect, even when it goes well there's always a blowback of some sort, which goes a long way in making me retain interest in all of the story, there's not really a bad part, when they had to go to Ireland I figured it was just going to be a get in get out situation, but they had all sorts of shit they had to unpack afterwards
-accordingly, the dialogue is meaningful, back in primary school you'd have to read a page long document and then answer a bunch of questions about it, but 90% of the stuff you read doesn't matter, that's how it feels with most shit out there, but in Sons there isn't really an instance where I felt like I just wanted them to get on it, the dialogue's actually meaningful, and honestly I just like listening to them negotiate business deals and that
-more or less from the get go there's a conflict between Clay, the gunboat diplomat old president, and Jax, the young VP who likes to avoid killing people if he can help it, over time Jax does more extreme shit but it was always proportional, I was kind of predicting that eventually Jax was just become Clay, because that's what happens in a story like that, but he didn't, he did some pretty mental shit, like gouging out Moses' eye and cutting his Post too long.

So, Walt says that Hank's name is Hank and that the nazis should let him go because of that, and his offering. The nazis ask for Hank's opinion on this. By replying that his name is Isaac Schrader instead of Hank Schrader, he is telling the nazis, through biblical allusion, that he wishes to be sacrificed to God (his ideals) rather than to be saved.

The Witcher on Netflix.
Overall I liked it because it has a determinism message but all the scenes with Yennefer were really unnecessary

Just finished binging all 4 seasons of "La casa de papel". It's on Netflix and initially I was put off by the generic sounding name "Money Heist", but holy shit is it good. It's like the best part of every heist movie, condensed into a series with really intense scenarios each episode and great characters.

There's an English dub, but it's much better in original Spanish.

Does anyone here do deadlifts? I'm thinking about working to get a god-tier deadlift. My first goal is to make it up to 405lbs deadlift and then see how far I can take it from there. Right now I can do 255 for 5x5. Any wizbros here with tips?

Right now I'm 80 lbs overweight and need to stop eating so much food. The problem is I'm addicted to food and since I'm a 28 year old virgin, it's not like I have much else to do so it's gonna be hard to cut back on the food. Does anyone also have tips on how to feel full and not feel the need to eat food?

YES oP, deadlifts are how I attained my former physique (it’s gone now due to unrelated injuries). It will release HGH and High Test as long as you don’t jerk off (should not be doing it regardless but the effect compounds so quickly when you do deadlifts). Deadlifts and a few bicep curls will give you massive elbow meat around your biceps (not just your biceps but like those small muscles around them), it really fleshes out your physique

As for the food issue, it’s mostly related to feelings. I solved my eating issue two ways… The first was really difficult and I do not recommend, it was simply eating horribly untasty clean food (like literal actual cold refrigerator turkey) to the exact requires diet amounts. It was miserable and the added misery just led to me acting out in other ways. So I made all my issues go away by learning how to cook REALLY TASTY, but clean, food. If you have a ton of money (I dont i’m destitute lol) you can just buy expensive restaurant food, but I learned to cook mine. I can give you a couple starting recipes but the joy of the good taste while eating clean led me to feel full and have total control over how much I ate, without acting out negatively in other ways. It was a complete positive effctt on me

I do them as part of Stronglifts 5x5, but I'm a little bitch and I barely ever reach 2x bodyweight.

 No.57406

I am doing sumo deadlifts right now, because it puts less strain on my back than conventional deadlifts (since more vertical back angle = using legs more than lower back). Also, since I don't have a rack, I can't do squats, so sumo is the best I can do for overall leg strength. I've been doing it for about two months and was having really good progress, getting up to almost 3 plates.

However I've had trouble with it for two reasons 1) my hip flexor/abductors becomes strained when I spread my feet out very much (I think largely due to poor flexibility from sitting all day) and 2) I can only hold a lot of weight with a mixed grip, which I found out should only be used as a handicap or last resort. For the first problems I've tried stretching and sitting in a squatting/criss-cross position more often, and it seems to have helped.

But when I tried to use the double overhand grip I had a hell of time getting much weight at all off of the ground. So now I've cut back to a little over lmao2pl8… in order to get my grip strength up and further improve my flexibility. It is very humbling, but I recommend you take the same approach if you want to avoid injury, which is much worse than slow steady progress.

 No.57412

>>57406
If you can, try to get a rack so tjat you can squat. Squats really helped my deadlifts a lot, especially with struggling with the weight at certain points in the lift, and especially with my form. A month of Squats realt noticably improved the smoothness of the excercise (deadlifts) for me

 No.57764

I used to do deadlifts a few years ago. I'm just too apprehensive about injuring myself these days. I'm going to start lifting but only using a machine. I know machines are worthless but I don't know what else to do.

Here's my mom's latest recipe in its entirety: stir sauteed cabbage, zucchini, carrot, bell pepper, onion and diced chicken into three packs of instant ramen. Add two flavor packets, chicken broth, parsley and "pirate's bite" spice blend. Exact measurements not known. If you have a vegetable garden, substitute whatever vegetables you have available. Try beef flavor packets with beef broth if your prefer. Quality poverty meal especially if you don't have to buy the vegetables.

Slow-cooked pulled pork and roast beef are great. Chili is great too. You can kind of "doctor" canned chili by mixing in plain canned beans with tomato and onion and letting it simmer. Typical canned chili has too much sodium.

I took slow-cooked roast beef, put in a sandwich with american cheese and grilled it on the stove with butter. It was pretty good but the pieces of beef were too thick and chewy and kept coming out of the sandwich so it was more like eating grilled cheese with a side of roast beef.

I recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.

I especially find the science, technology, futurology, AI videos very uplifting from the usual pessimism I dwell on.

The Thought Emporium
When we think of science and scientists, we tend to think of people in perfect white lab coats, working in a shiny and expensive lab. Well I'm here to break that image. From biohacking and biology, to nuclear physics and nanotech, any topic is fair game. I don't just talk about concept and theory, I do the real science. Under controlled conditions, I'll use high voltage, corrosive solutions, extreme temperatures and more to create some very exciting machines and materials. Best of all, I'll show all of it can be done at home using as many off the shelf and DIY parts as possible.

So you might as well die.
