We Did It, & Go Fuck Yourselves

      No Comments on We Did It, & Go Fuck Yourselves

I will not be conciliatory. If you want that, go somewhere the fuck else. As you know by now, Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States. Ding, Dong, the witch is dead. Congratulations, President-Elect Trump, Mike Pence, Trump’s family and staff, Trump voters and supporters, and America: the long national nightmare will end on January 20th,… Read more »


      No Comments on Calm

You must find it In the popular culture people often make jokes about going to their “happy place” when something is upsetting or boring. While that is not the way to handle an upsetting or boring situation — you should always be in the present, and aware of what is going on for your own well-being — there is a… Read more »

Surrounding Myself with Happy People And Media

Depressing people are a cancer in your life. Depressing media eats away at you. I’m working to avoid both. There’s nothing good to be had by surrounding yourself with bleak and depressing thoughts. It just serves to lower your own mood and darken your own emotions. Drop it; everything doesn’t have to be sad. When every story ends sadly, sad… Read more »

Sometimes you are fed a bunch of bullshit.

The best solution to this? Close your mouth. When someone tells you, for example, that X doesn’t matter — whatever it is, be it looks or money — look at their actions, not their words. If it’s coming from someone in the top ten percent of rich or attractive people: Stop eating their bullshit. If they’re also in the bottom… Read more »

Firing on All Cylinders

      No Comments on Firing on All Cylinders

A lot of the times when setting a goal, I’ll decide, “Okay, I’ll focus on this one area. If I lapse somewhere else, that’s okay, as long as I improve here. Once this becomes habit, I’ll work on the next area…” The problem with this method so far has been that I stall or fall back on everything else and… Read more »

Manspreading, Manslamming: Stop the Micro-Aggressions.

Lately this has been all in the news — to the extent only some under-inflated balls could make it go away. Mandspreading, it seems, is sitting with a wide stance on public transportation. Manslamming is the newer of the two, and that refers to the act of playing chicken when walking in public: Who moves first? These are both considered… Read more »

Avoid Poison

      No Comments on Avoid Poison

We are, as a species, programmed to avoid things that are poisonous. Ophidiophobia and arachnophobia are simply out of control variations on a natural aversion to snakes and spiders: they may be poisonous, so our ape-brain just wants nothing to do with them. These are two of the more common phobias, but our overreaction to poison isn’t just limited to… Read more »

Juicing with Danger

      4 Comments on Juicing with Danger

Well, I finished the Fit Juice Trilogy, and I’m determined to juice as many days a week as possible. This is juice as in vegetables, not juice as in steroids, for those of you late to the party. I recommend the books to anyone who is looking for a good primer and a collection of recipes. I’ll break the review… Read more »
