I posted an image in the Insiders, but thought I'd share here too. This is a first-of-its-kind LEGO mosaic gun concealment, and though I've noted a few areas for improvement, it turned out pretty awesome.

I recently had the misfortune of meeting a woman who said that she preferred dudes with "dad bods" because muscular guys made her feel inferior and that she doesn't like American beauty standards.

Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser. Loser.

Avoid people like this at all costs. Not just in fitness, but in all aspects of life. Anyone that frowns upon having high standards is a loser whose influence will rot you from the inside.

Only spend time with winners*.

*winners include people who haven't accomplished anything yet, but are on the path to do so.
Ok, so the chick was honest about what is sexually attractive to her.. and you’re calling her a loser?

You and her have different values. No big deal.

No, you misunderstood.

She's saying what someone else should be sexually attracted to, not what she is attracted to.

I mean... Really? These are the people who claim to be tolerant and in support of others' preferences? Lol

Correction: she sets low standards for herself and claims to prefer other people with low standards so that she doens't have to come to terms with the fact that she doesn't take care of herself. She's a bullshitter.

What's up with people who act like "society" has "beauty standards?"

It doesn't make any sense.

Nietzsche has some interesting takes on this, but it ultimately boils down to the fact that people who lack agency like having someone to blame and whine about.

Makes sense.

I mean, as a guy I have what I find attractive and what I don't. Guy friends often agree on some things and disagree on others. That's totally fine.

But it's so bizarre that someone would come up to me and say "you like fit girls over fat girls because you've been brainwashed by [insert dumb collectivist term here]."

Like...No. That's not why. And please, brush your teeth.

What is considered the minimum amount of cash for it to be worth it to dump your money into dividends etc?

It's been a while since I've been to a wedding, so maybe I'm not fresh on how things work, but I got this in the mail and it doesn't sit right with me. It's from a family member I've had no contact with in 15 years or more. Maybe I'm misinterpreting it, but it seems like they want to have a wedding and honeymoon and they want me to pay for it. At my last wedding, I didn't ask anyone for anything.

Also, without this note, I would've sent a gift but probably wouldn't have attended. With the note, I probably won't do either.

Did you point out that fact to her?

No. People like that would never listen.

I know that. You know that. I’m wondering why you’re letting it ruffle you.. which was my original point. But.. this is the rants thread so maybe you just needed to get it off your chest.

Simple: because what's obvious to me isn't obvious to everyone else. The point was to warn 1) people who haven't dealt with this type of garbage and 2) people who have but haven't had the problem articulated to them.

Sweet!!! You'd sell millions of those if you were allowed to advertise.

Enough to generate a 4-figure passive income. A $1000 check a month for doing nothing is always nice. That's about $300,000 @ 4% dividend yield. With inflation running high, you'll have to hope the underlying appreciates.

Also, without this note, I would've sent a gift but probably wouldn't have attended. With the note, I probably won't do either.

I wouldn't either. The invite and presumption is tacky.

oh.

But your values are unique to you. Somebody else might really appreciate her low physical standards. I think ppl would be better served by you pointing out how miserable ppl make themselves by pairing up with someone who doesn’t share their pursuits/passions/beliefs.

You have an amazing story of physical change. There are plenty of great ppl who haven’t put a lot of effort into physicality like you.

Fitness in this case is just a symptom of the real issue, which was the victim psychology that this woman exhibited.

I don't mean for this to come off as boasting (even though I'm anything but humble), but most people won't hit my level physically, and that's fine. Lifting is something that I'm fanatical about, and most people just don't have the time (or have other physical interests like running or MMA). As much as I'd love for everyone to get on my level, it won't happen. Though, I refuse to compromise on certain baseline standards and stand by my conviction that taking care of yourself is a moral duty to both yourself and the people who you care about.

Her issue was that she was rationalizing things away to cope with obvious problems (of which the dad bod piece was just one symptom of many) that made her a ticking time bomb for bigger problems down the road.

Thats sad!
It shows, how desperate they are.

Happiness is waking up to see 62 new members joined the forum.

Disappointment is seeing only 11 of them are legit, the rest are backlinkers, meditation spammers, affiliate marketers, and drive-by promoters.

Choices choices choices.......... Those evil republicans! Even with a fulltime job there is still some time left to work on X or Y.

1617836901123.png

I'm pretty stupid when it comes to political stuff, interesting to see two sides of thought when it comes to political stuff, democrats are this, reps are racist whatever.. but with the ''racist republican'' viewpoint it's fascinating to see proud black republicans and on the flip side black democrats that cry racism. Just a random thought! No politics :smile:

Has anyone ever done wilderness camping? Considering to give it a go this summer, bit worried about being eaten alive by a bear but seems like it would be a nice change of scenery waking up to the sun every morning.

I plan to do it when it gets warmer here. But there's no real wilderness anywhere where I live so it doesn't come with the risk of being eaten by a bear LOL.

Where are you from? Here it's quite common to run into bears, last year I had 3 encounters :wideyed:

I'd imagine going somewhere even more remote would increases the chances of meeting one! Talk about a crap your pants and get a mini heart attack moment LOL. Mountain lions seem worse than bears though, sneaky little cats that attack from behind in silence.... at least with a bear you get a warning growl.

Poland. There are some bears in the mountains but it's still extremely rare (there are only 110 bears in the entire country) and over there, you can't legally wild camp overnight. My biggest "risk" around here would be wild boars but they aren't really a risk.

If you follow basic safety procedures (particularly for bears) I doubt you'll have any problems. But if you do... think of the cool stories :happy:
