    But I hate when my family treats it so mythically. It's silly. You watched me do what I had to do to lose weight. There's no secret- if there is, it's out, because you observed me every day as I woke up and ran and lifted weights and ate less crap. Why are you still asking me what my secret is?

    Guh

    So what is your secret? :P

    When people ask me what my secret is I shit on their faces

    Shit has mass

    Once that mass leaves my body, I am lighter

    Ergo I've lost weight

    My secret to weight loss is shitting on the faces of people who inquire about the aforementioned secret

    It's all quite meta

    Weight loss is not mysterious, but it is nonetheless unusual, difficult, and impressive.

    Good job!

    Oh well thank you

    It is indeed difficult

    Getting in shape was the hardest thing I ever did probably, in terms of a long term goal... do you know how rich in fat Palestinian organs are?

    The amount of sympathy you are going to get for effectively saying 'I have to work two hours a day' may be less than you think.

    In other news, I got Livestream to work. Now, to find something that I could stream that wouldn't anger mods. Hm. I can't think of anything, but at least I know it works now.

    I should begin some healthier habits now so that I will be healthy when it begins to matter.

    Me and my girlfriend go on a lot of walks, I don't drink much soda except the occasional Jones (which has no HFCS!), I rarely eat fast food anymore, etc.

    But I would like to start running again. The girl says she is going to make me do stretches, too, so I can be a little more flexible. Also while cutting out some bad foods is good, actively eating healthier would be better and should help me to gain a little weight, right?

    I dunno.

    Man you know a question I find oddly annoying?

    You have two heroes, one man and one woman. They're unarmed. They find a handgun, and a rifle. Which is the least sexist or gender stereotypes distribution of weapons?

    Who the fuck even thinks these things up?

    I guess the most sexist would be if he stopped being a hero and started beating on her and she made excuses to her friends about how she provoked him and really, he loved her, and he's the only one who listens.

    I have no idea about the gun thing.

    Which one has shot either a rifle or pistol before?

    Both are skilled in all weapons approximately equally.

    I have some sympathy because those kind of days suck.

    I never had a class before 10 AM and never had one after 6PM in college. it worked well.

    well, pistols have shit range compared to rifles. So you give the pistol to whoever can get closer to whatever they're trying to shoot

    presumably you're making plans based on strategy instead of genitals

    It feels like a situation where no matter which choice you pick, it would be construed equally wrong. I don't know why. Of course pragmatically it's resolved by killing a bad guy and taking his weapons.

    Actually I just figured it out. Presumably one person is leading this operation if weapon skills are equal, so they take the handgun.

    but a house can have another house added on to it.

    which means of course that the only right thing to do is chain your wife to the kitchen and sell your house with a cook included.

    Or.

    The woman taking the rifle implies that she is to weak and or unskilled to get into or operate well in the shorter range required by the handgun, so she takes the handgun to upset stereotypes blah blah blah.

    The real answer is the man has sex with the woman at gunpoint, because women are sex objects am i rite?
