    I've always found the focus on the bench press as a metric for overall physical fitness to be a little stupid.

    Its a lift that's pretty easy to cheat on if you want, its probably one of the least muscle-intensive "major" lifts (compared to, say, squats or deadlifts), and its always like--

    "I can bench 200, 250, 300, 400 BRAH! I CAN BENCH 400!"

    Well, ok, do you bench to chest in a 5x5? 5-3-1? 3x8? 3x10? 3x12? Bodyweight? 20% over? 10% under?

    Not saying its a bad lift or anything, but using it as a central metric for muscular health strikes me as unwise.

    I never suggested I did

    but bench pressing was the subject of the discussion.

    When I was little we had rebar and cement and logs and tools and shit.

    Sure, I lost some siblings to construction accidents but I am stronger for surviving.

    why is putting butter on one piece of bread not-gross but putting butter in the middle of two slices is gross.

    you'd think that with a butter sandwich the ratio of butter-to-bread would actually be lower.

    I can bench press the bar you put the weights on to bench press.

    I love squats but they are a pain train. Also, bench is just easy to do alone, generally. Though you should ALWAYS HAVE A SPOT for things, bench has machines and is a pretty easy to exercise to sneak in if you don't want to do dips for 5 minutes straight. (Man, you know you are out of shape if you can't do a single goddamn dip)

    At least I know what's going on with butter shortages. I am knowledgeable about that now at least.

    a standard olympic bar is 45 lbs

    I thought the one I was using was 20 lbs, so I was kinda off by a fair amount.

    You don't just put butter on it!

    butter is like the base

    also you spread it on thinly with a knife

    somehow I doubt a hot butter sandwich involves a thin layer of butter.

    it's pretty much just that

    a) it's much harder to 'fuck up' the bench than the other two major lifts; even though you can have a fucked arch, an incomplete range of motion, and a dimwitted grip, it's mechanically simpler

    b) it primarily invokes the muscles that people care about- or, rather, that is the popular perception. the majority of dudes aren't going 'man, i want a broad, rippling back' or 'i want well developed quads and a strong posterior chain!' or 'i want the full body stimulation of a big muscle group lift!' they're going, man i want some pecs and arms, brah.

    The news service is pretty great, I must say. Best use of a billionaire's money in a long time.

    Right, but the definition of insanity is that you do the same thing while expecting something different to happen.

    I'm expecting to be horribly disappointed.

    The only way to butter bread is butter side down, and I will wage a holy crusade against all those who spread butter differently.

    so I went out to a diner to get dinner and I was sitting at a four person booth eating my poutine

    when this family of four came in and were told they'd have to wait for a few minutes

    i was like 'hey it's no problem i can move to the bar'

    i got thanked so much and so profusely

    it was like i offered to get on all fours and be the table for them

    i am confused

    There's nothing to be confused about. Most people are self centered assholes who wouldn't do anything, especially not for strangers. You did something, even if it was only mildly inconvenient to you, for them, even though you did not know them. And you did it of your own volition and initiative, you were not asked. You did a good thing, and doing good things is a rarity.
