A study titled “Where Are They Now?” in 1978 followed up on 515 people who were prevented from attempting suicide using the Golden Gate Bridge from 1937 to 1971. About 90% were either alive or had died of natural causes, concluding “suicidal behavior is crisis-oriented” rather than inexorable. (study)

How do fat acceptance activist rationalize the detriments of being obese?

This is a difficult subject to approach with the majority of society because it’s often met with disbelief due to the lifetime of inaccurate information we’ve been fed. Everything you think you know? Rethink it.

It’s important to note that the creation of our health and fat concern was initially called the “Obesity Parasite.” This started in the late 1800’s and was concocted by the upper class in order to differentiate themselves and reclaim their social power over the lower classes. This wasn’t endorsed by physicians (in fact, they fought it) until the concept became so popular that they caved from the peer pressure. It was created by the people; not the doctors. Did ya hear that? People. Not doctors. Wanna know more about the history behind why we hate ourselves? Well, GOOD NEWS! I’ve compiled it and resources here.

What we believe about health and fat bodies is often inaccurate. Here. Let me blow your mind: Skinny bodies can be unhealthy. Fat bodies can be unhealthy. Skinny bodies can be healthy. And fat bodies can be healthy.What does this mean? It means we must remove weight from the health equation. Period. That leaves us to look at the other signifiers of health. So, check out this list of symptoms compiled in a 2007 UCLA study: “Increased all-cause mortality and to increased mortality from cardiovascular disease. Increased risk for myocardial infarction, stroke, and diabetes, increased high density lipoprotein cholesterol, increased systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and even suppressed immune function.”

What is it like to train on steroids?

This answer is based on testosterone. Other steroids can vary… although broadly similar.

Once they start to kick in, you’ll notice:

  1. Improved strength – nothing crazy, but you will consistently increase your current max weights every week of your cycle. In every exercise. If you have hit a plateau anywhere you’ll smash through it. You need to be careful you don’t damage joints and tendons (although with testosterone the added water helps with this).
  2. Improved endurance. You’ll be able to do more reps and more sets before you run out of power. There’s just more gas in the tank.
  3. Improved focus. It’s much easier to make the mind-muscle connection. Rather then dragging your tired ass through a difficult workout – you’ll be fully focused on every movement and what muscle you are hitting. You’ll be able to channel the added focus/aggression to your goals.
  4. Improved recovery. You’ll be able to hit it hard in the gym every time – because you won’t be sore from the previous punishing you gave yourself. You can train every day of the week without significant soreness. Sometimes you feel like you can train twice a day. I always give the example of my leg day. On cycle I can do an insane squatting session, then wake up the next day like nothing happened. Normally that would be me effectively disabled for a couple of days. I get bad DOMS in the legs… but not on cycle.
  5. Improved libido. Be careful which hot gym girls you look at and what you let wander into your thoughts, because you’ll have yourself a giant unwanted erection. It’s happened to me on a treadmill before to the point where I had to stop!
  6. Overall feeling of well being and that “everything is gonna be ok”.

Ernest Thompson Seton, one of the founding pioneers of the Boy Scouts of America, was presented with an invoice for all the expenses connected with his childhood, by his father, including the fee charged by the doctor who delivered him. He paid the bill, but never spoke to his father again.

Seton called his father “the most selfish man I ever knew, or heard of, in history or in fiction.” He cut off ties completely after being made to pay off an itemized list of all expenses he had cost his father, up to and including the doctor’s fee for his delivery, a total of $537.50.

When a load of beautiful women hang around rich guys, are they paid directly? Just in drinks? Where do they go at the end of the day? Do they hang around rich guys as a job?

Source: I used to work in Las Vegas nightclubs, my friends are hosts at Las Vegas nightclubs and we see/talk about this topic often. We also know many of these girls personally.

There are 3 different types of girls that we’re talking about here.

Atmosphere models, Companions(unpaid atmosphere models), Escorts

Atmosphere Models are attractive girls who are hired by a venue (club/bar etc) to hang out with guests and participate in the day’s activities. They are to dress like normal girls and are not supposed to tell people that they are hired workers, BUT what they do is completely legal. They are hired simply to make the venue look better because ‘hot’ girls hang out there. They are not hired on the basis of being a hooker or an escort. If they happen to have sex with someone after attending the event, that is individual to them and sometimes that happens. I know girls who are atmosphere models who are just normal chicks, they get paid $200 to hang out at the party, and then they go home as soon as they aren’t paid anymore. I also know atmosphere models who fuck rich dudes and go on their boats and all of the above, but they don’t consider themselves escorts, they just hang with the rich dudes and go on vacations with them because it seems like a fun opportunity and also…these girls sometimes want to get wifed up and get married to a rich guy. What better way to meet a rich guy than to be an atmosphere model and get paid to hang around rich dudes. Honestly this is a pretty good business venture for these girls.

What could Conor McGregor have done differently against Khabib to secure a win?

Here is the bottom line on the reality of Conor McGregor versus the mythology that seems to have grown up around the promotional aspects of his fights.

Conor McGregor is a fantastic fighter, but he’s not now, nor really has he ever been a dominant force at lightweight. Conor “made his bones” in MMA essentially cutting massive amounts of weight and fighting as an oversized 145 pounder. In that weight class – yea he was mauling people. 
Conor has only really had 3 opponents at lightweight, and that’s Eddie Alvarez, Nate Diaz and Khabib.

The Alvarez fight was a stellar performance by McGregor, but in it’s proper context it should be viewed as an ideal matchup for him. Alvarez is a beast, but he’s got some of the worst boxing in the sport – for someone with Conor’s timing and range, exposing Alvarez was a walk in the park. Then along came Nate – and suddenly Conor’s left hand didn’t seem as devastating as it appeared at 145 pounds. And Nate can box. The result was an exhausted Conor getting choked out.

According to one legend, the funeral escort of Genghis Khan killed anyone and anything that crossed their path in order to conceal where he was finally buried. After the tomb was completed, the slaves who built it were massacred, and then the soldiers who killed them were also killed (article)

Genghis Khan killed an estimated 40 million people, resulting in a man-made climate change. The Mongol invasion effectively cooled the planet, scrubbing around 700 million tons of carbon from the atmosphere
